    <p>He did indeed perform for the troops on Leno’s Thanksgiving show; skip to 3:25 of the first clip below and watch him do the horse dance with full military backing. That looks twice as surreal today as it did then and it looked darned surreal at the time, but his PR team will use it to full effect to buy him some forgiveness with the public. He’ll get leeway too from the fact that he is, after all, the goofy horse-dance guy. A musician known for more introspective work would be held to full account for his political opinions but this is a bit like finding out that LMFAO thinks 9/11 is an inside job. (They don’t. I’m speaking hypothetically.) Between that and the fact that he apologized, sort of, for how the song “could be interpreted,” Obama’s spokesman felt safe enough to say this afternoon that O still plans on attending the upcoming TNT benefit concert at which Psy is scheduled to perform. Fearless prediction: That’ll change if people are still talking about this on Monday, not so much in terms of POTUS’s attendance as Psy’s.</p>

    PSY, the wildly popular Korean rap/pop star who hit it big on YouTube with his viral “Gangnam Style” video, seems so warm and friendly. Scratch beneath the surface, though, and you find anti-American rot: ... He’d get along swell with troop-hating Soulja Boy or cop-killer advocates Ice-T and NWA... PSY will be performing for the White House in a Christmas extravaganza airing on TNT Dec. 21.

    Complete headline: rescind invite to Gangnam Style rapper PSY to perform for Pres. Obama at Christmas party over troop killing song lyrics We request President Obama rescind his invitation to the Gangnam Style rapper PSY to perform for him at the Christmas in Washington celebration this month because of the rapper's vicious anti-American song lyrics. In 2004, PSY reportedly performed a song entitled, Dear America, that contained the following lyrics (profanity edited): "Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers Kill them...

    omeone has finally removed Justin Bieber from his YouTube throne. South Korean rapper PSY and his hugely popular Gangnam Style video officially surpassed Justin Bieber’s Baby over the Thanksgiving weekend, notes YouTube’s Trends blog. As of Sunday morning, Gangnam Style had more than 815 million views while Baby was a few hundred thousand short of 805 million. Bieber’s video has been at the top since July 2010 and remains hugely popular with as many as 500,000 views a day. Yet that’s nothing compared with how quickly PSY’s video rose to the top. Lots of searches for the video were first...

    ChannelMeter has produced a nifty chart predicting that Korean Pop Star, PSY’s Gangnam Style video will hit 1 billion views on YouTube in December and become the first video to do so (see below). That he will displace Justin Bieber‘s “Baby,” is a delicious irony considering the fact that Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, is now PSY’s champion for growth outside of Asia. The chart was brought to my attention by Alexis Madrigal’s Atlantic post on Friday. What Madrigal may not have been aware of, though, was the lively discussion on Stack Exchange about how to statistically model this phenomenon. A...

    With less than two weeks left in the blurr of presidential debates and campaign ads and slogans, we are left holding our collective heads like the famous picture, "The Scream." Obama has certainly taken his bid for reelection in directions hitherto unseen in presidential campaigns in what can only be deemed in the current vernacular -- Gangnam-Style: a pulsing, hypnotic beat interspersed with unintelligible words and phrases and flashing psychotropic images. In the first debate, villianous "Snidley Whiplash" Romney to the Left (Dudley Do-right to the rest) mentioned that he would cut public funding to Corporation for Public Broadcasting, home...
