Psy Apologizes for Anti-American Performances

"Gangnam Style" singer Psy issued an apology Friday in reponse to widespread reports about his participation in two anti-American concerts a decade ago in his native South Korea.

Rolling Stone magazine sources to several reports in Korean media outlets, in 2002 Psy smashed a model of a U.S. tank into the stage at a concert in protest of a tragic incident that occured in June of that year, when a U.S. military vehicle ran over two 14-year-old Korean girls. The driver of the vehicle was later acquitted, leading to months of protests against the American government.

Two years later, Psy joined other artists onstage at a protest concert to perform the song "Dear America," written by the South Korean metal band N.E.X.T.. Psy sang along to the lyrics, "Kill those Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers/Kill them slowly and painfully."

Tom’s Take: After America shows him the money, he changes his tune. This media freak's 15-minutes are up.
