PSY To End ‘Gangnam Style’ On New Year’s Eve?


It’s hard not to recognize that Psy is kind of a big deal these days.

With his insanely viral smash “Gangnam Style” the most liked video (upwards of a billion) on YouTube, it’s only natural for him to want to dead the single right?

“The song became too popular, and so you start to have some concern about its life period,” he told MTV News.

But before you RIP your Pony dance, Psy will be performing the infectious partystarter on “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” which just so happens to be his birthday. “Being in Times Square on New Year’s Eve is already special — it’s the biggest stage in the universe — plus it’s my birthday, so, with all that, it may be the ending of ‘Gangnam Style,'” he says. “I mean, what better way to do it? It’s my biggest and most meaningful birthday.”

The Korean pop performer also has big plans for 2013, including another single he assures will be a hit. “I’m really working hard on a new single right now, and I’m not saying [‘Gangnam’] is ending on ‘Dick Clark’ — I still have a lot of invitations to perform it … I’ll be in Paris, and in February I got invited to perform in China, and I’ve still got to do promo.”

For now, Americans will have to let the Gangnam record breathe in the new year before Psy unleashes another banger.
