More end-of-the-year Psy News! The 34-year-old singer has been listed at the top of the Top 10 Fleeting Celebrities of 2012 by TIME Magazine. Psy ranked #1 on the list. Here is the excerpt from the website:
"Park Jae-sang is a 34-year-old South Korean who planned to study business before he began tinkering with music. On American shores he is better known as Psy, the rapper-songwriter-producer behind the monster hit 'Gangnam Style.' The earworm beat and the distinctive horse-riding dance that Psy performs in the video combined to make the song a smash. Released in July, the viral sensation mocking Korean pop clichés has racked up over 800 million views on YouTube, surpassing Justin Bieber’s “Baby” video to become the most-viewed video of all time. The married father of two is the first Korean solo artist to have a top single in the U.S., and he is planning to record his next single in English. If it hits big, Psy may no longer be just a fleeting celebrity."
We hope that Psy isn't even considered a fleeting celebrity, but an icon—what do you think?
