At a news conference in Singapore on Saturday, South Korean pop music sensation Psy admitted that he sometimes gets sick of his massive hit.
But he will continue to perform the "Gangnam Style" number that made him world-famous. During the conference, he was modest about his fame and said he was just another person doing his job. He said: "Sometimes, honestly, yes I get tired or I get sick of it because I got so many requests to teach them, you know, like average let me say 50 requests per city, per country," he continued, "I already taught the dance to so many people, so many times but still the dance makes me here, to make a press conference in Singapore, so of course sometimes I'm tired about it, but I got to do it, it's my job," he added.
But Psy said that despite the many times he has performed the number, "I really like the dance still." He later performed the dance in front of cheering fans outside a Singapore landmark, the high-rise Marina Bay Sands casino complex.
The song has also earned Psy a nomination in the "People's Choice" category of Time Magazine's "Person of the Year 2012" contest, together with other newsmakers such as US President Barack Obama, China's Communist Party head Xi Jinping and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. But Psy played down his chances of topping that chart. "I feel really strange and weird why I'm there," he said. "It's not going to happen, I think, and I don't deserve that much. I just did my job."
Psy is currently fourth in the online rankings out of 40 candidates.
It's addictive music and horse dance moves make it impossible to get tired of this multi-record breaking number.
