WASHINGTON – A holiday concert attended Sunday by President Barack Obama and his family included some non-traditional entertainment this year: a performance by South Korean rapper and Internet sensation PSY.
PSY – wearing an all-red outfit including a sparkling, sequined top – was backed by dancers wearing reindeer antlers as he performed his popular “Gangnam Style” dance, which mimics riding a horse.
The rapper, born Park Jae-sang, had apologized Friday for using what he called “inflammatory and inappropriate language” during anti-U.S. protests at concerts in 2002 and 2004. The flak from his remarks didn’t dampen the festive holiday mood Sunday.
Until last week I didn't know what Gangnam Style was. Do you think PYS's inclusion in the holiday benefit concert attended by the President and his family was appropriate?
