Signs PSY isn’t going away anytime soon: The music video for his latest tune, “Gentleman,” is closing in on 7 million views already. It was uploaded today. It features a dance he calls the “arrogant dance,” which matches the tone of the music video, where PSY pulls pranks on whatever person is in the current scene.

UPDATE: Now at 18 million.

What Psy is thinking today about Gangnam Style.

You may think the song is annoying, but you have to admit it’s awesome to see how quickly YouTube can help spread cultural currency like this worldwide. Congrats to PSY.

Sad Story: UK resident Eamonn Kilbride collapsed during his office Christmas party while mimicking the “Gangnam Style” dance made famous by South Korean superstar PSY. The IT manager and father of three was with his wife, who was celebrating her birthday that evening, and was described by her as the “life of the party.” Kilbride is survived by his wife Julie and three children Laurajade, Jack, and Conor.

PSY is not “another rapper”: Why Washington journalists should leave the pop culture stuff alone
In what might be an all-time low for Washington political journalism in terms of understanding cultural context, CBS News lumps PSY (he of “Gangnam Style”) in with “rappers” who have caused controversy at the White House, despite a) The situation touching upon clear cultural differences between the U.S. and South Korea during a particularly poor time for relations between the two countries and b) PSY being nothing like Kanye West, who Obama once jokingly called a “jackass.” This article also refers to a controversy involving Cee-Lo Green, who raps but is far better known to the public as a risk-taking R&B artist, and a song (“Fuck You”) in which he doesn’t actually rap. Lumping PSY, who apologized for the incident and noted the incident was a product of its time, into the same boat as some stupid made-up incident with the rapper Common, is totally a misrepresentation of the situation — and an attempt to taint the president with bad press over something that happened at a time when Obama wasn’t even a senator. Leave the pop culture to Tumblr, guys.

Like “Gangnam Style”? You’re not alone by a long shot — in fact, if Psy’s video’s popularity keeps up at its current pace, it will hit 1 billion views on YouTube by the end of the year — the first video to ever hit that tally.
