If you thought that PSY has already achieved everything he could with his hit song ‘Gangnam Style‘, you are wrong. It was just revealed that TIME magazine selected PSY as a nominee for the prestigious ‘Person Of The Year 2012’ title!
TIME stated: ‘How many times have you watched it? Korean rapper Psy’s slick, wickedly satirical video “Gangnam Style” broke all kinds of sound barriers this year, clocking more than 820 million YouTube views — and counting. The über-ambitious Seoul music industry watched in amazement as the eccentric 34-year-old hip-hop artist, gleefully skewering the music machine that made him, managed to go where no Korean performer had gone before. The rest of us just danced. We’ll have Psy to thank on the inevitable day when we do the horse dance for our grandkids at a wedding. And they’ll have Psy to thank for the great Korean bands on whatever device they’ll be using to listen to music.’
PSY was nominated alongside US President Barack Obama as well as North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and many,many more.
You can vote for PSY and see the full list of nominees here. Voting closes at 11:59 pm on December 12th, and the winner will be announced on December 14th.
