"Gangnam Style" is almost over. Psy, the 35-year-old South Korean rapper behind 2012's inescapably catchy ear-worm and international dance craze told MTV News that his performance "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" might mark the "ending" of "Gangnam Style."
Being in Times Square on New Year's Eve is already special -- it's the biggest stage in the universe -- plus it's my birthday, so, with all that, it may be the ending of 'Gangnam Style.' I mean, what better way to do it? It's my biggest and most meaningful birthday.
Psy, who turned 35 on New Year's Eve and starred in YouTube's first video to hit 1 billion views, now wants to look beyond his chart-topping hit.
The song became too popular, and so you start to have some concern about its life period.
I'm really working hard on a new single right now, and I'm not saying ['Gangnam'] is ending on Dick Clark -- I still have a lot of invitations to perform it ... I'll be in Paris, and in February I got invited to perform in China, and I've still got to do promo. So let me say that in America I need a new single because 'Gangnam Style' got too popular, so I've got to write a new single.
