Proving that dreams do in fact come true on the night of New Year’s Eve, worldwide internet phenomenon PSY announced that tonight’s Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve will play host to his final “Gangnam Style” live performance in North America. Let us say that once more, because we simply cannot get enough of how sweet it sounds: “Gangnam Style.” Last time. In North America. As in EVER! While PSY will still be performing “Gangnam Style” and its signature dance in other countries around the world as a farewell tour of sorts, North Americans can be the first to finally stop stuffing cotton and other nearby objects into our ears to muffle the auditory garbage. Let’s not get too ahead of ourselves, though, because according to sources, one rubbish song-and-dance from PSY apparently begets another.
In an interview with MTV News, PSY has stated that due to “Gangnam’s Style” obnoxiously overwhelming popularity and the public’s running it straight into the ground, he has been given no alternative than to craft another single — possibly co-written by longtime collaborator Satan. On this shattering development, he said:
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.
Yeah, so, if you need us for anything tonight, we’ll most likely be slouched in our recliners at home throwing a champagne bottle at the TV when PSY starts performing. 2013 is going to be fantastic year, no?
