Psy to perform in Washington after apology for anti-American remarks
WASHINGTON (AFP) - South Korean superstar Psy, famed for his Gangnam Style mega hit, will perform as planned Sunday for a United States audience that includes President Barack Obama, after he apologised for anti-American remarks.
In 2002, the singer smashed a model US tank at a protest over the US presence in his country and the death of two South Korean teenagers who were struck by an American military vehicle.
Two years later, he joined a performance of a song that made reference to the US-led invasion of Iraq, using controversial expletive-laden lyrics calling for the killing of "Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives".
"Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers. Kill them all slowly and painfully," he rapped.
