Korean Rapper PSY Cracks Jokes At Harvard
Arousing a fact of interest, South Korean rapper PSY was welcomed to Harvard University on Thursday night by dozens of screaming and shouting students and fans, as the "Gangnam Style" star participated in a conversation inside an ornate church dedicated to the memory of those who lost their lives in World War I.
PSY proceeded addressing students and faculty by noting that his presence at the Ivy League school “is so weird.”
Furthermore, he was known to have recalled spending four years studying management at Boston University while marveling at Harvard from afar. PSY joked about his academic performance while at school in Boston, saying he was known by a nickname of WWF — which, he said, stands for withdrawal, withdrawal, failure.
In fact, the pop star, whose real name happens to be Park Jae-sang, also joked that he is heard that he is the first person to make a speech at Harvard without a written script.
Harvard professor of Korean History Carter Eckert says the discussion is looking at PSY as a modern global digital culture phenomenon.
PSY cracked jokes throughout this speech and said he was very shocked as his “Gangnam Style” video went viral. He also mentioned that he was overwhelmed by its success and doesn’t realistically expect to replicate the feat. “Gangnam Style” was YouTube’s most-viewed video with more than 1.5 billion views, while his new single, “Gentleman” has more than 300 million views.
PSY continued saying that Gangnam style was not normal and that it was not standard rather that was an accident and accidents don’t happen often. It seems that he wondered aloud why American TV news shows start so early, joking that he had a brutal experience waking up early for rehearsal for appearances on morning news shows while he said that he recalled joining Madonna for rehearsal, saying he was surprised when she told him that he can touch her body anywhere while they were on stage.
To conclude, he said he cannot say he have been the best, but he can say have done his best for 13 years as a musician.
That's just crazy!
