HE is currently facing backlash after a 2004 rap he did about killing US troops recently surfaced. But PSY isn’t keeping a low profile despite the controversy surrounding him.

The singer performed his hit Gangnam Style at the Y100 Jingle Ball in Miami on Saturday. The furore seemed the furthest thing from the South Korean star’s mind as he cavorted about the stage, pulling his now famous dance moves in a beige suit jacket, black trousers and undone bow tie.

PSY, 34, is under fire for his actions during an anti-American protest in Seoul in 2004, in which he smashed a model American tank live on stage. He first held the tank above his head, before throwing it to the floor and violently breaking it up with a microphone stand.

The demonstration happened during strong anti-American sentiment in the country after a 50-tonne US armoured vehicle killed two 14-year-old South Korean girls, Shim Mi-seon and Shin Hyo-sun, on their way to a birthday party.

He rapped about 'killing those Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives. 'Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers. Kill them all slowly and painfully.'   –DM
