Watch Ryan Seacrest Get Down with Psy
Psy is easily one of the most famous people to ever make a YouTube video. From Britney Spears, to Ellen, and now Ryan Seacrest, he’s been bringing his ‘Gangnam Style’ dance and video to anyone he’ll watch. And his determination has allowed him to blow up, waaay up.
‘Gangnam Style’ is up to an amazing 170 million YouTube views (yes, you read that right), and the newest sensation sat down with host of basically everything Ryan Seacrest for a little interview. A breeze, considering he was recently on ‘The Ellen Show’ and taught freakin’ Britney Spears the choreography to his dance.
“I was at Berklee College of Music in Boston, but [I was] a freshman for four years,” he said to Seacrest about how he got into music. “Class was too early for me. Yeah, freshman for four years — I was so fresh, ya know?” Ah, so he’s got a sense of humor too!
But even though ‘Gangnam Style’ is kind of brand new to us in the states, despite the number of views it has received on the site, he’s been practicing music for over a decade in his home country of Korea! “I’m still walking down the street like, ‘Why I’m here? Why I’m here?’ You know, I’ve done this 12 years in Korea, and I’m rookie here now,” he explained. “I never expected I would become a K-pop star.”
And hey! His dance may be corny, but do you have 170 million views on YouTube? Didn’t think so. He has an entire motto for his corniness, after all. “I try to dress classy and dance cheesy.”
And there you have it.
