PSY has officially made YouTube history as his popular video for ‘Gangnam Style’ became the first video to hit 1 billion views! 

“PSY’s success is a great testament to the universal appeal of catchy music– and er, great equine dance moves,” YouTube said in a statement. ” In the past, music distribution was mostly regional. It was more difficult to learn about great artists from around the world. But with a global platform at their fingertips, people are now discovering and sharing amazing music from all over the planet, by artists like Brazilian Michel Teló and Belgian-Australian Gotye.”

But the news hasn’t been all positive for PSY. Earlier this month, he was forced to apologize for anti-American remarks at a 2004 concert protesting the U.S. military presence in South Korea during the early stages of the Iraq war.

“While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one’s self, I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted,” he wrote in the statement. “I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words.”
