President Obama greets Psy (dude from Gangam Style) at holiday concert amid controversy over anti-American lyrics. Psy rapped “Kill those f---ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives" during a 2004 concert protesting Korean involvement in the Iraq war, and tension has been built up ever since.
Obama Grooves to Gangam Style (9 photo)
Psy, who apologized for his offensive anti-American performance, smiled as he shook hands with President Obama at the "Christmas in Washington" concert on Sunday. Good one, Psy.
Decked out in red sequins, Psy waited backstage to perform his hit "Gangnam Style" for President Obama and his family.
Obama, who refrained from doing the Psy’s “sexy horse” dance during the performance, was sure to praise the sacrifice of American troops during a brief speech to the crowd.
President Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama and their daughters Sasha and Malia posed with former patients of the Children’s National Medical Center, who were dressed as elves for the holiday concert. Before the show, the Obama family presented a basket of books to four pint-sized former patients of the center, who were dressed as elves for the occasion.
And yes, Conan was there too.
