So PSY becomes a worldwide phenomenon within 2 months, and he is reaping everything that he can right now.

MTV gave him like 20 seconds, it felt like they missed a chance for a spontaneous moment, which kind of is why no one gives a **** about the VMA's in general because there are no longer moments like that on them.

This song/video doesn't come off as gay to anyone else? Just the style of it... I dunno. Kinda fruity.

i was disappointed in his appearance but part of it is the VMA's are so lame these days its unbelievable how bad that awards show has gotten. it was at least watchable back in the day especially when Chris Rock hosted but i was struggling to get thru it just to see PSY it was so bad. eventually i gave up and just watched the highlights. isn't the host this year E'zelle(sp?) from Friday btw? i thought he was funny in the movie but he was horrible hosting it. and PSY's scripted lines to speak korean was such a bomb altho the audience was awful too. Rihanna comes across as a diva bitch with the way she reacted to PSY, at least Katy Perry was digging it.

i want PSY to succeed but i just can't see it happening in the U.S. market. its unfortunate.

thats part of the problem i see with Kpop and really the world music market vs America. from what i've seen America is really into males acting hard or macho, while overseas males acting/looking more feminine/metrosexual is more accepted it seems. if you think PSY/Gangnam Style is fruity, you're going to think 95% of male Kpop artists are gay. i think part of it is they're much more censored over there and theres a lot more innocence and cutesy. I think we're generally more cynical in America and it shows in our tastes towards things. i'd never have realized that until i started getting into all of this crap, its been sort of an awakening.

I was following on twitter and people really badly wanted him to perform. But that would have meant 3 minutes of MTV not pushing the same ten artists over and over so they didn't do it.

its their looks and styles, and the way a lot of them act. in America a lot of performers especially in hip hop but even other genres tend to act tough or hard, but from what i've seen of Kpop a lot of them are pretty feminine in their styles and looks. I'm not criticizing them since to me they tend to look more stylish and like i said i think Korea at least, is a very innocent/censored culture for the most part, but to an American audience i think a lot of people would see them as fruity or gay. some males even do aegyo(cutesy look) sometimes and you'd never see something like that with an American male performer(even most American females never do any 'aegyo'). a lot of their hair styles are rather feminine imo, where its like perms or how females do short hair type of looks and most of them tend to color their hair. again not saying they're gay, since its normal or accepted more over there, but here in America i just think thats how a lot of people see it. it just seems like we're a much more close minded society in America than the rest of the world.

It's just pop music, kpop is the same as American pop music, Bieber, Justin Timberlake, boy bands, girl bands, etc.

Not just their clothing or appearance though. Things like dancing like this with men in the video.



Beiber and American boy bands definitely seem kind of fruity by nature too, but I don't think they dance with other men in brightly colored clothing like that. Do they?

lol i don't really find that too fruity more than someone doing a dumb/funny dance. i thought the scene with PSY wearing a towel like a female while staring at some dudes chest was gayer.
