PSY receives invitation to attend the U.S. MTV Awards
PSY will be attending one of the world’s most prestigious music award show, MTV Video Music Awards (VMA).
It has been reported that PSY was formally invited to attend the 2012 MTV VMA, which is set to be held on September 6th at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Only award nominees and performers are usually invited to the video music award show, but with the recent global popularity of “Gangnam Style,” MTV has extended an official invitation to the rapper.
It was revealed that PSY’s VMA participation was influenced by the role of Justin Bieber’s agency. This appearance seems like quite the opportunity for PSY to prepare his entry into the U.S. music industry.
PSY has been quite busy nowadays due to his domestic activities and his trips overseas. He recently returned from a trip back from Los Angeles after visiting Scooter Braun, the talent manager heading Justin Bieber’s agency. PSY will leave to participate in the VMA ceremony, in which he will stay for an additional two weeks. It is said that he is scheduled to appear on a famous talk show.
Meanwhile, PSY continues to reign YouTube charts as the #1 watched video as he nears 100 million views, a first for a Korean singer to reach the number so quickly. He is currently at 97 million views.
