Billie Joe Armstrong of Green Day, fresh out of treatment with a clear head, has said this about the YouTube sensation behind Gangnam Style and Gentleman, “This guy is the Herpes of Music.” His twitter followers love the stuff. PSY fans, well, not so pleased, I’m sure.
The full Armstrong tweet: “The dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back.” He followed that with three hash-tags: #herpes, #flareup and #pleasegoaway.
How has PSY handled this bad press is good press situation?
“I kind of like it, it’s cool,” he said. “He said I’m like the herpes… that keeps coming back. I think it’s really cool. Thank you.”
