Justin Bieber Manager Boards the Gangman Style Bandwagon, Signs Korean Pop Viral Sensation
Korean pop singer Psy is already an international internet sensation thanks to his viral video for "Gangnam Style," which has already racked up over 100 million views on YouTube capturing the attention of Justin Bieber's manager.
Scooter Braun, owner of Schoolboy Records, has already signed the Korean pop sensation putting him on the same galaxy than titans Justin Bieber and Carly Rae Jepsen. "There is one reason to do this deal ... to be a part of history, to do something no one has ever done before," explained Braun of his overnight decision to sign the viral sensation. "Psy is a guy you want to root for. I LOVE UNDERDOGS," he added.
Psy will be performing at the 2012 MTV Video Music Awards as a VIP guest and special performer, as spotted at the MTV VMA Pre-show rehearsal; and confirmed by a September 6 late night tweet -- close to 1 AM PT.
The 2012 MTV Video Music Awards are set to go live from Staples Center in Los Angeles on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET/PT, with both of Braun's most famous acts -- Bieber and Rae Jepsen -- as two of the night's favorites to dominate the ceremony. However, no amount of "Boyfriend" or "Call Me Maybe" will top Psy's awesome and incredibly catchy tune and video. Am I the only one around here who can't get enough of this? Enjoy:
