Green Day front man Billie Joe Armstrong has called YouTube sensation PSY “the herpes of music.”
NME is reporting that Armstrong lashed out at the Gangam Style singer on his Instagram account. Armstrong posted a picture of the South Korea singer and posted this caption:
“This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway”.
Psy has since responded to Armstrong’s comments. After having to explain what herpes was to Psy, he gave Fuse his answer, “I kinda like it, it’s cool. So he’s saying I’m like herpes? I should say something to him. What was his name? Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day, he’s saying I’m like herpes, it keeps coming back. I think it’s really cool and I appreciate that. Thank you.”
Maybe someone needs to re-explain to Psy what exactly herpes is. You know, use visual aids or something.
