At the time, PSY was studying business administration, but was only interested in music, and his grand aspirations were apparent early on. He would put on karaoke shows and after his friends would joke that nobody with PSY’s looks will become famous, he’d respond, “”I will make it! I’m going to be a star! Just you watch!”
PSY himself probably won’t be contesting this account any time soon. In his Reddit AMA last year, when asked about his subsequent time at Berklee College of Music, PSY responded thusly: “unfortunately i didn’t attend class that much. sorry! when i was in college i was young and stupid so i thought i cannot learn creative things from other people like professors. i taught myself. but nowadays sometimes i regret but things worked out ok.” “OK” meaning: broke every YouTube record, made some $8 million from one music video and got to speak at the Oxford Union.
So listen up, kids — fuck school and go get that viral caish.
