PSY sorry over anti-US comments

PSY has apologised for anti-US comments he made in 2004

PSY is apologising to Americans for participating in anti-US protests several years ago.

Park Jae-sang, who performs as PSY, issued a statement on Friday after reports surfaced that he had participated in concerts protesting the US military presence in South Korea during the early stages of the Iraq war.

At a 2004 concert he rapped about killing "Yankees" who have been torturing Iraqi captives and their families.

The 34-year-old Gangnam Style rapper said the protests were part of a "deeply emotional" reaction to the war and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls.

He said he "will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words."

Earlier, the White House confirmed President Barack Obama and his family will attend a charity concert on December 21 where PSY is scheduled to perform.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Wanderlust may be too powerful to resist. Planning a long holiday will be a pleasant diversion from work. You don't have to have fancy accommodation. You're willing to rough it for an adventure, but you do want to get good value for your money. Doing some research into the best places to stay and eat will pay off handsomely. Take along a friend who is free spirited and eager to explore unfamiliar vistas. The two of you will make great travelling companions.More
