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.

A home improvement project will grind to a halt. Someone who is close to your heart may need some peace and quiet. Be prepared to send a repair professional away while your loved one recovers. If you're renting a space, your landlord may tell you to leave with very little notice. Stay calm. It will be easier to find new living arrangements if you remain logical. Spread the word on social media. Be specific about your needs. A friend or acquaintance may hear of somewhere suitable for you.More
