Psy: My double has more minders

Psy

Psy has joked his impersonator drinks too much pricy champagne.

The South Korean singer made headlines during this year's Cannes Film Festival when a lookalike of him snuck into the event.

Psy's impostor was so convincing he managed to fool numerous celebrities into thinking he was the real deal.

"My Psy impersonator I heard he drunk a lot of expensive champagnes," Psy told BBC Radio 1. "The worst thing was a lot of celebrities had their picture taken with him. He did some performance, that's what I heard. He has three bodyguards and I have one, that's the worst thing."

The singer shot to the top of the charts with his track Gangnam Style and has now followed it up with hit single Gentleman.

The best thing about being famous is getting the chance to meet his idols at high profile events.

Psy attended the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute Gala in New York City earlier this year where he met Madonna.

"I met Beyoncé at the Met Gala, that was kind of cool," he shared. "I'm a huge fan of Queen, so I might work with Brian May one day and do an old Queen song. Queen is very inspirational to me."

Psy's appeal can be seen by his impressive array of record breaking stats. The smiley star was recently awarded with another accolade, ahead of the release of his new album.

"I got my fifth Guinness record, it was for with 100,000 people horse dancing. The most people in one place doing horse dancing. My fifth Guinness," he proudly revealed.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

Spending time on your own will be rewarding. You're an extremely conscientious person who is hyperaware of your surroundings. Sometimes this sensitivity can inhibit you from doing what you really want. You're afraid of offending people with your bold ideas. Instead of repressing your instincts, obey them. If you've developed a romantic interest in someone special, make your move. Playing the aggressor will boost your confidence. Keep your conversations light and playful.More
