Billie Joe Armstrong likens Psy to viral STD, Psy ‘kinda likes’ it

Ah, isn’t that Psy a nice, polite popstar (a mother father gentleman, one might say)? Always looking on the bright side, always appreciative of any compliment. A class act.

Like when Billie Joe Armstrong was so kind as to liken Psy’s prevalence (in the pop charts) to that of herpes (in the STD charts). Airing his anti-Psy FYI via Instagram earlier this week, Armstrong – in no way a hypocrite given the trio of LPs Green Day released in 2012 – captioned an Instagram image of the K-Pop character with “This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway”.

Psy’s answer? “I kinda like it, it’s cool. He said I’m like the herpes… that keeps coming back. I think it’s really cool. Thank you”.
