(Getty Images, WireImage)Countless pop songs have been called infectious or contagious. Green Day frontman Billie Joe Armstrong went one step further and called Korean superstar PSY an actual disease.
“The dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway," Armstrong wrote on Instagram Tuesday. He also posted a picture of PSY, whose international hit “Gangnam Style” remains an epidemic.
When Asked to reply to Armstrong’s dig during an interview with Fuse News, PSY said, “Herpes? What is herpes?” When told it’s a “sexually transmitted infection,” PSY, whose command of English is limited and who didn’t seem to understand the insult replied, “Oh, hmm. I kinda like it. It's cool.”
In addition to being unaware of the definition of herpes, PSY didn’t know who Armstrong was.
