Billie Joe Armstrong Calls Korean Pop Star PSY The 'Herpes Of Music'

Billie Joe Armstrong
Billie Joe Armstrong has given his opinion on Korean pop sensation PSY, calling the singer the "herpes of music."

The "Gangnam Style" singer was busy taking over the music charts last year while Armstrong was fighting substance abuse issues, and when PSY released second single "Gentlemen" earlier this year, it prompted a response from the Green Day frontman.

"This dude is the herpes of music," the punk rocker wrote on his Instagram page. "Once you think it's gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway."

No one's ever said anything like that about Green Day.

PSY has done it again. The South Korean pop star is breaking records with his catchy new song "Gentleman."

PSY Shows The Meaning of Chivalry In His Newest Music Video, 'Gentleman'

4/15/2013 2:15pm EDT
South Korean pop-idol PSY released the new music video for his latest single "Gentleman" over the weekend. Let's just say it has all the comedic spice that made "Gangnam Style" so fun to watch repeatedly, even if the song isn't quite as catchy. The song is good, probably better than most, but it just isn't as fun to listen to as it is to watch.

When the current baktun of the Mayan calendar comes to a close on December 21, 2012, many prophecies say the world will end.

The sun will rise and life will probably go on as usual tomorrow, but for now we've come up with a list of celebrities that -- if the world does end -- you won't miss.

A Brief Glimpse Of Stardom: 10 Celebs Who Had Their 15 Minutes Of Fame In 2012

Not every star can have the longevity of a Michael Caine. Some enjoy the lights for stardom for all but a few brief moments. Here are the stars who had their 15 Minutes of Fame in 2012:

Jeremy Lin - Lin was the talk of New York during the 2011-2012 NBA season, when he became the breakout star of the Knicks. He was on the cover of every sports section during the height of "Linsanity," and even got on the cover of TIME magazine. Now? He's playing for the Houston Rockets, where he averages 10 points and 6 assists per game. Not bad, but certainly not cover-of-Time-magazine good.
