YG Entertainment recently announced that CL was in the process of working on an upcoming release which would be promoted to audiences in the United States. American listeners have recently become interested in the music of 2NE1 due to the usage of I Am The Best in a commercial for Microsoft.

He spoke ill of them by saying, "They will vote for this president no matter whatThese are people who pay no income taxpeople, only to face a strong backlash after Romney`s comments were seen as despising low-income people.

Binders full of women are also words that Romney used to highlight his efforts to hire women by looking into binders full of womens resumes in the second TV presidential debate. This also incited criticism because it made look as if he knew so few eligible women that others had to find them for him.

"Eastwooding" means acting like Clint Eastwood. The word grew popular in U.S. politics after the veteran actor and movie director ridiculed President Obama as incompetent in the Republican convention as a surprise presenter by talking to an empty chair as if Obama was sitting there.

YOLO is the acronym for "You only live once" and used as an interjection when someone is considering doing something risky. Also included on the Words of 2012 list was the compound word DOGA, or Yoga with a dog.

As of now, the official music video for "Gangnam Style" has had over 212 million views on YouTube, but PSY doesn't plan to change any of the lyrics to appeal to his new fanbase. He commented, "The Korean version is what everyone fell in love with, after all.

Before the horse dance helped him receive huge popularity, the bird dance from his debut song "Bird" also has a significance. He stated, "I've done this 12 years, and I've done these kinds of moves my entire career, so actually I have several more left. So, I'm going to make some new songs with my old moves."

Meanwhile, PSY was recently signed by Scooter Braun to Schoolboy Records, and PSY shared his impressions of the manager: "When I see Scooter Braun I feel like I'm watching a mirror because we have really same character mental-wise, working hard, not sleeping, working hard, partying hard, drinking hard and then working hard, loving life, loving music," Psy said. "When we talk together we are brother from a different mother. He was the very first manager that I met in the U.S., but he was the first and last because we are so similar."

PSY also appeared on NBC's "Extra" earlier this week for a flashmob and live interview, and he is scheduled to appear on the "Ellen" show on September 19th (PST).
