Quoted: Psy might have a drinking problem, among other problems

(Kyle Gustafson for The Washington Post)


“If I’m happy, I’m drinking, if I’m sad, I’m drinking. If it’s raining, I’m drinking, if it’s sunny, I’m drinking. If it’s hot, I’m drinking, if it’s cold, I’m drinking.”


— Psy, the seemingly cheerful star behind “Gangnam Style,” revealing an off-stage persona more reminiscent of the late Amy Winehouse or George Jones circa 1975 than you’d expect, in an interview with the UK Sunday Times. Poignant stuff: Jail time, bad dad, rough chldhood. Who knew? What’s his poison? “Whisky, vodka, tequila, whatever.”
