Psy may be many things — singer, entertainer, dancer, someone who makes women sniff his farts — but one thing he isn’t, according to Psy, is a guy with herpes. In fact, he’s never even heard of herpes (ignorance is bliss, which is why those red dots on my lips are cold sores). Yesterday Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong uploaded a picture of Psy to his Instagram with a caption reading, “This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway,” because punk? Fuse asked Psy what he thought of BJ’s comments. He was confused.
Psy admitted that he didn’t know what herpes was…Once Psy had it explained to him that herpes is a sexually transmitted disease that is hard to get rid of and often comes back when the person affected thinks it has gone away, the K-pop star responded: “I kinda like it, it’s cool. So he’s saying I’m like herpes? I should say something to him. What was his name? Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day, he’s saying I’m like herpes, it keeps coming back. I think it’s really cool and I appreciate that. Thank you.” (Via)
Apparently Bille Joe has forgotten the number of guys and girls who got their first STD to Good Riddance (Time of Your Life).” Wear your herpes proudly. (Note: UPROXX does not recommend wearing your herpes proudly.)
