Psy – Mister Gangnam Style – visits a Florida shopping mall today.

UD reminds her readers that he has a date with UD‘s daughter (known here as La Kid), this weekend, where on Saturday she will rehearse with him, and on Sunday perform with him, in the annual Christmas in Washington event.

Program director Tommy Chuck said the singer’s appearance in Tampa was almost cancelled.

Psy was booked to perform Sunday during the station’s annual Jingle Ball concert at the Tampa Bay Times Forum, Chuck said. Sunday’s concert features pop singers Justin Bieber, Ke$ha, One Republic and others.

But Psy received an invitation from President Barack Obama to perform at the White House on the same day.

“When the president of the United States asks you to perform at the White House, well, you have to go,” Chuck said.

Chuck said he was able to work a deal to have the singer instead appear at the station’s Jingle All the Way event at University Mall.

Actually, unless he has a smaller, extra concert, in mind, Psy will be appearing not at the White House but at the National Building Museum.

La Kid, who has performed with Bruce Springsteen (at Obama’s first inauguration, and at the Super Bowl), Justin Bieber, Sting, Jennifer Hudson (La Kid‘s the blond who shows up at 0:37) and other dignitaries, is perhaps not all that star-struck at this point…

I just woke her up to ask how she feels about performing with Psy.


She also said: “I don’t know if I’ll be performing with him. It’s not clear that the chorus will be on the stage when he’s performing. I don’t think it’s been decided yet.”

She went back to sleep.

    This guy?
    Why he’s perfect for Obama’s White House.
