Gangnam Style singer Psy has explained his anti-American rant.
The pop star – who had the world at his feet with his catchy tune this year – apologized for track her sang in 2004.
In a statement, he said: "The song I featured on in question from eight years ago - was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two Korean schoolgirls that was part of the overall antiwar sentiment shared by others around the world at that time.
“While I’m grateful for the freedom to express one's self, I’ve learned there are limits to what language is appropriate and I’m deeply sorry for how these lyrics could be interpreted. I will forever be sorry for any pain I have caused by those words."
He continued to explain that he only means to make people smile with his music and sincerely hpes the nation can accept his apology.
He added: "While it’s important that we express our opinions, I deeply regret the inflammatory and inappropriate language I used to do so.
“In my music, I try to give people a release, a reason to smile. I have learned that thru music, our universal language we can all come together as a culture of humanity and I hope that you will accept my apology."
Part of the Dear Americans song featured the lyrics, "Kill those f***ing Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives.
"Kill those f***ing Yankees who ordered them to torture ... Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law and fathers ... Kill them all slowly and painfully.”
