Psy - Psy Was Told To Have A Facelift

Korean pop sensation Psy has told how music bosses urged him to undergo cosmetic surgery to enhance his looks before he found fame.

The Gangnam Style hitmaker, who made history this month (Oct12) as the first South Korean pop star to top the U.K. charts, admits he was horrified when label chiefs demanded he undergo a drastic image overhaul.

He recalls, "The agency heard my raps and were picturing a six-foot tall, sharp-looking, trendy guy. But the Ceo opened our meeting with the statement, 'What are we going to do with this?' Staff said, 'How about we make him wear a cool mask?'

"Everyone was coming up with solutions to my 'looks problem'. They said, 'How about a bit of plastic surgery here and there?'

"The Ceo's response to that was, 'Just a bit?' In the end they reached no conclusions and just walked out of the room."

Psy has since found success around the globe - his video for Gangnam Style has been viewed over 353 million times on YouTube.com, making it one of the most watched clips of 2012.
