We're really bummed to hear about this, as Psy really does seem like a light-hearted, genuine guy. International fame explosions, though, can be very hard on whoever is at the receiving end of all the attention. How would YOU handle having to be everywhere at once with the flip of a switch??
Psy has admitted to having a drinking problem, one that sees him partaking whether he's happy OR sad. It's vicious cycle, and here's what he had to say about it:
"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."
So when is he not drinking?
"When I'm hungover."
Not only is the fame to blame, but other things as well — not the least of which is his childhood and his abusive father. He also smokes like a chimney and attributes part of his issues to his need for attention and his time in jail.
His main squeeze is vodka, but he'll also drink whiskey, tequila, and 'whatever.'
We're not sure he's even taking steps to correct this major problem, according to the interview. All we can really say is that we hope he can get it under control — or better yet, stop altogether!
You can do it, Psy!!
