The K-Pop star speaks about his recent meeting with the American leader.

PSY has revealed that US President Barack Obama told him that he has had to stop doing the 'Gangnam Style' dance at the White House because he embarrasses his family with the moves.

The singer was a recent guest of the American Leader for the Christmas in Washington benefit and spoke about his meeting with President Obama.

"He told me he's good at 'Gangnam Style' but that the ladies at his house are embarrassed when he's dancing so he's not doing it," he revealed to the Hollywood Reporter.

Earlier this year, PSY sent out a special message with Capital FM to the US leader asking to come to the White House to show him the moves of the dance.

The song and accompanying video has won awards around the world and recently became the most watched clip in YouTube history.

Stars and members of the public have also performed their own parodies of the song – most recently by troops in Afghanistan.

Meanwhile, PSY is said to be working on his follow-up single, which is rumoured to be a collaboration with Justin Bieber.
