Will Psy be Time's 2012 Person Of The Year?

I was told Psy has overtaken Justin Bieber in having the most views on YouTube. Looks like this South Korean rapper who created a phenomenon with his Gangnam Style is set to add more feathers to his cap in the entertainment industry.

It has been reported that Psy has been shortlisted for Time magazine's 2012 Person of the Year. Others in the list include Jay-Z (Beyonce's husband) and Russian punk rockers Pussy Riot.

More from The Star/Daily Chilli:

Editors unveiled a list of 38 contenders for the honour and Fifty Shades of Grey author EL James, Olympic gymnast Gabby Douglas and comedians Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart have all made the cut.

Also nominated are US President Barack Obama and his former White House rival, Republican Mitt Romney, as well as dissident Chinese artist/activist Ai Weiwei and Pakistani teenager Malala Yousafzai, who was shot by Taliban extremists who disagreed with her equal rights beliefs.

The winner will be chosen by Time editors and revealed on 14 December (12). The Protester was named last year's (11) Person of the Year following the widespread reach of the Occupy Wall Street campaign against big business.
