PSY Receives 2012 AMA New Media Honoree Award, Joins Past Winners Including DeStorm

Regardless of what people say, “Gangnam Style” has not gotten old yet and it actually seems to just keep going up. PSY, who recently dethroned J-Lo and became YouTube’s second most-watched video of all time, received the New Media Honoree award at the American Music Awards this past Sunday.

Our friend DeStorm Power was last year’s winner, and this is what he had to say to NMR about PSY’s win:

“If anyone deserved this award it’s PSY. Not only is he an amazing performer, but he set the bar yet again in digital media. Even has my eyebrow up for a collab.”

Apart from DeStorm, PSY will now join Christina Grimmie and Karmin in the line of recipients of the award. With his hit viral video currently boasting well over 700 million views, there’s no question that deserves the honor.
