Britney Spears learned the Gangnam Style straight from the source, thanks to Ellen DeGeneres. While making an appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show", the "The X Factor (US)" judge was surprised with the arrival of YouTube sensation Psy on the studio.
Psy, a Korean singer, made the dance move popular universally with 144 million hits on YouTube to date. Britney was tweeting about it last month, writing "I am LOVING this video - so fun! Thinking that I should possibly learn the choreography. Anybody wanna teach me?! Haha"
She got her wish on the "Ellen" episode airing Tuesday, telling Psy "Show me!". When Ellen told Britney to remove her high-heeled shoes, Psy told her to keep them on because his "sense of the dance is to dress classy and dance cheesy." Psy revealed the trick, asking the women to imagine themselves riding an invisible horse. Both Ellen and Britney nailed the dance.
Psy is signed to Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun's label Schoolboy Records.
