Today Show: Psy Performs Gangnam Style and Gentleman
Performing his hits “Gangnam Style” and “Gentleman,” Psy brought all the energy to his live performances that he brings to his music videos that have more hits than most countries have citizens. Psy’s catchphrase “dress classy and dance cheesy,” was in full effect here. His clean-as-a-baby’s-bottom black and white sport jacket flowed around his body as he performed “Gangnam Style” and “Gentleman” strutting and jerking across the stage in the strange dance style we have come to expect from the pop sensation.
Psy has quite a way of getting the crowd involved. Dancing that everyone will regret seeing on national TV a year from now, chanting to the lyrics, and plenty of clapping and jumping took place. Surprisingly, no one in the crowd was hurt while trying to perform the kick move from “Gangam Style.” Since “Gentleman” is too new for anyone to know the dance to it yet, there was more random gyrating than actual dancing done by the crowd during this song.
All in all, if you’ve imagined what a live performance from Psy would be based off the energy he brings in his music videos, you just about got it right.
Today Show: Kentucky Derby Hat Review
When I hear “Kentucky Derby,” I think of horses running around in a circle and some poor sap losing a lot of money. When cultured people hear those words, however, they think of hats.
Christine Moore, owner of Christine A. Moore Millinery, makes some of the best Kentucky Derby hats you are going to see at the races, and she showed us some of them today from the Churchill Downs in Kentucky.
First up was the “Elizabeth Hat,” a yellow, feathery bloom of colors on a headband that you can throw on and go. Next up was “Clara,” which showed us all how lace can still be seen as trendy–if it’s on a hat. Another hat on display was “The Jennifer” in black and white. Finally, a large, architectural hat that was not named showed off just how large and complex these hats could get.
