If you weren’t sure, Mr. Armstrong made it very clear on Instagram when he compared the pop star to a sexually transmitted infection that doesn’t go away permanently.

Armstrong  posted a picture of Psy on his Instagram account, captioning it: ”This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway”

This, of course comes a few weeks after the release of Psy’s latest YouTube video “Gentleman”, which set records for the number of views in a 24 hour period.

However, for Psy, the Armstrong  jab was water off a ducks back, in fact the pop star thanked the punk star.

In an interview with Fuse, Psy said, “What is herpes? Is it like a disease?” Psy asked, before being supplied with the grisly details. “I kind of like it, it’s cool. I should say something to him. He’s saying I’m like herpes, [I] keep coming back … I think it’s really cool, and I appreciate that. Thank you.”
