Also, my love for my girlfriend never changed in the past 3 years, and we have trust in each other. We argued once over something small, and during that time, I wanted to see her more and I realized how precious she was. I thought she was fate, and I decided because I thought we’d be happy from now on as well.

Psy doesn’t make the ‘Time 100′ cut

Posted: 19 Apr 2013 04:12 AM PDT

Singer Psy did not make the final cut for Time Magazine‘s ‘100 Most Influential People in the World‘ 2013 edition.

Time Magazine released their picks on April 18th, but Psy’s name was not listed in their final 100. The magazine recently had a poll on their website asking visitors to choose who they thought were the most influential people of 2013 after which the editors chose the final list under their own criteria. Psy did well in terms of online votes, placing 7th out of the 151 candidates with 28,448 fan votes to vouch for him.

The ‘Time 100′ is divided into the categories: ‘Leaders’, ‘Heroes’, ‘Artists’, and ‘Thinkers’, listing the most influential people around the world for those categories. The online vote has no effect on the final list.

What do you all think? Psy did have the most watched YouTube video last year, and “Gangnam Style” was a huge hit. Was he robbed or did the editors get it right?
