Korean rapper Psy has gone from being unknown in the wider world to being one of the biggest pop stars in history.
"Gangnam Style" became a sensation after the unusual 'horsey-dance' inspired thousands of remixes and parodies, and on Monday he entered the top 10 YouTube videos ever with over 400 million views.

Other artists currently beating him to the top spot at Lady Gaga, LMFAO, Eminem, Jennifer Lopez and Justin Bieber.
