Psy was booed off the stage in Italy during a soccer match on Sunday (May 26).According to an article in Allkpop, he had performed for the 2013 Coppa Italia Final between A.S. Roma and Lazio at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome.He was invited to perform "Gangnam Style", but when he started to perform, the entire audience started to boo, and when he was done he was met with a chorus of boos instead of the usual cheers.In an interview afterwards, he said, "Italy is famous for being a passionate country. I understand yesterday's response. I know what it means. Similar things happen in Korea when two teams go against each other."Not only did the audience boo him, they sang their own cheer song for their team, throwing off the entire performance.Psy said he himself understood that the fans wanted to see the match itself since it was a final, not a performance by a Korean artist who seemed to have no relation to the match.
