Pop sensation PSY was honored at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on Friday (26Apr13) for taking over the world with his popular track GANGNAM STYLE.
The South Korean star, real name Park Jae-sang, was handed the Tribeca Disruptive Innovation Award at a New York University prizegiving.
Accepting the honor, the singer said, "Who knew, right? Giving me this award in itself is innovation, I think... I still cannot believe what happened right now."
It was a dream come true for the hitmaker in many ways as he once applied to study at the university.
He explained, "I applied to this school in 1996, but I failed... Finally, I entered this building this morning."
Other recipients of this year's (13) Disruptive Innovation Awards included fashion designer Norma Kamali, music and film entrepreneur Peter Shapiro and choreographer Twyla Tharp.
