Psy is making headlines again, and not for his dance moves.

The South Korean rapper, 35, opens up about a drinking problem in The Sunday Times. For him, apparently boozing around the clock is no problem.

Korean vodka is his "best friend" and "vice partner," he tells the British newspaper, adding that he'll guzzle "whisky, vodka, tequila, whatever."

Psy says, "If I'm happy, I'm drinking, if I'm sad, I'm drinking. If it's raining, I'm drinking, if it's sunny, I'm drinking. If it's hot, I'm drinking, if it's cold, I'm drinking."

And when does he take a break from liquor?

"When I'm hungover."

Psy also told The Sunday Times that early in his career record company executives urged him to alter his appearance with plastic surgery.

"I got famous with this kind of body!" he says. "Most celebrities are skinnier than me or taller than me and have smaller faces than me or bigger eyes than me."

Psy's YouTube channel, which exploded with 2012's Gangnam Style, recently reached 3 billion views. A toast?
