South Korean rapper Psy says President Barack Obama has been forced to stop doing his famous 'Gangnam Style' dance after embarrassing his family.

The President has made no secret he is a fan of the rapper's infectious dance track, even inviting him to perform at a special Christmas concert in Washington earlier this month.

But it seems Obama may have taken his liking to the track a little too far, apparently telling Psy that his wife Michelle and daughters Maliah and Sasha cringed at the POTUS doing the horse-like dance.

"He told me he's good at 'Gangnam Style' but that the ladies at his house are embarrassed when he's dancing so he's not doing it," Psy told The Hollywood Reporter.

Psy' invite by Obama to perform at the annual Children's National Medical Centre benefit concert on December 9 was met with controversy after a song Psy had recorded in 2002 threatening to kill Americans had surfaced.

Lyrics to the controversial song include: "Kill those Yankees who have been torturing Iraqi captives/Kill those Yankees who ordered them to torture/Kill their daughters, mothers, daughters-in-law, and fathers/Kill them slowly and painfully."

Psy later issued a full apology after the song surfaced, saying he was "deeply emotional" in light of the war in Iraq.

"The song in question - from eight years ago - was part of a deeply emotional reaction to the war in Iraq and the killing of two innocent Korean civilians that was part of the overall anti-war sentiment shared by others around the world at that time," Psy said in a statement.
