Jolin Tsai to Show Luo: “Find yourself a girlfriend!”

9 Jan


Show Luo held a series of four concerts at Taipei Arena starting from 4 January 2013. On his second show, Show invited pop diva Elva Hsiao as a guest performer and hyped up the concert with their fiery dance. For the last two shows, he invited Jolin Tsai and Pauline Lan as his guest performers.

At his afternoon show yesterday, Taiwanese host-singer Pauline Lan made a guest appearance at the concert. Dressed in a revealing vest which showed her glittering bra, Pauline flaunted her awesome figure during her performance. The 47-year-old even jokingly said, “I am worried that the fans will mistake me for Rainie Yang!”

For his finale show in the evening, Show wowed the audiences by inviting pop princess Jolin to end the spectacular show. Jolin made a grand entrance on stage by singing Show’s hit track Jin Wu Men and imitated his dancing steps. Show refused to lose out to her and danced her recent track The Great Artist .

Dressed in a sexily revealing blouse and tight shorts, Show went over and requested a kiss from Jolin. The embarrassing Jolin immediately used her hands to block Show from invading towards her.

“Where are you hiding? Give me some face,” exclaimed Show.

Jolin rebuked Show and said, “Find yourself a girlfriend, please!”

Show replied, “How about yourself?”

Show Luo on kissing his mother: “Those who called me incestuous do not know what love is”

Show Luo on kissing his mum: “Those who called me incestuous do not know what love is”

Show Luo staged four concerts at Taipei Arena in three consecutive days from 4-6 January 2013. The series of concerts have drained him physically and mentally as he had to challenge difficult dance steps, performing dangerous stunts such as singing on a flying wheel. As a result, Show’s mother was terribly worried and had to even seek medication to stabilise her blood pressure.

At the post-concert celebration, Show said, “What I want to do now is to say sorry to my mother”. Show subsequently demonstrated his love for his mother by kissing her on her lips.

Earlier, the pop singer had been criticised as being incestuous for kissing his mother on her lips. Unfazed by the harsh criticisms, Show said, “Those who called me incestuous Show do not know what love is!”

He added, “I only have one mother. If I do not love her, who else will?”

The spectacular performance of the concert was his flying stunt around the theatre hall. Netizens even circulated his “flying man” picture and called it “the condor photo”. Show laughed and said, “It is really very big! My mum gave birth to it!”

During his flying man performance, his singing was off key. “I thought that it should be okay since it was only only for 4 shows. I felt very remorse about it. It is really very tough being a dancing singer”.

For his concert, Show has shed a lot of weight and his chin has even turned sharper. However, he only has one day of rest as he still has to shoot three commercials.

Cyndi Wang moved by Yuan Hao: “I will protect you”

9 Jan

Since declaring their reconciliation, Yao Yuan Hao and Cyndi Wang has been heavily slammed by the public. Although Cyndi had earlier indicated that she was not the cause of Yuan Hao and Sonia Sui’s breakup, many still regard her as the third party in the ex-couple’s 8-year relationship.

Cyndi revealed that what prompted her to patch things back with Yuan Hao was his caring gesture towards her during the time when she was sick in November last year. “I was sick for a very long time. He asked his friends to send me chicken soup everyday. I have never been cared this way before. Any girl will be touched,” said Cyndi.

Subsequently, Cyndi met Yuan Hao at a friend’s gathering and that changed her mind about giving up the romance. “He said he will protect me and my heart softened. Everything that I told myself all collapsed!”


Facing the public accusations of coming between Yuan Hao and Sonia, Cyndi said that she was still traumatised by the word “third party”. “Any girl will have felt something for that two words. He (Yuan Hao) will tell everyone that I am wronged. The whole matter is not like that”.

Cyndi added, “I will bear all consequences, be it good or bad”.

Sonia remains missing

Sonia reportedly was heartbroken when she heard of the reconciliation between her ex-boyfriend and Cyndi. Sonia has been uncontactable for days since returning to Taiwan after her movie promotion Fierce Wife in Chengdu. Her family also refused to divulge the actress’ whereabouts.

Asked if Sonia was back home, her sister replied vaguely, “We do not know. We did not see the newspapers and were not sure what happened”.

On the other hand, Sonia’s manager replied on her behalf, “Everything is hurting for her. We hope that it ends here. Please do not force Sonia anymore”.
