Dateline: SINGAPORE A former Taiwanese politician, who gained notoriety after a video of her having sex with her married lover was made public, received permission Monday to make her concert debut here, her promoter said. Chu Mei-fong, who has become a sensation in ethnic Chinese enclaves worldwide, plans to arrive in Singapore Wednesday for nine concerts later this week that will feature song and dance routines, her local concert promoter Power Jackson told The Associated Press.
Singapore has been buzzing with interest about the 36-year-old former Taipei city councilwoman since secret tapes of her affair were published by Scoop, a Taiwanese tabloid magazine, in December. Singapore papers have been running stories about Chu on a daily basis.
Jackson said Chu agreed to do the charity concerts in January and has an excellent singing voice even though she has never performed in public. Chu lost her seat in Taiwan's legislature in December before her affair with Tseng Chung-ming, a ,businessman, was revealed.
Singapore police granted the entertainment license Monday under the conditions that Chu's sex scandal will not be discussed during the show and that 21 guards protect the former politician during her performances.
Last month officials in neighboring Malaysia refused to grant Chu permission to hold a similar concert on moral grounds.
Jackson said that Chu will dance and sing popular Taiwanese pop songs and one English song. He said possibilities include the Titanic theme song 'My Heart Will Go On,' 'I Don't Want to Talk About It' by Rod Stewart and Mariah Carey's 'Without You'.
