Jolin Tsai has lashed out at a Taiwanese magazine for focusing on her cleavage in its news report.
The Taiwanese singer, known for songs such as Magic and Dancing Diva, turned 39 on Sept 15 and celebrated with a four-day birthday bash with family and friends in Pattaya, Thailand.
The headline in Mirror Media focused on her breasts and ran several photos of her to highlight her clothes. It also mentioned how she was sitting and said it could lead to exposure.
In a Facebook post, Tsai asked, “When a series of articles mentions G-cup breasts in the headline, what type of sexuality education is the readers receiving?” She added the hashtag #bodyawareness in her status.
The post received over 2,460 comments at press time, mostly with netizens taking issue with the mag for criticising her body and diverting attention from her birthday party.
Taiwan’s Education Ministry also weighed in by commenting that it needed to revise its sexuality education and increase the curriculum time to more than two hours. The comment received many “Likes” on Facebook.
Tsai’s latest album, Ugly Beauty, won two major awards at the Golden Melody Awards in June, the Chinese equivalent of the Grammys. – The Straits Times/Asia News Network
