Jolin Tsai Apologizes for Refusing to Sing with Fans

Taiwan pop queen Jolin Tsai recently apologized through her agent for refusing to sing with fans in a TV show organised by China's Central Television Station, CCTV.

During the recording of the show on April 30, Jolin Tsai was supposed to sing three songs, including "Today You Will Marry Me", which she had performed with Taiwan singer David Tao at the 2007 CCTV Spring Festival Gala.

Jolin Tsai was asked by the director to sing with a fan picked from the audience, but she refused to do so, saying it was not written in her contract.

Enraged by her attitude, Director Sun Bin launched a fierce quarrel with the assistant of the star. The recording was stalled for several minutes.

Finally, the star agreed to sing with three "fans": one from the audience, the other two being staff working for her company.

It is reported that Jolin Tsai was the only one who hadn't shown up during a previous rehearsal of the show, to which big stars Aaron Kwok, Emil Chau and Jasmine Leung were also invited.

A representative of Jolin's company, Electrical and Music Industries (EMI), said the incident was caused by a misunderstanding between the two sides.
