Vanness Wu gets closer to fans in Singapore with new MTV show

SINGAPORE: Taiwan singer Vanness Wu, who recently released his new album "C'est La 'V'", will be heading to Singapore on Wednesday, to record the first episode of music channel MTV's locally-produced live performance series "MTV Sessions", at Resorts World Sentosa.

Wu expressed that the recording session for the show, which will premiere over MTV South East Asia on January 1, will be the perfect opportunity for him to meet his fans and said he looked forward to sharing his new material with them.

"It's more of an intimate setting; it's more where the artiste and the audience can get closer.

"We'll be bringing down the whole smoke and mirrors, glitz and glamour of the huge stage, and get it to be more of a coffee house type of feeling," said Wu, who will also be answering questions from his fans during the recording.

"I actually always wanted to do something like this and I feel right now, with my new album which I just released, it is perfect timing for the audience to be able to hear something in a much more relaxed state."

Although he loved interacting with his fans, Wu revealed that overzealous fans sometimes make him very uncomfortable.

"They get overly excited and become a bit more brazen.

"One that really sticks to my mind was probably when I was in Las Vegas. A fan asked for a handshake. I shook her hand and as I was shaking her hand, her grip became quite strong and ended up pulling me towards her," recounted Wu with a laugh.

"She tried to kiss me! And when I moved my face away she landed her lips right on my neck. I was like what the … !"

A very busy man

Wu has been especially busy these days – the 33-year-old star had only recently concluded a concert in Japan which attracted fans from across Asia, and is currently busy promoting his new album, jewellery line 3V07 as well as his upcoming film "Road Less Travelled", which will premier on December 22.

He said that "Road Less Travelled", which stars himself as well as his friends Jimmy Hung, Eric Tu, Dean Fujioka and Chris Lung, is a project especially close to his heart.

"'Road Less Travelled' is about a rock band. Five guys who come together and experience the highs and lows in the entertainment industry," said Wu, explaining that the film's storyline contained many elements based on the actors' own experiences.

"It's quite close to the truth about their actual lives."

Wu is certain to get busier in the run up to the premiere of "Road Less Travelled", but for now, he is just happy to visit Singapore again.

"I love Singapore. I think Singapore is an awesome place.

"I mean the weather is really relaxed, chill. I love the fact that is it summer all year long, the food's great," said Wu, adding that he tries to visit the city state when he has the time.
