It’s one thing to wake up black out drunk and have no memories of what happened the night before. It’s another when what did happen gets plastered all over the news.
Taiwanese rapper Nana Liang (梁云菲) got drunk on a live stream recently and shocked fans when she accidently flashed her breasts on-screen. The video went viral and Nana responded to the incident last Friday (12th November) in a Facebook post.
According to the post, Nana had received a call from a reporter after the news went viral. The reporter had apparently asked after Nana’s wellbeing as she had been very drunk during the live stream. However, the rapper wasn’t too happy with the inquiry. “I was really wondering. Do I want to answer “Good?” or “Very good?”” she wrote. “You people write news about me every day, when have you ever cared whether my mood is okay or not okay?”
Nana then accused the reporter of recording their conversation. The rapper alleged that the reporter was looking for extra information to include in their article. “I have had experience with this kind of situation and I won’t be fooled,” she said. “Sorry, Apple reporter. My indifferent tone and concise reply keeps you from continuing (the story).”
As for the incident itself, Nana saw no harm in it. “But I’m just drunk, what’s wrong (with that)?” she asked. “Did I hurt anyone?” The 30-year-old stated she didn’t remember anything from the live stream. She did note however that she should increase her alcohol tolerance to avoid such incidents from happening again. To those who had circulated the live video, she said she wished them a healthy and safe life. Finally, the artist added it had been Singles Day on 11th November. “Apart from consuming (alcohol), I also won’t forget to (read about) myself,” she quipped.
The news site, Apple Daily, which had approached Nana, reported the artist had told them she was fine and mentioned she didn’t want to discuss the issue further. They had also contacted her old flame, TVB actor King Kong Lee (Lee Hsin Chiao, 李信樵) to ask about the incident. However, he shared his ex-girlfriend’s mentality and politely reminded them that he was no longer responding to things regarding her.
Sometimes, alcohol seems like the only answer to forgetting our problems. Doing so for one night isn’t that big a deal, as long as you don’t continue to run from it. We look forward to seeing Nana get back on her feet and know she won’t let such a tiny incident knock her down.
