Some people don’t believe in applying double standards, but their principles are thrown out the window when it comes to artistes. For instance, no one would bat an eye if a male performer strips off on stage during a concert. In fact, fans would go crazy and might even take the opportunity to touch their idol’s body. Unfortunately, half of the time, the same cannot be said for female singers.
With all that being said, singers can always count on their fans for their overwhelming support, especially when they’re in a bind. Taiwanese singer Jolin Tsai (蔡依林) just concluded her “Ugly Beauty World Tour” earlier this week, and fans enjoyed every second of it. Known for her over-the-top stage outfits, the 42-year-old surprised many with one particular outfit that showed off her “nipples”.
During the concert, the singer performed many of her hits, including songs from her 2018 album “Ugly Truth”; and had multiple, extravagant costume changes. The “Medusa” songstress posted multiple series of photos of her concert on her Instagram account, and fans were surprised to see what looked like a bedazzled see-through purple dress that showed off her “naked body”.
“Is anyone looking at my face? Or are you looking at my ‘assets’?” the singer teased the audience during the concert, according to Taiwanese news reports. Upon closer inspection, Jolin’s “naked body” is actually just a visual effect that’s part of the dress’s design. Her management even confirmed this when speaking with local media. It was said that the dress was manufactured abroad, and both Jolin and her team liked the outfit.
While some fans found the stage costume to be inappropriate, most called it sexy, saying that the “Agent J” star looked stunning and even admitted to being fooled by the visual effects of the dress.
In celebration of the last day of the “Ugly Beauty World Tour”, Jolin held a fan-dressing contest where her aficionados dressed up as her in their best replicas of her iconic stage outfits. During the show, one fan in particular, caught Jolin’s attention with a sexy dominatrix costume inspired by her red devil lingerie outfit.
“Did you ride the train like that?” the singer jokingly asked the smiling fan who shared that she was very happy to be able to speak to her idol that night. Jolin even posted a few of her favourite fan outfits in a series on IG stories.
