Want to see Taiwanese Mando-pop star kiss another girl in her new music video for the song, “We are all different, Yet the Same?”
Not in Singapore, it seems.
Jolin Tsai’s song and music video have been banned in Singapore.
According to Taiwanese media, the Media Development Authority (MDA) has warned television and radio stations in Singapore not to air the song, or face the consequences. MDA took issue with the lyrics that encourage the pursuit of equal rights or marriage for the LGBTI community.
Last year, a similarly themed A*Mei song, “Rainbow”, was banned because of the song was a tribute to gay couples and previous performances of the song had shown lesbian and gay couples kissing in public at her concerts.
Jolin Tsai’s management says that the singer is disappointed with the ban, but respects the differences in opinion.
