Gloria Tang sings her way to the tune of RM300mil

HONG KONG singer Gloria Tang has raked in a staggering HK$500mil (RM300mil) in performance fees ever since she embarked on her I AM GLORIA World Tour that began at the end of last year.

Popularly known by her stage name G.E.M, China Press reported that the 32-year-old had been slated to perform 49 shows in most provinces and cities in China, with the tour expected to end in August.

The daily reported that Tang also made history by becoming the first Asian female singer to hold five consecutive concerts at Shanghai Stadium.

A whopping 400,000 tickets were sold out within three seconds after they went on sale, with the stadium able to accommodate 80,000 spectators.

The achievement further solidified her position as one of the top-selling female singers in terms of ticket sales.

She took to Chinese social networking platform Weibo to express her joy, thanking everyone for the feat.

Tang rose to fame at the age of 22 when she first took part in I Am A Singer, a Chinese singing competition show broadcast on Hunan Television.

> Sin Chew Daily reported that Hong Kong actor Joe Ma Tak-chung, 55, looked dashing in a white suit while appearing at a medical event in Hong Kong.

In his interview with the media, Ma said he was suffering from fatty liver disease six years ago, but managed to recover after taking up a vegetarian diet.

“I pay great attention to my body. I changed to a vegetarian diet. I have never smoked or drank, and I lost weight very quickly,” he said.

Asked if his health improved after he became a vegetarian, Ma said: “It’s much better. Everything is very good.”
