25 Nov – Taiwanese heartthrob, Vanness Wu who is currently in Singapore to perform songs off his latest album, "C'est La V", in filming the debut episode of MTV Sessions, talked to us in an exclusive interview where he revealed about his choice of abstinence through Christianity, among other details about himself.
Vanness who is widely known as a devoted Christian, said that he strongly believes in abstinence before marriage, when asked on his unusual choice on the matter.
"I see virginity as something worth holding on too, as a measure of self-worth, seeing as it is so easily taken among today's generation," said Vanness.
He added, "Especially in these times, it is so easy to just walk in a club, drink alcohol and find somebody. I want something of value to give to my special someone."
Vanness is reportedly dating the daughter of a rich Singaporean, Arissa, but has yet to confirm the relationship in the media, and still refuses to comment on his love life when asked.
However on his album, "C'est La V", the 33-year-old Vanness said that the despite only taking a year to make, it felt more like ten. But that didn't stop him from being glad with the response it had garnered so far.
"The album is a reflection of how long I've been an entertainer, and it took that long for me to fully understand myself, my direction in life, how to give and take in becoming who I am now. This album is me."
During the conception of his album, Vanness collaborated with Ryan Tedder and Bruno Mars, although he had never met the former. However, he is eager to collaborate with artistes such as Lady Gaga, Rihanna and U2, in the future.
For now, Vanness is just eager to meet his fans and family in Singapore.
Some of Vanness' upcoming projects are television dramas in Taiwan, as well as an exclusive accessory line called 3V07, a reversal of the word LOVE.
Fans who wish to catch the first live recording of "MTV Sessions" happening this 14 December, can do so as passes will be made up for grabs soon by MTV.
