30 Aug – Although she was criticised for dating yet another younger man, Taiwanese Elva Hsiao is adamant not to be affected by other people's opinion of her.
As reported on Mingpao, the singer, who sat down for an interview with Liberty Times recently, stated that it is inevitable for a public figure to find themselves becoming the target of public opinion and negative comments, and that she would just face it with a brave face.
However, Elva said that one should always be responsible for one's words and deeds.
"Whether it is me or other artistes, girls, boys, friends, colleagues, or anybody, nobody deserves to be bullied or hurt with such malicious words," she said.
The singer added that she has always wanted to and will use her power and role as a public figure to bring positivity and a voice for other people.
As for her relationship with 24-year-old Justin Wong, Elva said that she decided to make it public as she feels that she needed to be honest with everyone.
"He has been with me all the time. I need to have the courage to speak up and admit that we are in a relationship," she said.
