29 Dec – Hong Kong singer GEM Tang recently clarified that she was clueless of the fact that her delayed arrival at the Metro Radio Music Hits Awards and its post-party has caused inconvenience to the production crew as well as other artistes.
According to Sina News, due to the absence of other popular stars, Joey Yung and Eason Chan, the Metro Radio Music Hits Awards prolonged the ceremony until midnight to await GEM's arrival from her performance in Macau so that she could personally receive her four awards - resulting in the show ending at 12.30 am instead of the original schedule.
The organisers also delayed the post-party and waited for GEM to take photos and give out Christmas cookies to her fans. Members of the media had to wait nearly an hour for the singer before the celebration began.
When asked about the delay, GEM apologised and said, "I accepted the Macau show much earlier, but I tried my best to rush back to Hong Kong. I arrived before the ceremony ended."
"I am so sorry for having made everybody wait. I didn't know they prolonged the event for me," she added.
As to her four awards, GEM admitted that she was surprised, as she did not release any new song in 2014.
"I don't know how to make it up to everyone. But I made 260 cookies. I hope everyone will like it," she said.
