Hong Kong pop star G.E.M. performed at the Venetian in Las Vegas on Saturday night. According to Apple Daily, concertgoers report that G.E.M. was heckled by audience members for speaking mostly in Mandarin throughout the show. "You are a Hongkonger!" they reportedly shouted. Some attendees also claimed that she was singing off-key.

 

On Sunday G.E.M. posted a message on her Facebook page saying she’ll “never give up” no matter how difficult the road ahead becomes. The Shanghai-born Hong Kong singer, currently on her second world tour, has been very popular since her 2008 debut EP.

Why does it even matter? She's an entertainer and has talent to show. More than a lot of the famour 'singers' out there

does it really matter what language she used to speak? It is her choice of freedom.

i'm not sure why people make it such a big deal ... it's just a language. maybe GEM is trying to promote herself in a different route... i mean, she is born in shanghai ... she is a great singer, i dont see why she should be penalized for speaking mandarin.

she and her manager really should sit down and think about what has happened. She is young and fearless cause she is famous but that's not going to last forever. She is not the ONLY singer that sings well. Personally I don't listen to her songs, no particular reason just don't find her songs attractive anyways.

At least she can speak Mandarin ( and who knows maybe even Cantonese ). I can't and i can't even sing off key. so G.E.M. can do more then me and she looks cuter so i won't say anything bad about her

at a las vegas- one would assume that you would speak english to the crowd- but if the crowd is mostly cantonese- then she should have done her research and also speak her mother tongue rather than show off
