Stef, make an effort, okay?

Stef, make an effort, okay?

She dazzles fans worldwide with her over-the-top costumes and powerful vocals.

And local songstress Stefanie Sun was in the spotlight again last week, but for a less glam reason.

The 36-year-old mother-of-one was snapped queuing at a local fast food restaurant recently, dressed sloppily in a T-shirt, shorts and slippers, with unkempt hair and a pair of black-rimmed spectacles perched on her nose.

The unflattering shot made its rounds online, prompting many to label Sun "the heartland aunty".

Sun's reaction? A light-hearted response on her personal Twitter feed.

The singer uploaded an edited version of the same photo last Thursday, with a crown drawn over her head and the words, "So Beautiful OK", splashed across the picture.

Yes, it is cool that our very own home-grown talent has a sense of humour and is able to make light of the situation.

But Sun, really?

Showing up in THAT outfit in public when you are Asia's Mandopop Queen?

Thankfully, Singapore does not have paparazzi trawling the streets, on the prowl for its next celebrity page-one-worthy tabloid snap.


As a (very) known public figure, Sun has an obligation to put some effort into how she looks in public.
