SINGAPORE - He is a superstar who sings about love.
Yet, in an interview with the local media on Sunday, top Taiwanese pop idol Show Luo declared: "I don't need love."
The 34-year-old, who was in town to promote his latest album Lion Roar, said: "I do not like to be tied down. I enjoy my freedom and I want to be able to have time for myself when I take a break from work.
"I am not done playing, so I don't want to have the burden of a girlfriend at the moment."
Luo described his year as a busy one. He went home fewer than 20 times in 2013.
He also said that his car "went dead because I didn't even have time to drive it".
"My utility fees were also very low since I wasn't home most of the time."
Luo, who has always said that he is single, had been linked with several female artists this year, including Taiwanese model-actress Tia Li, 28, and Taiwanese host Linda Jian, 30.
He was reportedly spotted visiting Li on set in Shanghai while she was filming in October.
A month earlier, Luo was photographed celebrating Jian's birthday with her in a private room.
