Ah Boys To Men star Tosh Zhang's divisive local hip-hop music video Lingo Lingo may have made headlines in the past week.

But its laughable Singlish lyrics, fleet of supercars and private jet were not the only "stars" in the clip that raised eyebrows.

Meet local freelance actress-model Melody Low, who plays the female lead clad in bodycon dresses, showing off her eye-popping cleavage.

The 22-year-old, who has over 55,000 followers on her Instagram account, appeared in local rapper Shigga Shay's ShiGGa Morning music video back in March.

In it, she parades in a skimpy white tank top and red bra, both barely covering her ample 32D bosom.

Her assets may have caught the eye of many netizens and landed her cameos, but Low laments that they have also given her unwanted attention.

In an interview with The New Paper last Friday, she said in a mix of Mandarin and English: "I upload sexy pictures of myself on my Instagram account and sometimes, I have secondary school kids posting lewd comments.

"I feel a bit offended, but I just delete them. There is no point in replying.

"Some people feel that I deserve to receive these comments because I post those pictures.

"But I feel that as long as I have a hot bod and I take care of my body, it's okay to upload them when I still look good."

She said that many people have spread rumours that she has gone under the knife for breast enhancement, but she insisted they are real.

"I don't understand why some people would spread such rumours, especially when they are not my boyfriend or my husband, and they are not the ones touching them."

Low agreed that there are advantages to being well-endowed.

"For some online videos, I am required to wear bikinis, and I look nicer in them. It's not so empty in the chest area."

Low is comfortable with her sexy image being played up, but does not want to be stereotyped.

She said: "I don't want people to look at me and think only of 'sexy bikini babe'."

At 1.6m tall and weighing 47kg, Low works out twice a week and controls her diet to keep in shape.

If there is anything that she hates or regrets, it would be her tattoos.

Low, who was from Blangah Rise Primary School, stopped school at 12 because she was not interested in studying.

She mixed with the wrong crowd and got two tattoos before she turned 16.

She said: "I was rejected for a few modelling jobs because of my big tattoo of a Barbie doll face on my back.

"It's very painful to laser off the tattoo, more painful than getting the tattoo itself."

The only child started working at the tender age of 12 to support herself and her single mother, who is in her 50s, and has been unemployed since then. Her parents are divorced.

"My mum told me if I didn't want to study, I have to work to earn money.

"So I helped out at my godmother's shop in Bugis Village selling clothes," said Low, who started modelling at 15.
