Reports say Samantha Fox to perform in the north


EIGHTIES pop icon Samantha Fox is scheduled to go to the north hoping to “tear down the embargo” according to Turkish Cypriot daily Kibris.

Fox, who was famous for posing topless in the Sun newspaper at the age of 16, is hoping to sing at a concert during the celebrations for Ramadan at the Malpas Hotel in Ayios Epiktitos.

It is not the first time a prominent artist has planned a concert in the north though and Fox should be prepared to face the fury of Greek Cypriots who managed to get Jennifer Lopez to cancel a scheduled concert there in 2010.

“Jennifer Lopez would never knowingly support any state, country, institution or regime that was associated with any form of human rights abuse,” the statement said. Julio Iglesias claimed to have also been ‘duped’ into performing in the north before pulling out on the grounds that the territory was “illegal”, according to a statement at the time.

Fox signed her first record deal at the age of 15 but followed a route into modelling, propelling her into the public eye in the early eighties. She gave up modelling at the age of 20 to concentrate on her music career and released her first single in 1986 named ‘Touch Me’. It reached number 3 in the UK charts. She has currently sold over 30 million records worldwide.
