Regent Taipei prepares for Jackson visit

Staff writer, with CNA

As Taiwanese fans prepare for pop diva Janet Jackson’s “Up Close and Personal” concert in Taipei on Friday, the hotel she will be staying at said yesterday it was aiming to provide her with the high-class personal services she is used to.

The Regent Taipei said it was preparing its 19.5m2 presidential suite for Jackson to serve as her home away from home. It will be decorated with her favorite white roses, and personalized bathrobes and slippers monogrammed with Jackson’s initials will be provided to make her feel at home.

Her late brother, Michael Jackson, stayed in the same suite he came to Taiwan in 1993 and 1996.

The Regent’s public relations director Beth Tsai (蔡蕙茹) said the hotel had compiled a photo album of Michael Jackson’s two visits to Taipei and had prepared three video games based on the legendary pop star.

The same butler who served Michael will also be on duty to provide 24-hour personal services to Janet Jackson, Tsai said.

“We understand that Janet is on a light food diet, so we will stock Taiwanese fruits, such as wax apples, bananas and guavas,” she said.

The luxury suite has also been a temporary home to Mariah Carey and Michael Jordan.

Janet Jackson will be making her first visit to Taiwan for Friday’s concert. She is scheduled to meet 20 fans after the concert at the Nangang Exhibition Hall.
