William Hung Debuts in Asia

HONG KONG (AP) _ William Hung, who shot to instant fame as a reject on the U.S. talent show ``American Idol,'' has debuted in Asia at a Macau casino.

Accompanied by sexy dancers in red tube tops, the Hong Kong-born singer belted out his most famous hit _ an off-key rendition of Ricky Martin's ``She Bangs'' _ at Kam Pek casino in Macau, local media reported Sunday.

``I don't mind having some people ridicule me,'' Hung was quoted as saying in the South China Morning Post.

Hung, a 21-year-old civil engineering student at the University of California at Berkeley, became famous after he responded to the mockery of ``American Idol'' judges by saying that he had done his best and had no regrets.

He went on to sign a singing contract with Fuse Music Network and Koch Records.

Asked why he thinks he's attractive, Hung told the Apple Daily newspaper: ``I can dance and I'm sincere.''

Hung, who has inspired fan clubs and Web sites that sing his praises, now spends most of his time touring to promote his debut album, ``Inspiration,'' which has sold more than 100,000 copies.
