Van Ness Wu counts throngs of women across Asia as his fans.

And he has won the heart of Indonesian pop diva Anggun's sister, who is a long-time supporter.

When she learnt that Anggun would be working closely with her idol, she could not contain her excitement.

To make her jealous, Anggun took a selfie with Wu and has plans to record a quick video for "bragging rights".

The Paris-based singing sensation gushed: "He is multi-talented. He shocks us with his hairdo and sometimes wears these funky hats. He's super fashion-forward."

She added: "He is super sweet sometimes. At times, he says yes to an act and we are all like, 'Are you serious?' He has a big heart; sometimes we make fun of him."

Anggun, 40, said the quartet enjoy great chemistry and get along well with each other. She even shares parenting tales and tips with Mel C.

Mel C and Anggun have a daughter each, aged six and seven respectively.

Being in the same boat, they share the struggles and joys of being working mothers.

"Before becoming a mother, I am a woman and I have my career and that is important. But being a mother is the identity I cherish the most. We have to be a superwoman, and sometimes we fail while sometimes we succeed," she said.

Anggun returns to her Parisian studio tomorrow to record her new album.
"It is a French and English album that will be out in October. It was pushed back because of this (Asia's Got Talent) stint," she said.
