Abstract: This article discusses the cultural effect of a popular Chinese female artist and singer Sammi Cheng and how her persona and stardom might possibly rock the gender values of various Chinese communities. Despite the fact that she openly denies her feminist identity, under the Chinese context, the notion of gender identities is negotiated around her songs and performativity. Culturally unconventional and provoking, Sammi explicitly represents herself as androgynous in the lyrics of her song 'Non Male Non Female'.
