The Philosophy of "Tarkan Lee"

By Adelind Osmanlı reporting from Munich, Germany

Turkish papers have begun to print favourable news in the wake of the star's sale successesOn Tarkan's return from the Maldives, Turkish papers have begun to print favourable news, while in the wake of the star's sale successes the critics seemed to have quietened down - for now.

As passengers caused chaos at Istanbul's main airport in the rush to greet and take photographs with Tarkan, a visibly relaxed and happy man greeted the cameras at Atatürk Airport's arrival lounge yesterday afternoon. While answering questions, the star also reportedly acted out some martial arts moves in jest.

Fans in Istanbul and the surrounding provinces are also getting ready to meet with the star this Friday, for a signing day at a D&R store.

Tarkan Following in Lee's Spiritual Footsteps

News channel Haberturk's story and newspaper Takvim's report ran the lead of Tarkan's return using the "Bruce Lee" slant, and also printed that Tarkan was considering fatherhood through way of adoption.

Claiming that his dance moves on his latest music video "Vay Anam Vay" echo his hero Lee's refusal to be part of the system, but to go his own way, in regards to becoming a father the singer said he had considered adoption from time to time.

"There's a lot of children growing up without parents. If we were all to adopt one needy child, there wouldn't be needy children in the world," the singer said.
