Jolin Tsai wants to be Lady Gaga and denies breaking into Japan

Jolin Tsai’s birthday wish is to be Taiwan’s Lady Gaga! Jolin, who always seeks perfection, aiming to constantly make new breakthroughs in music and dancing says that her idol burden prevents her from making bold attempts. She revealed that she admires that Western artists can display their inner self: “Watching Lady Gaga’s MV, what she does is also what I really want to do, but her personality is very different from mine. If I am more brave, and don’t care about how others criticize me, then I can be like her!”

The strong queen, only admits defeat when it comes to love. Jolin revealed: “As soon as I meet love, I’m finished, infront of my other half, I am not strong at all, I’m that kind of person who.. fakes pity, of course sometimes I do think that I am quite pitiful la, haha!” Jolin is about to welcome her 3-month holiday, and she has decided to leave more room for herself; she said laughing: “Give myself a break, enjoy life, that way I may still be able to be an idol when I’m 60.”

Last year, Jolin joined Warner Music, and hoped to break into the international market. According to Chinese media reports, Jolin’s ‘Butterfly’s album sales are extremely impressive, and that she hopes to break into Japan. They also reported that she would be secretly going to Japan in December to promote, and even sing a duet ‘Brilliant’ with Kobukuro, and also film the MV. However, Taiwan’s Warner Music denied this rumour, and Jolin’s manager revealed: “Currently we haven’t heard this plan yet, but we’re letting Jolin go on holiday till the end of the year, she won’t even be accepting any New Year Eve’s performances.”


Lady Gaga?!?!  I don't think so, Jolin... i don't think so!

Interview with Top Combine

I love this interview. Top Combine is the only boyband I can think of whose self-composed song made them famous (Cotton Candy was EVERYWHERE in China) so Ma Xueyang downplaying it was nice and Liu Zhoucheng's non-PC answer to "Would you choose looks or ability?" was refreshing.

Mods can we get a Top Combine tag? There will definitely be more news when they come back with an album this fall.

“Top Combine” Portrait from "Mr.Charming" magazine

For many years, all idol boy bands came from South Korea or Taiwan, up until last year, when Top Combine, A-ONE, and other such groups debuted closely together, filling the vacuum. Relying on Hunan TV’s strong platform, where every member gathered strong popularity over time, Top Combine quickly became mainland China’s standout idol group, and member Ma Xueyang’s composition, “Cotton Candy”, rocketed them to a forefront position in mainland China. As Tianyu’s expensive idol group creation, their fashionable, youthful appearance shocked everyone.

Gary Cao & his father pursued same girl when he was 18

After the media revealed his hidden marriage and kids, Andy Lau had to endure immense pressure. Gary Cao says he understands, and although he hasn’t phoned to consolidate, but he fully supports Andy. After beginning a relationship with his present wife, he realized that his wife previously was his fan and even asked for a photo together. Gay said: “Who said singers can’t date their fans? I even married my fan.”

Yesterday night, Gary held a private concert at the Lutheran Eslite. He even moved the sofas and baby crib from his house to hold a very warm gathering with hundreds of fans. During rehearsals, he sung ‘Any Empty Wine Bottles For Sale?” and he reminisced to when he was little, and watched the movie ‘Papa Can You Hear Me Sing?” with his mum, and his mother’s hurt and crying face even made him shed tears. Talking about his relationship with his father, Gary revealed that when he was 18, he and his father went after the same girl. The girl was 10 years older than him, and she thought it was too ludicrous so she rejected him.

Gary’s fans urged him to have another child, but he dismissed this idea, saying: “Recently, my work schedule is very full, I don’t want to have no time to spend with my children, best to follow Richie Ren’s example, and stick many photos of myself on the wall in my kids’ room, so they can see me all the time.”
