Jay Chou lashes out at rapper Dog G for insulting song

TAIPEI : Taiwanese superstar Jay Chou has lashed out at rapper Dog G for writing a song about ex-girlfriend Patty Hou's virgin bride status that indirectly insulted him.

The Taiwanese rapper, inspired by media reports that the soon-to-be-married television host Hou is a virgin bride, wrote in his song that Chou "writes about being 'diao' [cool, powerful] in his songs, but is all talk and never used it".

The word 'diao' can also refer to the male genitalia in the Taiwanese dialect.

Chou joked that it was up to the Green Hornet - the singer plays Kato in the upcoming Hollywood film of the same name - and Panda Heroic - a panda themed superhero played by Chou's close friend Devon Song - to uphold justice. So he asked Song, popularly known as Dan Tou, to respond on his behalf.

"If Dog G did not rely on scolding other people, he would be an unknown singer," said Song.

"I originally wanted to write a song to stand up for Chou but he [Chou] told me to spend time with my family over the Lunar New Year period and not waste my time," Song added.

Song also said that he was not happy with the way Dog G insulted his close friend and especially disliked the way the rapper showed no respect towards women. He pointed out that Hou was getting married soon and Dog G should not have brought attention to rumours that could smear her name.

Dog G on the other hand claimed he wrote the song because he found the media's obsession with virginity irksome and wanted to "showcase this serious issue with humour".

Dog G, whose real name is Zeng Guanrong and best known for his current affairs-inspired songs, also said that he "did not think scolding other people would make [him] popular" and welcomed Chou to write a song to admonish him, though he said that he would retaliate.

Athena Chu speaks about the superstar who cheated on her

She had accepted the interview but said she would not speak of her superstar ex-boyfriend, although she had been linked to Stephen Chow.

While she did not name him, she said she broke up with the actor when they went on a work trip and she found him in a hotel room with someone else.

She had popped by his room to say “hi” after work one day and discovered he had locked his door.

“Usually, he doesn’t lock his door and others are welcome to visit,” she said. “As a woman, my first instinct was to touch the bed. Why was it warm? Very warm!

Then of course I went to the toilet, and the toilet door just couldn’t be opened. There was no need to say anything.”

Taiwan’s hottest child star, Xiao Xiao Bin reunites with his mother on Lunar New Year

After shooting to fame from his titular role as the precocious kid of Vanness Wu and Ady An in Autumn's Concerto, Xiao Xiao Bin is now an A-list child star in Taiwan.

As his parents have been divorced for two years, Xiao Xiao Bin missed his mother and started tearing on a programme upon mention of her. To avoid evoking the same emotions from his son, Xiao Xiao Bin’s father, Xiao Bin Bin, does not talk about his ex-wife anymore, although he revealed that “we have always been in contact.”

With his grandmother’s help, Xiao Xiao Bin was finally reunited with his birth mother on the second day of the Lunar New Year.

“My mother has been in contact with her. We will return to Taipei to let the children reunite with their mother,” his father quipped.

Apart from that, on the eve of the Lunar New Year, the trio, together with Xiao Xiao Bin’s brother, Mini Bin, returned to their hometown in Xinzhu to spend the New Year with their grandmother before visiting the zoo.

“Xiao Xiao Bin and Mini Bin loves the giraffes. We have been to the Mucha Zoo in Taipei a few times,” the Xiao Bin Bin explained.

He plans to let Xiao Xiao Bin concentrate on filming an upcoming drama series, P.S. Man before enrolling his son into elementary school next year.

Photo essay: Welcoming the Year of the Tiger

Last Sunday, February 14th was the first day of the Chinese Lunar New Year. It is also the beginning of the Chinese Spring Festival, with celebrations and observations by ethnic Chinese and others around the world, welcoming in the Year of the Tiger. Conservationists are hoping to capitalize on the Year of the Tiger by calling attention to the plight of the endangered big cats. The number of wild tigers is thought to have dropped from 100,000 at the beginning of the 20th century to fewer than 3,000 today. In September, the World Bank and Russia will hold a summit on tiger conservation in Vladivostok, encouraging countries that are host to wild tigers to reach agreements to further protect and expand their habitat.
