The Other Bingbing At Cannes

Li Bingbing
(李冰冰) has adopted a new trick to win media attention on the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival.

Dressed in a quasi-see-through black gown, Bingbing flashed a cute expression by winking her eyes and slightly sticking out her tongue.

You can see she tried very hard to hold that expression still for as long as possible.

Charming! But isn’t it kinda too cute in that formal sexy dress?

In3: Beijing’s Hip Hop Pioneers

If you thought 90s-era AZN pride hit “Got Rice Bitch” or MC Jin’s “Y’all Gonna Learn Chinese” were the end-all be-all of Chinese hip hop, it’s time to update your playlist. While hip-hop remains largely off the mainstream radar, the scene has been growing since the early 00′s when foreign imports like the Eminem movie “8 Mile” popularized the notion of freestyling. The first Iron Mic competition, the country’s biggest annual rap battle, began in 2001, bringing the artistry of Chinese hip-hop to a new level.

Among the leaders of China’s burgeoning underground hip hop scene is 阴三儿 (Yīnsānr), otherwise known as In3. After starting up in 2006, the Beijing trio quickly made a name for themselves with hilarious, vulgar lyrics packed with Beijing slang, and centered on everyday life in China.

They also broke new ground stylistically—in contrast to many of their peers, who modeled their songs after American-style hip-hop, In3 pioneered a new style based on traditional Beijing shuochang (说唱), a form of traditional Chinese storytelling or “story singing.” Check out their 2008 self-release, “Unknown Artist” (《未知艺术家》) or listen to their tracks on their Douban page.
