Lee Hom slammed for flaunting 'made in Japan' camera



With tensions rising between the Japanese and Chinese over the rife of the "Diaoyu islands", a recent microblog post by Lee Hom has come under fire by Chinese netizens.

The singer recently uploaded photo of his newly-received made in Japan camera, and wrote: "The new model has arrived. I can improve on my photography skills now!"

Lee Hom's post garnered immediate flake from Chinese netizens. They wrote in reply: "You've gone beyond the boundaries, no excuses even if you're a superstar!" and said the singer-actor "deserves a scolding".

In support of Lee Hom, his fans stood up and claimed that the post made was in no way related to the government's row over Diaoyu islands.

Both sides hold varied views and Lee Hom's microblog post has since chalked up more than 20,000 comments.
In response to this misunderstanding, Lee Hom's company stated that they are cannot answer any questions on his behalf as they are unable to contact him.

Other artistes who have come under fire for visiting Japan or using made in Japan products include Tony Leung, Wu Chun and Vivian Hsu.

Jay Chou tells paparazzo: I will get married when you die



Taiwan superstar Jay Chou got nasty with the paparazzi that hounded him on Friday night, as he left a Taiwan cinema with his mother and rumoured girlfriend, model Hannah Quinlivan, reported Taiwan media.

When one paparazzo questioned him over when he and Quinlivan will be handing out wedding invitations, Chou became upset and told him that he would do so "when you (the paparazzo) die".

The notoriously anti-paparazzi star conceded that his behavior on Friday was a little rash, but remained largely unapologetic about his actions, when he met the media after a promotional event on Sunday.

"It was already quite good that I didn't hit him," said Chou, before explaining that the paparazzi had asked him some highly offensive questions that night.

He added that he hoped "Taiwan will become a quiet place" and said "a lot of artistes would like it if there are no paparazzi in Taiwan".

Chou also took the opportunity to clarify that he did not propose to Quinlivan during their recent visit to London, as some tabloids have claimed.

"I was actually there to shoot a music video. It was for work," said Chou.

"It is funny how this became a marriage proposal."
