Newcomer Lala Hsu second album Limits

Singer-songwriter LaLa Xu 徐佳瑩 (Xu Jia Ying) will be returning with her second album titled “Limits” on September 3rd. After a year that included a much-publicized breakup, followed by a win at the Golden Melody Awards for Best Newcomer, her new release will summarize experiences from her first year as a singer. Despite the success of her debut album, the former One Million Star winner had doubts about herself at one point. LaLa Xu later took a 10-day vacation in Japan which helped to change her way of thinking. She also got hooked on Facebook around the same time and recovered from her breakup with the support of netizens .

After all the recent events, she said, “When confronting difficult hurdles, as long as one is willing to take the first step, looking back at it now, there’s nothing that can’t be overcome.” LaLa Xu revealed the title song “Limits” was written during her most painful time. She was unable to continue after writing the line "My limits is here" and left the rest to her company. The lyrics reflect her feelings at the time, “Abandon the painkillers, intersect with memories head-on, I still insist on not crying until I get home.” But she joked, “My next challenge to the ‘limits’ is maintaining my figure.”

JJ Lin I Am world Concert Tour in Beijing

JJ Lin launched his “I AM” World Concert Tour in Beijing on the 21st. Nearly 10,000 fans packed the Capital Indoor Stadium to see him perform in person, as well as a glimpse at his new bod. He entertained the audience with 33 songs, including a medley similar to the one performed at this year’s Golden Melody Awards. The concert started off with an impressive video created with the “Light Stage” technology -- a single grain of sand turned into ten thousands to form the shape of JJ Lin. The figure then walked across a desert and shook the crowd with a roar.

JJ Lin made a total of seven costume changes, including a Star Wars-inspired outfit made out of 1000 LED bulbs. He joked, “Singing and dancing at the same time, along with a body full of sweat, it's not that I’m afraid to die, but the staff tested it out for a long time to check for electrical leakage.” JJ also wore a lampshade-like head piece with one of his costumes. A metal part from the “shade” cut his manager’s nose badly during the rehearsals, which might possibly explain his blood-splashed white outfit...

Ariel Lin already in relationship with mystery boyfriend

ariel lin

TAIPEI : While celebrities tend to keep their love lives a secret, Taiwan singer-actress Ariel Lin has revealed to the press that she is seeing someone, reported Chinese media.

"I am a girl who cannot do without relationships. In my heart, there is already a 'him'," said Lin during an appearance at a press conference as the ambassador for the Taiwan Organ Registry and Sharing Center.

When asked about her mystery boyfriend, the sweet-looking 27-year-old refused to give details though she did not deny that he is a big help to her acting and singing career.

Besides shattering the dreams of her male admirers the world over, during the press conference, Lin also proudly showed off her organ donor card which she received in March last year.

"This way of passing on your love for others is often more meaningful than just [donating] money," said Lin of her choice to pledge her organs. "This is something I believe in and it is something I have acted upon."

According to Lin, she was visiting the hospital for a follow-up medical check-up last year after an operation to remove a 2-cm egg-shaped cyst in her brain, when she saw a notice about organ donation.

After a short discussion with her mother, both of them decided to become donors and signed up the next day.

Lin, who was first discovered on the long-running Taiwan variety show "Guess, Guess, Guess", shot to fame after starring in the 2005 idol drama "It Started with a Kiss" with Joe Cheng.

She then went on to win a Golden Bell Award for Best Actress Award in 2008 for her performance in the sequel "They Kiss Again".

Jolin Tsai wait apology from Jay Chou because Patty Hou

All Jolin Tsai is waiting for is an apology.

That was what she said in an interview for a Taiwanese talk-show.

Jolin and Jay Chou's rumoured romance has been the talk of the town and their recent collaboration at Jay's concert gave reporters fodder to speculate a reunion.

While neither party has ever admitted to their relationship, Jolin did a rare tell-it-all session during an interview with veteran host Matilda Tao.

"The period of hating is over," Jolin said.

She revealed that it took her one year to get over the break-up - Jay was said to have broken up with Jolin for Taiwanese host Patty Hou.

She then added that Jay has yet to apologize to her for this.

Jolin's honesty incurred the anger of both her company and Jay's reps; and Jolin was reportedly barred from taking on any more interviews. However, the reps from Jolin's company denied the interview embargo.

Jolin appeared for an event recently and when reporters mentioned the interview with Matilda Tao, Jolin immediately changed her tone and accused the media of sensationalizing the story.

Then how does she feel about spending Chinese Valentine's Day as a singleton?

"I hope I'll get to spend my Valentine's Day next February with a boyfriend. I've got quite a few prospective suitors lately!" Jolin quipped.

Who are these suitors?

"I'm not saying anything this time!"

Nicholas Teo new drama Nu Wang Bu Xia Pan

CTV took a break from idol dramas after the miserable Scent of Love ended two weeks ago. The network will return with a new offering in mid-September called 女王不下班, which literally translates to “Queen Not Getting Off Work”. The drama stars Nicholas Teo (張棟樑), Hsiu Chieh Kai (修杰楷), Lee Kang Yi (李康宜) and Cynthia Wang (王心如). They met with the press last week to introduce their characters.

Actress Lee Kang Yi is returning to TV for the first time since her Golden Bell-nominated role in 2008's Justice For Love. In the new drama, she plays a clever prosecutor who is also the eldest daughter of her family. In contrast to her character, Lee Kang Yi is actually the youngest at home and said her “Big Sis” role will present a new challenge.

Having just completed Rice Family, Hsiu Chieh Kai moves on to play Lee Kang Yi’s boyfriend in the new drama. He is a manly cop who wears nothing underneath his bullet-proof vest (okay, that was solely based on the press event). The actor said he had wanted to play a cop ever since he took part in Black & White. Much to his surprise, the new role is a combination of both “Hero” and “Ruffian”. In an attempt to display his “manliness”, Hsiu Chieh Kai said he did as many push-up’s as he could before stripping down in one scene.

As for Nicholas Teo, he is also returning to TV after a long hiatus. His character is a rich man surrounded by women because he just can’t say no. Nicholas Teo faced his first challenge already when he had to be filmed while driving a Hummer. Operating a vehicle doesn't sound very difficult, but the only problem is, he drives on the other side of the road back home in Malaysia. Filming went on till 2 to 3 am for one scene in which he was required to park the massive car.

Ken Zhu and Kelly Lin has broken up relationship

They say love can conquer all.

But in Ken Zhu and Kelly Lin's case, their love was not enough to overcome their differences.

According to reports, the pair has split up and Kelly has moved out from their home. Close associates of the couple revealed that their differences in personality were the cause of the break-up.

While Kelly is cool-headed and reserved, Ken is panicky and easily irritated. This difference in attitude led to many quarrels - even over trivial matters such as watching television.

Even though Kelly was said to be hopeful that their love can overcome all at the beginning, the pair eventually gave up after a five-year run, deciding on an amicable split.

The couple met in 2005 when working on a movie and their relationship was kept under wraps until the two were caught wearing couple outfits at their home in 2007. The lovebirds were even reported to have registered their marriage in Taiwan last year.

When both were quizzed about the split, neither one confirmed the news.

Kelly, who is currently busy with filming in Xi An, China, only replied that Ken and her were "only friends" before hanging up on the phone.

Ken was in Hangzhou, China when reporters asked him if he has broken up with Kelly.

Ken first asked if they had asked Kelly, and the reporters replied in the positive, Ken said, "Then it's whatever she told you."

Even as reporters probe, Ken repeated the same line, saying that it is "whatever she said".

Chow Yun Fat in film Let The Bullets Fly

Let The Bullets Fly

Let The Bullets Fly is the latest gangster flick from action icon Chow Yun Fat and will be directed by Jiang Wen (Devils on the Doorstep, The Sun Also Rises).

When last we had word from Jiang Wen's Let The Bullets Fly the word was bad - the film had been delayed enough that it was going to miss the fall festival season - but now it's back with something better: The first proper trailer.

Chow Yun Fat stars in this one and while the rock and roll soundtrack is a bit jarring when placed against the richly detailed period visuals, those visuals are still pretty damn fantastic. It's good to see Chow involved in some good, old fashioned gunplay again.

“Set in China during the warring 1920s, notorious bandit chief Zhang descends upon a remote provincial town posing as its new mayor, an identity that he had hijacked from Old Tang, himself a small-time imposter. Hell-bent on making a fast buck, Zhang soon meets his match in the tyrannical local gentry Huang as a deadly battle of wit and brutality ensues”.

Cast :
Jiang Wen
Chow Yun Fat
Ge You
Carina Lau Kar Ling
Hu Jun
Chen Kun
Liao Fan
Zhou Yun
Feng Xiaogang
Shao Bing

The movie has a budget of $18 million and is scheduled to open across China on 1st October 2010.

Huang Xiao Ming and Joe Chen in movie Ji Lang Qing Chun

Huang Xiao Ming

New movie "Ji Lang Qing Chun" produced by John Wu held its opening ceremony at China Diaoyutai State Guesthouse yesterday. The chief producer John Woo together with leads Huang Xiao Ming and Joe Chen as well as many other important casts all graced the ceremony. Though he was very tightlipped regarding the plot, the reporters still managed to understand that the love story will involve scenes of Huang Xiao Ming and Joe Chen being very intimate. Joe Chen will also boldly wear bikini in the movie.

According to the introduction, "Ji Lang Qing Chun" is a story based on dragon boating with an aim to show the Asian Games spirit of determination and optimism.

Her character is in the national dragon boat team and Huang Xiao Ming will be the coach cum boyfriend that encourages her along the way.

When discussing the character, Huang Xiao Ming revealed that "Tian Hua (Male lead's name) is a near perfect man that all females and even males couldn't help but love. He had initially rejected this role "It was a too perfect character. I really didn't know how I should act. In "Summer's Desire", Luo Xi was already a very perfect guy but it turned out that this character was even more perfect." As for Joe Chen, although she will have lots of water sports scenes in "Ji Lang Qing Chun", she's actually fearful of water in reality and has been training on a daily basis now. She can row 1km without stopping now but the intensive training has caused bruises on both her arms and legs.

With regards to this collaboration with Huang Xiao Ming, Joe Chen is anticipating the different kind of sparks and when asked if her first movie on-screen kiss will be given to Huang Xiao Ming, she smiled and revealed nothing.

The whole ceremony had a very serious atmosphere and both leads departed soon after the group photos. At the end of the ceremony, when John Woo accepted the reporters' interviews, he expressed that both Huang Xiao Ming and Joe Chen are younger actors and actresses that he really likes and he believes that they have the ability.

Some fans from all across Asia spent as much as forty thousand dollars (NT) just to follow Vic for two days and participate in his premiere events at Taipei and Taichung, as well as his two fan meetings.

In a recent interview with host Matilda Tao, Vic expressed his thoughts on men needing to make more money than women, “If a man makes less money than the woman, he will not have any say on anything.” In the end, the media took his explanation as a reason for his breakup with Barbie Hsu. A little flustered, Vic advised everyone to watch the interview in full to understand. But in regards to earning money, Vic emphasized, “Isn’t a man’s career important?... Unless he’s living off of the woman. If I get married and build a family in the future, I hope that I can be responsible for my family.” He added that he feels his career achievement is not up to standards yet. He hopes that he will get there when he’s 40. When asked if he explained this to Barbie, he commented, “There’s no need to care so much about these types of reports.”

Jay Chou film Secret 2 in 3D version

Jay Chou

Recently Jay Chou has been busy with his world tour, but in recent days a Taiwanese cinematographer Kiven revealed on his blog the plans of Jay Chou's new movie "Secret 2", the female lead has been exposed early. According to cinematographer Kiven: "After Jay Chou is finished with his concert next year, he'll film the sequel to Secret. At present the script is already being planned, this time it's going to be a bit more sci-fi, and also bits of it will be in 3D."

When Jay Chou was filming "Secret" he already had ideas for "Secret 2", it was just because he was busy with other things afterwards that nothing came of it. The script for the new movie has already been in the works since the start of last year, it's been confirmed now that they will start filming in September next year. Earlier Jay Chou revealed to the media, besides the background crew for the movie not changing, the majority of the male cast will also be the same, but for the female cast he wants to "change things". He's worried that the audience have too deep of an impression of Guai Lun Mei and Alice Tzeng, so with a newcomer it will give the movie a different feeling. And about other details of the movie, Jay Chou has been unwilling to reveal any information.

But cinematographer Kiven leaked quite a lot of Jay Chou's "secrets" on his blog; just like last time "Secret 2" will be about time travelling, it's just that this time there'll be more creative scenes and stories. In Director Chou's new album "The Era" he has been plugging the "time travelling" songs, this time's "Secret 2" female lead, Man Qi, was recommended to Jay Chou by a good friend. The female lead is pretty and pure, her sweet temperament is in line with the style of people Jay Chou uses. The different thing to "Secret" is that this time in "Secret 2", it will be about "time travel" between now and the future, due to the fact the male and female leads are from different eras and have different technologies, a lot of exciting stories arise from it. The male lead is a high school student, the female lead is from the technology-advanced future, very sci-fi, for this time Jay Chou will use 3D in the movie and make a music love story with the "Hollywood" style grand feeling.

Reporters asked for further confirmation about the details revealed by Kiven about "Secret", and they got into contact with JVR staff. Staff member Mr Wang did not deny plans about "Secret 2", but he declined to comment about further details.

Jolin Tsai sexy hot pants in single Honey Trap

Jolin Tsai

The highly anticipated music video of Jolin Tsai's latest single, "Honey Trap" will finally be released this coming Tuesday. Jolin specially invited a Korean MV director to film this MV. Usually, Kpop artists allot two full days to film a music video, but due to Jolin's tight schedule, she could only spare a day. After 25 hours, Jolin danced for over a hundred times, where her body finally gave up and she had to take three hours of rest before continuing. She completed filming the MV as scheduled and even the Director commented, "Do Taiwanese artists all work this hard?"

In the MV, Jolin plays a trendy robot, purchased and brought home by the male lead of the video. The male lead thought he could control her, but Jolin turned out to have her own feelings and so she started doing the Voguing dance. Upon seeing the finished product, Jolin smiled, "After dancing for over a hundred times, at least it didn't go to waste. This dance is very unique and interesting. It can also be a form of shoulder muscle therapy if you can master it."

Jolin changed three different sets of clothes for the MV and even wore hot-pants, but she spoke truthfully, "The clothes this time are quite revealing. I like it a lot, but only for photo shooting and MV. I just don't dare to wear them outside!"

Kay Tse will release first mandarin album

Kay Tse

It's been a while since Kay Tse appeared in public, yesterday she attended the (Anti-Corruption Ambassador) event. Kay reveals that she's recently busy recording for her debut Mandarin album. For a perfect album, she will give up on the opportunities to earn extra money, she will request some 'time off' from her company. She said: "This time I am really focusing on doing my best for this album because it is my first debut Mandarin album after all. So for this month I didn't really participate in any public events. Kay also admits that she has lost some income: "Don't know the calculations and not worried about having no income at all. I will earn money in different way. It's more important that my new album does well."

Also, ever since Kay and her husband Louis Cheung started a family together, the couple are often targeted by the media. First they were described as a poor married couple, then when Kay's popularity grew based on her song (Wedding Street Invitation), the media started saying Louis counted on his wife to eat. Now when Kay's popularity decreases, the media flips the rumors around saying Louis has to run around looking for jobs to support the family. Every day there are fresh new rumors about them. Towards this, Louis says: "How much pressure Kay experiences, I know it the most. If someone is trying to do something to harm and attack her, she will actually think of it as a way to help her own growth, she's really strong."

Before Kay has often been criticized that when she sings, she gets off-tune, as her husband, Louis brings justice for his wife: "You can count your five fingers the amount of times she made a mistake in her singing. Hong Kong singers have intense jobs, will definitely use a lot of physical energy. Which singer hasn't gotten off-tune before, who hasn't made a mistake before?! The soccer king makes mistakes too, kicking a ball 12 yards and will miss!" Louis said that there was a short period of time where Kay's vocal cords had an infection, a flipped throat" situation. One will know why she made mistakes if they knew she had his condition. Louis felt that Hong Kong people are like "critical culture", every person acts like they're a professional singing teacher and can jump out to say who made a mistake.

He exposed himself that he's bad at remembering lyrics, the captions machine encountered some problems during the concert, he teased himself saying that he's "second headmaster." Speaking of the Miss HK getting booed, Raymond expressed: "I onlt heard loud sounds. (Consider cutting that part?) Ask the producer, but then I don't have anough time to change my costumes?" Reporters insisted on the question and asked 3 times again, Raymond begged for mercy: "Don't force me, I didn't watch the clip. (Especially filmed for the concert?) I think so, it's broadcast for the first time. (It has all the contestants' numbers and names in it!) Really? Then when I appeared in the MV, did they show my name?"

Don't know how to sing Linda Chung's songs

She didn't give me one!" Asked if he invited Linda to come watch the show? He said: "I invited many colleagues from TVB, but didn't give face."

Speaking of a Macau fan buying his concert ticket from a stranger and got scammed, Raymond said: "If I had a ticket, I would give it to them. We all should really buy tickets from an official seller. What I really don't like is people getting my signature who don't really like me, using my tickets to make profits. Anyone who wants my signature can get one from a public event I attend, anyone who wants to see me can join my fanclub."
