Jay Chou married in Selby!!!

Postby Barnsley » Mon, 19 Jan 2015 9:46 am

Who'd a thought it!!!

Wish I had known as I could sent my mum and dad over to get some autographs, its only 10 mins from their place.

Hope the guests got wrapped up warm as the weather has been a bit on the chilly side of late.

You guys really don't know Jay Chou? I guarantee you've heard his music at probably at least every other time you've been in a taxi playing the local Chinese pop station.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jay_Chou

He's the Asian Michael Jackson, minus the child molestation/sexual ambiguity bit.

In November 2014, Chou confirmed his relationship with model Hannah Quinlivan (zh/vi/ko).[123] The pair had been dating since 2010.[124] In December 2014, Chou announced that he would marry Hannah Quinlivan on his 36th birthday.[125] The two eventually got married in Selby Abbey of North Yorkshire on 17 January 2015, one day before Chou's birthday. According to Chou's official Facebook page, the couple has been engaged since early 2014.[126][127]

Jay Chou has real talent though, not so sure on Justin Timberlake. Watch some of his piano solos on youtube, such as the ones from the movie Secret (不能说的秘密). Or "Jay chou piano battle".

Still, better comparison than Michael Jackson. Heartthrob, rap attempts (one sounds slurry, one sounds meh), popular enough to be featured in SNL or Taiwanese SNL-equivalent. Dated controversial impressionable female popstars of that time (Britney Spears/Jolin Tsai). Possess at least one notable talent.

Uhm you also just described Michael Jackson. Except the "heart throb" part. :lol:

I think the title was always given because he sold so many records and influence the genre, akin to Michael Jackson. Time or someone called him the Asian King of Pop. I don't think Justin Timberlake was really quite so popular, or influenced his genre.

I've still never heard of him.

It's a bit like that question 'If a tree in a forest falls over, and there's no one there to hear it, does it make a noise?'.

If a celebrity you've never heard of does something, is there reason to notice?

:) :-k


p.s. Can't he at least be an ex-con, trannie, or ex-PAPster gone wild?
