Spats in Hong Kong : (1) Edison Chen vs Juno Mak (2) Isabella Leong vs EEG
*this entry is specially dedicated to drmak or makthemutant as she sometimes calls herself, because she knows nothing about the korean or japanese entertainment circles but everything about the hongkong + taiwanese one. HAHA. * (PS. you don’t happen to be related to Juno Mak do you?? HAHA thought you mentioned some hongkong relatives some time ago)
(1) Edison Chen vs Juno Mak
(Chinese online news source: MusicTOM and Singapore’s mypaper – dated 21st April 2008 ) Okay I know Juno Mak’s hair isn’t like that now but I just thought the photo MusicTOM had of him didn’t look very nice so…
Anyway! Edison Chen is back, expletives and all! He accepted his first interview since quitting the HK entertainment industry and responded with all of the same arrogance and provocative style we all knew him to have had. It is “Business as Usual” — some news sites remarked about how he was acting very mysteriously in this recent photoshoot for his label, CLOT — for Mr.Chen.
Ok cut the crap to the ugly spat. It is said that Edison Chen was really pissed off that Juno Mak snapped up the property spaces where CLOT used to be located. When asked for his reaction to Juno Mak’s derisive jab at him for selling “street wares” (like, low quality stuff, not street as in hip-hop street street), Mr. Chen said, “I feel sad for those people who attack me. We CLOT people will never say who is worse or better, we’re not tyrants(?). If somebody attacks me Edison Chen or CLOT, I will tell him, (and this is in english) PLEASE TALK SHIT TO MY FACE!”
He also added that “‘somebody’ has to do his part, take care of his business, because Edison chen is going to make a come back, and he will be more formidable than before. Wait and and see! I can see you, but you can’t see me! Actually I don’t want it to be like that, but I cannot keep my silence forever.”
Juno Mak was filming the MV for the Olympic song yesterday, 21st April 2008, and had this to say: “If you have the balls come say it to my face.” O_O
He also said that he didn’t pay attention to the news, but that ever since the sex scandal, Edison Chen has had alot of grievances towards the whole of Hong Kong society. He gave a cold smile and said, “We don’t have to argue in this manner (you one word I one word — Chinese engrish bear with me) , like a crazy woman screaming in the street, everybody’s personality is different, I don’t understand what he’s saying.”
Reporters asked if he would be more careful in what he says in future. “If the media asks me, I will give my opinion, but my intention is not to attack anybody.”
Reporters asked if he thought Edison Chen’s EQ was very low. “I don’t know him very well, and I don’t think my EQ is particularly high either.”
(2) Isabella Leong vs EEG
short one, before I zip off to my essay which is due TODAY OMGOMGOMGOMG
Things about EEG that Isabella Leong is unhappy with
Having to report her movements to EEG all the time
Having to get permission from EEG before leaving Hong Kong
Having to pay for make-up, transport, housing and training by herself
After her recording contract has expired, needs to get EEG’s approval before accepting any kind of music-related job
If she falls sick or meets in an accident and is unable to fulfill her job requirements, EEG has the power to break the contract.
If she does anything unethical or commits a crime, EEG can break the contract.
If she is unable to work because of health reasons, EEG can extend the contract.
EEG can send her to another company to work at any time.
If, in fulfilling her job scope she somehow causes EEG to lose money, she has to compensate EEG for it.
If EEG does not release any music CDs for her, she cannot earn money from anywhere else.
She can only get 4.5% of the selling price of her CDs, 2.7% of photo-product spin-offs, 20% of photo-copyrights, and no copyright commission at all for her songs.
However, other managers are saying the same things like,
1. When a contract is signed, it means that both parties are willing.
2. The most important thing is communication between both parties
and other boring things.
That’s all for Tuesday!!!^_^
