"My baby Baby, give you a little sweet ...", the familiar "Baby" let the singer Zhang hung a night, but before the blast, she had been singing in the big live house for years, nurturing a bunch of die-hard fans, and after the baby single, she was in the 24th session of the Golden Melody Award, "Rosy you." Won the best lyricist, such a result of Zhang Hung to become a well-known public figure, but she constantly reflects on what value she should bring to society as a public figure, so she will always emphasize that the public should have the ability to "think independently" so that the influence of public figures will not change the value they believe in.

In 2013, she held the national flag of Taiwan students at the Manchester University concert in England and introduced his country to the fans, who were questioned by Chinese students in Taiwan, causing a stir, but she still insists on the value she believes in and bravely speaks because she believes:

"You can't be a citizen because you're a singer, I don't have to choose an identity, I can use all my identity to understand everything that's happening in this world." 」

So she has voiced her solidarity with the Chinese Wukan villagers against corrupt government officials, against the beautiful Bay development case, against media monopolies, for the sun-flower movement and for Hong Kong's actions, and for her independent thinking and active care of the society, which has made her fans more attractive. (Why do we stand up:3/19 Legislative Yuan to visit: A real civic education class )

"By understanding that this issue can be more acceptable to the general people, it also allows everyone to become,

A happy and comfortable general person. 」

Wait, for that time, Faye Wong said:

"Deep down I'm still a mess." The cultural impact of Beijing and Hong Kong has stirred up deep in my heart. After entering the entertainment circle, its rapid changes make the impact acute. I am no doubt more fearful of the different circumstances in which I face aesthetic standards and living habits. Due to unfamiliar, dare not to talk to the mouth, so people say, I believe a sentence, no assertive. This makes me feel very confused. 」

This is like the gay friends in the mainstream social culture faced to the situation, because of fear and dare not tell the truth of their own, only with the social atmosphere load floating load. (Let us release ourselves: free, be at ease to do ourselves )

But after 1993 years, she began to recognize her own special, color changed back to the "Faye Wong", and began to reflect on her own album of personal attitude towards life, try to write lyrics, in the Chinese circle to find their own music style, she said:

"I have my own understanding, my own way to deduce, as for others to accept, is another thing ... I insist on being who I am .

Is such an outspoken personality, let her although not to show the position of comrades, but in the gay circle because she is brave to do their own attitude, regard her as a gay idol.

when the fan album was pushed, a narrator's observation of Faye Wong was: "I think, many people have made mistakes, only because the position of the station is different, look different, the time is different, and found more different, and she can not hear her feelings, efforts to record also no trace can follow, then dialogue, Also surprised to see their own self-righteous, to her confusion is drawn long shade, she is not complicated, just multi-level, she stands very dangerous, but from the measured singing "obsession not regret", stubborn, steady, full of absolute, singing "I would like to", soft, warm, with a holy Halo on the head, but this is only a part of her, No one can usurp her space, no one can define her face, so simple, there is a simple word can describe her: fans, let us listen to this "obsession not regret", light to explore Faye Wong's charming appearance. (Women's many looks: they all want to say: women, not only one way )

"Obsession with no Regrets"

This time I'm obsessed with the wayward
I don't care if it's wrong or right
Even if I'm stuck in a desperate
Even if I'm obsessed, I don't regret it.

Don't say I should give up and I should open my eyes
I use my heart to see the feeling
You're not how I know
Even if I'm obsessed, I don't regret it.

I'm not as perfect as you think.
I admit, sometimes I can't tell the truth.
It's not that I don't want to get out of the pile.

This time it's you and not who.

I want to use someone's heart to experience the real feeling around
Even if the pain is the tears belong to my sadness
Whose heart can I use to feel the truth
Even if tiredness is tired can only be obsessed with no regrets

I want to use someone's heart to experience the real feeling around
Even if the pain is the tears belong to my sadness
Whose heart can I use to feel the truth
Even if tiredness is tired can only be obsessed with not regret

He Yi Poem "I want to be proud to share, I am gay"

In the November 2012, Hong Kong singer He Shishi, who had always been concerned about social movements, took part in a gay parade called "Comrade is daring" (Dare to Love). Accompanied by her family and friends, she said to the public and the media, and to herself, "I am so proud to be here and say that I am gay." She shed tears, against her own bravery. After stepping down, He Yi's family embraced her and she was the first female singer in Hong Kong to openly be gay. He Yi Poetry debut for more than 10 years, the media to her neutral form of questioning, also often in her gossip on the mill. He Shishi said:

"In fact, it should have been done a few years ago, but it could not be a suitable opportunity." Today in a love-filled, peaceful, inclusive environment, I have the duty and responsibility to stand up for love. 」

In front of more than 4,000 people in the parade, how brave would it be to say such a thing? (same field Gayon:2013 comrades march in Lyon, equal while now!) )

He Yi Poetry from his debut has been in the music efforts, followed the master "Anita Mui" to the showbiz. She won the gold medal for the first female singer at the as awards ceremony in Taiwan in 2007. When everyone passes "the time of He Yi poetry", she is more focused on her non-mainstream music market, and later launches the album "Ten Days in The Madhouse", the whole dish almost no love songs, 10 songs are 10 social issues, writing about mental patients, adolescent problems, children in poor countries. She also set up a foundation, active charity, He Shishi for young people to do the best demonstration, care about the weak, caring for the community, let us not think He Yi poetry is an entertainer, more think she is a full range of social care. On a program He Shishi to his deceased master Anita Mui said:

"I want to tell her that I've been trying to be a good person for the past few years," she said. For her, this is more important than being a good singer. 」

He Shishi in 2011 began the stage play "Jia Baoyu" tour, she drag Jia Baoyu try to deconstruct life in the play, learn to face loss, accept fate, understand growth, finally find their own existence value. Is it really like her in the real world? It may also be as if each of us has spent all his life chasing the meaning of our existence. and He Yi Poetry in recent years also launched a lot of songs related to gay. 09, He Shishi held "superhero concert", she called in the concert, as long as for the loved ones, for the things they believe, everyone can be superhero. " It also advocates respect for different sexual orientation. He Yi in the concert, the Charlis, deliberately choreographed together, "Luce Mary" and "Rolls-Royce" are talking about men and women, women, male men's three kinds of love. Let us from this "Rolls-Royce" to see comrades in the pursuit of love in the struggle and courage. (We also need to keep working hard: the victory of gay rights!) France behind the same-sex marriage and Adoption Act


Rolls and Reiss are all men of pattern.
Rouse was a good seed for a school team.
Reiss only likes reading.
They'll see you sooner or later.
Live the same white shirt every day
The history of Luo man began in the adjoining tables and chairs
But the two of them are not presumptuous.

To be a close friend, probably with love.
But if you're so in love with a good brother, others will say no.

When you get carried away, your shoulders are back.
I enjoy it, but I'm afraid to say it.
Two eyes, even if you move away.
I know it's love in my Heart

How can men and men be so intimate?
It's hard to face, but he hooks his finger.
That's why Reiss is so crazy.
At last he threw himself at
Look at the four eyes and then remove the shirt.
In the confusion of the rolls of the first to know
I've never been a good woman.

To be a close friend, probably with love.
But if you're so in love with a good brother, others will say no.
When the innocent will let this tragedy uncover
He was really surprised to remember that since he met
Together study to go shopping to see the sea

Day and day also intimate like lovers cards finally opened

Why are you still afraid if you feel love like this
Still counting who he could love
The one who accepts this love
It's a crime to let go
The Endurance of Eternity never comes out.
The world will remain unchanged

will only let more crimes bury love
But to love Like Liang Zhu

Artists also love her, Japanese orchestra goddess "vertebral name Ringo", the next page

Vertebra name Ringo "alienation feeling, let a person have deep thinking space"

Maybe you haven't heard her song, but you must have heard her name: The biggest feature of the Ringo, the singer of the orchestra Tokyo incident, is that the lyrics of her works are drawn from the view of things around them, such as the "Queen of Kabuki-cho", a work accomplished by her almost being caught as queen, "stem" is because of the 911 terrorist attacks created, but also because this kind of living lyrics so that the listener can be more emotional. Her early lyrics were heavily used by Japanese young people, but fans often had to flip dictionaries to understand the meaning behind the lyrics, and she said:

"She hopes to have a special sense of alienation in Chinese characters, giving people the space to think deeply." 」

And such a literary style of lyrics, but also let the people of the arts and culture Ringo and mustard Ryunosuke, the three island Yukio, the same as the Japanese artist inherited the "morbid beauty of tradition." (Jay Chou's Queen lyricist: stop it!) Dream meet is to earn! In this life I only do Huang Junrong )

The Ringo is more changeable in composition style, from rock, classical elements, jazz, blues, and rap are all the musical styles she tries, and different meanings are expressed by various musical elements, like the "Infinite repayment", which shows its "real" side in "the Garki semen chestnut flower" with the wildly joyful rock. In addition to the establishment of Western rock music, there are Japanese music, jazz, and even the European classical elements in the inside, but also to add to her musical world of multiple colors. (Cross-border music is more interesting: cross-border musician Su Zihin: If life is a paycheck, there's no sense of being alive. )

There are many artists who like the Ringo of vertebral names, Jay Chou, Gutianle, Chen Shanni, Lin Jia are all her fans, because regardless of her lyrics on the precise emotional touch or composition of the multiple attempts to create a unique style, but also because of this kind of mysterious and crazy temperament, let her become the goddess of the gay circle. Finally, "The Ringo" let everyone experience the unique charm of vertebral name.

"The Court"

Short and half Summer Nights lie
It's too superficial to be suspicious.

If even the white of the wrist that recognizes the shadow of the day
All to forget ... Whether it will be warm and not freeze
It doesn't matter if you don't connect

The nature of bamboo and snow is a disaster
Or jet-black for the black record.
Condemn the anticipation of that season's summer shaking
I'll see you. Saro by the Grey Temptation

If there is no more luxuriant and no blame
When you meet someone's memory, you get stolen.
Just use your throat and you'll spill over.

I don't want to know much more
How good would it be if I could sleep like this
Ah Ah! Your carotid artery.
It must have been so white now.

These five female singers all use their own actions and songs to bring us many gifts: "Love, is the only expression of" Mei, "Simple Love a" person "Zhang Hang, tell us, Love is the world's most beautiful things, and strive to pursue the right!

Faye Wong that sentence: "Someone else said I believe a word, this is not assertive" tell us, no matter what others say, as long as they insist to do their own, you can find their own stage. He Yi poem is starting from oneself: "I want to share proudly, I am gay", so that more people are oppressed by the mainstream society can stand up, like the society and their own honest the most authentic self.

The last vertebral name Ringo tells us "alienation, let a person have deep thinking space", no matter how much people need to cluster animals, a certain distance is not let us escape from society, but to leave some space for themselves to retain their original, show your most unique value.

I hope we can learn from these female singers how to love ourselves and the world, and to exert our power to make the world more full of love and warmth.
