Taiwanese multi-hyphenate Jay Chou attended an autograph session for his latest album Opus 12 in Hong Kong yesterday. As it was the last day of the Chinese New Year, which is also known as Chinese Valentine’s Day, he was probed on spending the special occasion away from his rumoured girlfriend Hannah Quinlivan.
In response to the questions regarding Hannah, the 34-year-old claimed that he does not have a girlfriend. Jay also brought his mum along on this trip to enjoy the Hong Kong cuisine and to visit the newly unveiled wax figure of himself at Madame Tussauds museum.
“I have many female friends. Since spending Valentine’s Day with any of them doesn’t seem right, accompanying my mum is the best. In this way, there wouldn’t be any misunderstanding,” he explained.
Among the one thousand people that turned up for the autograph session, a fan who was holding a board which read “Double J’s chests are so big, so sexy” attracted the most attention. “Double J” refers to Jay and his ex-rumoured beau Jolin Tsai, and the former later commented that he did not see the board.
He added that there is no need to compare between the two as he would “definitely lose”, indirectly hinting at Jolin’s well-endowed figure.
Responding to questions on the verbal dispute between his godfather Anthony Wong and fellow Taiwanese singer Show Luo, Jay mentioned that though he read about it, he has not spoke to Anthony about it. When asked if he would play peacemaker, he said, “You should know his [Anthony’s] personality.”
