Designing Styles for Female College Students , S.H.E Laments No Time Off for Year End Holidays, Sunday December 14, 2008 Taiwan

S.H.E who became endorsers for women fashion early this year certainly demonstrated their huge popularity and successfully achieved an impressive sales increase for the clothes line. The manufacturers were so happy with the result that they decided to hold a “Christmas Change of Fashion Show ~ S.H.E My Personal Stylist” function to show their appreciation to the consumers. Thus, allowing all S.H.E fans a chance to interact with S.H.E in close proximity.This focus of this function was to create fashion styles suitable for the three big year-end holidays including Christmas, New Year and Chinese Year New, so that all young women could be dressed in a fashionable style similar to that of S.H.E for these special occasions. In order to achieve satisfactory result befitting of being stylists, S.H.E already had discussions on the various styles suitable for the various occasions so that everyone can attend these most important year end events in high fashion. Yesterday (Dec 13th), in order to increase interest for the function, the organizers invited several popular female college students from the show [College Students, Are You Ready?] to appear as models so that this fashion show in which S.H.E will be acting as stylists for the first time would be a huge success. To no one’s surprise, the styles created by S.H.E enabled the college students to look fashionable even in casual sports wear. They were so satisfied with the look that they wanted to go to holiday parties dressed like that.However, the incredibly creative S.H.E lamented that basically these three big holidays meant no time off for them because as they got closer to year end, their working schedule became even tighter, so they had to be satisfied with creating styles for others to go partying. However S.H.E also expressed that they had not spend New Year’s Eve in Taiwan for many years, finally this year there is a chance for them to do so in Taiwan. Although they still had to work and even must take the rapid transit to rush to locations at the opposite ends of Taiwan, but at least afterwards, they could go home and spend New Year’s with their families and they would even be able to count down the New Year with Taiwanese fans. This would be their greatest satisfaction.

S.H.E teaches The Secret of "Chasing Women", Sunday October 26 , 2008 Taiwan

Yesterday, S.H.E, bringing their newest album [FM S.H.E], arrived in Beijing. During their exclusive interview with Sohu Entertainment, the three discussed what they considered a good man: considerate, generous, talented, responsible, worship-worthy…amidst the conversation, Hebe even mentioned that Jay Chou had composed one of the songs in the album. In comparison to the flurry of romantic rumors previously, she seemed to be very open about it.Jay Chou Contribution for the New AlbumNo Fear of Romantic Rumors from HebeIn their exclusive interview with Sohu Entertainment, S.H.E who was working hard to promote their new album, openly revealed that one of the songs in the album “Silence” was composed by Hebe’s rumored boyfriend Jay Chou. This was not the first time Jay collaborated with them. The earlier romantic rumor was also started with Hebe collaborating with him on his MV “Going Backward”. This time with him helping out again, the female lead in this romantic rumor, Hebe, profusely praised the song written by Jay Chou as being very good, without any hints of intentionally dodging the issue. Her open attitude was as if the romantic rumor had never happened.S.H.E Reveals Their Standards for an Ideal ManTeaches the Secret of Chasing WomenWhen asked as their standards for an ideal man, the three each had their own ideas: For Selina, an ideal man must be honest and responsible; Ella’s ideal man must be comfortable and easy to get along; only Hebe’s standard for an ideal man was more special – “He must be have some type of specialty that can make me worship him.” There seemed to be a wealth of meaning between the lines.There were also men that S.H.E particularly disliked, such as men that are “petty, disagreeable…” and other similar characteristics. At the same time, they also revealed to all men their close-kept secret of “chasing women”: [If she says “I love you” 1000 times to you, then you have to say “I love you” back 1001 times. Afterwards hug her and kiss her. Then everything will be OK.

Jay Chou JieLun Sees Only Hebe; S (Selina) and E (Ella) Mock Themselves, Saying That They Aren't People!

S.H.E. was able to get Jay Chou JieLun-- who was previously rumored to be with member Hebe-- to guest for the last session of their radio program, FM S.H.E. The two rumored parties were more than "not awkward" with each other-- they even discussed underwear quite freely!-- but, rather curiously, in speaking of female artists with whom he has collaborated, President Chou only mentioned Hebe. This made the other two members of S.H.E. shout, "Are we not people, too?!"S.H.E.'s on-line radio program-- broadcast for only a month-- is about to come to an end; their last guest is Jay Chou. Both parties promoted each other's respective albums-- 我的電台 - FM S.H.E./My Radio Station - FM S.H.E. and 魔杰座/Capricorn.During the interview, the topic unexpectedly shifted to underwear! The three girls wanted to know whether Jay, who typically doesn't wear any underwear, has ever "gotten caught" in his zipper. Selina even suddenly blurted out, "Or do you shrink back?" This made Jay laugh awkwardly in embarrassment; S.H.E. could only use "We were talking about the skin on your stomach!" to justify the question. Afterwards, Jay admitted frankly that he hadn't expected them to ask such a question. He also revealed that, once, when he was filming a cellphone commercial, he actually forgot to zip up!When asked to "name three female artists with whom (he) has collaborated," President Chou mentioned only Hebe. This made Ella shout, "You could have just answered S.H.E.! But you only mentioned Hebe... are we not people, too?!" Selina said, "That's right. One of us is a pig, and the other a chicken!" But the concerned party seemed to be quite poised and self-possessed; although he was in front of Hebe, Jay spoke freely, revealing that he had his first kiss at age 14 in the 大安森林公園 Ta-An Forest Park.Jay said that, if he had to choose one of the three girls to be the female lead of a movie, he would choose Hebe. His reasoning was this: "Selina is too "expensive"-looking; Ella is too tomboyish." Ella said slyly, "We're friends, not "rice (dinner) friends"!", deliberately referring to Selina's lawyer "rice (dinner) friend" to make a joke.Jay cleared up his previous statement ("The thing that I regret the most is going to 代官山 Daikanyama"); he said, "I was only joking!" As for his "We broke up last year," an answer he gave on a television program, Jay said, "It was a slip of the tongue. I always thought we broke up last year." He denied, however, that this was evidence of his finding "Miss Patty Hou PeiCen" hard to forget.

S.H.E Advocates “Girls Ought To Be Strong” by Practising “The Art of Self Defence in Love”, Wednesday October 8, 2008 Taiwan

S.H.E practises “The Art of Self Defence in Love” to fight the conventional societal ideals of beauty. The trio advocates for girls not to be just concerned with looks, but also to be confident and “Girls’ Ought To Be Strong”. In their MV, the trio took on the roles of Love Coaches to listen to the love problems of the girls and encourage them to stand up for themselves. In addition, SHE also extends their invitation to fans to join them for the “S.H.E TOP GIRL New Songs Concert” on 19 October. Please visit for more details.In their latest album FM S.H.E, one of the new songs – “Girls Ought To Be Strong” adapted part of its tune from Wong Fei Hong’s “Men Ought To Be Strong”. The music genre is the line of “Chin-Hop”, a blend of Chinese music and Hip-Hop. The lyrics encouraged girls not to be beaten in Love, and the need to be true to and love themselves; advocating for strong female awareness. A martial arts coach was invited to teach S.H.E “The Art of Self Defence in Love” in preparation for filming of the MV. The 1st stunt is to kick away the Poor Love that broke the hearts of the girls; while the 2nd stunt is to open one’s arms to welcome New Romance. The 3rd stunt is to learn how to Protect and Love oneself while in a relationship. Next, S.H.E imparted these stunts to the rest of the girls trapped in love and encouraged them to be independent and stand up for themselves. There is no need to wait in vain for Prince Charming to appear, but to be proactive to embark on the journey to Protect Love.S.H.E expressed that, “No one is perfect. Hence, do not compromise in love just because you feel inferior. We girls, must be confident of ourselves. If you have loved the wrong person, just get out and move on. Only then will you eventually meet Mr Right!” Meanwhile, “Mdm Xi Bi” who addressed fans’ love problems on air in FM SHE weekly, offered her usual advice to all the girls indecisive in love, “That person is not the only one on Earth, no point wallowing in sorrow over him”.While practising their stunts, S.H.E had fun sparring with each other too. However when the trio donned the hot-trendy-sexy-babe outfit while filming, they had to stifle their laughter as they felt that the clothes were contradictory and out of place with Chinese Kungfu. Subsequently, the trio changed into sportswear to act as Love Coaches and listened to the array of love problems of the girls present. SHE found the love problems beyond their imagination and felt for their heartaches, in the end, they also joined the girls to swear and cry.S.H.E has always been very independent, but occasionally when faced with love problems, they would feel lost too. While recording “Girls Ought To Be Strong” in the studio, Ella suddenly saw a fleeting shadow behind the recording producer and was scared stiff. She was stunned momentarily before she “escaped” from the studio. Pale-faced and with a quiver in her voice, she asked the recording producer, “Did you see anything just now?” Ella has never met with any strange encounters in the company’s recording studio prior to this; but once she composed herself after the incident, she was inspired and felt even more for the song. Therefore she took the initiative to suggest different ideas to the producer to enrich the singing parts of the song. In the past, Ella would be in-charge of the Rap parts in SHE’s songs. However upon Ella, Selina and Hebe’s discussion, they decided to do the Rap together to bring out the impact of the song to encourage girls to stand up for themselves in Love. As a result, the effect was indeed very good. The trio felt that they are actually cheering for, and encouraging themselves to be brave in love too, when singing this song.For most time in the past year, S.H.E had held concerts overseas. Hence on 19 October, to the delight of many fans in Taiwan, S.H.E will hold the “S.H.E TOP GIRL New Songs Concert” in Selina’s school. SHE reveals that other than performing the new songs from “FM SHE”, they will also be showing off their new dance steps.

Swimming in the Buff Trend? Record sales exceed 100,000, Ella to swim bareback, Wednesday September 25, 2008 Taiwan

Swimming in the Buff Trend? Record Sales Exceed 100,000, Ella to Swim BarebackS.H.E exudes their sexiness; Hebe and ELLA were donned in flowing dresses, with only Selina being more conservatively dressed. However the sharp-tongued Selina actually used Ella as a sales record wager by declaring, “If record sales exceed 100,000, she will wear only swimming trunks and go bareback.” Once again, another group of artistes has ride on the trend of swimming in the buff.New album – FM SHE uses webcast as an idea. The trio had dressed “more formally” to publicise their new album and officiate the opening of their web station. It was a rare occasion to see Ella in a floral dress with a deep V-plunging neckline. In addition, her well-endowed figure totally refuted earlier reports of her being “itsy-bitsy”. Meanwhile, Hebe does not wish to be outdone and kept standing up to bend forward and bow in attempt to show her small cleavage. Selina was dressed more sombrely and when teased by media that she was perhaps under strict supervision by her rumoured lawyer boyfriend, she quickly clarified, “If all 3 of us are dressed too sexily, the whole group will look weird.”While their record company has set target for this album to be the year’s champion for record sales, S.H.E was more casual about it. When touted by media to ride on the recent “swimming in the buff” trend, Selina actually said, “Ok, if record sales exceed 100,000, then ask Van Fan Yi Chen to swim in the buff again.” But in the end, everything became distorted and ELLA was asked to swim bareback in swimming trunks. In response, Ella said in style, “I could, but I worry everyone will mistake me as a guy.”Selina wrote the lyrics for a new song “Already Silent” in the album. She explained that the music was composed by Jay Chou upon hearing her love story, however she refused to reveal who the male was. “Go ask Jay, I told him everything. But should he let the cat out, I will definitely tell on him too.” In conjunction with another song, “Wo Ai Fan Nao” (lit transl: I Love Troubles), the trio has made some small losses in their investments recently, and could only console themselves by saying, “If only we had not buy.”At least with Meng Niu concerts to proceed as scheduled, the trio had no troubles in their career. Selina was initially saying, “Most people can usually detoxify by drinking water.” However when the media asked about Meng Niu, the trio acted blur and replied, “Everything is still under investigation, but since products were taken off-shelf, it is inevitable for the atmosphere to be tensed.” Despite they were unable to get any break with the scheduled concerts going as planned, the trio are nonetheless happy to be able to meet up with fans.

FM S.H.E Warmly Invites Diva Zhang Hui Mei to be The First Interviewee, Friday September 19, 2008 Taiwan

Four dog lovers can’t stop talking about dogs; Ah Mei helps her dog son to come out of the closet.Yesterday S.H.E started recording for their internet radio ‘FM S.H.E’ which was started because of their album ‘My Station FM S.H.E’, the first ‘mysterious guest’ that they interviewed is diva Zhang Hui Mei (Ah Mei) who is currently leading an isolated life. Ah Mei who is concentrating on her preparations for her Japan concert specially come out for S.H.E, and she even sang a Taiwanese song ‘Jia Hou’ with Selina, Hebe and Ella said happily, “This part of singing have to record down and use it as handphone ringtone.”To invite the guest for interview every week, S.H.E gave many choices for the company to refer to, they said, “The first episode have to invite artistes of kings and queens level, and in Taiwan the diva who has the standing would definitely be Ah Mei.” Ah Mei also has righteousness, not only did she agree to accept S.H.E’s interview, she also prepared bracelets, necklace and earrings as presents. Ah Mei smiled and said, “When I first heard that S.H.E was going to interview me I thought it was for a television program, unexpectedly it’s actually for radio.” S.H.E who usually has a lot to talk about becomes a DJ for the first time. They were so anxious that they kept staring at their scripts and while talking they even screwed up sometimes, Ah Mei couldn’t help smiling secretly when she saw this.Ah Mei who is recently leaving a secretive life, goes for recording everyday, play with dogs and her niece, isolated until her friends wonder if she had vanished into thin air, her manager also feel that she seems to be suffering from autism; hence Ah Mei told S.H.E, “Didn’t accept interviews for so long, the first time is given to you girls.” S.H.E also shouted to fans that miss Ah Mei, “She didn’t disappear! Now she is at our FM S.H.E’s program.”S.H.E who loves to go KTV to sing said, Ah Mei’s songs are always on their list, “Selina even got 92 marks for imitating Ah Mei’s singing and voice change.” Ah Mei on the other hand said she seldom goes to KTV, Ella smiled when she heard this, “Who dare to sing after you started?” However Ah Mei also revealed that once she went to KTV with Jiang Hui and they had a great time, they even sang each other’s song; after hearing it S.H.E said enviously, “Those people present are very lucky! Hearing two divas singing is a pleasure.” However they also asked Ah Mei curiously, “Then did second sister sing your Bad Boy?”Selina who viewed Ah Mei as her idol of course did not let the chance of singing with her slip by when she saw her idol’s arrival. In order to help their good sister fulfil her wish Ella and Hebe hoped that Ah Mei can sing a part of Jiang Hui’s ‘Jia Hou’ with Selina after the KTV question. The generously Ah Mei immediately opened her vocal; Selina also followed happily and fulfilled her wish.Ah Mei and S.H.E are dog lovers; they can’t stop when they started talking about dogs. Ah Mei has two Golden Retriever at home, two Toy Poodle, she even shocked everyone by saying, “The eldest ‘Master Zhang’ recently came out of the closet!” S.H.E got a shock after hearing it, Ah Mei explained, “Among the four dogs, I dote on Master Zhang the most, it has single eyelid, although it’s a boy but its actions and eating style is like a lady, its character is also very gentle, I feel that it should be gay.” S.H.E laughed and said, “So it’s your dog son who came out of the closet.”Ah Mei who is currently preparing for her Japan concert also shared her most frightening singing experience. She remembered that there was once she had an outdoor concert which involve ticket sales at Guangzhou on the eve of typhoon, the weather condition was very bad, “Not only did it rained heavily with thunder, the wind was also so strong that the scene beside the stage had to be taken down. While singing halfway, the instruments one by one had no sound because of electricity trip, the only sound left was my microphone, and hence all the musicians and harmonizers stood in front of the stage and clapped their hands for rhythm. After singing three songs without music I asked everyone to go home quickly to avoid danger.”The one hour interview ended very quickly, S.H.E and Ah Mei had a great time chatting, Selina even invited Ah Mei generously out for singing, however because Ah Mei had to practice for the concert, she had to reject S.H.E’s offer, she can only tell them with regrets, “Next time you girls want to go KTV have to look for me!”
