Emperor yesterday invited 14 of its idol artists Nicholas Tse Ting Fung, Eason Chan Yik Kun, Dave Wang Kit, Joey Yung Cho Yi, Twins, Boy'z, 3T, Ng Ho Hong, Isabella, Koey and others to the EEG Showroon opening ceremony.

Nicholas danced with the lion dancers and ate lettuce out of the lion's mouth for good luck, then insisted on sharing with Eason and Wang Kit. Joey and Twins pretended to eat it as well.

Kelly will be releasing her Cantonese album together with her earlier Mandarin album and she had specially traveled to Spain to take pictures for the album. Her most memorable experience was to dress up in bull-fighter gear. As Kelly does not know anything about bull-fighting, the director managed to get a bull-fighter to coach her skills and poses. The coach had kept praising Kelly to be pretty and Kelly had initially thought that what he had was only a courteous remark. Unexpectedly, he even expressed his love for her and wanted Kelly to be her girlfriend. Kelly was frightened by his remarks and was at a loss. She had to walk away smiling pretending that she did not hear him. She did not expect men from Spain to be so express their love so openly.

For the photo shoot, Kelly had donned tailored bull-fighting gear that weigh about 10 pounds. She also had to continuously flag a 20 pound red cloth under the guidance of the director. Although it was tiring for Kelly, she felt that it was worth her efforts as the effect was good. Kelly's only regret was that she was unable to take a picture with a real bull. This was because, once a bull was released for fighting, it had to be slaughtered later to prevent it from endangering people.

 The Worldwide Chinese New Talent Singing Contest was held for the Hong Kong Region and all three top prizes went to 17-year old Chan Wai Ting, taking the "Best Performance", "Best Individual Talent" and "Golden Mic award". The other award for "Audience Popularity" went to Yeung Chun Yin. A group of EEG's stars including Nic Tse, Twins, Boyz and Joey Yeung all made appearances as guest stars.

Nicholas Tse sung "Yuk Wu Deep" (Jade Butterfly) with all the contestants and says that he did rehearse it with them earlier. When asked if he felt any pressure, he said: "No, after all it is my song, but their standards are getting better with every year." Earlier after watching the match Real Madrid played against the Hong Kong team, he appeared at Stephen Fung's birthday party, he says that he couldn't sleep that evening, so he watched Jet Li's "Tai Chi Zhang San Feng" and then started doing Tai Chi and mentioning that he likes the Tai Chi symbol a lot. He said: "It is because it is black and white, clearly different, but the white entails the black and the black leads to the white, so from darkness comes light." However, when it was mentioned about his date with Cecilia Cheung to go and see the football match, he immediately picked up his buddhist beads and started chanting. Nic's girlfriend Faye Wong's birthday was the 8th August, but he has been in Hong Kong for the last few days and not spent the time with his Faye in Shanghai for her birthday, however he refused to comment on these questions. When asked further whether Faye would be angry with him spending all this time with Anita Mui, he explained: "I have had work, appearing at the comics expo and preparing for my concert then opening a showroom on Monday."

Kelly was back from Taiwan to attend the release of the "Pet Fish" commemorative stamp held yesterday. She was again questioned by the HK media on the . Kelly replied that her brother has already made an apology to his girlfriend and this incident will serve as a lesson to him. Kelly also laughed that she has made pleas to him not to go to the racecourse area as the place is packed with the paparazzi. On the last occasion, Victor had a meal with his father in the area and were pictured and this time, something worse happened. Young couples having a tiff is common but showing that in public is unsightly.

Kelly further supported that Victor's girlfriend is a good girl but both Victor and her are too young to handle relationship problems well. Kelly also gave her experience that when she and Alex had a quarrel, they would not talk to each other for 3 days. However, being together for 10 years, such tiffs are less common now. Kelly had once threw a photo frame with her boyfriend's picture and ended up having to clear the glass pieces herself. Kelly felt that there was no reason for her to reprimand Victor any further as he was already remorseful for his actions. As his elder sister, she can only help him to handle the press.

Due to the earlier SARS outbreak, Kelly's Mandarin album had to be delayed for 4 months and was finally released recently. To specially thank her fans, Kelly had made greater effort in the recording process and for one of the songs "Gentle Tears", she had spent 5 days to complete which is a record for her.

For the music video of "All I Want Is Love", she had invited Korean star, Park Yong Ha, to starr in it and had also recorded the song in 5 different languages. Working with Park, Kelly has found that he is a humorous person. In return, Kelly has obliged to appear in the music video for Park Yong Ha's new song.

Kelly had also recently been to Taiwan for the promotion of the album and many of her wears for the events were sponsored. From reliable sources, besides her daily wears, Kelly has even got sponsorship for her car and petrol. No wonder she has earned the title of the "Thrifty Pop Queen".

Kelly, who was in Taiwan promoting her album, immediately phoned him to understand the situation. Kelly mentioned that Victor sounded lowly and had admitted that he was on the wrong. He had later apologised to both his sister and ex-girlfriend. Kelly added that his brother is well-behaved and should not have done such a foolish thing. As to whether Victor had patched up with his ex-girlfriend, Kelly did not dare to ask more because he was feeling low. She would find out more details after her brother's feelings are more stabilised.

She was dressed in a sexy low cut top with floral skirt and had attracted the reporters to take more photographs. A small fish tank was even accidentally pushed down during the confusion and had given Kelly a shock. She had later warned everyone to be careful.

Another singer who had released a new album in the same period was Jay Chou. Most singers had chose to avoid a head-on clash except for Kelly. Kelly was asked if she felt pressured? Her reply was that both of them belong to different categories and was not worried about being compared with him. Furthermore, both of them have their own supporters and she is confident on her album sales.

Accompanied with Jay's album is a VCD while Kelly's has a karaoke VCD with her past Mandarin hits.

Most scenes will be filmed in London. It will be the first time Edison works with a mainland china director and stars in a mainland china movie. Edison can relate to the novel due to his own experience living overseas in Vancouver. Edison was chosen as the male lead due to his experience, acting in Internal Affairs, his fluent english and young good looks. These were the reason for him being chosen by the director, author and author's mother.The female lead is yet to be chosen but they are looking for a 16 year old chinese looking and doll faced female who is also fluent in English.

Edison's best friend is his dog called Angel and he's had dogs since he was little. He syas alot of people in the entertainment business are fakes which is why he has only about 3-4 friends in that business.

There were recent rumors that TVB will enforce stricter contract rules on singers so that they do not receive interviews from other television stations especially from Cable Television. All along, the singer's contract with TVB had specified that the singer was not allowed to appear on other programmes other than that by TVB. As there were loopholes in the contract, there were chances that singers had unexpectedly received interviews from other stations. The problem gets acute and TVB has decided to make a stop to this.

Kelly was supportive of this and when she found that one of the reporters who tried to conduct an interview with her was from Asia Television, she politely declined. Kelly had later expressed that sometimes it was very confusing as there was little time for her to look carefully at every tag attached to the microphone before an interview. Has she received any interviews from Cable Television? She could not remember because every reporter had always requested for a short interview. Kelly suggested that TVB should give singers more chances for TV appearances by increasing music programmes for playing new songs.

During yesterday's PCCW roadshow, the company had donated $150 000 to Kelly's Children Education Fund. Kelly laughed that even if she was not paid for the event she would attend it as long as the sponsor was willing to make donations to the fund. Kelly mentioned that after the SARS outbreak, many people had requested to be sponsored by her charity fund and the money in the fund is fast depleting. As such, she has to work even harder.

Kelly and Andy Hui were at Metro Radio station to promote their new radio drama. In the story, Andy Hui and Kelly are a pair of lovers and during the press conference they were arranged to carry a baby doll. Kelly had shown that she was trained well to handle a real baby.

Kelly was later asked if she has planned to be a mother. Her reply was that she will only give birth at the age of 40 and she does not feel that age is too old. As to whether her boyfriend agrees with her, Kelly said that this was her own thinking and has yet to discuss this with him. She would want to enjoy being in their own world after marriage and have children at a later time. What happens if she accidentally gets pregnant? Kelly claimed that she is always certain in her way of doing things and such things will definitely not happen.

Even though Kelly has a liking of children, she fears the pain while delivering the baby. From her friends, she got to know that the process was painful. She even joked that she would rather get the doctor to cut open her stomach and extract the baby rather than to deliver it. Her ideal number of children to have is two; a male and a female. However, she may drop her idea if the process is too terrible. 

Kelly described that her boyfriend, Alex, is a traditional man and greatly wishes to be a father. Her only reply to him is that she is very busy and would not be able to help him. She added that Alex appears concerned about this but has yet to force her to get married. Alex's mother did asked Kelly on marriage matters but she would always smile and not reply to change the topic.

Kelly had earlier done an interview for Metro Radio and she had talked about her views on career and love. Kelly has high expectations on herself and when she is on stage, she will feel that the stage belongs to her. Furthermore, she does not allow herself to be seen badly on stage. She would rather hear the audience criticise her for being untalented rather than being lazy. Kelly had also expressed that she longed to receive a Hardworking Award. As for love, she had mentioned that she is not as strong as her appearance and she will choose to be looked after. To her, girls are most happy when they are cared. However, she is unwilling to receive promises from men that they will take care of her for the rest of her life. Women will need to be independent.

Kelly was earlier in Korea to film two music videos, All I Want Is Love and It's All My Fault, for her new Mandarin album. Kelly had also specially invited Korean star, Park Yong Ha, to starr in the videos. This was not the first time that they had worked together as they had previously done an ad for an electrical appliance. Although, Kelly was not versatile in Korean and had to depend on a translator to convey her message, both of them managed to get along well. Park had acted as the local guide and brought her to the night market and enjoy the local delicacies.

Taiwan media had even described the two of them as a perfect pair. The music video for All I Want Is Love described the female lead longing for true love but unable to get certained love in return. Under the request of the video director, Kelly had to shed tears in three seconds for the opening scene. This was not difficult for Kelly but this brought on amazement by her partner. Park had later asked why she could shed tears so easily and wanted to know if she was troubled by other matters. Kelly explained that the weather was hot and had wanted to finish the work quickly. Park did not have a good time filming the video too. He was required to run under the hot weather and in order to have a better take, the scene was taken more than 10 times.

As to the new ruling made by RTHK on new songs being plugged on its radio stations, Kelly made a joke that the record companies' stuff will have less to do in the future and she is interested to change roles with them. Kelly added that she is not  that the new ruling will affect her because every singer gets the same treatment. There were rumors that Chan Siu Po will resign from the position of IFPI Association Chairman after the investigations.

Kelly had recalled that she had always planned her summer vacation well with enriching activities. She had taken on several temporary jobs before finally going to an ad agency where she embarked on her career in the entertainment scene. 

Kelly had also warned teenagers to be careful when looking for jobs. They should not fall for auditions that require pre-payments as well as taking sexy pictures. As to how she spent her money that was earned in the vacation job, Kelly's reply was that the working experience gained outweighed the earnings. Most of her pay was spent on beautifying herself and food.

Nicholas Tse Ting Fung yesterday attended an autograph session at the West Kowloon Center. As soon as he walked into a toy store he bought a puppy doll and tried his to free it from its leash. "A few years ago I visited a 8 year old girl with terminal cancer. At the time her family and doctor all knew she was 'gone'. Her wish was to meet me and (Miriam) Yeung Chin Wa. That day the little girl was already very sick. This puppy was hanging near her bed, but it was a little bigger. At the time I picked up the puppy and removed its leash. I told her, 'Think positively about everything, don't let the leash hold you back anymore. Without the leash you are freed. When you get better I will take you out.' At the time I took the leash off in three seconds, but two weeks later she was gone."

 
During yesterday's press conference held at Universal Music regional office, an announcement was made that Rock Records will have their albums distributed by Universal Music in the Asia region. Kelly and Emil Chow were invited to represent Go East and Rock Records respectively to witness the event.

On the co-operation between the two record companies, Kelly said that it is a hard time for the record companies and through this merger, there will be more chances for her to work with different singers in the future. There are current plans for Kelly to work with both Emil Chow and Richie Ren. As for other singers, she will need to see if there are any arrangements made by the record company. Most important is that the co-operation is carried out in harmony.

Kelly had also expressed that her current album earnings was far below that compared to 1997. It was fortunate that her concert could be added from 3 shows to 12 so as to maintain her earnings. Kelly suggested that the HK music industry could follow what the Westerners are doing, that is, make mp3 downloads legal and charge a fee for each download. The record companies can also save on album pictures as well as music video production.

Miriam, Ronald Cheng, Edmund Leung and Denise Ho filmed the Budweiser beer ad together yesterday. however, Miriam seemed as if she didn't want the rumors (between her and Ronald) to be the centre of attention. she looked rather uncomfortable standing next to Ronald during the photo taking of the crew. after that, the reporters asked for a photo of the two, Miriam finally moved next to Ronald with uncertainty but Miriam's reaction during the shot was still embarrassed and she was often looking away.
 
when talked about their (Miriam and Ronald) first ad together and the duet-themesong «red and hot as fire», Miriam agreed but she often drifted away to other topics saying that they've being working together long ago. ( Are you guys partering to earn money?)Miriam just replied she would of course be happy to earn money but the happiest should be her managing company. (how about just you two filming an ad alone?) she said it all depends on the product but it would be a no for products with the concept of lovers... on the other hand, Ronald said he would film any ads because he wanted to buy a new apartment. (would u leave a room for Miriam?) he joked, ' if that happens, he would still charge her rent. the reason why i move out is that i always return home late making a fuss and bothering my family.'
 
Ronald injured his left thumb during the shot of his new film. therefore he had to wear protective gloves to work.Ronald also revealed that Miriam was concerned about that but he said to her that he got injured from playing bowling instead.
so the reporters reminded him about his promise not to lie, he quickly added that it was only a joke. he did later tell her the truth. it seems like Miriam was keeping a distance from Ronald in front of people but personally they are very considerate and caring for each other.

 Twins are not so alike

MAYBE they should drop their Twins name.Two years after the duo entered showbiz in 2001, many people still think Hong Kong's reigning pop princesses are twins.Even today, some people still cannot tell Gillian Chung apart from Charlene Choi. People used to mistake them for sisters when the duo started out after being spotted in a talent competition.'Yesterday, the photographer looked at me and called me Charlene. I told him he made a mistake.'The next minute, he looked at me quizzically again and went Gillian? Charlene?' Chung recounts with a laugh about a photo shoot.

At the interview with Life! at Conrad Centennial Hotel on Sunday morning, she is wearing an off-the-shoulder red top, looking more mature than Choi in a casual blue tank top.

Popularly known as Ah Gill, the 22-year-old Chung has sharper facial features and a higher-pitched voice compared to 20-year-old Choi, or Ah Sa, who has bigger eyes and sounds more ditzy. The latter is effortlessly chirpy and even entertaining, like when she cans the idea of the two of them going shopping together, for fear of proceedings running wild and out of control, like 'a zoo'.In comparison, Chung appears less comfortable in the spotlight.But both go blank when asked how they resemble each other. Their minder cuts in expertly, saying that both work really hard, prompting a burst of girlish laughter. However, the girls have no problems describing how they are different.

Chung says of her partner: 'She's very funny and always makes people laugh. She's also sociable and likes to organise group activities.'

Choi's view is that Chung 'is the type who needs time to warm up to people. People always mistake it for arrogance'.

Chung lets on that the Hong Kong press are upset with her refusal to smile for their cameras.The prettier Twin, who reportedly counts Jackie Chan among her admirers, says with a sense of resignation: 'Whether I smile or not, they will still write bad things about me.'But Choi's smiles and chatty ways have drawn flak too. The sunshine girl has been said to be trying to draw more attention by being more talkative than Chung.The latter is quick to defend her friend though: 'It's to do with our characters. It's not her fault, but is my problem. I tend to speak less so, in comparison, she's just got a lot more to say.'

They are obviously comfortable with each other. Throughout the interview, they often finish each other's sentences.

They deny recent reports that the Twins are disbanding.

Chung attributes the speculation to their preference for different roles. She likes action pictures, Choi goes for romantic comedies.'The more they write about how we are not getting along and thinking of splitting, the closer we become,' Choi says defiantly. Ho Ai Li

But I'm still young now.I want to focus more on earning money so that when I do have a child,I won't have to face any financial problems. Playing the role does not have any challenges though because since I was young,I've always been taking care of my brothers."

However,looking from her eyes,reporters noted that today,Ceci dosen't seem like the usual carefree her.She seems to have alot going on in her mind.

Moving away from the topic of Nicholas,reporters wanted to know which type of rumors does she dislike the most,considering she's had so many different types of them flowing around her.

14 June-Louis likes to drive

Louis Koo Tin Lik at a radio interview says that he likes buying cars but does not enjoy driving them.

Sony's new "Rise to Honor" exclusive game franchise was built around Jet Li at the international film star's instigation. In addition to providing voice work and motion-capture action for the game, Li worked on the game's story. The game features more than 3,000 moves that Li's friend, Hollywood fight choreographer Cory Yuen ("The One," "Kiss of the Dragon"), captured with the star in Sony's studio. In the game, Li plays bodyguard Kit Yun, who leaves Hong Kong for San Francisco in search of the kidnapped daughter of the man he was paid to protect.

"This game gives the player full freedom to perform the types of outlandish stunts that Jet Li does routinely in his movies," says Jim Wallace, the producer of the game at Sony Computer Entertainment America. "With the help of Jet Li, now anyone can experience the thrills of a Hong Kong action movie firsthand."

Michelle Yeoh and Chow Yun-Fat, who starred together in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, will team up again for a new Chinese historical epic, Hua Mulan, which goes into production Aug. 22 in China.

The $30 million Chinese-language film tells the story of legendary female Chinese Gen. Hua Mulan (Yeoh), who pretends to be a man and joins the army in replacement for her aged father. Chow is slated for the role of Gen. Li, who recognizes Mulan's talent on the battlefield and boosts her up the ranks but later finds himself falling for her feminine side.

The Hollywood Reporter says the film will be directed by Peter Pau, the Oscar-winning cinematographer of "Crouching Tiger" who helmed Yeoh's 2001 film The Touch. Wang Huiling, from mainland China, who penned the "Crouching Tiger" script, is writing the script.

The shoot takes place in seven major locations in China, including Qinghai, Chejiang and Beijing. It also will include a major battle scene -- a re-enactment of a battle between the Han Chinese and the invading Turks -- featuring more than 1,000 extras and 300 horses.
