C-entertainment (Mainland, Taiwan, and Hong Kong) went on a blitzkrieg yesterday with the dating news dump and November 13th is being called Red Wednesday. Either it was the case of the most surreptitious coordinating in the history of entertainment news or else the biggest coincidence ever. In addition to Nicky Wu and Liu Shi Shi dating, Yang Mi and Hawick Lau getting married, and Mark Chao maybe knocking up Gao Yuan Yuan, a few more relationship updates to shove into this post first – mega movie star Chang Chen (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) is marrying his girlfriend of four years on Monday, period drama actor Qiao Zheng Yu revealed he’s dating a fellow actress and contemplating marriage, and 10th Prince Ye Zhu Xin and the fabulous Jiang Xin officially confirmed their long-rumored relationship. Trust me when I say a recitation of all the recent good couple news makes sense in the context of a post about the lovely songstress Hebe Tian‘s upcoming third solo album. Hebe has been busy with S.H.E. group activities all year but it makes sense for her to keep striking while the iron is hot and following up last year’s S.H.E. album with another solo effort.
I consider Hebe the best singer in S.H.E. and currently the only member still single. With Red Wednesday happen to coincide with breaking Apple Daily news reports that Hebe has been seen house hunting with her ex-girlfriend, there has been a groundswell of fan support for Hebe to come out of the closet and confirm her relationship. Hebe being a lesbian is really the most open “secret” in Taiwan entertainment, and even her official fangroup knows it and supports her vocally. She was reportedly dating fellow songstress A Mei‘s personal assistant for years, photographed cuddling on the street and in couple haircut and tees. But that relationship was said to have ended early last year, and shortly Hebe started dating her former assistant at HIM Records who was transferred to another group. They were snapped spending the time together and even taking long walks by the park. Like I said, Hebe’s not exactly trying to hide anything. The big news now is whether she has in fact gotten back together with her ex-girlfriend and is planning to settle down. Whatever Hebe wants is cool with me as long as she keeps being an awesome singer and gorgeous spokesmodel for whatever endorsement deal she’s doing. Girl is talent and looks wrapped into one. Her latest album with lead single “Insignificant” dropped today so check it out. Hebe went to Iceland to film the MV and the album jacket and she is absolutely stunning.
The top three pictures are of Hebe with her former assistant and most recent girlfriend. The bottom picture is of Hebe from 2007 with her ex-girlfriend who is A Mei’s assistant, and who Hebe is rumored to have gotten back together with.
Hebe holds the distinction of being the only solo female Chinese language singer to have her official song MV break 10 million views on Youtube, and she has that for two of her singles.
Official MV for “Insignificant”:
So happy for her! 🙂
I loved her in Bull Fighting, and since then have noticed that the loveliest voice I hear in SHE songs was hers.
Hope she’ll have a happy relationship (as is my hope for all the other couples out there).
Never knew she is a lesbian. 🙂
Complete surprise to me as well. Good for her and wish her all the happiness in the world.
No wonder she doesn’t have any rumour or scandal with guy artists.
The song is stunning. I wish she finds happiness and settles down too <3
If the rumour is true, I’m so happy for her. Everyone deserves happiness. I’m glad she’s not hiding her sexual orientation either. I’ve never heard of any other LGBT actor/artist from Taiwan. I don’t really know how it is in that country, but I’m hoping there’s no stigma with it, unlike so many other countries.
eww a lesbian ! if you are u might as well pick a cute girlfriend
this is not shocking ! any tthig after charice being lesbian is not shocking !!
what the heck is “eww a lesbian!”?
go away, you homophone.
Eww a homophobe!
i love Hebe and SHE. I hope they hold another concert and maybe cross the pacific and have one here! Unni, l would so go to the concert if they come, will you go with me?! ^___^
I love how she doesn’t hide her relationships. Support Hebe all the way!
I know Hebe is the strongest singer in SHE but for reason I can’t stand her voice in solos;it’s just not my cup of tea, but I love their medley together!
Awww and JJ Lin likes her too, he has zero chance now lol
I know. His confession at his concert was so cute, too. I am sure half of it was for the show, but his shyness peeking through made it pretty raw.
Wow…JJ Lin likes Hebe. That’s cool. I’m sure there are always lots af guys after her and I think she is just hasn’t met the right guy yet. She is still young, she likes a girl now that doesn’t mean she will not like a guy in the future. It’s all about faith and destiny. No matter who she choose, I wish her all the happiness in the world.
Aw they’re cute together!
I’m rooting for all the couples! 😀
What’s with all the revealing of romance all of a sudden? It’s as if they planned it so none of them stick out so much.
Apparently according to cfensi, Wang LuoDan from the virtuous queen of Han also got engaged. Woah.
11/11 is china’s single’s day. a lot of people get hitched or start dating. it’s kinda like valentines day
Wow. I didn’t know she’s a lesbian.
Wow, I didn’t know about this at all! But I’m a bit confused here, does it mean she already broke up with her current girlfriend to get together (and married) with her ex? ?_?
In any case, she’s a fabulous singer who has a knack of getting me to like songs I wouldn’t usually like. Like this song, which has interesting lyrics :)Like her outfit and the beautiful scenery of Iceland 🙂
i really do like her as an singer.. so this is like a shocking news that she’s a lesbian.. since i’m straight and i like to ship her with mike he.. but then.. as a fan.. all i have to say is ‘congratz for finding your own color and love.. be happy’
Whoah What? She’s a lesbian? I thought my favorite Ella was a closet lesbian till she got hitched. None the less Hebe is the prettiest of SHE. I always thought she gives out this modern chic royalty aura. I’m so happy for her. I will be rooting for her happiness.
