G.E.M. Tang voted most-hated celebrity second year in a row
FEMALE pop singer G.E.M. Tang has been voted as the most-hated celebrity for the second year in a row by netizens in Hong Kong.
Sin Chew Daily reported that the 25-year-old artiste had been criticised for her “terrible fashion taste”.
They also felt that it was premature of her to shoot a biographical film at her age.
In an online poll conducted by Hong Kong-based King Jer Entertainment, Tang received 15,297 votes. Female singer and TVB actress Jinny Ng, 24, who became pregnant before marriage, was placed second with 9,640 votes.
In third place for a second year in a row is comedy director Wong Jing, well-known for directing movies such as the God of Gamblers and From Vegas to Macau which starred Chow Yun-Fat.
Wong received 9,177 votes from netizens who were critical of his films.
Others placed in the top 10 included actress and former Miss Hong Kong Grace Chan for her poor acting skills and TVB actor Wong Cho-lam and singer William Choo for their pro-mainland China sentiments.

HK pop star G.E.M speaks about on her line-dancing auntie fans, plans for active ageing http://bit.ly/1S5LYu0
INGAPORE — With her popularity exploding in the past year, young Hong Kong pop star G.E.M. has legions of fans all over the world. But the ones who amuse her the most are her “auntie” fans. After all, we must assume anyone would be thrilled to see a posse of aunties line-dancing to their songs.
When she started out at the age of 16, she said the people she was influencing were young fans or students. “And I’ve always hoped to be able to give them positive energy through my music. Now that I’ve grown up a bit, my fan base has widened; 40- and 50-year-old aunties listen to my music, too,” she said.
Known as the “Chinese Taylor Swift” for her catchy tunes and penchant for writing breakup songs, the 24-year-old singer-songwriter shot to fame after her stint in last year’s Chinese reality singing competition show I Am A Singer, which pits established singers against each other. G.E.M. stands for Get Everybody Moving; her real name is Gloria Tang.
So, are her auntie fans especially rabid? “They are very enthusiastic,” she said with a chuckle. “Sometimes I run into them — at the airport, for example — and they go, ‘Oh, are you G.E.M.? Come take a photo with me! I sing your songs every time I go to the KTV’. I’ve also seen them line-dancing in a public square to my cover of I Like You.”
She finds their demonstrativeness “cute”, she said, laughing. “Young people can be quite shy, actually. When you’re young, you have a bit of ‘idol baggage’ (an expression referring to the excessive self-consciousness usually displayed by celebrities). Idol baggage isn’t just limited to idols, you know — everyone has it. But aunties — they really don’t care!”

G.E.M. posted a video of her, playing table tennis with her manager using her iPhone. She wrote, “Just sharing my leisure activity during filming. Steve Jobs was remarkable. Without him, we won’t have such a good table tennis paddle!”
While it was meant to be light-hearted, many netizens have blasted G.E.M. for being showy and flaunting her wealth.
One netizen said, “So what if you have money? A mobile phone is meant to make phone calls, and not to use it as a paddle. Steve Jobs will cry if he sees this”
Another said, “You are just flaunting your wealth!”
Things went from bad to worse when angry fans started to throw water bottles at the signage holders, prompting the guards to come in and separate them from each other. It was reported that GEM’s agency had refused to let the singer performed at the event three days prior to the incident. http://thehivezceleb.blogspot.com/2015/04/a-fan-war-broke-out-at-gem-tangs.html ..

Her fans were angry and threw water bottles at the viewers with the signage. The security guards immediately came in and separated the two camps of viewers, which in turn, prevented the clash from escalating.

Good night!” Although no name was pointed, many have speculated that it was G.E.M. as she has been criticised several times for her diva behaviour. … G.E.M. also responded and apologised to the show director. She said on Weibo that she has been grateful to ‘I am A Singer’ for giving her a platform to showcase her singing ability. However, she also said that she hoped to give her 100 percent in every performance to repay her audience. “If it is due to fear of public opinion and fear of being misunderstood, that I hastily swopped another song and sacrificed the quality of my performance, I will be sorry to the stage and my audience.” “I can’t get through this. I don’t want to give a perfunctory performance and let my audience down. I’m sorry to disappoint everyone. I’m grateful for the opportunity and hope to work hard to repay everyone with my music.” Taiwanese singer, A-Lin will replace G.E.M. in the show. http://www.lollipop.sg/content/gem-tang-drops-out-singing-competition-because-she-refuses-do#xtor=CS2-4 — G.E.M.

GEM Tang apologises for prolonged event

29 Dec – Hong Kong singer GEM Tang recently clarified that she was clueless of the fact that her delayed arrival at the Metro Radio Music Hits Awards and its post-party has caused inconvenience to the production crew as well as other artistes.
According to Sina News, due to the absence of other popular stars, Joey Yung and Eason Chan, the Metro Radio Music Hits Awards prolonged the ceremony until midnight to await GEM’s arrival from her performance in Macau so that she could personally receive her four awards – resulting in the show ending at 12.30 am instead of the original schedule. The organisers also delayed the post-party and waited for GEM to take photos and give out Christmas cookies to her fans. Members of the media had to wait nearly an hour for the singer before the celebration began. When asked about the delay, GEM apologised and said, “I accepted the Macau show much earlier, but I tried my best to rush back to Hong Kong. I arrived before the ceremony ended.” https://sg.entertainment.yahoo.com/news/gem-tang-apologises-prolonged-event-060500035.html — No. 4 in Hong Kong’s most Googled celebrities! 4 – G.E.M.

Hong Kong singer and songwriter Gem Tang, otherwise known as G.E.M., is scheduled to perform in Singapore in Jan 31, 2015 as announced by her concert organizers last Wednesday. Reports said the young singer-songwriter is going to perform in Singapore next year on January 31 as a part of her concert tour entitled G.E.M. X.X.X Live World Tour, which marks her second solo concert tour. Based on the 23-year old singer’s camp, ‘X.X.X.’ in the title of her second solo concert means ‘more to eXpose, more to eXpect and more eXciting’, just some of the things that they aim to show during her shows which follows her concert tour last year that went with the same title. http://www.chinatopix.com/articles/19868/20141030/gem-tang-to-perform-in-singapore-on-january-31-2015.htm —

22 Sep – Hong Kong Cantopop star GEM Tang admitted that she still does not understand the fuss over previous photos she took inside her car.
Earlier, the singer was blasted twice online for posting a photo of herself on the wheel; once during a red light stop, and the second, which was taken a couple of weeks later, of herself in the driver’s seat. She was criticised for being reckless and endangering others for using a phone while driving. However, as reported on Mingpao News, while speaking to the media at a music gala on 21 September, GEM admitted that she still does not understand all the commotion triggered from the photos. “What is the problem? I had my seat belt buckled on and the car was not moving,” she said. GEM also stressed that she had even asked permission from her driving instructor before taking the picture. In regard to a second photo she took recently, GEM stressed that she has parked her car before doing so. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/gem-tang-clarifies-driving-photo-controversy-063700101.html —

‘I AM INNOCENT’ – topless pics of fast-rising HK singer appear online
It has been a steamy week for Hong Kong entertainment. One day after Sire Ma’s (馬賽) lingerie video was leaked online, a series of sexy photos featuring a young woman who resembles G.E.M. (鄧紫棋) surfaced on the web. The woman in the pictures had flirtatious eyes and was crouching in a compromising position. She appeared to be topless. Fortunately for G.E.M., her fans quickly caught onto the photos and were able to prove that the woman in the scandalous photos was not the 22-year-old star. Although the woman seems to resemble G.E.M. at first glance, sharp-eyed fans pointed out that the woman and G.E.M. have different jawlines. G.E.M. was born with an uneven jaw, with the left side of her jawbone being slightly smaller than her right. Therefore, G.E.M. is unable to bite down on her teeth in the same manner as those with even jaws. However, the woman in the photos was biting down on her teeth perfectly. Some fans claimed that the scandalous rumors were started by fans of popular Korean-Chinese boy band EXO and Chinese footballer Li Yi (李毅). Because there is an intense fan war online between these stars, some of the fans decided to upload fake photos of G.E.M. to disperse attention. Questionable photos of Li Xiaolu (李小璐), Pakho Chau (周柏豪), and King Kong (金剛), and other fake nude photos were also circulated online. In addition to this scandal, there are also rumors of G.E.M. cohabiting with Korean actor Kim Soo Hyun (金秀賢), as well as being the third party in Zhang Jie’s (張杰) marriage.
