楊丞琳 (Rainie Yang) — 天使之翼 (Angel Wings)

Such a beautiful way to convey the message that love is simply love, regardless of orientation and opposition, and that we all suffer and struggle for the sake of being with that one person.

Jolin Tsai Successfully Pulls Off Complex Pole Dance Routine

Jolin Tsai fulfilled her wish by successfully completing a complex ‘spinning pole dance’ on 4-metre high steel pole at her Kaohsiung concert last Saturday.

The Taiwanese singer was initially set to perform the dance at her Taipei show last year, but was forced to cancel that segment after she fell off the pole and sustained injuries during her practice.

Dressed in a white corset, Jolin showed off her dance moves throughout the 170-second single and double pole dance performance inviting continuous cheers and applause from the audience. The bruises left behind from her injury were clearly visible on her legs.

According to the Taiwanese media, Jolin’s ‘2013 Myself World Tour’ in Kaohsiung marks her first concert performance in the Taiwanese city. In order to thank Kaohsiung fans for their support, Jolin even prepared three Taiwanese songs by the queen of Taiwanese dance music Chen Xiao Yun, specially chosen by her mother.

The 32-year-old put in a great deal of effort in practicing the songs and perfecting her pronunciation. Her manager explained, ‘Jolin’s mum even personally corrected Jolin’s pronunciation because Jolin wasn’t good at the Taiwanese language.’

After exhausting herself with the singing and dancing, Jolin said, ‘I have to eat all the delicious street snacks such as sweet potato balls, hot plate beef and milk tea to recharge myself.’
