 2010’s most anticipated concert
Just prior to filming, and Faye Wong in a store waiting to check such a long time. One friend jokingly said: “The Europeans can only do one thing a time.” Side of the Faye Wong take it lightly said: “In fact I was so.” Indeed. As the preparations for her comeback concert, we only focus on this work, there is no plans for a new album, but do not consider the filming of the film. The public more to worry about than her, for her work in each of the various possibilities are listed. Faye Wong has just concentrate on the concert well, not the other. And small to music and song rhythms, large arena style positioning, you can think of bits and pieces on the concert she would care to participate. The concert is not a guest, as she said: “I do not fancy, do not miss the chance, just simply an innocent, sing my songs, using music to express themselves, even if also the less.” Held in five consecutive games of “Faye Wong 2010 tour to sing” to Faye Wong not only became the first major sports venues in the Mainland with three more opening concert of the singer, will also refresh the record of Beijing concert market, the Hong Kong fans want to be the only person involved in have moved ships on Hom. Q Faye Wong will also introduce Guangdong album? She thought for a moment and said: “album should be difficult to some, the track is more likely.”
 Reclusive singer has not retreat charity
Faye Wong fans had a chance to hear new songs, does not mean she has away from the studio. Yan Ran charity dinner last year, every scene guests have received a fine CD, which is only three songs – “Yan Ran Angel Fund,” the theme song of “smiling angel”, and “Diamond Sutra” and the “Heart Sutra”, is sung by Faye Wong. Feng later heard “Heart Sutra”, very much hope for “Tangshan earthquake” Pianwei Qu, Buddhist devotees Faye Wong think this is a good thing, it provided free of charge.
“Smiling angel”, “Diamond Sutra” and “Heart Sutra”, the three representatives of the Faye Wong song also seems to present-day attitude to life. “Heart Sutra” is a compassionate soothing, said that was so positive for the “Great Tangshan Earthquake” busy mind startled to hear the beleaguered Feng, always felt the movie “short of something”, he finally found a person to calm bright credits. The “smiling angel”, the daughter of Faye Wong is written, and anticipated his own shadow. For her, life if perfusion in some special significance, as long as the good, not too long.
 Philippine life intangible
Shooting in the afternoon, Faye Wong getting a little tired, not because the photographers are not used to meet the requirements of a long time, but because of time difference. “Children must be together at home every day and keep good hours, so jet lag a bit sad.” She said quietly. So like the night before, she became the mother accompanied her daughter a day after nine on the sleep of the morning, patterns of life was enviable.
Faye Wong is still living in very “boom”, like trying the latest electronics products, will use the iPhone and the Internet. Online rumors a micro-Bo is her account, only a simple English name, no identity description and explanation, but those humorous animal pictures, quiet, scenery photos, so to uphold the calm, do not rub the dust, is also very consistent with her personality. Faye Wong also like online shopping, when she arrived filming orange jumpsuit wearing shorts Patching lace is her shopping in the U.S. bought the site. She was wearing the stress and ingenuity, often make us unprepared. Second ○ 一○ recently held concert press conference, when she was a slender, black and red with a white dress elegant appearance, almost barefoot people thought she was on stage a closer look, it was found days later Pei Chen’s is transparent with sandals. Several hours after the conference, “transparent with sandals” has become the most popular online search term, or even have Online Shop begun selling “Faye Wong sandals” demonstration of her influence did not with the reduced visibility weak.
