Cecilia Cheung Lost Her Sense of Self After Becoming a Mom
Cecilia Cheung’s (張栢芝) recent appearance on the second season of Sisters Who Make Waves <乘風破浪的姐姐> has generated a lot of attention and discussion. In addition to her coming face-to-face with Faye Wong’s (王菲) good friend, Na Ying (那英), Cecilia’s singing and dancing skills have also come under scrutiny.
Cecilia reflected on her poor performance in a recent segment of the show where artistes review their performance evaluations from the judges and comments from netizens. “I honestly don’t know what I’m supposed to do on this show. After memorizing the beginning dance moves, I would forget the next steps that come after it.”
Upon hearing Cecilia’s confession, Na Ying candidly expressed, “It’s because all you can think about are your sons!” Despite the public’s suspicions that Na Ying may hold back because of her friendship with Cecilia’s former love rival Faye Wong, Na Ying gave her straightforward assessment. “I really hope you can open up. You work hard to earn money in order to give the best to your sons. Outsiders will not understand these things. You have to perform with your truest self. That is how netizens can understand what type of person Cecilia Cheung is.”
Admitting to have misunderstood Cecilia in the past, Na Ying is beginning to understand who Cecilia truly is after increased interaction. During rehearsals, Na Ying gave Cecilia a cookie. After trying one and stating that her sons would love it, Cecilia immediately packed a few more in her purse to bring home for her sons.
Recalling the incident, Na Ying said to Cecilia, “All you think about is your sons. You’ve lost yourself. Even when you are performing, you will not let others see you fail and feel the need to stay strong. This is not an easy feat. Honestly, my heart aches for you. Let others see and get to know the real you.”
Hearing these words, Cecilia was extremely touched and teared up. She expressed, “At first, I did not feel like I should continue with this show. But their words of encouragement have made me realize that I need to put it 100 percent effort, and put my heart into it.”
