Jenny Tseng Continues Her Rant on Disrespectful Singers

Jenny Tseng’s (甄妮) criticism on G.E.M.’s (鄧紫棋) disrespectful behavior has created a slight disturbance in the Hong Kong pop music scene.

The veteran diva, known for her powerful voice and classic 1980s theme songs, retired to the United States during the early 1990s. She made a comeback to the Chinese music scene with her Love Show: The Farewell World Tour in May 2010, which kicked off with four sold-out shows in Hong Kong. The tour was then followed with stops in Taiwan, Canada, the United States, Australia, Guangzhou, Singapore, Macau, and Malaysia.

The tour’s final leg will be an encore show in Hong Kong, which will be held at the Hong Kong Coliseum from February 18 to 20, 2013.

During an interview to promote the upcoming concert, Jenny, who was asked if she is up-to-date with Hong Kong’s current singers, admitted that she did not have very good impressions of them. She first criticized G.E.M.–who was at one point branded as Jenny’s “successor” due to her powerful vocals–for her poor attitude and lack of integrity when they met for the first time at a musical festival five months ago.

“I don’t know her personally,” Jenny said in a follow-up interview. “When she first debuted, her manager once invited me to perform with her, but I turned down the offer. Maybe a grudge was held against me ever since! Maybe it’s because I am old. It is not surprising if she doesn’t know who I am. I actually really want to be someone’s junior again. But I really want to say is that as an artist, politeness is a fundamental rule. If you lack self-cultivation, your talents will not go far.”

As one of Hong Kong’s most successful and respected seniors in the music industry, Jenny is aware that her comments are like an imperial decree. “I do believe that my words can be despicable and loathsome, but when people ask, I respond.” Jenny reassured that she is not afraid of getting bashed for her criticisms, because she is just “speaking [her] truth.”

More Criticisms

Besides criticizing G.E.M., Eason Chan (陳奕迅), Cecilia Cheung (張柏芝), and Daniel Chan (陳曉東) as stated in earlier reports, Jenny also did not have very much nice things to say to Hong Kong young legends, Raymond Lam (林峯), Kelly Chen (陳慧琳), and Kay Tse (謝安琪).

“When [Raymond Lam] saw me at the Battle of Singing Stars <翡翠歌星紅白鬥> last summer, he just stood there and stared at me. The most interesting part was that when he was doing a radio interview, he was telling the host of how excited he was to have been able to meet Jenny Jeh Jeh. What? He didn’t even greet me! How happy can he be? I felt like he was taking advantage of me.

“[Kelly Chen] was also not very polite. One time, when I was chatting with Aaron Kwok (郭富城) backstage, I saw her looking at me, but she did not greet me. She did not try to get herself involved in our conversation either. When I finished my conversation with Aaron, she and Aaron continued theirs. Do you know how embarrassed I was? Before I walked back, I turned around and told her, ‘I don’t know you, so I don’t know what to say to you!’ She looked shocked, but it is possible that I had also spoken out her own thoughts. Yes, it was a very childish move of me, but I couldn’t hold in the anger. I felt a lot better after I said it.”

Asked for her thoughts on Kay Tse, Jenny said with a grimace, “Thank goodness I am not like Paula Tsui (徐小鳳). She likes to take the initiative to ask for a photo with the juniors. I heard through a friend that one time, Paula asked for a photo with a group of juniors backstage. Everyone was nice about it, except for [Kay Tse]. Her assistant coldly rejected Paula’s request and said that [Kay] was not feeling well, that she looked too sickly for a picture!”

Praises

However, Jenny did not criticize every name that was thrown at her. She admitted that she has come across a few “obedient” singers in her lifetime in the industry.

Coco Lee (李玟) is very talkative and friendly. Jade Kwan (關心妍) will introduce herself; Gigi Leung (梁詠琪) is a great collaborator, and Miriam Yeung (楊千嬅) is very polite.”

Asked if she has found any outstanding singers in today’s industry, Jenny confidently said, “So far, I have not found anyone who can be my successor! The hottest singer at the moment, Eason Chan, is pretty good at singing, but the problem with him is that his live singing sounds exactly like in the CD.”

Did Jenny have any advice for her juniors? Jenny said, “As an artist, do not forget your origins. Modesty is a virtue. Happiness is being you. On stage you are an artist; behind stage you are an ordinary person. This is how you become a successful artist. Won’t you get tired for posing all day? In the past, I never had the chance to brush the floors or clean the tables, but now these have become my hobbies. Don’t steal my broom if you don’t want to get on my bad side.”

    Now she’s just being obnoxious. Seems like her problem is just people not introducing themselves. Maybe people just didn’t want to bother her.

    And when was sounding like a CD a bad thing? Being out of tune and unable to reach certain notes is better?

      Ric,

      “And when was sounding like a CD a bad thing?”

      I think what Jenny meant by this is that when a singer performs live, he/she is suppose to project their emotions and charismatic side better. As a singer, one cannot simply just sing the song as it is in a recording studio. To me, these “divas” from the 80s – early 90s is what separates themselves from the singers now. Jenny Tseng herself, Sally Yeh, Anita Mui, Sandy Lam just to name a few, owned the stage when it came to their live performances.

        I agree with Jenny’s comments in this respect. If Eason sings exactly like what he did on CD, why do people have to pay a lot to hear him live in concerts.

        When a diva (jenny) met divas (kelly and kay)or divos ( LF & eason) , status friction occurs.This is common.Anyway, when jenny did interview with steven chan in 2007 , she blast wong jing ,alan tam and natalis chan for polluting his late hubby alexander fu shing into becoming a playboy

    Ok, now I really wonder if the juniors are being rude or she just thinks that she is better so the juniors have to treat her like a goddess?

    I admire Jenny’s talent and all, but I feel she needs to be more easygoing instead of so old fashioned. of course she is better than the newer generation in terms of experience and all. But she should be more humble and understanding about it all.

    I agree with Raina about her explanation on sounding like a CD. There are many singers who sound great and ok on a recorded CD, but when they performed live without all of the enhancements and all it was a completely different story… If you can sing well live, that’s when you are truly a good singer. However, if you can only sound good or decent on Cd then I don’t feel you are a truly good singer yet.

        I am shocked that you don’t know her… I think many of you have heard her sing but just don’t know it. Even if you don’t buy her CDs or anything, you often hear her sing themesongs for TVB series. Some of them are Legend of the Condor Heroes 83 with Roman Tam, Whatever it Takes, God of Sabre and many others that I can remember now. Jenny is actually very famous but I can understand why you don’t know her. However, in a sense you do but just did not realize it…

        HK or Taiwan even mainland singers of any caliber, no matter how young, know or should know who Jenny Yan Lei is.

        Hong Kong young legends, Raymond Lam (林峯), Kelly Chen (陳慧琳), and Kay Tse (謝安琪).

        Them young legends?? Popular or famous maybe, but legends? They have not paid their dues yet and definitely not on that level yet as legend. Now, Jenny is a legend who has paid her dues many times over.

        Actually in the Chinese original article that I read, Jenny did not mention the names of those singers she criticized but their identities are easy to infer.

        It is true that Jenny is a legend but she should be more understanding to the younger generation.

        @Exiodus,
        You are welcome and yes, Jenny does sound like very special. My mom loves her and Francis Yip who is another legend that many of the singers today just cannot match up to.

        i know, wow she sounds unbelievable.
        even if you are an elder, politeness goes both ways. if she/he does not greet then you can very well greet them too since it certainly she has alot of saliva in her hahaa..lol…my mom was actually watching one of her concert on dvd one time, she is NOT THAT POLITE herself, sounds snobbish as well. She better teach her daughter to be polite as well then and not having someone tell her she’s whatever whatever that teens behave these days. But you know what, some ppl can only judge and not look at themselves.
        I have this colleagues once, she would tells us HOW POLITE blab blab all the compliments and praising about her live in b/f…that her parents love him better than herself and that he treats elders so well and all that crap n he came once for her after work. Ohhh boy ohh boy, he can only nod and force a smile on us when this colleague of mine says how POLITE he is to everyone. sighhh…. hahaa…. unbelievable, this Jenny woman sounds exactly like her right now hahaa…lol..

        Yen, I think the reporter twisted her words somewhat in this article. And i think what Jenny is trying ot say about Kelly is that there were three of them standing…wether jenny is famous or not it doesn’t hurt for kelly to acknowledge her instead of treating her as invisable…that’s why she was upset. People forget that most of these celebs are one way behind closed doors and another in public.

        Asians tend to be big on respecting seniority, regardless of whether they’re right or wrong. That is a bone of contention in my relationship with my parents, but at least I’ve mellowed down a bit over the years. You’ve just got to understand that they had different upbringings and values.

        I was only born in the 90s so I was a bit late to the party, but my mum made sure I learnt how to appreciate the likes of Jenny, Paula, Anita, Cheung Tak Lan, etc. Heck, even Lisa Wong. They’re just on a whole other level.

        Yen, u r lying that u dunno her just because u r kelly’s fan. Jenny instead is very frank and honest in her opinions and for that i respect her. With her opinions voiced out I am sure she will know that she will be attracting lots of condemnation ( a good example that is you)from the fans of whom she had criticised but she is not bothered at all cos that is plain truth from her. Period.

      • lychii04 replied:

        Yes because you’re a casual listener. They work in the field, and HK music scene is kind of small so most of the celebrities would know of each other let alone legends. So its definitely rude for them not to have shown her the proper respect. Even in normal work situations, if you see your higher ups, you need to at least acknowledge them in some way, like say hi (not even to the extent of bowing or whatever) not ignore them like they’re not there.

      I don’t quite agree that the juniors mere rude to Jenny. Some people are shy and don’t know how to approach some glamorous and renowned senior singers. They might have loved to talk to her or taken photos with her, but they were too shy to do it. As a nice and friendly senior, I think Jenny should have taken the initiatives to introduce herself, like Paula Tsui (徐小鳳). If Jenny introduced herself to the juniors and the juniors still did not like to talk to her, she could then call the juniors impolite. There was just lack of communication.

        I don’t think it is rudeness now that I think about it more… I guess it is more of a clash of the older generation versus the younger generation which is typical in many cases and is mainly due to lack of communication as Sandcherry mentioned…

      I do not think Jenny needs to do that since she is really famous and popular. She does not need to use any young talents to make herself known. I admit that she is being a bit overboard but I can sort of understand why. She is a veteran and is from a different generation where things were different. Many of my relatives are like that and it is annoying but understandable…

      She is part of the older generation and oftentimes, the old and the young clash because of how much the former expects the latter to pay their “respects”. It isn’t anything new, it’s just part of the Chinese tradition and sadly because we’re younger, to avoid these kind of situations, we just have to nod or smile or greet to show we acknowledge their existences.

    I think she is confirming what the filmmakers noted about young Hong Kong people these days during the making of Infernal Affairs 2 – many of them won’t put out good manners if it doesn’t further their career – many are emptier than the young people of previous generations.

    I think the most frightening thing about the old bullies was that Fay Fay would want to cross her back in the day in TVB. pimp out young starlets and you didn’t I hope that isn’t true but many people believe it. I can imagine Yun Lei scaring the crap out of any young entertainer back in the day if you displeased her. Both are wrong – to not be well mannered to elders and to be cruelly dominant over juniors.

    I hope that isn’t true but many people believe it including that she pushed Little Dragon Girl out to her casino first husband.

    If Kelly or the younger generation do not know their predecessors’ names or acknowledge them if you know who they are, that is a crying shame…It is like Music 101 where you learn the history of music and those who made it possible for the succeeding generation. Social etiquette is something that many entertainers failed to learn and thus lack to be gracious and sociable.

    I feel like if Jenny initiated contact or greeted them first, and in return, they ignored it/did not do that same, then THAT would be a problem.
    “he just stood there and stare at me.”
    “i saw her looking at me but did not greet me.”
    well jenny werent you doing the same thing?

    “Everyone was nice about it, except for [Kay Tse]. Her assistant coldly rejected Paula’s request and said that [Kay] was not feeling well, that she looked too sickly for a picture!”
    her ASSISTANT was the one who “coldly rejected” her request. you can’t make implication on Kay based on what her assistant did.

    “Happiness is being you”: Why cant other artists be themselves instead of trying to PR her and be “obedient” to her?
    “On stage you are an artist; behind stage you are an ordinary person.”: Since behind stage, artist supposed to be ordinary… Why should they try to talk to her. She maybe Diva ages ago but she should accept that she is not that hot any more.
    “Don’t steal my broom if you don’t want to get on my bad side.”: She is just so self importance.

    I find some of these comments hilarious. First of all, I would ask those so called ‘music listeners’ to just be ashamed of yourself if you do not know who Jenny Tseng is. Name me someone who can sing like her in HK music industry !!
    Secondly, when we attend concerts, we want to enjoy the live performance of singers with full emotions and soul. This is the way fans connect with their idols beside judging if that singer is a real good singer or not. It would be quite silly to judge a voice mainly listening to the CDs.
    Thirdly, how can these young singers be regarded as legends? By winning more awards or having bigger fan base?? And how many of these young singers is truthful with their words? After accepting awards, they will say nice and encouraging phrases to their screaming fans but only God knows their real attitude behind stage. jenny tseng is quite different in this sense because she is a very straight forward person. However, I think that her comment about Paula Tsui is a bit too far. It’s up to Paula to choose her own ways of communicating with the young singers even though she is a big star.
    Lastly, how many young singers out there who regard themselves as legends can still render a good live song when they are as old as Jenny Tseng?

      I don’t think her comment was meant to be a slight at Paula. More like Jenny realises that she’s got a short fuse and not as personable as Paula Tsui, and she might have blown a gasket had that incident happened to her instead…

    With due respect, looks like she is the one having a bad attitude and all pent-up for nothing. Is she out preaching the word ‘respect’?

    Seriously, going by the abovementioned news, she is thinking the world of herself, pretentiously being a world diva who demands all respect from every citizen. Should kowtow her. Can’t recall if Teresa Teng or other more famous divas did that. Reckon she is being too pampered and self centered. Free media attention at the expense of others shouldn’t be earned like this.

    Just because she is out from hibernation after donkey years doesn’t warrant everyone to still know and worship her. Those were the days, maybe.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if heaps of the younger generation doesn’t even know who the heck this old hat is.

    Argument is Raymond Lam might be found dumbstruck and loss for words, likewise Kelly wouldn’t want to barge in and interrupt any oncoming conversation. That would be rude anyway. So she shouldn’t be so sensitive about the incidents.

    It’s pointless undiplomatically blasting one after another just because they don’t see or cross your path.

    Like it or not, a grain of rice produces many types of different people.

    Please get over it, age graciously and let sleeping dog lies, will you granny or else Fu Sheng might be turning around in his grave, ok?

    This is a funny article (:
    This happens all the time to my classmates and me.
    Even when I see my high school classmates at my university, I don’t go up and say hello. It’s a weird thing to do, I suppose. Usually, I will give my classmates a smile and then begin to head off to my classes. Some of my friends pointed out how I don’t say hello to them even when I walk past them.
    I feel like Jenny wants people to greet her since it’s a courtesy thing to do.

        True that. Ray has never talked bad about others and no other seniors ever criticized his so called bad manners before. He might be just starstruck and don’t wish to bother Jenny. This is why I think Jenny is using Ray and Kelly’s name for her own publicity. Maybe GEM’s name isn’t enough so sr has to add more names in her rant.

    There is definitely something wrong with Jenny Tseng. She is overly sensitive and unreasonable. Living up to that age already, one would think that a person would be more understanding and not so shallow. Just because someone does not initiate a conversation with someone first, does not mean that they are rude. Also sometimes a person can get so happy that they just freeze because they could not believe that they are actually seeing such a famous singer. As for her interpretation of how an artist should act, she makes it sound like it is only a job and an act rather than what comes from within or is felt. Making art is not merely a job.

    “When [Raymond Lam] saw me at the Battle of Singing Stars last summer, he just stood there and stared at me. ”

    This is where I disagree on Ray being rude as GEM. Because he was probably star struck, like Kelly was. Miriam is famous for her boisterous personality so for her to say hi and all isn’t that too much for her sort of personality. Jenny should differentiate between rude and star struck. And maybe a little fear as well.

      @ Funn Lim: “When [Raymond Lam] saw me at the Battle of Singing Stars last summer, he just stood there and stared at me.”

      From the Chinese original I would translate the above sentence differently, which gives off a different vibe on Jenny’s words.

      Besides GEM, Jenny also criticized several other juniors without naming names, but from her hints the identities of the celebrities are easily deduced.

      Opportunistic Chok King
      “Like that currently very popular siu sang who acts and sings. When he saw me at this public place (7/7 TVB Battle of Singing Stars) he also ignored me (m lei yan). But the strange thing is during his tv interview he so very excitedly told the host: ‘I was so happy to see Yan Lei Jeh!’ But he didn’t even greet me so how happy could he be? More like being ‘opportunistic’ (chau siu) ba? ”

      除了鄧紫棋外,甄妮還對其他數位後輩進行了不點名批評。不過從種種特征暗示來看,這些明星的身份也呼之欲出了。

      “抽水Chok 王”
      “好像那個又演又唱的當紅小生,他在公開場合(去年7 月7 日的《翡翠歌星紅白斗》)見到我,也是不理人的。但最奇怪的是,他接受電視台訪問時,又很興奮地跟主播說‘見到甄妮姐好開心’。他明明連招呼都沒有跟我打,有多開心呢? 像是‘抽水’多一點吧。”

      Clamine, by your translation then what she says is more damning than above article. I still think she misunderstood. It is indeed rude if one just walk past, not acknowledging ala GEM but for Ray like anyone else, like us fans to stand by the side and stare it is more star struck. Moreover Jenny Tseng doesn’t give the vibe of being a very approachable star. She does look stern and evidenced by the 2 articles, she is stern. Must be a scary mom! And mentor. But I understand her grievances.

    Fake Funn or the Stubborn Funn or perhaps Imposter Funn, your style of writing reminds me of that obnoxious imposter and I bet you are that person. It is not about a senior wanting you to speak or be called a certain way. You can speak anyway you want, but to use a name that you have no affinity for but contempt is obnoxious in itself. You are rude. That’s the truth. It is not following expectations. This is having the decency of finding your own name. You don’t even have the courage to give yourself an additional New Funn or something like that. Yours is not freedom of expression or freedom of speech but a license to annoy just because there is no registration feature here and just because you can. The fact that you blatantly ignore my request, not even a reply or by others shows to me you do not think highly of anyone.

      Meeting guests in your house and meeting seniors that you’ve never talked to before is different. Not greeting and minding their own business just means they are respecting the senior’s space and privacy and not necessarily rudeness. Respect also goes both ways. The seniors should respect the juniors too. In this case Jenny is bullying and acting diva on the juniors.

      Jenny is very traditional. After her husband died, she never remarried. She conceived her daughter using her deceased husband’s sperm, which was kept in a bank intentionally for her to use.

She’s just like Deborah Li, who both strongly emphasize respecting seniors or your elders, which is why in this day and age Nic still bows to his seniors, which hardly anyone does it anymore.

        From the Chinese article:
        [..]But what I want to say is this: The prerequisite for an artist is to have decorum. If (she) doesn’t even have self-cultivation, no matter how great she is, her future development will be limited….In the past, within 5 steps if I so happened upon You Ya (尤雅) I would immediately greet her with “You Jie’”

    Ahhhh. The thing about respect, I always thought it was a mutual thing and not based on who was born earlier. I think if she treated those singers the way she wants to be treated, she would know.

      This is a modern concept. Asian culture in the past generation put a lot of importance of respecting your elders. Jenny is from the older generation who was taught respect the elders.

    Was she mixed with white? I think everyone should be treated equally dispite your age. It would be nice if everybody greets eachother but that will never happen. I agreed ppl need to be nicer and more polite but at the same time she should not let them bother her so much. I think it’s better if she keep these feelings to herself and not publicly annoucing it…is better to have friends then enemies unless they called her names then she have a case.

        Yes, you’re right. It should be Austrian. Her father is Austrian White.

        As per Wikipedia, Jenny Tseng’s birth name was Yan Suk Si(甄淑詩). If her father was Austrian, why did she not have an Austrian last name? Very strange! “Yan” is a Chinese last name. Perhaps she was named after her mother’s last name (her mother was not married officially).

        Her parents are divorced. Yan is a made up name. Her real surname after her mother is Chen.

    Jenny confidently said, “So far, I have not found anyone who can be my successor!
    Does that mean, she is the only singer in the world that no others successor can overtake yet? She is too arrogant! If she wants others to respect her, then she should respect others artists and be like Paula Tsui who is ever graceful and elegant.
    Has she forgotten how successful Faye Wong, Sandy Lam & Sally Yeh that she thinks still cant succeed her?

    She said “In the past, I never had the chance to brush the floors or clean the tables, but now these have become my hobbies. Don’t steal my broom if you don’t want to get on my bad side.” Yes, she should instead go brush, mop and clean the floor at home if she is so happy with and not go firing others artists

      Successor in terms of voice and singing skill.

      Truth is Jenny is right. No successor for her type of voice. Like no successor for Anita Mui’s type of performer. Paula Tsui, Faye Wong, Sandy Lam, Sally Yeh are all sorta same genre with each other BUT not Jenny. You can say Jenny is like Aretha Franklin sort whilst Sandy Lam, Paula Tsui etc is like Whitney Houston sort. Kinda different genre so she is right to say no one can be her successor. It may sound arrogant but with her decades in the business and her consistency, she has earned the right to brag.

        Jenny may sound a bit arrogant but I agree that she has been in the industry for a long time and have proven herself. Therefore, I think she deserves to brag since it is true that maybe no one can succeed her…

      I honestly don’t think Faye Wong, Sandy Lam, and Sally Yeh’s talent matches Jenny. If a guy could be her successor, it would be Jacky Cheung.

        Agree …………”don’t think Faye Wong, Sandy Lam, and Sally Yeh’s talents match Jenny’s”.

        The only one that I can think of is Teresa Carpio. Frances Yip is very compatible as well.

        None of the younger generation has a voice like Jenny’s. I think Teresa Carpio belongs to the same generation (Jenny Tseng is 59 and Teresa Carpio is 56). Teresa is only 3 years younger than Jenny, but she started at a younger age. Jenny sang more Cantopop and Mandarin pop, while Teresa sang more English pop.

        True that Teresa Carpio & Deanie Ip & Jenny Tseng & Francis Yip belongs to “Aretha Franklin” genre divas as their appeals to the “oldie” baby-boomer (so they got their own mass appeal); while Faye Wong, Sally Yeh, Sandy Lam & Shirley Kwan are the “Mariah Carey & Whitney Houston & Janet Jackson & Madonna” Gen-X (mass appeal)…thats why she cant said her “baby-boomer” genre is the best as Gen-X singers have its own mass appeal to the youngers audiences too…so, she should said ” my “baby-boomer” generation no successor yet & not “no successor overall mass appeal”

        She didn’t say “no successor overall mass appeal” either.

        @ Funn

        I don’t like Maria Cordero’s singing style and voice when I was little (when she sang that ‘Prison on Fire’ themesong). But, now that I listen to her again, I started to appreciate her singing and find that her style is perfect for the song.

        Reporters asked her about todays industry’s singers (which covers until Gen-Y also) and not limit to her generation singers..

        I still remember Jenny not respectful comment when reporters ask her about Anita Mui passing… Anita Mui is a “asia madonna” diva but jenny comment about Anita is so arrogant…

        What did Jenny Tseng say?

        Maria and the others named all belong to a time when women sang out loud and clear and crisp and all. Nowadays, I notice many are whispering or you know, like a kitten. But I am frankly not a fan of big voices, as in shouting for no reasons but all the women named in here sang loud but not shout.

        I’m same with you. I don’t like singers belting for no reason. That’s why I’m not a fan of many belters that are praised so much in American Idol. Belting inappropriately ruined the song.

        Shu:
        Personally I don’t like Elisa Chan Kit-Ling. She shouts when she sings loud. First she does not have the voice to sing loud, and her words (especially in English) are never clear. She is in no comparison to Jenny Tseng, Teresa Carpio and Frances Yip. These singers have big voices; they sing well when they sing lout. Some singers try to sing loud, but they don’t have the voice, and Chan Kit Ling is one of them.
