Possessing a flourishing singing career, Joey Yung’s (容祖兒) love life also became the focus of the general public. Debuting more than a decade ago, Joey has been the frequent subject of negative rumors, with Joey and Denise Ho’s (何韻詩) same-sex relationship the most discussed topic. Ignoring the public’s focus, Joey felt that it was unnecessary to dwell on the subject of homosexuality in this day and age. Joey openly spoke about Denise, who inspired her to be a more courageous person. Discussing numerous topics, this article was part one of a series of five articles in which Joey will share her perspective in life…..

Joey revealed, “Denise and I were introduced by Albert Yeung (楊受成) before we officially joined the entertainment industry. In 1999, Denise worked as a backup singer at Anita Mui’s (梅艷芳) concert. Mr. Yeung introduced us while backstage. Since meeting over a decade ago, we have been supporting each other.”

Fortunately Inspired by Life

“Denise and I are two very different people. The qualities that she possesses, I do not have. The qualities that I have, she does not have. Our personalities are polar opposites. I am an indecisive person, while she is much more decisive. However, she is too persistent, while I am more flexible. This is usually the case for people of different personality traits to become good friends because they can complement each other. On the other hand, people who are too similar may be unable to become friends. Although I will seek self-improvement, I need to be inspired by people around me. She is able to inspire my life and my work!

“She is like a martyr, a vanguard, who is always moving forward. She will always do what everyone else has not yet done or will not do. For example, her words may be too extreme at times, but as a friend, you will understand that this is due to her persistent nature. The world needs people like Denise. She has affected my behavior and made me more courageous, teaching me to adhere to my beliefs.

”Everyone’s attention has remained on Denise and I for many years. I will ask, ‘Did this affect my career?’ It appears it did not. I continued to release music albums and concert performances. Then it’s fine, as long as it did not impact my career. I do not mind being the subject of gossip for other people to discuss, that’s okay!

“This year is 2011 and perhaps the end of the world may come next year.  Why is there a need to dwell on this topic [same sex relationships]? In foreign countries, many celebrities will not be discriminated against in this area. The world should contain different types of friends. Why does Hong Kong appear to be outwardly open, but continue to be resistant towards this problem? It’s not necessary to make a fuss….”

A DNA Error

“I feel that same-sex love is very common. It is a form of love; why is it unacceptable? Many people around me are in same-sex relationships. I feel that perhaps there may be an error in the person’s DNA [determining sexual preference], but you can not decide whether this is abnormal. What is normal? It is difficult to define. However, I tend to like to be friends with this type of people because they are more careful and have high demand in beauty. In love, there is no distinction in whether it is a man or woman. Love is irrespective of age and boundaries. Love is a major event!

”Love is a life nourishing product, better than skin care products and supplements. Love can make people improve, and even firm one’s facial skin. Everyone needs love! In the past, I focused on work, however as people grow up, they need different things. I would like to find someone who can share my personal feelings on a daily basis. I never dreamed about a wedding in the future because I am not a princess. I am a practical person; when the hearts of two people are together, it is sufficient.”

Will Not Have a Child

“My mother was often concerned that I will become bad. I do not know how I can become bad? If I were not bad as a child, I should not be bad as an adult. Until today, my mother is anxious about many things.  Today, I possess so many things that I need to cherish; I will not easily turn ‘bad’ and allow these things to slip away from my fingers. I do not want to do what my mother is currently doing, so I will not have children for certain.”

Jayne: Is this the most open Joey has been about same-sex relationships, including what Denise means to her? It is indeed wonderful to find someone you love who inspires you to be a better person in life. It appears that Joey may even regard Denise as a long-term life partner or “soul mates.”

    I personally agree on what Joey has to say, although I’m unsure about the whole ‘error in DNA’ part, because that makes LGBTQ people seem abnormal. It’s interesting to see how firmly Joey stands on not wanting to have kids. For me I’ve always felt like life is incompletely without children, but I can also see why others feel like children are a burden. As long as one is happy and isn’t breaking the law, other’s opinions shouldn’t matter.

      I am bit confused myself. I read another article awhile ago about her saying that she did not want to marry any guy that doesn’t live in HK. I wonder if that is cover up that is lesbian or not? Maybe she is bisexual?? I guess she is still not comfortable about revealing her sexual preference. This sort of reminds me of Hebe from SHE… But who really knows unless they admit it directly or make it really obvious?

        I think she may be bisexual, I remember when she debuted she had a boyfriend who was not in the business. I’m happy for her and Denise if they are indeed long-life partners.

        Hebe, on the other hand, just strikes me as straight, just that she is an extremely private and guarded person. The way she responds to questions about her ‘ideal partner’ is similar to other straight girls’ responses.

      @loungegirl,

      It seems irrelevant to put a relationship label in their relationship. As long as they are happy with what they have now, why does it matter? 😉

      “Discussing numerous topics, this article was part one of a series of five articles in which Joey will share her perspective in life…..”

      Looking forward to reading the other four parts!

        I was not into celebrity gossips previously thus I was not aware of Joey Yung and Denise Ho’s close relationship. This article was a bit shocking and confusing to me so I just wanted a clearer yes/no answer… Of course, I don’t think one’s sexuality matters but since this is my first time reading of it, I am definitely curious.

        Loungegirl,
        “This article was a bit shocking and confusing to me so I just wanted a clearer yes/no answer…”

        My interpretation is that yes, Joey Yung and Denise Ho are a couple, a serious relationship that has endured for over a decade.

        In past interviews, Joey was more evasive about her sexuality, although her own personal attitudes towards same-sex relationships is that of acceptance. Joey referred to the fact that she is surrounded by people who are in such relationships. Earlier tabloids claimed that Joey’s mother is also bisexual and may be in a same-sex relationship after divorcing earlier.

        Denise Ho has been more open about her sexuality and her ability to embrace this on a more public level may have influenced Joey to come forth, as demonstrated by her open remarks towards same sex relationships. Through Joey’s remarks, Denise obviously means a lot to her, as she inspires her to be a better person. Joey doesn’t need marriage and children, possible but not absolute limitations in a same-sex union. All these views may not give us an absolute answer unless Joey makes such an outright statement, but it gives us a very clear idea already.

    Kinda obvious isn’t it? There is no more on point answer to her sexuality than what is being presented here. I think everyone now knows her preference.

    Surprised at how candid she sounds. Not surprised about the topic.

    They both seem like nice girls who deserve to be happy. I agree with most things said here. It is difficult to find someone who is good for you.

    If people are waiting for her to announce;”Heyyyy, I’m a lesbian and my lover is Denise”, you might be waiting for a long time.

    If people can’t see what this is saying then, well. Yeah.

      Itasoen,
      “same sex relationship sometimes could be the result of over disappointment of diff sex relationship.”

      Hmm…that theory would go against the theory that homosexuality is inborn? If our sexuality preferences are a result of disappointment with one gender, then that theorizes that sexuality is shaped by the environment.

      @ itasoen

      If someone is really heterosexual, it’s hard to turn the other way, unless they’re bi/gay and haven’t come out. I don’t think disappointment in the opposite race can solely turn someone gay.
