I was at Golden Village VivoCity last night, just sitting at the wall sofa with my friends while we waited for our movie.
Suddenly, Wang Wang said, “Isn’t that Kelly Chen?”
I turned and looked.
“Yup,” I said.
Wang Wang said, “She’s so tall! And her eyes are so big!”
“Yeah,” I had to agree. “She’s very very pretty in real life.”
We sat there and watched as Hong Kong celebrity Kelly Chen, surrounded by security guards and minders, walked past us.
The cinema was quite empty at the time, so she only collected a small mob by the time she reached the other end of the foyer.
I’m not into chasing celebrities and I’m not a Kelly Chen fan, either, so I just sat there at first. But then I suddenly remembered that I have unwittingly turned myself into a pseudo-journalist with this blog, and that I have a duty to my readers, some of whom might be Kelly Chen fans.
So I sprung out of my seat and raced after Kelly Chen and her entourage.
She had to stop for a bit because her 15 or so fans were demanding autographs. I don’t know where they got it from, but they had posters of her latest movie, An Empress and The Warriors.
It was almost impossible to take a photo of her because everyone was stuffing posters in her face.
One of her minders kept yelling out in a strict voice, “Put it lower, put it lower!”
After a while, they finally did lower the posters and I managed to get a couple pictures.
Haha… she looks like she’s getting strangled by her fans.
That was all I managed to photograph before her minders pulled her away from the mob into Cinema 1.
Okay, side story!
I have been likened to Kelly Chen several times in the past, at different periods of my life when I sported a certain hairstyle.
In fact, every time I change my hairstyle, someone will comment that I look like a different celebrity or famous person. It’s damn weird lah. As if my face is plastacine.
Anyway, I used to not like it when people told me I look like Kelly Chen. I didn’t think she was that pretty. I prefer other kinds of pretty, like sweetie-pie Vivian Hsu, with big round anime eyes.
I know she used to be a porn actress but that’s beside the point.
Anyway, I have to agree that I did look like Kelly Chen from some angles. But I know she’s much prettier than me, so don’t rub it in. Haha.
Here, I dug up a few photos. These were taken about four years ago when I had the Kelly Chen hairstyle.
Kelly Chen is mesmerising in real life. Maybe it’s that celebrity aura that most celebrities have. She sort of floated along like a goddess, standing a head taller than all the people guarding her, her face glowing.
She never smiled. Her expression was like you see in the photos the whole time.
It looks kinda cool, so I’m going to practise that.
Anyone wants to play at being my entourage and come and mob me some time so I can practise my goddess walk? Haha.
