Some of you have heard by now about Hong Kong movie star and singer Edison Chen’s internet sex scandal. I’ve seen the pictures but not the videos, which were stolen from Chen’s laptop when Chen took the computer in to be, ahem, serviced. The pictures and videos were then, er, disseminated all over the internet. Of the six different women who appeared in what was described by the Sydney Morning Herald as “hundreds of photos,” three have been identified: Canto-pop singer/actress Gillian Chung, 27, singer/actress Cecilia Cheung, 27, and singer Bobo Chan, 28. There are also rumors of a sex tape starring Chen’s ex Maggie Q.
On Monday, Gillian Chung apologized to her fans, many of them teens, saying she had been “naive” in her youth. Nine people have been arrested and three charged in connection with, um, spreading the material on the web. Variety also reports that Chen’s movie career may be in jeopardy because of all this.
And, according to the Herald, the Chinese government-run Beijing Youth Daily (whose domain name bjyouth.ynet.com is a joke unto itself) ran an editorial that declared:
If the women stars were willing to have their photos taken, then they are also leading a dissolute life. If not, Chen is simply a scoundrel…
Obviously these stars do not live up to their public image. So it is worthless for fans to believe blindly in their idols and regard them as spiritual beacons.
Spiritual beacons? Sounds like some BJ youth aren’t actually getting BJ’s.
I’m sorry, but I just don’t get it. Other than the fact that explicit photos were stolen from the guy’s laptop and illegally distributed, violating several individuals’ right to privacy, which is totally wrong, and that, yes, Chen seems particularly fascinated with his own cock (what guy isn’t, really?) and taking sexxxy pictures (insert Asian camera joke here), where’s the scandal?
Thank you, Greenie!
