Jolin hospitalized, she cancels Milan Fashion Week

Jolin was supposed to attend once again Milan Fashion Week (02/19 – 02/27) this year.

But during Chinese New Year (February 16th), Jolin had acute gastroenteritis.
On the day before her departure for Milan (February 18th), she went to a doctor who told her that her gastroenteritis turned into a viral infection which spread to her eyes and ears.

As a consequence Jolin’s travel to Milan has been canceled by fear that the virus might spread to her brain, and she had to be hospitalized.

Her agent stressed that the virus is not life-threatening and that her appetite and physical strength are slowly recovering.
He added that it’s the first time since her debut that she canceled work because of illness.

Jolin declared on Instagram (picture below): “Thanks to my beloved @bulgariofficial Bulgari Team Joyce Lilly and Rebecca ~ Thank you for your beautiful greetings and your heart. Really sorry I did not take good care of myself, missed this year’s big show. #LookforwardtoBvlgarishow”

She might be discharged from the hospital in a couple of days, and is expected to resume work in March.

On February 6th, an earthquake of magnitude 6.4 on the moment magnitude scale hit Taiwan. The epicenter was on the coastline near Hualien, which was the most severely affected area, with a maximum felt intensity of VII (very strong) on the Mercalli intensity scale. At least 17 deaths have been reported, with 282 injured. (from Wikipedia)

On February 9th, a Tzu-Chi Foundation volunteer posted this on her Facebook account (English translation):

“I received a call last night from Jolin Tsai’s agent. She’s not in Taiwan but because of trust and compassion, she’s donating NT$1 million (27 802,69 € or USD$34,122.25) to Tzu-Chi Foundation to deal with the relief work in Hualien. We are very grateful”

This post unexpectedly exposed Jolin’s low-profile act of charity. Since her mother is a volunteer for Tzu-Chi Foundation, and because she’s deeply affected, Jolin decided to assist the victims.
Her agent said that Jolin is abroad at the moment, but she saw this distressed situation, the disaster area and the victims, she felt very grateful to relief workers, and she wanted to do something for Taiwan.

Jolin wanted something different to promote this new release instead of the usual signing event, she wanted more interaction with her fans.

She thanked them tearfully during the fan meeting, saying: “I never thought I could sing for more than a decade, I always felt I was not doing enough. […] Thank you everyone, your support made me more brave, thank you.”

This event has also been streamed live on LINE TV (Taiwan), QQ and kugou.
