Jolin appears in FOCUS on GONG France, PLAY World Tour DVD/BD ranks #2 for its 7th week !

Jolin made once again an appearance in a French show !

This interview is in Chinese with French subtitles this time, but I translated everything in English for you:

Voiceover: Regarded as the diva of Mandopop, Jolin Tsai is a multi-talented artist. Singer, dancer, composer, actress, and a real businesswoman, with almost 20 years of career and 13 albums, the woman who debuted at 18 years old has grown up.
Inspired by Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey or Kylie Minogue, compared to Britney Spears then Madonna, real performer on stage, performer of numerous characters in her MVs, but who is really Jolin Tsai ?
So it is in Taipei that we have been able to meet again the woman we already met in 2013 when she came to France.

Jolin : I debuted my music career with a contest which brought me into the label, and after two years, I started to diversify my dance moves, my styles. And by trying different things, I finally found a style that I like. I hope to hold even more concerts in order to have even more interactions with my fans.

Voiceover: Where does your inspiration comes from ? Whether musically or visually ? How do you prepare your performances ?
Jolin : My inspirations come from many, many different talents. At every album release, it’s the product of the collaboration of the best from each and every one. Composers, lyricists, producers, and choreographers. We give ourselves a subject, and everyone brainstorms to offer everything he/she knows. All this in order to achieve a performance. I am very pleased with the MVs I made, but they are not the work of only one person. It is the result of everyone’s work. I am just the one who has been put in the spotlight, actually. I hope they can give some kind of hidden power to my fans.

Voiceover: Speaking of which, can you recommend one of your songs to us ?
Jolin : Actually I would like to recommend a lot of my songs. But I think that the music should be combined with the MV. The song “Play”, from my last album, would be a good start. Because its MV has a lot of vibrant and colored images. The idea behind the song is also very interesting. That is why I will recommend to start with this song.

Voiceover: You have been able to collaborate with many artists, like recently with DJ Alesso. Could you tell us more about it ?
Jolin : In the first place I did not think I would have the opportunity to collaborate with these different artists, including DJ Alesso, and try different electro styles that I barely used until then.
But it was an amazing experience. See how the DJs and their producers work has been very rewarding. And I am very open to future opportunities. Very curious to see how they perceive me after I entered their world. It is something that I want to explore.

Voiceover: What memories do you have of the French audience ?
Jolin : I would really like to come back to France (to perform on stage) !
Last time, in 2013, the fans’ response has gone beyond my expectations. With social media talking about my performance. I am very happy that the audience still remembers me since then.
My concert was a bit small last time, it was more “intimate” with my fans. But I hope that when I will come back, it will be in a bigger venue.
I hope I will be able to release my new album this year and that my French fans will be able to listen to it through social media. But the ones who don’t necessarily know me as well, and that they will like it !

Voiceover : A slight flashback on your career, how would you assess these years ?
Jolin : Every year is different. And I am happy to see that I am evolving myself. I triumph over the one I used to be. It is interesting because pop music is about the person you are at the moment. And singing it fills you with fond memories. I think that when people listen to these songs, it takes them back to another moment. Where they were when they first listened to it.

Voiceover : And Jolin Tsai has not finished to take us back to these moments.
