Jolin wins Song of the Year and Album of the Year at the 2019 Golden Melody Awards ! / Jolin remporte les récompenses Chanson de l’année et Album de l’année aux Golden Melody Awards 2019 !

🇫🇷 Version française page 2.

🇬🇧 Last night, the 2019 Golden Melody Awards were held in Taipei, Taiwan !

Jolin was nominated in 7 categories, and won an award in two of them:

Album of the Year Award*
UGLY BEAUTY – WON

*This category has no language limitation, every album nominated in every “Best Album” category (Mandarin, Hakka, Taiwanese, Aboriginal) was nominated in this one.

“Thank you to the fans who’re shouting out for me. I never think I can become one of the excellent albums. I wanna thank my team. When making this album, I explained a lot about what I want to express. All the years, this is the album that I spend the most time to understand me. As a female, when you have an opinion, you want to say something from your heart, you need to say it bravely, make your decision bravely. This is what I’ve found in this album, my true self. Thank you to Tom Wang and Rain Hsu from Eternal. When making the album, we are supporting, encouraging each other and exchanging opinions. I cant believe I’m in this career for 20 years, thank you Ms Ke for believing in me and has given me lots of resources. Thank you, my friends, for giving me lots of support, and my fans thank you! Also my team, I felt sorry for Grass Jelly Production for not getting the Best Music Video. They spend maximum effort on me, really thank you all of them behind the scenes. And also my production team, Razor Chiang, Howe Chen, Starr Chen, OZI, they’re really supporting me, I truly thanks them for real. Thanks! I love y’all!!!!!!”

Jolin Tsai, acceptation speech for Album of the Year
English translation by jolinmuse@Twitter

“Ugly Beauty was unique in its style. Taiwanese society has experienced different kinds of sorrow over the past year. A lot of albums have expressed it in a melancholic way, but Jolin Tsai’s album healed the public in an entertaining and enjoyable way. It took the jury two rounds of voting to declare “Ugly Beauty” Album of the Year.”

陳珊妮 Sandee Chan, President of the Jury

Song of the Year Award
玫瑰少年 Womxnly – WON

“Really thank you Razor Chiang and my scandal internet friend Ashin, this song is full of life. Thank you Hou Chi-Jian (Director of the Yeh Yung-Chih documentary from PLAY World Tour and of We’re All Different, Yet The Same MV), for introducing me the story of Yeh Yung-Chih. Yeh reminds me that in any situation, I might be the minority. Making me be more empathy to love everyone around me. This song is dedicated to him and also everyone who thinks that you got no chance or no one chooses you. You must remember, you choose yourself, support yourself! Thank you!”

Jolin Tsai, acceptation speech for Song of the Year

  • 玫瑰少年 Womxnly MV story version has not been filmed yet, they’re waiting for the right script.

Jolin releases a Dance Video for 玫瑰少年 Womxnly ! / Jolin sort une Dance Video pour 玫瑰少年 Womxnly !

🇫🇷 Version française page 2.

🇬🇧 It was announced only yesterday that a dance video would be provided for 玫瑰少年 Womxnly !

Jolin explained why she decided to release a dance video before the official MV:

“When I first started writing (the song), I wanted to show the beauty of my body. When I heard the arrangement, my body could not help but sway. It made me enjoy dancing in an instant. It’s like the body is emitting the language it wants! Love yourself is respecting your body’s intuitions and reactions. “

Jolin Tsai

She asked Ryan Parma, a director from LA who already collaborated with Korean singer CL for Hello B+tches, to film the dance video.

It took 10 hours to film Jolin and her 14 international dancers in a sequence shot (long take). They rehearsed for 3 days before the shooting.

The meaning of 玫瑰少年 Womxnly‘s lyrics is only expressed by the choreography.
The dance video is also showing Jolin’s acting and performing skills !

Director: Ryan Parma / Choreographer: Kiel Tutin
Making with comments in English by director & choreographer

Jolin expressed her gratitude on Instagram to the dancers, choreographer, and director:

This new video provided once again an English translation for foreign fans, you can check it out by clicking on CC in the video or here:

This translation has been made for Jolin’s team by Bingo Bilingual ! They also provided previously a translation for 怪美的 Ugly Beauty MV.

Finally, screencaps from the dance video are now available as well !
