Celebrity Fashion: Taiwan's Jay Chou

10:44 AM Contributed by JW


So far we only highlighted fashion from the west,there is nothing much from the Eastern world. So here I would like to share with you the Pop singer from Taiwan, Jay Chou's fashion. Jay Chou (traditional Chinese: 周杰倫; simplified Chinese: 周杰伦) (born 18 January 1979) is a World Music Award-winning Taiwanese musician, singer, producer, actor and director. In 1998, he was discovered in a talent contest where he showcased his piano and song-writing skills. Over the next two years, he was hired to compose for popular Chinese singers. Trained in classical music, he combines Chinese and Western music styles to produce songs that fuse R&B, rock, and pop genres, covering issues such as domestic violence, war, and urbanization.


Chou's compositions are loosely categorized as pop music. While many of his works fall into contemporary R&B, rap, and rock genres, the term "Chou Style" (traditional Chinese: 周氏風格; simplified Chinese: 周氏风格) has been popularized to describe his trademark cross-cultural music and his insistence on singing with relaxed enunciation. Taipei Times once described the meaning of "Chou Style": "In what has become the archetypal Chou style, Taiwan's favorite son blends pop, rap, blues and a smorgasbord of esthetic elements of world music to create his dream-like never-never land".
