Jay Chou busy with filming movie and making albumJay Chou with his mother Ye Hui Mei

A few days ago Jay Chou was interviewed by "milk" magazine, he stated he handled all the little and big things in his new album "12 New works", he was both the headmaster and bell ringer in a sense, but to be honest he has his hands full, "I've been doing a lot of things that I don't need to do, but I can't trust it with anyone else."

He can have inspiration at any time, he hopes anyone with him can take that and bounce ideas back, the ones who have the best chemistry with him is his makeup artist and Vincent Fang, "Like when I said I wanted hip hop that was very like rice pudding or like farmers, my makeup artist can grab onto this concept image." Once he gets a good chemistry going with someone, he doesn't change people easily, a majority of his staff have been with him since he debuted.

He releases an album every year, recently he has been directing and starring in his own movie "Rooftop", he made his album and worked on the post production of the movie at the same time, every day he gets home at 5 in the morning, he continues to learn new instruments, "Actually I have my hands full, I have to sacrifice a lot of sleep, I split it between many different jobs, as long as everyone can see the effort put into each piece of work, I don't think about getting tired."

On the day of filming the magazine cover, he brought his mother along, he took the chance to get some parenting time in, he said, he works over 10 jobs, he has different positions and roles, the one he pays most attention to is being a son, "I care most about what my mother thinks, when I'm writing I ask her for her opinion, to see if she likes my songs, whether or not the MV is fun?"

Being a director, he looks to emulate Michael Jackson, in the past he anticipated Michael's new songs the most, repeating watching his MVs. He filmed MVs for every song, with budgets the same as movies. JVR said, he will be filming 12 MVs for his new album, there is no limit to the budget.

12 MVs will be great. Can't wait to see them all. I hope Jay will do something different from the mainstream pop videos. Maybe something darker, edgier, off the mainstream type, meaning no dancing girls, no sports cars, no boy-meets-girl boy-loses-girl drama, etc.

Maybe a video of Jay pumping iron would be nice. I'd love to see that. Get an idea of how he built his muscles.

Are you talking about this tracklist 点穴神功,森,仙人球,独角兽,摇滚星球,调酒师不喝酒 and 脱轨(not sure if this one is confirmed or not)? If so I think it'll be 摇滚星球 or maybe 调酒师不喝酒.

Honestly, those titles seem a little bit random for me XD
Can you guys predict which one gonna be ballad, or hiphop?

Easy!

Er, floating bubbles on the surface,
Make me think of you
Each bubble holds a memory of the time we spent together,
I see your face in every one.

But alas,
As the water drains down the tub
Our memories are washed away
As the last drop goes down
So does our love affair
Lost and gone forever.

How's that for a cheesy corny Bathtub song? :happy-laughing:
