After winning Best Male Singer at the 13th Annual Chinese Music Awards; collective of CCTV, Channel V, and SMG, Eason Chan did a Q&A.
Q: After winning this award is there anything specific you want to say?
A: Every award is a form of encouragement, there are many other better singers than me, I am very lucky to have support from Channel V and SMG. Everytime I win an award it is an opportunity for me to thank those that I want to thank.
Q: You have one song that fans are discussing over the internet. They say the song is expressing Gigi Leung and Ekin Cheng’s relationship. What do you think about that?
A: I cannot stop anyone from thinking the way they do, but I don’t feel the song is expressing their relationship. It was after I finished singing the song that I realized the song was about a break up. I am a little slow, I understand the lyrics to a song slowly. Thank you for discussing my song.
Q: This year you are the only Hong Kong singer that at the Chinese Music Awards, do you feel left out (no one to talk to)?
A: I do not feel left out. Lee Hom, Jennifer Li, whom I haven’t seen in 9 years, and I are had a lot of fun backstage. Hong Kong listeners are very busy, but I hope next year they will be more active with the Chinese Music Awards.
