Anita Mui Ever Changing Farewell Concert
Farewell Concert already had it’s
first show on Dec 23. “Man
Chu Sa Wah”
was the opening song for the show, it was so touching.
Then many beautiful songs followed
[Ever Changing Anita Mui Farewell Concert] had its first show on Dec 23, at Hong Kong Coliseum. Before the concert, she already declared she would be very hot and “let go” in the concert. How to let go? Only this already made people anxious to see the concert. It was known she would imitate Madonna in this show, but Madonna’s erotic, grade III style, how can Ah Mui be compared with her? Must go to the concert to see.
That night, Anita Mui started her concert with the touching song “Man Chu Sa Wah”. Then she asked the audience if the stage looked too narrow? This should not be the problem, because she would perform all her best songs with her heart to the audience
Beautiful songs, beautiful Anita, full of energy
Ah Mui tried to prove that she is good in singing and performing and she is beautiful, also full of energy. Her costumes were very tight made of very thin material, when she immersed in quick songs and hot dances, her bonny structured all displayed without reserve in the eyes of the audience. Madonna is best at self caressing, in her costumes, and rubbing her lower part of the body with male dancers. Ah Mui was really good in imitation, about 90% of Madonna. Audience could not help but giving her compliment by saying; [pornographic with taste]. Among all stage performance of HK singers, hers was most challenging, could be classified as 3rd grade erotic.
Mui said she would not imitate [double Yip], two together would not expose more
than 5 dots. She would expose 12
dots, really had to sing till 12 o’clock,
to let all her fans and supporters have satisfaction.
She was telling the truth, even her beloved students, Grasshoppers, Andy
Hui and Patrick Tam all performed whole heartedly.
Lai Siu Tin started a campaign on the stage, asking fans to plead Ah Mui to
change her mind, she stressed that it was after serious consideration that she
made this decision. She always
gives people the impression that she is tough, maybe this is the reason that she
is not married. After she retires
from the stage, she really has to plan for her future direction.
Getting no award, no regret
it seems she has no luck for award. She
failed to get the Best Actress Award in the Golden Horse Film Exhibition.
And she is not nominated as a candidate for the Health Image Competition.
On the contrary, both Andy Lau and Leon, though looked so withered, are
on the candidate list.
does this indicate? Ah Mui’s
life not healthy, or her popularity is going downhill?
feel regretted for not getting award (at least she can still keep herself calm
in front of others), she replied lightly: [To
join any competition has to be fated, to get nominated is a glory.
Whether getting the award or not is another matter.
Talking about competing for health image, I should not get it, if I get
it then it will be a real a surprise.]
Mui laughed at herself that she is sick all the time, also she has night life.
Moreover among all her changing images, witch girl, bad girl, all these
already left a clear impression to the audience, she gives them an impression
that she is not healthy, she didn’t
get nominated was expected.
feels that among all the artists, Olivia Cheng Man Ya is most healthy.
Olivia used to be the athlete of high jump record holder, even once
released portrait photo collection of herself, she
still gives people the fresh healthy look, nothing pornographic and she has no
rumors. She got married to her loved one not too long ago, she has a
happy family, she is the symbol of health.
It is a pity Olivia has not been nominated for this competition either.
many people are very healthy, Leon, Chow Yuet Fat, Liza all have regular life
with healthy thinking, they got selected, I feel the result of the competition
is very fair.]
After concert – good rest
Then can Ah Mui be reckoned as unhealthy? A very critical question.
be regarded as unhealthy, as my thinking is still very health, not dirty minded.
But after this concert, I will take a good rest.
For recording or playing for movies, I will be very strict for quality.
I have to try my best. In
the past I have spent too much time on singing, I feel pressure increased, so I
could not arrange all the things properly.
This is one of the reasons that I decided to back out from part of my
work, and be less hectic.]
Mui emphasized that it doesn’t
mean she won’t
touch music anymore after her concert, it only indicates that she will not
compete for any awards. On the
contrary, she will concentrate more in recording better songs for the music
will happen to the music industry and its annual award presentation after the
Big Sister declared not to take part in it?
the past, I would make some speculation too, but the actual situation changes
all the time, difficult to estimate. Once
I gave great hope to Chan Wai Hai and Faye Wong, but both went abroad studying.
In 1991, Andy Lau and Leon were most competitive, really very hard to
speculate. I feel if with quality then they can endure the test.
When the luck comes, will win naturally.
Otherwise even to have a glimpse of glory will still be very difficult.]
She doesn’t like to give any comment about the competition of Leon and Andy Lau in the music industry. In terms of private relationship, she knows Wah Zai better, not necessary to praise him or criticize him. On the other hand, it will be unfair to cast any comment on Leon
of the Soul – play 2 roles.
of the Soul”
got lots of compliment and the box office income was good too.
Ah Mui, being the leading female player, of course she is very happy.
Some said she only charged Wah Zai half price, as she still likes Wah Zai.
Even Wah Zai didn’t
ask her to take part in the film she would volunteer to offer herself.
Ah Mui doesn’t know to get mad or crack to laughter about this rumor, she said: [Am I
that cheap? Wah Zai sincerely
invited me to take up the role, how would I offer myself? But it shows that he found the right person.
It was very difficult to play in this movie.
I had to play 2 roles. When
we were rushing for the movie, I had to prepare for the farewell concert too.
Thinking about this, I should charge him more.]
Ah Mui never cares about money too much. She is only joking when she said she would chase after for pay. She and Wah Zai, won’t be too serious about money matter due to their relationship.
No one asks her to play grade III movies
Ah Mui has had the satisfaction of being the Best Female Actress, she wishes her career in filming will achieve another climax. [Yuen Lin Yuk], which was originally tailor made for her, brought the Best Actress Award to Maggie Chueng in the Gold Horse Film Exhibition. But she herself didn’t get any award for her “Au Revoir Mon Amor”.
Recently the market focuses on grade III movies. Yip Yok Hing becomes the sexy star. In comparison, Ah Mui, being so bony, with a goal to have breakthrough, gets lots of pressure from Yip.
Yuk Hing is really very outstanding, she can go completely nuke, it is a great
just compare with her. Maybe movie
investors know that I am not qualified for that, so they never ask me to shoot
for grade III movie. A few years ago, someone asked me to have my picture
collection taken under the water, the pay could be HK$3 million.
But I didn’t have time at time, and also didn’t
know how it would come out. If I
can physically train my body, and have time, I want to have a photo collection
of my health and sexy look.]
Denying about having love affair
Mui is very direct and out spoken, but she is conservative in some areas too.
She feels that there is difference between sexy photo collection and
being nude in a grade III movie, she is afraid that her future husband will not
natural she is asked about her love affair with Ben Lam.
No matter how hard she tries to deny she is dating, only admitting that
they can communicate and are good friends, but Ben Lam aggressively expressed
his love of her, that makes her dare invest in this relationship.
However, she still insists: [Don’t say that we are dating, when you talk too much, we will feel embarrassed. Dare not even talk to each other even we have something to say.]
Mr. Ben admits that one of the reasons why he works so hard is to please this lady. He must have enough capital before he can form a happy family. And hee must have this will fulfilled before 40.
Will Ah Mui marry him to form a family? She herself can’t guarantee. But she is working very hard towards this goal too. Her supporters, of course hope her dream come true, and a wedding in the near future.
