The Roller-Coaster Life of Nicholas Tse

Want to know more about the bad-boy in English?


SquatMag has an all-English interview with Nicholas Tse Ting-Fung as well as a podcast if you always wanted to know a bit more about this HK heart-throb in English.

Despite winning a fair few (music awards) in his time, Tse doesn’t have a high opinion about the Hong Kong music industry being so focused around industry awards. He stands by his words by refusing to attend ceremonies.

“It’s bullshit,” he says simply.

“Having me sing 55 seconds for getting an award. Or not getting an award only because I did not attend the ceremony. Is that fair? If I wanted to get an award, I’d go and sit there for hours and I would get up to four awards per ceremony.

“I see that as a pain in the ass sitting in what I call a butcher’s market. Everybody is on sale. All artists are on sale.”

Tse refuses to play the fame game, and tells those who believe that his marriage to Cheung, in 2006, was a publicity stunt to “go to the church, and just kill yourself there”.

He’ll always be the kid hawking Fairwood to us though!
