Taiwanese Mandopop singer Yoga Lin received criticism from Chinese netizens after he spoke up about the China-Taiwan trade pact two weeks ago. A few days back, he posted another message that appeared to contain a political message, raising the ire of Chinese netizens again.
On Saturday, he posted on Facebook a message titled 'The six friends that we must have in life', and wrote: 'Sand is useless, mud is useless, but when they are mixed together, they become concrete, and can be used to build a house. Petrol is a coveted good, and so is rice, but when they are mixed together they lose their use altogether. It doesn't matter if it is originally a useless or useful good; what matters is who you mix with.'
Many netizens felt that his message contained an implied meaning, and again called for him to leave China. Some even added: 'It's a good thing you broke up with (Hong Kong singer) G.E.M Tang, because you don't deserve her.'
On the other hand, his former girlfriend G.E.M's popularity has risen though after clinching second place at the 'I Am a Singer' competition in China. She declared on Weibo: 'In very good spirits'¦ Thank you Khalil Fong (with whom she collaborated with for her finale song 'In Summer'), for bringing such warmth and love to 'In Summer'. When I'm old, today is the 'Summer' that I will hope to return to.'

Mixed heritage model Mandy Lieu recently stepped into the film industry. In the film HORSEPLAY (DOH MA GEI) she played a cool killer. "In the film I keep chasing Brother Ka Fai (Tony Leung), but Wong Cho Nam would throw a lot of obstacles in front of me." She also revealed that Cho Nam added a last minute kiss scene, "I didn't know about it before hand, but I think the result would be pretty funny so it was added in the last minute."
Mandy admitted that the strong cast drew her to the film. "With such a cast, I wouldn't mind being even the background board. (Do you have any pressure?) No, they were very accepting of me." Would she be too busy to date? She said, "I welcome love very much, if I run into the right one I would even fight for it. (Will you get married in a flash?) I wouldn't eliminate the possibility, but I am not in a hurry to wed."
Ma Yili sent a text message to thank the magazine that revealed her husband's infidelity
Chinese actor Wen Zhang's adultery saga has seen new developments as it was revealed that his wife, actress Ma Yili, had sent a thank you message to the tabloid that exposed his two-timing.
Wen Zhang was recently revealed to have committed adultery with former co-star Yao Di. While the latter has completely hidden herself from public scrutiny, Wen Zhang engaged in a fiery verbal match with the editor of SE Weekly.
The night before, the actor took to his Weibo to denounce the magazine: 'If you want to play, I'll play with you, so don't drag other people into this! All I have is this life of mine; I'll go all the way with you guys!'
In retaliation, the editor revealed that Yili had actually sent a text message to thank them for exposing the adultery and saving her home from a broken fate, hinting that she was the mastermind behind the exposure. However, some netizens have questioned the authenticity of the text message.
Yili made no response towards the accusation, but her father unknowingly confirmed the fact that she had sent the message when he stepped up to protect his son-in-law.
Mr Ma asserted that his daughter was not the person behind the big reveal. He added that although this incident has dealt them a huge blow, they are willing to let bygones be bygones since Wen Zhang has expressed his remorse and returned to the family.
He explained that Yili was thankful for the media's attention on her husband, and not a particular publication. Doubting the intentions of the magazine that publicised the text message, he pleaded for ..... (article cut to save bandwidth)

The Chinese actress' husband Deng Chao denies that their marriage is on the rocks
Chinese actress Sun Li, who shot to popularity after starring in period drama The Legend of Zhen Huan, is rumoured to be facing issues with her marriage after she posted a message on Weibo that alluded to it.
In the post, she wrote: 'Goodbye romance; Goodbye marriage!' Though the post was deleted seconds after it was up, it was still seen by some netizens, who speculated that she may be facing problems with her husband Deng Chao, another popular Chinese actor.
Deng Chao's management responded on Monday, saying that Sun Li did not make such a post, and that it was a hoax.
The actress is expecting their second child, and is slated to give birth this June. On her husband's birthday, she even posted on his Weibo: '1 + 1 = 4', a sweet message that did not hint that their marriage is facing any problems.
Some netizens suspected that it could be Sun Li deliberately generating hype to promote her upcoming movie The Breakup Guru, for which she makes her directorial debut.
Another celebrity couple Bai Baihe and Chen Yufan also faced a similar issue, when documents alleging to their divorce were circulated on Weibo, sparking speculations that their marriage is on the rocks.
This enraged Yufan, who responded to the rumours. 'We are clearly framed. I can no longer keep silent on such a provocation,' he said, adding that he would take legal action.
Chinese actor Wen Zhang's extramarital affairs have caused many female stars to keep a tighter rein on their younger partners
After news of Chinese actor Wen Zhang's extramarital affairs got out (he was found to be cheating on his wife, Chinese actress Ma Yili, who is seven years his senior, a few days ago) many female celebrities with younger beaus have been cast in the media limelight on their reactions to the drama.
With regards to Wen Zhang's cheating affairs, reporters tried to ask 33-year-old Mandopop singer Elva Hsiao, who has been dating 22-year-old Kai Ko for two years, if she is worried that he may stray due to their 11-year age gap. While her management declined to comment, a source revealed that Elva â€œnever found age an issue.â€
Due to Elva's recent business venture for her fashion brand â€˜Carry Me' and her busy work schedule, the couple hardly spend much time together. Thus, they are very appreciative of the little time they have with each other, said the source.
Jolin Tsai, 33, and her model boyfriend Vivian Dawson, 27, have also been under much media scrutiny for their relationship. It was said that Jolin changed her perception on romantic relationships after her break-up with Jay Chou, and now she expects less from it. She even once said that â€œif the man strays, there's no point for the woman to force her expectations onto himâ€ and this attitude has only made her beau more sensitive to her needs.
Another Taiwanese diva, 41-year-old A-Mei reportedly showers plenty of affection and gives in unconditionally to her 35-year-old bar owner boyfriend, Sam. But when reporters queried both celebrities if they are worried of their younger boyfriends straying, both their managements have declined to comment on the matter.
