Jay Chou releasing personally written book in May
Jay releases one album every year, promoting on two shores three places flying here and there, he also films commercials, very busy, then has he got time to write a book? Before the two books that involved his pictures "Iron Box Of An Island", "One2Free Story Book", he didn't write a single word, but they sold well because of his image.
This time Jay wants to release his own book, but there's no way for him to write it personally, the publishers Vincent Fang have asked him to carry a recording pen, he himself can record down his own thoughts, then the publishing staff will type it out and give it to Director Chou to do the final checking, at least this way the contents of the story are what he wants.
In order to rise to the procession of being a author, recently Jay has often been urged to hand in his work, Jay can't help but smile grimly: "In the past it is me pressing Vincent Fang, now I have finally tasted the taste of being pressed, the pressure is very big!"
Till now, Director Chou has only completed 1/3 progress, Vincent Fang smiled saying: "In the past it is Jay who presses me for work, could never have thought there is a time when I press him." Jay then said: "The days of being pressed for work really isn't for the living."
In the past the musical collaboration, it has always been Jay composing the tune first, then Vincent writes the lyrics according to the melody, "Like this Jay's space for writing songs is very big, he can use a vigorous unconstrained style, but for me it's a bit more mind racking so usually it's him pressing my lyrics, the degree of how late I hand in my work will make Jay can't help but shout at me: Vincent, by the time you are finished writing the lyrics, I would already have finished writing the songs for my next album."
Sometimes Jay will "act like a big star" with Vincent saying: "First buy me fried chicken to eat, if not then I won't have any inspiration!"
