Fact: Time Out Hong Kong has never interviewed the 24-year-old Hong Kong princess of pop before. Another fact: we have now. We’ve shared popcorn and pop lyrics with the stunning singing sensation at a studio in Chai Wan ahead of our exclusive interview, which comes out in the next issue of Time Out on Wednesday July 27. Read about GEM’s upcoming movie with Avril Lavigne and Ashley Tisdale, as well as her plans for a new tour, new songs, a birthday photobook and even a moving documentary on her life which should be out ‘soon’. She also answers her critics and tells us how she’s amazed that different fans across the globe respond to her tracks in totally different ways.
Our upcoming issue is also our Olympics issue as our Hong Kong medal hopefuls head over to Brazil with fire in their bellies. And it’s fitting, really, as GEM is also taking on the world with her new projects, new style and new attitude. She even wishes our athletes all the best in the interview. So here’s hoping both GEM and the Olympians all end up as heroes on the international stage. Either way, it’s time to Get Everybody Moving. Don’t miss our next issue!
