叶倩文苦练拉丁舞 不顾忌拿年纪开玩笑

新浪娱乐讯 北京时间7月20日消息,据香港媒体报道,天后叶倩文(沙丽)将于9月重踏红馆舞台,爱管事的她事事都要管,笑称要怪就怪自己,自己会有骨头承担一切。年届50的叶倩文苦练拉丁舞自我挑战,还勇于拿年纪开玩笑:“现在做完一天的运动膝头都伸不直,个唱捱到2个半钟已经是好大突破!”

50岁的沙丽愈唱愈强,久违舞台的她前年拿“金针奖”时,依然能唱能跳得表现一流,难怪阔别红馆7年的她,技痒难耐想在9月再开演唱会。她说:“我好想唱歌,好想念舞台和观众,我这人好奇怪,吃东西永远那几样,不喜欢宁愿饿晕不吃。唱歌反而要停一停,想见识下其他生活。”

为突破不怕冒险

这次开个唱,她希望跟观众过一个开心的晚上,她说:“这次主题是完全是你,7年前演唱会,唱到最后一首歌忍不住哭,完秀后觉得好失落,好似失去男朋友一样,要过一排才不心痛,但经过这么多年之后,就会好想念观众,好想请观众回家(舞台)聊天,过一个开心的晚上。”

勇于拿年纪开玩笑

叶倩文是个很有主见的人,凡事爱亲力亲为,因此演唱会都事事要理:“我要看住整件事,要坏就自己背,好就未必是我一个,可能要靠好多人帮手。”问演唱会有什么突破?她拿自己的年纪开玩笑:“突破就是要冒一个险,这样的年纪捱到两个半钟已经好突破,现在做完一天运动,回到家膝头都伸不直,和年纪好有关系,哈哈。”

学拉丁比学京剧还难

要求高的叶倩文,对自己从不马虎:“这次演唱会我会跳拉丁舞,学了两个月,真的好要命,比学京剧还难。”她还自爆糗事:“5年前和朱玲玲一齐学过,但被人笑我说跳得像划船似的,说得我好灰心,不过现在我会努力,承诺一定要跳得好。”(苗菲)

SALLY YEH GIVES HER ALL TO PRACTICE LATIN FOR HER SHOW

The Queen of Pop Sally Yeh will come back to stage at the Hong Kong Coliseum this September. As someone who loves to take things into her own hands, she admitted she’s in charge of everything, and said she’s willing to be held accountable and be responsible for the decisions she makes. At 50 years old, Sally took on the challenge to practice Latin for her show, and she doesn’t mind joking about her own age: “Right now after I get back home after doing one day’s exercise, I cannot even straighten my knees… to endure a 2.5 hours show would surely be a big challenge for me!”
At 50, Sally is only more enthusiastic with her singing. She was awarded the Golden Needle Award the year before last year; even though haven’t been singing for long, her singing and dancing performance at the Award Show were still of the top notch. No wonder after not having concerts in the Hong Kong Coliseum for 7 years, she answered this inner urge by coming back to stage again in this coming September. Sally said, “I really miss singing, miss the stage and miss my audience. I’m strange in this way; when it comes to eating, if there’s nothing that I love to eat, I would rather starve myself; but with singing, now and then I would want to have some rest for a while, to give myself the time to experience other things that life has to offer.”

IT’S WORTHWHILE TO TAKE A RISK
“I really hope my audience would have a good night at my show,” Sally said, “This time the theme of the show is ‘Intimately Yours’. 7 years ago, I cried after singing the last song at my concert, feeling this emptiness inside me, as if I’d lost my boyfriend; it took some time for me to let go of this feeling of heartache. But, after so many years, I still miss my audience; I really want to invite all of them back to our home (the stage) so we can enjoy a good night together.”
Sally is someone who knows for sure what she wants, and she loves to take things into her own hands, that’s why she’s in charge of every details of the show herself: “I need to know where things are at with everything… If anything goes wrong, I’m willing to be responsible for it; if it turns out good, it’s not something that I can accomplish by myself; it’s got to be the result of many people’s help and hard work.” When asked if there’s any big challenge for the coming show, Sally joked about her own age: “Well the one big challenge is now I need to take a risk. At my age, even to endure a 2.5 hours show is a challenge in itself. Right now, after I get back home after doing one day’s exercise, I would be so tired I couldn’t even straighten my knees. Age really plays a big role here, haha.”

DANCE OR ROW?
With such a high standard, Sally would always give her all in whatever she decides to do. She said: “I will be dancing Latin in this show. I’ve been practicing for two months, and it’s really not easy; it’s more difficult than learning to sing Peking Opera.” Sally also shared with us an embarrassing experience from the past, “I went to learn Latin dance together with Loletta Chu 5 years ago, but they told me my steps looked like I was rowing on a boat; I was really discouraged upon hearing such a comment. But this time I will simply do the best I can to dance well.”
