Japan Update [30 Aug 2001|09:03pm]

It has been confirmed that Elva's EP "Never Look Back" will be launched on the 7th of September in Japan. However, it will not be on sale in Taiwan. Her debut album in Japan will be launched on October, with the album's title yet to be confirmed. It'll contain an English song titled "Remember", with the lyrics being written by Elva herself.

A couple of months ago :
"At 21, Elva has the region at her dainty feet. Maybe even Japan, if Hikaru Utada's manager has his way. Impressed with her nifty showmanship, he has asked to work with the Taiwanese ingenue on an English album scheduled to hit Japanese stores probably in December."

Seems like Elva's ahead of schedule !!!

Real Name vs Stage Name [26 Aug 2001|06:37pm]

Many artistes have stage names that they use in showbiz. Like, "Hsiao Yaxuan" is also a stage name that Elva use. Her real name is actually Xiao Ya Zhi (hanyu pinyin). Apparently, a consultation with a fortune teller found that it was too 'soft', and insisted that a 'xuan' would ensure her meteoric rise in showbiz! Pretty accurate huh?

Stage name :
Real name : ֮

Old Article [12 Aug 2001|04:14pm]

Ok it's old .. but not everyone has seen it ;)

Very Chirpy Songbird

Jun 21, 2001

WHEN Taiwanese songbird Elva Hsiao (right) tells you she's talkative, she means it.

"Oh no, you're not taking up too much time," she told us in her fluent American-accented English over the telephone.

It didn't matter that we had gone 30 minutes over time, or that the 21-year-old had been doing endless telephone interviews earlier.

"It's okay, I'm not tired.

"You know, at first when people don't know me very well, they might think I'm really quiet.

"But after a while, maybe after talking to me for 10 minutes, they see that I'm more talkative than expected.

"I'm not extremely talkative or anything, I just have my own opinion and I'm not afraid to say what's on my mind."

And she added: "I know when to keep my mouth shut."

Like when she's getting her hair or makeup done?

Said Elva: "I haven't had enough sleep since I started singing, and sometimes I just nod right off when I'm getting my hair or makeup done.

"Then I suddenly wake up with my mouth wide open! It's so awkward and embarrassing!"

Meanwhile, watch out if you're a motor-mouth kind of guy, because Elva might strike you off her list of eligible bachelors.

She joked: "I don't like a guy who's too talkative. I can't have him cutting in when I'm talking to my friends, right?

"I've met some people who talk too much, but then I've never met anyone who's more talkative than I am!"

Still, don't think all this pretty girl can do is sing, talk and nod off.

She can also toss her jet-black tresses stylishly, so there.

She fits the bill as a Pantene spokesman but, er, is it all her own?

"Oh no, I had hair extensions!" (She had strands of hair woven in to make hers longer.)

And it means she can't wear it short for a while.

"I signed a contract with them, so I can't cut my hair for close to two years.

"But I like it long!

"I think it's better for the stylist. There's more room to be creative. And I can have more fun with it too!"
