    You don't understand what this is all about. Its not about his singing to begin with. Its an alternative to main stream entertainment. Believe it or not, nowadays people like to see others making a fool of themselves on T.V. Look at the amount of reality T.V., that's where the audiences are. So is the money.

    You think he don't know he sucks in singing? You think those who market him didn't know that already? Of course they know and they are milking every cent out of this.

    What he does is not of any interest to me but I'd like to see things in perspective and not condemn it in all. There's a market for what he does so he does it. Its that simple. If you don't like it, just ignore it. Equally simple. Sometimes we tend to judge others with our own set of standards. Very often, that results in biased and even skewed perspectives. I guess that's human too......

    william hung makes big $$ HIS way. nothing wrong with that, he din't rob nor steal. the $$ offers keep pouring in and all he has to do is to be HIMSELF.

    he's milking it all in pretty well, all the $$ from the advertisers and the media people..

    are u making as much $$ out of being a 'serious and solid' employer/employee?


    needless to say, he's having the last laugh and the joke's on us all.

    Looking at all the threads, here's something you ppl won't believe...
    I have a friend who thinks William Hung's singing is great! Bought the CD and stuff.
    There is most definitely a market for him as he's the first lousy performer ever to make big bucks. In fact, he's the only lousy performer to have ever made big bucks or IMO to ever make big bucks in the future. Thats what makes him so unique. Got to at least accord him some respect for being the most thick-skinned person that ever existed.
    Actually come to think of it, there were professionals called jesters that made a fool of themselves as part of their job in the middle ages. Highly in demand.

    Anyway, just to check. Given a million dollars, who would make a fool of himself in front of the entire world?

    I don't agree that EVERYONE in Singapore is a diehard fan of William Hung. My mother simply finds him revolting.

    I don't dislike him (he hasn't done anything to me), neither do I like him nor his singing "talent". He's just an opportunist and he happened to be there at the right time.

    dont take things so seriously dude...
    the reaction of his supporters here in singapore is considered tame compared to what his american fans are doing....
    beautiful women want to be his wife, some want to have his baby... others want to be involved with anything he does, etc.
    relax lah, there are certainly worse entertainers in the industry but none had his courage and humility.

    I think the reason there seems to be this backlash is that our friend William Hung was able to make 1000s of $$ by doing nothing.

    I mean, let think about it this way, if this guy was just a joker in the media, playing up the so called chinese stereotypes of being a slit eyed, awkward person who speaks funny, no one would bat an eyelid! Let's face it people, the foreign media (or at least sections of the US Film making industry) look at chinese as either gangsters or coolies or an old mystic shifu or some superhero's hapless sidekick.

    The reason we are so peeved is that WH is earning the moola...and we're not.

    Having said that though, I do think its sad that he is willing to be laughed at and made a fool of for a few extra digits in his bank account. My pride definitely wouldnt be worth a few extra thousands of dollars.

    Just my not fully objective 2 cents worth.

    Hehe, if william is your brother, and knowing the amount of moola he'll bring home, I don't think you'll kick him out of the house. Even if you do, I doubt he'll mind.

    To be frank, I won't mind to be a fool in front of the entire world for just half a million, even if it's just SGD.

    This can only happen in America. The agency is using him to earn big bucks. He may not be able to sing but in every country he goes to he will have his fans. That is money to the sponsors, agent etc. These are the real blood suckers using him to make money. The sad thing is that he is being laugh at.

    i would agree with that, one has to admire the courage of this little underdog to give it all that he has got at his "one shot at fame"

    but he has ended up on the wrong end of the scale of pop idol to pop joke. but he seems to be enjoying himself. dude is a from berkley, so he ain't stupid, he's probably making more cash in a week than most of us do in a year!!

    america... the land of opportunity!!!

    the dude has put on like 10kg!!! dude... celebrity life too good man!!

    Guess everyone has his say...either you like him or hate him. He (William Hung) is an entertainer coming at at the right time having the right opportunity and best of all earning big bucks for something no one ever though of. It proves the point that in anything we do, as long as there is a right opportunity, it will mean something.

    Its just a matter of time people accept him. Just like Jack Neo when he was Liang Po Po then or Liang Si Mei, but does he earn like WH? No. But he is also being laugh at and we (well maybe not all) respected him in some ways for his talent.

    Just like in the Buy and Sell Forum....Willing Seller...Willing Buyer. In this case... Willing Entertainer...Willing Audience

    So I guess calling another fellow Chinese sick(I find him normal for what he does) in public makes you, erm, not sick?

    Default hmmm ...

    well, there should not be such a tread on hung the person, the more we discuss abt him, the more credits/or not we are granting him, to each his own... just concentrate on photography ... but enough said to this tread, i WILL NOT waste my effort on him and his issues ... Let's get back to photography ...
