【Jolin接受美國告示牌專訪,談論LGBTQ+與新專輯方向】

Billboard:「你被譽為亞洲與台灣其中一位同志偶像,有什麼樣的感想?」
Jolin:「我很高興我能透過音樂來表達我所關心的事物。我並沒有刻意要成為任何特定族群的偶像。我想做的只有說一些我認為是對的的話來鼓勵某些人,這樣他們才會知道自己並非孤單一人。也期望能帶給他們一些正面能量,去影響其他在社群媒體上的人,變得更能產生共鳴。理所當然的,我對於能在這方面能產生影響感到非常榮幸。」

Billboard:「你時常在你的音樂事業中提及到你支持同性婚姻,也釋出了多部有LGBTQ+族群的情侶與圖像的音樂錄影帶與歌曲。是為什麼呢?」
Jolin:「我有許多 LGBTQ 族群的朋友與粉絲,許多音樂錄影帶和歌曲是用來分享他們人生中的真實故事和情感我把自己變身為一個平台,這些故事可以透過音樂來呈現,所以人們可以學習如何用平靜的態度來對待自己的感情或人生。每個人不論任何性別或性取向,都有自己的情緒起伏、淚水和笑聲。舉例來說,「不一樣又怎樣」就是我從陳正道導演口中聽來的真實故事。我聽到這個故事之後感到非常感動與難過,我非常希望我的朋友們不會需要再次去面對這種困難的處境。所以我把這個故事變成音樂以及音樂錄影帶,希望能讓人們去正視這難過的事情。我也希望這種令人心碎的故事不會再次發生。」

Billboard:「你呈現出LGBTQ+族群的歌曲和音樂錄影帶的點子是從哪裡來的呢?」
Jolin:「我有很多非常棒的同志朋友。我欣賞他們快樂與正向的態度、欣賞他們透過身體意識來聯合起來、欣賞他們是如何面對自己與他人的不同,也欣賞他們不停的大聲與自由的解放自己。我很羨慕他們,這也使我想要透過快樂的歌曲來解放人們壓抑的情緒。」

Billboard:「你對現今台灣與亞洲的 LGBTQ+議題有什麼想法?」
Jolin:「我感到很樂觀。透過全世界的新聞媒體與社群軟體廣泛的報導,就會有越來越多人專注於這個議題,並尊重少數族群的平等權利。就像婚姻平權、性別平權和LGBTQ+的平等權。我希望這世界能朝正義邁進。

Billboard:「台灣剛在五月成為亞洲第一個通過同性婚姻的國家。你的感受如何?」
Jolin:「在宣布通過的當下,我感到非常開心與驕傲。這很難相信,但是我們卻做到了。可是說實話,我的貢獻並不大。有非常多的組織與族群的人們花了數十年來爭取平權。對於他們的付出得到了回報,我非常的感動。我希望這樣的力量與勇氣能分享給更多人並讓人們看到充滿愛的世界。」

Billboard:「撇除音樂上的支持,還能怎麼表達你自己是LGBTQ+的同一陣線的人。」
Jolin:「我在現實生活中是他們一般的朋友,他們都是我非常重要的朋友。當他們有話想說時,我就會聽他們所說的並在他們的人生中支持他們。他們也是我人生的一部分,我也需要他們。」

Billboard:「「不一樣又怎樣」這首歌遇到了巨大的評論,也因為妳與林心如在音樂錄影帶中的吻而在新加坡被禁播,這個爭議有影響到你勇往直前的方式嗎?」
Jolin:「我尊重每個文化都有不同的思想,但是我不會因為這樣就在我的創意自由上限制自己。我依舊會驕傲的陳述自己的觀點。」

Billboard:「許多女歌手,像是瑪丹娜、雪兒、女神卡卡等人都成為LGBTQ+的指標人物和倡導者。你覺得自己是如何融入這些呢?」
Jolin:「這世界上有許多非常棒的人都替LGBTQ+發聲。我只是跟隨自己的心並做我想做的事。他們都是我人生中非常重要的人,所以我很開心我能為他們做些什麼。我不是因為是一位藝人而做這些。是因為我非常感激有這麼多人願意創造一個沒有不公平和歧視的世界。」

Billboard:「你一直都很公開的支持LGBTQ+,現在同性婚姻在台灣已經通過了,下一個會是什麼呢?」
Jolin:「雖然同性婚姻已經通過了,但是還是存在著許多的歧視。我希望我們可以更努力的去透過教育來宣揚對同性婚姻的正確想法。就像女性和黑人曾是受歧視的族群,而會產生這樣的不公平是因為有錯誤的想法與偏見我們可以宣傳正確的價值觀,讓人們去學習尊重與自己不同的人們。這也會鼓勵人們分享不同性取向、性別認同的人們不要感到害羞,去表達自己的身體,並有勇氣去真正的做自己。」

Billboard:「你下一個想做的是什麼呢?」
Jolin:「接下來我想做的是專注於新專輯的製作,我想談論到更多關於女性的事情。因為我近年來一直在探索一些與女性有關的社會和精神現象,所以現在我有很多想對女孩說的話,也想代表女性說些話。所以這就是我的新專輯的方向。」

C-Pop Star Jolin Tsai on LGBTQ+ Representation in Her Music: 'I Am Just Following My Heart'
[專訪][06-28] Jolin接受美國告示牌專訪,談論LGBTQ+與新專輯方向,蔡依林國際歌友會Jolin's Fans Club


Pop divas throughout history have often been prominent LGBTQ+ allies, and now it’s time to add Jolin Tsai to the list.

A reigning goddess of C-Pop, or Chinese popular music, Tsai has represented same-sex couples and diverse LGBTQ+ lifestyles through her bright pop releases, providing an outlet for diverse representation in the generally conservative Chinese-language music industry. Through provocative songs and music videos that promote self-love and understanding one another’s differences, Tsai’s become one of the most visible icons for LGBTQ+ people in Asia. (She's not alone: other C-pop stars, such as A Mei, have also used their music as an platform to promote LGBTQ+ rights.)

LGBTQ+ related images and people are often present in Tsai’s works -- gender roles were questioned in the video for “Dr. Jolin” while “Fantasy” depicted a flamboyant, rainbow-hued Garden of Eden overflowing with love -- and songs like “We’re All Different, Yet The Same" ("A woman and a woman mutually love one another/ It’s remarkable and yet common") have evoked controversy for depicting the realities of the hardships same-sex couples face without equal legal rights.

Over the years, Tsai’s been recognized for her work as a celebrity ally, so for Pride Month Billboard spoke to her via email about her career’s emphasis on love and acceptance for all.

How does it feel being considered one of Taiwan's, and Asia's, most popular gay icons?

I’m very glad that I can express things I care about through music. I don’t intend to become an idol for any specific group of people. All I want to do is to encourage some people by saying things I think to be right, so that they know they are not alone. Hopefully that can give them some positive energy and help them influence other people in society to become more empathetic. Of course, I feel very honored to have been able to make some impact in this aspect.

You've been very vocal about accepting same-sex love throughout your career, and have released multiple music videos and songs that show LGBTQ+ couples and iconography. What brought that about?

I have many LGBTQ friends and fans, and many of these music videos and songs were made to share their real-life stories and real emotions. I see myself as a platform, through which these stories can be told as songs, so that people can learn to treat relationships or live[s that are] differently from their own with a calm attitude. Everyone has his/her ups and downs, tears and laughter regardless of gender and sexual orientation. For example, the story of "We're All Different, Yet the Same" is a real-life story I heard from the director, Leste Chen. I was very moved and sad when I heard it. I really hope my friends will never have to deal with the same difficult situation again, so I turned it into a song and a music video, hoping this will make people face this sad reality. I also hope one day such heartbreaking stories can be stopped from happening again.

How do you come up with your ideas for your LGBTQ+-reflective songs and music videos?

I have many brilliant gay friends. I admire their cheerful and positive attitude, how they are untied from body consciousness, how they face the differences between themselves and others, and how they continue to express themselves loud and free. I envy them a lot. It also makes me want to liberate people from repressed emotions with upbeat songs.



What do you think of the state of feelings in Taiwan, and throughout Asia, towards LGBTQ+ issues?

I am optimistic about it. I think with the help of extensive media coverage by globalized news media and social media, there will be more and more people paying attention to and respecting equal rights of minority groups, such as marriage equality, gender equality, and equal rights for LGBTQ+. I hope the world continues to move in the direction towards justice.

You haven't just promoted LGBTQ+ lifestyles through your music, but also become a major advocate despite the Chinese-language music industry's overall conservative norms. Taiwan just became the first place in Asia to allow same-sex marriage in May, years after you first promoted the legalization. How did it make you feel?

The moment the decision was announced I was very happy and proud. It’s hard to believe but we’ve made it. But, to be honest, the contribution I made was really small. There are many organizations and groups of people who have been working hard for marriage equality for decades. I am very moved that their efforts finally paid off. I hope this power and strength can be spread out to make more people see the world with love.

Aside from your music, how else are you an ally for LGBTQ+ peoples?

I am simply their friend in life. They are all very important friends of mine. When they have something to say, I just listen and support them with everything in their lives. They are also a part of my life. I need them too.

"We're All Different, Yet the Same" faced immense criticism, and was banned in Singapore, for your kiss with Ruby Lin. Did that controversy have any affect on how you moved forward?

I respect that different cultures have different ways of thinking, but it won’t make me limit myself when it comes to creative freedom. I’ll keep expressing my opinions proudly.



Many female singers, like Madonna, Cher, Lady Gaga, etc., have become LGBTQ+ icons and advocates. How do you think you fit into that narrative?

There are a great deal of people in the world who are speaking up for LGBTQ+ people. I am just following my heart and do what I really want to do. They’re all very important people in my life so I am very happy that I can do something for them. I’m not doing it because of being a celebrity. That being said, I am very grateful that there are so many people who are willing to help create a world free of injustice and discrimination.

You've been a public ally for many years. Now that same-sex marriage is legal in Taiwan, what comes next?

Although marriage equality is now achieved, discrimination still exists in many people’s minds. I hope we can work hard together to spread the right idea of equal rights through education. It’s like women and black people have been among the discriminated groups, and this kind of inequality is caused by misunderstanding and prejudice. We can spread out the right values and make people learn to respect other people that are different from themselves. It will also encourage people who share a different sex[ual] orientation and gender identity from the majority to not be shy, to express their own bodies, and have the courage to be their true selves.



And, as for you what's next?

My next step is to concentrate on my new album’s production. I want to talk more about females. Because I have been exploring some social and mental phenomena related to females in recent years now I have a lot to say to girls. And I also want to say something on behalf of women. Therefore that’s the direction my new album is [heading] to.
