2 days to Sin concert

Alrite now that I calmed down & read & watched his Shanghai press conference, it does seemed he has been misquoted as usual. The media said he is coming back to say goodbye again, well that's bullshit. He never said goodbye during the first Shanghai concert. He said that after the tour of 123 We are Wooden Men concerts starting in Shanghai, he will be temporarily departing so Shanghai was not his farewell concert. Watch this great interview where he looked heavenly & explained everything. He also nvr said that he will dance but that during the disco medley he will be 'shaking' along with the rest.
He has decided to return to Shanghai, technically his 'home', cos of the constant calls from his fans to stage another concert. In this vid of the press conference, you can see him turning again & again to DTFC when answering questions. He is just so adorable that I fell in love with him all over again, yeah I kinda weird & contradictary that way *sigh* I know, understand & accept that he is not perfect but in my heart I still want him to be my perfect idol. I think this concert is his thank you gift to his DTFC fans whom he is forever grateful for supporting him without fail all these years. For them, he will be singing a medley of the songs in his album that he never sang before in concerts like Do I Do I & Say Goodbye -- lucky Shanghai fans *_*
The media reported that he said he finished only 30% of his movie script. He most certainly didn't say that. He said that while completing half of the script, he went back & found that 30% was not right so he deleted it & wrote again so in the end he is still left with half of the script completed. Anyway the media misquoted & took his words out of context so it appeared as if he is not fulfilling his promise to 'retire' from music to film a movie. Most comical is that they always like to write that he is 'following' Jay Chou to write & direct a movie but now they are writing sarcastically that after 3 years of saying he will film a movie, he still has not. So how can he be following Jay if he already said he want to direct a movie 3 yrs ago? So even the media has to eat their words too ^__^ Anyway thanks to ladiadom who said:
nah, i think he's just under loads of pressure. to me, it's his way of setting goals and high standards for himself so that he'll be psyched to work towards them. i also feel that he's bounded by contract to do all these distracting stuff and it's really frustrating that he's to fulfill all these commitment before he can focus on his true love. Making music and movies. Look, he's only human. and based on his track record, I believe he can deliver. forgive his what appears to be senseless rambling sometimes; it's actually a facade for his deep anxiety and fears. 4/17/2008 11:05 PM
Yeah, you are rite. One should not forget that David is still under contract to his record company & sponsors who own a piece of him. I has forgotten that I always admire his working mentality where he tends to try to compromise & balance with what he wants to do with the demands of his bosses. He also tries his best to give his fans what they want from him too. I guess everyone wants a piece of him & he must be under a lot of stress. So we must give him lotsa love & encouragement & not try to criticise him all the time *slap myself*

As being a supportive fans of DT, I am neva demanding to him. He is a human too! I think we all should not take too serious on the press and media.. As what he said, sometimes, Artists need do something they dun want to.. ya know what I mean.. coz its the commerical world and he just tried the best to cope with it. Besides, if no one like him/ his music, why he can still open concert in shanghai?

Agree with you ladidadom..=)
Ideally, DT should have the artistic freedom to take his time and work based on inspiration. Unfortunately, the commercialised world demands instant results and gratification. That is very pressurizing, but I trust David will deliver his best in whatever he does.

Anyway, looking forward to his sg concert tmr!

Zhaodi r you going tmr?=)
