Gay blogger comes out for Edison Chen

Gay blogger comes out for Edison Chen

China’s popular gay blogger Xia He (夏河) expressed his unbridled admiration for bad boy Edison Chen (陈冠希) on his microblog on Wednesday, attracting over 2,500 comments from netizens.

Calling Edison his “male god” (男神), the 28-year-old and handsome writer said: “I buy everything you endorse, watch all your films and, at KTVs, even if we don’t know how to sing your songs, we simply watch your music videos.”

“I was once so childish that I wanted to boycott your rumored girlfriends’ films/TV series. But then I discovered there’s nothing left I can watch.”

“I often bumped into your dad at pubs years ago, and thought about buttering him up so that I could meet you. When your sex photo scandal broke out, I argued with friends to show my wholehearted support,” he wrote in the post.

Edison’s manager said the singer-actor does not know about Xia’s love confession — as Edison does not read Chinese.

Well, we all know Edison has a peculiar taste for belles.

His businessman dad Edward Chen (陈泽民), on the contrary, is famous for dating pretty young men.

Edward is rumored to have had affair with mainland actor Hu Bing (胡兵); and was often spotted taking his young male partners to Thailand for vacations or back to his house for late-night parties.

So maybe this is why Xia He hesitated about whether he should sacrifice himself so as to get close to his idol?

While some netizens flatly said Xia cannot succeed as Edison is so straight, a netizen alias “Fay Fay “said, “Hard to say. He loves sex that much. He definitely doesn’t mind if it’s a man or woman.”

“Bunny” suggested, “Actually I think Edison can consider him, as he and Xia are quite a match.”

“Goodnight after dinner” told Xia, “Please conquer him for the sake of more 16-year-old girls’ first night.”

“First night” in Chinese refers to virginity.

Xia and writer Mai Luoluo (麦洛洛) were once a famous gay couple in Beijing. They broke up in November 2011.
