IDOL CHAT

Prestige Hong Kong - - RSVP -

The star at­trac­tion at the Roberto Cavalli store was un­doubt­edly Timmy Xu. The 24-yearold singer, song­writer and ac­tor has a huge fan fol­low­ing (his tele­vi­sion show, aptly ti­tled, Ad­dicted, was a rat­ings bo­nanza across China).

You’ve been dressed by Roberto Cavalli for the oc­ca­sion. Tell us about your look.

I love it. I like to dress in con­trast­ing colours, like to­day, and what I’m wear­ing is very sharp and smart. I like the an­i­mal print.

What are your favourite ac­ces­sories?

I’m sporty, so this is very much my kind of event. I love sports shoes, I like the bright colours and pat­terns. You’ll usu­ally find me in sports­wear and sports gear.

What are you work­ing on cur­rently?

I’m work­ing on a film project. We’re shoot­ing in stu­dios in Shen­zhen — it’s a drama called Ping Pong and I play a ta­ble-ten­nis player. It’s re­ally a cel­e­bra­tory kind of film, we’re look­ing at the time when the Olympics were held in Bei­jing. Even off set, I en­joy play­ing ta­ble ten­nis. I fit the part per­fectly!

You’ve per­formed all around Asia. What’s your favourite arena or venue?

I can’t re­ally pick one lo­ca­tion. I like go­ing to dif­fer­ent places, dif­fer­ent coun­tries, meet­ing fans in ev­ery coun­try. I like to ob­serve their cul­ture and learn about it. I love that part of travel — ex­pe­ri­enc­ing places I’ve never been to be­fore.

What’s been your best fan en­counter?

When I’m in con­cert, when I’m singing and the fans par­tic­i­pate, that’s an amaz­ing feel­ing. When they sing along or when they put their lighter or flash­light on from their phone – I get chills! It’s very touch­ing.
