蔡依林 Jolin Tsai《怪美的 UGLY BEAUTY》

Recommended Posts




Been enjoying this recently. Obviously I get its not to everyones taste, but an interesting watch nonetheless. I thought I'd share the song, as 蔡依林 is 周傑倫 level of influential in c-pop, and I was asking around what '怪美‘ is supposed to mean, to mixed response. It seems to just be 怪 as in the 挺,非常 meaning, which then led into conversations on whether 怪 in this context is meant to be 褒義 or 貶義. Ended up reading some interesting stuff on usage of 怪.


Anyway, nothing too serious, just thought I'd share for any interested
