副总裁的回应 Reply from VP v1268

Paul Chan 在新报对梁家班的7位艺人作出侮辱性的形容后,这个就是他给我们的解释。
After insulting 7 J Team Artistes, this is the reply from the VP.


看了新传媒品牌和宣传部副总裁陈国明的解释,很多朋友告诉我,这个就是我们这行必须接受和忍受的事实,当惯了王,很容易目空一切的。我解释,新传媒里面的副总裁多数都很谦虚也很有大机构官员的风范,毕竟要升到这个位子,没有智慧是不行的。
After reading the explanation from Mediacorp's VP of branding and promotions, many of my friends told me this is part and parcel of what we have to accept and tolerate if we were to stray in this industry. It's easy to be overly conceited once you are used to being high up on the branch. But my reasoning would be, most of the VPs in Mediacorp are very humble and have the demeanor of high ranking officers in MNCs. After all, without wisdom, you can't make it up to this position.

副总裁侮辱了我的艺人然后叫我不要生气,说他是开玩笑的,还叫我把这事当宣传,在这里我要告诉副总裁,梁家班在电视台以外的活动都有自己的宣传方式,还不需要他来告诉我如何宣传我们的艺人,除非是新传媒的电视节目。
After insulting my artistes, this VP tells me not to get upset, saying it's only a joke. He even tells me to take this as publicity. I'd like to tell this VP here, that outside of Mediacorp, J Team has our own set of publicity activities. Therefore, we don't need him to tell us how to pull off publicity for our artistes. Unless it's a program by Mediacorp.

梁家班和新传媒一路走来少说也有十八年,间中的风风雨雨,我们饮水思源,继续保留同一阵线共同进退,这不是在讨功劳只是要告诉无知的人,我们的奉献,来到今天的关系是经过严格考验的,身为新传媒的合作伙伴,我们互相分享资源、艺人、经验和创意,这种合作关系是很难得的我们一直很珍惜,陈国明副总裁没考虑他人感受的评语,已经深深的伤害了对演艺表演准备做出奉献的梁家班新人。
There has been at least 18 years of collaboration between J Team and Mediacorp. We've weathered quite a few storms, but we also show gratitude by staying on the same side of the line and work towards a common goal. We're not asking for credits here, but we need to tell the ignorant, our contribution, and close working relationship, till date, have gone thru rigorous test of time. As a partner of Mediacorp, we share resources, artistes, experiences and creativity. This sort of working relationship is very rare, and we've always cherished. VP Paul Chan's senseless remarks have deeply hurt J Team's new artistes who've been all ready to start their career in the acting industry.

还有,我身为新加坡艺人公会的艺术顾问,对于他用“7月歌台的歌星”来形容梁家班的艺人深表关注。7月歌台的艺人是一份靠演艺才艺和劳力赚钱的职业,是一份正正当当的职业,为社会做出不少贡献,包括这次的癌症基金筹款,他们也发挥了他们的影响力,副总裁拿“7月歌台的歌星”来形容5位艺人,呈现了一个明显的贬意,我作为一个前7月歌台艺人和现任新加坡艺人公会的艺术顾问有权力进一步了解副总裁这句话的实质含义,以免日后让歌台艺人有所误会。
Also, as a committee member to Singapore's Artiste Association, I am very concerned by his comments & comparison of J Team artistes to "those girls who sing at seventh month getai shows". Seventh month artistes are a group of people who depend on their talents and skills to earn a living. It's a clean and proper profession. They are contributing to the society, and that includes the recent cancer foundation fund raising event. They have used their influence. The VP has used the term "seventh month getai girls" to describe 5 of our artistes, and quite obviously those are disparaging remarks. As a former seventh month getai artiste myself, and now committee member to the Singapore Artiste Association, I have the right to probe further into those remarks that the VP passed, so as to prevent future misunderstandings that may arise form getai artistes.

我们吸收7位女艺人进入梁家班当然是有我们自己的计划,从来也没有想过要模仿新传媒的7公主。成立了强片制片厂(neo studios)后,我们拟定的艺人路线,有我们自己的商业考量,不分青红皂白就直接形容我们7位艺人是便宜的冒牌货,这个形容,单单用开玩笑来解释,是难以信服的。
We definitely have our own plans for the 7 artistes that we have recruited, and we have no intentions to "copy" Mediacorp's 7 princesses. With the creation of Neo Studios, we've prepared the future of our artistes, in line with commercial values and considerations. Having made remarks and comparisons of our 7 artistes to "cheap branded fakes" without even understanding the entire situation, and then passing off those description as "a joke", is simply very lame and not convincing.

我希望陈国明副总裁,身为一个发言人,请尽快出来为自己发言,我相信我的网友读者还有受伤害的艺人和他们的家人都很想听到一个像样和具有说服力的解释.
I hope that VP Paul Chan, as a spokesman, can step forward and clarify for himself. I believe my blog readers, as well as those artistes and their families who were hurt by him comments, would really like a decent explanation from him.

I think that's a very sick joke. No Snr VP goes around insulting people saying they are cheap goods, and then coming back to say he was only kidding. That cover up news report is just too lame.

双 木 小 美 said...

我觉得那副总说得再难听,只要你旗下艺人的作为能让对方折服,何必在乎对方妒嫉的眼光批评?我看过那7宝贝,老实说单看外表并不怎么特别出色或才华,但是有哪个艺人天身下来就是吃这行饭的.蔡依玲出道婴儿肥到现在天后身份,谁能用她以前的外表估到她现今能发展如此成功..

Melody said...

雖然我很想知道 當初在報紙上寫的整個內容真是副總裁所說 還是報社也加入了記者本身的想法呢? 做回應 又是真的看了報導在回應 還是... 整個或許不管對新傳媒的人 或者整個J TEAM 而且 其實不管怎樣... 都傷到了...我實在不知道之間到底存在多少的BAD 但希望盡快平息吧!

wah! looks like i missed out on a lot of news lately. so, some mediacorp vp insulted uncle jack's girls eh? why like that? no one is born to act. everyone has to start from somewhere. this vp, backside itchy, nothing to do is it? or mouth never wash ah? why must critise ppl until like that?

仔细想了一想,个人觉得媒体或许有挑拨离间之嫌,问的问题,方法是可以影响答案的。

如果做访问的人问Paul Chan 怎么看待梁志强抄袭你的idea,Paul Chan当下或许觉得不爽,那个comment就出来了。而您是不是真的抄袭,Paul Chan 未必知道。可是,这么巧有7宝贝,难免让人有此感觉。而7宝贝是媒体自己炒出来,故意跟7公主做比较的吗?是的话,那媒体就在炒新闻。

你讲的对,7月歌台的他的言语中带有贬低的意思,他应该对自己的言语不当而道歉。

猫猫 said...

是啊。。。这位副总裁怎么说话不经大脑的呀?居然还跟你说是开玩笑的!我说他才是最大的 JOKE 呢!!!

Princess Carol said...

Personallhy, I think this person is very irresponsible. Not fit to be the VP of Mediacorp. He had indeed hurt these young aspiring artistes very badly with his remarks. And now he says it's a joke. I think he's the one big joker here. I wonder if Mediacorp is saying anything at all?

Because it seems that he not only insulted the 7 young ladies, he has also insulted the intelligence of Director Neo and his team of professionals, as well as insulted the getai artistes.

These unfortunate remarks that he had made is very disturbing actually. How are we then to nurture budding artistes from young in the future if he were to get away with making remarks where young artistes are cheap fake goods?

如果他做出一些正面的解释就算了,说了不负责任的话后然后说是笑话?
我桶你一刀再和你说我是开玩笑的这样可以吗? =_=

冉冉來看梁導了,冉冉覺得副总裁应该出来解释这件事情,这句话不是用开玩笑就可以解释通的问题,作为一位有身份地位的人,敢说但是不敢澄清或作解释的话,那冉冉认为他是个懦夫,是个不折不扣的懦夫,这里面也不排除那些媒体在里面加料,所以冉冉觉得可能双方面都有原因吧!~梁导您尽管放心您旗下的艺人,因为他们也不会因为这些毫无根据的话语,而失去对自己的信心,他们会更努力加倍的做到最好,证明给那些人看!~事情总会雨过天晴的,当然冉冉觉得越快越好了!~

YS Studio said...

太幼稚的玩笑了吧?我认为他说开玩笑是在没有其他办法可以解释他的话语而说的。。。但这个理由也未免太瞎了吧。。。

Dan said...

It is really something uncalled for especially from somone of high management level. Given a chance to redeem himself, he chose to brush it off lighly.

What your girls can do is to debunk this condescending assertion! Unleash their potentials, expose them to pick up more talents.

Anonymous said...

ya lor! mr neo, prove to them you got more than just these 7 girls. j team so big, of course got more than just 7 young girls only hor? show mediacorp you got more, mature and sexy ones oso. if he says yr girls like getai singers, then show him, his girls are not even near getai singers. and maybe u can take this opportunity to sign up more babes! ahaha... bigger age range... up to as old as lzb type! ahahaha... but mr neo, we all stand up for you!
