Jay Chou has been dating Hannah Quinlivan for 4 years, and has finally decided it’s time to get married. Quinlivan is an Australian-Taiwanese mixed race model. In Chinese, she is called Kūn líng (昆凌). She is 14 years younger than Chou. Chou says he wants to be married by January. Quinlivan was not well-known by the public before hanging out with Chou.
Chou has stated before that he seeks to be married before 35. But now he’s going on 36. He has yet to formally propose, and has even stated that Quinlivan is just a friend, when dogged by reporters in the past.
Jay Chou is the highly inventive singer-composer who has been trailblazing his brand of pop music throughout Asia. He found fame in 2000 with his first album, Jay. Since then, he has been the sole vanguard for a signature music blend of Western techniques and Chinese traditional styles. He sings Mandarin Chinese pop music, known as Mandopop.
Chou has also held notable acting roles. His first lead role was in the street racing film, Initial D. The film was a huge success in Asia. Chou broke into Hollywood by playing Kato in The Green Hornet, in 2011. He has also directed music videos and films, and even written a book.
Despite being multi-talented, Chou states that he remains focused on music…and perhaps women. Will marriage slow down Chou’s whirlwind work schedule? Or will it bring new inspiration and maturity to his next projects? Well, he hasn’t even proposed yet, so let’s keep watch.
