Jackie Chan is no stranger to weird headlines, whether about his K-pop band or love of Beijing’s smog. This time, however, he doesn’t want to be in the spotlight, after his cuddly greeting of a PLA singer at the Chinese People’s Political Consultative Conference blew up online.
These photos have been making the weibo rounds, with many accusing Chan of flirting-it-up with Song Zuying, the 47-year-old singer. Chan has asserted that this is all just a “fuss about nothing,” saying:
That day, I was behind her. She turned her head, saw me and said “Oh, it’s you.” […]
I’m always like this. Only this time it was photographed and published. […]
It’s a lot fuss about nothing. This is a very normal thing.
So apparently Jackie Chan just greets everybody with a nice cheek-nuzzle, and this time he was simply unlucky enough to be caught in the act. We’re not sure if that makes it better or worse.
