No grass, no songs.

Jay Chou looks like he is trying to smell the grass.

It’s official: More grass is needed in the Singapore Sports Hub pitch to entice Jay Chou to perform there.

Taiwan superstar Jay Chou released a statement on Oct. 17, 2014 saying that a vital ingredient for his concert, which was initially scheduled for Nov. 8, is grass and that the current pitch is just not on par with his usual standards.

As such the concert will be postponed to Dec. 27.

A spokesman for Jay Chou, Xu Yao Chao said: “It’s unacceptable to have more sand than grass at the venue. If my boss wants to hold a concert at the beach, we will jolly well book at Sentosa or East Coast Park. We want to smell the grass. Besides, my boss’ favourite colour is green.”

New Nation spoke to a couple of Jay Chou fans for their comments, who agreed grass is what drives their idol’s creativity.

Long Juan Feng, a long-time Jay Chou fan, said: “Any self-respecting singer needs grass to perform. It’s already reported in some scientific journals. This is totally not my Jay’s fault. It’s Singapore Sports Hub’s fault. I hate you!”

Another fan, Shuang Jie Kun said: “Jay is a perfectionist. I understand his concern. However, I cannot believe Singapore has no grass. Cannot buy from Malaysia?”
