蕭敬騰的個性在演藝圈顯得相當與眾不同,他說話不僅幽默且直率,最重要的是他待人非常的真誠,進入演藝圈多年,投入的公益活動多於商業代言,而在過去的十二年間,蕭敬騰秉著自身的努力與用心,一點一點奠定了他今日天王的地位。一路見證他的歌迷最清楚,他毅力不搖的決心與源源不絕的才華,讓他走出歌手的身份,拓展出更多方位的演藝之路。2018年時,蕭敬騰不僅單挑金曲獎主持人的大樑,還現場表演油漆畫及手影秀,這樣的他,在幕後不斷地練習及努力再次驚豔了觀眾;這樣的他,也持續不斷的精進自己並持續地突破自己事業的尖峰。

當問起蕭敬騰為魅力四射的歌手、專業的歌唱主持評審亦在Instagram的搞笑模樣,他謙虛的回答:「我希望無論做什麼,自己都認可。」他覺得每個角色會帶來正向的影響,就是他覺得對的事情。時刻維持心目中自己真實的模樣,對老蕭來說是最踏實的生活哲學。一向追隨自己所好的老蕭,想為年輕人創造歌唱舞臺,在因緣際會下老蕭在歌唱節目《聲林之王》擔任評審,不論是鏡頭帶到他專注的神情、對於選手的鼓舞及清楚的引導歌唱技巧,那犀利指引如同反射動作般的敏銳,呈現了老蕭對音樂的專業性。即便如此的教導及評論,老蕭還是將功勞歸功於參賽者,他敘述著:「其實時常是我們透過他們的演出及寫的曲子獲得靈感,年輕一代對於音樂的認知及審美是不斷改變地,因此我們可以透過他們更了解當代音樂的現況,對於音樂我是一直充滿著好奇心!」

時尚歌王

時尚在老蕭的星路上佔據了很大一部份,他可以擔任UNIQLO的代言人,也是香奈兒的秀上嘉賓,經過時間的洗禮,老蕭已經與時尚有密不可分的關係,在拍攝的過程當中,他靜靜地細看著要配戴的寶格麗珠寶,在手上左右轉向,看著配件在燈光下的模樣,談起最喜愛的時尚配件他說:「近幾年蠻流行金屬類與華麗的彩色珠寶,我個人也非常喜愛,但如果考量穿搭性,我希望以一件珠寶配件為主,就是一個主題就可以了。」
近來在臉書及Instagram上更常見到老蕭較為隱私的模樣,有在家直播及一些搞笑的影片,當問起他私下最喜歡的時尚配件,他回答:「通常帶有復古元素的線條較不複雜,例如我覺得金屬的圓型鏡框就很能代表我,我本身也有許多圓型鏡框的太陽眼鏡。」對於時尚,老蕭已有自己的風格,而問起他對於時尚的穿搭,老蕭說:「穿搭其實最重要的是知道自己適合什麼,了解自己,並能穿出最合適的風格。」

Multiples Identities

Jam Hsiao is well-known for being a people person within the industry. He is humorous and very straightforward. Most importantly, he treats people genuinely. He is known for attending more charity events than brand endorsements. In the past twelve years, Jam has slowly and steadily turned himself into a superstar through his determination and his various hidden talents. The result is a star that is more than just a singer. In 2018, Jam single-handedly hosted Golden Melody Awards, from live painting to hand shadow dramas, revealing another side of him to the audience. HIs hosting skills and professionalism surprised many people. Despite becoming a more well-rounded star, Jam seeks to continue evolving himself. 

When asked about his multiple roles, which includes a charming singer on stage, a professional judge on singing contests, and a part-time comedian on Instagram, Jam modestly responded, ”Everything I am doing now is what I truly approve.” He feels that if each role brings a positive impact, then he is on the right path. While discussing the things he loves doing, Jam never failed to know all the comments he had made on the show ”Jungle Voice”, demonstrating his professionalism. The attentiveness to each performance, the compliments for each contestants’ singing skills, and the constructive comments to improve each contestant are a reflection of his music passion. Furthermore, Jam claimed that each contestant brought something new to him. He said, ”Sometimes we get inspired by the performances and the compositions from them [the contestants]. Their perspectives in music and aesthetics might be what is the most trendy right now. Sometimes, us old-fashioned must admit that they represent the new generation. Of course, we must keep on learning what’s new in music! ”

Additionally, Jam had also starred in the musical of  ”The Journey to the West – Uprise of the Young Devil” that just had its last show in Kaohsiung a week ago. The audience could not catch a breath from constantly laughing with one funny line coming one after another. While on stage, Jam was never frightened because he said, ”The key to a good performance is to enjoy it. A stage is just a platform elevated from a ground. It is music that makes us happy! As long as there’s music, I am always delighted.’’

A Fashion Icon

Fashion is a big part of Jam’s career. He is not only UNIQLO’s 2019 celebrity endorsment, but was also invited by Chanel to perform at its event. Through time, Jam has become closely associated with fashion by many people. During the day of the cover shoot, Jam carefully look into the jewelry of the Bvlgari pieces and when asked about his perspective on the jewelry and accessories fashion trend, he replied,  ”In the recent years,’ fashion is all about metal accessories and sumptuous jewelry pieces. I love them of course. Yet, I think, for me, I would like to stick with just one outstanding fashion accessory theme to represent me.”

Often, we get a peek into Jam’s life other than his everyday work because of all the live videos and funny ones posted for his fans. We all must wonder what are Jam’s hobbies and what accessories symbolize him. ”I like fashion items that are vintage because vintage usually means classic, and classical designs are often simple. I think metal rounded glasses really represents who I am. I have a few rounded sunglasses as well,” he said. Comfortable in his his unique style, Jam noted, ”To pick the best outfit and to be the chicest person the street, the most important thing is knowing yourself and your own style. ”

In Jam’s heart of hearts

Whenever Jam is in front of the camera, he has this mysteriousness about him. During the interview, his confident eyes seem to penetrate people. When asked where he draws his confidence from, he answered, ”I was pretty confident when I was little. I am always proud of my work and music brings out the best in me.” As a talented artist who is in the entertainment circle, Jam would like to share a quote that inspires him constantly, ”In the movie Spider-man, Uncle Ben once said to Peter Parker, ‘With great power comes great responsibility.’ This quote speaks to me as person. I believe once you have this power, it is your duty to what you can for your society.” Jam Hsiao—from a music challenger in the show One Billion Star (2007) to now a celebrity phenomenon—uses his musical talents to express his dream as he continues to seek new doors in his life.
