My friend looked at Goodbye Anita, and asked, “Why do Hong Kong people love her so much?” and I couldn’t really explain it.
Then I said, “Well, she’s our Princess Diana, I guess.”
“But she’s a pop star.”
“We don’t have royalty. I mean she wasn’t born into it, she wasn’t married into it. She earned it every step of the way.”
“So more worthy, in many respects.”
“Every place need their stars. People need people to love, stories for people to dream, something that bonds us as a culture, as a place. She did that for 20 years. We need to pay our respects.”
“I think you did a good job.”
“Thanks, I made her known to you at least.”
