ChatGPT Fooled By Faye Wong’s Old Stage Name, Wong Jing Wen; Insists The Two Have Different Faces And Singing Styles
Faye briefly used the name Wong Jing Wen, or Shirley Wong, in the late '80s.
Looks like ChatGPT may have met its match. And it’s Faye Wong.
A netizen recently shared a picture of Chinese pop diva Faye Wong, 53, in the late ‘80s, cheekily referring to Faye by her old stage name “Wong Jing Wen”.
Faye made her singing debut in 1989 after winning third place in a singing contest a year prior, under the name Wong Jing Wen in Mandarin, and Shirley Wong in English. The stage name was a request by the executives at the record label Faye was signed under, in an attempt to give her a “sophisticated” image.
Faye went on to release three albums using that stage name, but soon changed it to Wang Fei, or Faye Wong, in 1992.
So yes, Faye and ‘Wong Jing Wen’ are the same person… although it seems like AI chat bot ChatGPT doesn’t quite understand this yet.
A different netizen shared screenshots of his chat record with ChatGPT, revealing that he’d asked for tips on how to “differentiate between Faye Wong and Wong Jing Wen” after seeing the initial Facebook post.
ChatGPT then replied with a mini-essay, complete with three points of differentiation — appearance, singing style, and personality.
Apart from writing that Faye has a “thinner and more delicate face” compared to Wong Jing Wen’s “round face”, ChatGPT added that Wong Jing Wen’s singing is more powerful, while Faye’s singing is more delicate.
The AI tool then ended things off by writing: “In conclusion, as long as you observe their faces closely, listen to their music, and pay attention to their individual styyles, you’ll be able to easily differentiate between Wong Jing Wen and Faye Wong.”
