China is preparing for its new president, and one of the most glamorous First Ladies world politics has ever seen. But will she match up to Not-The-Real-Excellent Horse-Like Lady?
Ri Sol-ju is married to Great Leader, and is of a signing background. However, it’s said she studied science, and is from an upper-class family, her father being a professor, and her mother, an obstetrician.
But, China wins this one, because Peng Liyuan is one of the most well known singers in China, which is a far larger place than North Korea is. Now she is readying herself to take on an entirely new role as the wife of President Xi Jinping.
The 18th Communist Party Congress will close with the confirmation of Xi Jinping as China’s leader for the next ten years. And that means a change of career for Peng Liyuan. The entertainer is already a household name. For 25 years she has sung and acted for the Chinese people. She is even a Major General in the People’s Liberation Army.
But things will change for Liyuan now – apparently the Communist Party does not like “personality politics,” and as a result, Liyuan’s cd’s and dvd’s have become nearly impossible to purchase in the country’s capital, Beijing.
Of course, this is China we’re talking about, and there are pirates making a killing.
One lady told Sky News: “Of course a singer can be a leader’s wife – what’s wrong with that. I admire her voice very much.
“I like her a lot and she’s well respected.”
Another said: “I’m really looking forward to her becoming China’s First Lady. I think she will improve the image of Chinese women around the world.”
A man standing in the queue added: “She’s just as good as any foreign leader’s wife.
“People love her because she has her own career and she sings for the people.”
Here is Peng Liyuan performing the “Laundry Song”:
