Băng Tâm & Như Quỳnh: Hot or Not?



















After leaving Thúy Nga, Như Quỳnh returns to Asia where they really tries to create for her a fresher new look that resembles the old Như Quỳnh. The slimmer, young, and pretty looking Như Quỳnh before all the baby drama. Images surfaced the Internet showing just that, and you think she could not get any younger looking.

It is obvious that Asia is promoting Băng Tâm quite frequently. It is still up for debate whether her look is an attractive one, and the same goes for talent. What makes most people so irritated is neither about the look nor talent, but how Băng Tâm choose to portraying herself that has people saying she is fake.

Check out the new pictures surfacing the Internet of Như Quỳnh and Băng Tâm. Như Quỳnh definitely looks really young in the photos, however the hand and all is too pose-y. Băng Tâm looks a bit weird. In the last picture, you can see that she tries to look sexy, but it is not working. She looks manly as well as drag queen-ish, while Như Quỳnh tries to conjure up the innocent girl look. I like the make up, and the clothing for both ladies, but the pairing of the two is just a bit ... you tell me.

I'm not a fan of NQ but i gotta say NQ looks much better than BT. Gosh... i can't stand BT, she's trying too hard!

I really really can't see NQ in evening dresses. Her voice does not match with those kind of songs where you wear evening dresses like Y Lan, Khanh Ha`, Thanh Ha`, etc. And what is up with her bangs? Bad styling all together.

BT dress doesn't fit right at the waist. The bra cup is not proportion at all. Worst designed for faked boobs! It just doesn't fit right.

Anyways, back to NQ. I love her, but i just wish she sticks to country music rather modern ones. It just doesn't fit her image and voice at all. Her brother does magnificent job in designing Ao dai...that should have been her come back. Bring hot a hot and sexy newly created ao dai....it like red hot color! Screaming....i'm still like a innocent "hie^`n" vietnamese girl wearing my ao dai.....with a hint of naughty with the red.

i agree...i don't think evening dresses should go on Nhu Quynh's body. Doesn't look right...I say that Asia is trying to smash the picture of a innocent girl who always sing "que huong" songs wearing and ao dai and replacing it with a rich looking beauty queen.

there is something suspicious about Bang Tam. I can sense it.....

GeeNie said...

bang tam doesn't look that bad i don't think. they both woulda looked better in ao dais or something tho. or if they just HAD to wear an evening gown kinda thing then they coulda done a modern ao dai/evening gown design. and their hair sorta sucks. bang tam's is like "whoa" and nhu quynh's is like "i just woke up." their style and looks are so different in those pics that it doesn't look like they were actually at the shoot together, it's like they took pics separately and then got photoshoped together or something.

Bad idea by Asia. NQ is almost 40 now so making her look young again does not make sense. I never BT or her voice, there is something about her.....

Tam said...

She looks 18 to me. What is her secret for looking beautiful and youthful?

Anonymous said...

i almost feel sorry for BT. she is trying way too hard with all that surgery yet she is still nothing compared to NQ. NQ is still younger and more naturally beautiful and more talented.

Nhu Quynh- I like the bangs. It makes her look a lot younger. However, NQ will always be NQ no matter how hard they try to "fix" her up. She's still the "I am sweet and innocent" type who has a baby and is not married.

Bang Tam- Please. This girl cannot sing compared to NQ. Asia only promoted her because they needed someone to sing all their country songs without sounding like a dead duck (ahem.. Y Phung.. Ahem) Bang Tam can look pretty in some light but the way they had her posing in the pics suggest something else.

Bottom line is Asia is good for NOT preserving their singer's image. They like to slut everyone up despite their range of music. (Remember Ngoc Ha and in the infamous showing of the boobs on her first appearance?)


Yuck. Yuck. Yuck.

looks like NQ has a major facial reconstruction done...I think BT looking hot as ever.

Nhu Quynh looks very young, lovely and innocently beautiful as always.
I like her bang, a little different than before.

Bang Tam is quite pretty but in a mean and seductive way.

Nhu looks gorgeous!! I thing people gossip to much about her. What is so bad, about changing a bit. No one wants to be the same forever without progessing.
I thing nobody wants to be forced to only wear ao dai forever and ever. What´s matter is her voice. And it is still fantastic. I don´t care about her character. I just want to hear her music.

I like NQs look but i think BT is trying a bit too hard LOL

I love NQ's pop / younger genre music back in the days more so than Minh Tuyet now. But I'm not sure if she can rehash that. But one thing is that you can't deny her talent.

I understand that people are playing a role or different roles on stage but it's pretty fake looking. And this goes to other singers as well. Everyone is always fronting.

But come on people give her a break - if you only knew how old everyone really is. Isn't Minh Tuyet about NQ's age? Why the double standard just because we're so use to see NQ singing folk music? People always want to put other in a box.

As for Bang Tam - What's up with all the trash talking about her? I don't like her either but to call her fake and having plastic surgery - we don't know that for sure - do we?

I'm sorry but I just don't get it:

- When she was young, she was singing old music like nhac que huong.

- Now that she is older, she tries to be young again?

Why don't go with your age in the first place?? She does not look bad or anything, but it does not suit her.

Our image of her in an ao dai is like printed in our memories. Seeing her in a evening dress makes her looks silly.

BT is definitely trying too hard.

Please leave the youthful image to singers who are... maybe young? Anh Minh, please show these two how it is done!

Kathlynn said...

let them try , Please ! Thanks .

BT looks like an 80 year old grandmother who put some make up om to make her look young. Nhu Quynh looks so much cuter and younger. Do not try to hard BT. or else you might get stressed out

Please PEOPLE. you guys should listen to Nhu Quynh Singing with NO effect adds on. SUCKS. bad voice control. don't just listen to the record after so many fixes. Bang Tam is better singer in just PLAIN voice comming out of the Microphone. I just want to be Fair to all of them when i see all the comments you guys made. I did the sound for the concert which is LIVE. Here you can hear who is really have the true controled voice.

Whenever I watch BT's performances, I feel like she's a copy of NQ or something..Maybe not intentionally of course, but they do have striking similarities. BT sorta looks like NQ too, the traditional long black hair of course, but also something in their facial features, I think it's their eyelids and nose or something. All together I don't go WOWW when I see BT, I think overall she's just a random avarage singer and performer, she doesn't captivates you.

While NQ does, that's why I loved her wayy back from the start. But I do have to admit that she sang and performed much better in her old days. Her voice is not as clear and powerful as she was younger anymore. Her stage acts are way too melodramatic and overacted.

I love NQ for her incredible versions of nhac que huong songs, so it always seems akward and unnatural to me whenever she tries to sing nhac tre pop music, even though it doesn't sound that bad, it just doesn't do anything to her credibility.
I was shocked seeing NQ in her Lien Khuc act in the Asia show where she sang TIENG MUA DEM and wore that dress with a huge split up her legs and cleavage..If any other singer would wear that dress I'd think it'd be normal, but with her it's like HUHHHH? Just because we have this image of her engraved in our minds as her being portrayed as the AO DAI girl who came straight out of the country.

NQ's hair in these pictures looks really NHA QUE I think..Bangs are cute, hot, but hers look like nha que.

Why r u cridicizing others talent? I love NQ and all Vietnamese singers, they're all trying to good if not so let it be. Nobody perfect jux look at youself first.

Only the blinds would not know who is HOT.

They both are beautiful and talented in a different way.
Those people who wrote rude and insulting comments should be ashamed of themselves. You should be proud of your Vietnamese community/people. You talked trash about others because you are either jealous or the type of people that you are criticizing.

Johnny Tao said...

Gorgeous.
Pretty, both of them.
Would like to see if they gain a few pounds, too skinny.

I always loved Nhu Quynh back in the old days, but years went by made me get sick of her. I don't like her performance on stage; 'yeu dieu'.

I've seen bt performed, and I cant even listen to a minute of it
