Y Phung, 33 shared in a recent interview about her personal preferences in men, talked about her previous marriage of 7 years, and even addressed the rumor that she is a lesbian. The singer openly stated that she cannot love poor men because of her big spending habits (sounds like Ngoc Trinh). "Anyone would run away after taking care of me for two months." Y Phung said that she loves fun, money, has a big spending habit, doesn't love poor men, and refuses to give up her career to stay home and have kids. However, she is also the kind of person who will get marry just to make her father happy.
Overseas, Y Phung only participates in singing. On her free time, she wakes up early morning to exercise for 3-4 hours and then go to work. She plans to go to school to learn English and then learn about makeup. "I think when my time is up (in showbiz); I will still do something in the entertainment business." Y Phung shared that although many women are strong and like to be on par with men, but she is not like that, because she prefers to be sheltered by men. "I might not look like it but I am very feminine, very easy to cry. My man must take care of me. I am afraid of men who are calculating, because I am generous. And when I spend, it is not only for me. Women have to be beautiful for the admiration of men. Men nowadays are also very polished as well, so as women we have to keep up." Furthermore, she talked about her preferences in men. The singer hates men who goes from one "long leg" to another to be in the news and gain people's attention. She rather is underground with her lover instead. "I hate people who go out with friend's friends or take friend's husband. If you're with me, you should respect me and not lay eye on anyone else."
When asked about her marriage, Y Phung said they're divorced. "Maybe I'm not the family type of woman, because I'm always going out." She explained that as an entertainer she doesn't have the holidays off. On top of that, she loves singing, limelight and money. "I love to have fun and would go out all day; who could stand that?" The singer said she was married too early, in her twenty. And because they would argue a whole lot, she decided to end the marriage. Y Phung revealed that she married her husband because that year her dad was very ill and thought that he wouldn't make it to see her get marry, so she did it just to make him happy. But in fact, she didn't love her husband, she only liked him. Her husband knew of this fact. Overtime, she was touched of his sacrificed for her and cared for her family; however she was too drawn into work that she couldn't save their marriage of 7 years.

Although claiming to care for family tradition, Y Phung refuses to have kids. When she was with her husband, he wanted children, but she was selfish and refused. When asked she explained that if she was in Vietnam she would have kids because when the child misbehaved you can beat them. But in America, if you beat your kids, authorities would inferred right away (b.s. much?). "I'm used to living like with my parents... the family relation over there (U.S.) is very cold. Probably, I am saying this now, but eventually I will have kids. I want my kids to follow in my career. When I'm old and away from the limelight, I will be very bored." Y Phung added that she wants to have kids very much, but her English is very bad. Then she contradicts herself by saying she loves having children, but doesn't know about the future. "Who knows, this year I might find someone I like and have kids."

Addressing the rumors that she is a lesbian, Y Phung explained that her friends range from a pedicab to a club dancer. She is especially close to her famous gay friends. They help her a lot like making her pretty. When she goes shopping, they would be there to help her chose outfits. And it is normal that she would change clothes in front of them. "Maybe because I like to party hard and so does gay people so we get along. They would come to support me at my shows. I have so many memories with these friends in the entertainment world. Those who sing backup singers for me were gay. Now many are more famous then I am. Some are current lead singers in Vietnam. Others are not as popular but I still keep in contact, going to eat comfortably on the sidewalk with. But I only do this with old friends, not new ones." Source
