Super Girl coach Mindy Quah (柯以敏) is famous for her sharp tongue. Recently, a video showing her making impertinent remarks to a contestant aroused the anger of Internet users. During an audition, Quah shouted to a girl stricken with the flu, “Get lost! You don’t have to sing!” A survey conducted by Sina Entertainment shows that over 90 percent of respondents consider Quah’s behavior to be disrespectful. Quah issued an apology later, but she also criticized Hunan TV for publishing that video as a publicity stunt for their upcoming program.
马上学：Impertinent形容“粗鲁的，没礼貌的”。文中 publicity stunt指“宣传噱头”，炒作还可以说hype up。
Wedding ceremonies are supposed to be sweet, heart-warming occasions. However, the marriage between actor Bao Bei’er and TV host Bao Wenjing on March 30 turned into a highly contentious event. The ceremony, which took place in Bali, Indonesia, was almost derailed when several groomsmen, including pop stars Han Geng and Du Haitao, tried to throw singer-actress Liu Yan into a swimming pool. Luckily, Liu was saved, thanks to the swift actions of her fellow bridesmaids and comedian Jia Ling. Many Internet users condemned the groomsmen’s behavior and the custom of teasing bridesmaids. But others considered it to be a harmless prank. On April 1, Liu posted a videotaped apology on Sina Weibo, saying that she felt sorry to have turned a wedding into a controversy.
马上学：Contentious 意思是“有争议的”， 如：a contentious law/speech/book (有争议的法律/讲话/书)。近义词有controversial, disputed等。
For seven months before she was cast in the crime thriller Port of Call (《踏血寻梅》), Chun Xia could not find acting work and was not even economically self-sufficient. She plays a prostitute who is brutally murdered and dismembered in the film. The role brought sudden, drastic changes to her life. On April 3, the young actress became the first person of the post-1990s generation to win Best Actress at the 35th Hong Kong Film Awards. In a long post on Sina Weibo released on April 4, the actress said she owed her success mostly to good luck and the film’s crew. “Life is wonderful and full of miracles, right?” she wrote.
马上学：Drastic意为“剧烈的，(变化)巨大的”，如：a drastic cutback on budget。类似意思的形容词还有radical, immoderate。对于这位新晋影后媒体还用了dedicated(敬业的)，modest(谦虚的)等溢美之词。
