Recently years, all kinds of Web celebrities are sweeping China's cyber world and many of them are famous for their ugly displays or shocking words, which mislead netizens into thinking that success is gained by extreme activities, according to an article on Singapore's Lianhe Zaobao.

The article also points out that China has to find out some entertainment forms that can stimulate thinking and cultivate taste rather than these vulgar shows.

She used to boastfully say that she began to read books when she was nine and she reached the summit at age 20, and no one would ever surpass her in the following 600 years.
