(AP) Taiwan's pop king Jay Chou has played roles as varied as superhero, vampire and cowboy. So his latest album about an influential but corrupt court eunuch may not sound all that odd to his fans.


In Gong Gong with A Headache released Thursday, Chou raps about the eunuch who has a secret passion for women but must not touch them. ''Gong Gong is a name for court eunuchs in China.


In the music video, Chou dances stiffly like a zombie to the tune of hip hop, dressed in satin imperial court costume.


The singer also wrote the song. He says he was inspired by the popular drama series The Legend of Zhen Huan and other court dramas that have captivated audiences in China and Taiwan.
