超级碗中场表演期间,一个叫“水果姐”的女人成为了中国网民的热门话题。

Soundsmysterious, but you already know who she is. "Fruit Sister," or "shui guo jie," is what people in Chinacall Katy Perry -- referring to her tendency to wear fruit costumes and bringgiant fruit with her on stage.

听上去很神秘,但其实你早就认识她。“水果姐”or“shui guo jie”是中国人给Katy Perry起的外号,因为她总是穿水果样式的服装,登台表演时也带着许多巨大的水果。

In thepast, the pop star has performed in sparkly watermelon-cup bras, sung whileholding a large inflatable strawberry and even burst out of a giant banana.

过去的表演中,Katy Perry穿过耀眼的西瓜胸衣,一边唱歌一边拿着巨大的充气草莓,甚至从一个大香蕉里一跃而出。



But"Fruit Sister" isn't the only Western celeb to get an interestingChinese alias. Here are a few others and the stories behind them:

但水果姐不是唯一一个有好玩中国别名的外国明星,下面是其他好玩的名字和他们背后的故事。

Lord of Butt

洛霸



Jennifer Lopez isknown as the "Lord of Butt" in parts of Hong Kong and China.

詹妮弗·洛佩兹在香港和中国内地被称为“洛霸”。

A popularnickname for Jennifer Lopez in Hong Kong and China is "luo ba," whichtranslates to "Lord of Butt."

詹妮弗洛佩兹在香港和中国内地比较流行的昵称是“洛霸”,翻译过来的意思是“美臀天后”。



实际上这个有点双关语。“洛霸”听上去和她的姓“洛佩兹”很像。

Eitherway, it's a fitting moniker for the superstar who revealed her bare behind inthe music video for her song "Booty."

无论怎样,这个绰号对于这位巨星来说都很名副其实,她曾在Booty这首歌的MV里一展自己的引以为傲的美臀。

Curly Blessing

卷福



What a CurlyBlessing!

多么卷的卷福!

BenedictCumberbatch is known as "Curly Blessing," or "juan fu."

本尼迪克特·康伯巴奇被称作“卷福”

In Mandarin, "juan" means curly, referring to Cumberbatch's curlyhairstyle in his role as Sherlock Holmes.

在普通话里,juan就是卷曲的意思,指的是康伯巴奇在神探夏洛克里的一头卷发造型。

"Fu"means happiness, fortune, or blessing -- and it's the first part of the Chinesename for Sherlock Holmes.

Fu的意思是幸福、好运或祝福,也是“福尔摩斯”的第一个字。

Put thosetwo together, and you get something like "Curly Sherlock" or, morepoetically, "Curly Blessing."

综合上面两点,就能得出一个类似“卷夏”或者更有诗意的“卷福”的名字。

Numbing-Spicy Chicken

麻辣鸡



NIcki Minaj, alsoknown as Numbing-Spicy Chicken.

尼基·米娜被叫做麻辣鸡。

ManyChinese dishes aren't just spicy. Thanks to a special peppercorn, Sichuancuisine carries an extra kick and will actually numb your tongue.

许多中国菜不仅仅是辣。因为有了一种特殊的花椒,四川料理常常给吃的人带来特别的刺激感,真的会让你的舌头麻掉。

That'swhy Chinese fans have nicknamed Nicki Minaj "Numbing-Spicy Chicken,"or "mala ji": She's spicy hot; she'll stun your senses and leave youwanting more.

他的嗓音非常独一无二,有几分振奋人心,因为他有很多半裸的照片,所以粉丝们才给他起了“骚当”这个外号。一名CNN的北京实习生解释说。

中国有一个略微粗俗但是很受欢迎的俗语“牛逼”,非常了不起的意思。因此“牛姐”虽然听上去一般,但真真切切是赞美,是对凯莉不可思议唱功的肯定。

Anotherexplanation is that it refers to a 1992 episode of "SesameStreet" that featured a singing cow namedMariah Cowey.

另一种解释是《芝麻街》的第1992期里有一只会唱歌的奶牛叫“玛利亚·牛莉”。
