To use your own words, any statement made on an internet forum proves nothing. So it would also be pointless asking you if you are going to give up your US citizenship, right ?

A lot of Chinese celebrities don't necessarily set good examples. You forgot to mention one more - Jet Li who bought a SIN$25 million-dollar property in Singapore and who got Singapore Citizenship. I wonder whether if any western celebrities would take up Chinese citizenship if there was such a thing. But we won't know the true answer until there is such a thing.

That said, it appears that a lot more Chinese now are hesitant to give up their Chinese citizenship than say 15 years years ago. I guess that is a good sign?

BTW, French actor Gerald Depardieu took up Russian citizenship, renounced his French citizenship  and expressed his anger at the French government.

The odds are slim for the Westerners to take up Chinese citizenship. And it's really hard to travel around with a chinese passport.
