In the immortal words of Chris Hansen from Dateline, "why don't you have a seat right over there?"
China isn't that different than the U.S. You can watch The Avengers in a movie theater, hit up McDonalds for a late night McHot Dog Mega Sausage, and sign into a social media website to check out the status of your favorite over-scrutinized celebrity couple.
And you can bet Chinese citizens are just as shocked as we would be to learn a 24 year-old popstar is in a relationship with a 12 year-old model.
You read that right!
Singer Zhang Muy is publicly courting preteen model Akama Miki!!
We are the last ones to support government regulating love between consensual adults but a 12 year-old girl is clearly NOT AN ADULT!!
As far as we know, these two haven't been physically intimate, but they post tons of lovey-dovey pictures on Weibo, the Chinese equivalent of Twitter.
We guess we should be happy that Zhang vowed to wait "four more birthdays" before making a move — the age of consent is 16 in that part of China — but it's all still very creepy!
Hopefully the little girl's parents are nearby and protecting her best interests!
