Ayumi Hamasaki's Farty queen flops. Show still goes on.
When you're trying to act like your divorce weren't a thing and making out like your album flopping at number 2 isn't even news, what do you do? You look a skank mess on stage and stick a wig on that shit. Ayumi Hamasaki has been hustling with her ~HOTEL love songs~ tour and keeping that yen rolling in to keep those cheques balancing and keep Avex in business. Farty queen may have flopped on the ORICON charts in its first week (Note: Ayu debuting at number 2 = Flop) but her tour continues to be a success and this is where the real money's at. Ayu knows this. Hence why she stays touring. And knowing that Kumi Kehovah is taking time off to bear the second Christ, you best believe Ayu will be cramming as many of those dates in before the star shines over Bethlehem and everybody forgets that Beyoncé even had a baby. I so want Kumi's next album to be titled The nativity and for the album cover to be her sprawl legged in a manger with n***a's around her holding Jacob watches.
