Everybody knows about the AKB48 scandal, where Minami Minegishi got named, shamed, demoted, publicly humiliated and was guilt tripped so badly into thinking she'd made the biggest mistake of her life, that she felt the need to shave her head as a sign of contrition for having done wrong. It didn't stop there however, as she felt she needed to show how sorrier she was by uploading a video to YouTube sporting her new hair cut, crying into the camera and apologizing for letting her boyfriend lick it 'n' stick it good until the morning. There's no point in me doing a post on this whole debacle now as it's old news. But what I will say is that that it was a complete mess and just shows how messed up both the J-Pop industry can be from the inside and also within the fandom; which stems from deep underlying social issues within Japan.
Our favourite Japanese hot mess Kyary Pussy Pamyu spoke up about the latest scandal. And I think Pussy Pamyu threw shade at some idols. Like...left bitches in a blackout.
In the Japanese idol world, they are very strict about relationships. It's like in return for male fans' support, idols keep out of relationships and love, devoting themselves to their jobs as idols. In my opinion, and idol's job is to suck up to men and do what they can to get their attention. What I do though is something guys will never love. What I'm doing is more like an artist than an idol.I'm not sure how legit this translation is. Some of what Pamyu 'says' sounds harsher than what I would imagine Pamyu saying in actuality. I'm going to chalk this up to an iffy translation. But what we can take away from this is that Pamyu has an objective view of idols and that she has no desire to be one and that she doesn't see herself that way.
This leaves me feeling happy for Pamyu, that she's up for a late night creep and let a homie give her the ninjari bang bang on a Fliday night.
