Since I haven’t translated rumors for a long time and there’s too many of them now, I decided to do this digest (again) consisting of past rumors that interests me.
Involved parties, are: Kamenashi Kazuya, Yamashita Tomohisa, and Kiriyama Akito.
- Kamenashi Kazuya Seen with a Blond Woman? ***UPDATED***
Despite the surge of Brazilian women calling themselves “Marcia Kamenashi” and the like, Kame seems more interested with white chicks. Rumor has it that KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya was spotted in an overseas trip with a blond white woman. According to eye-witness accounts, Kamenashi was seen twice with that woman, first was in Aug 26th and in Aug 27th at a patissiere shop in New York.
***In an article from Women’s Weekly via azashi, reports indicate that Kamenashi and the blonde woman was seen in JFK Airport in New York last Aug 19th. The said woman was like a “Hollywood actress” and was heard talking to Kame in English. In addition, a witness also said that the two were seen in Disneyland. The magazine did not specify any romantic involvement between the two and an entertainment reporter commented that the two are unlikely to be in a romantic relationship.
[Actually, that woman is one of Kame’s “ore” in lieu with his promotional activities for “Ore Ore” in New York. Seriously, she could be an interpreter or agent or whatever. ]
- Fuji TV is Suffering due to Preferential Treatment given to Yamashita Tomohisa
Aside from having a getsu 9 drama series with “SUMMER NUDE”, Yamapi also co-hosts a variety show, and will soon release an album titled “A NUDE”. Despite all that, something is amiss. Fuji TV is reportedly at their “wit’s end” after the single digit ratings of Yamapi’s debut in variety hosting with “Generation Tengoku”. If ratings are to be ignored, the fact that the show is in “Golden” time slot is already a struggle. Apparently, the agency and Iijima’s move to make Yamapi a “more interesting person” with his variety chairmanship has proven to be quite a challenge for the program’s director and writer. Moreover, the “suffering” continues as Yamapi’s record sales didn’t show improvement despite going via “erotic” route with “ERO-P” last year.
[Despite all the bashes that Yamapi is getting, I’m still his fan. If the “sexy/nude/erotic route is not working, give him something like “Loveless” and he’ll surely bounce back. I know it’s such a waste to hide those muscles and abs but Yamapi has been showing them a lot that all the excitement is now gone. ]
- How Security Cameras Fare with the Private Lives of Celebrities
A guy enters a store while playing with his mobile phone, all filmed by a security camera, seems like a normal occurrence until one fan pointed-out that the said guy is Johnny’s Jr- Kiriyama Akito. The supposed-to-be private security footage by the convenience store was splashed throughout net, after one fan posted it on twitter, which “alarmed” some other fans over their idols right of privacy.
All ends well as the security agency behind the convenience store made an apology to the agency.
[This is not really a big deal considering that I’ve also seen a video snapshot of Koki Tanaka while in a convenience store. Besides, the irony of this story is the fact that some fans got irked by their idol’s lack of privacy considering the fact that a fellow fan posted the picture in twitter, and we all know that everything can get out of hand when it comes to twitter. ]
