Did Namie Amuro plagiarize?

First it was G-Dragon who was under the scrutiny of Korean netizens, this time its Japanese artist Namie Amuro.

South Korean magazine has stated that Amuro’s cover for her upcoming album “PAST < FUTURE” is a copy and Japan’s netizens on 2ch are calling it an “international disgrace” and are saying that the cover should be changed immediately. Japan is very proud of its top stars so for a Korean fashion magazine to publish this is a disgrace, especially since South Korea has been ‘plagiarizing’ (so to speak) Japan (i.e. the TV/variety shows) earlier this year.

Amuro who will release her new album “PAST < FUTURE” after 2-years has gained popularity all over Asia. She is a Oricon Chart topper and is voted as ‘most liked celebrity’ and ‘nicest female artist and lifestyle’ (ok its something along those lines, not exactly).

What’s your wedding song?

Tsutaya surveyed the question: What song would you want for your wedding?

Pretty cool question as there are tons of songs to choose from, especially in Japan since they all sing about love anyways.

1 DEEN – Celebrate
2 Arashi – One Love
3 KinKi Kids – Ai no katamari
4 DEEN – Dear Friend
5 Namie Amuro – CAN YOU CELEBRATE?
6 DEEN – Kono mama kimi dake wo ubaisaritai
7 GLAY – HOWEVER
8 Itsuka
9 Koichi Domoto – Ai no jyuujika
10 Kyosuke Himuro – Diamond Dust

Honestly, I thought Amuro would have topped this one with “CAN YOU CELEBRATE?,” that song was number one for over a year in Japan in 1997. But it is one of those “love it or hate it” songs. I know my siblings can’t stand that. I really don’t know about number eight since there was no artist attached to that title. I am surprised that DEEN took the win for having three of their songs on this list. The last DEEN song I remember is from 1995 when they did the theme song to Dragon Ball Z.

For my wedding song I’d want my soon-to-be spouse to write it and sing it, if he can sing. If he can’t he better hire someone who can.

What would be your wedding song?

Keita’s aiming for the porn industry?

keita

Oh Keita, its about time. No that wasn’t a stab at the title, but at what you’re about to read. Although I knew that title would get a majority of you.

It’s about time we found something on someone else other than a Jyani’s boy. Keita Tachibana of w-inds. is rumored to be ‘aiming‘ for an actress, N-san.

There were previous rumors of him and Aya Matsura being really close friends and at one point dating. After Keita made w-inds. cancel some of their shows due to him getting bronchitis, rumor has it that he’s been seen with Aya again.

Keita is a bit of a playboy, and would disappear with a girl from time to time. Even if the girl is there and doesn’t want to… this time the girl didn’t even go to the goukon, and she usually does“, said a staff member.

It’s normal to see people and invite them goukon’s if you see them at work. Now a days, you see a lot of pretty boys down at Shibuya Station rent mansion’s (apartments) that cost around 35,000yen, because of the location. Keita’s also been seen riding in fancy cars, it seems he’s become one of them. Chances are he met the girl at a goukon and seems to be one of “Namie Amuro’s good friend”, which he finds appealing.

Amuro doesn’t really hate anyone, whether or not they are actually good friends, I’m not so sure. But no matter where she’s at, she’s always singing Amuro songs. I’m not even sure if she buys her albums, but I really do want to see hear her sing those songs in karaoke.

It seems he’s got a thing for girls in the office, who are older.

Whenever he see’s a cute girl on TV, he’ll ask someone to introduce him to her.

The latest seems to be this actress, N-san. He seemed to be in a trance when he saw N-san, and asked a friend to introduce him to her.

This person is different from Aya, so it’s not her. This girl (N-san) is in a completely different industry than Keita and a different kind of actress than Aya. So the likely hood of bringing down and finding out who it is, is unlikely.

Different kind of actress? Oh Keita, we know you watch porn, but really, an AV actress? I know you can do better than that. We all know how low quality porn is in that country and the girls. Unless it was foreign porn, then maybe. Oh well, happy hunting to those who want to know who it is. If you do, please share the nasty photos with the rest of us.
