DAIGO, Ai Kago and hyde at a goukon!?

DAIGO Ai Kago hyde

Josei Seven reports that singer DAIGO (31) and ex-Morning Musume., now Gravi Idol member, Ai Kago (21) were seen at a goukon together with other gravi idols at a dining restaurant.

They rented a VIP room with karaoke and ate. hyde (who DAIGO has much respect for) was also reported at the restaurant, but the two (DAIGO and hyde), were not in the same party and arrived separately.

It’s also reported that DAIGO has gone to this restaurant with other gravi idol goukons.

“The other gravi idols include Hitomi Aizawa (27) and Yuu Tejima (25), this time it’s Kagochan. The two (DAIGO and Ai) seemed to enjoy drinking together, but since Kagochan has very low tolerance for alcohol, she didn’t feel so good and went home. When she came out of the bathroom, she ran into hyde,” said a reporter.

hyde who was there with friends drinking, happened to get the room right next to DAIGO’s ‘goukon room’.

An insider said, “There seemed to be a lot of females, especially one’s from work.” They also said that hyde had caught wind of what was going on next door and ‘barged in’ on DAIGO’s parade. “They were singing their own songs, trying to out do one another; hyde wasn’t about to give up either, so he sang DAIGO’s song, and very good I might add.” This little ‘gorgeous recital’ lasted till early morning.

It looked like DAIGO and Kagochan had a good time drinking. It also seems that DAIGO set up this ‘meeting’ between Aizawa and Kagochan at the gouko – thus is the world of show business.

Even though at the end of it all, the point of goukon changed when hyde entered the picture; they all had a good time.

Kusumi Koharu Graduates


Morning Musume. member Kusumi Koharu (17) will be graduating from Morning Musume. in December, and her last performance with the group will be on 12/6.

Tsunku has stated that there are plans for Koharu to go solo and start solo activities.

Like many others before her, Morning Musume. rotates it’s members, thus when these members “graduate” a new, younger girl is brought in to replace her.

Meaning Tsunku has more girls on the natto and curry diet. I really need to try that one of these weeks.

Melon is the new Rock

melon kinenbi

This is a test for all Hello! Project fans. Did you recognize these 4 lovely ladies at the drop of a hat? If you did, I give you props, because even I didn’t recognize Melon Kinenbi in their rugged, rock band look. Might I add, I love it.

Hello! Project group, Melon Kinenbi is back and rockin’ hard collaborating with THE COLLECTORS, to bring you “Seishun on the road.”

Melon Kinenbi has done collabs with BEATCRUSADERS and Midori who is their senpai, in the past. This new collaboration is going back old school, classical ‘60s UK rock, but with a modern style.

This single is a Tower Records only release, so if you want it, it’s the only place to get it; or you can wait till it goes up on Yahoo! Auctions Japan. It drops 10/21. THE COLLECTORS will hold an event at the Harajuku Astro Hall with Melon Kinenbi called, “MELON LOUNGE.”

I can’t wait for it, I don’t listen to them, but with a different look and appeal, I will sure be there when the PV comes out.

MoMusu is all about America

morning musume

Three months after their first American concert, idol group Morning Musume. will grace all their fans in Japan with a documentary on 9/5, called “Morning Musume. America, first live.”

It will air at 12:58 on TV Tokyo. It will show a behind the scenes at Anime Expo 2009; all their overseas fans and off-shoots.

Well I’m sure they had to do a lot of editing for this documentary. I’m actually surprised they are airing this, I didn’t think they would. I guess this is good news for all you MoMusu fans.
