The end of Noriko Sakai

This is what happens ladies and gentlemen when you are in the entertainment industry. You get a dazzling career, loyal fans, lots of money, and of course drugs.

Noriko Sakai has been formally indicted on charges of drug possession and still waits to be indicted for drug use. The public announcement of this news has led to the nailing that last nail in the coffin. Sakai’s agency, Sun Music has made a formal announcement of her dismissal. Sun Music president Masahisa Aizawa held an emergency press conference and revealed that not only Sun Music, but her label Victor Entertainment has also dismissed Sakai. Victor Entertainment has terminated their contract with her including canceling her upcoming best album and has pulled her entire catalogue from all music stores.

What more could go wrong? Well the loss of 500 million yen to be exact. Sun Music also announced that they will take financial responsibility for all of Sakai’s broken contracts. This includes contracts with Victor Entertainment, Arax and Toyota (for cm) and all merchandise related to her fashion brand “PP rikorino.”

With everything going on, Sakai finally admitted to being a user for 4 years. She started as a way to help relieve the stress and fatigue that came with her career. She stated that she did have intentions to stop, but became addicted after a couple of years. Her need increased, thus landing her in the cold where no one will rescue her now.

What I want to know is what will happen to her son? Both Sakai and her husband have both been indicted, leaving their son to, hopefully caring and loving relatives. I have no sympathy for them because there are other alternatives to get rid of stress, but then I guess eating in Japan is a no-no because then she would have gotten criticized for being ‘fat’. I say that’s better than going to jail for 10 years and leaving a son behind, and losing her career.

They were just waiting for it to happen

G-Dragon
Remember this scandal? When the company was afraid of people doing something with his “giving the finger” to the camera. Which by the way I really doubt he was, and if he was, he needs to do it right.

Anyways, well thanks to them, someone did and well, we couldn’t help but put it up and share it with all of you. Quite frankly it’s pretty darn funny and I feel sorry for CL. If I were her, I’d demand an apology from Jiyong, because really, he walked in on this one and landed her in the middle of it. He has no one to blame but himself.

Oh yes and on top of that this, G-Dragon has been sponsored by Louis Vuitton to endorse shoes. LV is one of the most popular brand names around the world. Louis Vuitton has never sponsored anyone in Korea, so G-Dragon is the first celebrity to be endorsed. They have already given him a pair of shoes from Kanye West’s line. The only thing they want from GD is to wear it. The self-proclaimed ‘fashionista’ caught a big fish and gets to bathe in the luxery of sneakers that probably only took $30 to make but really cost $500.

The truth about ‘Heartbreaker’ Part III

g-dragon

Just a little more ‘I really don’t care’ about this issue news.

The owner’s of Flo rida’sRight Round” and Oasis’ “She’s electric” have made some statements regarding G-Dragon‘s supposed plagiarism.

They stated, “The 10 composers to ‘Right Round’ have not all expressed their opinion on this issue until. We had sent samples of GDragon’s songs to the parties involved for the 2 songs ‘Right Round’ and ‘She’s Electric.” Also, “There are indeed similarities between ‘Heartbreaker’ and ‘Right Round’ and between ‘Butterfly’ and ‘She’s Electric’. It is hard to say if it is plagiarism at this stage. We will all go with the final decision of the composers to the song.”*

Sony ATV commented that, “Sampling and remaking of a song by using part of the original should be allowed; but sampling without permission is not. The individual should try his/her best to make their own music/work every-time, so as to protect the copyright of others’ works. The piece of work should be the creator’s own expression and not just the idea or title.”*

All that means is that they should just use the original as inspiration. They do have a point though with the following trend. Many artists recycle beats, if they really want to get into it, they should come back to America and sue half of the artists now because at least 75% of the music has recycled beats. I can’t even begin to tell you how many songs I’ve heard on the radio and thought it was one song but in fact it was another.

Also there is this thing about following trend. There may be cases when people or music experts will listen to a song A and think that it plagiarises song B, but that is because listening to it makes one think about the special characteristics of song B.”*

If they’re going to say that G-Dragon plagiarized, then Teddy, GD and who ever worked on Big Bang‘s Haru Haru, Lies and Heaven needs to get on LMFAO butt for literally taking those songs and re-making it into “La La La“. If any of you who listen to that song and don’t hear Big Bang, you need to clean your ears.

About GD‘s naked girl shirt, you go boy. Who cares if he has a shirt of a naked woman? He’s a grown man, of age and probably wants some of his own. He’s crying out for help; if wearing a naked woman on a shirt is as close as he’s gonna get to a naked woman right now, let the guy be please. K Thanks.

Everyone, try to be open minded. Anti’s try to get a life and stop meddling in the lives of people who you wish were friends with or jealous of. Karma sucks you know.
