muro-contrail: It’s been a while since I fooled around with gifs…I’m bored…I should probably sleep already, but I felt the strong need to share my love and appreciation for ayu with all of you ♥
randomstuff134: sodamnrelatable: take a moment to realize you have never seen your face in person, just reflections and pictures some scientists agree that if you saw a clone of yourself, you wouldn’t recognise it as you, because our idea of what we look like is so different from what we actually look like
Asian Stars and The USA: A History
Hikaru Utada: I am a celebrated singer-songwriter in Japan who is beloved by the entire country. I grew up in New York and speak perfect, unaccented English. I'm going to record an interesting, unique CD for the U.S., entirely in English, and try to make it in Hollywood.
BoA: Hello! I am an incredibly strong vocalist with a range people dream of and dance skills America hasn't seen in a pop star since Usher. Not only am I a legend in my home country of South Korea, I managed to become a best selling artist in Japan, paving the way for future Korean artists to find Asian-wide success. Now, I'm going to debut in the states with a dance CD written by proven hit makers.
Wonder Girls: We're a fun, colorful five member girl group reminiscent of the Spice Girls. We sing the sort of sugar-cute pop that's popular in Asia but not as accepted in the U.S. We are bravely going to give up our massive popularity in South Korea to promote our sugar-cute style to teenagers in America, slowly building up hype, never losing our flare. We will spend years and years working on our English and our debut, hooking up with established stars like Akon in the process. We even made a movie with Teen Nick.
Jin Akanishi: I'm a former member of an incredibly popular Japanese boy band. I left them for good to explore a career in the USA, studying English and working to achieve my dream, to sing and dance as an Asian star in America.
Girls' Generation: We're flirting with this market, performing on national, network television twice with our English song The Boys, written by one of Michael Jackson's old song writers. We are nine slim, attractive girls, two of whom are from the states and speak perfect English.
Psy: lol omg guys watch me dance like a horsey.
USA: YES! EXCELLENT!
Psy: Wait what?
thefunsucker: so Mii-chan broke down cyring. My reaction:
高橋みなみ in ネ申テレビ
Minami: as General Supervisor I always think I've to support everyone; I think I've to take one-two step(s) back, but after all... If something happens to junior members, I definitely get told by fans: "why don't you get mad at them?", and at that time I think: "in what way... (do you mean that)?"
Mr. Ishiba Shigeru: ...this is job. The people who're on the site are the ones who suffer hardship the most. And you as General Supervisor must take on your shoulder other girls' liability as well. This is job.
Minami: well, I actually know that in my mind, but however I feel such disappointment...
Mr. Ishiba Shigeru: why the hell has this to happen, that's what you think right?
Minami: yeah, why the hell?!
