Industry Insiders: Whos the biggest douchebag in JE?

Music industry insiders comment on who they believe exhibites the most courtesy and most douchebaggery out of all the JE boys. Just leaving this here.

The Nice Guys:

Most industry insiders agree that TOKIO’s Nagase Tomoya and Kokubun Taichi are the best JE talents you can work with. One director says that they actually listen to what you have to say and are able to look at things through the staff’s eyes. This makes a lot of sense as TOKIO are the only JE group that has an entire show about them farming in the countryside. That’s almost like voluntarily subjecting themselves to Cultural Revolution style forced labor camps on a weekly basis. You’ve got to either be paid an obscene amount of money or genuinely be an OK person to enjoy this, and I doubt it’s the former.

As for every other JE talent?
“Even if they’re polite to you, you can tell they don’t really care and just do what they’re told to. Still, they’re pros and they produce a good finished product.” 

It only gets worse from here out.

Mildly Douchy:

One writer says: ”I was really disappointed in Arashi’s Sakurai Sho. When I interviewed him, he was very argumentative - demanding to know what medium this interview will be presented in, what the purpose of the interview is, and even how to answer some questions. He conducted this interview while smoking a cigarette and looking really annoyed.”
I guess they couldn’t handle how TYRA! Sho is. Whatever, I think he’s just practicing for his inevitable entry into politics once Arashi stops making enough money for him.
A magazine editor says, “When I was trying to have a meeting with Arashi’s Matsumoto Jun, he showed up with some stylist friend of his and they just giggled while flipping through our magazine the entire time without listening to a word I said. If he wasn’t in Johnny’s I would have lost it.”
Matsujun would be the only Johnny’s that pisses people off because he can’t stop bromancing with his hair school friends.


A TV staffperson says, “V6’s Miyake Ken is not only demanding but aslo moody, so he’s impossible to work with. He’s especially obnoxious about his outfits, so if he’s in a bad mood he’ll go through all the clothes on a rack and declare ‘I can’t wear any of this crap! You don’t have a clue what I want to wear!” 

I’m sorry but I cannot stop laughing at the idea of Miyake Ken throwing a diva tantrum because some stylist didn’t find the right grandpa sweater/pastel women’s t-shirt combination for him. Imagine him yelling “I CANT WEAR ANY OF THIS CRAP” in his chipmunk voice! Someone make this into a reality tv show pls.

A photographer’s assistant says this about Kanjani8/NEWS’s Nishikido Ryo, “When he’s in a good mood, he just dicks around. When he’s not he either tells you to shut up or doesn’t give you an actual answer at all. He usually ignores the photographer’s instructions.” 

Nishikido Ryo: every middle school boy you’ve known in your entire life. 

King of The D-bags:

Says a drama staff member: “Everything about SMAP’s Kimura Takuya isn’t bad: he remembers all the staff’s names and frequently gives nice gift to everyone. However, no on can say anything to him and everyone has to listen to what he says.” A magazine editor says, “I once went to interview Kimutaku’s co-star on set. Kimutaku kept on glaring at us, so his co-star hurriedly finished the interview to continue with filming.”
Well, I guess you can’t expect the #1 in the host club known as JE to actually be nice and care about your feelings. Or maybe he’s doing this on purpose so people get sucked in to his gruff exterior, but then melt when he shows you his sensitive side? It’s all a ploy!

don't know much about them, but there's quite a few JE guys that just have the 'he looks like a douche' vibe to them.

lol'ing at the article nonetheless.
crimsonbreeze 22nd-Sep-2011 09:57 pm (UTC)
Well, Taku has all the right to be a douchebag. He's the King of Japan anyways.
koichiko 22nd-Sep-2011 09:57 pm (UTC)

This corresponds perfectly with my 'Sho and Jun are the most conventionally attractive but bitchiest, should be called The Bitches instead of Sakumoto' comment.

That said, everyone loves the fact that Jun is a bitch so its perfectly accepted and everyone wants it that way. Just don't cross him and you're cool. But with Sho, its like, "hes a douche. gtfo."

Also Miyake Ken? lol.

Kanjani8/NEWS’s Nishikido Ryo, “When he’s in a good mood, he just dicks around. When he’s not he either tells you to shut up or doesn’t give you an actual answer at all. He usually ignores the photographer’s instructions.”

I just love this man XDDDDDDDD
hadashi_no_eden 22nd-Sep-2011 10:06 pm (UTC)
Ryo has admitted to this. I can't remember where or when he said it now though. I love it too. Most of the interview questions are so stupid.
mintceres 22nd-Sep-2011 10:03 pm (UTC)
lol not surprised in any way.

*waits for wank*
mintceres 22nd-Sep-2011 10:07 pm (UTC)
oh re-read the article:
demanding to know what medium this interview will be presented in, what the purpose of the interview is, and even how to answer some questions. He conducted this interview while smoking a cigarette and looking really annoyed.
well... I also would like to know what I'll be answering (in most cases stupid) questions for and what target audience it is. Idol mag? Teen mag? adult-oriented mag?
+ I'd be annoyed, too, if I get asked at least once a month which member I'd date if any of them were a girl...

*rolls eyes* at least he takes this stuff serious
yuki_yang 22nd-Sep-2011 10:03 pm (UTC)

I thought for sure Nino would be listed here.
koichiko 22nd-Sep-2011 10:21 pm (UTC)
Actually, as bratty as Nino is by nature, he is a super diligent worker. Many of the people he has worked with have said that he is always super prepared (to the point where he doesn't even bring his script unto the set) and that he is basically open for anything when it comes to interviews.

Arashi is genereally are, as far as I have heard, very considerate of their staff and are close friends with some of them (Jun even went to New York with one of his friends who was once a staff member on one of their shows).
very_pinku 22nd-Sep-2011 10:19 pm (UTC)
lol Ken, I can believe it. I don't think he's a douche but he seems
VERY blunt and up to your face if he has something he doesn't like.
But I guess that could be considered rude.
And with Ryo, I heard he just has frequent mood swings.
He's rather ok when sane but when alcohol involved, different story from what I remember.

And I think after putting up with thousands of magazine interviews with practically the same material,
I think I would demand more detail and see if it's any brand new information, relevant with my current project, or maybe give some inputs to improve the questions.
So I wouldn't consider Sho's attitude messed up. But then again, 'too outspoken' I guess.

Kimura seems actually one of the better JE guys though.
He seems demanding but I think he's extremely harsh on himself as well.
And he seems very honest with who he likes and doesn't like,
so maybe that turns people off.
linhmy 23rd-Sep-2011 01:58 am (UTC)
True. I think some people are turned off because of his straightforwardness. He's professional and harsh on himself. I think having an personal interview in the middle of filming would disturb the whole process and other people. Kimura has rights to do that. The points is that media is media-they are haters lolzzz. The same for other JE boys, they are human, why they can't be 'human ' ( i mean, bitch' lolz).
arisan 22nd-Sep-2011 10:19 pm (UTC)
Lol. Is it sad that I can imagine all these scenarios actually having taken place? Except Sho's, but I place too much faith in him.

To be honest, I think to be an idol at all you have to be two things: slightly vain, and an overall decent human being. If not, sooner or later your true colors start to show. I mean... as an idol you have to undergo a certain amount of teasing and, especially if you're a Johnny's, you have to put up with doing a lot of awkward crap on national T.V.. And it's not even like they get paid butt tons to do it so... I guess I completely understand the occasional diva trip. XD
arisan 22nd-Sep-2011 10:26 pm (UTC)
Ok, now that I'm done being a buzz kill - I laughed out loud sfh at ken's part. "I can't wear any of this crap!"

*dies laughing*

Ken being a diva. LMAO. Too amusing xDDD
