I'm happy for Kumi. And to be quite honest, she needs a break. To take a breath, to mature, to think about the music she makes, etc. I was so excited about the ARENA tour, but I'm not disappointed, I think it will be better for her.
Your fans will keep supporting you, Kuu! :)

Is that soda bottle really the father?

I KID I KID

Congrats to Kuu
suzieeq_luv 19th-Dec-2011 05:34 am (UTC)
I was wondering how her promoting and tour schedule would look with all this recent news.
But there will be a new album and she looks so happy I could care less.

Yay Kuu-chan :DD
miiko96 19th-Dec-2011 05:37 am (UTC)
@gif: she's still kawaii even though she's crying! <333

i cannot wait for her album! X333
haruno21 19th-Dec-2011 05:39 am (UTC)
it´s one of the most important moments of her life, she needs time for herself
I love her hand on her belly on the second pic <3 so cute
juicepirate 19th-Dec-2011 06:05 am (UTC)
yesh
she really needs to rest and gain some weight tho.meh...i guess the female body can handle alot.
retahdedtim 19th-Dec-2011 06:33 am (UTC)
Well, yeah, women can push something the size of a watermelon out their hoo-ha, so, yes, the female body can handle a lot.
juicepirate 19th-Dec-2011 06:59 am (UTC)
what i implied exactly. yup.
hadashi_no_eden 19th-Dec-2011 08:34 am (UTC)
True but as the pregnancy goes on and on and you get bigger and bigger, the fewer activities you want to or are able to do.
toshi_hakari 19th-Dec-2011 06:11 am (UTC)
She looks really positively glowing :) I do hope everything's going right for her, especially the marriage and I wish for the baby to be healthy.
falling_cookie 19th-Dec-2011 06:19 am (UTC)
aw...congrats to her!
rosemaine 19th-Dec-2011 06:31 am (UTC)
I wonder what will she be wearing if she is to be performing Love me back on Kouhaku :)
retahdedtim 19th-Dec-2011 06:45 am (UTC)
I think it's weird how Japan kind of sentences women to bed rest when they are pregnant. You can continue to exercise throughout most of your pregnancy with little change to your routine (until you start to show and your feet swell up to massive proportions). I mean, she probably shouldn't be doing full-on concerts five times a week, but she could modify how much she does and how long the concert goes on and end the tour before she hits her third trimester. But really, it's whatever she wants and whatever makes her most happy.
taylorniw 19th-Dec-2011 07:53 am (UTC)
I wouldn't be surprised if she shortens her general workload even after the pregnancy, tbh.
retahdedtim 19th-Dec-2011 08:25 am (UTC)
That's normal. I just hope she doesn't flat out retire like a lot of Japanese women seem to do.
faisdodo 19th-Dec-2011 07:59 am (UTC)
It would have been epic if she pulled an M.I.A.!

retahdedtim 19th-Dec-2011 08:27 am (UTC)
If there is any woman in Japan who would perform 8 months pregnant in a see-through outfit, it would be Kuu.
coika 19th-Dec-2011 01:51 pm (UTC)
Would be a poor stunt on her part, though. (Career-wise in Japan; personally I think what M.I.A. did was badass.)

Basically when you pop out a kid and become a mom you have to maintain this image of purity/innocence... to the point that many men will no longer sleep with their wives after they give birth unless it's to have another child. I hope her husband doesn't fall into this category.
retahdedtim 19th-Dec-2011 08:10 pm (UTC)
She's never had that purity/innocent image going for her though. I don't know why she'd try it after a child. Though her image probably will change.
jiyeung 19th-Dec-2011 09:42 pm (UTC)
Namie has a kid, but her image is still sexy though
coika 20th-Dec-2011 02:30 am (UTC)
Her big image change after her pregnancy in order to combat falling sales is why she's still around. Her image isn't really considered sexy at all in Japan at this point and I'd say most of her outfit choices and dances are pretty tame.
coika 20th-Dec-2011 02:24 am (UTC)
Agreed she's basically sold on erokawaii/sex her whole career but it doesn't really mesh well with society's views of motherhood which could lose her a lot of fans/cause scandal. If she can change the country's views on this issue, more power to her, but I really don't think she has that much power.
inuhariko 19th-Dec-2011 05:00 pm (UTC)
This.
daydreamar 19th-Dec-2011 01:30 pm (UTC)
wait what-

pregnant?
devilhunter_04 19th-Dec-2011 06:21 pm (UTC)
Really not surprised about this, I kinda expected it. Congrats to Koda Kumi of course and I can't wait to see what the baby!
the_lilone 20th-Dec-2011 02:42 pm (UTC)
Lol another dekikon. Why am I not surprised?
newsvsyamapi 24th-Dec-2011 03:37 pm (UTC)
Feel sorry to hear that it is canceled but happy that she is pregnant XD
