Katori Shingo & Yamapi to appear in drag for “Monster” PV




Single “MONSTERS” to be released in October 28th by the unit “The MONSTERS” formed by Katori Shingo (35) and Yamashita Tomohisa (27), revealed the PV of the coupling song “Monster” in November 8th. At the beginning of the said PV, they appear performing in drag.

“Monster” is a cover of Pink Lady’s big hit by the same name released in 1978, and that’s where the idea of the PV came from. Katori, who has already experienced cross-dressing with popular characters, like Shingo Mama talked about at Yamashita’s first time challenging cross-dressing, “Yamashita Tomohisa, gained a lot of attention, considering this was the first time he dresses like that”, he grinned. Yamashita on the other hand, “It was uncomfortable as expected, but I ended up having fun while dancing. I must be careful in order to avoid turning this into a habit (laugh)”. The said PV is included in the Limited Edition B of the single.

LOL Pretty & scary at the same time~
And what's happened with the part when on the question whether he'd do a drag one day Pi very passionately stated 'NEVER IN MY LIFE!!! MY SENCE OF PRIDE IS TOO HIGH FOR THIS KIND OF STUFF!! NEVAHR!!1!' (or smth similar) XDD
Man, he's really changed his way of being an idol...
Cannot say anything about Shingo though - singing as a female is practically his 2nd job XD

remembering how stubborn he is about cross dressing idea and 'my pride is to high for it' really gave me a shock about this~
well... you are not a real johnnys if you don't cross dress~
traviell Look what I found though11th-Nov-2012 12:46 pm (UTC)

It's like... O_______________o
And this was year 2004, judging by his horrific hair ><
I think he got damaged after skits like this one XD (and the one with a cow XD btw there also was Keii. KoyaPi are so ridiculously & adorably silly together XD)

The question is rather how Yamapi managed to put off his inevitable cross-dressing debut for so long. :) Is there anyone left in JE(in their 20s and 30s) who hasn't cross-dressed???(If there is...they will.)
xanithofdragons 9th-Nov-2012 07:42 pm (UTC)
I wondered that too, lol. How'd he not cross-dress for so long?
yuuki_saya 9th-Nov-2012 07:56 pm (UTC)
Pi did it in PPOI, so it's rather a very long hiatus for him crossdressing...
rotationstation 9th-Nov-2012 08:27 pm (UTC)
Which, in itself is quite an achievement in JE. :)
mikarocker 9th-Nov-2012 05:45 pm (UTC)
Didn't Yamapi cross dress in PPOI? Or is that so old it doesn't count xD
edneichon 9th-Nov-2012 07:43 pm (UTC)

“It was uncomfortable as expected, but I ended up having fun while dancing. I must be careful in order to avoid turning this into a habit (laugh)”.

As much as I don't mind, I hope you'll not.
This is too much of a shock considering Pi is the only Johnnys who never cross dress before.
"I had too much pride to do it(cross dressing)" - Pi
Yeah right...
And I got the feeling this is so much Shingo's idea and like it or not, Pi just have to comply. Either way, still enjoying this~
edneichon 9th-Nov-2012 09:23 pm (UTC)
Too many feelings. This two are going to kill me !!
TOMO!!!!!!!!

but my body is ready!
lelomew 9th-Nov-2012 09:49 pm (UTC)
HAHAHA~ Ah, Yamapi... Got to listen to the senpai.
pocariporii 9th-Nov-2012 11:24 pm (UTC)
I still remember when Yamapi adamantly refused about cross dressing as a girl when Maki teased him about it on their Kurosagi movie promo...lolx...

Oh, Yamapi...

Yamapi is so much pride about cross-dressing before. He said himself too. but I bet he can't do anything if shingo innocently said "Let's do it"
exdream1999 10th-Nov-2012 01:36 am (UTC)
LOL

He never stood a chance.

He's just lucky that Shingo hasn't had them perform the song live in drag (yet).
yuna_cha 10th-Nov-2012 01:02 am (UTC)
LOL Yamapi.His first time was at 27 years old. so late. but he must struggle with his pride before do it.
cheekmunk0409 10th-Nov-2012 01:24 am (UTC)
Yeah, it was pretty shocking to see him crossdress after his refusals all these years... but what a pretty girl he makes!

But, see, on the other hand, you have Shingo who's never met a chance to cross dress he didn't say no to.

And if the choice is between his pride and saying no to Shingo, Pi's pride never stood a chance.
exdream1999 10th-Nov-2012 01:36 am (UTC)
The most beautiful thing I've seen this week.

='D
iheartkimura 10th-Nov-2012 05:32 am (UTC)
SAME HERE!
wanderingreen 10th-Nov-2012 01:51 am (UTC)
Ahah he did it before a few times as a junior for magazine shoots and twice for tv. But I guess this is his first as an adult poor Pi :p.
iheartkimura 10th-Nov-2012 05:34 am (UTC)
...And I knew they were going to do it when I watched Pink Lady's video of the MONSTERS xD THANK YOU BEAUTIFUL MEN!

And what an awesome senpai Shingo is! Just AWESOME influence over Yamapi!
lol "I must be careful in order to avoid turning this into a habit"
HE WAS TALKING ABOUT SHINGO WHEN HE SAID THAT. It's just the normal life of that man.

kionad 10th-Nov-2012 12:54 pm (UTC)
All I can say is...

YES!!!! FINALLY! XD

For a long time I've wondered what Yamapi would look like in drag (as weird as that sounds) and now I can see it! I feel like I should be thanking Shingo.
blahblah 10th-Nov-2012 01:15 pm (UTC)
Sempai's wisdom <3 Thank you Shingo! You're one of the best things that happened lately with Pi~
