Akanishi Jin's Yabagao Concerns Fans
The string of "drug scandals" from Oshio Manabu and Sakai Noriko are still dragging on in the entertainment industry. We've all seen the Cyber Nori-P 'tweaking DJ play" video and there are stories of clubs and outside raves being shown as hotbeds of drugs, but now some old pictures of KAT-TUN's Akanishi Jin have surfaced again and are causing a stir.
"The pictures were taken about a year ago, I guess. Before, some pictures of Akanishi being crazy at a club leaked from Facebook, and they seemed to have leaked the same way this time too. Looking back, there's no Johnny's talent that's had this many private pictures leaked of them. You can sure see how he's surrounded by some 'great friends' ha." (magazine staff)
The pictures of him with singer BENI, who he was rumored to have dated at one point, and another with him real close with another half-Japanese girl have made him into someone who shocks his fans. But more than that, what's crazy is his face.
"His eyes look blank and he looks pale; he looks real busted. Totally wasted... but with this timing, all I can think of is drugs." (same magazine staff)
But whether Akanishi himself knows that the pictures have leaked, it's amazing how he hasn't changed a thing about his lifestyle.
"In August, KAT-TUN went all around for their summer concerts, but during that time Akanishi would still haunt the clubs as usual. One time, there was a day he was late for rehearsal and the word amongst concerned fans was 'Maybe... he's being investigated??' haha. In the end, it seems he just went out all night the day before and it was just a result of oversleeping. Much ado about nothing, right?" (fan)
In this crazy lifestyle, at once point "best friends" Yama-P and actor Shirota Yuu have now turned on him, and now he spends his time with former tennis player Miyao (who was arrested for drugs last year) and former NEWS member Kusano.
"Even during this tour, there were days when he was super happy, like shouting 'dickkkk' during his MCs over and over again, but then also days where he was all sulky and wouldn't take off his sunglasses or come out for encores. He seemed a bit unstable, mentally. He's always been one to vent his emotions, but he's not a kid anymore so I'd like him to get some professionalism and get serious about work." (same fan)
"Bandage," which stars Akanishi, opens 1/16/10, so he'll soon start promotion for it. Maybe he should look into showing some restraint regarding his "club activities" before more weird stories come out?

My question: is jin's skanky escapades more or less interesting than koki's butt tattoo?
