Becky Cruel's Foray Into Singing

Well, it looks like Becky Cruel had made her singing debut on two NicoNico utattemite (karaoke) themed CD albums.

Clearly aiming for the NicoNico-obsessed otaku, Tokuma Japan released two albums called の、アッパー祭り。 (No, Upper Matsuri.) and の、バラード祭り。 (No, Ballad Matsuri.) respectively.

Becky joins the ranks of other popular singers from the site as she covers 男女 (Danjo) for the No, Upper Matsuri. album and has an original song 遠い空 雲をくぐり (Tooi Sora Kumo wo Kuguri) for the No, Ballad Matsuri. album.

Fukakyon is a Nail Queen

Today actress Fukada Kyoko (27), simply known as Fukakyon, has been given the the tile of the "Nail Queen 2009" in the actress category.

In 2006 she already earned herself the same title and is known for her love for nail arts. "I’ll work hard to be able to stand here again next year." She proclaimed with much ambition.

Recently it has been rumored that her good friend Higashiyama Noriyuki is in a relationship with fellow actress Kimura Yoshino, but Fukakyon decided rather not to make a comment on this matter. However, when she got asked about her own happiness, she responded with a sweet smile: "Yes, I am." Looks like her relationship with young actor Shimizu Ryutaro (21), the third son of famous talento Shimizu Akira (55), is doing really well these days.

Singer Tsuchiya Anna also got the award as well as the model Masukawa Tsubasa, actor Ishida Junichi and actress Daichi Mao (special prize).
