Matsumoto Jun: I wanna be a pro baseball player! I wanna be active in lots of games, and have a large house and cool car.

Sakurai Sho: I wish to be a musician in the future. It’s because I’ve been learning the electone since young and I love music.

Aiba Masaki: My future dream is to become a company president. I wanna be a cool president who wears a beard.

AKB48's Oshima Yuko debuts her new hairstyle

AKB member, Oshima Yuko revealed her new hairstyle on the final day of AKB48's first Tokyo Dome concert.

During the song, Scandalous ni Ikou, the duet song of Oshima and Kojima Haruna, Oshima’s new hairstyle was displayed in the stadium’s display. Excited stirs filled the Dome.

That’s understandable, because Oshima drastically changed her hairstyle from the previous feminine semi-long hair to a new “shaved side” style.

With regards to Oshima’s hairstyle change, Sashihara Rino talked during MC, “It seems there’s someone who shaved a part of her hair as Tokyo Dome made her too high.” Kojima Haruna followed, by saying “I was so surprised, too, when I saw it”.

Shinoda Mariko’s blog post, which was published the next day has a photo that clearly shows how the “shaved side” of Oshima’s head looks like. The photo says that Oshima shaved the right side of her head til back of her right ear, and colored it stunning gold.

Female celebrities under 20 that’s hard to believe that they are still in their teens

Actress Narumi Riko recently celebrated her 20th birthday and enjoyed the taste of champagne for the first time in her life. She already has been in the industry for a very long time and over the years she was always very composed and mature whenever she appeared in public. In recent years, she also has rarely played characters with that certain naivety that’s typical for girls her age.

On that occasion, a new poll was put up on the mobile polling service of goo and NTT DoCoMo that presented their members with a list of young female celebrities who have yet to celebrate their 20th birthday but are mature like Narumi.

It was a list of actresses, singers, idols, and models who usually appear and/or act more mature than they actually are and goo wanted to find out who their users would select.
