Michishige Sayumi will be graduating from Morning Musume.'14 and Hello! Project this fall once the Morning Musume.'14's fall tour is completed.

News of her departure was announced on April 29th during the Yamaguchi concert of "Morning Musume.'14 Concert Spring Tour." Michishige, who is the current leader of Morning Musume led the group through 5 consecutive number one singles. When revealing her departure she stated,"I discussed it with Tsunku [record producer, vocalist, songwriter] and the agency, and I decided this year's fall tour was my time to graduate."

Michishige's reason of publicizing her graduation at this concert was explained by Tsunku, "To the fans, she wanted to announce it from her home-town Yamaguchi, so it was decided that she would announce it during the live today." However, as she did not want the members to be surprised she discussed this with them the night before the concert.

Michishige joined the group in 2003, becoming a 6th generation member and later (May, 2012) became the leader.

Yamamoobs Banned From Exclusive Spa After Requesting "Sexual Service"

According to the May 1st, 2014 issue of Shukan Bunshun(週刊文春), it is said that Tomohisa Yamashita(山下智久) had a shameful "misunderstanding" at a spa. Yamashita visited an exclusive spa in Tokyo and requested sexual service from the female massage therapist. After having the request rejected, he said, "It's me?" Even after learning his identity, he was still rejected and ended up getting banned from the spa. However, the spa is well known among celebrities to provide special service.

"Yamasahita has been here a few times already and often used our bedrock bath service. He came to our Minato-ku branch around November of 2012 and requested the female massage therapist to give him a service similar to a sex shop."
-Minato-ku Spa Worker

The high class exclusive spa has expanded to 25 stores across the country. The chain's facilities include luxurious sauna and bedrock bath in large private room. They also perform oil massage by female therapist with customer wearing only disposable paper underwear.
