It's crazy on how many plays she's gotten with just two songs. I remember I was the one to create her last.fm page, filling out her bio, putting up her first photo, and even leaving her first shoutbox comment. And now her shoutbox is never inactive! I'm just butthurt that the top similar artists are all k-pop, I mean I like k-pop and all but she's not similar to them. capsule's not even there when Nakata is her producer, smh. BUT KEEP ON SLAYIN' KYARY!
