Miliyah Kato hand-draws cover of first novel, remains the new Picasso/Souseki


Singer-songwriter Kato Miliyah's upcoming first novel, "Umareta mama no Watashi wo" (9/22) will feature a cover hand-drawn by the artist herself. The book, which Kato worked on for a year, will be the story of a 22 year old nude painter who cannot find love, and the cover represents that by featuring the sketch of a naked woman.


On the seventh year of her career, Kato released "M BEST" which hit #1 on the Oricon weekly charts. This has been her third consecutive chart-topping album and has passed the 270,000 mark as of this week.

Wasn't sure if this was NSFW but I put it under a cut to be safe. Anyway, she's so talented. Singing, dancing, song-writing, drawing, and novel writing... is there anything she can't do?

I don't really know how to translate the title, I understand it but I don't know how to say it in English... "Umareta" means born, and "mama" expresses a condition or state, so it would be like "remaining born" or something, and then it's modifying "Watashi," which is I, and "wo" is an object marker and usually it needs some verb after it, but in advertisements or songs or poetry sometimes it will be left without any verb. so "...Me, who is in the state of having been born"?

basically IDK.
