Kame, the beauty charisma?

KAT-TUN’s Kamenashi Kazuya is aiming to be a beauty-charisma. There are even plans for him to publish a make-up book.

“People in the industry have always praised Kame for his make-up skills. There was even a rumor that leaked about how Kame’s professional make-up artist quit because he/she saw how great Kame was with a make-up brush and lost his/her confidence in cosmetology.” Said an entertainment insider.

Kame came up with his own make-up technique by himself. He has even claimed that he would never let a pro teach him how to put on make-up. This interest in make up has even spawned some cross-dressing rumors in the past.

“When he has a day off, he’d dress up in women’s clothing and make-up by himself. He enjoyed those times immensely, so he wasn’t concerned about becoming good at it.”

Tabloids claimed that Kame first developed his interest in cross-dressing when he had to try women clothes on for a fashion magazine three years ago. It is said that Kame likes London-style bisexual clothing (I’m guessing they mean androgynous?) But it seems like Kame has another reason about publishing this make-up book aside from sharing his love for cosmetology.

Actor Mokomichi has a corner on ZIP! called MOCO’s Kitchen that averages around 12-13%, a pretty high number for a morning talk show. Later, inspired by the corner, he published three recipe books that sold more than 250,000copies! As a consequence, Mokomichi became popular amongst housewives.

“Kame is aiming for the same business plan as Mokomichi.” Kame aims to fill the niche of bored housewives who have the TV on in the morning while doing house work. Mokomichi gained popularity again by taking part in the 3min cooking segment. As a handsome man, it is rare for a guy like him to find enjoyment in activities traditionally done by women. Kame saw the possibility in exploring that niche market by being an idol that can introduce simple make-up techniques to women.

I'm pretty sure that was for a woman.. The sleeve length looks to long to be a for a male.

I think that the male/female speculation rose from the assumption that he was playing a female geisha in the whole performance, however male geishas were even more popular than their female counterparts at "that time" aka 1582 (it's not until the 18th century that female geishas began to take over that field) so what he wore could also be a costume for male geishas, but it's just my opinion anw.

in the performance, he performed the female and the male versions of the song right?

That's a mystery. There are many speculations concerning the performance at that time based on the historical event that happened in 1582: The 2 characters that Kame portrayed could be Nobunaga/Nouhime, Nobunaga/Ranmaru, or Ranmaru/Ranmaru. Personally, I am in favour of the theory that Kame was acting as Ranmaru the whole time - the lady-like side when he was near Nobunaga, and the fierce side in battle. But that's just my guess - well someone's better ask the performer himself XD
On the other hand, I remember that Kame used to answer on his radio programme that 1582 was written in a Sengoku lady's point of view, but then again, the lyrics of the concert version is different from that of the album version, so...
