Kyary Pamyu Pamyu Reveals Thoughts On Minami Minegishi Scandal

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu was a guest on the French television program "Le Petit Journal" while visiting the country for her world tour "100%KPP WORLD TOUR 2013". During the show, the singer discussed the Minami Minegishi scandal that captured international interest.

"In the Japanese idol world, they are very strict about relationships. It's like in return for male fans' support, idols keep out of relationships and love, devoting themselves to their jobs as idols," Kyary stated when asked about the scandal.

The singer explained that she could love freely and openly since she wasn't an idol, distinguishing herself as a true artist. She criticized idols as people who act a certain way to get men to notice them.

"In my opinion, and idol's job is to suck up to men and do what they can to get their attention. What I do though is something guys will never love. What I'm doing is more like an artist than an idol," she said.

Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's world tour brought her to Europe during the beginning of February. The singer will be returning to Japan for more performances before traveling internationally once again.

Where's the lie though?

No lie, just silly that she's dependent on a male producer to create everything she does so that she can then call herself an "artist."

concur, it seems that without Nakata Yasutaka she almost certainly would not even be in the music industry.

Her sense of design and overall visual acumen strikes me as particularly exceptional though. So, I'll give her credit, she sells what he gives her big time.

*****to fund everything she does

he most certainly doesn't create everything she does, he's more in charge of the music.

that's probably because he was able to fund for her designs to be made into outfits, she helped with the designs for her clothing
