Erena Ono answers her detractors

1: なまコンφ ★ 2013/06/25(火) 21:19:11.08 ID:???0
 (Related post here)
Erena Ono receives word that she's being slandered on the Internet with comments such as:
"Shocking. Do her parents know what she's doing? It's already like prostitution."
"How miserable. Doesn't she question her own actions?"
"Erepyon... you're finished..."

To which Ereno replies on her Twitter:
"Hm? I'm just expressing my love to the people who came here to love (and see) me*. I don't think people should be saying what's good and what isn't."
"I can do whatever I want to. The fans come to see me with their love, I'm just approaching them too with my love for them. That's natural, right?"
"Sorry to disappoint you, but I won't stop doing this."
"I'm seriously mad. I'm pissed."

* Translator's note: 愛に(会いに)来てくれた = Ai ni kite kureta = came to see me (会いに来てくれた); but she intentionally used another kanji for Ai (
会い) which is "" or "love" so it literally translates to "came to love me".

This is Kaho?

The many rumors about Sho Sakurai

1: 読者の声 2012/08/25(土) 23:20:46.54 ID:H0hUGAwX
(partial translation)
Sho Sakurai (30) has this image of a serious and pleasant young man, but it is also well-known that he is quick-tempered and that he thinks fans are "invisible people". The incident where he glared and shouted "Don't come here--", "You're eyesores" at the fans who watched his on-location shoots to greet him "Great work!" is pretty famous. There are numerous other incidents where he called fans "ugly" and "pig", where he threw an umbrella at them, where he spat on them. There was also a recent incident reported by Shukan Josei where he slammed a fan's cellphone and destroyed it.

A fan of his from his Johnny's Jr. days says:
"He's always been like that. Nothing has changed."
"He was a boy who loved to go clubbing and loved goukon parties until his early 20s. His hair was dyed brown, and he had piercings back then, right? He's baby-faced but he looked so flashy. He used to like the gal-types, halfies, and gaudy girls and was seen walking with girls like those, preferring them over the pure and clean ones. He was not serious at all. But don't you think that's just normal for celebrities like him? There's no reason for me to cease being a fan."

Sakurai apparently changed when he was chosen to be a newscaster in 2006 for "NEWS ZERO".
"As soon as he started work on the program, he disappeared for a bit from the club circuit and he didn't do goukon parties anymore. But he still didn't change the way he treated his fans."
Sho Sakurai was allegedly spotted recently at Shinjuku 2-chome's gay bar, leading to speculation that he's bisexual.

"I think he liked the bar which a gay friend showed him and he seems to be frequenting that place, sometimes alone, just to drink. But I don't think he's bisexual. I think he only has sex with women, and I heard that he constantly calls over prostitues to his Roppongi apartment. I don't think he's romantically involved, it's just the relationship between a prostitute and a client. But calling her to his home and not a hotel must mean that he's opened his heart to this woman." (showbiz insider)

"I know he's got a bad personality and that he loves women, but I still cheer him on. I think it's pathetic if a fan thinks to herself that he betrayed us." (same fan as above)

Airi Suzuki caught on a bus with Chinese model Raycley

1: 禿の月φ ★ 2013/06/26(水) 19:01:36.26 ID:???P
A picture of °C-ute's Airi Suzuki being intimate with a man on a bus on her way to school is circulating on the Internet and is causing shockwaves among her fans. The man was later identified to be the halfie model Raycley. Raycley denied relationship allegations "We're just friends".

It was found out from his Twitter posts that Raycley works part time in a noodle shop, and Airi Suzuki commented on her blog last May 51 that "I went to a noodle shop", leading to speculation that she went to the shop where Raycley works. Raycley then used his own account and posted his comments on a Chinese Social Networking Site:
"I only taught her how to speak some Chinese."
"I've only thought of Airi as a friend."
"I don't have any ulterior motives whatsoever."

He also declared that he will distance himself from her.
All these posts have now been deleted.

Net comments:
"Even if they're just sitting together, their shoulders are too close to one another!"
"So it seems that she's enjoying her university life more than being an idol."

*As of this writing, Airi Suzuki has denied the allegations and apologized on her blog (bottom of this entry for the partial translation)

"She's full of that 'service spirit'."
"This is amazing..."
"I feel she'll be assaulted one of these days."

Why isn't Matsuoka of TOKIO that popular with the ladies?

1 :ななしじゃにー:2013/04/26(金) 23:19:43.45 ID:jbPN6DBTO



* Good-looking
* Tall and long-legged

He's got all the good things going on for him, but why is he the most unpopular member in TOKIO? If you just think calmly about it, he's almost on par with Nagase in all aspects.

Tomoharu Shoji closes his Twitter account due to abuse from followers, suspected former boyfriend of Mari Yaguchi

1: ペルシャ(家) 2013/06/18(火) 10:42:33.79 ID:DLRqvhuf0
Tomoharu Shoji of comedy duo Shinagawa-Shoji deleted his Twitter account on June 12. He comments on his blog:

"It was the best place to communicate with many different people."

"But it is a reality that lowlifes dwell in such places, mention things that you wouldn't think a fellow human being would say and just run away. I've just gotten irritated with people like that."

According to a comedy industry insider:
"It was about the Yaguchi illicit scandal. Someone dug up the 'broadcasting accident' that happened 4 years ago."

* They did a segment called "Bouro Taikai" (exposure tournament) in the "Asa made Shabekuri007" corner of NTV's 24-jikan terebi of August 2009. There, Shoji was asked "which other celebrities has he had a relationship with other than Mikitty (Miki Fujimoto, formerly of Morning Musume)?".

* Shoji whispered the answer to the host Shinya Ueda, to which Ueda reacted, "Uwaaahh.... Wait, we can't announce this answer". Shoji then turned away from the camera and revealed the answer to the talents in the studio.

* They muted the audio, but Chinatsu Wakatsuki, one of the participants was heard whispering "Yaguchi? Yaguchi? Yayuyo? Yayuyo?"

* The tweets Shoji received were "How was Yaguchi? ww", "So you're also one of the hole brothers ww".
