    Ayumi Hamasaki’s Winter diary ~A7 Classical~ [Updates + Review]

    Well, well, well. Ayumi Hamasaki is preparing to take over Japan with her new classical-inspired remix album, Winter diary ~A7 Classical~ (yes, it most likely is named after A ONE + sixxxxxx… I guess we’re lucky it wasn’t SEVVVVVVVEN). “Winter diary” is, of course, thought to be the sequel...

    Ayumi Hamasaki Improves J-Pop with “sixxxxxx”

    It’s time to celebrate! The Empress of J-Pop, Ayumi Hamasaki, released sixxxxxx today! In case you’re wondering why the title is so strange, I’m about 83% sure that it stands for “sinkhole,” which is where every other J-Pop album released this year needs to go after hearing this mini-album...

    Affordable Fashion: Kiko Mizuhara’s “Furla” Milk Bag

    If yesterday someone would have told me that I would be writing about a milk-themed bag this weekend, I would have probably just nodded my head because God knows I’ve written about more ridiculous things. G-Dragon’s favorite girl and one of my (Japan-centered) modeling loves Kiko Mizuhara posed for...

    “A ONE:” The Best Album Since “Abbey Road” [REVIEW]

    … For today, at least. Hear me out though–it’s a really good album! Whereas Colours focused on Western-like EDM songs, A ONE brings back the J-Pop Ayumi that everyone fell in love with years ago. Aided by the likes of Yuta Nakano, Tasuku, JJ LIN, Utada Hikaru and Tetsuya...

    Kyary Pamyu Pamyu’s “Mondai Girl” PV Gives Us The Starchild We Didn’t Think We Needed

    If you would have told me back in 2011 that the cute girl from PonPonPon was going to blossom into this amazing mess (I say this with the outmost affection) of brilliance, electronic sugar, and impeccable fashion sense, I would not have believed you. I don’t think I can watch...

    Jiyoung Gets Dangerous For Japanese Movie ‘Assassination Classroom’

    Ex-KARA member Kang Jiyoung is absolutely brilliant. After signing with entertainment agency Sweet Power, the former K-pop idol released a risky photobook that should go down in history as one of the biggest acts of fan service in the world. And now, she’s starring as Irina Jelavić, a seductive...

    Jolin Tsai and Namie Amuro Are Fox Demons In “I’m Not Yours” MV

    My ultimate girl crush Jolin Tsai and immortal popstar Namie Amuro transformed into nine-tailed foxes in the masterpiece music video for I’m Not Yours. This song was addicting enough (“All of my girls – what?!”) and now it has a legendary music video. I think if there would have...
