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.

    Offensive. As a artist she should of know that there are things you say in public and things you don't. Sure it's her opinion, but insulting other groups just makes her look bad.

    Well I will be propably hated for this comment but... Since when is Kyary making "art"? She is great model and has cute character but her singing is terrible and she is not that original... But maybe I just don't know enough?
    I'm not saying that the not-dating rule is a good thing but I don't think it's her place to criticize idols like that. She is trying hard to get attention too.

    In a lot of ways this is very similar to the way old Hollywood used to be. In there contracts be they male or female, there were very strict rules regarding relationships. They required that they always appear obtainable. If a relationship was allowed it was approve by the company they were contracted to and ended how and when they wanted it to. As a result, many of them kept secret relationships and children that no one was supposed to know about. Most American agencies have dropped this practice but it still exists in Asian and some European companies.

    Honestly all of them should be viewed as artists and human. They should be allowed to form relationships and live a semi normal life. Instead they tend to be treated like puppets, when they are done peforming they are put away in their little boxes.

    Love Kyray she kept it real and told it how it is :)
    Once your an idol there is no such thing has a love life and she isn't an idol so Kyray is allowed to have a life.

    I see what she means, although I'm sure not all idols just want to get the attention of men. I always thought it looked like a pretty fun job, with the peppy music and all.

    I like her statement, but maybe she had not said it in the right way.

    AND SHE DIDN'T EVEN COMMENT ON MIICHAN'S SCANDAL! (fyi. not raging nor complaining)

  • Posted by kagachi · 76,916 Jpops · 307 shares · 3 years ago  

    im a fan of both. and i agree that akb48 is an idol group and that she is an artist. but i dont agree with what she said about idols. idols pick out their audience's favourite points and strive their best in those areas. whereas artists are pretty much doing what THEY want.
