Singer and ex-Morning Musume member Maki Goto announced her hiatus from the entertainment industry, starting on January 2012.
Maki Goto announced on her official homepage that from January 2012 she will be on hiatus from the entertainment industry for an indefinite period of time.
As reason she cited the death of her mother in January 2010, explaining:
"I feel very thankful for everyone's presence. But there's a large hole that has opened inside of me that can't be buried. Until now, I've always lived for someone else other than me. I began thinking that I want to try living for myself now, instead of someone else. Not as Gomaki, but I wish to return to my normal self as Goto Maki."
Until her hiatus, she plans to release a new digital single in July, followed by an album in the fall. Moreover, Maki Goto will perform at Avex's a-nation tour this summer and in December she will say goodbye the her fans with a final concert.
