The absolutely tiresome and irksome Takeda Tetsuya-Kamenashi affair
DISCLAIMER: I’ve only briefly scanned through that jap article, despite being dead beat plus I’ve had school for the WHOLE day and it’s only about midnight now.. so excuse once again the bad translation. HAHA (it’s so uncool to start out with a disclaimer like that BUT. )
SO. Takeda Tetsuya RETRACTS the contents of the column in which he RETRACTS the contents of the column in which he makes all those REVELATIONS about Kame’s dreams of marriage and being a fashion designer. –>
However, there was not much follow-up to this in the REST of the article so I highly suspect I’ve missed out something here. Anyways.
THEN, Takeda Tetsuya, old silly man that he is, goes on to make some rather nasty comments about Kame. Okay I’m not the sort of hyper+defensive fan who flames anti-Kame entries and threatens trojan viruses or whatever, but like wasn’t Takeda the first to break that TRUST between “teacher” and “student” (since their r/ship was frequently alluded to it) by writing whatever he did, and now, he’s saying that Kame, though popular with girls, is the type-of-guys that ain’t popular amongst guys?
Mmmm. Takeda goes on to explain that there are two types of PRETTY boys, the type that other guys won’t get jealous of, and the type that other guys WILL. So thanks for the analysis, I’m sure 1) all of us sortaaa knew that from school, but even if we didn’t 2) how OLD are you to be playing sourgrapish teenager politics like this man? DEAR ME.
Anyway, obviously Kame , according to Takeda, belongs to the SECONd type of guy. Then he waddles on and says that Kame is known for being very courteous, respecting etiquette, and precisely BECAUSE of his good manners his popularity+reputation increases. Then Takeda adds, spitefully, that if other people do the same (bowing the head, whatever) it doesn’t have the same effect. Others still have the misconception that person X has a bad attitude, despite X having apologised. “Why is it so?” Takeda asks rhetorically. “COS of his PRETTY FACE, da yo neee?” O_O erps. Ditto what I said above, so spiteful + childish.
To prove his point, that everybody is just mesmerized by Kame’s pretty face and thus fail to see his real and wretched character, Takeda tells us another anecdote (I wonder if there’ll be another column in which he retracts everything he says here O_O ). Takeda says that there was a time when random people were alone in the dressing/make-up room or something, and some guy was joking with Kame ” You’re damn kakkoii right?” and added, “So is your nose plastic or what?”
To which Kame replied, ” なら、鼻を触ってみろ！”(nara, hana wo sawattemiro!) Come on, we can all say the romaji together! *imaginary audience chanting* anw: 1) i thought it was a pretty cool retort 2) kinda useful when on holiday in japan. *spotlight on superoldgranny’s cute button nose, as superoldgranny smiles condescendingly at everybody else* It means, “well, try touching my nose then you BAKABAKABAKA!”
Takeda then adds that everybody in the room got very alarmed +tense after he said that, as though banking on the majority’s testimony + credibility to reinforce the reliability of what he said. But guess what ah-pek, youtotallywipedoutyourcredibilityALREADYLAH!
I find this incredibly amusing yet strange, and even granting the possibility that whatever Takeda says about Kame is true. WELL. The Geinou world IS about a CHIO FACE innit?! Like seriously, it’s the onus of the celebrity to LOOK GOOD, it’s the onus of the COMPANY to make sure their bevy of beauties SEEM 1) Morally upright 2) Single 3) Scandal -free (which only brings us back to 1) ). (and well if you don’t have a CHIO FACE, you better have some goddam talent then. )
Whether kame’s personality is angelic or as Takeda says is BESIDES the point. I’m just TERRIBLY irritated by Takeda’s vacillation and primary school mentality here. That and today was a BAD DAY *drowns in soju* yea right like i have any
