Aww, man, we definitely need to bring this back. Hmm, lessee here.
Today, Jpop Idol Niigaki Risa was arrested for assaulting her fellow bandmate, Michishige Sayumi, at one of their live concerts. In the middle of one of their more energetic songs, the girls had been dancing together and hugging one another, when all of a sudden, Niigaki lunged at Michishige and started to beat her senseless.
It took a combined effort of all the other girls to pull the enraged Sub-Leader away from her victim. Niigaki was heard to have said, "That's for kissing my Ai-chan again!" alluding that the start of the assault had been triggered by Michishige planting an innocent kiss on Takahashi Ai's, current Morning Musume leader, cheek.
Witnesses say that kissing on stage is not anything new for the close knit group and never has it caused such a storm of drama in public. Though rumors have recently spread that the long time friends and coworkers, Niigaki and Takahashi had finally started a more than friends relationship.
Perhaps this incident confirms the rumors, perhaps Niigaki has simply cracked under the pressure of being in the public eye for too long. The young woman in question could not be reached for comment.
Michishige is reported to be in good condition after the beating and should be back to work in a couple of weeks. Now back to you.
Hmm, it's been a while. Wish Mikan would get back on and see this!
