Title: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: tamatron on February 19, 2006, 05:29:52 PM
Attention, please.


This thread is for RUMOURS AND GOSSIPS. Not ALL, but only ones that are USEFUL, INTERESTING and WORTH A DISCUSSION.

Do NOT post your own stupid home-made rumours or "Fool ya, sucka!" pranks or get around to talk about random off-topic things. I and the mods don't wanna see endless arguments, chit-chats or postwhoring here, either. Or else you'll be experiencing some good trouting.

That's the rule. If you post in this thread, it means you already agreed to it.
And a rumour is a rumour. Don't get too serious about it.


Thank you.

It's a tabloid though, grains of salt are to be taken.

The above is all that site reports. We'll have to wait until that issue hits to streets to know what else they're writing.

Hawaii?? I hope her english has improved if thats true. It WOULD be a way to get out of the public eye I suppose, but whether thats a good idea or not... who knows. Hawaii may have lots of places where Japanese is ok, but I think eventually english would be necessary.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Saburo on August 07, 2007, 10:50:00 PM
This is somewhat plausible.  Aibon DOES have a relative on Oahu (an aunt).

Aibon is looney tunes if she thinks moving to Hawaii will rid her of the paparazzi and curiosity seekers.  Unless she moves to Niihau or something.

Locals: I'll bet y'all could find out within days where they hang out on a regular basis.  If this guy opens an izakaya, they'll be more tourists from Japan flocking to the place than even Fukuda Asuka's bar. 

That said, if I ever come across Aibon at GS I'd most certainly buy her a drink.

Aibon signed something for her aunt who worked at KZOO radio.  I saw the signed card there a few years back when I used to hang out at the station. 

An old online comrade said I should have just stolen it and, in retrospect, she was right.  I shoulda taken it.

In any case, stuff like this doesn't REALLY mean that it's likely she'll be relocating here with her Shoko Asahara manfriend.  Just makes it seem more meaningful.

I'm kinda begin to worry about GAM's status ... because the H!P Official Site didn't list GAM in the Wonderful Hearts or the Elder Club

they listed GAM, MM tenjo junen kinentai, and Ongaku Gatas in the orange category .......... and all groups in that catergory are temporary groups ............. so GAM is becoming a temporary group >_<"" ??  .............. 

did Miki screw everything up ??

I need GAM >_<"" *crying*

I'm not even sure this belongs in gossip...

Anyway, I'm not saying you're wrong but I really think that the reason GAM isin't under "Elder Club" is because both Aya and Miki as solos are in EC already! They don't put in the same artist twice under one category.
I'm guessing that's why Kusumi isin't under Wonderful hearts either.

also Koha is not under Wonderful hearts is because she's under Kirarin Revolution with KiraPika ..................

Post by: JFC on August 17, 2007, 12:35:30 AM

Indeed. The reason why GAM was not categorized as being either WH or EC was because at the time, they had one member in each (Miki was in WC as part of MM and Aya was in EC). They were only GAM when the two groups came together for the "Shuuketsu" concerts.

As for why they still aren't listed as being one or the other, well, it's not like they HAVE to be right now. The next WH and EC tours won't be happening (if they happen) until early next year. They probably just haven't gotten around to yet (though my guess and personal hopes is that they'll stay in EC).

Not home right now, and I don't have all my dictionaries with me, but just looking at the article it seems it says something about Yossi talking on a TV show about how she used to scold MM members when she was leader. Not sure about it.

They haven't included any important details, probably because they don't possess any. It's pretty weak even for a rumor.

Their 'trump card' in the article is the part about them working together in Haromoni@, apparently he even got her cell phone address.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!

Aka-chin: "Hey Ai-chan, lets discuss gags that we can use on future episodes of haromoni@~! Mind if I have your number?"

Ai-chan: "Sure, why not?"

Easy as that.  Assertive...

Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Ayabie on August 31, 2007, 09:32:54 AM
Not really what I was going at. :P

The fact that Takahashi is a member of Morning Musume is what makes it suspicious. Giving out your number to a popular comedian isn't an everyday thing for the girls as they're not allowed to have boyfriends.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: RionZ on September 01, 2007, 02:39:06 AM
He happens to be a co-worker, so if she wanted to, there's her excuse.

Following Miki, I guess its safe to say that some of these girls like funny guys...
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!

hopefully it's just a rumor or else Aichan will be graduating next year ......
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: lil_hamz on September 01, 2007, 10:04:27 AM
Well, he is her co-worker, so I don't see a problem with exchanging phone numbers. Of course with this being H!P and MM, the normal rules don't apply.

It was pretty obvious since the beginning Aka-chin liked Ai-chan. He always let her win and talked to her the most. I can't believe management didn't stop the romance before it got out of hand (read: splashed in tabloids). I just hope she doesn't have to graduate so soon.

If the graduation happens next year it won't be a surprise since most years have at least one graduation. But if it's this year, there's a high chance the rumor is true *sigh*

I really doubt it's a romance because the paper has zero evidence.  Having the phone number of a co-worker is not dating.
UFA/H!P know they need Ai-chan in MM right now...the current line-up needs a decent amount of settling time.

Dear god, I'm not the biggest Takahashi fan, but if she is dating and she gets chucked out, Momusu is in trouble. I get frusterated that she gets so many lines but I think we all know she is one of the best vocalists in the group currently and her suddenly disappearing will really change the singing quality of the group. ._. Hopefully this is a rumour.

Well, I remember Sanma on Young Town Doyoubi before Miki 's resignation, she was talking about shopping and saving the little money she had, and Sanma said he had documents and proof that MM was among the best paid acts in Japanese entertainment, so he scolded Miki for lying about making little money.

Yes, he said they are the ones that make more money among idol groups, and also that they were among the best paid acts in general. Of course, Miki denied it saying MM members don't make as much as people think.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: JFC on September 09, 2007, 11:30:05 PM
My guess is that they make a lot, but probably a lot of it goes towards paying off things like rent (which is supposedly hella expensive in Tokyo), assistants and other staff, transportation, not to mention the monster taxes that they have to pay. It's probably a case of Gross earnings being a lot, but the Net earnings (i.e. what the girls actually pocket themselves) being less than what people would think.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: RionZ on September 09, 2007, 11:53:52 PM
^Actually, if you take a good look at the clothing they wear...its plain to see that they get paid a good amount of cash.  The salary list just adds to the fact.

But yeah, I bet they do get billed for company support like management and transportation.

I'm going to put this here, since there is still no "official" word on either CBC radio site or DokiMiki page, but... seems like next show, September 24th, could be the last. According to this radio announcement http://sharebee.com/ca5d22fe starting October 1st, the Miki show will be replaced by a Ongaku Gatas show: "Soreike! Ongaku Gatas". Even the Japanese Wikipedia says that DokiMiki night ends Sept. 24th http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E8%97%A4%E6%9C%AC%E7%BE%8E%E8%B2%B4%E3%81%AE%E3%83%89%E3%82%AD%E3%81%BF%E3%81%8DNight

And so the penalty for her incident starts.

Look for her to do damn near nothing once gam is over.

They won't take kindly to what she did, and all the money it took to
reshoot photos, videos, and music.

Sadly, I knew this was coming, and the usual one year ban / ignore
seems in effect.

OK a friend of mine is getting seriously paranoid that Koharu is in or going to be in deep doo-doo and that this might prompt her to leave Musume and Company.

I haven't heard of such a thing and assume that any dirt would be discussed in this thread.  But there's NOTHING that has surfaced about Koharu, right?  Am I missing something here?  Did I miss my issue of "Secret H!P Scandal Weekly" magazine?

I dunno, he's pretty serious but there are rumors swirling about H!P ALL THE TIME, unsubstantiated or otherwise.  I'm sure this one involving Koharu would have settled around here.

I was just curious to see if anyone smelled something foul downwind.

I know there's rumors that include H!P but was there was one specifically about Kusumi? or does your friend just have that gut feeling? and that picture above, I remember that footage, that guy was just like..was it bodyguard? definitely not b/f.

Something about Koharu and a hidden camera.  He wouldn't go into specifics so I can't/won't get bogged down unless I get references.

If I remember correctly, the footage those are from some handshake event that happened like, a year ago at least.

The guy is probably just a bodyguard or manager-type staff guy.

Anyway, there's nothing on 2ch about a possible Koha scandal, so I don't know where Saburo's friend gets his/her info. Will keep watching.

Sorry my friend is being deliberately vague, fearing reprisals from the Moral H!P Majority or not wanting to fan the flames of panic.  It involves another secret video, various minors (including, apparently, Koharu) and a mass conspiracy that purports to rival Pottygate on the Sick Puppy Meter.

Alarm bells went off when I read this. Please not now, not when she's rising fast up my faves list and when I've started collecting her stuff  :P

I'm inclined to think H!P will try salvaging the situation and only sack her if things get too blown out of proportion. She is their biggest $ generator among the younger set *Yes, I'm in denial mode* :roll:

Having a secret vid is a first, usually it's pics or recordings. I wonder if any of the C-ute or Berryz are involved too  :-X

Gossip: Fujimoto Miki

藤本美貴が廃業状態!庄司とは堂々と交際続行中
http://entameblog.seesaa.net/article/56429892.html

- Fujimoto quits showbiz over her boyfriend
- Next weeks Dokimiki night is the last one
- GAM is now history
- Fujimoto and the BF went to Bic Camera in Shibuya to get a computer (I knew shopping at Yodabashi Camera, Shinjuku was a bad idea)
- From now on Fujimoto seems to have fun and no worries

But it would break my heart a little if this is really true, honestly.

Basically, career over.

Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Pinkosa on September 23, 2007, 04:54:06 AM
at least GAM released and album and held a concert~

I support Miki-sama no matter what! Even if she preffers her boyfriend over the showbiz~  :heart:
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: JFC on September 23, 2007, 05:34:04 AM
Yeah...right.
- Fujimoto quits showbiz over her boyfriend
Miki's always said that being a singer has been her dream. I just can't find myself believing that she'd change her mind now about it. Just because she's dating doesn't mean she would feel that she has to stop working herself. If anything she seems to be the type of person that would deliberately continue working so that she wouldn't be dependant on anyone.


- Next weeks Dokimiki night is the last one
This, unfortunately, has been verified. :(


- GAM is now history
Just because Aya's currently promoting her new single and new album doesn't mean that GAM is done.


- Fujimoto and the BF went to Bic Camera in Shibuya to get a computer (I knew shopping at Yodabashi Camera, Shinjuku was a bad idea)
If this is true, so what? So she went to buy a computer, big deal.

I don't really think he's two faced in any particular way but I do remember watching him hit on female celebrities/idols on many variety shows. I think it was part of his comedian persona; he's supposed to be the dumb muscular guy that can't get any chicks. I don't know if he does that anymore though. He's probably left with dancing in thongs and letting dogs lick butter off of him.  :bleed eyes:

Geez, you'd think they'd at least use a current picture of her.

Do they specify on what show and when she was supposedly asked this?  If they don't then it could be from anytime during her career.



she said she does not like "two-faced guys" which they believe was intentionally said for Miki's BF. Also saying that Miki's BF caused them (Aya/Miki friendship) some angers...  :cry:
This is all just speculation on their part; doesn't look like they have anything that can back up their claim to make it sound credible.

It seems it was on Weekly Playboy, always according to Naispo. But you know Naispo... who knows.
It came out right after the other rumor on the other gossip page. Again, this is gossip thread.

Let me be suspicious that GAM hasn't released anything else despite their singles and album success over any other group and act expect of MM.

All I see is an article talking about Ishikawa Ryo, who is 16, winning a tournament, and one of the other participants was Airi's father Suzuki Tooru. They mention Tooru is Airi's father, and that he says that Ryo being only 3 years older than his daughter he didn't expected him to be so aggressive, and that he said smiling (which can mean he was joking) that maybe Ryo should be dating Airi.

I'll be glad if MoMusu goes to the Kouhaku this year, though I don't know about C-ute's chances of going. C-ute is performing at the Best Hit Kayousai though.

I've actually heard some gossip that MoMusu won't go to the Kouhaku this year because of the various scandals, but that was only mentioned by one person on this forum and I haven't heard that anywhere else. So, I'm going to assume that probably MoMusu will be able to go to the Kouhaku. I can't wait until NHK officially announces the singers.

Latest rumor around is that MM has been invited for the 10th time to the Kouhaku Uta Gassen, and C-ute is invited for the first time.

I've heard the opposite.

Care to post the sources?

Never mind, they took the lists down anyway, only people that seem "confirmed" are SMAP (and some say GACKT). Have to wait for the official NHK announcement  :(

EDIT: this year both team chairpeople are male: Red team will be Nakai Masahiro from SMAP, and White team will be Shofukutei Tsurube http://dailynews.yahoo.co.jp/fc/entertainment/kohaku/?1194851745

I don't think Berryz would sit this one out if C-ute doesn't, it would be too harsh on them to get beaten that badly by C-ute.  They'll probably be back dancer at least and I don't think C-ute would get a step forward either.  Wondering what'll this year's theme and the song the songs they gonna sing, Mikan? Onna ni Sachi Are?

I really want to see C-ute's JUMP! in Kouhaku :)

Even though they haven't announce it yet.  i really think that MoMusu is gonna be in this year's kouhaku as well.  I mean this year they broke a few Oricon records and just starting to expand into Asia.  although i don't wanna jinx it...
 i really think/ or at least hope that they'll be in it too despite the scandals and bad press.  they been in it since 2000 rite?

No, the only year they were absent from Kouhaku was their first year, 1997. They have been in every Kouhaku since 1998, that is 9 appearances so far. It would be nice if they can have their 10th appearance on their 10th anniversary year.

Post by: tiny on November 14, 2007, 10:24:18 PM
Morning Musume hadn't debuted officially in 1997. Their first major single is from January 1998.

The question for me is, will Ayaya be there? With Mikity out of the picture nowadays, it looks like a no go for her. So no GAM, but what will Ayaya perform if she's there? Egao doesn't feel like a Kouhaku song to me.

Berryz and C-ute fans will have to contend with a back dancer role for their favorites I'm afraid. It is because Momusu is above Berryz and C-ute in the H!P hierarchy, especially with something as traditional as the Kouhaku Utagassen.

Happy to go? Although a hit song medley sounds more likely.

Btw, is there a date for when exactly will they announce Kouhaku's artist list?

Post by: reyfer on November 15, 2007, 03:08:12 PM
It seems few people understand how the Kouhaku works. NHK sends teams of pollsters around the country from March until September. They ask people about artists, research what songs are requested at radio stations, look through Oricon's rankings, and then a committee selects a list to send invites to. some may accept, some may decline (in practice, only few decline), but it is NHK who decides who to invite, not the record companies or talent agencies. Can they try to muscle a bit? of course, but it all comes down to NHK sending the invites. They have been doing it for 57 years. And it has worked, in spite of recent audience drops, Kouhaku is still the most viewed music TV special on japanese TV year after year. What companies can do, as UFA has done before, is to put some other acts as back dancers for the act that was invited (they did that with MM, the kids were always there as back dancers)

EDIT: it also depends on the "theme" the Kouhaku will have that year, they ask "will this or that reflect the theme?". This year is 歌の力、歌の絆 Power of song, bond (or maybe feeling?) of song.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: chokkan 2 on November 15, 2007, 07:48:08 PM
yep, so there is a possibility that they'll "invite" C-ute since all their 3 major single debut at 3rd @ Oricon

and UFA have nothing to do with it

Nothing spectacular, she was spotted buying some games for the Wii, putting it simply; that's about it.

EDIT: As for the announcement...well I'm hoping it's concerning the next gen or something of the sort but I'm certainly not expecting it to be that. I'm thinking it'll be more along the lines of concerts as mentioned or something that is pretty unexciting considering the possibilities some have come up with.

why is Friday mag still bothering mikitty? it's nothing new, so she still with the guy.  nothing exciting about that.  it's bothersome and uninteresting since her scandal been out for months now.  this is no new story, it's like "This just in, Mikitty still dating Shouji and not working. Just like yesterday, just like the day before, Just like for many months now."  it's old news, friday, unless something like they broke up or she's returning to work or have a new boyfriend, then i'm probably interested.  things like going out together and being spotted when everyone already knows ur dating isn't exactly interesting... unless it's something like making out in public then i'm probably want to see a picture or two (wonder how mikitty kisses).

I think Tsunku might using °C-ute and Buono's popularity to gain more sales for Berryz and Momusu by releasing this close. I mean, last time °C-ute's single sold extremely well and I think that's part of the reason Berryz' single sold so well, it made the Berriwota competitive and they bought the single.
which is very shortsighted and a quickfix method .. even to the untrain eye ..

Someone among the H!P Eggs will be the "successor" to Ayaya. That is, someone will make a solo debut. Let's speculate.

"Congratulations! You won best new artist. For next year, one of you will go solo so we will have the chance to win it again." :grin:

Maimi has a collab with Nacchi
Airi is in Buono!
Mai has a collab with Koharu
Saki and Chisato are in the Athena unit
Erika and Kanna = Tsuugaku vector girls

Maimi and Airi are the top 2 prospects to go solo, but if I were to choose, I'd say Chisato.  :grin:

Alright, a baseless rumor for you kids.

Someone among the H!P Eggs will be the "successor" to Ayaya. That is, someone will make a solo debut. Let's speculate.

Well, some names I could throw in there:
Kanon Fukuda - very young but has the whole package, and one of the Eggs with the most experience
Sayaka Kitahara - cute, seems to have a good personality, decent voice, but hasn't been especially pushed
Saki Ogawa - very young but has the whole package, has got a push
Yuuka Maeda - cute voice and looks, has got some push; however, no strong personality so far
Erina Mano - very cute, seems to easily brainwash new fans, however, she's already in Ongaku Gatas, not a strong singer
Saki Mori - a stand-out personality, a weirdo, decent voice, tries hard to be a good idol; hasn't been especially pushed

Being pushed could be a bad or good thing; when Ayaya debuted, didn't she come a bit out of nowhere? She wasn't a backdancer to anyone or the like, right? I don't actually have any idea cuz I wasn't around then. But if they want this possible successor to be a surprise, then I'd think it's not Kanon Fukuda, Saki Ogawa or anyone in Ongaku Gatas. Instead someone who has been sort of trained in silence and has only done some "obligatory" appearances, like H!P concert backdancing and the Egg concerts. But if they've wanted to advertise this successor beforehand, it's the absolute opposite situation, and someone like Kanon, Nocchi, Saki is likely.

Weird how it's easy to name some of the youngest eggs for this. Ayaya was already a young lady (in looks) when she debuted, so I dunno.

Anyway it's just a rumour, but I love to speculate! :D
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Princess Pudding on January 02, 2008, 02:30:00 PM
I can't really see any of the younger ones to go... I CAN see Kikkawa for some reason? She always seemed a little out of place with the eggs in stuff to me, and Kanon is a good choice too. I think Konatsu would do an awesome job as a soloist! So, I'm hoping for her :lol:
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Risastar on January 03, 2008, 05:15:24 PM
I agree with you! Kikka does look a little out of place with the eggs. She has an alright voice but I think with training she could be good. She also has a like able factor although she seems quite. As for the soloist in C-ute I think its going to be Maimi. The reason I say her is because she is doing a duet with Nacchi. She isn't in some like random kid group she doing a duet with Nacchi!! I think Tsunku is trying to get Maimi more popularity so that he can debut her as a soloist. Maimi has a strong voice but I think she needs more training if she is to become a soloist.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Princess Pudding on January 03, 2008, 05:26:06 PM
^But Nacchi isn't that popular anymore. If I wanted to get Maimi more known before a debut, I would put her instead in a duet with Ayaya, or even someone like Yaguchi or Ishikawa. I don't think Nacchi is popular enough anymore to make Maimi known among non-H!P fans.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Risastar on January 03, 2008, 05:33:32 PM
Thats very true! Then I wonder who its going to be then...I can't think of anyone else really besides Airi but I don't think Tsunku would do that since she already lead in C-ute. Maybe it really is Chisato! That would be a dream come true I have been wanting a Chisato solo ever since I heard her and Maimai's verison of Aenai Nagai Nichiyoubi. Speaking of Maimai it could also be her since she did have a unit with Koharu and it was pretty successful.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: BigDnm01 on January 03, 2008, 07:53:37 PM
Having a C-ute member becoming a soloist is kool, but i hope they won't "graduate" her from the group just yet, not until her solo career took off.  maybe in a couple of years,

now would be just too soon, don't cha think?  i wouldn't make any sense...
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: shirenuファクトリー on January 03, 2008, 07:59:53 PM
What, Yaguchi and Ishikawa are somehow significantly more popular than Nacchi? Bitch, please.. Nacchi's singles may not be selling but Yaguchi's not even releasing shit... And it's not like Ayaya hasn't fallen a lot in popularity, too... If anything, pairing Maimi with Nacchi is clumsy because Nacchi fans are used to Nacchi solo stuff and aren't necessarily interested in duet releases... Much like Masa hasn't checked out Ongaku Gatas because it has too many members he doesn't care about (even if it has Rika)...

I was going more for non-H!P fans. Yaguchi isn't associated much with H!P anymore besides concert MC/random concert appearances/Uta-doki. Ishikawa seems to be more popular outside of H!P than Nacchi for whatever reason. Ayaya has fallen a lot in popularity as has everyone else in H!P, but Nacchi, to me, seems to have fallen the most of all the featured soloists. Ayaya has always had more outside fans. They both are getting fewer TV appearances, but I hardly ever see Nacchi in anything that's not entirely H!P related. The ones who seem to be getting the most TV appearances not as a group are (kinda sorta)Okada and Ongaku Gatas non-egg girls (minus Korenaga). And Yaguchi's not releasing anything, which could make it sell more, just for the fact that she hasn't released anything, which is why I mentioned her.

And shirenu, I know you're a Nacchi fangirl, but seriously, I hardly ever see anything Nacchi related anymore. She used to randomly appear on shows much like Satoda (even Okada to a point) are doing now, but lately, I don't know when I last saw her doing anything. Yaguchi and Ayaya are slowing hitting that road, but Nacchi seems to have just dropped off, to me. I see more MKB stuff on trackers weekly than I do with Nacchi monthly. Not saying she's less popular than them, but she had her spotlight time, and it's definitely not around anymore, whether it's her scandals or her age, or what... I don't know.

What Okada & Satoda are doing is just a job of a tv personality. Same goes with Ayaya, she only hosts a tv show for housewives and does pad commercials. If that's called popularity, sure, Nacchi isn't popular enough >.>

And Yaguchi's not releasing anything, which could make it sell more, just for the fact that she hasn't released anything, which is why I mentioned her.

That's true, but I was just trying to make the point that it's outside of H!P things, so they might get noticed more. There has to be a reason why a lot of shows have been inviting Satoda and such on their shows, right?
And Yaguchi's not releasing anything, which could make it sell more, just for the fact that she hasn't released anything, which is why I mentioned her.

An anonymous poster on 2ch says that there will be an important announcement regarding personnel at the Yokohama Arena concert this weekend. He says the leak is from a friend at UFG.

He goes on to detail three points:
1, a Morning Musume graduation in May
2, one of the Eggs will become a new member of Morning Musume
3, a new unit of Eggs will be formed

Then he says the graduating member will be one person from the 5th or 6th generation. The Egg that will become the new member is a 3rd year middle school student who will graduate middle school in the spring. And the new unit will consist of four people not exceeding 2nd year middle school age.

The poster concludes his post mentioning that there also will be happy surprise.

This is of course still very much unconfirmed...

i still think it's too soon for a graduation, but guess they gotta keep up with the MoMusu tradition...  i hope at least they'll stay in H!P and actually be active so we can see more of them. even if they'll probably won't get a lot of spotlight, like many ex-musume members, i would still like to see them as much as i can. 
(really hoping a certain member won't graduate too soon)

Then he says the graduating member will be one person from the 5th or 6th generation. The Egg that will become the new member is a 3rd year middle school student who will graduate middle school in the spring. And the new unit will consist of four people not exceeding 2nd year middle school age.


I'm adding speculation to this, but I've just read someone synopsis on GakiKame's radio show....
Quote
this weeks episode had a lot of talk about Kamei's younger sister! Apparently she's currently in her last year of middle school and studying for exams. And of course, according to Risa she's a lot more behaved than her older sister that we're all familiar with.


...would they?

FINE TAKE THEM ALL AWAY UFA!  :cry:
I really, really hope this is just a rumor.... but also, I knew we would face another graduation at some point. Such is the history of Morning Musume.

About the egg thing though. Anything that gets them more publicity is okay with me! Too bad Kikka's a little older. I REALLY want to see her doing stuff because she is so effing awesome and talented.  :inlove: But there's also so many other eggs that are so good... It will be interesting to see what unfolds (if anything at all).

I wonder how all these rumors start. Each of them seem a little far-fetched except for the 5-6th gen grad idea. Personally, I think it's too soon. It's barely been a year with the new line up of girls. Ai has been promoting that "new morning musume" idea so hard, I just don't think any of them will be leaving any time soon. Maybe around the end of this year I could see someone graduating, but just not right now.

It would be better if they announced another audition and added like, 5 more girls to the group. xD
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: BigDnm01 on January 21, 2008, 03:33:10 PM
couldn't they just pushed back the Graduation till later or something?  
i know it's inevitable but still too soon.  add another member if they want, but please.... don't take the girls away yet. i'll miss them waayyy tooo much... :cry:

then again these are just rumors, no confirmation yet.... *wipe tears* (gotta be prepared for the worst case scenario though...)

@kyats:
all rumors have some basis, but the basis are usually very very small things that get blown out of porportion by the forums and stuff
like most of the -H!P girl- is dating -so and so- rumors come from the 2 looking at eachother during some show they are one and usually don't amount to more then that
the grad rumors are a yearly thing as with the grads themselves
-the post said there will be a grad this year in may, ok yeah, theres always a grad around the summer time
-the post said it'll be a 5th or 6th gen member, ok yeah, those are the only 2 gens thats been around long enough for a grad
-the post said an egg will be added to MM, not that far fetched since Linlin was an egg, and the eggs are getting pushed alot recently
-the surprise tidbit at the end, oh could it be an audition announcement? or possibly Mako return?
I'm surprised they didn't go "oh, and tsunku wants to hold the 9th gen auditions sometime this year, which will be broadcasted on the berryz/c-ute new program, and have the graduated girl form a new unit within H!P"

as for the rumors themselves
-New H!P Program
A berryz/c-ute program isn't that farfetchd since they've been getting pushes lately, and HM@ isn't doing as good as H!M was
-May Grad
Everyone knows there'll be a grad, and it's obviously from 5th or 6th, so yeah, theres nothing more to say, I don't think it should be may, i assumed the grads usually took place around the later summer, but i gues it depends on when their concert is, I hope that whoever grads isn't graduating H!P but ust MM and will do something while in H!P, i wouldn't want Mame to graduate and then never see her ever again even if she's still in H!P, just she's not doing anything and then have a rumor a year or so later about her being preggy, that would suck

It's happened before. Konno was supposed to be in Ribon no Kishi, but graduated anyway. And having a graduation in May is more convenient. A summer grad interferes with rehearsals for the musical and some of the girls might risk straining their voices from all the crying. Ai, for example, lost her voice after Kei's grad.

Thats very true. Still I don't think there will be a graduation in May because if you look at Morning Musume's spring tour http://wiki.theppn.org/Morning_Musume_Concert_Tour_2008_Haru_%7ESingle_Daizenshuu%7E the last date of the concert is at Tokyo Welfare Meeting Hall which isn't big enough to hold a graduation concert and is in May so there can't be a grad in May.

Its going to be a major disappointment when they leave :[ of course they are only exchange students, but its interesting to see them grow in a completely different country, learn the customs, the language, etc.  It just adds and extra interesting factor to a new gen member. When Aika rolled around I honestly could care less how she did, it was sort of like "oh another new member great." but when LL and JJ came around it was like "oh wow they've learned the language well and have so many interesting things and anecdotes about china" and whatnot.

7th and 8th gen all had good finalists,
they reject all 7th and get Aika from 8th. Fail.

Ayaya was the only stable solo in the idol pop business,
they let her go cheap. Fail.

Maki was raising sales in R&B,
they made here release Secret. Fail.

GAM was the only group keeping up the single sales with the album sales,
they punish Miki for having a boyfriend. Fail.

Hello!Morning sucked but had 3% at least,
they make an even worse show under 1%. Fail.

Biyuden has kept loyal sales,
they get disbanded. Fail.

ºC-ute wins everything thanks to Tokkaikko Junjou,
they schedule the corny LALALA song. Fail.

It is my conviction that H!P has a mole. This is not normal. Someone is giving bad advise to Tsunku and UFA; they can't be that much idiots by themselves; no one boycotts his own business this much. Since each artist has a lot of managers, I think some of them are payed by the rival labels or something like that. Really, you can't screw up this much, one after another, you can't. They must be the laughingstock of the business partners and the focus of all jokes. Seriously, either the company is run by a bunch of incompetence people -doubtfully, as they had better years- or they have someone trying to kill it inside their own people -most likely-.

Scary to think someone is out to get H!P as a whole.  whether how big or small their rivals are, someone is out to ruin them.  and that's is something i can't stand for.  although there's no proof and all is just speculations...  but people all mention how fierce the competition is during releases, perhaps there is some truth to the matter. 
UFA are idiots as well, why can't they see what's happening and when they try to make things better, it went for the worse.  usually they do a "HIT or MISS" strategy, they need competent people to manage them.  And Tsunku, too. I have a lot of respect for the man, being H!P main producer and all, but sometimes it's seems that he just do nothing and go along with it.... or maybe he can't since he don't have the authority... 
seeing my beloved Hello! Project in this situation, at this rate, i'm afraid of what might happen next.  They seem so fragile now....  i'm having nightmares just thinking of the worst case scenario.  it saddens me so, i just hope it won't happen and H!P will get better and better in the near future and stays that way.

Post by: Slack on January 26, 2008, 10:09:08 PM
Yeah, I haven't been feeling the "batshit insane" vibes from Tsunku recently.  Definitely a bad sign.  When I realized that he's not writing anything for H!P outside of Momusu, Berryz, C-ute, V-u-den, and GAM, the end of H!P scare stories seemed just a little more credible to me.

10 Years of Momusu, V-u-den and GAM are out of the picture, and who knows if he'll be interested in the former H!P Kids once their average ages go over 16?

Meanwhile, outside of UFA's power, he has TNX.  I'm not keeping up on that, but it seems to me to fill a niche that's already a bit crowded with AKB48.  Plus, there isn't the history of success that H!P has, so how successful will it be?

Is Tsunku spawning new groups to make quick money so he can retire with his ex-model wife?  Or is it because he's developed the middle-age equivalent of ADHD and is forgetting what he has been doing?  WHAT'S THE DEAL, MITSU-KUN??

Post by: JFC on January 26, 2008, 10:29:26 PM
Okay, firstly, WTF NO MORE RIKA/ERIKA/YUI gyrations?!?!? :OMG:


Secondly, remember folks that the stuff that's been going on in H!P isn't all Tsunku's doing. He just writes and produces the songs. In all likelihood, all of the "bigger" decisions are being made by that Yamazaki guy, who's apparently the head of UFG/UFA. No one ever really knew of him before, but lately he's been turning up in the credits of recent H!P DVDs, replacing Tsunku as "Executive Producer".

examples:

I'd heard a few things about this guy (or was it the Ogata guy?), like that he was the one responsible for Miki going into Momusu.  Also some other stuff that seemed like he was the real man behind the curtain, while Tsunku's just the guy who does the music.  I don't think we'll ever really know the true balance of power behind H!P, but I definitely think that Tsunku gets significantly more than his fair share of blame for bad decisions.  In any case, it seems more like the suits are in charge.

TNX = proof that Tsunku's getting tired of UFA's management?  He sure as hell isn't tired of girl groups, but maybe a little tired of H!P girl groups/UFA style?

Edit:
Quick google search says Yamazaki's (http://jinryuichi-hnph.blogspot.com/2007/04/so-whos-boss-yamazaki-naoki-or-tsunku.html) the one I'm thinking of.

That is to get into the music industry, go to japan, befriend Tsunku, become assistant producer of Hello! Project. Gradually take control of H!P and out of UFA's idiotic hands.

I will support you BigDnm01! Befriending Tsunku is the first step, I can't blame him for things that much because he does more of the music side with some costume picking and choreography here and there. He always keeps in contact with the girls if they ask him for advice.  The hard step will be to sweep out those higher ups. A staff member for GoRokkies couldn't understand why the show got the axe when viewership was rising. Why do you get rid of something that's working?  And I'm still bitter at one of the managers for being an ass. :angry:
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: BigDnm01 on January 27, 2008, 05:56:15 AM
of course this is just wishful thinking, hell, i know there isn't a chance for me in the world. but if someone is able to do it, go for it!   someone have the skills and opportunity and the love for H!P and determine to make them successful and happy, that's someone i will support.  and of course to listen to us fans, people on this forums and other forums give out good ideas and have great discussions.  the target audience isn't just the wotas, we need to satisfy normal "casual" fans as well as bring in new ones.  listen to the fans and take note.  but that's not the only thing.  to help support the girls and help them improve. to create great, wonderful music is some of the things.

the objective is really to get H!P away from UFA since they dunno how to manage properly.  if they can do a better job like how other companies is doing... 

and i think that tsunku is a great producer, i didn't mean to use him when i say "befriend" him. i think he really means well and wish the best for his girls, just UFA won't really let him interfere with marketing and promotions, just music.  that's why the assistant producer will probably take on the role of "marketing" producer than the music itself.  Tsunku just needs a good partner in the business.

Wed, January 30, 2008 (3:53pm EST)

The current issue of Josei Seven is reporting that Mari Yaguchi may be in a relationship with actor Takuji Kawakubo, who is best known for starring in "Ultraman Nexus" a few years ago.

According to the magazine, Kawakubo was seen this month leaving from Yaguchi's home early in the morning. The magazine also snapped pictures of the two together on a separate occasion. They reportedly met at a party last summer. However, both of their agencies have stated that the pair are just friends.

http://someboys.wordpress.com/2008/02/02/new-morning-musume-sub-unit-rumor/
http://someboys.wordpress.com/2008/02/03/sub-unit-question-resolved/

In case you don't feel like clicking on links, apparently for a one-day Osaka event, there will be a one-day only ( :cry:) unit made of Risa, Koharu, Junjun, Linlin, and Aika and apparently the fans get to chose the name of this one-day group.

I haven't seen this information elsewhere, but it seems like something that would be legit.

it'll be called Scandal Musume

Thanks, though that seems to be the same article about Miki supposedly marrying Shouji in April. I didn't know it said anything about her contract.

However, lovemusic posted an interesting survey on H!O which I assume comes from 2ch:

There might still be a grain of truth in the article, but as you can see from the survey, Shuukan Bunshun is considered a lot less reliable than, say, Friday.

Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: BigDnm01 on February 08, 2008, 11:52:08 PM
I'm not suprise if it did happen. 
hmm... contract ends in March, maybe marriage in April, how convenient.  if it's true that Shouji one lucky man, but i guess he's already getting lucky ain't he.  i dunno him much so i can't judge if he's bad or good.  But if he got Mikitty, that he sure have some skills (that or mikitty have a low standard of men).

Still it's sad to see her leave H!P.  won't see her much with the H!P girls anymore, not that i see her anymore anyway, except maybe Gatas.  doing things... having fun...  groping a**es....

if after her contract expires and she doesn't renew it with H!P/UFA then that's too bad, although i can kinda understand all the UFA bullshit.  i don't hate the H!P name in fact i love it, i just hate the UFA. Hello! Project is just an umbrella group that all these girls are a part of.  UFA is the one managing them. 

If Mikitty still wanna be a singer again, she should definitely look around.  i think other labels would want to sign her.  It's just won't be the same as H!P.

If it did happen I could also see her joining another label if she still wanted to sing after marrying Shouji, maybe join avex or something...though some artists on avex get really doinky promotion.

I guess we'll have to wait and see.

This really sucks. I can't pass comment on Miki's bf cause obviously, I don't know him, but I hope he treats Miki like a freaking goddess if she's to be his wife. There must be something about him if Miki wants to marry and put her showbiz career on hold, at least with H!P. So long as Miki's happy, I think that's what matters even though she could be out there in the wilderness and never see her......

From HK newspaper

Morning 娘 成 員 龜 井 繪 里 向 以 清 純 見 稱 , 可 是 昨 日 出 版 的 日 本 雜 誌 《 週 刊 現 代》 , 卻 刊 出 一 系 列 懷 疑 是 龜 井 跟 前 男 友 拍 下 的 床 上 慾 照 , 報 道 又 指 兩 人 在 求 學 時 已人 細 鬼 大 , 龜 井 每 星 期 會 到 對 方 家 密 會 一 至 兩 次 。
對 於 今 次 輪 到 有 「 疑 似 龜 井 」 的 相 片 廣 泛 流 傳 , 香 港 網 友 也 非 常 關 心 , 有 人 更 形 容 香 港 奇 拿 似 乎 已 殺 到 日 本 網 絡 。

For those who don't know Cantonese, apparently there is a rumor that a "kira" in Japan is leaking out a series of photo about someone that looks like Kame and her "ex-boyfriend" bed photos, something similar to the Edison Chen's case.
An article was written by Shūkan Gendai (週刊現代) about it.

Anyone knows anything about this news?

Update - Found the page on 2ch where people posted the article (sorry, don't know if I can hyperlink to show you guys/gals).
The photos of "Kame on bed" is all face-censored... don't know whether it was done by the tabloid or the 2ch people. So I highly doubt it is true.

Either way, it looks like she's no longer dating the guy, which means that this probably will blow over pretty quickly (it's not like what happened with Mari or Miki). The article, IMO makes him a bit of a sleazebag for selling her out like this. He knew when they were going out (if it really was Eri, that is) that she's an idol, and that even without that, it's not right to go blabbing around and selling what should be private photos the way that he did.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!

Supposedly he got 230,000 yen for the photos.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: doinkies on February 19, 2008, 08:07:59 PM
Here's a post from Lantis @ H!O.

Quote
That article full of lies and inaccuracies. For example, Eri quit high school in first grade (she switched to correspondence education) and her first concert was around 2003, not 2005 (when the guy says he met her).
Also the purikura is "faked", apparently it's one Eri took with Sayu, also compare her haircut (she cut her hair and dyed it at that time)
(http://img262.imageshack.us/img262/7745/viploader2d320536pj7.th.jpg) (http://img262.imageshack.us/my.php?image=viploader2d320536pj7.jpg)

Next time they should research a bit about Momusu before making up rumors, that way it'll be a little more believable.

So yeah, it's just some stupid fake story. Even if it was true, it's an ex-BF, I doubt Eri will get in trouble for it. This guy's just some doink.

but also the fact that she is the tom-boy of the group and since all the girls are supposedly can't have boy-love, she's the closest thing they could have, which raise her sexy level towards the girls.

from what i can get, reina has been spotted out on possible a date at disneyland and in a car with a guy from w-inds. apparently matsuura aya played cupid.
sounds like a lot of speculation to me?

Kei's getting married,.... that's a good thing.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: JTRIX on March 05, 2008, 05:00:16 PM
It's a good thing to hear Kei getting marry if it is true, just like if we all hear Yuuko and Nacchi getting marry too!!!

But Reina? I don't mind if she is on a date but not anyone from "damn" w-inds or Johnnys!
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: BigDnm01 on March 05, 2008, 07:11:23 PM
i hope that Reina thing isn't true, could definitely ruin her career and make MoMusu very fragile rite now.

but on another note,  aren't the guys from w-inds, except for Aya's supposed bf, short, around Reina's height?  even though i dunno how they look, but i think it would be cute. 

If it wasn't for the whole "idol can't have bf/gf thing"  i wouldn't mind much that she dates, as long as she still have her career.  same goes for all the girls.

Kei getting married?  HOPE IT'S TRUE, she derserve someone at least, same can be said to all of the Elders Club members.  i still hope they stay in the idol/music/entertainment career one way or another.

Well, when her blog popped back up and she informed everyone she was in L.A. she said she was going to be away for just around a month, didn't she? If so, then according to that schedule it could have just been the time when she was schedule to return.

Yahoo Japan says Friday recently interviewed Yaguchi over her boyfriend but they seemed more interested in Kago and Goto to which she told them where to go. I'd provide sauce but I can't seem to find the article now; may not actually come to anything but I wouldn't be surprised to hear bollocks from Friday concerning any of them sometime soon.

from the story, they already broke up and everything.  Just pissed that the tabloid is still reporting on this even though everyone is past this already.  They just have to stir up some trouble for Kamei Eri, don't they?  just burns me up. 
WHY CAN'T THEY JUST LEAVE THEM ALONE?! LET THEM LIVE AND IDOL IN PEACE!

シンデレラ (cinderella) ・・・ 高橋愛

王様 (king) ・・・ 箙かおる
王子(prince) ・・・ 愛華みれ
使者 (emissary) ・・・ 光井愛佳

継母 (step mother) ・・・ 光あけみ
ジョイ (joy, 1/2 of evil step sister) ・・・ 田中れいな
ポーシャ (portia, the other 1/2) ・・・ 久住小春

ハツカネズミ (mice) ・・・ 道重さゆみ・ジュンジュン・リンリン

that made me laugh.

Well so far I guess it's accurate in the sense that there are only 4TK people in the play...but Gaki/Kamei lizards lol

I didn't even know that there were lizards in Cinderella...lin/jun I expected them getting small parts, but Sayu.. I don't know what an emissary is either. Some of those parts seem questionable but not, since Cinderella doesn't have many main characters. What's WHG and where'd you find the list?

No idea who or what WHG is  :lol: but this is the version they are doing as Reanimation said they are doing the Rodger & Hammerstein version    1. "Overture" (instrumental)
   2. "The Prince Is Giving A Ball" (Herald and Chorus)
   3. "In My Own Little Corner" (Cinderella)
   4. "Royal Dressing Room Scene" (King, Queen, Chef, Steward)
   5. "In My Own Little Corner" (Reprise) (Cinderella)
   6. "Impossible; It's Possible" (Cinderella and Fairy Godmother)
   7. "Gavotte" (instrumental)
   8. "Ten Minutes Ago" (Prince and Cinderella)
   9. "Stepsisters' Lament" (Stepsisters)
  10. "Waltz for a Ball" (instrumental and Chorus)
  11. "Do I Love You Because You're Beautiful?" (Prince and Cinderella)
  12. "When You're Driving Through Moonlight" (Cinderella, Stepmother, Stepsisters)
  13. "A Lovely Night" (Cinderella, Stepmother, Stepsisters)
  14. "The Search" (instrumental)
  15. "The Wedding" (instrumental)
  16. "Mother And Daughter March" (instrumental)
  17. "Never In a Thousand Years" (eventually omitted from the production)
  18. "There is Music in You" (Performed by Whitney Houston in 1997 version)

Morning Musume Korean members? Article here (http://www.asahi.com/showbiz/korea/TKY200806100194.html).

asahi.com claims in its article that "The popular Japanese idol group Morning Musume will select a South Korean member. Especially, it is assumed that the process of the member selection is scheduled to be broadcast through an Mnet cable channel reality program."

^ well since MM already has 2 Chinese members in it, and Tsunku wants to expand MM oversea, it's not surprise that he thinks of adding a Korean member into the group.

H!P had a Korean member before but she was just a H!P member not MM member. Perhaps this will make MM more excited to watch in the future if it is true.

Is this the same thing around the time of MM korea concert?  if that is so, they already denied or cancel it. 
And if it really is, then asahi.com sure is slow with it...

but if it's new, then it sure is some news...

I'm reading the Asahi article, and it is the exact same wording used when MM went for that concert in Seoul, when "someone from MNET" said there were plans for a kind of reality show to pick a Korean member.....exact same words....but I thought H!P denied it? Not sure what to think

im gonna agree with BigDnm01, Asahi is very slow. they just translated the same korean articles from 5.24.08 into japanese. (check WHG, saying the same thing). MNet already scrapped the idea.

Tokyo Sports' front page reports Maki Goto's imminent comeback and talks about an Avex's shareholders meeting soon-to-be where she'd be formally introduced.

Tokyo Sports also said Goto Maki and Kago Ai would form a unit under Avex. (Which was denied by Kago.) Suffices to say that Tokyo Sports is not very reliable as a source of news.

that i s the one i think will become a momusu member plus the one from the reality they are planning to have over there...

thats my personal theory for a long long time...
but this rumors just come to make a little more... real?

well.. any way if they are having member from all over asia is ok.. as long as upfront takes care of the language and communication of the members... it haves to be said that jun jun has been left aside to many things just because she is not fluent in japanese...

good news any way.

^ I don't think I believe the thing about Maki and Kago forming a unit (because I don't think the pairing would really be very good; they're too different), but I think Gocchin's coming back to her singing career soon. It's just a matter of when.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: strawb3rrykream on June 18, 2008, 02:34:51 AM
I don't really want them to form a unit. They both have different things going on and it suits them. Aibon seems like she's having a blast filming the movie. And when Gocchin was updating her blog, she seemed pretty happy with what she was doing too. So they should just stick with those.
But I want them both to come back with singing. Just not together in a unit. :P

But I bet if it happens, I'll probably be happy. As long as they're back.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: mini*wheat on June 18, 2008, 02:52:26 AM
Kago already said on her blog that the rumor of a unit with her and Maki was false, like Tiny stated... so it's not going to happen.

However, Kago did say she'd like to sing again someday, so having them both back in that area of show business is quite possible.

On the same topic, Maki Goto profile was removed from UFA website yesterday.

For those who didn't believe Tokyo Sports the second time, I can understand the reputation is against it, but there's a big difference from a small black and white piece of news reporting a rumor on the air that was L&L, and it was reported as a rumor, compared to giving Maki the cover, first page in full body and color to say she's gonna be back with Avex, this time not as a rumor, but as news quoting insiders. This is why I didn't even post/comment the L&L thing but the Avex cover a few days later.

I'm not gonna say "I told you all" but it could be easily guessed, seriously. UFA has no money to send her to LA, but the desire to make people think she's still with them (thus keeping up her profile). In her blog, UFA wasn't mentioned anymore, not even in the copyright. So many newspapers wouldn't be involving Maki with Avex company unless there is the minimum sign that it might happen, aka pictures or insiders. You can gossip about boyfriends, but not deals. Many newspapers have been saying the same: Maki goes to Avex, for so long. Avex could have soon ended this and cut their profit source, that is guessing about Maki's future on the nations most desired agency, at anytime. Instead, everyone kept shut up. After all this, Max Matsuura coming on the same plan as Maki was not enough to convince unbelievers? It was not a "by chance" happening. And now a 90% credibility newspaper mentions it. According to Tokyo Sports previous information, she'd be formally introduced on the 22nd. We'll see. That is guessing, but I doubt the media would be more than half year saying Maki will be/is in Avex unless it were true.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Pharadox on June 19, 2008, 08:58:48 PM
^ Oh, I'm sure that she will restart her singing career soon and definitely not with UFA. It was clear that she was finished with them. It's obvious that if she had wanted to blog just for the sake of keeping in touch with her fans, she would have done it the whole time. But I think the blog was a way of building up anticipation of her return. And she probably couldn't keep blogging beyond a certain point because her daily activities began to contain a lot of obvious give-aways about where her career is going next (or she was just way too busy with all of the preparations to keep up with it). I've never been one to fully believe something until I see it happen, though. We'll see. If the announcement does happen on the 22nd, I will be one very, very happy girl. :D I'm ready to see her reach heights she's never been to before.

Quote from: superstar
Goto Maki to perform with Hamasaki Ayumi

GoMaki is primed for a sensational comeback after an 8-month hiatus! Newly signed on to the Avex Trax label, GoMaki is set to return to the stage when Avex celebrates its 20th anniversary, alongside superstars like Ayumi Hamasaki.

The concert will feature Ayumi Hamasaki as the leader of the pack, alongside other stars such as Koda Kumi and GoMaki. Well at least things seem to be looking a little better for the Goto family.

Source: Superstar @ Star News (http://asianfanaticfans.blogspot.com/2008/06/goto-maki-to-perform-with-hamasaki.html) on June 16, 2008.

He/She doesn't site any of his/her sources though and I couldn't find anything else about it anywhere, so who knows. All I can find is something about a compilation CD and a series of drama shorts related to Avex's anniversary.

Also, at Gocchin.com here (http://www.gocchin.com/?p=1325#more-1325) Romi posted a translation of the supposed quote by Maki in Century Land: "“My meeting with AVEX, is going to provide a lot of new stimuli and I felt there’s going to be huge possibilities. I love singing even more than before, and more than anything else, I want to send the loved songs to everybody. ” Translations are good for people like me who can't read Japanese.  :D

So apparently the publisher Coremagazine has a thing against H!P. One of their magazines, BUBKA, has an article about Miyabi's pics that were discussed here some time ago, and another one of their tabloids, BREAK MAX, has for the August number a piece about Sayumi and an adult video in which an amazing look-alike appears prominently being groped and having sex at a massage parlor (pretending to be hidden camera stuff, and the BREAK MAX article forgets to tell on the title it is a look-alike, although they mention it on the article itself)

Same thing with the Kame case, they tried to re-create the spark, but nobody paid attention. 
I hope this case blows over real soon and nothing happens to the girls. 
I think Miyabi's safe, anywayz...
and what's idiot and loser would try to start a scandal with a LOOK-A-LIKE?!!!
This won't do anything, except the girls will have a big laugh over it.  Sorry for the fans that was brought into it, they've must've been pissed and glad at the same time, glad it wasn't really their idols, and pissed at the magazines for misleading them.

BUBKA and BREAK MAX have virtually no reliability, and there have been previous H!P scandals reported in BUBKA that didn't result in much of anything.

This is like the doinks who continued reporting about the Eri story when it was proven to be fake. Don't worry about it.

I love how they placed the Johnny's Jr scandal right under the ℃-ute one. :lol: Personally the only members that popped up in my head were Maimi and Airi, being the leader and "ace" respectively. Also, the headline only notes "a shocking first scandal" which doesn't necessarily mean any tongues are involved.

If the title said "Berryz Koubou: First Scandal!", then you would be correct, however, you seem to have gotten your groups mixed up. Chinami's in Berryz Koubou, not ºC-ute.

Amongst the ºC-ute members, it does resemble her most, though I'm somewhat iffy about it.

H!P/UFA just needs to treat this the same way as the Miyabi incident (i.e. ignore it/don't make a stink about it/deem it as an obvious fake not worthy of their attention) and all will be well...hopefully.

A quick summary of the article.

- Kanna was spotted outside a station in Yokohama
- While the witness was wondering if she was waiting for another H!P member, Hashimoto shows up. Before coming to any conclusions thinking there might be more people on the way, the two of them start walking away instead.
- The two of them headed for a nearby cinema and got tickets for Hana Yori Dango: Final.
- Since there was still time before the movie started the two of them sat down on a bench in the lobby. The witness describes that there seemed to be a distance between the two, probably because people were walking past them all the time. Kanna had a cap to cover her face just in case, but Hashimoto didn't really have anything and had to occasionally cover his face with his hands.
- After a while they held hands and started cuddling, but the witness could tell they were holding back, or they just started going out recently. (The rest is basically about what's going in the pictures)
- There have been rumors from before about C-ute having contact with Johnny's Jr. Could they have met back then?
- After the movie the two of them left the cinema while holding hands. Surprisingly they didn't head anywhere else after that and the date actually ended right there.
- "A refreshing couple that doesn't emit the smell of a scandal at all"

I think Up-Front, H!P, the girls themselves and the wota are completely over this kind of stuff. Girls are growing up and they have to live a life. We're not in the 60's, 70's or 80's. Idol-ing is not the same. H!P tried hard to manage it with the old school rules, but 21st Century rules overwhelmed them. That's why Idoling or AKB48 are doing worse than H!P, because they are so mini-skirt, cute looking stuff, old school themed, that they only appeal to a few. The 30K/60K that H!P groups currently manage to sell is because they appeal to a major audience, mixing wota and non wota. The most conservative wota already left to groups like AKB or Idoling, so I don't think Up-Front takes any move with Kanna at all. Miyabi was kissing his boyfriend kind of tipsy abnd nothing happened. Kanna is simply holding hands. Like the article says, it's the less scandalous scandal. In fact, how cute JE juniors and H!P kids get together.. lol

It's too bad she took her cap off. If she had kept it on it would have made it easier to deny that it was her (assuming H!P/UFA even publicly acknowledge the article).
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Linus on July 29, 2008, 11:19:19 PM
It's kind of sad how the article mentions the guy kept covering his face not to be recognized. He hasn't even officially debuted! His group in JE, it hasn't! On the other hand, last week a wota stalked Eri and Junjun, they were not covering themselves. Nobody knows current Morning Musume but they know an un-debuted member of JE Jr? UFA is doing something wrong  :lol:

Kanna clearly looks at the camera, so she knew these pics would came out. For Mari and also for Miki scandals, the girls talked to UFA first, then UFA released a press note before the pics were even published. This time the just let it go. It makes me think they won't take any action. They didn't with Risako dating Ryosuke, they didn't with Koha's date with that JE guy, they didn't with Miyabi; they shouldn't with Kanna. Of course the other girls are really important to UFA, more than Kanna for sure, but it'd be so unfair to punish her and not the others; I think they're gonna do nothing. I hope to be right. Kanna has one hell of a talented voice.

I didn't know Koharu was rumored to be dating a JE guy, when did that happen?
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Linus on July 29, 2008, 11:47:58 PM
Not too long. She was spotted at like a bay-area holding hand with a JE boy whose name I don't remember. It was on a gossip mag too. There we no pictures, tho, so I decided not to even mention it, as far as I remember, but some people at H!O and JPM found it out too and talked about it extensively.

Once again, UFA cannot kick out Koharu, TV Tokyo is interested in her. They cannot kickout Maimi, ºC-ute is Maimi. They cannot kickout Risako. Berryz is Risako. They cannot kickout Miyabi, Buono! is Miyabi and Buono! is Pony Canyon. PC couldn't care less about scandals, Buono! sells that's all that matters to keep Miya around. But what about Kanna? She is not a must. UFA could punish her with no major effect on the group. I hope it doesn't happen, tho. Kanna is love.  :)

You have to keep in mind that in order to get these "big scoop" pictures, the stalkerazzi who take them do so in secret, without the knowledge or consent of the people in them. The stalkerazzi use very powerful zoom lenses on thier cameras, which allow them to take these types of pictures from far away where they cannot be seen. So even though that one pic has Kanna looking in the direction of the camera, it does not necessarily mean that she actually saw it or was aware of it. And even if she did see it, the stalkerazzi would have hauled ass out of there once it was clear that he/she had been caught.

If the people in the pics (in this case, Kanna and the JE Jr kid) had actually seen the camera, and had actually known that someone was out there looking to take pictures of them, there's NO WAY that they'd be hanging that close and cuddling with each other the way they were because they know it could get them in trouble.


Alright, you can stop worrying now.

Seriously, Kanna was the last person in C-ute I would've expected to be Bubka-ed/Friday-ed etc. Oh well, I guess it's always the quiet ones that take you by surprise. The next thing you know it'll be Maimai caught with some toddler boy XD

I'm not too worried about this since UFA let the Miya incident slide and that seemed more "inappropriate" with the whole kissing thing. And I really don't think Kanna's guy is that cute, then again I never did think any of their boyfriends were cute :P

At least include the so-called details, words. :lol:

Group name: Mariposa
Debut single: Belleze! (9/24)
A second single is scheduled to be released around Dec-Jan, as well as an album after that.
Since Buono! is kind of directed towards a younger generation, Mariposa is supposed to aim higher than that.

With that said, I highly doubt this.

I really hope that they'll get a new show if Haromoni@ ends.  Otherwise how am I suppose to get my weekly dose of the greatest female musical pop group in the world.  They need more exposure since they are, afterall, Hello! Project flagship group, even if they're show aren't that popular, they have great concerts and other events...

I blame the higher ups for the bad ratings of the show, they can't think of anything better to feature.  and when people starts to like Moutube from the beginning, they use it too much and now it become somewhat boring.
well.... the girls may be blamed somewhat for not making the show more interesting, but they're at little fault since they probably can't work to the best of their ability with what they have to work with. 
really, they should create something similar to the old Hello! Morning. with games and events, success and failure all in one.  hilarious ensues...

Pretty sure that Mugen is referring to her eyelids.

Certainly possible, but it's not like it's that uncommon, right?  There's always been speculation about eyelid surgery, just like with boob jobs.  But also just like with boobs, there's non-surgical enhancements for eyelids. (falsies and eyelid tape, respectively)

While we're on the subject, anyone else wonder why none of Eri's costumes in the past year or so show her shoulders/upper arms?  Is it that skin condition I've heard about, or is it perhaps more similar to the supposed reason for a similar pattern in Maki's later costumes?

dunno about the eyelids, but what is the skin conditions you heard about Eri?  I've never heard anything... and what's this about the reason behind Maki costumes? 

well, back on subject, I don't see what's wrong with Sayu's eyelids anywayz.  It never occured to my her beauty is negatively affected by her eyelids.  But then again, I was never the type of person that is concerned about those things in the first place. 
We'll just have to wait and see the end results of it in a week or two, when she made her full recovery or whatever...

For those asking about the Maki thing:
I don't have the pic but in about 2004 (?) during a performance she had a sleeveless shirt on and when her arm was up you could see that she had a scar on her armpit, ever since when she was in H!P, her costumes were never sleeveless, even if she was performing with others and their's were sleeveless, her variation would be sleeves of some sort... and that just heightened the boob job rumor coz apparently under the arm is one place they can do the surgery from or something (i have no idea about the procedure, just going by what others have said)

Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Slack on October 24, 2008, 03:11:26 AM
That said, I was watching the Wonderful Hearts 2008 Summer concert, and Eri does have one costume that shows her shoulders.  Thing is, it covered her armpits...

I'm not saying she did or didn't have something done, cause I don't notice any apparent difference, but...

I'm just putting it out there.

But I'm not convinced about Maki having it done either
Maybe Eri just doesn't like shaving and they're saving her the hassle :P

To me she looks like Aya... I find the hairstyle similar to these:
(http://img147.imageshack.us/img147/9720/ayasn8.th.png) (http://img147.imageshack.us/my.php?image=ayasn8.png)
and I remember that last month (I'm not sure, but it wasn't too long ago) there was this rumor about a girl who saw Aya and Keita in a plane together, I think they went for vacation to Bali? (again I don't remember the name of the place but I think it sounds like that XD) 
To me, it would be really cool if they were still together after all these 3 years :)  although, I don't really know how this Keita looks, I only know he's part of W-inds

Old. These were taken a month or two ago, and were about Aya (and presumably Tachibana) going to a mutual friend's place to celebrate the friend's birthday. Needless to say it brought back questions of whether or not Aya and Tachibana are dating, as is evident by the rumours that Kruez mentioned above about the two of them being spotted returning from a vacation together.

musumenavi.jp added one more date to Morning Musume Spring Tour 2009 and also added a concert title that seems to be the 9th album title as well.

Quote
(1)モーニング娘。コンサートツアー2009 春 〜プラチナ 9 DISCO 〜
出演:モーニング娘
会場:横浜アリーナ(神奈川)
座席:全席指定

●公演番号01
5月9日(土)開場/開演:13:00/14:00

●公演番号02
5月9日(土)開場/開演:17:30/18:30

"Platinium 9 DISCO" seems to be the name of the tour and therefore will probably be the name of the 9th album too. The new dates are two concerts on 5/9 in Yokohama Arena. Previously, the concert's last gig was 5/2 in Osaka but it is not common to end Spring tours on small venues, so this was expected to be dropped later, like Up-Front's always does. However there is no envelope confirming this from UFA, but there is musumenavi.jp, reliable 99% of times.

As soon as someone reported on 2ch the talk on a possible graduation started.

It's Ai-chan's turn. It could be her.
Risa is from Yokohama. It could be her.
Junjun and Linlin are on a study abroad. It could be them.
Reina has been promoted to the front-line. Solo anyone? It could be her.
Sayu's popularity is raising. She could go celebrity-only idol. It could be her.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!

I really really hope they don't graduate someone right now. Honestly they need all the members they have! Graduating someone right now would only lower MM's popularity and thats the last thing they need. If this is a graduation tour then I predict its going to be....Eri or Ai-chan!?

^I know and I hate that! I didn't expect Konno or Makoto to graduate and they did and also didn't expect Tsuji and Kago to leave so fast. Honestly don't know who its going to be. I thought Ai-chan but it feels like she just became leader and they can't afford to graduate her yet since nobody can carry MM vocally like she can. Then I thought Eri but recently she been singing a whole lot more than she use to and is really in the for front during concerts. Maybe Risa but just like Eri she has been singing a lot more and even got a solo song. Then there is Sayu who doesn't really get lots of singing parts or center parts but has the personality and popularity that MM needs. Koharu could leave but Koharu as a soloist without Kiari is scary and she is quite popular with kids and wota. Reina could go solo but recently she has been the front of everything and will most likely be the new face of MM. Jun/Lin are exchange students but they haven't even made their mark on MM yet and it would be kind of lame just to send them back after just bringing them here. Mitsui I doubt because she is the future of MM..but also she could go the Kon and Makoto route and leave to focus on her studies. Really I have no idea  :lol:

Post by: Linus on December 23, 2008, 11:03:54 PM
2ch is not so sure about the smaller venue meaning no graduation. For some reason UFA couldn't perform in Yokohama and decided to add a venue in Tokyo, where the girls live and UFA offices are. That can have a second meaning to it. The change might be a schedule conflict issue. They replaced a one day, two shows on Yokohama for a two days, four shows on Tokyo: more shows to compensate the lack of Yokohama Arena. UFA approaches Yokohama only when Saitama is not available for the final gig; having both unavailable is quite weird.

Even without a graduation or a major event, UFA would guarantee a big gig for most Morning Musume concerts. Not having it is quite depressing because it's like assuming the current Morning Musume cannot fill it anymore. And that is sad. On a personal note, I think only Ai could fill a big venue for her graduation now; any of the other members could go off at one of the small ones, and this is what might be happening in May 2009 according to 2ch.

PS- I can't translate all that well so maybe Ayabie can help posting all the other gossip 2ch is having around (auditions, groups... it's quite interesting)  :yep:

Post by: Risastar on December 23, 2008, 11:29:02 PM
But MM doesn't have big concert events anyways like Yokohama and SSA anymore and they haven't for while. The only time they get those arena's are when someone is graduating or a H!P concert and never just for a regular MM concert tour. They have been performing at smaller halls for quite some time and I don't think they will use big arena's anymore just for a regular tour. Besides they are already using Yokohama for EC graduation. Doubt they would graduate an MM member with only a 2,000 seat venue.

^I hope ur right, cuz I definitely don't want to see any Morning Musume graduation anytime soon.
Graduating the entire EC is already enough, they don't need to go and graduate a Morning Musume member at the moment.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: Linus on December 27, 2008, 09:39:10 PM
Elders graduation is nothing important but a symbolic move. They simply won't go by the H!P umbrella anymore, but no one is quitting the music business. If Tsunku has something in mind, whether it is a graduation or an audition, he will still go ahead with it. Morning Musume remained the same for a long time already (considering its all time period in between grads and auditions) so it shouldn't take long before Tsunku makes a move.

It's 2ch we're talking about, occasionally they hit bull's eye and they do provide interesting information and 'insight' when they feel up to it, but most of the time they don't know as much as we do. As for no one other than Ai being able to fill a big venue for her grad, I would think if any of the gorokkies were graduated at a smaller venue there would be quite an uproar. And hasn't it been a long time since big venue concerts gradually started to disappear from MM concert schedules? It seems UFA is looking to reap in as much profit by scheduling more shows at smaller venues, than fill up the same number of people at a big venue playing less dates.

If they were neighbours living in the same apartment/condo building, it would certainly increase the chances of shots like these happening. At any rate, there aren't shots of them holding hands or gazing into each others eyes or leaving in the same car/cab. More likely than not this was just coincidence.

2) - She's carrying a suitcase, maybe costumes for the drama? Rehearsal for concert?
3) - If it is a TV studio or office building, don't the girls go to those places with their assigned agents from UFA?
4) - The guy appears almost 3 meters behind Aichan as they leave the building, talking on a cellphone, but on all the other pics Aichan is alone, near a taxi stop, with the suitcase, so...where is the scandal?

Just a few things, and again, I may be wrong

Ai-chan lives in that apartment building IIRC, several people elsewhere theorized that she was heading to the 1/25 concert.

@BigDnm: The pictures are from a stalker who posted them on 2ch, not from a tabloid. In fact no print tabloids have bothered to mention this (Tantei File posted about this but they are really unreliable, not at all like Friday for instance).

Really, like reyfer said, there's nothing in those pictures that suggests that Ai and Shun are a couple, they just don't seem to be paying any attention to each other at all, they're not even getting in the taxi together or holding hands or anything. They just have hats that look the same  :roll: I bet UFA and whoever Shun's agency is will let this pass.

Well, the original article came from the Korea Times (a big English-language newspaper in SK) and a Japanese article about this audition was posted on Yahoo Japan (the article came from Yonhap News, a big Korean news agency), and I also heard about that announcement from Makoto. I guess UFA is going to make an all-Korean group to compete against the K-pop girl groups like SNSD and Wonder Girls...kind of like Ice Creamusume. I hope they get some good singers!

I would like H!P to have a presence in the Korean market, so H!P or Morning Musume auditions are fine.  and knowing them, If this is for MoMusu, then they'll have one or 2 winners, then runner-ups will have a chance to train and become H!P eggs or even a Korean group right off the bat. 
Either way, it'll be nice.  and most likely Morning Musume will make another appearance in Korea.  hopefully we'll see something good.

I read somewhere that some H!P members were caught using performane enhancing stuff during the '03 sports festival. Is this true and is it known which members were involved?

^Yeah, my gut feeling is that it's probably a joke/sarcasm/trolling.  To me, it just doesn't make any sense, since I don't think that anyone took them that seriously to begin with.  An accusation like that would probably make the company put the girls involved on haitus, and I don't remember any mention of conspicuously long absensces from that time.

If it's a joke, on the other hand, it makes a lot of sense to say that maybe Yuko was fed up with losing in the running events so she took something. In fact her struggles with the running events was played up for dramatic effect in one sports festival video from around that time. Any way I look at it, it just makes more sense as a joke than anything.

Of course, to quote the last US administration, "the absense of evidence is not evidence of absence".  This is all conjecture, and I might be completely wrong. Though I'd think such a story would have stuck around in the fan community if it were true, just because I've personally never heard of it doesn't mean that no one has... (in other words I'm pretty close to 100% sure that it's not true)

今月中に驚愕のユニット結成が判明するよ。
娘のお荷物+ベリのトップ+ビッグなあの娘+nksk
ユニット。しゅご関係。

で、後驚きだけど5月までに桃子のソロデビューの発表がある。
事務所の予定では、6月17日シングル発売。
作詞・作曲ともに外部から。「初恋」みたいなタイトル。

"We will be getting some shocking revelations of a new unit this month.
MM's 'luggage' + Berryz' top member + that huge girl and Nakasaki
It will be related to Shugo Chara.

Also, it's set in the future but before May they will announce Momoko's solo debut.
The agency is planning for a single to be released on 6/17.
Lyrics and arrangement are by other people. The title will be something along 'Hatsukoi'."


Most of these posts you take with a pinch of salt, but this seems to be one of those reliable ones. The unit is already announced, but can we expect a Momoko solo single? Her solo radio was just announced today so it's very likely, not to mention something the agency would go for.

So I read the new MM interview with Hot Express in H!O... and in it Ai says:

Quote
-- With your first American concert, Morning Musume is surely going through changes. What else is in store for the group this year?

Takahashi Ai: I'd like to make things new. So the new members...
Jun Jun: She said it!

Kamei Eri: Do you know something?

Takahashi Ai: I don't. It's just that the current lineup is the longest Morning Musume has ever gone without changing. About two years. So I think it's about time something happened.

Ai-chan wants new members so she can leave!..jk! Really though I do not want new members I love this line up so much. They all have been through so much together adding some newbies in would just ruin it. Besides that Jun Jun and Lin Lin barely get featured so they would just continue to be back round fodder if newbies join. Tsunku hasn't mentioned anything yet but I bet you he is planning something he always is and I'm scared :cry: This line-up is just starting to break through and get attention they don't need any new members!

Well the one about Momo's solo thingy, I already knew... though if it were to come true then It would be nice to have her as a soloist... that girl is a great entetainer and her singing is improving so it would be a great combo X)

About Ai-chan's suspitions... her suspitions are really logic... two years without a change in the line up... who knows Tsunku always has an ace under the sleeve

There's a rumor about S/mileage releasing a cover mini-album this summer. Apparently it's a 4-unit group from a few years ago, most likely SPEED or T&C.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: kazimarie on June 07, 2009, 06:03:15 AM
If its a cover album wouldn't that mean whoever they are covering would most likely be an inactive group and SPEED isn't inactive at the moment, i think it would be interesting though for them to cover T&C but if this turns out to be true isn't tsunku just recycling his old ideas lately?

Post by: Slack on June 07, 2009, 09:09:31 PM
What's so bad about cover albums?

Tsunku covered A Hard Day's Night. (more for his own vanity though)
W's first was a cover album.
The entire Folk Songs series were covers.
Cover You is damned good.

H!P appearances on Music Fair 21 and Uta Doki were also great showcases of H!P and covers.

I get conceptually why cover albums may be objectionable, as some people fetishize originality for originality's sake.  But if you've they're good songs and you're not familiar with the originals, they might as well be new songs for all you know.  Why does that deserve more spite than say, the current Morning Musume singing Morning Musume songs from over a couple years ago?  Those are essentially covers too, right?


But yeah, ever since about 2005, I'd say Tsunku has been writing fewer songs for H!P.  Basically he was only writing for Morning Musume, V-U-den, Berryz, C-ute, and Gocchin.  Everyone else was singing songs written by other songwriters.  Don't forget that Tsunku is the executive director of TNX, has his own restaurant, produces health socks, has a wife and twins, now has his foot in the door of the video game industry with Rhythm Tengoku, and still manages to find time to write songs and produce idol acts.  The guy has a lot more on his plate now than when he wrote almost every song for every H!P act.  I have nothing but respect for the amount of work Tsunku takes on.

Back to the issue at hand, a 4-member group from a few years ago, eh?  Since a new Minimoni is in the works, we can probably rule that out.  T&C songs are generally a little more technically demanding and mature sounding than a group as young as S/Mileage can do, but C-ute covered some of their songs, so it's not completely ridiculous. 4-nin Tanpopo songs seem about right in tone for a younger group, but somehow it just doesn't seem to fit.  Unless we're talking about one of these groups, or maybe Coconuts Musume *snicker*, we might have to look outside of Hello! Project for a 4-member group.

can anybody translate the japanese in english please?

Basically, it says that there's 3 singles with 3 units and 3 unknown songs each that are coming out on 2009.09.09.  The 1st has Tanpopo# and two unknown units, the second has Pucchi Moni V and two unknown units, and the third has Shin ("New") Mini Moni and two unknown units.  Prices for each are  ¥1,890 and ¥1,365 for the limited and regular versions.

Based on what we know about the upcoming cover album, anyone else want to bet that these unknown units might be some of the same ones? i.e. High-King, Aa!, ZYX-α, Zoku v-u-den, and two others?  The only two other units on that album are Berryz and C-ute, but I doubt that they'd be the two mystery units.

I dunno if this is in the right place or not... but some information about the future of MoMusu was gained at the Tsunku Q&A.

Someone asked him if we could expect a new generation of Morning Musume this year.  Tsunku said that it's unlikely that it'll happen this year, but general plans are in place for a new generation, the specifics have not been worked out yet though.

Someone asked about the new shuffle groups, and why he was going with remaking old units over making new shuffle groups.  Tsunku said first, that it would be very sad if he had to retire all these great songs because the groups are no longer around, but, there will also be new shuffle groups this year along with the remade ones.

Also, at the GoH reception, Jabronisaur asked Junjun and Linlin "will you be getting a photobook at any time?" and they nodded "look for it soon."

And I'm looking forward to those PBs! :yep: (especially LinLin's for some reason... perhaps partly because of how awesome she was at AX...)

Umeda Erika will be graduating from H!P this autumn. It was announced during today's Kakumei Gannen (http://forum.jphip.com/index.php?topic=18872.0) at Osaka. Apparently she's aiming for a modeling career of some sort.

It's pretty much settled, but I'll wait for an official announcement before a thread is made.

Wowowowowo

C-ute will be this chibidibidii unit

"It's so small"

But they don't need new members, Kanna and Umeda barely had lines in singles.. If they added new members it would just be "yay more backdancers"...

Sadly I doubt I will notice Umeda Erika missing except for the group size becoming much smaller in only one year D:

It seems that the new units (Pucchi, Tanpopo, Minimoni) never came to shine and release their own material. Ouch.  :doh:

Not that I had expectations about it happening, but since there was the rumor.. :tama-mad:

AKB (and all the others groups) + H!P will make an Idol Japanese version of "We are the World" (so I guess it's for a single) because of this disaster. They are going to donate the total amount of sales. NO OFFICIAL CONFIRMATION.

This is most likely just a rumour- but it would be really amazing if they did! :D Or atleast some kind of song H!P Allstars only... Female Idol All Stars... :lol:

Post by: Slack on March 31, 2011, 09:39:45 AM
Usually with the similar charts I've seen for member earnings, they're educated guesses based on how much tax they paid.
That's probably why there's 2 columns there. First column is tax paid, second column is estimated gross earnings.

Also, they usually list figures in multiples of 10,000 yen, so Nacchi's 6,432 there is actually 64,320,000 yen.
Using a rough 2002 average figure of 125 yen to 1 USD conversion rate, that works out to $514,560
For comparison's sake, Yossy's 38,240,000 yen in 2002 is $305,920.

Just as an aside, I'm using USD and US salaries as points of comparison, because they're easier for me to think about.

The figure for current Morning Musume has Ai-chan and Gaki-san at the high end with 35,000,000 yen, and 8th gen at the bottom with their 18,000,000 yen.
In the last few years, the conversion rate has fluctuated around 83-90 yen per USD.
Using a rough value of 87 yen per USD, this works out to $206,896 on the low end up to $402,298.

While these numbers might seem a bit low in comparison to famous western music acts, you have to keep in mind that the Japanese music market doesn't have the same global reach.
Additionally, most of these girls are in groups so any profits that their act gets are split between them.
Hamasaki Ayumi, being a solo artist, obviously would get paid a bigger share of her profits.
Without comparing to western artists or top solo acts, I think $200k up to $400k a year is pretty damn good for girls in their teens and early 20s.

Sure the figures have dropped since the boom times of 2002, but that's to be expected, given the increased competition.
But I think it's good to keep it in perspective that these girls are getting paid what would be in the US, 6-figure salaries.
They work hard for the money, and I think it seems like a fair amount.
As long as they're still making good money, I don't see H!P dying out anytime soon.
Title: Re: Hello! Pro GOSSIP!
Post by: tiny on March 31, 2011, 02:58:02 PM
Also, it is unknown how much of their salary comes in the form of company provided living accommodation. Living space in Tokyo, where most of the H!P members live, is rather expensive. Up-Front does own a considerable amount of real estate, financed with earnings from the Golden Era. Having a company provided apartment may be part of the incomes listed above.

Furthermore, it is believed H!P members receive a regular salary and some of them may have extra income from individual work such as photo books. This is different from western artists who usually get a (rather low) percentage of the proceeds of CD, ticket, etc sales and have no regular income.

If it's true, I'll be SOOOOO happy!

New show "もえこん" ("MoeKon") starting on TV Tokyo 7/11 @ 3:00 am!
It's near the bottom of this pic, click for bigger
(http://i53.tinypic.com/28qrw5j.jpg)

2ch thread says:

毎日こんこん

It says the August issue of B.L.T. says that もえxこん ("Moe x Kon") will be airing as a 10-15 minute show every day Mon-Sun at varying times from 2-3.
"Every day KonKon"

I'm assuming the ending time for 7/20 is a typo and should be 3:05 instead of 3:50.
The "Moe" of the title is supposedly fellow new announcer Ueda Moeko (植田 萌子):
(http://i55.tinypic.com/142d7ki.jpg)

You may remember her from other shows with the TV Tokyo new announcers as the cute girl who sat next to Konkon in the front row.

I think I need to see at least one other piece of evidence before I'm convinced though.
One scanned page from a TV guide with only a title and a starting time isn't quite enough for me.
If I saw the B.L.T. pages or an official site, that'd do it.

I just downloaded today's Oha Star, and right after Saki's goodbye VTR, it DOES say a new oha girl is joining tomorrow!

That screenshot I posted above is legit, but I didn't notice before that there's still a sticker on it that's covering some info.
Here's a screenshot I just made that shows what it is.
(http://i.imgur.com/bNss4.png)

What it says is "Member of that famous group!!"
The hair length and shape of her sillouette match too!
It's even in her member color!

That seals it! Eripon is the newest member of Oha Girl Maple!

I think this is ready for the News thread!

The three newspaper articles above say that Maeda Yuuka will retire from S/mileage on 12/31 to devote herself to college entrance exams.
There has been no official notification of it.

There has been nothing from the official twitter accounts about it, and at the moment Ameblo is down for maintenance.
Opinion on 2ch is split over whether or not this is a lie.

My suggestion is to wait until we get any official word of this.
Until then, take this as a rumor.
If there is any confirmation, this will probably get its own thread.


Edit:
Now the official announcement has come out. The jig is up.

They're "just friends"

高橋愛&あべこうじ熱愛!お迎えデート撮られた(1/2ページ)

元モーニング娘。の高橋愛(25)がお笑い芸人、あべこうじ(37)との“お迎えデート”を撮られた。15日発売の写真週刊誌「フライデー」が、車中のツーショット写真とともに掲載している。同誌は「同棲中」とも報じており、事実であればモー娘。の先輩である藤本美貴(27)&庄司知春(36)夫妻に続く“アイドル&芸人夫婦”誕生の可能性も!?

昨年9月にモー娘。を卒業し、NHK大河ドラマ「平清盛」(日曜後8・0)に清盛の長男の妻・経子役として17日から登場する高橋に“衝撃的”な初ロマンスだ。

 「フライデー」は、「高橋愛が『R-1』芸人と同棲中!」のタイトルで、車中デートや2人が都内の自宅マンションを別々に出る姿をキャッチ。また、高橋の仕事先である東京・渋谷の同局前まであべが国産マーチで迎えに行って30分間待機し、合流してからは高橋の次の仕事までの2時間、食事を楽しんでいる様子を掲載している。

 高橋を大きな“愛”で包んでいるあべは、ウザい笑顔とハッピー漫談で人気を博し、6度目の挑戦となる一昨年2月のピン芸人日本一決定戦「R-1ぐらんぷり2010」で優勝した苦労人。07年には、26歳のときに結婚し一人娘ももうけた前妻と離婚している。

 モー娘。に10年1カ月在籍し、4年4カ月のリーダー歴を誇った“看板娘”があべと出会ったのは、モー娘。在籍中の昨年5月に出演した舞台「ハムレット」での共演だった。

 同誌は関係者の話として、2人は昨年9月の高橋の卒業を待って交際をスタート。ほどなくして一緒に暮らし始めたと報じている。卒業後は女優業にまい進している高橋だが、あべの存在が大きな原動力になっていたのか。モー娘。が所属のハロー!プロジェクト勢の結婚も増えており、支障はない?

 高橋の所属事務所はサンケイスポーツの取材に対し、「仲のいい友達の1人と聞いています。同棲はしていません」と同棲報道については完全否定。あべの所属事務所も「いい友達の1人と聞いています」としているが、関係の進展に注目だ。

No matter what her status is, I'm just glad it's not Sanma-san...that would just be too much. Unless...this comedian guy is the cover up for Sanma-san??? :panic:

I love 2ch rumour mongers. They're expecting a 12th gen auditions at either the start or end of the Morning Musume spring tour.

Reason? This:

www.musume-audition.com (http://www.musume-audition.com)

It's blank right now, but stalkery wotas have observed that they clear the page right before each new audition. Before they announced the 11th gen auditions, the 10th gen audition information was wiped. And now we're at a blank slate again, so there's a lot of speculation that they're prepping for a new auditions process.

And then some enterprising wota hacked some data:

Created for 9th gen auditions. XD Last updated after the 11th gen winner was announced. It's a blank slate right now, we don't know if there's going to be a 12th gen auditions, but I can hear the clock ticking! :lol:

EDIT: Note that the Masaru Funahashi guy is the stage production director for the 2010 Pikapika spring tour. XD Some wota dug up his name. XD

A translation for those of us who cannot read Japanese would've been nice.

That being said, considering the references to Nacchi and Takahashi, I'm guessing it's another boyfriend (or even marriage) rumor?

^Well it says:

"Scoop! Another former Morning Musume member heads towards marriage!?"

Yeah. So marriage rumour. There are only so many unmarried former Musume after all...and it has to be someone that would warrant it being a scoop, aka someone still with a high profile, which means Nacchi or Aichan...or maybe even Goto Maki. Hmmm....XD

It's Aichan.

In fact, she got married already. Here's a photo from the wedding with her new husband:

^Ahahaha! Nice trip :P

That's from her stage play, the Wedding Singer, for those not in the know.

:lol:

Watch it was that same pic from the stage play that sparked the rumor in the first place.
:P

Seriously, considering how a lot of these gossip rags make up shit out of nearly everything they see that's "out of the ordinary", it wouldn't surprise me at all.

That shillouette picture looks like the promo pic for Happy Summer Wedding so it should refer to someone up to 4th gen.
My bet is that Yossi and Rika have eloped to Canada (or Netherland, or Spain, or wherever gay marriage is legal :P )

Let’s see. This is what i made out of 2ch:

Married in 2000.

Since he was just starting as a comedian and didn’t do any other job, he didn’t make much money.

So his wife had to finance him and his career too. He lived in her apartment at her expenses and yet was inviting co-workers over to eat and all that.

He left her though… while she was pregnant with his child.

She gave birth to the kid alone while he had an affair with some way younger girl.

She raised the kid alone while still working.

Abe came back to her after some years. He was still unsuccessfull as a comedian and didn’t have money.

Continued having affairs.

Started getting violent.

Wife attempted suicide.

Went into recovery in the country area. Had to quit job.

Divorced since 2007.

I hope that it does not turn out to be the case that H!P OG's with the first name of "Ai" wind up hanging out with destructive guys.

Rumor is that the new Patlabor live-action movie will have Mano Erina in a starring role!

translated by gabrielle on facebook:
Fan: can we hope to eventually have a foreign screening? I think there is a way to have enough interested people.

UFL: We know that some fans are interested. Nothing has been decided yet but I will let you know if there is something.

UFL: On top of that, the more fans on UFL and fans that ask us, the more likely we can go forward with this.

Crappy translation because the French there is a tiny bit weird

basically a chance for livestream for sayugrad if we are vocal and say we are willing to pay
