You people are way too nice to Maki
If I was a shareholder, knew nothing about Maki, and I saw that performance, I would think, "What are these people doing with my money?" But since she was pretty much a household name a few years ago, they know her star potential. And I think we all know how much japanese music execs value actual vocal talent over image. >_> I know how hard that song is to sing, which is why I'm saying she shouldn't have sang it. That's something you save for people who have little or no control over your singing career.
Don't get me wrong though, I'm still waiting for what she can do outside of H!P and UFW.
^^oh and tito, buying that album wouldn't help Maki at all, now that she's on a different label.
But I understand the feeling of wanting the merchandise for the sake of having it.
And Kumi is hilarious for doing all that.
