I read about the Koda Kumi gossip on a blog a few days ago but Iris from Rouge Deluxe has reported on it as well!
If you haven’t yet noticed Visee’s website has been down the past few days and it’s all do to problems with it’s spokesmodel, Koda Kumi!
If you’re not familiar with Koda Kumi she’s a Japanese pop star and of course the model image for Kose’s Visee line!
I won’t go into details about what happened with her as you can click your way over to Iris and read the details for yourself!
I will however say that I don’t think what was said was meant in an ill or mean spirited manner. I guess she thought she was being very “scientific” but it came out completely wrong! However, she’s cost Kose (and herself I imagine) a ton of money! You’d think she’d have known better then to say something like that! I’m wondering what Kose is planning to do with the new line up that just released?! New spokesmodel?
Anyway! Thought you might find it of interest if you live stateside and haven’t heard about it and happen to be a fan of Visee or Koda Kumi!
I want to bury my head in the Egyptian sands after watching this video!
I really love KT Tunstall. She’s honestly a very talented singer but damn she totally murdered this song!
I’m just somewhat happy they got the whistling part right at least……! I’m gonna go wash m ears out with soap now.
Remember kids there is a valuable lesson to be learned here: Never sing “Walk Like an Egyptian” acoustic!
Am I too brutal? I dunno…maybe….but damn if it didn’t sound bad to my ears!
The Muse’s two cents:
Bangles with an S. As in plural. As in a group of chicks singing a song. Why KT Tunstall thought she could pull off all the lyrics on her own with two other girls doing the “o e o” solo is beyond me!
Cosmetics will return shortly but now a word from our sponsor…….
Wow. That’s really the only word that comes to mind when I heard that New Kids on the Block are regrouping and rejoining the pop civilization as we know it. Wow.
This both scares and embarrasses me.
Would you look at Joey’s hat? The height of fashion circa the 90’s!
This basically means I have to embarrass myself by admitting that I actually loved this group when I was…11…12….13? It’s so long ago I can’t even recall my age how very sad! If you tell anyone about this I’ll deny it in aces!
Prior to discovering what real girly men are made of in Japan I was subjected to the girlish delights of New Kids on the Block (Hey, this isn’t Japan and we have poor imitation girly men here in the states! I just live here don’t blame me!)!
Now where as the Japanese produce idols that are seriously drool worthy we here in the US are subjected to such groups as the long forgotten Jordan, Joey, Danny, Mo, Larry and Curly (I forgot the rest of the names so I just added in the bit about Mo, Larry, and Curly).
Seriously I really did forget their names oh wait one just came to me! Donny! What about Jordan’s brother what’s his name? We can just go around calling him Mo for the remainder of this post!
I remember at first Jordan was the one I cried over (and hyperventilated and fantasized over) and later on I realized that a majority of the female population was actually crying over Joey so I quickly reverted to crying and screaming over Joey since everyone else was doing it and I didn’t want to be the outsider!
I think I was a late bloomer as everyone else was way into our friendly boy band before I was and I remember at the time my best friends Ellen and Kelly having their concert on VHS (VHS is probably before your time kids so go and google it) and it would be some sort of Friday ritual to sit down and watch it. Hell, I can even remember Ellen’s four year old sister dancing around to “Hanging Tough”….ah memories!
So what’s the point of this fine post?
No point! I’m just enjoying taking a trip down memory lane! Actually what I’m enjoying even more is the fact that the potential for funny is definately in this comeback! I need to laugh so bring it on New Kids! I welcome your come back with open arms! I can’t wait to see five grown men regroup and reform a boy band from 100 years ago! This should be awesome!
Hmmm…do you think Mark Wahlberg might consider making a comeback with the Funky Punch and releasing a new CD?
Maybe not. He’s kinda sorta an actor now I think? Only in American can you go from being Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch to Mark Wahlberg, Oscar and Emmy Nominated Actor!
Prior to heading home I leave you with this gem from youTube:
“Donny’s D on the backup drug free so put the crack up”!
What the hell does that even mean…..I think I’ll e-mail Mark before leaving work and ask him about the lyrics!
Oh my god.
I just read this on the news!
How overwhelmingly sad!
I’m utterly shocked and speechless!
Off the topics of cosmetics temporarily
If you LOVE John Barrowman and Bill Baily as much as me you’ll adore this clip!
That’s my new catch phrase! “Talk to the hand because the wrist is pissed” hehe!
I’m not sure what had me laughing more Bill Baily with his “I ain’t never gonna be your bitch!” (But he never had a problem being Dylan Moran’s bitch now did he?! I crack myself up sometimes!) or John Barrowman completely agreeing with Simon about what a show whore he’s been of late (Dancing with Stars, Buzzcocks, Torchwood, Who, The Weakest Link, Need I go on?)!
