It’s out. May’n’s long-awaited and highly-anticipated (by a small group of otakus) interview filtered through Darkmirage is out for the world to read. And as expected, none of the questions chosen were of any significance and the answers were so generic I suspect May’n used a Bot to answer it.
This is why I cannot fathom the reason people would want to do "interviews" with her. It’s obvious that as an up and coming pop star targeted to the mainstream crowd, she and her PR gang cannot afford to have any cultural faux pas in their answers, and since they aren’t familiar with the intricacies of non-Japanese culture, it’s pretty certain they’ll stick to the safe answers.
The interview can be summarised with a "I like taiyaki, I can play piano, I have heard of roti prata, and I like to sing." She probably has answered the same questions from Japanese journalists a zillion times.
Now here are some questions that should be asked but will never be answered.
- Are you quitting school to be a singer? What if you fail? Then you’ll be stuck in a karaoke bar as a singer without paper qualifications!
- How does it feel to become famous? Do you still have real friends?
- Did you actually work face to face with the cast and crew of Macross F? Or did you just record the songs and have them sent over?
- Why did you accept a role of just "singing voice of Sheryl"? What benefits do you think it will bring you?
- If a girl isn’t pretty but can sing really well, can she be a pop star in Japan?
- Are you repulsed by a horde of screaming otaku?
- What do you feel about your tickets costing the same or more than established artistes with a far larger following?
- Tell us about what being a pop star is about. What is the workload like? What kind of activities is "work"?
- Tell us about any scary fan encounters or scandalous insider gossip about the entertainment business.
