It’s definitely quite sudden, and somewhat of a horrific shock for fangirls, but according to various news sites as well as the singer’s management company, Jin Akanishi is indeed getting married. Why am I posting this? Well, it intrigues me how one artist could be working so hard without slowing down and still find time to get married, much less have any sort of relationship. I mean, he’s probably very busy with his upcoming North American shows, as well as with the promotion of his singles. Also, because of how hard some of his fans are taking it. I’ve read how girls are feeling depressed and heartbroken as if they were in a relationship with the man. But let’s be realistic here, he’s just a good-looking performer but as normal as you and I could possibly be. Am I disappointed that he’s off the market? Not in the least. I wasn’t caught in a fantasy world like most. However, don’t you think that entertainers (particularly young male entertainers) who get married somewhat causes a depreciation of their fanbase? I think so. Continue reading “Jin Akanishi Finds Time To ‘Takeover’ & Get Married?”

I’m loving Jin Akanishi‘s latest single “Sun Burns Down.” It’s much better than his previous “Test Drive” and the beat is hypnotic. It definitely sounds like what’s on mainstream radio now, without the suffocating auto-tune, so kudos to Jin for showcasing his true talent. Continue reading Jin’s “Sun Burns Down”: Hot or Hmmm…

Mr. Kitagawa has stated in the past that one of the main reasons why he doesn’t handle female groups is because girls are more difficult to work with. Even though I’m a girl, I kind of agree with him on that one. Often times there’s just so much drama surrounding girl groups; members filing lawsuits without the opinion of the leader, as well as competing for leadership position and main vocals in a shady manner. It’s definitely tough managing one group much less a dozen, and I’m certain Johnny would recruit hundreds at a young age to begin the training process. So, in order to take some load off his shoulders I’ve come up with a few suggestions: Continue reading “What if Johnny’s Entertainment had female idol groups?”
But is the U.S ready for Jin? The pop singer is no rookie when it comes to the music industry; Jin has accomplished quite a lot back in his homeland of Japan when he was 1/6 of the Jpop group KAT-TUN. But now everyone is wondering if he can conquer the states with his honey like vocals and sex appeal. Most recently, Akanishi uploaded a video on YouTube depicting the journey of recording his first English language album. The interesting webseries titled “The Takeover“, will give fans a first hand view of Jin working with several internationally known artists and producers, including Stereotypes, Jason Derulo, Justin Bieber, and Sean Kingston. There’s no question that he has talent but I’m very skeptic when it comes to foreign singers, particularly Continue reading “Jin Akanishi is ready to “Takeover” the U.S.”
For today’s Heatseekers I’m taking it international, Japan to be more specific. This Jpop group has been dropping nothing but hits since their debut and it’s only fair that I included them in the series because they’re truly talented (and good looking). The group I’m talking about is no other than KAT-TUN. Check out my video selections below: Continue reading “Heatseekers: Then & Now”
Jpop artist Jin Akanishi will be releasing his new single “Eternal” on March 2, 2011, however the full audio has been unveiled online. Personally I like the song.

Vote below: Continue reading Jin Akanishi’s “Eternal”: Hot or Flop?
