And the Johnny’s rumors keep rollin’ rollin’ rollin’~ This one involves cross-dressing!

uso-ippai:

We’ve all heard rumors about Kamenashi Kazuya’s hobby in cross-dressing, but there are also other Johnny’s who share the same hobby as Kame.

It’s Kanjani8’s Yokoyama Yu. He dresses up as a woman a lot for the Kanjani8 show, Kanjani no Shiawake. And those experiences ignited something deep within him and he started experimenting. He tried to hide it at first but he met Kame at a press conference once and said right out that he wanted to try wearing a skirt. People have even said that he has dressed up as a woman in public before.” Said a production insider.

Yoko might like wearing women’s clothing, but like Kame, he isn’t doing it because he enjoys the male attention.

“He just thinks that it’s important to polish his womanly fashion sense, doing so will allow him to be more creative in creating his roles when he acts.” Said a television writer.

Rumor has it that Kame and Yoko have tried establishing a cross-dressing club together within Johnny’s. There were at least 20 Jrs. who showed interest in joining, which shocked the both of them. Additionally, between members of this club, they call it “J-Kai.”

“It’s the combination of Johnny’s J and cross-dressing’s (josou) J. The two of them even talked about doing a collaboration for the fashion show XX’s Girls Collection to walk the runway in women’s clothes.

Recently, there is also word that cross-dressing has piqued Aiba Masaki’s interest because of his co-star Matsuko Delux in Mikeneko no Holmes. Perhaps this signals the beginning of a cross-dressing trend within the entertainment industry?

Someone make a version of RuPaul’s Drag Race featuring Johnny’s?

KAT-TUN talks about Akanishi Jin’s marriage for the first time

On April 22nd, popular group KAT-TUN held a press conference before their concert at Tokyo Dome, and commented about former member Akanishi Jin’s marriage with Kuroki Meisa.

Tanaka Koki shared, “We also didn’t know about the marriage until media reported it. We felt like, ‘Oh, this is the another one.’“ ”He didn’t contact us, so I don’t know how should I comment about that,”Kamenashi Kazuya reflected.

       

According to reports, Akanishi Jin’s decision to study abroad in 2006 as well as his withdrawal from KAT-TUN in 2010 were only made known to the members after the fact. “I guess we [KAT-TUN members] are the only five people in the world who would never be surprised about that. We were surprised when he decided going abroad to study,” Kamanashi commented. “ If I didn’t say anything now, people would think I’m cold … so as a person, I would say, ‘Congratulations.’

Regarding Kuroki’s pregnancy, Kamenashi said, “It’s something to be congratulated on.” However, he also added, “Marriage means there is a partner [Kuroki], so I want him to do fine [to follow the rules].

KAT-TUN is in middle of their concert tour ‘CHAIN‘, which will take place in twelve cities. The final concert will be in Sendai on the 28th.
