      Weird how he isn’t gonna be a guest on this week’s Music Station then…?

    • Hillary

      I really don’t care for him or his music.

          Penny? Yo, wassup gurl? The last time I saw you was on BET every morning from 8 to 9am!

      So who’s the lucky one? Sam Smith or Kyary Pamyu Pamyu?

      • morning glow

        Kyary ofc.

          Great. :) ’cause some jpop crazed fans would probably automatically say otherwise.

      This picture reminds me of when she did her international tour and said she felt uncomfortable with how foreign fans kept touching her during photos…

      • Ja’Crispy

        That came to my mind as well. And it’s not even like a Ariana Grande diva thing. I guess the way we go about things is different. Unless that rule just doesn’t apply to celebrities who aren’t regular “creepy foreigners” lol.

          I remember her making that comment too – about how she was on tour in Europe and her fans would try to hug and kiss her. I know it’s a culture thing, but her fans need to understand that and *hopefully* not take it personally. I know some Europeans kiss each other on the cheek to greet each other, but in Japan that’s not normal and that’d make most people uncomfortable if someone they hardly knew just came up and did that.

          Anyways, besides her boyfriend, I don’t see her being very touchy with any Japanese people either – even when someone’s sort of close to her, she looks uncomfortable. So I don’t think it’s a race issue – I don’t think that she thinks all foreigners are “creepy”.

            yep :3

          • elimeten

            Trust issue maybe?

      • morning glow

        Sam Smith’s pretty feminine so I don’t think Kyary would feel uncomfortable towards him. But that’s just what I think!

    • omi

      funny thing is I know about KPP but not him :]

    • morning glow

      Sam Smith is amazing. I can’t relate to his lyrics much but I love his music. And he seems really sweet too. Every time I see someone comment on how fat or ugly he is, the more I want to cheer for this guy!

      My friend actually spotted him after she had dinner yesterday. As she walked out of the restaurant, she saw Sam Smith and waved at him, and he politely waved back!

      • Ja’Crispy

        I didn’t really know who he was at first, only his song, but he does seem like a really nice guy. Unlike many other celebs. (Saw him on Ellen)

    • Jo

      I like him when he was working with Disclosure and that’s about it. I couldn’t care less about Kyary.

    • Bop:

      I do wonder what the reaction will be in Japan if they ask what inspires his music. He openly tells that his album is about a man who broke his heart.

      • ampo9

        They spoke about it briefly on the Grammys news on Mezamashi TV (I’m pretty sure that was the show). No particularly strong reaction there, really. The presenters just kind of nodded.

      • Guest

        Japan is pretty accepting of diversity when it comes to foreigners or people in the creative fields (unless they’re mainstream celebrities). The problem is when the gay dude is an ordinary salaryman or something like that.

    • mi|kshake

      Cute pic of them both!

    • Koda Kumi

      Kumi has a photo with him, too.
