Sacchan (21), Ruby (22), and Ui Ando (21) appeared at Sankei Sports on the 18th to promote their debut single. The girls currently model for chubby girl fashion magazine “la farfa”.
Together the three girls weigh 210kg (around 463lbs) and they’ve formed a new unit called “la BIG 3”. Their debut song is called “Pochative ~Body mo Heart mo Glamorous~”; a cute way of making a play on the word pocchari (chubby) and positive. La farfa explains they use this phrase to encourage plump girls to be positive.
I’m not sure how I feel about this latest fad in Japan, but I am glad real chubby girls are getting some attention. I just wish they would get proper songs and get ups instead of just having to focus on food and their chubbiness. I mean, in their music video the girls are singing with ice cream, chicken legs, and hot dog microphones for goodness sake.
What do you guys think about the latest trend?
(PS: I would like to give a shout out to Fergie for helping me remember how to spell “g-l-a-m-o-r-ou-s, yeah~”)
