[June 11, 2014] Yoshiki arrives to Taipei

Some media suspect she is his girlfriend; others confirm: “Yoshiki arrived in Taiwan at the afternoon with his girlfriend. Is understood that he and his girlfriend have ‘frequent interaction’.”

ENews says: “She’s the 28-year-old American TV actress Katie Gill. When she was 15, she was a model. At age 18 she moved to Osaka, and did commercials. Later returned to Los Angeles. She was a guest at "NCIS: LA” and other albums. In 2011 Yoshiki took her to attend the Grammy Music Awards.

[June 12, 2014] Yoshiki Classical World Tour Part 1 Taipei Press Conference

There was a press conference in Taipei. Taiwanese media seems to put a lot of pressure on him since his arrival. Acording to these articles “Yoshiki press conference was delayed for an hour before the start. He said he fainted because he’s jet lagged and tired. Yoshiki let his musicians and lead singer to be on stage together, but his girlfriend wasn’t there, when he was asked for the 28-year-old rumored girlfriend –American actress Katie Gill– where they will go for a walk after the concert, he play the fool and said: ‘I don’t know what are you talking about. This is no my girlfriend !!’

When came out, seemed a little bit disappointed, but when he saw the organizers brought the piano cake, he dug it with the hand to eat, that was quite funny, cute. Yoshiki also said that by night he will arrange a special song for the Taiwanese fans.”

The last article says: “Yoshiki also admitted that he hasn’t a very normal life, staying up late, drinking, doesn’t listen to the doctors advises. He said he will perform until he can’t and joked asking to his fans that he wants everyone to see his show as soon as possible, otherwise who knows when…bye bye. In fact, Yoshiki has a bad habit of being late, his big press conference yesterday was one hour late. He was asked why the singer and strings players are all ladies, he said he can settle them all in one dressing room. Life is not normal for a long injury healed; Yoshiki said his life is not healthy, don’t sleeping, drinking red wine. He only cares himself by eating vitamins, or going to the gym.” At the end says something that I coudn’t understand.

Yoshiki felt media pressure I guess, so he twitted: “I past out this morning… I think I’ve been traveling and working too much.. My dear fans and Taiwan press.. I’m so sorry I was late.. I fainted before this PC, I’ll still perform the show.. I talked to doctors, and I’ll continue the Yoshiki World Tour.. Love you! !”
