from interview mag

i am REALLY feeling the hairy legs sticking out from underneath his patchwork oklahoma housewife dress in this. are you letting it all grow out because your husband has been away for so many months, hitching rides in the cabooses of trains and searching for work tilling the fields? do u get cold during the long oklahoma nights with the coyotes and the prairie dogs crying out in the distance? i am here chri55ybaby, just a romantic drifter who is a skeleton, here to sooth your aching loins with my banjo music and honeyed southern drawl

Someone unearthed these gems from the depths and I thought I’d share. The interviews are from mags around mid-2004.


Q: A recent emotional story?

T: Koyama-kun said he’d take me shopping and it’s been 2 months already so I realized it was just lip service. (laugh) But recently I went shopping with Shige-kun. He taught me things like what not to wear and I learned what I should wear so it was really fun.


T: We get along well, right?

S: I wonder about that (laugh).

T: Shige-kun is the only one in NEWS who took me shopping.

S: Ahaha! That was just after work sometime, I was forced to take you along.

T: Huh? I had fun learning about shops from you. Koyama-kun promised me that we’d go shopping but he never invited me.

S: That was just Koyama being polite.

T: Yes, if I bring up the promise with Koyama he just laughs and says be was being polite. But I like Shige-kun’s fashion sense I decided to go with you ♪

S: Really? That time I wanted to go shopping too so I was only half joking… I also asked from politeness “Wanna come with me?” but Tegoshi was like “When? When? Today?” and started coming towards me looking like you were about to cry. I couldn’t turn you down.

T: Dahahahaha!

S: You’re always manipulating like that.

T: Waa! I don’t! I started looking like I was about to cry because if I was really rejected I’d be sad. I was really happy at the sunglasses Shige-kun picked for me. I’m looking forward to the day we go shopping again together!

S: I’m not going with you anymore (serious look).

T: Huuuuuuh?

S: Wahahahaha! I’m just joking. I like Tegoshi’s cute side.


Damn, I wish I could see chibi Tegoshige shopping…

  • interviewer: Would you call the song a bisexual anthem?
  • brendon: I mean, that's a bold statement, but I'd be honored to call it a bisexual anthem - that's kind of awesome. I feel like (bisexuality) needs to be celebrated, because a lot of times I feel like people are ashamed and they hide it and they might be a little scared to open up about it. Being able to do that is a big step for me.

[TRANS] Snippet from Jay Park’s “FIGHT CLUB” interview from WKorea mag, March issue

Interviewer:
Speaking of acknowledgement and attentions a CEO of a label a businessman.

Jay:
Not referring to those who like me as a celebrity, but those who acknowledge my music, business and my lifestyle increased a great deal so it’s really nice. Besides evaluations I get, if i could change my surroundings I’ll be even more happy.
Words start spreading AOMG treats their artists well and other companies and their treatments get better… like so it’ll be great if it could catch on.
