Previous Thread: >>>/ot/234968

What was discussed in the last thread:

Yoshiki (X Japan)
>is an attention whore, is still milking hide’s death and is so desperate for American recognition that his band even performed at Coachella
>has a Russian sugar baby who’s nearly 30 years younger than him
>announces monthly that the new album is 99% finished (it’s not)
>hangs out with Marilyn Manson, Poppy and Titanic

Hyde and Gackt are aging terribly (plus the latter is possibly gay) and Atsushi Sakurai thinks he no longer needs to wear pants.

Kisaki (ex. Phantasmagoria) is a literal pedophile. And of course he gets away with it, because this is glorious Nipponland we’re talking about…
More can be found here: https://www.monochrome-heaven.com/topic/53544-kisaki-drama-2k18
Warning! Absolutely appalling details, pictures as proof.

At first I thought about making this jrock/vkei-only (because most conversations were about those), but then decided against it. Therefore you can also use this thread to rant about how horrible the idol industry is and how bad Ayumi looks nowadays.

The latest scandal:

X needs to disband. They're all too old and too busy trying to stay relevant to try to revive an 80's glamrock band in a country that idolizes mumblerappers, thugs and thots.

Damn, they're still around? I remember buying hella copies of that shit from Hot Topic and FYE just to look at the pictures of jrockers & pretend I could read Japanese. I thought they went under after they tried to make Cure USA, iirc their first and only issue was mostly just a bloody vampire photoshoot of Yoshiki, a horribly laid out Dir en grey concert review and then a bunch of filler.

all those supposed connections and this is still the best he can get? i guess it is american and pays money, so that's enough for him. i'm 50/50 on whether or not the x album is actually going to be released, but it will definitely lead to yoshiki milking hide more, with a briefer mention to taiji

hyde's album should probably be out though, after he released a meh collection of singles in 2018. speaking of him though, anybody catch the photos from his birthday with gackt? guests included a (not pictured) yoshiki, hyde's usual hanger on daigo, and gackt's unusual friend roland. guests did not include many other people over the age of 45, jrock sugar baby jaejoong, and seemingly no women at all. gackt's been making a big deal of his 20th solo anniversary being this year, i wonder if he's going to have his own mediocre album out this year

Roland? I can't find him…? Speaking of him, I know this isn't jrock, but this was in my youtube recommendations and immediately made me shudder… What a creep.

Hyde literally looks like a tiny grandma and Gackt, looks like Gackt… His little servant (Takumi or something) is also always with him. Shinya looks so weird too.
That whole party was probably spent talking about how great Hyde is.

And I highly doubt that Gackt will release an album, he would have mentioned it beforehand, no? All he's doing lately is being in commercials.

I can't speak nihongo but what's even the context of this? If I were those kids, I'd be creeped out with his plastic surgery ridden face up in my shit. Shouldn't he be in bed with gackt or something instead of signing children's soccer balls?

The kids touching his hair was kinda cute tho ngl.

I was really weirded out when I saw this. This nig is literally famous for having rich sugar mamas, he's obviously a terrible inspiration for the kids and shouldn't be going to children charity events and schools. It's like 12 years ago when the pussy cat dolls were all like WE WANT TO ENCOURAGE LITTLE GIRLS TO GROW UP BE STRIPPERS. Roland is like the male versiom of Vanilla, she got famous for her plastic surgeries but the difference is she never went to schools to see the kids like a celeb and shit. She's crazy but she's not far up her own ass like Roland and knows her lifestyle is not something kids should want

A lot of countries nowadays are pushing a lifestyle of glamour and sex over work and education to their youth. It's a trick to get a generation to avoid learning how to think and provide for themselves so that rich old farts can own them and their youth.

Kek at that money necklace, how childish…
Ever since Roland quit being a host (which was only a couple months ago), he kind of blew up even more, is constantly on tv etc. (And for some reason japanese women do find him attractive - or at least pretend to)
Maybe he's buying himself in? And we all know that money is the only thing Gackt cares about, he hangs around with all kinds of semi-famous, rich non-musicians.

There's no way Kyo is not mentally ill. All he does is write edgy shit about women and is still obsessed with abortion (cuz according to an old ass interview, his mother tried to have his aborted, but it didnt work out.)

He'll be 43 (?) soon, so he needs to move off the edgy phase already.

If you ask me, Roland is Gackt's sugar baby. There's no way that fruit loop isn't a closet case.

Also, I noticed that since the first anti-Jrock thread, Miyavi has been posting and mentioning more of his wife, as well as Yoshiki making a point to be on camera with his Russian SB. Coincidence? Not that I think any of them would lurk here, I just find it interesting after the sperging over those women in the old thread.

Good taste, anon. I'd second simply starting from their first album and working yourself up. Sissy Boy, Romanesque and Angelic Conversation are on of my favourite songs.
For albums, especially since you seem to like older stuff, I'd say Hurry up mode, Sexual xxxxx!, Seventh Heaven and Kurutta Taiyou. Six/Nine is very different, but maybe you still give it a try, it's suprisingly nice.
I'm rather disappointed in their newest album. The second last one also wasn't too exciting.

Gackt has barely had his ego checked since the mid 90s. he couldn't have been much older than 21/22 when he joined Malice Mizer, so he was very quickly associated with one of the stronger names in visual kei history. there's all sorts of stories of him beating up various other musicians and roadies in the 90s, he leaves a well known band and has his solo career make him even more famous, he's making connections with all sorts of other celebrities far more famous than him. he's had plenty of criticism over the years for being cringy, but nowhere near enough to get through the fact that he's been having his ego stroked for about 25 years. him being (imo anyway) increasingly more unbearable over the last 10 years comes from the fact that he's had more criticism recently than he ever did before when his music was original, his singing was better, his face still looked like a face. the more articles and comments come out criticising him, the worse he's going to get

the man claimed to be a 500 year old immortal for years and was rewarded for his mysterious and unusual personality with media attention, money, and sex. i don't really think there's any chance of him getting better any time soon - not his face, not his weird instagram choices, not his occasional awful statements, and definitely not his deluded career choices

A lot of them were married in their prime, I would say. But only my opinion and without any evidence.
I also look at Manas twitter often, since I still like the Gothic Lolita style (can´t help it…), and at least he´s just doing in what he is good in. Even though I sometimes wonder about the whole MMM-partys, with dining and so on. But the few fans left are pretty loyal, I guess.

I know there were rumors in the last thread about Yoshiki being married to his Russian sugar baby, but all I ever saw myself were a bunch of Chinese screenshots of her Instagram account with the name redacted and stills of him texting in Russian while on some TV show from years ago. I doubt he would marry a random Russian instamodel almost 30 years younger than him without showing her off for the arm candy factor. I also don't see a random Russian instamodel marrying one of the most famous Japanese men alive and keeping it to herself. I do believe he probably still has her as a thirsty Russian sugar baby, 1000%. Aside from that, I remember something about him almost getting married like twice. I think he's closet bi, tbqh.

I'm interested, but as a Jacksonville resident who has been to Met Park, fuck paying Rockville prices just to see Hyde in a crowd of pretentious, sweaty classic rock fans and bandsloots. It's basically a giant lot with no natural shade or sun protection, grass and mud (usually), the security is super anal about bags and bottles too so they won't let you bring liquids ($3-5 bottles at the park ofc) and they search your bags. On top of that, it's underneath a giant fucking overpass by the waterfront. I went there once for World of Nations and decided not to go back, of all the places to hold good shows in this city and they choose the shittiest one all because they can capitalize on the heat and humidity while you're trapped in a gated lot in the sun with a couple hundred other sweaty people trekking through the mud. Not worth it for just Hyde, even if I still was that much of a weeaboo.

I think Bou left because he was sick of being the girliest band member. When I brought my Cure magazines to school to look at the pics, my normie classmates would comment stuff like "she's cute, I'd bang her. You into chicks, anon?" when they saw me oogling pics of An Cafe and LM.C and the like. Bou was always styled like a girl.

>>14966
I read a post on Tanuki translations that was a list of all the Jrockers that were posted being seen going to/at kyabas and it said "every member but Shinya" which gave me a laugh. I also read one that said he was into ageplay which I could see with all the Cheburashka shit. Shinya is the weirdest DEG member.

No. 14977

>>14922
I can't. He probably works some shitty retail jop. Guys who were in vk bands can't get normal jobs, because of their past and because most of them probably aren't very intelligent or simply "normal" enough to begin with.
The only exception is Penicillin's Gisho. He even works as a higher up or owner of some business that not only pays well, but also allows him to occasionally still play gigs, so he really lucked out.
I also can't imagine that Bou was forced to have this girly image, it probably was something he himself came up with when they started out.

There were rumors on tanuki saying that Mana is married, but it's honestly so difficult to imagine lol

>>14953
Yoshiki's gf is in the OP, no? He dated a brunette for some time, even took her to events, but no marriage.

>>14966
Die is likely married (but said to be promiscuous), there are even pictures of her, but Kyo isn't - unless his wife is a complete doormat who allows him to play around with young women.
When pictures of Toshiya and that announcer surfaced they said they're only "friends"…lol
Girls on tanuki claim that Shinya is a complete freak and the longer you think about it, the more it seems that his shy personality really might be a facade.

Buck-Tick members are all married, minus Yuta who's allegedly a player and Sakurai is rumored to be divorced again.
I think the only ones who are officially married are Sugizo, Hyde and Miyavi.

Somebody in the kpop thread said that the scandals in the japanese music scene are much more extreme than korean ones, because the latter always try to lay low, but at least in the rock scene most japanese artists seem to be much more secretive than their korean counterparts imo.

What do you mean by MMM parties? I think nothing happens there really haha I was reading a girl’s blog and she said Mana is always his usual self. although he unexpectedly hugged her many times and even smiled, I think it’s maybe because he had seen her many times at events so he recognized her.

Supposedly Mana is married to Yukie Itoh, a producer for Midi:Nette. He said that they used to date pre-Malice Mizer era but have just been very close friends since then, and that their relationship transcends that of marriage, if I remember correctly. I don't know if he was just saying that so that fangirls don't come for him or if he really is just close friends/partners with her, or if they're even still together. My friend who goes to lots of MdM lives says she always sees her there though, so they're probably still at least friends.

We've had some stage48 nostalgia in these threads, did anyone else prefer Hello! Project groups? They were always my favourites when I was in my 13 year old weeb fantasy of wanting to be a idol. The pedo bait stuff usually seemed a bit less obvious than AKB so when I was a young teen it didn't bother me as much, even though I find it weird looking back now just how young some of the idols were. I preferred their system of multiple acts with overlapping units, Buono! were definitely one of the best they had. The dances were more fun to badly do in front of a mirror, and something made it seem like it was easier to become a H!P idol, even when there's so many 48 girls now.

At the same time, Hello! Project, especially Morning Musume, always had way better scandals than just dating old men. This isn't very up to date but it makes me wish I'd properly kept up with all the drama at the time before it got harder to find, they make me think more of Johnny's groups where you really need to try hard to get involved to hear all the news and rumours. The "ugly Korean eyes" Morning Musume post wasn't until 2010. I actually think Produce48 would've worked better with H!P but there's a few reasons why that wouldn't happen, "Korean eyes" just being one of them. Anybody remember some good H!P milk?

However, >>14977 anon wasn't wrong to say that ex-vk dudes may still have a hard time going back into society 'cause some of them are outcasts with no education and no professional experience besides playing in a band. But it's not always the case. Some dudes are just normal and have a normal life outside the band (talking about indiefags mostly, not those with a certain degree of fame)

Gackt's doing a few things lately, the newest one being writing the lyrics for a BoA single, is he officially finished with weird cryptocurrency business decisions and just sticking with music and TV again? I haven't heard about any reviews for the movie he was in, but I get the feeling he's attempting to have a notable year for his 20th solo year. He's never been gone for long enough to call it a comeback, but he definitely has periods of just completely phoning it in. I'd like to know if he still has real singing and writing skills like he did at one point, or if he's just lost it and just has a massive ego now. His talent downfall isn't as severe as Ayumi Hamasaki's but she's going deaf, what's his excuse? He's been an entertaining mess for a long, long time but I'd prefer it if he could still be fun to laugh at but also put out some decent content.

He's either buying instagram followers or is getting more interest lately, though. He's gained over 100k followers in about 6 weeks.

All these girls who reveal stuff about bandmen on tanuki usually have already broken up with them or don't care if they find out. On the other hand the ladies he's with probably want to stay, since afterall he's a pretty big fish.
But the biggest reason simply is, that at the height of their career the internet and therefore tanuki didn't exist yet, so his flings had no possibility to share their experiences. And nowadays he's said to only go after older women - too old to still gossip and brag about their conquests on the interent.

No. 22242

I think that's because vk gossip places like Tanuki etc. focus on more recent bands. There may have been tons of B-T gossip back in the day, but I doubt 80's bangya would venture on a vk gossip forum to spill it.
I remember reading that Sakurai doesn't really fuck younger women and that he turned many younger fans down. He must stick to women around his age.

Takemasa from Kiryu posted a video, adressing that he got married 2 years ago.
She was his fan (and mitsu), she's allegedly always first row and fans found out because she was bragging about rare items she had, so everybody got suspicious.
He pretty much said that it's not his fans business and that they should leave him alone, so the ones who did not shit on him for getting married are also angry, like "Why are you blaming us? We didn't do anything".

Lmaooo that made me roll my eyes so hard.

DDRM is one of the scummiest bands in the scene, literally no one can stand them and Yoshiatsu's antics are so infamous.

Pentagon aren't angels either, pretty sure they're kusomen too as I remember seeing Minpha's supposed dick pic he sent to a tsunagari. That was pretty early on in their career, too. I don't follow Sick2 closely but I remember reading something about them too very vaguely, I'd have to check out again.

UNiTE seems relatively chill and drama-free, true, but my favorite indiefag bandoman seems to dislike Yui, and I'm pretty sure there had been some unreported drama with EVE around the time Sana joined since they had broken up like one month earlier, so.

Either way, while there are definitely some chill bands out there, but sadly they're a minority, so I wouldn't go claiming the moral high ground on them unless you dig deep enough. These days indiefag drama doesn't gets reported nearly as often as it used to, you have to look up things for yourself.

I'm a old fan of W.

Ai was exiled for 15 years because of her underaged smoking and old man boyfriends scandals. She ruined a family because she shacked up with a man 30 years her senior as a minor. HP gave her another chance but she blew it when she got together with another old man and got caught smoking again. After she got kicked she went through a lot of ups and downs in her life, she tried to commit suicide multiple times, got into drugs and cults. She got pregnant randomly and married into an violent relationship, divorced and got pregnant again and remarried to a yaukuza member which ended terribly for her. I think her husband got arrested for fraud and other violent offenses, tried to restart her career as an idol but failed. Nozomi became a tarento and started her mission to repopulate Japan with her famous baseball player husband, throughout her career she stayed in touch with Ai and tried helping her out and because of Nozomi she was accepted back into HP after 15 damn years and was able to perform as W again with Nozomi at Hina fes 2019.

I honestly think it's just the culture of Japan in general right now. Pretty much every girl is an idol of some sort and it takes away the need to put yourself out there in order to stand out. The meaning of idol was changed by shitty akb and all the other flagship groups. People say Morning Musume was girl next door but during the golden era they at least had some kind of charm point. Akb changed that and went the quantity over quality route by just putting any random uggo in.
I feel like now HP definitely goes for the safer choices/girls they've already trained though which is crazy considering the most popular member right now is a rando from hokkaido.

KimuTaku and his horsefaced wife are currently pushing their daughter a ridiculous amount. That girl profits more from nepotism than the Jenners and the Hadids combined. At the age of just 15 (she's 16 now) she already won a best upcoming actress award (despite never having acted before kek), she's the official face of Bulgari, she was in a Chanel add and currently gets ripped into by by everybody for looking like the tiny japanese kid she really is in comparison to the normal models at a Chanel show.
She's probably the most hated person on girlschannel lately, there's no way she's gonna turn out sane after all of that. And they also put her into way too revealing clothes.

Ayumi Hamasaki can’t sing live for shit now though, partly not her fault because she really is losing her hearing now but also because even at her peak she had some rough performances.

Overseas tours are just cash grabs for their rich Japanese fans, that's why the VIPs always have early access to merch- every time I've managed to score a DEGVIP I see Japanese fand buying up multiples of everything first chance and dripping $200-500 at the table on merch. I read about some peolle not being able to get anything in any size but XL and up at a couple of shows because they got in the venue later than most of the crowd. They play small, open floor venues and don't set queues for tickets because they know what they're doing- The US tour is a gimmick for the Japanese fans to come buy out for the travel experience.

He said during a Q&A in the fall that he hates touring abroad because everyone is bigger than him ( he used the word dekai which can mean taller or larger bodied but foreign fans immediately decided he meant fat even though there are other words for that which he has used freely in the past), he can't understand the English or any other languages, and the food doesn't suit his palate. The only thing that he can eat is Mcdonalds. So he always stays on the tour bus or in the hotel room.
But, honestly, I was at that Q&A and he was being more self deprecating of his own faults and inability to acclimate to other cultures than denigrating towards Europe and Europeans.
He has said many times that he welcomes foreign fans for shows in Japan and is really happy when they come. He has also defended foreign fans when other people have tried to shit on them in interviews. Back in 2009-2010, when they were playing NYC, he brought out hot green tea at 3 in the morning to fans who camped out. He doesn't hate foreigners he just hates being outside his comfort zone and has a tendency to say shitty thoughtless things as a result.

Lmao. All the food in entire europe doesn't suit his majety's palate. Again, just imagine if somebody said that about Japan, or whole Asia.

You really sound exactly like Kareki, I've read that exact phrase a dozen times on her blog already.
Everybody is evil and little Kyo is the eternal victim. This is why the Diru fandom is shit, you can't criticise anything without being a "bad", not "true" fan - whether it's Kyo being a dick again, or the quality of their songs, or their questionable lyrics. There's probably not a single person on this earth who'd be considered good enough as by them, everybody is supposedly fake or too dumb to get the trve deep meaning.

I was a fan for years, but again and again heard about them being absolute dicks to about everybody, they and especially Kyo manage to sound like the most obnoxious, full of themselves people on the planet (despite him supposedly hating himself sooo much uwu), so that I really decided to quit liking them. Why should I or anybody else support human trash?

Buck-Tick are just as big as them, yet always stayed decent and humble towards their fans, interviewers etc (and as far as I know Atsush also isn't throwing weekly tantrums like Kyo does either…) Hell, even Yoshiki or Gackt seems more normal and charming than them and that means a lot lol

I saw one fan chase home down the street for a hug (she smelled really bad too… like she didn’t clean her vag before stepping out that night) then her group of friends proceeded to speak broken Japanese and tell me how “black” I am because I wasn’t running around saying “kawaii!”

>Buck-Tick are just as big as them, yet always stayed decent and humble towards their fans, interviewers
With this I'm confused. I'm not sure what basis of measurement you are using. If you are talking foreign tours, Buck-tick has never been as active as Dir or other acts. If you are talking about in Japan, I've never heard of either group members being rude to interviewers or fans. And I'm long time fan of both bands so I feel like I've read and translated a lot of their interviews. Ymmv I guess.
>>45366
>As long as you're chill, hygenic and polite they're actually not that bad.
Lol. Sometimes even if you aren't.
I still can never forget that Kyo personally came out at around 3 in the morning in NYC to hand out cups of hot green tea to idiots that were camped out for the next night's show because it was ridiculously cold in January. Not to mention when Japanese interviewers have tried to shit on the foreign fandom, he shut that down really fast. So imo he's mostly ok and hardly a "Japanese supremecist".
And Die and Toshiya are often downright friendly. Kaoru is nice too but a bit more aloof and Shinya is generally shy but polite. But they all hate doing the VIP stuff and don't pretend otherwise.

I don't think an artist, especially singer/composer has the obligation to treat their fans well especially if the fans in question are bat shit insane.

I saw Miyavi several years ago in the US and it was tons of fun, looking back now everyone was comparatively nice compared to other Jrock shows. I still think his MYV POPS albums is one of the best, its like a gallery of fun novelty songs and pop-rock stuff. I actually tried to find that era on youtube but the label removed the official vids on copyright claims and fan uploads seem scarce. Such a big change from back in the day, and its so weird to meet random normies around here who really love him now, do they know about the Galyuu, myv pops, or Miyavism albums?

It's not hard to meet other adults with similar interests, it's meeting people you vibe with who also have similar interests and since jmusic is niche, it's doubly hard to do as an adult because of work and life responsibilities taking priority.

The sudden change when his kid was born was what made me move away from MYV honestly. I get why he did it, and granted his style and music is much better now (imo) but it was the suddenness and the rapid change from uguu kawaii nyan pastel ADHD Miyavi to dadMiyavi was so weird. Only knowing of him as the spastic genki weirdo and then hearing his moodier music was odd.

I liked his music before too, just that now that I'm older as well and I don't get the same thrill from hyperactive pastel-kawaii stuff that I did 10 years ago in my early teens, so I guess his newer music appeals more to my adult tastes vs my younger weeb tastes.

They're definitely extremely similar, obviously Kaoru's work is inspired by this artist's style even if he won't ever admit it. Have DIR reached a point where in their jaded mediocrity they honestly think they can just rip off anyone outside Japan for money from their Japanese fans?

This is old and I'm sure you've gotten most of the milk by now but maybe someone else who reads this thread would be interested. Anyways, as we all know by now, a couple of girls from NGT48 were bullying Yamaguchi Maho quite a bit because she complained to management about them being out with the more unsavory type of fans and drinking with them. The girls didn't take kindly to that so they gave Maho's address to those guys who ended up assaulting her.
NGT has always had bullying rumors and one of the members even confirmed before the scandal on a variety show that a lot of the girls are mean to each other and talk about each other behind their backs. (Ironically enough she was called a liar by fans back then and got quite a bit of backlash lol)

The fans ended up figuring out who the girls were that gave Maho's address out and one of them basically outed herself by being a retard and posting pic related on her public instagram account instead of her private instagram account. The picture is of Maho's, and her other NGT friends who were also victims of bullying, graduation live (ie. their goodbye live before they left the group)
It reads:
"“Even though I’m doing my nails I want someone to change the channel.”"

People flipped their shit because of this whole situation and basically both NGT and AKB are widely hated now and the mayor of Niigata banned NGT from doing promotions for the city and cut all ties with them.

Yoshiki has been ghostwriting for bands for a decade now, TRAX was back in like 2008. Nobody really cares, it's so obvious when he's pushing a new band he's involved in bc he milks it for clout. IIRC Babymetal was also his idea.

He's loved the ides of an "International band" forever tbh, but it won't ever work unfortunately. He's just not realizing that any band or group that can be puppeteered that way is gonna have the passion and trend appeal to survive for long without being hilariously expensive to maintain. If Yoshiki wants to be involved in music again but with his own styles and songs, he should do like Titanic Sinclair did- find a mediocre non-ugly girl to be your avatar, market the shit out of her and make sure she's not talented or wealthy enough to go off solo.

Really he needs to have a press conference about X Japan, what is going on and if they ever plan to tour/play live/release music ever again. Obviously not, none of the other members seem worried about X at all and have their own new projects.

As for me, I'm mostly intrigued by the "gap" between his persona and his social circles, good guy who hangs with a bunch of creeps, etc. I've seen him called a creep and perv before but never heard any actual stories.

At least Atsushi only did it to look sexy, but whatever Kyo touches must be deep… He recently also did an interview there he said something along the lines of "being gay is ok" and now is fans worship him as lgbtq icon.

Jeez, I hate to be mean but that looks like a chubby 40yo aunty getting "dolled up" to go out with her girlfriends. He's not doing his daughters any favor by pushing them, everbody will only make fun of her. Kendall and the Hadids at least have the body and a somewhat pretty face but that girl is beyond plain.

The scripted Jap media covering Kokomi's debut is saying she looks like Shizuka lmao whereee? It looks like she got eyelid surgery, home girl really needs a reduction if she wants to look like Shizuka. I don't think she would get so much criticism if she started off with Seventeen mazagine or some other teen mag, her look is too average and boring to be the cover girl for Dior and Vogue.

Whoever Yoshiki is dating right now I should ask what do these women see on him? Like wtf, he's ugly looking, he has his ass in debt, he is like many other celebrities unable to live as a normal human being and what I noticed from all his girlfriends is that they have money. They are rich and they help him with connections and different jobs to keep him busy. Talk about being pathetic

From what I know his new girlfriend works in Arizona and California and that would explain him going to Sedona which is in the state of Arizona, most of the time. So maybe she has connections to get him to work for Disney+

He benefits from the women he dates and then tosses them like yesterday's garbage and moves on to the next.

Found this picture and I think that's Yoshiki's new girlfriend. She kinda looks like Atsushi Sakurai. Guess Yoshiki hasn't gone over the romance he had with Sakurai back in the day. I think I read sometging about the 2 being together in the 90s before atsushis first marriage.

I read on a thread that YOSHIKI is broke because he owes the Talks a around 100 to 150 md. Rumors have been strong about this so who knows and there's no way in hell a guy like him can come up with that money specially at his age. What I also read is that the Russian girl's named Natasha and she lives in a luxurious life in HK. Her father supposedly is helping yoshiki out with his debt, but him and Natasha have nothing besides acting like attention whores. He has an actual gf in California that he doesn't speak about but she is a model and she might be the face behind Red Swans poster. We know how he likes to date every model that crosses his way.

No. 109266

Klaha is dead af and Kamijo is remarried i think. There was a rumor of him being married but his wife passed away during lareines times.


That's so strange. I live in Sedona at the reservation where yoshiki comes and visits and I do feel like I've seen this girl with him but very low key. I was gonna laugh and call bullshit but no, im sure I've seen her with him.

I think I saw somewhere Klaha was married and had kids and other pages say that he was an etiquette instructor in NYC. And I always thought that yoshiki never took relationships seriously just take a look at how young his gfs are. It's disgusting. I doubt he's having an affair with a Russian girl and it's more likely he's got the actual girlfriend away from media. It's what they should do anyway keep quiet about everything and seek for retirement.

I do wonder how much of the gackt & hyde rumors were caused by wishful fujochans (anyone remember those godawful cringy photoshopped edits of them kissing? picrelated lmao) and how much was legit. I think it was obviously somewhat legit from one side but I don't think I ever saw anything that indicated hyde reciprocated at all. He did put up with a lotta gaey interactions from gackt but I think he might have gone along with it just to placate his fans.

On the other hand, I recall gackt doing basically everything but full on announcing his desire to buttfuck him so. There's this one gif from behind the scenes of moonchild where they were just talking (with gackt seated and hyde standing facing him) where gackt grabbed hyde's hips with both hands and readjusted his stance manually. Also those interviews for the movie where he kept repeating that if Hyde was a woman he would marry him or that he would be his dream girl or some shit lmfao. And, granted this was not hyde, but there was another outtake from behind the scenes of that movie where another male actor was lying down on the beach at night after filming and like tripped gackt and pulled him onto him in a straddling position while rolling around and squeezing his ass. I think that was played of as some "haha look how silly they are" moment but uhhh… just bros being bros?

What's so weird about him, imo, is that you would think if he was trying to keep himself closeted he'd have refrained from all the blatantly homosexual things he's said and done throughout the years. Like he's always talked about liking to make out with men and how his friends and him "kiss all the time" and used to answer questions about if he was into men with "I like women AND men". It seems like over the years he's switched from not giving a shit if people think he's bi or gay to constantly justifying his gay-seeming actions (hanging out naked with his friends, etc) by saying he's just trying to teach other men how to be "manly".

It's like he's regressed backwards into a closet he wasn't even bothering to stay inside of at the start, picrelated. Very strange.

This is because, if you go on any of his official channels and read comments, theyre 3/5ths asslicking idol worship, and now 2/5ths criticism about the lack of album, X activity involving other members, and him using the X Japan name and fame to push his other side projects, like this new photobook and his classical tours.

He's outlasting his star power, trying to use his old name to stay afloat but it's falling apart now that his youngest fans are aging out of his bullshit, and he's too old and has been too irrelevant for too long to try rebooting the cycle. People are sick of his money-grubbing bullshit.

I know that I'm super late but does anybody find this weird? Atsushi might be nice on camera but he's also a cheater and very likely did not raise his eldest son. But now, nearly 30 years later, when said child got some fame as well, he suddenly decides to not only go public, but to do a shoot/interview together with him? Of course celebrities aren't obliged to show their kids but this kind of leaves a bitter taste, as if he's only acknowledging because of his success.

I won't comment on what kind of person he may be in private, but it's very common for Japanese celebrities to keep their private life secret and not show their children. They take privacy very seriously. If his son is now in the public spotlight there's no need for that however. I think you're reading far too into it, especially considering his son is a nobody compared to him, so if anything he's helping his son out. Apparently his son's books sold out everywhere after this reveal, if Japanese comments in relevant articles are to be believed.

Imagine thirsting after a nearly 60 year old washed up Jrocker who pretends to be rich bc you think he still has clout, but ends up using you/your network to help himself get scraps of "work". The best part is how he's obvious about all these women and none of them aeem to mind. Given the skintight leather pants he used to love wearing and hia voyeurism, we already know his dick isn't that big, so I can't imagine why they do it.

From dating rich girls, having them at his convenience to still cry about Hide and pretty much selling his sadness to the world so everyone can see him as a life example, Yoshiki can't and won't do much from now on. From what I'm reading He's using the Maria girl for his activities in California but I'm sure once he can he will go to HK to visit the other girl. That's gross and the sickest part of it is that they might be ok with it. Guess he wanted one last thrill before realizing he got old and hes unnecessary. And we all know he's got a small dick, so it's not that he's chased by young girls because of that. He's got many physical conditions to deal with clearly, I bet he can't even move in bed anymore and they have to do all the work. I just cant imagine someone standing by his side through all his bullshit other than just saying they dated a half way decent musician

I saw the New Lex Tokyo was mentioned in the previous thread and was wondering if anyone had any info on that place. Yoshiki seems to hang out there a lot and is friends with the owner Taka Masuda. If you look on Taka's instagram, there are always pretty famous Western celebrities hanging out there, especially big names in the rock music scene. To me, the club looks below average, small, and isn't decorated particularly nice. Why do these celebs always go? Their other gimmick is the models in attendance who all appear to be Eastern European, Russian, and American, not famous (usually around 1000 instagram followers), and barely legal, if legal at all. I'm guessing they're just atmosphere models who are getting paid to be there, but if it's something sleazier I wouldn't be surprised either.

No. 117761

I've been dying to see a thread like this and I'm so glad I found it. Here's the the thing my dear nonnies: From what I know ToshI is broke because of the cult story everyone knows about. He was in debt up to his ass when he got out and went back to Yoshiki to reunite X and we all know how that turned out. The thing with this is that I read ToshI asked Yoshiki for millions of dollars to help him from being broke. Yoshiki lends him that money and that's how he's been broke from years ago. Of you pay attention Toshi is the one doing great while Yoshiki pretends to be doing as great as he used to. If yoshiki wasn't broke, he would have been somewhat out of the public eye. That's what I think anyway.

Yes he is in fact in a relationship with Maria but she uses a lot of names to get herself out there just like Yoshiki. There's not much on her other than being young and a self made millionaire in California and they are engaged. Also I think she was supposed to be in the MV for Fake Divine and ended up dropping that MV to do the photoshoot of Red Swan. I understand that Natasha is a young millionaire too in HK but she's wealthy because of her father who has businesses directly with Yoshiki so they do have to see each other. I believe Yoshiki owes money to Natashas father and that's why they make a big deal about the dog. Teale is just a hooker, she can be paid to be in parties and make appearances with other "celebrities". Marilyn Manson used to rent her too.

I don't know about the Yakuza stuff with Toshi, but I did know Mana and Klaha had some things going on with them back in the day, that's why Mana helped Klaha with paperwork to start a new life supposedly in the US (not confirmed tho)

Lol, Yoshiki has been engaged half a dozen times in the laat 2 decades, besides, Natasha owns him and I doubt would let him marry another rich girl if her daddy is helping keep him afloat and paying for their HK place. Without music, Yoshiki is just a reverse starfucker.

It's just disgusting to see that bottom line, Yoshiki is in need of someone to take care of his finances. Yes, Natasha might be one of his hoes but the other rich bitch looks to be the brains behind the new Yoshiki activities and keeping him somewhat relevant. We all know he will do anything to maintain that status even if it means kissing ass to young girls. One of them owns him until he pays back and the other is necessary for his fucking career.

I didn't think I'd be getting a response so quick. OK, all I know is that this Maria chick got rich over investing. Like I read on the comments she's a model, author and does well on the stock market. She keeps a very low profile with different names like Yoshiki. She's the person he sees in LA, Sedona and other places like San Francisco where he loves to go. I don't know much about her activities? But I wouldn't doubt she's been saving him from bankruptcy these past few years.

On the other hand, Natasha is an insta model, a daddy's girl and an attention whore. She loves taking pictures right next to the places hes been at. It's ridiculous. I don't know if she does anything other than her father lending yoshiki money and being an attention whore tho.

I read the comments up and saw that one of you said Maria looks like Atsushi Sakurai and him and Yoshiki had a romance? This has nothing to do with it but I wouldn't doubt it. Especially because we all know Yoshiki at least had a hand full of bfs out there, but I just laugh that he has a certain type when it comes to women just like with Julia Voth.

I'm not sure when they started, but Yoshiki and Julia Voth were engaged until 2010 and then he went on to date Katie Hill until 2014, he dated a Canadian model up until 2016 (he said it himself on a Q&A on Reddit, I think her name was Sarah) and then in 2017 he got with this new girl Maria and got engaged. I'm not really sure why Natasha would call herself his wife back in the day, maybe because they were seeing each other on and off or doing business since. All I know is that Yoshiki owes her father a lot of money and the whole situation is just so fishy…

No. 118637

>>118552
If he's been with Maria since 2017, why has he waited until now to start doing anything again? 3 years is a long time to be engaged to someone without actually doing anything, and he can't even use Covid as an excuse. It sounds more like some girl met and worked Yoshiki well enough to make money "investing" via his network and is now paying him back by helping him work?

No. 118831

I have to say that is a very good thought, which I wouldn't doubt. Even Hizaki and Teru talked about her in some posts, my guess is that she's more involved in VK than some.

What does Lindsay being Manson's wife have to do with her thirsting over Yoshiki? Also, what 20-something makes millions in LA via "investing" without some kind of shady shit or handout? Nobody. And she's involved with Disney and knows a bunch of old fart Jrockers? Rich daddy, for sure. Yoshiki has always been a spoiled brat curating an image and he goes for the same type of women, which is why his GFs are always young, pretty, and love to bait his fans with clues on social media. Maybe of he hadn't been such a colossal asshole in his heyday, he could get some help from his peers instead of having to fall so low as to becoming an almost 60 year old escort for rich, insecure 20-somethings.

OK, on Malice Mizer it's so complicated when it comes to Mana and Klaha. I believe (personal belief from what I've read) Klaha is not dead. He's somewhere in the US or Japan. Read me out, a person doesn't just disappear all of the sudden and most importantly no person is impossible to find unless the name was dropped, changed or Masaki Haruna was never his actual name to begin with.
I find it hard to believe that Mana tried to find him and just dropped the possibility after getting a "no, he's nowhere to be found" just like that. It's easy to cover up or disappear in Japan and Mana would be the only one to know how to do these things. Klaha just doesn't want to be found and I'm convinced Mana knows this and that's why he "tried" looking for him but gave up very soon after.

Malice Mizer is just a band with mellow members, there's nothing more on them that I know of other than the Klaha stuff because they're all so chill.

I read on the comments that one of you said something about Kamijo? What I know is that he has a daughter the same age as Luna Artemis (sugizos daughter for those who don't know) living in California and she wants nothing to do with him, she resents him and he's in a relationship if not already married by this point too I guess. At first I thought he was in a relationship with this Maria girl because Teru and Hizaki had talked something about her, they don't seem to like her. But going back to Kamijo I guess the rumor of him being married and losing his wife to cancer might be true, thanks to his daughter not wanting anything to do with him. Or could be his attitude too, he's not the most likeable guy out there.

Also worth noting for the Maria anon, if she was married or engaged to Yoshiki since 2017 I doubt she would wait until now to start dropping rumors about being with him, considering Natasha has been seen and photographed with him in LA since then, including this year pre-Covid. I think Yoshiki and Maria are a new fling for personal gain for the both of them, and one or both of them needs it to look more legitimate and less transactional and obvious.

Why do you think Maria had had him all to herself fpr the last 3 years when the OP pic is of Yoshiki and Natasha at Manson's birthday last year, and there are pics of her at the previous year's party with him too? Also, he still does his Xx thing, and makes posts about missing his dog and Hong Kong.

It's more likely this Maria used some of her secret nepotism or casting couch money and connections to help Yoshiki get work, expecting popularity in return within certain circles as his new side hoe. Too bad he has an almost decade long pattern of posting for Natasha, and there's tons of evidence of her being with him for a long time uo to now. Maria, on the other hand, is a literal who that is only affiliated with Yoshiki here on lolcow. And, if the YT thing was cancelled because of this thread, it's more likely to avoid proof of him being associated with her. Maria seems like the girl who can't take a hint, and wants to use the favors he fucked out of her to blackmail any attention she can out of his circles and fangirls.

>Teale and Lindsey react weird after something compromising about them is shared here?

What about them commenting on his IG is compromising?? Plus they started again after he cancelled the project Maria made possible for him to pay his friends for, so I just think maybe he would rather be broke than follow MM, JC and other unlucky fucks down the psycho-blackmailing-groupiewife hole. No young hoe is worth an entire career just because she wants attention she doesn't deserve, after all.

I think Gackt is a seriously underrated cow. Even just a few years ago he probably could have had his own thread, that’s how much insane shit he was doing on the regular. My favorite era was around the time where he went to hang out with the prince of dubai in a literal bowl cut, was posting his ass on Instagram twice a week, released a strippable body pillow of himself, and was selling empty bottles of cologne he had already used for like thousands of dollars all while his interpersonal relationships were falling apart with his friends of 20 years and tabloids were kicking the shit out of him. Top quality milk.

Most of the tabloid stories were ridiculous, but there’s one that I now believe 100%. Back when his longtime friendship with YOU crumbled, tabloids started rumors that YOU had actually been his ghost writer for his entire solo career. Not only is it plausible since the timeline matches, (they were already very close friends in the late 90s), but ever since they parted ways? Guess who stopped putting out new music.

In the year or two after that happened, he farted out a couple really bad and uninspired songs which felt totally different even from the increasingly mediocre stuff he’d been doing in the years before. Seems like maybe they were some unfinished reject songs that YOU left behind from the years they worked together that he tried to spruce up and release. And now that he has no more to pull from, he’s quit music entirely. IMO the timing is too suspicious to be a coincidence. Talk about lame— his early songwriting was pretty much the only respectable thing about him and turns out that was all a ruse. What an insane career.

Old milk but I cyber stalk Aiko and the more I know, more i think i think she and Toshiya never really dated but since she is famous Toshiya probably saw her as a glorified sexfriend. She is notoriously known groupie but still maintain her popularity over her simps. She also slept with a whole lot others band guys like kirito and she actually wanted kyo(lol) but since kyo is only into alt girls he probably thought she was boring and told her to fuck off. Toshiya was the second choice and like die(whose recently got coronarolled-rest in pieces) he is not picky at all. But she admitted in the beginning of the last year she actually got a serious boyfriend. Also This type of woman probably will marry a rich and famous pastel celebrity when she retires while Toshiya will probably marry a former hostess like most of his peers.

This will be my last entry here.I can assure you I am not Maria but someone closer to home, if I was i wouldn't be writing this. The crazy part about everything is that she loves him. She loves that piece of shit and i feel sorry for her. This is the one place where I don't have to reveal anything if I didn't want to and I figured since not many people know about her I would come forward about Yoshiki. I am tired of being a piece in his game but I now have nothing to lose as of January 1st. I am free of his blackmailing and everyone who hangs out with him, because in one way or another they are victims. I am the only one who can tell you the truth even though he's tried to silenced everyone around him. When i tried to file a complain about his behavior to the police they didn't do anything. I am not telling you or asking to believe me, you don't have to. By reading me you're doing more than enough. All I have to say is that those 2 together and I hope she gets out of there soon, because while she works hes whoring around in parties. As of January 1st Toshi has paid his debt and has removed any trace of X Japan from his social media. Toshi has raped women and in some ways Yoshiki manipulates them to be quiet too, this is exactly what happened to me. Thank you guys for reading me if you did and don't hold them dear to you, they are worse and more sadistic that you could ever imagine. I may not be able to come back to this thread anymore but there's so much that you don't know about X, like the killings, rapes, violence and so much I'm saving because unfortunately not even I can prove it, I just overheard some talking between Brian and Y. They talked about a priestess in the TST too but I don't know what that means to them. Спокойной ночи

Yoshiki released Under the Sky recently amid all the Marilyn Manson drama unfolding, and on his insta he's been posting selfies with depressive captions about waiting for shit to blow over. It seems like he was gearing up for some new project until the Manson shit started getting real, and he and Manson have been close friends for decades (even hide was good friends with Manson, apparently which is weird af).

What are the odds of the MM drama coming back to Yoshiki? It's becoming more apparent that those in Manson's circles enabled him for years, so I wonder who else will be dragged down with him as the drama plays out. I've been trying to follow the MM threads but they all turned into instagram a-logs of the victims andntheir claims & icbf to trawl it all for the few nuggets of actual relevance to MM.

Pic related, dysphonia is defines as "Difficulty talking, including hoarseness and change in pitch or quality or voice" and is regarded as incurable.

Idk, I could buy it. Obviously they started out closer than they have become over the years— it makes sense to me that at the beginning the partnership was more enthusiastic, fame was newer, and YOU was churning out material. Then as the years went on and they started to grow apart, the material dried up.

Don’t you think that it’s weird that when YOU and gackt had their big falling out in 2014, that was also around the time that gackt dropped all pretense of being primarily a musician and went full time retard with the poker shit and cryptocurrency and instagram whoring to stay relevant?

That could be the case but the same could also just as easily describe Gackt without a ghostwriter.

Damn…
I was always his fan despite him being cringe for years because young Gackt was simply amazing but recently I watched his interview with Joey and in English he sounded so insufferable that I was ready to drop him…and now I start feeling sorry for him again kek

I dont think his childhood illness is true but rather years of singing visual kei style (like the aforementioned overuse of vibrato) destroyed his voice. When he was young his voice was very calm and deep but in recent years he sounded more and more faggy. And doesn't Yasu of Janne da Arc have the some condition? Voice so damaged that he has to relearn how to talk and might never ever be able to sing again?
And did he say he goes back overseas, meaning Malaysia or somewhere to get treatment…? I'm sorry but that doesn't sound like a good idea, he's so rich, he should get himself the best doctors in Japan or Europe…

>>159667
The earlier ones during his peak were likely written by You. But he probably had more than one ghostwriter and that's why there isn't a clear break when his songs started getting shitty. Plus his horrible midlife crisis might have lead him to composing/paying people to compose ugly songs.
I remember that when the rumors came out all japanese comments said that it was so obvious that Gackt would have never been able to write the songs during the end of Malice Mizer/the beginning of his solo career, which were by far the best, like Le Ciel and Mizerable.

No. 160823

>>160412
I think a lot of fans are emotionally attached to young Gackt and just kind of tolerate current Gackt.

I do feel like most of his early stuff was written by the same person because there's a certain signature sound, the kind of melodic DNA that makes people say "this sounds like a Sia song". I'm not actually too familiar with vkei but unless that signature sound appeared elsewhere in the scene, it makes sense that most of the songs were written by one writer, either You or Gackt.

Anyone else get the feeling Miyavi is fucking around with Dollyave, the random photog girl from LA he has touring with him in North America right now? I hesitate to even post this, but it's gettinf more and more weird. m

Most of his IG posts from the tour that aren't promo shots are selfies of him taken by her, or him posting random stuff and tagging her calling her "baby", "baby girl", and "baby D". He also previously captioned a clip of her singing awkwardly on stage with a cringey caption calling her baby girl, thanking her for "staying pure, positive and crazy".

I looked her up, she has less than 5K followers and her account isn't that old, and I didn't find but one post about her singing before this tour from a few months before in NY. He also doesn't post the other girl, Sintamusic, who supposedly got Dollyave on the tour nearly as much as he posts Dollyave, and when he does the captions aren't nearly as sugary.

The entire thing just makes me quirk an eyebrow tbh. Really odd behavior for a married father of 3 who just had another baby.

I'll admit this started as a tinfoil, but no shit since I posted this there has been a noticable change in Miyavi's posts since and he's suddenly stopped putting Dollyave on a pedestal for nothing and now suddenly she's a musician and they have another photog.

Clearly his wife is just along for whatever ride she can get, but acting like this over a 25 year old groupie all over IG and making it so obvious has gotta be insulting.

Here it says Yung_spielberg wrote it, one of Miyavi's team. Samfreakingli, another Miyavi staffer, apparently made the video. For what it's worth, this isn't a new video or song either- earlier while grabbing screencaps I saw a clip of it from August on someone else's account, but now I can't find the account or remember the name. I'm not sure if it was the guy in the video with her or not, bc she went back and tagged a bunch of Miyavi's crew in the video.

So, she suddenly has a music career that kicked off right before this tour, and is all made and promoted by Miyavi's team even though she was supposed to be a tour photographer. I guess being a groupie really does pay off these days?

He didn't interact with Dollyave at all at the show I attended, but Gaby left the side of the stage to go up and sing with him, during Perfect Storm I think. Dolly wasn't really that memorable at all so it's funny seeing how much he posts of her online kek.

Probably bc from what I'm seeing, Sintas is an actual musician/performer, while Dolly is just her awkward friend tagging along while the crew tries to push this persona on her as a hard working girlboss as well as an uwu kawaii. Problem is, she hasn't done really anything the entire tour except awkwardly sing while visibly uncomfortable, take social media tier pics hanging out with Miyavi and post outfit selfies with Sinta. She's a groupie, nobody would foot the cost of her traveling with them unless she was.

To me, Dolly feels like a ripoff of 2012-2015 Ariana Grande when she was trying to put herself on a pedestal while also trying to come across as timid and humble.

Looking back, both Dolly and Sintas worked with that Richaedfrias guy, so it looks like Sintas got Dolly on the tour by somehow being affiliated with the guy who helped Miyavi do those Covid virtual lives a while ago.

They both just seem so random and added on, neither of them have music like Miyavi's and lowkey I get massive subverted egirl/pickme vibes from their IG and Twitter, not to mention the egirl uniform "tour outfits".

Miyavi reposted the Montreal show pics again, and there haven't been any show pics posted of NYC or DC since this was posted, just reposts of the Montreal pics and clips from Miyavi's signing booth at AWA. He also hasn't posted Dolly directly since then, and she hasn't been posting at all really.

Tinfoil, but the thought of someone in Miyavi's camp reading lolcow is hilarious, I just have to say.

They've only been reposting fan accounts that took pics during the shows, it's like they want to get the tour over with as quietly as possible now.

Funny, because last June I got an IG DM from a "private" Miyavi account claiming he was going on tour near the end of 2021 and was looking for fans to see what they thought of his movies and "carry them along in (his) career". I blew it off bc he kept demanding my personal info like my address ans phone #, but now in hindsight everything the "Miyavi" account said would happen this year did happen, like for example back in 2020 when I was messaging him he said he was working on a movie, then Kate came out this year. He also gave me an email to chat on Hangouts with and tried to do voice and video calls to "prove" himself but all I ever got was a black screen and random bg noise. I blocked him when he got mad that I wouldn't give him my info and called me a racist (wtf?).

I thought it was a fun concert. Lots of good energy and a good crowd. The venue was pretty small but didn’t sell out I think, and tickets were relatively cheap (~$50 after tax) which is one of the main reasons why I went. It wasn’t super crowded but there was still quite a lot of people there. Dolly was honestly a pretty forgettable person, although I remember I thought her pigtails were cute. Like I said above, Gaby and Miyavi had good stage chemistry, she seemed a lot more outgoing and happy on stage compared to Dolly, and I think Gaby looks much better in person than in photos. Miyavi did go on and on about all the stuff he was doing, which is fine since it’s his concerts and I’m sure more dedicated fans than me would care to hear, but I was like “ok I’m a bit tired of this” after a while, and then he also brought him visiting refugee camps and *~*~the power of music~*~* which I just find cringey but do you, Miyavi. He also played somewhere over the rainbow during the encore kek.

Agree, which is why it's even more cringe that the Miyavi press IG keeps posting Dolly while claiming she had the same energy on stage as Gaby. The photogs they tagged into the last few shows all say the opposite of every concert report I've read, makong it sound likenthey both had bigger roles than they did when really Gaby was the fun one and Dolly was just kinda there.

I am kinda curious though how a literal who from Wisconsin goes from nothing to touring as a photog for Miyavi to being a "backup singer" that quickly and artificially. I read in old threads from Tanuki that Miyavi has a long time habit of cheating on his wife on tour, but I always heard it was with white women. Yoshiki was liking all Miyavi's early NA tour pics featuring the girls, but also stopped when Miyavi's thirstposting was called out. Going back they've been in pics from the start of the tour, but nowhere did it ever have them listed as part of the show, they just popped up on the tour. Has he had backup singers like this before, or is IG trolling for tour extras going to become a thing I wonder?

Also nitpick, but I don't think Dolly really dresses like that, almost all her outfits for the tour were big on her which is funny since many of them are supposed to be tight. If you go back and watch the "tour outfits" video at least half the outfits fit her loosely. Even in the pic here you can see Gaby is a bit thicker than Dolly, so they're probably all her clothes.

11/6 is when that new Netflix show thing he's doing comes out. Dolly stayed in ATL to shoot a Kimbra show but is back in LA, Miyavi went to the Gucci love parade last night and posted a vid of it less than 30 minutes before Dolly posted being back in LA.

I found an IG account dedicated to exposing a ton of Yoshiki fakes doing the same thing, @For_Yoshiki_Attention, and one of the posts says one of the fake Yoshikis knew about stuff real Yoshiki actually ended up doing, and told her before real Yoshiki posted them anywhere.

Comments on the pics from other fans say they got IG DMs from fake Sugizo accounts as well. Real Yoshiki posted a note denying any private accounts but said nothing else, which is weird considering real Yoshiki is usually very open about exposing that type thing himself.

Apparently, ton of Jrock fans on IG have been getting messages from fake private IG accounts that know shit about Jrocker activities before they're announced, and they all ask for money of course. The @For_Yoshiki_Attention IG claims 5 fans have killed themselves over it so far, making it stranger that Yoshiki isn't really saying anything. Some other fakes I've seen mentioned in comments are Kyo, Shinya, Toshi, and of course Miyavi- there are even several accounts up on IG right now with identical bios to the fakes that have been reported many times by many people, but don't get deleted.

She took those dates out but I got caps, lel. I find it very sus that Miyavi goes quiet the very same hour she lands in LA and takes those dates out of her bio (after being active pretty much nonstop while she was still in NY and ATL), on top of their behavior during the tour and her "the best is yet to come" "tour gift" bracelet from someone unnamed.

It really does look like Miyavi is fucking with Dollyave, in a very sloppy way, but what I can't figure out is if it ties into the private IG scam accounts. Dolly popped up suddenly out of nowhere on social media and on the tour around the same time the scams started happening, and especially this part stands out

>Funny, because last June I got an IG DM from a "private" Miyavi account claiming he was going on tour near the end of 2021 and was looking for fans to see what they thought of his movies and "carry them along in (his) career".


That sounds like Dollyave got lucky on IG bc maybe a few of them really did get that desperate during lockdown? A lot of celebs did a lot of stupid shit online because of it. Like, maybe the scams are happening so much because the artists are actually using IG to scout for girls due to lockdown? Nigerian scammers shouldn't know what Japanese artists are up to before they announce anything.

I don't think Dolly really shot the Kimbra show in ATL, there weren't any pics of her actually there so for all we know she could've claimed pics taken by someone else were taken by her in ATL while Dolly was in LA with Miyavi- except for those random ATL Kimbra show pics Dolly has been MIA since the end of tour. Kimbra hasn't posted in a few days so Dolly's ATL show pics are supposedly the most recent pocs of her, but it's also interesting to point out that Miyavi didn't start liking Kimbra's pics until October 24th. Maybe Miyavi asked Kimbra to pretend Dolly was in ATL with her still while he fucked around with her in LA before flying back to Japan.

Idk if Kimbra is in LA right now or not, but Miyavi is flying back to Japan talking about toasting something random, It'll be interesting to see if Dolly posts pics in LA or Japan moving forward.

Kimbra is in DC as Miyavi lands in Japan, she keeps posting tagging Dolly but there are no pics of her in the shots. Kimbra's tour posts seem focused on tagging Dollyave in pics she isn't in with big letters while Dolly herself stays silent since landing in LA the other day.

However, Miyavi posted a shot of him in a cab with a woman you can't clearly see that could very well be Dolly with her hair up from behind.

Actually, it's a house. And, if you go back, there's no mention of the guy she tagged in the stories she posted before all this, so probably he'll never be seen again and is a convenient excuse for Dolly having a big new apartment in LA above her own means right after being Miyavi's groupie.

Also funny how she even says she was on tour "not as a photographer" yet before the posts here began claiming the Miyavi fake was confronted about the tour, they were tagging her as such and there was no other mention of her as a singer or dancer. Plus, look at the guy's face in picrel.

If you go watch the show footage of the 3 of them on stage, the way he posts about the tour is way ottt compared to the lack of enthusiasm on stage from the girl and the lack of interaction from the crowds. The Miyavi staff page recently posted a bunch of clips of Miyavi on stage with the girls and literally all they do is stand there singing along intil he headbangs, then they pump their fists. It looks like he had way more fun on tour in NA with these girls than his fans did at the shows, and like he used it as an excuse to be on tour with them away from his wife and kids.

A SD would explain the sudden BF from nowhere and how she's moving into a new house after popping up on tour with Miyavi, when before she was a broke nobody with no online presence or following. 5 years working multiple jobs trying to make a game, then suddenly your gf tours with a star unnanounced and comes back to a lifestyle upgrade.

Where is Melody??? She hasn't posted since October 26th, 2 days after her comments asking her husband to marry her where he replied "lol".

It would alao explan this poor man's face- this is notbwhat a happy BF and GF posting about their first home should look like, but I guess being a beard for a groupie turned "artist" beats struggling for another 5 years to make your own dreams come true legitimately.

I doubt this is her BF, she's thinner now than she was in this pic, so she probably has a new house to herself in LA. Plus, that man is visibly uncomfortable, no way he's her BF.

Anon, I'm late but I think >>160823 said it best:
>I think a lot of fans are emotionally attached to young Gackt (and find it hard to let go)

His early career was really great and inspiring for me as well. I loved his cohesive aesthetic and musical style, and back then he was retaining enough of his pre-fame humanity to have genuine charm and relatability in his interactions.

But that time is dead and buried under his tax evader mansion in Malaysia. He's metamorphized into an eerie, plastic zombie who doesn't even know how to act or speak like a human anymore. I think that's what happens when you're a narc by nature, coast by on easy fame (ghostwriter[s] and style directors laying out his artistic moves for him during his prime) and only surround yourself with yes-men for 20 years.

Gackt at his core has always been just a performer and he did it well for many years. But being left to simmer in his own nature for so long has rotted him into the talentless sleazebag he is now.

I'd personally love to know who was behind his style and music in his early career just to see their other work.

More damage control, looks like Richard Frias is gonna try to pretend to be Dolly's main pusher now that Myv is in quarantine in Japan. She strikes me more as a follower than a creative leadwr though, she really sprang up suddenly out of nowhere with very little but big connections and leveled up pretty well just from taking selfies of and drinking with Miyavi, only to go back to doing nothing.

There are a million celebs out there who take on vanity projects and spout bullshit publicity garble for something entirely unrelated (perfume, booze, skincare, clothes, makeup). If I could get paid millions to blather on about how a new eyeshadow palette was actually a reflection of my inner strength I'd do it. It's unlikely he had much of a hand in creating any of this, from the sake which was produced by the brewery to the ad campaign by his marketing team. He posted the translation of a fully polished advertisement, I really doubt the words were directly from him.

He liked this one, which is kinda interesting because of how on the nose it is: Dolly's name is Tracy, and Miyavi likes to go by Lee. See the L+T white heart above where Miyavi sprayed the tour logo in the color he's holding? Dolly is spraying the white can so people know she put it there.

Guess again.

I've NEVER seen an artist go this hard for a basic photog girl and her friend before. Not even 3 months after the tour he makesnup this show just to give them something to do? They weren't even a big part of his tour, they wete very clearly just there for his entertainment and being given an excuse, which is fine, but it's getting annoying how hard he's pushing these unremarkable girls just to spend time with Dolly in a very obvious way, while trying vainly to hide behind Richard Frias and pretend it's mostly him.

No idea who these girlies are but every vk fan always praised Miyavi for being an uwu perfect dad while he was always sus to me. Sugizo, Hyde and BT have kids too but actually keep them private and safe. And crazies like Yoshiki and Gackt are at least reasonable enough to neither marry nor reproduce.

As for Miyavi, his wholesomeness has always felt like a coverup for something else. He feels like a small town church-going dad of 3 with a good reputation hiding a dark secret.

He also went back and removed all tags of Yukibomb, the girl he took to the Gucci love parade. The story is she did his makeup, but she hardly posted during the tour and I know he tagged her in ateast 2 pics from September as the photog, bc that's what promoted me to wonder why Dollyabe wasn't taking the pics as a "photographer". After the posts here, Miyavi untagged Yukibomb until the Gucci parade and posted a stiff comment abt her being professional. Yukibomb also posted a selfie claiming to have been busy in NY for fashion week the entire time, but I distinctly remember him tagging her with the camera emoji in 2 concert posts. Going back ofc they're gone now, but Miyavi forgot he liked only 2 of her selfies back in August before the tour ever started.

So, as soon as this tourwhore thing was brought up, Yukibomn went from being the MYV Imaginary tour makeup artist to not even being there, until she popped up in LA at the Gucci parade with him. My guess is Yukibomb isn't just another literal who like Dolly and Gaby and she couldn't afford to be associated with whatever ends up coming out in the end.

The GLP post.

Also has anyone else felt a chance in Miyavi's energy since this shit? He went from being way OTT happy to ne on tour with Yuki, Dolly and Gaby to looking kinda depressed in his recent stories. That, plus the sudden, random Hawaii shows with Gaby and Dolly feel like he used the Imaginary tour to fuck a handful of 20-something Asian girls he met on IG when Yoshiki was also liking their pics alongside him. Remember Yoshiki was liking all of Miyavi's OTT sugary Dollyposts until shit started getting posted here. Yoshiki also unfollowed Yukibomb but I'm taking soooo many SS and losing track of shit by now bc there's so much, I can't find a cap of it so all I have for this one is my word.

Miyavi has always been sus. His pre-marriage image was cringey as hell with the assburger behavior like rocking back and forth randomly and the weird twitchy poses. I remember the blog post he made announcing it, he sounded pissed as hell about it all and said something along the lines of him not wanting things to go that way but making the best of it and some anger at an implication that he was hiding it from his fans. Remember, Miyavi and Melody met when he was a guest on her show amd she immediately got pregnant, then only 5 months later "Airi" was born. Her name kanji is literally "the reason for love".

Derp, let me finish my thought- I think Miyavi has had a habit of fucking around for a lomg time & Melody used itnto her advantage to secure the bag. Having another baby this year so far apart in age from the other two with barely any mention of the pregnancy beforehand, and her inducing on her birthday seems like she wanted to secure those child support payments after the girls age out, and making sure he can't forget her birthday bc it's the same as his son's.

If Miyavi was trolling IG for tourwhores in summer of 2020, that's around the same timeframe that Melody would've had to get pregnant. Maybe they made a deal- she gets another baby and he can fuck around as long as it's not in Japan.

Check out the first post by Sinta that Miyavi liked before she joined the tour.

Alao notice that before joining Miyavi on tour Gaby and Dolly both dressed completely differently and didn't have blonde in their hair. This feels like he's trying to use these girls as a standin for someone else and show them off, but it all looks hella trashy and sus.

Why is a married 40 year old Japanese man acting like this so obviously? Is nobody on his team aware of how this all looks? If anything, ot looks like the 3 of them are all cranking it up to 10 on purpose while Melody is still MIA.

Also interesting- immediately after the tour Dolly got a house in LA, and Gaby moved from NY to LA where she is now with Dolly.

Sinta chanhed her whole IG, she took out all her links and bio and changer her name from Sintasmusic to Sintahoney, and she dyed her hair platinum blonde at the same time as Yukibomb as well.

Dolly and Yukibomb both went to the Arcane release party in LA but didn't tag each other or mention each other at all despite both being there to "support Miyavi", and Sinta didn't go at all.

Dolly hasn't gone blonde yet, but she is reposting the backstage shots from Kimbra's tour she pretendes to take while she lurks around at the Arcane release party, I guess trying to make people think she was ever a photog in the first place? She's also doubling down on the alt outfit posting but the more she does it the more obvious it is that she's wearing a costume.

Melody has started posting again & suddenly Miyavi can comment on her posts & be nice to his wife, unlike when he was on tour with Gaby, Dolly and Yuki.

I bet these girls slowly start getting phased out soon, and bonus points of that Hawaii live in January gets canceled.

Sinta finally dropped new music but is still nowhere near LA, tho richardfrias is still up her butt within the literal minute of her posts. Moved all her MYV tour highlights to her "play" collection and removed the one she made for the tour.

Dolly keeps posting abt being an azn girlboss despite not actually doing anything aside from posting selfies and receiving praise for being some sort of "artist". No trace of her ill-fitting bondage egirl outfits from tour, either.

Miyavi still liking her pics as of 2 days ago and leaving heart emojis which she replies to with more heart emojis. She also comments on nearly all his selfies since the tour. Dolly also moved her MYV tour highlights, and lost about 2.5K followers out of nowhere after gaining only about ~100 since the MYV tour, but Sinta and Yuki have gained folllowers since- more than Dolly.

Miyavi also started taking his wife and kids along to the shows on tour, as the tourwhores have both been suspiciously silent in LA as the Hawaii show creeps up in January.

With the Blue Note Hawaii show creeping closer and closer, it's very telling that they both unfollowed him and neither has been mentioned when MYV promotes the show, and neither one has said anything about it in over a month. I guess we can only wait & see if Richard Frias's "photog/model/dancer/singer" girls ends up at the show alongside Melody & the kids, but I doubt it.

I honestly can't believe someone with such a family-oriented image got so sloppy over two ugly nobodies. Or that he was so desperate for 20-something pussy after lockdown that he hired an escort managing idea theif to feed him new ideas just so he could have a pair of tourwhores to play around with and show off.

>myv sake

>exclusive merch collections (KLKTN)
>Yoshida Brothers collab
>virtual lives & the VR fan ticket experience

All these ideas were credited to Frias after Miyavi hired him for the North American Imaginary tour in June/July 2020. Every one of those ideas AND MORE was stolen from MYV's fans bc Frias made a gmail account to chat on Hangouts and scalp ideas from fans while scouting for tourwhores on Instagram using Miyavi Private accounts- and he's still doing it.

About a month ago I made a shell IG and sent Melody a message abt all this with my own screenshots from 2020 and the email Frias was using to pose as Miyavi since then- and Frias blocked that shell acct without me EVER interacting with him on it. Two days later, I made an IG with my twitter handle (my main, the one Yoshiki followed for over a decade, see below) and Frias blocked that one as well even though I never used it to interact with him, Melody, Miyavi, Yoshiki, Dolly, Gaby or Yuki- I made it to see if he was blocking all my handles and he is, except my main IG which I followed him on this summer when the Imaginary tour was finally announced. I guess he doesn't wanna be TOO too obvious.

Since then, Mel and the kids have been all over MYV, he's wearing his ring again and ignoring both tourwhores, and he went back and recreated all the Halloween Squid Game pics he posted to his story back in October with his daughters- in the SAME EXACT COSTUMES, same exact poses.

A bonus: around the same time Frias messaged me as Miyavi on IG in 2020, I also got a msg from a Yoshiki private acct asking if I wanted to tour with him near the end of 2021 as well, and from what I can tell it looks like Frias may have used several JP celeb identities to steal ideas from their fans. Yoshiki posted a rushed message about it to his IG story briefly a lil while ago without giving any real info, then suddenly a few days ago he announced he was staying in Japan for a while/until further notice after being admitted to the ER for "stress pains" in his stomach. Yeah, I bet you're fucking stressed.

Actual Yoshiki, as in YoshikiOffficial on Twitter followed my personal twitter account for over 12 years (I've blocked him since all this ofc), which was locked and he was the only follower for over a year, so I know he absolutely knows who I am despite never contacting me directly using his official twitter. And thanks to my tweet analytics, I know he saw every private tweet I made in the last year about all this. I have screenshots of everything from Twitter.

Yukibomb had the decency to remove herself from everything ASAP when I made my first post here abt it all. Smart.

I actually have screens of everything, emails, and I'm not stupid enough to buy the "get a random black guy to videocall me and claim it was a nigerian scam" when i start threatening legal action, either.

Takamasa "Miyavi" Ishihara called me on hangouts and said my legal name in his unique voice and accent. He told me abt the Imaginary tour in 2020 before it was even announced and tried to get me on it, but I'm not a whore or s musician/model/dancer/photog so I said fuck no, that would be obvious as hell. So what does he do? Steal my ideas and take those two desperate socks on tour & dresses them in copies of the outfits I had on my IG in 2020 (I've purged and privated my acct since then).

Frias is smart as fuck to do things the way he is, but he's still a sloppy greedy idiot at the end of the day.

Fuck you, Frias. Enjoy the upcoming social fallout, and good luck pushing those two talentless nobodies with blatantly fake audio of them singing songs they didn't even write or record in your living room.

Miyavi, Richard Frias, Gaby and Dolly are all in Hawaii for the show; Melody is silent.

Hilarious at Gaby for saying she's flying to HI for "work", since she isn't a singer in her own right and both girls are only going to the show to stand on stage for Miyavi's ego & warm his cock afterwards.

Melody must be a total doormat, though what do you expect from a 25 year old American woman desperate to make it in Japan who took 4 months to convince Miyavi the meal ticket baby was his?

Dragging these girls along with him is the big tell. They came from nowhere to do nothing but play around with him on tour while he slipped little signs into his SM posts (the ones that were all edited after the tour ended) and now he's trying to act like it was all professional all along & they actually need to be there to flirt with him on stage like they're actual musicians or dancers when relly they're just escorts with a manager feeding them a taxable cover story for all the big handouts they both got after the Imaginary tour despite barely doing anything other than taking escort-tier IG selfies.

Who knew turning 40 could hurt a married man's ego so badly? kek

You all are acting like cheating isn't super common in Japan.
I am not a miyavi fan but why botter Melody with this bullshit.
Btw a lot of famous woman fuck their way to success, i personally don't judge.Miyavi seems an good father for japanese standarts that ( basically really low)

The "good father" thing is just PR. Lovelie is a genderspecial which doesn't happen without growing up around some fucked up gender roles, and it's not really a thing in Japan. As for Melody, lots of women doing it doesn't make it any less cheap and pathetic. Melody came from a family of well connected people giving her handouts since she was 18 and the best thing she ever did for her career was P-trap Miyavi so sneakily that when he announced it he was obviously pissed off, and they took so long to do it that back then on /cgl/ there was a small flamewar where some delulu fans tried to claim she hasld a full term baby only 5 months after getting married.

And it's not like she has any power over him anyway- hence their new baby. She had to have a son on her own birthday to get her husband to remember hers, then immediately after he fuck off to the states to dip his dick in some basic escorts while she thirts over him in his IG comments. She is his bitch, he tolerates it for the sake of his goody family man image but in reality she's just a dependawhore who got lucky.

The point isn't to get anything out of it- I offered the chance to do things right and was called ridiculous- so I'll settle for making sure it's known that Miyavi is a scrote with a shit marriage based entirely on an image he needs to protect himself from the consequences of his horny fuckboi ego.

One more thing: it's also about the fact that he can only stay relevant by stealing ideas from his fans after making them promises he knows he won't keep. I'm personally curious how many times he did it before he got to me, and how Yoshiki fits into it all considering his behavior over the past few months leading up to him moving back to Japan so suddenly.

Aside from all that, what they're doing is illegal which is likely part of why Yoshiki ran back to Japan. Remember, he was liking all the OTT tourwhore Imaginary pics too. Yoshiki never followed any of the girls with his IG or Twitter, but both of them are followed by a @Yoshiki69 account with no posts that follows everyone involved in this, including Yoshiki, Melody and Frias. Neither one has many Japanese followers otherwise and the bulk of them seem to be Miyavi/Yoshiki fans accounts or people either artist has worked with in the past.

I wonder why Dolly & Gaby need to be at the Hawaii show if they aren't listed as being part of the show? He stopped tagging them in Blue Note posts as well.

I guess they're literally there as cockwarmers & standing them on stage simply provides them with a bullshit paper-thin excuse to shamelessly flaunt their whoredom in front of his wife and fans like they're special for sucking middle aged married dick. Why is it always ugly, talentless girls who think prostitution makes them better than everyone else just because their John has some fame?

P.S., look who is liking the posts as well as posting at the same time as Miyavi.

Both girls are at the show rehearsal despite not a single mention of them being there by the venue, Miyavi, Richard Frias or anyone but the girls themselves from their stories; Melody & his kids are still in Japan.

The only people they're pushing Dolly and Sinta as performers to are the people who bought tickets, who have unfortunately paid money to help enable a 40 year old man to cheat on his wife while stroking his already massive ego.

It isn't enough for him to cheat on his wife with multiple younger women, he has to make sure at least some people see it and buy into his lie of yanking whores into stardom and fame as a reward for pleasing him. Unfortunately getting blasted for it burst that bubble.

Also, this time they're wearing modest white dresses for the show instead of edgy BDSM egirl goth shit. Still, it doesn't change the fact that Richard and these girls flew to HI, as well as all over North America, just to threeway a married man while he cucks his wife and flaunt it on Instagram.

Are/were their travel expenses, food and hotel stays all covered by Miyavi's ticket or merch sales, I wonder?

Since these posts, both whores have started reposting the same few pics since landing in Hawaii over and over, no mention of Miyavi or the shows anymore and Miyavi hasn't mentioned either one or tagged them in any show posts. Blue Note Hawaii hasn't mentioned either Gaby or Dolly at all, they're not part of the show in any way. They're literally just there to fuck Miyavi and play rockstar onstage as payment for it. Now that they're exposed they're trying to downplay everything they worked sooo hard to show off last September/October, what a spectacular backpedal.

Yukibomb is randomly in Hawaii as well, though hasn't posted anything about the shows or Miyavi at all since the first posts about the Imaginary tour here. She's a groupie too, just way more careful about no being associated with the other two shamefully sloppy escorts.

So, 3 Asian 20-something comfort girls flown to Hawaii just to fuck a married father of 3 so he feels like a rockstar again. Pathetic.

If Yoshiki can't even be able to open a fucking lid why the fuck is he planning on beginning a new band? He has to know that his plan and ego will kill him if he continues like this. He also stopped posting the Xx shit and said he was alone/single. And now he's stressing? Of course he is.

Another interesting note is that while Yuki is clearly one of Frias's escorts, for some reason she REFUSES to be associated or seen with the other two escorts. Dolly is the most proud whore and loves to flaunt & drop hints like she's the next Melody, so I hope she doesn't end up pregnant just like she did at the same age bc she was also going nowhere despite all her handouts.

And the venue still hasn't posted, tagged or mentioned any of the 3 escorts at all, which means they have nothing to do with the show officially. Miyavi and Frias are literally just dragging them around to show off and fuck as pretend singers who aren't even good at singing.

They get to be on stage all bc they took turns helping Miyavi cuck his pitiful old doormat wife/ sucked some fat middle aged loser's cock and helped him steal ideas from Miyavi's fans.

Imagine having to fuck this fat loser just to get onstage with a married man bc it's the only way you can get noticed in life even with a ton of easy ass handouts.

Buy the way: these 4 spent almost a week in Hawaii before the shows, most likely paid for by the tour. I guess being a shameless whore pays well?

Points to Frias for being smart enough to use Miyavi's fans for both ideas and advertising his escorts, though!

"Lee" has been frantically reading my chats as well, but not replying, and I can't help but think the laughing emojis on the story post tagging his whores is supposed to be a dig on me, but that's ok.

Maybe if he wanted me to believe the random black guy cover, he shouldn't have tried passing him off as American (with broken English?) to another American, sitting in a room with JP shit on the walls behind him AFTER multiple voice and video calls with him. Jackass must think I either had a stroke or that he's safe bc I didn't record those calls, but I have more than enough without that.

Very interesting how once I notice things & post abt them here they change, like how he started tagging and posting the escorts & they suddenly started posting about the show (Yuki).

Hilarious to me that he needed 3 sloppy Asian girls to get over one blonde white bitch shooting him down,though. I always kek heartily when nonwhite dudes call me racist for telling them no.

>>177200
Me again, also notice how any time Dolly is on stage she can't stop staring at Miyavi and doing her little twirls like a fangirl. I guess that's why she was right beside him in every single offstage Imaginary tour pic & why they painted the "Lee + Tracy" heart at Cadillac Ranch.

Some things that I've noticed through time in this thread

MYV will just keep on cheating on his wife and she's not going to do anything about it. They must have some kind of agreement for him to be acting like that in public and she's keeping quiet on everything.

On the Yoshiki note I just think the whole thing is a shit show. Ever sense the dating news began here nobody gave out any more details and the Marilyn Manson case started. Now Yoshiki moved out of California, broke up with the SB and he's hiding in Japan. There was another rumor saying that he had raped an underaged girl some years ago but nobody gave out any details or further information.

Kamijo is going both solo and with Versailles this year. Guess the whole beef between him and Yoshiki could be true but if Kamijo thinks he's going to do better than Extav even with Versailles he's out of his fucking mind. If Extav ever happens and doesn't end up like SKIN that is, at the rate that Yoshiki is going he will die before releasing anything else.

Miyavi posted a pic of him in the pool at the hotel in Hawaii, posed like he's getting head underwater.

Funny thing is, Yukibomb was in that pool with him when the photo was taken, she posted her pool pocs a few days ago but didn't tag Miyavi or the hotel. She's also still currently with him in LA, and went to Riot games with him seemingly for no reason. Looks like, despite Dolly clinging to him every chance she got, he chose Yuki bc she's the more subtle escort & doesn't make it so childishly obvious.

2/2

I've also been screencapping all the ways that Miyavi has been adjusting his patterns after I post about them here: Now all the escorts follow Myv again, after I posted that they unfollowed him (has recepits). After I posted asking how his kids can have IG already, he makes a Halloween costume post with them tagging their accounts which he never did before. Yuki went from trying to hide herself to pretending to be anything useful on set that she can manage to not fuck up (which doesn't seem to be working based on how they toss her around and let her do whatever?) And have an excuse to still be traveling with Myv. She also stopped styling her hair to match the selfies I sent Lee & now straightens it.

"Lee" last checked the chats on Jan 1st but still hasn't replied. I notice he checks the chats befofe making a new collab or product announcement, though.

Postng again to add: notice that these pics were taken in almost the same spot in the pool at the same time of day, meaning they were in the pool together and likely with Frias taking photos for the two. Yuki's pis was taken first based on lighting.

Also, if you compare the surface of the water in both pics, the water in Miyavi's pic is disturbed while in Yuki's it's moderately still, like she walked the edhe then sat on it before dipping her feet in. The swirling pattern above Miyavi's hips indicate that something or someone submerged there right before the pic was taken, so what likely went down was Yuki waked the edge, took her pic, dipped in followed by Miyavi then ducked under for a racy pic for Myv to post on his IG, like their little secret.

I wonder how many times they're gonna keep reposting the same few pics to their stories/feed just to subtly prove they're watching here. This is the 6th time Miyavi or the tourwhores have reposted Hawaii pics after they were posted or mentioned here. Dolly sure does need a hell of a lot of coddling, doesn't she? Too bad she's so unprofessional she can't pull off pretending to work with him in LA now like Yuki is trying to do.

Bonus: every time I view the tourwhores's stories, Miyavi reposts Hawaii pics taghing them do they can repost them. He and they have posted/reposted the pool jump pic, the poolside group pic, show pics and Imaginary tour pics all at least 3x, way after the fact, seemingly at random except for the fact that it always happens after I check their stories. Remember, Richard blocked not only my IG shell that I messsged Melody on, but he also blocked the IG I made that never interacted with any of them (but had the same pfp).

Went back to check, Jan 1st was his Kollektn collab announcement. "Exclusive merch club" was another idea I gave him back when he was still begging me to tour with him.
