It is actually very possible not to know. I have no idea what Serbian pop singers are doing even though I live here. I am completely oblivious of what kind of pictures they take or videos they do. Japan is much bigger than Serbia and therefore it's super easy to miss these things regardless of them being everywhere. It's not like this is a super original idea :rolleyes It's literally just people in dresses.

Hi,

Does anyone have two extra tickets for the May 12th concert? Please let me know :)

Cahz- 27th February 2018 06:35 PM

Thank you mizuki-7 :)

Do people not know how this works? It’s usually the photographers direction that they follow and it ends up being the final photos.

Blame the photographers and not Namie or Ayu. :rolleyes
But anyways I don’t see the comparisons, the only common thing is the fabric.


Every single time, people have to compare.....

Some people, including Sunshineslayer, give Amuro (who is super famous for being super creative when it comes to just about everything) too much credit. I wonder how will the pop scene in Japan survive when she retires and then there is nobody to inspire great ideas.

Absolutely love the new promo image.

EndOfTheWorld 27th February 2018 07:48 PM

In my opinion whenever Leslie Kee photographs Ayu, she never looks like her self. I like the photo but it has a very artificial look. I feel that way with just about everything he does. I do sometimes like his work with Ayu but generally no. Ayu just can't seem to quit Leslie Kee.:laugh

Aderianu 27th February 2018 07:54 PM

I think only Leslie Kee can portray Ayu as powerful woman

hud 27th February 2018 08:03 PM

y'all should just chill and not take everything that serious lol

I don't think Ayu needs Leslie Kee to accomplish that.:dead2

Actually, in this kind of of work, nops. Either Leslie was an integral part of her team for this pieces and had a saying on the direction, but not the final decision, or he received the directions before hand to follow. The direction was most likely from Ayu's creative team.

And the fabric thing is obviously a trend, considering so many people are using that at the same time. But I have to agree that for the casual observer it looks like Ayu copied Namie because Namie's event was anounced earlier and generated more buzz.

I wouldn't be surprised if this direction was decided BECAUSE it looks like Namie's, as a way to grab the attention of people confusing both promotions.

I just don't get why people make such a big deal about this when we've only seen two (three?) photos with this fabric lol. Not unless Ayu names her next album "Finally" and re-records every single track like, seriously?

tokyoxjapanxfan 27th February 2018 11:25 PM

Namie apparently has dibs on tulle. Lol

Honestly I don't care. And if we're being technical, Namie looks like she's using organza. Ayu's looks more like tulle. Hahah

I was in Japan at the release of Finally. It was not possible, lol. Well, I suppose anything is possible; just not likely at all in this case. And I am serious about that. You didn't need to be out looking for it. You didn't need to be a follower of pop music. It was on every single television news program, every single newspaper, every single subway station, billboards in just about every part of town, etc., etc., etc. Even if Ayu herself didn't know, there is no way someone on staff, particularly the photographer himself wouldn't have known.

That said, I don't care. What's wrong with it? I think it's one of Ayu's best shots in a long time.

What did I even say about Amuro? I said it was an odd choice given the timing, but that I like the photo. I even said it's not a creative idea for either of them, lol. And Ayu has always been my number one by a long, long ways, so I don't know why this is even brought up?

Yeah. Sorry about most of that. Rough day yesterday.
