[MAA] Your Favorite Bitch is watching the New Moon from her 3rd Thread



Profile
Name: Tanaka, Maria
Stagename Maria Mie Edward, previously known as MAA
Born: 25 January, 1986 (age 27)
Birthplace: Yokosuka, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan
Debut Date: 22 September 2010
Favorite artists: THE SAMOS, THE LOWBROWS, m-flo, UA, Superfly, YMO

Information

Spoiler:
Born to an American father and a Japanese mother, MAA's "bewitching" appearance has the subject of much discussion among music fans. Many music websites have compared her look to American artists such as Lady Gaga. In a NYLON JAPAN interview done in December 2010, MAA herself stated, "While I'm happy to be compared to Lady Gaga, the image I portray might be closer to Gwen Stefani. I feel like my style is full of components taken from people like Cyndi Lauper and Madonna."

MAA's music has been compared to the likes of Western pop artists as well. NYLON JAPAN stated, "[Monkey Kingdom]...boasts global-standard electro and R&B at its core alongside a diverse variety of genres including rock and dance." Also along music lovers around the globe her music is reviewed as great ,unique and called MAA as one of the best newcomers in 2010 in the music-industry.

MAA writes the lyrics to all of her songs, and has stated this about her writing: "I write my lyrics inside a tent in my room. The space within that tent is kind of like a womb, so it's as if all of my songs were born there.

MAA is a Japanese electronica/pop artist, formerly known as MAR, the vocalist of short-lived rock group MarBell. After the group disbanded, she debuted in September 2010 with the electro-pop single, "Ghost Enemy", under the stage name MAA. Although just recently a solo artist, MAA has been an active musician since 2004.

With thirteen tattoos on her body (the alligator on her back being her symbol), she is known for her rough nature due to her outgoing and carefree personality. Her exotic looks, due to an American father and Japanese mother, have drawn comparisons to many Western pop artists. Due to her eccentric attitude, many have given her the nickname, “psycho Cinderella”.

I love having MAA on instagram, she'll often respond or just say thank you. I posted a pic of my cats and also the new Love Again album by Ayu and she liked both.

^ I love that too! It's always such a nice surprise! She liked one of my cat pics the other day, but it wasn't my most recent pic by like 8 or so, which means she had to have actually gone to my profile to see it! :O I guess she was bored!

How unexpected..I'm kinda worried how many changes her career is undertaking. As long as she's happy then I'm happy, but I thought the new label would bring more stability.

AKA Maria Consuela de las Mercedes

Sounds like she's about to become the new star of an upcoming Mexican Soap Opera


As long as she gives us more music I'm happy
