Kitagawa Keiko for Cyber-shot Keitai S006

On 3rd February, actress Kitagawa Keiko (24) attended the CM presentation for Sony Ericsson's Cyber-shot Keitai S006. Besides its touch panel and high-speed telecommunications functions, the mobile phone comes equipped with a 16.2 million pixel camera. In the new commercial that starts airing on the 5th, Kitagawa showed off various facial expressions with the theme of 'self-taken photos' and 'photos taken of oneself'. "During the shoot, I was asked to look like the photos were taken by a lover or someone I liked. It made me feel embarrassed but I'm glad they turned out well," she commented shyly. Singer Naoto Inti Raymi also attended the presentation and sang the CM song 'Ima no Kimi o Wasurenai'.

Keiko looks good in the CM, looks good in the making, so why the heck does she look like Falkor during the presentation?!

Yamada Yu dislocates right shoulder

On 1st February, Yamada Yu posted an entry on her blog along with a photo of her arm in a sling. She wrote that it was the first time she had dislocated her shoulder and it happened the night before. According to her agency, Yamada had dislocated her right shoulder at home and she had a friend, a sports masseuse treat her injury. She went to work as usual on the 1st.


That's the end of that piece of news but I read some gossip a few days back which made me imagine that she probably popped her arm while trying to wrestle Shun's wallet or handphone away from him :D

According to Josei Jishin, Yamada has been handling the finances since Shun was caught cheating on her last November when he was seen entering a love hotel with a young actress. The tabloid cited a meal Yamada and Shun had at a shabu-shabu restaurant in Setagaya on 18th January as an example. A customer remarked on how Yamada was cooking the meat and vegetables and serving Shun like a 'new wife'. About one and a half hour later, they were done and Yamada paid the bill. As they left the restaurant, Yamada was the one holding on to the wallet. They took a cab and went back to Shun's apartment.

A gossip reporter said that Shun had basically prostrated before Yamada and begged for her forgiveness. After Yamada recovered from the shock of the betrayal, their relationship continued but a change has taken place. A friend of Shun (yeah, some friend) had this to say.

"After the cheating scandal, Yamada-san erased Oguri-kun's phone memory. Whenever she says 'Give me the phone', he will hand it over to her meekly without any argument (laugh). Oguri-kun probably regrets that incident too and is changing his ways. It seems like the way Yu-chan thinks has changed as well. She doesn't want to be cheated on again and probably think she should take charge and be more assertive. Whenever they eat or go shopping, it is Yu-chan who is paying now. With her in charge to that extent, maybe it will prevent Oguri-kun from ever cheating again (laugh)."

So they were just probably playing a friendly phone tug-of-war when it happened :)

Yamapi dating a gaijin?

In the February 15th issue of Shukan Josei that went on sale yesterday, Yamashita Tomohisa (25) from NEWS was caught on a date with someone described as a model-like Caucasian beauty. It seems that he has broken up with rumoured girlfriend Kitagawa Keiko for more than a year already.

January 23rd. A cold rainy night in Nishiazabu. Yamapi appeared in a Japanese restaurant, known to host the Prime Minister and other VIP visitors.

"It looked like a fun double date with two white girls and another good-looking Japanese guy. The atmosphere was relaxed. From what I overheard of their conversations, it was in English. I thought 'Yamashita-kun can speak English~,' it surprised me." (A customer)

Yamapi's date was wearing a down jacket with black fur and she was slim with long legs.

"When we were entering the restaurant, they were hugging at the entrance. With the slim foreign girl, it looked like a scene right out of a drama. In the restaurant, they didn't care who were looking and sat near the entrance. The girl was talking to him and I heard her asking 'You are okay?' and also saw him affectionately brushing her hair to whisper in her ear." (Same customer)

After that, they headed to the building where the 'Ebizo incident' took place for more drinking. On their way there, at a red traffic light, Yamapi and the girl snuggled up to each other. When the light turned green, they didn't hold hands but maintained a distance and continued walking.

When Yamapi finally left the building with the girl by his side, it was about 4:30 in the morning. He hailed for a cab and they got in together, disappearing into the streets before dawn.

Inoue Mao Staff Diary
1st January 2011

1st January 2011 19:03

Happy New Year.
Please continue with your support this year too.

Today Mao-san has a new year message for everyone!!

Happy New Year!
I want to take this opportunity to give thanks to everyone who has aided and supported me last year.
And now the start of a new year!
This year the movies that I filmed for last year will open and the morning drama will also start airing.
It makes me happy that everyone is looking forward to seeing them. But besides the end product, I think it is also important to enjoy and be immersed in the process fully.
I will continue to face challenges to the best of my ability.

Actually I had thought of summing up what last year best meant to me in a single word, so I gave it some thought...
Many words popped up but in the end not one word would have expressed it well (^-^;
There were many happy moments, and sad moments too, a lot of memories and I think it had been a fulfilling year.

In 2011 too, I will continue to challenge myself and treat each passing day with care and hope for a great year. (It's my zodiac year so a (hopping) good year will be great (^^)♪)

I hope all of you will have a year filled with much laughter.
Please continue giving me your warm support!

Please take care of yourself and not catch a cold with these continuing cold days.
Let's have a good start together!

2011 New Year's Day
Inoue Mao


Happy Chinese New Year to those who celebrate it.
And since I haven't posted since 2011 started, Happy New Year! (=^ー゜)ノ
