My number one girl crush, Amuro Namie, celebrated her 33rd birthday (her real birthday was Sept 20) by chillin’ on a high-end night club. Unfortunately, one publication decided to make a big deal out of a non-issue and published this picture of Namie while exiting the club:
Along with the published picture, it was headlined that Namie got wasted on her 33rd birthday.
Uhm, and that was supposed to be a big deal?
Cos the last time I checked, Namie is still a human being and aren’t we all supposed to get wasted on our birthdays? Especially if you are someone who has been working so hard since you were a teenager, has gone through so much yet emerged unscathed and continues to be a force to reckon with in the Japanese entertainment industry.
So to the publication who thinks this is scandalous — eff off.
This is what I don’t get with some publications dealing with celebs. Their notion of scandals can be both moronic and mindless at times. What maybe a big scandal in this part of the world (wasted! kissing someone! dating someone! sleeping with someone!) is just a ho-hummmm development in other parts of the world. On the other hand, I think it’s the responsibility of supporters to be more discerning of the news these publications offer.
This girl deserves her time-off and hopefully, you didn’t get to ruin her birthday by publishing shit about her. Hell, if I was Namie–I’d effing get wasted till I can no longer stand cos I deserve to celebrate, damn it!
