Ayumi Hamasaki splurges on burial land

leave a comment »

J-Pop queen Ayumi Hamasaki carries on her splurging ways, and recent news reported that her recent splurges include burial land for the Hamasaki family!

(that’s kinda an odd purchase i would say)

According to reports, Ayumi had spent approximately a whopping 10 million yen on a piece of burial land in Tokyo central. In addition to this, she spent another 8 million yen to erect a burial stone using high-quality materials. The burial stone is said to have “Hamasaki Family” carved in 3 different languages – Japanese, English and Chinese.

Indeed, this is what I deem as burial fit for the royalty. In this case, I mean the royalty of the Japanese music scene.

Wow.

Ayumi: Rimmel’s first Asian “image character”

leave a comment »

Ayumi Hamasaki has been chosen to represent Rimmel, a London-based cosmetics brand, joining Kate Moss and other female celebrities. She is going to be the first “image character” from Asia, and indeed Japanese must be proud of her!

Ayumi, as Rimmel’s new face, is appointed in the hope of attracting more people from the Asian market to the brand, with the female artiste’s popularity and big-eyed beauty. As a fashion leader in Japan, Ayumi has also been models for many other brands.

The Japanese celebrity is expected to be seen in their advertisement starting next month. To kick start it all, Rimmel will be promoting their new eye product, using Ayumi’s huge mesmerising assets – her eyes!

Ayumi Hamasaki, illustrated.

leave a comment »

Pop star Ayumi Hamasaki will be teaming up with famous mangaka Akira Toriyama for her upcoming single “Rule/ Sparkle”. Toriyama is best known for his creation of Dragon Ball in 1984. This time round, Toriyama has drawn a likeness of Ayumi Hamasaki that will be printed on the first press CDs and DVDs of this new single. This is his first time drawing an illustration for a music artiste, as well as drawing a real person for a commercial product.

But of course, this collaboration is a result of Hamasaki’s “Rule” being used as the theme song of the worldwide release of the live-action “Dragonball” movie, based on Toriyama’s creation.

The single will go on sale in late February, way ahead of the movie’s release in mid March.
