Thanks for starting the new thread!
But do you think you could put that animated image in a spoiler It's pretty large and it's slowing down my PC.

The source..., what was it? Was it a documentary on one of her tour DVDs or something where this was said?
I'm quoting my post since it was at the end of the last thread ^^;

Oh ok ^^; So like anyways, since Avex said that to her, "You have to have this image if you want to be successful" etc, when did she start to sex things up and pick up the erokakkoi style she's known for? I'd figured she was always like that. And I can't believe she "doesn't like it" O_O

In 2005 a little while before her contract was over, she needed to make a desperate move for some sales so they would renew it.

at the beginning of her career, she had a really plain image, nothing special to set her apart from other artists. the sexy thing was something that was popular at the time, so it was something unique and different. they knew she couldn't do the cutie thing too well because she doesn't have that childish appearance.

If "the sexy thing" was something popular at the time, how was it "something unique and different"?

None. I mean, when you think of popular female Japanese singers (of that time[sort of]) you think of Ayu (not sexy), Namie (can be sexy but not like Koda), Ai (cute), BoA(...no), Hikki (WAYY no), etc. No one was really doing it then, and no one has to this extreme.

I know I'm dragging on but I'm really shocked to hear that she doesn't like this sexy image. Why does she keep doing it then? I kind of feel that she was sort of selling her self out. (I'm not trying to start an argument or flame, really!)

Not in Japan lol Maybe Namie...but no one was thinking about her then.

Remember that Japanese people really love American music.

Anyway, these are all the reasons why I really respect Kuu as a person.

@Edge: What other choice does she have? Her stuff still isn't selling as well as I'm sure they'd like. She at least gets to have some fun and diversity in her music now. Not all of the songs she comes out with are Juicy's or BUT's.

I think for her, making the "sexy" music is just part of the job. Like Ayu says, sometimes she wants to make music, and sometimes she has to make music because it's her job. I honestly think Koda's just happy to be here and performing.

And besides...I think she can manipulate it so she can have fun with it.

Just because they weren't one of the big three (Ayu, Namie, and Kuu) doesn't mean nobody else was doing it.
cutieismylife is saying they went with the sexy image for Koda because it was "popular" and in the same post he goes on to say that she became successful because it was "unique and different"
If it was so popular at the time, there's bound to be other artists who were trying it out as well. Of course, they didn't reach the same degree of success that Koda did.
All I'm saying is that Koda has never been successful or popular because she's unique. It was because she took her top off and had a big label backing her.
If she didn't do either of those things, she would be nowhere right now, much like the other artists who tried the same thing but fell into obscurity because they didn't have a big label to pull all of the publicity stunts and tricks for some extra attention and sales.

i think that she didn't like the sexy image at first, but did it anyways to continue doing what she liked doing. i do think she got used to it and ended up liking it, otherwise she wouldn't have continued doing what she did and enjoyed herself. when you watch her makings, you don't see a person who's forced to do things this way.

what i meant in the other post, was the sexy image was popular with the audience, but was unique and different in terms of what known artists were doing then. of course avex had a lot to do with it, she was lucky to be with a label who saw something in her that they could exploit to earn cash.

I never really believed her when she said she didn't like doing the sexy image.
Clearly she's an exhibitionist and gets off on that sort of thing. Look at the control she has over her career now, and she still does it!
Not that I mind. I appreciate a girl who can get freaky like that.

I guess she tries to get a message across with it too as in the case of TABOO, which was too extreme for my tastes, but if she's happy, doing what she loves and pleasing her fans I guess that's whats important regardless of what she was forced to do in the past.

I understand what you're trying to say now, cutieismylife. Thanks for clearing that up. I guess you were just (miss)understood.
