it absolutely plays into her image. Ringo's always had that mystique, but it's exactly the kind of speculation she'd have absolutely no reason to address.

lol @ the people trying to act like sexism has nothing to do with the Becky thing tho.

Yeah, I do remember her stating ahead of time that she plans to get pregnant and be a single mom. The married man part can easily fit into that "rebellious" plan

An new commericial for Japan Post Insurance Co., which directed by Yuichi Kodama, and the song used was composed by Ringo. I would say that the song is very Onna no Ko wa Dare Demo, and the visual is very Kohaku 2011 Performance+EXPO 14+LG isai v32 advertisement.

Duh


edit: the 90s special advertisement will be online at March 1, 10am JST.

Thanks. Seems pretty shitty to show up to a ROCK festival with a parasol and 50s style bathing suit and sing some lounge jazz as well as a bunch of songs the audience doesn't know. I would have thrown something on stage.

Well, she also did NIPPON and a few other more upbeat numbers at the same show. Although I kinda liked this performance of Marunouchi Sadistic, tbh.

That same stage also held the likes of FKA Twigs, Hiromi Uehara, Deadmau5 and Owl City. I don't think Fuji Rock festival invited Ringo Shiina along for her rock credentials.

ALSO NIPPON IS TRASH

Agreed, but it's not lounge jazz either.

Not sure why all the hate for lounge jazz Ringo. Lounge jazz Ringo is smoking hot.

I've mentioned this before, the essence of Marunouchi is bright eyed youthfulness so it's a crime to turn that song into something you would hear at a senior's cruise buffet.

sadface
I still think it's a dick move, though. Not even her fans would prioritize seeing Mittei Monogatari live. It almost seems like she picked the songs to fit the outfit and not the audience.
