Old News: 丑闻女王中森明菜咸鱼翻身

Did a google on "中森明菜" and found this piece of news reported by a Chinese newspaper in July. It is amazing and irritating at the same time that Akina’s name is always linked with these two phrases in the Chinese media: "丑闻女王" and "咸鱼翻身". I believe they use "丑闻女王" for Seiko too but "咸鱼翻身" has been used on a couple of occasions on Akina. I wonder if and when she gets invited back to 紅白 again this year, will these words "咸鱼翻身". be recycled once again.

Here is the report:

今年已经39岁的丑闻女王中森明菜,出道经年早已“恶贯满盈”,去年开始却意外地人气高涨,让人大跌眼镜。

中森名菜今年7月7日到11日之前,会在东京品川的王子酒店的俱乐部eX举办演唱会,演唱会名为“EMPRESS”,根据中森明菜3部顶级系列专辑《歌姬》中选出的歌曲定名。中森名菜本人更是表示:“我希望可以展现出前所未有的妖艳的舞台!”

实际上,在日本提到中森明菜,就会让人联想到非常不好的方面。

 

中森明菜曾为男人搞得身心俱疲,还曾一度因此酗酒崩溃,导致恶评如潮,更被冠上“丑闻女王”的封号。中森明菜当时更因此突然在即将上演的电视节目和演唱会开始前不久临时毁约,还突然和唱片公司解除和约,打算就此隐退。日本媒体因此对她进行连番抨击,更认为中森明菜从此以后会消失在演艺圈,一时之间中森明菜在日本演艺圈变成了人人喊打的过街老鼠。

但出人意料的是,中森明菜非但没有退出演艺圈,甚至再次逐渐展现了她天后的魅力。今年5月日本国税局发表的高额纳税者名单中,就赫然有中森明菜的名字。她去年的推定年收入达约有5800万日元。

 

据某位圈内记者分析:“中森明菜现在每年都会定期举办全国巡回演唱会和表演晚宴,而且几乎场场爆满。中森明菜在少女偶像时代就非常受欢迎,一直以来都拥有很稳定的粉丝群。加上近来她改变了很多也更成熟了,每次举办演唱会时都会有固定的粉丝群以及被她现在的风情迷倒的人去看。中森明菜去年的收入不错,绝大部分是依靠她的演唱会,每一场都有500万日元的收入。”

虽然是公认的丑闻女王,但现在的中森明菜却绽放出异样的魅力,获得日本媒体一致好评,相信现在是中森明菜最好的翻身机会。

Thankfully, there was some saving grace at the end, recognising Akina’s charm and they used a few nice photos, so I thought I might share that. Can anyone identify that "matador" pose because I don’t think I saw that photo before and was she trying to bite her nails in the one next to it? Still, it was done elegantly. Ha! Ha!

The announcement for 紅白 should be imminent because this is the latest since 2001 that they have not revealed the list. Hopefully, we will have something great to look forward to at the end of this year!

Akina fanboy since 14. Still undecided which are his top ten favourite Akina tracks as it's mission impossible. Digs "Everlasting Love" a whole lot more than the average Akina fan.
