Okay, I retract my comment in my previous post about the validity of the report about the prayer, because there are photos to accompany this new report. Okay, just one, but a really beautiful and natural one, which makes up for the trivia.
歌手中森明菜（４１）が演歌・歌謡曲のカバーアルバム「艶華―Ｅｎｋａ―」のヒット祈願を２６日、東京・港区の豊川稲荷で行った。作曲家の千住明氏のプ ロデュースによる、デビュー２５年目で初の演歌作品。「こぶしが回せなくて苦手だったけど、千住さんに１００％助けられて完成した」と笑顔。「新しく生ま れ変わった演歌をテイスティングしてほしい」とＰＲした。
Here it means that Akina gave full credit to the producer for helping her complete the album and she is using this album as a test for her possible new "life". Bigger and better version of the photo:
Since we are on trivia, guess what I saw on my May trip to Melbourne …
Just before anyone gets too excited, it is actually not Akina, but Akira, the famous Japanese designer. Still, when the "r" looks like "n", you can’t blame me for getting a little excited. Maybe he is a fan of Akina’s too? Ha! Ha! I also saw a sign outside a shop that says "SM", signed similar to her recent "Best of Best" logos, and I certainly hope it made no sexual reference whatsoever. No, it was a boutique I believe, before the rumors start spreading.
