Monday Fun: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu
Now that that's over, let's talk about the fun stuff! A few years ago, a friend that I met while taking a class at UCB sent me an email with Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's video "Candy Candy," and I'll be honest, I did not know what to make of it. And then I sort of forgot about it. Then, about a week ago, I was watching some Kids React videos, and I happened upon "Kids React to 'Pon Pon Pon.'" I have to say, their little captions and commentary got me curious. So, I navigated on over to the "Pon Pon Pon" video and watched it and, of course, I felt like I was on some Beatles-era drugs.
If you haven't been clicking on the links throughout this entry so far, I think I can best describe Kyary Pamyu Pamyu as a sort of cutesy Japanese cross between Lady Gaga and Katy Perry. She's all about a crazy costume, as she got her start as a fashion blogger of Harijuku and is, as Gwen Stefani has taught me (at minute 3:40), "super Kawaii." I must say, I am really jealous that she made it from a high school fashion blogger to making her own crazy Gaga/Perry videos. Someone...can we please make this happen for the spinster? I don't really need that many costumes. Just some fancy bathrobes and sweatpants.
So, I'm just warning you. I know I've done some ASMR videos, but the next thing may have to be a music video...just prepare yourself. It won't be tomorrow, though, so don't gird your loins just yet.
And now, friends, so you don't have to click on any links, I leave you with my favorite from Kyary Pamyu Pamyu: "Fashion Monster." Enjoy!
