I agree with the "hot" bit... "sing great"... Not so sure about that ;)

I agree Junnama. She's still one of the cutest even at 33.

Yeah, I took a YouTube plunge a while back to see what she was all about. I watched several videos, but had to hit mute after the first video...

I once had a smokin pic of her on my phone wallpaper. Still have it somewhere. Tight white one piece and long straight hair. Looked better than a hot fudge sundae.

She puts on a great show, too. Certainly no diva, but she can hold a tune, great dancer and yes, very hot.

She could incorporated her real-life experience into her music performance; more than that, she has blended R&B of J-Pop and American styles to keep her popularity alive for more than a decade. I have justed previewed some video clips of hers on Youtube. She has added more English sentences in her song lyrics.

I don't really care if she can sing, but she's built like a figure skater.

Ganbatte, cutie!
