She's 36? She still looks like a teenager.

At least she can sing a bit, unlike Ayumi, for example.

So it's been 20 years since that day when people of Japan watched the Supermonkey's debut performance and said, "Look, that girl actually has talent!"

Amuro is what separates 'tarento' with actual talent. She writes her own stuff in some cases, is a sexy danger, can sing, and has amazing presence. Look forward to seeing a performance.

Namie said when she sang at shopping centers in Okinawa before she became famous, she was mostly ignored by the shoppers. Unbelievable!

That's exactly where I like to see Amurochan, on top.

I actually saw her performing at one of those 'gigs' and she was charming but obviously a very raw talent at that time. Glad she's a superstar now.

Amuro always looked a lot younger than her age. When she debuted as a solo artist when she was 19, she actually looked like a 13 year old. I'm sure that there is some makeup involved, but not much. Ayumi Hamazaki is about the same age and she is a plastic surgery queen. Apparently she wanted to look like her Chihuahua, and it looks like she was successful but in a bad way.

Amuro Namie has definitely won the hearts of many fans that have come to know her music is not only a accomplished singer, but has mastered the art of stage performance and her training in dancing is evident in her performance and music video. She captures the heart of her audience by the graceful animation of her stage personality and maximizes the presentation of her vocal presentation of her vocal arrangements. Through her choreographic routine of her dance, she creates a complete artistic presentation of her music material. Hence her successful musical recording career has been accented by her continued public presence and touring. So Namie ganbatte kudasa.
