My heart bleeds for you how difficult your "job" is.

Having worked in professional entertainment, I can tell you the amount of hair spray fumes on some sets would amaze anyone. I still don't know how people can breathe and also not have serious issues later in life.

Kuribo1, it actually sounds like her life is controlled by a doting manager who constantly nags her about her next schedule, diet, and sleep. She probably has very little free time and few friends, and very much like a film actress she faces the daily pressure of she herself being the product. Not really an easy life and many points of it don't sound enviable or fun.

Actually her life doesn't sound very different or more difficult than the average catwalk model. I don't know what she's complaining about.

And I've always found it very curious that so few Japanese models make it on the international scene. My own informal research gives me the impression that most popular Asian catwalk models are Chinese or Korean.

“I’ve been to New York, Singapore, Hong Kong ... and I’ve always thought the Japanese ways are very subtle—the hair and make-up artists are the best in the world. The fashion has its subtleties too and Japanese designers predominantly think about how to make the clothes wearable (for consumers). The thought that goes into it is amazing.”

The pictures don't show this, what I am looking at is preparations for Oct 31 or Michael Jacksons Thriller video ########################################################################################## “There’s no fighting in Japan,” she says. “They organize everything so well to make sure that stuff doesn’t happen here.”

Thats because your manager control your pay check! In other countries especially the US the model control their managers through their agencies and the make more money!
