All of them?

Any Japanese celebrity.

0 ( +4 / -4 )

All of them.

6 ( +7 / -1 )

None. Their name would be in the headline, and if I'm not interested, I don't read the article. Common sense.

-4 ( +1 / -5 )

All of them.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

All of them. There is no need to glorify the lives of celebrities. I would far rather hear about regular members of society who are actually doing something of importance.

4 ( +5 / -1 )

Most of them, but when the media shoves them down our throats it's hard to ignore sometimes. Particularly gag-worthy as of latel are Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus. My eyes usually just glaze over when I read the names of Japanese celebrities because I have no idea who they are.

2 ( +2 / -0 )

None of them. I don't read or watch stuff I'm not interested in in the first place.

Are there Japanese celebrities?

Thankfully, we don't have a TV, so I'm immune.

All of them... and around BAFTA and Oscar time it gets worse.

Same here. All of them.

Royalty is always a turn off.

Are there celebrities in Japan? I know there are a lot in the streets that are trying to be..but they surely have gotten the wrong notion of being one..what more the ones that come out on tv. They are not celebrities, they fit in the category of entertainers and not celebs.

seriously, is UETO AYA the only celebrity in Japan???? 9 out of 10 ads features her!!!

I can tolerate a lot of things, but Japan's incessant 'celebrity'-come-commercialism juggernaut BS really gets my goat. Why must I be put through Arashi on the train (for both Kirin AND JAL! In the same train! I mean c'mon WTF?!), Arashi on the billboard outside the station then on countless ads on TV? There's rampant commercialism, then there's the beating-to-death of it by Japanese media companies...

Kanye West and Kim Kardashian/Jayzee and Beyonce/Justin Bieber President Obama LMAO
