The idol industry is pretty seedy, her producers may have just used it to make her look like she actually cares about her fans.
I was at her show last night in Hatsudai, and she sat at the merch booth to talk to fans and sell merch herself. She even put up with my garbage Japanese. It's pretty normal to be pessimistic, especially on the internet, but she seemed pretty genuine to me.

Posted in: The 'takamikura' (throne) and the Imperial Regalia are based on mythology, and they will be used to demonstrate the legitimacy of the emperor as a descendent of the god. This violates Article 1 of the Constitution, which stipulates that the emperor derives his position from the will of the people.
