I pretty much disagree with every single one of your points, palsunstar. Is this really the best she can do? The famed child-star of Morning Musume that everyone (seemingly) loved? ALL of your so-called "tame" attempts to get back into the spotlight strike me as being particularly desperate, and I find it kind of sad that you think that it's "not that bad" until she does full blown nudes. After what she did with her fame and popularity as a child, does she really need to return to this lifestyle as an adult?
Kago has not grown up in my eyes at all, and every thing she has done so far just keeps proving that to me. I wish she'd disappear, keep what little dignity she still has left, and enjoy her life out of the public eye.
I think working with Sammo Hung in a Hong Kong action flick is definitely a step in the right direction.
And I don't think we've seen the best she can do. We all know she already has talent, based only on her years working for Hello! Project.
No need for her to disappear...again...she's trying to reestablish herself is all & there's nothing wrong with the way she's going about it.
She's come forth with her problems and survived and she's got the strength to continue to try to entertain people.
And, to tell you the truth, even if she went full blown nude, I would have no real problem with that (except as I mentioned, she should regain some flesh).
There is no indication that she is desperate for anything other than being willing to reenter show business.
Once again, I hope she succeeds.
If some of you choose to look down on some of her attempts, then that's the real sad part.
These photos are not "tame", although they aren't "semi-nude", either. I'm kind of surprised that it took this long for an H!P vet to go all high-profile trainwreck on us. Kago may be trying to "work her way back", but come on dude, this is pretty pathetic.
I will give you that she could do some things better, but "high-profile trainwreck"? Not even close.
