Gearing up for the release of her comeback album, Utada Hikaru sits down with Yahoo! Japan for her first interview since her hiatus at 2010. She describes the creative process of creating her comeback album both from a general perspective and a track-by-track perspective.
- Prior to going on hiatus, she went full-throtle on her musical activities because she knew that her hiatus could last for two to five years.
- Believes that the loss of a mother forces you to grow up, and she wasn't confident in herself since her mother's death until recently.
- Interviewer/writer points out that the album is undoubtedly inspired by her late mother, down to her hairstyle.
- Album covers various events during her hiatus (e.g., mother's death, marriage, becoming a mother)
- Giving Japanese titles to all of her tracks was a very deliberate artistic decision.
- Utada Hikaru also had control over which photographer she worked with for the album cover.
Track by Track
- Hikki describes it as a dancable track that condenses her hiatus into a single song.
- The song basically lets her fans know that she's fine.
- Finds the writing process of a song of this nature refreshing.
- Showcases her growth/maturity since her last Japanese album (Heart Station)
Ore no Kanajo (My Girlfriend)
- Her most mature Japanese song to date; described as not a PG-13 song, but a Rated R song.
- Felt that it was taboo to talk about her sex life due to debuting in Japan at a young age.
- Even though she alluded to sex on her English songs/albums, she was never able to directly express it the way she can now.
- Admits that singing about sex in English was a crutch for her to avoid talking about her sex life.
- The song contains French lyrics, and this use of French inspired the album title
a single tear drop rolls off of a proud shiina ringo's face.
Hanataba wo Kimi ni (A Boquet for you)
- Was released as a digital single for her official retun from hiatus.
- Positive reception to the song influenced the direction of the album.
- Shares sentiment of international fans' outrage at how difficult it is to see the music video (Official source is restricted to Japan). According to a tweet, even Hikki isn't able to see it at the time of responding to a fan. Said music video can be seen here.
Ningyo (Mermaid; oop, I mistranslated it as "doll" in a previous post. I should pay more attention to the kanji and not the romaji next time.)
- Interviewer considers it a rare song for Utada.
- A simple acoustic song written after Utada Hikaru's mother died.
- Was unsure if she could write music again after her mother's death.
- Inspired to pick up a guitar, and the melody came to her.
- However, the lyrics didn't come to her until she saw the Hanataba wo Kimi ni music video produced by Keiko Tsuji (Paper cutter artist).
Kouya no Ookami (Wolf of the Wilderness)
- Inspired by Steppenwolf, a novel written by German-Swiss writer Herman Hesse.
- The protagonist of the novel deals with his earthly, humanistic nature and his wolf-like, aggressive nature; then, his life changes when he meets a woman opposite of him.
- Noticable breathing sounds in the track; expression through breathing is said to be a reoccurring minor theme in the album.
Sakura Nagashi (Flowing Cherry Blossoms)
- Sentimental requiem for life and its beauty.
- Wrote and composed the song despite being on hiatus due to her apprecation for the Neon Genesis Evangelion movie series.
Directed by Barry Jenkins, Moonlight is a three-part narrative spanning the childhood, adolescence, and adulthood of an African-American man who survives Miami's drug-plagued inner city, finding love in unexpected places and the possibility of change within himself.
MOONLIGHT is also a devastatingly beautiful love story. to put in the most reductive terms possible, think CAROL by way of Frank Ocean.— david ehrlich (@davidehrlich) September 3, 2016
MOONLIGHT has a third act that's as exquisitely observed, filmed, and acted as anything in years. Stunning— Richard Lawson (@rilaws) September 3, 2016
Moonlight just totally floored me. It's one of the most beautifully made films about being a gay man that I've ever seen #Telluride— Benjamin Lee (@benfraserlee) September 3, 2016
Potent, beautiful filmmaking/script. And holy jeeeeeeezus Naomie Harris (a standout) is a fierce, heartrending force of nature in MOONLIGHT— JASON (@MichaelNotCera) September 3, 2016
MOONLIGHT is one of the best movies of the year. Astonishingly beautiful and intimate. #TellurideFilmFestival— erickohn (@erickohn) September 3, 2016
Moonlight - An exceptional work of cinematic beauty, telling a vital story of humanity. Triptych storytelling done right, immensely moving.— Alex Billington (@firstshowing) September 3, 2016
The PlayList/Gregory Ellwood: Like “Brokeback Mountain” a decade ago, “Moonlight” is a piece of art that will transform lives long after it leaves theaters. Those who will be changed by the picture may not see it on the big screen. They may even have to see it in secret. But when they do. Whey they watch Chiron have that first kiss, when he can be himself for just an instance in a world that oppresses him? It will be everything. [A]
Variety/Peter Debruge: “Black” isn’t just a race, community, or color, but one of three names by which a sexually conflicted young South Florida man allows himself to be called in a film that’s ultimately about taking control of one’s own identity. That’s exactly what Jenkins himself is doing by delivering a film so firmly committed to capturing the black experience, resulting in a socially conscious work of art as essential as it is insightful. A natural extension of his garrulous San Francisco-set debut, “Medicine for Melancholy,” the director’s beautifully nuanced, subtext-rich second feature is no less intellectually engaged, but proves far more trusting in audiences’ ability to read between the lines.
Hollywood Reporter/David Rooney: The Bottom Line: Glows likes its title... It would be tempting to call Moonlight an instant landmark in queer black cinema, if that didn't imply that the experience it portrays will speak only to a minority audience. Instead, this is a film that will strike plangent chords for anyone who has ever struggled with identity, or to find connections in a lonely world. It announces Jenkins as an important new voice. [Note: Review is incredibly spoiler heavy]
The Wrap/Sam Fragoso: “Moonlight” is not a public service announcement or a cry for help. It doesn’t fetishize Chiron’s pain, as so many pieces of contemporary American cinema do. It’s a humanist film; it’s about people, and it’s got a pulse. It presents characters as idiosyncratic, domineering, but mostly fearful — timid creatures ambling through life in the hopes of finding refuge.
Screen Daily/Tim Grierson: An indelible portrait of an imperilled life, Moonlight is quietly devastating in its depiction of masculinity, race, poverty and identity. Writer-director Barry Jenkins builds on the promise of his intimate 2008 romantic drama Medicine For Melancholy to examine a young African-American in danger of being dragged down by the destructive forces around him — and how, by embracing his true self, he may discover contentment. Ambitious in scope but precise in its execution, this deceptively small-scale character piece reverberates with compassion and insight.
Tis lit, ONTDers!

You can stream Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight over at Apple Music. Sorry Spotify subscribers. THEY HATE US! But since this album is so fucking good, maybe you should think about spending some $$ for it.

Earlier today Lil Wayne published these two tweets:
I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I'm dun— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) September 3, 2016
ain't lookin for sympathy, just serenity— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) September 3, 2016
Some fans interpreted as a retirement announcement and others worried that he was suicidal and saying he was done with life. Lil Wayne then posted this:
I'm good y'all don't trip— Lil Wayne WEEZY F (@LilTunechi) September 3, 2016

Yesterday the internet dragged Lena for saying this about Odell Beckham Jr. Then she posted this today:
Here's the caption:
I owe Odell Beckham Jr an apology. Despite my moments of bravado, I struggle at industry events (and in life) with the sense that I don't rep a certain standard of beauty and so when I show up to the Met Ball surrounded by models and swan-like actresses it's hard not to feel like a sack of flaming garbage. This felt especially intense with a handsome athlete as my dinner companion and a bunch of women I was sure he'd rather be seated with. But I went ahead and projected these insecurities and made totally narcissistic assumptions about what he was thinking, then presented those assumptions as facts. I feel terrible about it. Because after listening to lots of valid criticism, I see how unfair it is to ascribe misogynistic thoughts to someone I don't know AT ALL. Like, we have never met, I have no idea the kind of day he's having or what his truth is. But most importantly, I would never intentionally contribute to a long and often violent history of the over-sexualization of black male bodies- as well as false accusations by white women towards black men. I'm so sorry, particularly to OBJ, who has every right to be on his cell phone. The fact is I don't know about his state of mind (I don't know a lot of things) and I shouldn't have acted like I did. Much love and thanks, Lena
Cheese Larson posted this picture Friday:
I touched a Dolphins belly while sporting a trucker hat in 2004. #noregrets #fbf EDIT: I do not support animal cruelty.
and right away she started receiving a flood of comments from people admonishing her for seeming to support the captivity of dolphins
Yo - it's me again. I posted a photo previously that encapsulated a silly moment in my weird life. I forgot that through social media and random interviews you do not know all the facets of me and what my concerns are. We should be concerned about the well being of all animals. Yes, Dolphins. Along with every other creature. There are problems with animals in captivity. There are problems with animals living in the wild. It has always been a priority of mine to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves. I apologize if the photo appeared to endorse animal cruelty. I don't believe any living thing deserves miss treatment. In the comments section feel free to discuss your thoughts, concerns, articles ANYTHING that can turn this into a moment of education for myself all who are interested. We gotta remember that we will make mistakes but we can learn from them, together. Much love.

Britney SLAMS MTV After 'Humiliating' VMAs Disaster - Radar Online | Radar Online https://t.co/V5WbMaCd27— ♥️ (@JustErinRobbins) 2 September 2016
-According to the source Britney feels like MTV misled her and she won't ever do the VMAs again.
-Britney is upset that MTV never mention Beyonce would perform or have such a strong performance, or that Britney would perform after Beyonce.
-MTV also gave Beyonce 15 minutes and Britney only 4 minutes.
-Britney and her team thought she would be the headliner but after the show everyone was talking about Beyonce, not Britney.
-“Everyone in Britney’s camp was really quite blindsided by Beyonce’s performance. Hardly anyone knew that Beyonce was going to be the main event. Britney is saying she will never do the VMAs again.”

KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, who has a very solid track record when it comes to Apple product rumors, has released his most detailed research report yet ahead of Wednesday's iPhone 7 launch.
-No major design change, they're saving that for the 10th anniversary iPhone
- Earpiece receiver to become a speaker with the addition of a new audio amplifier. The change would provide enough separation to allow for stereo sound.
- Pressure-sensitive click-less home button
-Storage capacities of 32 GB, 128 GB, and 256 GB
- Five color options including silver, gold, and rose gold, along with a "dark black" replacing the usual Space Gray and a glossy "piano black".
- Improved IPX7 water resistance (1M deep)
-Dual-lens rear camera on the iPhone 7 Plus. Both lenses will be 12-megapixel, but one will be a wide-angle camera with larger pixel sizes, a 6P lens, and optical image stabilization, while the second will be a telephoto lens with smaller pixel sizes and a 5P lens.
-3GM of RAM for the + Only
-No Headphone jack, they will include earbuds with lightning connector and an adapter. Audio through the lightning port is said to have a much superior sound.

Britney Spears is new at Number 2 in the UK with her ninth album Glory. The entry marks a fifth Number 2 album for the superstar, following Baby One More Time (1999), Oops! I Did It Again (2000), Greatest Hits – My Prerogative (2004) and Blackout (2007).
Certain Women, the latest film from acclaimed director Kelly Reichardt, depicts "the lives of three women [as they] intersect in small-town America, where each is imperfectly blazing a trail." The film, based on Maile Meloy's collection of short stories "Both Ways Is the Only Way I Want It," stars Kristen Stewart, Michelle Williams, and Laura Dern. Certain Women premiered at Sundance earlier this year and is scheduled to be screened at TIFF and NYFF. The film is set to be released on October 14, 2016 by IFC Films.
