UPDATE: Shoko Nakagawa fractures tailbone


Not many stars can make light of their personal situation, especially if it has to do with fracturing her tailbone, but that is what Shoko Nakagawa did.

On her blog after her performance in Osaka, Shokotan had an emergency x-ray that showed that she fractured a bone and is in severe pain when she rolls over it because it’s not something she can be fixed that easily.  But despite the pain that she may be feeling, she is going to continue and perform, as her fans help her overcome the pain she is feeling.



Shokotan has uploaded images on her blog of her having to go through injections in order to prepare for her next live event.  Hopefully she can do it!

Matsumura Sayuri appears on Music Station after Bunshun video is posted


It has been another difficult week for Matsumura Sayuri.  As the Nogizaka46 talent made her tearful apology a week ago, the tabloid Bunshun refuted the apology by posting a video.  Also, outting two more Nogizaka46 members, Yamato Rina for staying overnight at a male model’s home and Hatanaka Seira going to a celebrity bar (she is underage).

The Bunshun video of Matsumura was leaked on YouTube and shows Matsumura and the Young Jump editor together, holding hands and kissing in public:

But also featured audio recording capturing the two in a conversation, which refutes what Matsumura said in her apology.

Recently, Nogizaka46 was on “Music Station” to promote their latest single and while everyone was laughing and smiling to the camera, Matsumura stayed in the back corner, not in her usual enthusiastic self and often not looking at the camera.
