Why doesn’t Kazuya Kamenashi want to join twitter or start a blog? (translation)

Shueisha Magazine News

MAQUIA 2011 June edition (went on sale April 23 2011)

As the special baseball supporter, KAT-TUN’s Kazuya Kamenashi gives a fan’s point-of-view of baseball during Nihon TV’s Tokyo Giants matches, “Dramatic Game 1844”.  But the man at the centre of attention laughs it off.

“After I started this job (in the entertainment industry), now I can’t go outside without wearing sunglasses.  I wonder why, it’s not like people have caught me and I’ve been in danger many times,” he said.

He explained things to us a bit more.

“I think it’s probably because at work I want to be seen as much as anyone else, but I don’t want people to see what I look like from day to day.  I hardly go to places like parties and clubs where there are lots of people and I try to avoid meeting people who can’t be honest with me.  These days so many celebrities have blogs or they’re on twitter.  They use words and photos to talk about what they’re doing every day in detail, but I don’t get it.

“I think that if someone working in the entertainment industry talks too much about what they do in their private life, isn’t that like a magician telling people how their trick works before they do it? (laughs)  Having said that, I don’t think anyone’s lying.  I don’t think they’re deliberately trying to keep a secret or creating their own character.

“To put it simply, I’m happy to talk about my views on relationships, but I wouldn’t talk about the relationships I’ve been in up to now.  I don’t think I need to talk about it.  But I don’t have any clear lines drawn between what I can and can’t talk about because sometimes I think it’s important to talk about your own experience when you want to get a real message across.”

Kamenashi-san went on to talk about the time he thought, “what’s my secret?”.  He said during a run at night to Tokyo Tower, he had looked up to see the moon covered up by clouds.

“There’s something beautiful about how it’s hidden.  Maybe people and clouds are beautiful because you can’t see everything,” he said.
