Currently living in a two-room apartment with her daughter, she spoke to us on the topic of living on part-time wages. “I buy most things from the 100-yen store. All my daughter’s toys are hand-me-downs from friends. When it was really bad, I would wash my hair with baking soda. If I really cut down on the food expenses, I can get by with 10,000 yen a month.“
On her sudden retirement: “My 12-year-old mind simply couldn’t deal with being thrust into such a hectic environment. I wasn’t able to sing like I wanted to; move like I wanted to… I just couldn’t keep up.“
She later quit high school, having become stricken with social anxiety. “Even after my retirement and going back to normal life, random people in the train or at the convenience store would recognize me as being a “national idol” and chase me around. I thus became something of a shut-in.“
Speaking softly, she looks back on her past: “I think that if it wasn’t for singing, I wouldn’t have ended up like this. If only it wasn’t for music, I would’ve had a happier life.“
She later went on to restart her musical activities thanks to a work acquaintance. She rediscovered the joy of singing in front of an audience. She now sings in a band she formed six years ago, while also working as a voice trainer. She finishes, smiling: “It’s the times when my singing actually reaches someone. That’s what keeps me going.“

That’s the unavoidable price of fame.
It simply can not be helped.
