No, Uncle Johnny. This is not for you. But you are free to read it. Douzou.
I will try to keep this short because I don’t believe in prolonging anything, unlike you.
When are you going to address the rumors about you dating and getting married soon?
The Japanese tabloids have been putting us through the wringer in the name of sales and the “truth” for the last two years. Two years and yet, no word from you or from your revered agency. If you think by keeping silent it will just go away, well, you’re wrong. If you are keeping silent to protect the stakes involved i.e. Arashi and your fanbase, that is understandable. But letting this drag on for two years? Are you trying to exhaust everyone so that by the time you address this issue finally, no one cares about what the truth is?
But what is the truth? Celebrities may not owe their public the truth but would you rather that the speculations continue and let everyone have their own version of YOUR truth?
I am under no illusion that you or the other four will stay single the rest of your lives. As your fan, I wish you happiness. I may not agree with your decisions including who you date or who you marry but it’s your life. Whether fans accept or abandon you is par for the course but life will go on.
And should you decide to be man enough in addressing this, I just have one request though. Please do not do it during an Arashi concert out of respect for the four and the rest of the fandom. This is your personal life. Do not drag Arashi into it, onegaishimasu.
