” During an event, held September 28, to launch and promote her latest movie Closed Note, Erika looked extremely annoyed about something…and took it out on everyone else! Sporting an ugly green dress, awful makeup and some strange looking hair, Erika kept her arms crossed a lot of the time and muttered three little sentences throughout the whole event. When asked what her favorite scene was, Erika replied “I didn’t have one” in a very rude and touchy tone.She was also asked whether she was going to take anything away from this experience and she replied “No”. She continued this behaviour throughout the event and looked like she couldn’t wait to leave. She’s been slammed by celebrities and fans alike. Wada Akiko has labeled her as “unprofessional” and “full of herself” and although she has always been known for her diva-like attitude, this incident really took it to the next level. This behaviour has crushed fans with many feeling like their idol has turned her back on them. Erika issued an apology on her homepage on October 2 stating that she knew what she did was wrong and that she felt like she betrayed her fans. She also promised to learn from this experience. “
Well, this is bad bad for Erika! I really like her and I think she’s a very talented person. Erika is facing a huge attack from the Japanese media & newspapers, the Web is full of topics about this strange incident and she’s been trashed everywhere for this attitude.
Career wise, Erika is planning to release a new single by the end of next November, the single is entitled 「Destination Nowhere」, ironically, Nowhere might be the destination of her career! Erika has already lost her contract with Subaru and I don’t know if this is gonna be the first of a chain!
It should be interesting to see the Japanese reaction, will her single top the charts like her 1st two did?! No one knows really!
