Duet 08.2012 - Kakkoii NEWS [Translation]

Duet 08.2012 - Kakkoii NEWS




KOYAMA

-The last time you've been really cool.
Basically I never think that I'm cool, but maybe I am...when I bully myself (lol). For example, when I force myself to do the laundry also if I came back from work totally exhausted. I may be able to fall asleep in 3 seconds if I touch the bed but I start cleaning the house or go to the conbini to do groceries. I've started living alone since few time so I really want to do it properly. Then, when I bully myself in the gym, trying to overcome my limits of tiredness! My personal trainer guides me well in this. He incites me "Koyama-san, this is good! You're so cool!". I know he has to say that but I always go "Really?!" and gets very fired up! Doing this after the training my muscles really pop out, looking at them I think "It's working!" (lol). I like to think "I was able to do all this today so I will tomorrow too!!". I want to use all my energies to the maximum before going to sleep. It's like, bullying myself I can win! (lol)

-Cool NEWS!
I think that NEWS' coolness is that we know pain. We've been at the very bottom so we're full of thankfulness for each and every job, the fighting spirit that makes us say "Let us try to do it!" is different. When you lose your self-confidence and know your weakness, you become stronger to overcome all that, right? Right now we're resolute, we want to do all in our way. Lately the staff often tell us "You're really serious, you're so cool now!" and I think "Yes, we finally became a serious group!". Then, Tegoshi's speech is always cool. I mean, he can say "I'm self-confident" with a face that really express confidence (lol). His words are absolutely powerful. Inside the group he's like Honda in the Japanese soccer team, he's always attacking and going forward, he can drag us all.

[Koyama I love you T_T Really, this touched my heart ♥]

-The coolness of Chankapaana?
Thinking to NEWS actual conditions you would expect a strong, meaningful song but actually we wanted to attack. Chankapaana is the song with which we'll shoot our goal (lol). There are no half measures, it's cool because it shakes you off. Since the song is meant to attack, the PV, the dance, the costumes, the lyrics, everything is so forcedly cool that they're quite embarrassing! Look forward to some narcissist NEWS (lol). Chankapaana is a coined word for "beloved person". We wanted many people to be attracted by the title wondering what it means, moreover once you listen to it you can't forget it anymore. Anyway, finally we've been able to bring our fans who always waited for us to a happy world, I'm so glad!

[The first line!! It's exactly what I thought and what I wished for their new single! So glad they did this choice! ♥]

MASSU

-The last time you've been really cool.
Me being cool? It never happens...Ah, when I was at home exercising to play guitar for the butai I saw myself sitting holding the guitar and I thought "The guitar looks good on me!" (lol). The first time G2 passed the guitar to me I was wearing a leather jacket, holding it I felt like a real rock musician. I ended up to like it a little too much, it's embarrassing. Moreover back then I had no idea how to play a guitar (lol). I don't know yet if I'll go on playing guitar, I will think about it later when the butai ends. Lately I spend a lot of time on the waiting room of the theaters. The speakers to listen to music, the soft mat, the kinda manly room fragrance, the magazines, the costumes, the colorful noren...I made my waiting room a fashionable, comfortable place, there I can relax.

[Random random~~]

-Cool NEWS!
NEWS coolness is that we don't try too hard to be cool. It's a "we're cool but we're so cool to not show much our cool sides" (lol). Anyway we started as 9 and after many things happened we became 4, I want people to think "They decided to go on the same! Isn't this good? They're cool!". I'm the first one to think that we're strong because so many things happened to us. All the members are true pro. Lately all of us are taking care of our bodies a lot. We train our muscles, we think about our nutrition. I think that men who can control themselves are cool. Right now I'm working for the butai but I'm being careful to my meals, my sleep, the care of my throat, I exercise, I'm doing my best so that my conditions will be the same for every stage.

-The coolness of Chankapaana?
This time we'll dance a lot, the steps are really cool...but a kind of lame coolness. I think that it's so cool that it feels like we're not attacking being "100% cool" (lol). Me too, I don't want to be "The cool one", I prefer to stay a little away from a full score, I like it like this. I love the song, I think we did a great and interesting job for our comeback song. The costumes are a must. Chankapaana is a song that could have many colors, black, red or something more colorful. This time we were unanimous to go with white. NEWS had a white image since the beginning so it also have the meaning of return to the origins, we wanted to cherish our NEWS=White title. Anyway, I can't wait to five this song to all the fans!

[If he says another time "kakkoii" I kick him XDD]

SHIGE

-The last time you've been really cool.
I finally bought a Leica! For me a Leica camera always had the image of a camera for real adults. Was it during the first year of high school? In a TV show there was the project of taking pictures freely. There I first saw a Leica. Back then I was a kid, my only experience in photography was with an instant camera. With instant cameras you couldn't shoot anything in the dark, remember? But the Leica they gave to me had a flash and could cut off the darkness, it took such cool pictures. Thinking about it now, it's obvious that it was thanks to the cameraman who did all the setting of the camera for me. After that, also when I started taking photos, I never touched a Leica anymore. Anyway it passed such a long time since that first shocking encounter, I'm about to turn 25, I thought it was ok to have one now, so I bought it. The weight, the feeling, it's so good. It's all I wanted. Me, holding a Leica, so cool!!

[He made me feel soooo old talking about instant cameras XD And again with his Leica, I hope he'll show his cool self holding it soon! :D]

-Cool NEWS!
Between the members I think that Tegoshi is really cool when he clearly says "NO!". He has his own, defined thoughts, he's absolutely straight with them. I think this is true sincerity. I have my own opinions but when I explain them I often give up. That's why I think that Tegoshi going through his ideas is really cool.

-The coolness of Chankapaana?
How's the new song? Good? This time we chose a song with a strong impact, like it was for "Koi no ABO". Honestly when I heard it the first time I half laughed (lol). Anyway I thought it was a good thing. The title "Chankapaana" leaves a big impression since you can't understand it. From the aura you understand it talks about a girl but nobody ever heard of that...It's difficult but it has a good sense of language. Such an impact is important. The lyrics are an incentive. It's been around 2 years we don't release a single, we grew up, it seems we can't do something like this now. There are some embarrassing lines in it though...Aren't I really bad at this? Anyway the other 3 were recording all excited (lol). I asked continously "Are we doing this for real?" until the end...Well, when I tried to sing it was really funny though! The theme of the song is a "one night love" so we matched a cool, prince-like image wearing all white costumes. We'll sing with a stand-mic, it will be a unique performance, a must-watch. It'll be nice to get excited with it during the Summer lives. Moreover my solo song is a punk-rock song. This time I wrote only the lyrics, the theme are vampires. The contents will be sad, painful but with a little humour, stimulating. I also challenged to rap. Ne, doesn't it sound cool?

[OK. First. Shige's awkwardness about Chankapaana's lyrics. I WAS WAITING FOR THIS. XDDD
Second. OMG SHIGE'S SOLO IS PUNK-ROCK. OMG IT'S A SAD SONG. OMG HE WILL RAP. *Flails hard *She's not even ashamed *She literally jumped around her room *TMI *Ok I stop this  AAAAAAAA D: I WANNA HEAR!! But I also wanna wait my single to arrive...どうしよう!!]


TEGOSHI

-The last time you've been really cool.
Some time ago I played futsal after a lot of time, in just one match I scored 20 points. The cooler moment was when I scored crossing the whole field dribbling 4 people all together! Isn't it cool? I think it's amazing~♪ I couldn't play for a while because of the pain in my legs. Anyway I was in perfect shape, it felt so good!! I couldn't play for around a month, in the meantime I always trained my upper body an my trunk. I think it was thanks to this. Anyway I'm not done yet. Yesterday I ate with my friends from the Japanese soccer team, Nagatomo has a 8-pack! If you have a 6-pack is already cool enough but he has more until the solar plexus! I was shocked. I don't want to lose...but I don't know why I'm even competing here (lol). Anyway there's no way I can lose!!  

-Cool NEWS!
All the members are cool. Until now we've been hurted so many times, anyway we always stood up. Is there something better than this? I'm thankful to all NEWS members. Stability is really not my thing. A smooth sailing, being always too happy is boring. You can grow up if you have hurdles to overcome, everytime you stumble you confirm who's really supporting you. The importance of fans and their warm voices, they echoed into our hearts. None of us would ever think "It's obvious that we have fans". We live in a world where it's easy to misunderstand such things, but we don't. We're fully aware. That's why we're all cool.  

[This is rare...I love you Tegoshi too!! TAT ♥♥]

-The coolness of Chankapaana?
Not only our new single, all the songs we recorded are absolutely cool! The lyrics of Chankapaana are a little adultish, right? Recording it was super funny! We got really excited about the lyrics~ This time we sang imagining its world view. We sang those hot things with passione, being moody picturing a beloved girl, but at the same time it's sad. You don't meet often people to whom you can think in this way. Also "Full Swing" is a very good song. The first time I heard it I had goosebumbs for the emotion. The lyrics say "Stand up, go ahead", you could think it was directed to us. I want to cherish that song. My solo "Addict" is good too. I completed it all by myself, lyrics, melody, arrangement and chorus. I did it with all myself asking advices to pro musicians. In the lyrics there are a girl and a boy who have a deep relationship, the guy's really into the girl...but when he's completely "poisoned" by her she goes to the next guy. I wanted to write it focusing on the real suffering of the guy, I could write only during the night (lol). It was fun to compose the song, I want to do it next time too!


I apologize in advance for my flailing comments.
This interview was really cool, because NEWS are totally, 100% cool and NEWS fans are all cool so in general everything's cool and we love it like this even if we're all lame cool. X°D  Really ignore me X°D
Enjoy! 8D
