There ya go, straight from the horses' mouths so to speak. I personally have never believed even for one second that the usual idol rules ever applied to them.

Well, they've been saying this since 2008. It's not the first time...

But also, they do need to pay attention to the kind of music they're recording and playing live if they don't want people to have the wrong idea.

I've often thought that the band has one idea for what they are, and the record company a slightly different one...

LOL haruno. i never noticed that. oh well at least they never screwed up the other names.

actually i was rather pissed they chose to release their interview today. cos this newspaper have a music section every tuesday, they probably would have received more in depth coverage if it was released tomorrow. considering other japanese acts like flumpool, weaver and luna sea have been featured there before i don't understand why SCANDAL won't be featured there, when their popularity are at least on par with any of those featured there. damn newspaper focusing too much on kpop again; they have at least 1 kpop group on there every week.

I'm actually ambivalent about them being not that popular.
Sometimes I question myself why it makes me feel good when the group I love is also one that's popular/widely recognised. And deep down the answer is because I feel proud that my 'choice' is also recognised by others. But why should that matter? Then again, I've seen how popularity puts so much pressure on celebrities that they eventually succumb to changing their styles in hopes of gaining a wider audience and in turn, gaining more popularity. Yes, I am insinuating about certain other Asian groups.

For me, I wouldn't necessarily equate popularity with success, though I'm not insisting that everyone thinks popularity = success. I'm satisfied that these girls stay focused on producing good music, their own style of music that pleases their current fans and if others somehow stumble upon them, then good for the band and the new fans! I'm content with little coverage given to them in the mainstream press. Happy

Cool article. Was quite surprised when they said they listen to Metal music , but Rina does like Nao from Maximum the Hormone so it's obvious that she listens to them.
At least we get to know they're all single HAHA

^ what to do? Kpop ruling the country now. just gotta be thankful SCANDAL was still featured even in this era of Kpop domination. Straits Times didn't have anything at all.

I understand how you feel but IMO as a fan of Scandal we should just be grateful that they get the chance to be featured in an overseas article and most of all being "printed" is much more prestigious than being on an internet article.

I'm sure they do listen to some metal, but I agree with whoever said the reporter obviously cut their bait questions... I'm sure the question was something like "Do you guys ever listen to metal?" and the answer was where they said "we listen to a lot of different stuff", which seems like what they said first before saying "including metal, hard rock and other things".

You can look at their Twitter and kind of get an idea of who they like. Some of them are metal/hard rock artists, but then some of them are like, Adam Lambert, Girls Generation and the Jonas Brothers. (Seriously, those are three artists Haruna follows.) I've also seen where they said they like AKB48 and One Direction. So they definitely like some straight pop music.

They said they like One Direction....? Urm interview?

Yep, the girls do like a variety of music. Haruna likes mainstream things such as Justin Bieber, etc... Tomo and Mami do like the heavier stuff too; in the AM2 panel, they stated they liked RHCP and The Strokes. Rina likes a variety; she loves Taylor Swift, Maximum the Hormone, The Beatles, The Who etc... SCANDAL are actually great friends with AKB48. It's great that they do listen a lot of different music genres as it expands their knowledge and opinions in the music world. Happy

I don't think it's on YouTube - they just did a half hour thing on MTV Japan and from what I could get, one of the questions was something like "what are you listening to lately?" and Haruna said "One Direction". Of course, it provided a segue into a promo MTV then showed right after, but I don't think Haruna would have said it if she was embarrassed about it. You'd never get me to admit listening to Justin Bieber or something if you put me on a music show. I'd tell them to make their own promo!
