According to http://tw.news.yahoo.com/article/url/d/a/090330/78/1gx9r.html"Liberty Times (Taiwan Newspaper)". Utada has written her thoughts about her last marriage in her new book "Ten " and "Sen " (Which refers to "Dot" and "Line", like the lyrics of Deep River)

Here's the article translated by me:

"To celebrate her 10th anniversary in music business,Japanese Pop Diva UTADA has released her biography, which covers her thoughts from where she was a 16 y/o girl, to her divorce with the director. Surprisingly, she wrote in her book the reason for the divorce was that she felt like she could hardly breathe.


Utada was troubled for being rich
Because her parents also were in the music business,she was growing up in the studio . She described that it kinda was like a curse also becoming a singer. Being in this business for 10 years, she has sold over 250 million albums, and admits feeling troubled for having so much money.

As regarding her marriage, Utada, who grew up in a complicated family, admits that she wasn't good in showing her real emotion to others. After her marriage, she felt like her husband was like a crazy reporter, always trying to know her feelings or what she was thinking, which made her feel she couldn't breathe, and thus lead to the divorce.

Utada has released her new English album "This is the One". When being asked by a reporter, she mentioned that the divorce gave her a new opportunity to see herself from another angle."

Pretty interesting, hugh?

52 million...i guess it's worldwide...or maybe in japan only...i dunno it can be both or vice versa...

those were pretty interesting facts...i think she already said that in her musica interview 2007 i guess...she said that kiriya is the one who truly reaches out to her...who tries to understand her, finds out what she likes and dislikes, stuffs like that...

she's very honest in saying that she's an introvert and she's having hard times opening to other people her feelings and maybe in her books, we can understand her more...i'm not hoping for an international release cause that's really far from reality so maybe someone can scan the pictures and translate the text to us, that would be a good idea...=P
