Insane Hikki Fan
?Make your someday, your everyday?.... For Utada 2010 is the year to bring clarity and vision, and do just that...
Through 2007 to early 2008 Utada was finishing Heart Station and recording TiTo, released March 2009, there was little time for Hikki to take a breath between the two. A interesting point, highlighted earlier, an inkling or a first indication around the time of TiTo?s early promotion that Utada had consciously come to a decision, to have clear perspectives in respect to public life, and private life, the direction Utada wanted to go in, experiences yet to happen in her life, new ideas not connected to music to explore, what?s working or not working , directions for work- life, brought to a more stable footing, so by Winter 2010 Utada plans to have top and tailed all professional commitments, personally and contractually......
To achieve this certain opportunities must present themselves, to have outstanding contractual commitments remaining with EMI would ultimately undermine Utada?s vision and planning, and the considerable financial issues surrounding covenants EMI equity fund management must endure has fashioned the preverbal ?fork in the road?....
Utada: ?I didn't like it just to hide without showing up in front of my fans, and to jump into "human activities" with no regrets, I'm gonna go on full-throttle to do music activities till the end of this year!?.... also... ?I can focus on "human activities" with an easy mind thinking they will wait for my return, believing me? and finally... ?I guess each one of you has a different impression on my decision, but please believe me and wait for my return. I have no idea how long it gonna be - 2 years or 5 years, but I shall return, more matured. Give me some time?. .....
This change of heart presents new opportunities for Utada and Utadanet alike, to celebrate and reflect on Utada?s career, to be happy for Utada.... so to be speculative around Utada?s announcement is a natural response. Utada has pondered-reflected on certain career decisions, and life experiences her Mother has had to make, and ultimately having to endure as a Professional Enka performer/ musician. Utada?s Father has managed Hikki?s career path effectively enough to avoid these pitfalls.
It is scintillating coincidence indeed that Mum retired professionally at 28, how much did this effect Hikki? .....As an only child with parents both committed professionals in the music industry, both determinedly cosseting and nurturing, devoting time and resource into creating the environment that produced Utada songwriter, musician, and ultimately superstar... ?I've always worked on music ever since I was 15, spent my life overprotected by people around, so that "Utada Hikaru" can stick to music?....
