When I first saw this “Japanese Singer” the first thing I thought of was the movie Simone, it was a favorite of mine for a long time, I even went out and bought the DVD. I don’t know how many times I have watched it, but I know the dialog. 🙂
It was basically about a guy who made up a singer “Simone”, computer programmed, and not real, but she became a big hit. Simone was released in 2002 there is a preview of the movie here. Or for those that are Interested you can watch the movie online here. You can understand why I thought of this movie.
She looked like the picture perfect pop star, but Japanese singing sensation Aimi Eguchi wasn’t even real.
The young starlet was a hoax – she was computer generated from composite pictures of six of the most attractive members of the band AKB48. Read more in the Courier Mail.
Watch the video all the way through, they do show you how it was done.
