One of my favorite J-Rock artists is Gackt Camui, who has one amazing voice and pretty much reminds me of the old 80’s ballads, but better. He originally came out of the visual kei bands but has since led a brilliant career of singing and acting. However, I’m not really sure what he was thinking with naming his latest album Are You “Fried Chickenz”?? which puts together some of his latest hits from different albums. Apparently there was even a tour in August called Yellow Fried Chickenz. The last thing I want to do is think of him as Colonel Sanders, so I’m curious as far as why this album is even named as such. Drunken stupor perhaps?
In any case, it seems that Gackt is also making his move towards Hollywood. He stars along side Josh Hartnett in Bunraku, which was featured at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin and San Diego Comic-Con. But that’s not all! There are several other A list names on the cast, including Demi Moore, Woody Harrelson, and Ron Perlman.
And as long as Gackt doesn’t don one of these costumes, I’ll probably go check the movie out. Oh gawd. What were you thinking with that album name?
