The reason why she became cautious about beauty
However, from 14 to 15 years old, I got more muscles and was in a better shape. I started to hear people tell me "You've grown a really feminine body!" and I thought "Okay, I'm at an age being chubby isn't forgiven anymore". There are many °C-ute outfits where we have to show our belly (laughs), but at this time there was an outfit for Buono!'s "Lady Panther" which showed my belly so much I thought "Isn't that a bikini?!". That made me realize, if my body is going to be shown that much, it would be a shame not to get in shape.
To stand on a stage, it's not only about your body. Your hairstyle and face expressions are also important. But if you don't stand on stage without any conviction, if you don't have confidence, you cannot look straight. I tried to motivate myself for lives by thinking "I want to have confidence in myself!", "I hate the me of now!", "I want to change!". I wanted to become somebody who isn't afraid to show herself to others, and I thought that if I continued to not to anything like I was, it wouldn't be good. At first I just had this "I ate too much yesterday so let's not eat too much today" type of consciousness. Also, my mom was preparing my meals.
