Music Monday: Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

Have you had the chance to listen to Kyary Pamyu Pamyu? Beginning her career in 2011, Kyary has been dubbed the “Queen of J-pop” by a variety of sources, although such a title has been controversial among more “traditional” J-pop fans. Starting her career as a decora model in Harajuku, Kyary released her first single PonPonPon in 2011, gaining millions of global youtube views. Her style is very different from most other Jpop artists, and revolves around cuteness and randomness. Because of this, Kyary has also been compared as the Lady Gaga or Katy Perry of Japan. Her music, and especially her music videos, is something best experienced personally than read about, as both her lyrics and visuals can be completely unpredictable. At the moment, she has released three albums.
