Mika Nakashima

Mika Nakashima (born February 19, 1983) is a Japanese singer and actress.Mika rose to fame with her 2002 album TRUE. That year, she received the “New Artist of the Year” award at the Japan Gold Disc Awards, “Best New Artist of the Year” at the All Japan Request Awards, and “Best New Artist of the Year” at the 44th Japan Record Awards.

She starred in the 2005 movie Nana, which was adapted from the manga series of the same name. Mika played the role of Nana Osaki, an independent 20-year-old punk vocalist determined to become successful without the help of her ex-boyfriend Ren, who had been offered a position in an up-and-coming band.

Mika sang “Glamorous Sky,” one of the theme songs for the movie. This song became the best-selling single by a female artist that year.

I looked for a good music video of hers to post which would display her at her best (appearancewise), deciding on “Seppun,” below. I had a very hard time finding photos of Mika in which she is wearing tighter clothing (or she is posing in better lighting), which would explain why none of the pictures I’ve chosen to display below are very telling at all about her figure, but they are the best that I could dig up.

  1. So in spite of the androgynous connotations and the strident denials of homosexual tendencies, you’re still calling Christine Chris? I guess it’s true what they say about people who deny homosexuality too strongly. 😉

  2. dr. lee, don’t fall for it! obviously he’s just getting back at me because i outted his homosexuality

    who’s the gay one now?! 😀 😀 😀

    lawboy i’m not gonna stop calling you gay until you stop calling me chris. the war is on!

  3. Actually Christine, I was referring to LawBoy’s own denials. 😉 Still, it’s better than calling you Christ, although I guess you may not necessarily agree. 🙂

  4. This convo is a bit gay. Did ya know that being gay is a serious sin?

    Anyway, I really liked this youtube song above. She must be a good artist really, to have won all those awards.

    She is ok looking, not stunning, but good looks and I bet she looks good without makeup. I like her eye expressions. Too bad we don’t have her in bikini, that’s right. 🙂

  5. i think that when she isn’t smiling, she looks very placid. she seems like the kind of girl who would coolly lounge on a barstool watching the rest of the crowd on the dancefloor, and not feel very bothered by the fact that she wasn’t dancing or interacting with everyone else.

    i noticed that in her photoshoots she is very stylish, but her stylistic choices are very sophisticated – cutting-edge but not too trendy. she actually gave me the idea of getting coloured contacts a few years back, but i’ve since ditched them.

  6. lawboy, you can e-mail me by looking me up in the members list. i can send you my myspace page that way
