A little bit of salt, grape juice and avocados…. add in a few pickled plums and wrap carefully in melonpan ^^*. Did I just invent the “Chalupa” “Paru~pa?” (*≧▽≦)！
Seriously though as a Paruru~♡ adorer/ fan/ obsess~or (think that’s an actual word! ?? \(^o^)/) I think even if you’re not particularly fond of her demeanor with her at times off-beat remarks, quirkiness or her well publicized distant attitude when it comes to meet & greet events…. her tell it like it is approach should garner some appreciation. We for the most part love it whenever a celebrity expresses themselves in a non generic way showing us some real colors from within and with Paruru, when you consider her admitted “introverted” personality… perhaps even a bit of compassion may be warranted. Not to make excuses entirely for her past “ume~boshi~isms” of a social entity but on some levels I can totally relate. I grew up in my teens a very much introvert and you see while you’re living it in the then present it’s not something you’re totally aware of per se…. however now in hindsight this personality type by all means must be much more difficult to deal with when a celebrity status is intermingled, such is Paruru~♥ and her Paruru~isms ^^*. But now slowly but surely Paruru is changing her ‘ume~boshi~of~an~image”, just take for instance her General Election acceptance speeches over the past two years: Two years ago it was painfully awkward with a dousing of bluntness as if wrapped and topped with a bow as her then climbing in the ranks was met with a sense of her “ume~boshi~ness” (today’s made up word! \(^o^)/) all being “proven okay.” Fast forward to last year’s acceptance speech and a much humbled Paruru~♥ expressed how she “couldn’t go on” the same way, additionally openly acknowledging how her till then negative attitude was impacting fans (and I’d add media onlookers alike) and how she was now growing into a new chapter of herself. Whether you’ve gone through or are currently going through adolescence, it’s difficult enough on its own terms, now add in a life of growing up in front of the ever scrutinizing spotlight of celebrity life and today’s instant and all reaching social tech/media and there you have the recipe for an introvert’s worst nightmare (・д・`*)！！Still it’s no means for an excuse for the BIG PICTURE, but rather a food for thought inner discussion to deeply consider before you perhaps hit send on that next mean spirited comment you have aimed at her. ^^*
Now while I missed out on that Paruru Covergirl issue of “Soup” late last year…
..there was nooooooo way I was gonna miss out on this latest issue of FLASH which features a most adora~cute Paruru up front-center and mainly featured inside!!
I KNOW! you initially think!:
But sadly it’s not true (。ーωー。)笑！
Anyway, onto the FLASH issue! ^^*
I rather like this one above as it “clearly” says: “Mmm yup I know =)…”. And I sure do! Now imagine two introverted girls getting it* on…(^q^)! Just kidding!!! Hey stop imagining that*! Now stop it! (*´艸`) ！～！
And since “we’re” dreamin’ of Paruru I thought I’d include additional magazine scans I did awhile back but forgot to post here. YES!! this awesome issue of BOMB magazine features Paruru on its cover in all of her Paru~ru~ness!!!! Puzzled, sexy, unsure, afraid and afraid that she’s too adorable for your browser that is! You name it! Paruru’s got you covered herein and pink is ALWAYS best dontcha think? =):
And here this yesteryear issue of ENTAME (2015/7) also features Paruru as covegirl…. yup! you guessed it that my “secret” hobby is to collect as many Paruru magazine covers as I can! Σ(￣◇￣*)！！！
Oh! and here’s more from the FLASH “Paruru” issue which
