Utada got married y'all!!


MANILA – As promised, Japanese Utada Hikaru shared some photos of her wedding to Italian bartender Francesco Calliano last May 23.

On her official website, Utada posted four photos from her wedding, which was held in Polignano a mare in southern Italy.

One photo shows the Japanese singer wearing a kimono as she posed beside Calliano and another with her father and manager, Utada Teruzane.

According to reports from various Japanese news websites and blogs, Utada was surrounded by seven to eight bodyguards who held paper umbrellas to protect her from paparazzi.

The couple’s guests were also prohibited from taking photos.

Utada, 31, is considered one of Japan’s most successful artists and has sold over 50 million albums worldwide.

After releasing five Japanese studio albums, two compilation albums and three English albums, she went on hiatus in 2011.

In 2012, Utada contributed a song titled “Sakura Nagashi” as the ending theme for an Evangelion movie, but her management stressed that it did not represent a return to her musical career.

A year later, she hosted a monthly radio program titled “Kuma Power Hour.” It aired its last episode in March 2014.

Utada’s first husband was film director Kazuaki Kiriya. They tied the knot in 2002 and got divorced four and a half years later.

Mostly it's her mom killing herself and the divorce I think are the sad parts.

She looks so happy !

She was like my biggest obsession in my weaboo phase. I would force my dad to play her tape as he dropped and picked me up from school.

Im so confused as to why she changed both outfits and hairstyles between these photos.
angelofdeath275 18th-Jun-2014 07:37 pm (UTC)
yeah isnt that a lot of needless work?
akaich0u 18th-Jun-2014 09:35 pm (UTC)
Not really. It's quite common with Asian weddings.
asa_chan 18th-Jun-2014 08:11 pm (UTC)
Japanese women often change dresses when they marry, a white wedding gown, elaborate kimono and maybe some sort of reception dress
fauxparadiso 18th-Jun-2014 08:29 pm (UTC)
From what I've seen, a lot of multi-cultural weddings like to reflect traditions from both sides. My Korean friend had the Western style white dress wedding but then she also had the traditional hanbok dress for the reception.

oooh, she married an italian guy!! Well, lots of happiness to them :)
