Japan Music

Atsuko Maeda, formerly from Japanese girl group AKB48, recently met up with country/pop singer, Taylor Swift in Japan. The event took place on November 26 at Tokyo FM where Atsuko has a radio program called, Heart Songs of Atsuko Maeda. Taylor was in Japan during that time to promote her latest album, Red.

Maeda had this to say, “I love Tay the most in the world, I’m really glad that I have come to meet you. When I’m sad, I always listen to her songs and it gives me encouragement to always do my best”.

Maeda has always professed her admiration for Swift on air for quite a few years including at the launch of the Heart Songs program in 2010.

Maeda added, “Her music is so moving and she’s really cool and cute and pretty and just like a princess!!”

Atsuko left the powerhouse girl group of AKB48 back in August.
