I wanted to get this out before I forgot about it (again), so do forgive its somewhat random nature, but check it! Billie Idle make an appearance on The NIGHT, which isn’t new for them, but this is probably the first time that I’ve seen (this much) video from it:
Collaborations are one of the things that make idols fun — whether it’s your favorites mixing it up with other idols or taking the stage with a band, you know that you’re getting something both familiar and unique at the same time.
I’ve taken to sticking graduation announcements into the Weekender, the exception being cases where either I personally really like somebody, the group is fairly prominent, I am being paid etc. In this case, this is a very sad announcement!
In short: Coming up on March 20 will be a final one-man live for one of the PiGU old guard; it isn’t the end of PiGU, fortunately, but it’s still a farewell for a girl who stuck with her group through thick and thin. Continue reading →
