Who knows who Rola is? She’s this TV star in Japan who’s only like a quarter Japanese or something. She’s famous over there for being cute or just pretty much acting like an idiot in general on television and receiving ludicrous amounts of money for it in the process. She does some modelling on the side too(which I think is supposed to be her main career). Most Japanese people I talk to about her like her but a lot of the Non-Japanese people I talk to about her hate her. I personally want to marry her. So you can imagine my horror when I opened up my computer today and saw news about her gaining some weight.
Okay, no she is not obese. She’s not really even fat per say. She’s just become a lot more meaty than she originally was so I think it all might just be a matter of comparison coupled with the fact that the Japanese image of ‘fat’ is hopelessly distorted. Either way I’ve prepared two photos below so you can be the judge yourself. The first one is pretty much classic Rola and would have been taken around a year or two ago. The second is the offending image I found on a Japanese site this morning which I’m guessing was taken within the last few days. By the way Rola is half Bangladeshi, one quarter Russian and one quarter Japanese incase you were wondering.
She just does not really look like herself in the second image. Apart from having obviously gained some weight she also looks really tired or stressed out or something. I don’t know what the deal is but it’s the total opposite of the image that she sells so it’s probably not good for her career either way. God I hope she’s okay. I couldn’t imagine a Japan without Rola, or one where Rola isn’t Rola anymore.
