Gackt & Matsuda Seiko Talk on Pop Jam
The host, the KinKi Kids guy, introduces the girl (no idea who she is) and Gackt.
KK: (to girl) I understand that you've had some things that have been bothering you lately. So you decided to ask Gackt, a man who lives his life GORGEOUSLY (LOL) and with pleasure, for advice. (Girl: Yes!) And so today's topic is...?
Girl: "Oshiete, Gakuto." / "Tell me/teach me, Gackt."
Gackt: I'll try my best.
KK: Ok, let's ask Gackt! So, this is a dog. (picks up the stuffed dog) I understand you bought a dog, right?
Girl: That's right. At the beginning of the year, I bought a puppy. ^^ I named her "Bibi-chan."
Girl: Yes, it's very cute.
Other girl: Why'd you name her Bibi?Girl: When I went to the petstore, there were a lot of dogs, but this one was very lively/vivid. ("bibiddo", hence how she got "bibi.")
KK: Ah, so it was lively, I see.
Girl: Yes, that's right.
KK: I seeee. Speaking of dogs, you have one too, don't you Gackt?
KK: I heard that you named him unusually but...
Gackt: "Bell Constantine Chappy."
KK: Uhh...could you say that again? ^^;
Gackt: "Bell Constantine Chappy."
KK: Why'd you pick such a strange name?
Gackt: Why did I, I wonder? I don't really know. ^^ When I first saw it, I thought: "Ah!! That's Bell Constantine Chappy!"
KK: At the very moment you saw it? *laughing*
Gackt: At that very moment.
KK: Wow, that's so cool. ^^ I guess this happens a lot -- "Ahhhh, Bell-chan, Bell-chan, Bell-chan!" (does that weird thing with the stuffed dog) Does that happen?
Gackt: Well, I have to leave my dog at home all the time.
KK: Oh, really? That must be lonely for him.
Gackt: Uh huh..and so when I go home, I say "Wait. Wait a minute." and it doesn't leap up on me.
KK: Ahh, it must be lonely...
Girl: So, when it starts to move, you say "Wait." and it stops?
Gackt: Well, when it starts to move, I move the dog back, and say "Wait."
KK: So you keep repeating this?
Gackt: Yes. And when it does, I tell it that it's a good dog. ^^ "Wait."
KK: Ahhh, you're strict, Gackt-san!
Other girl: So it can't get close to you at all?
Gackt: Well, when it does, it's always like "haaa..haaaa" (imitates the panting of a dog), and that's not a nice feeling, and also it drools. ^^; So that's why I don't let it run in the house.
KK: That's pretty strict, isn't it...*takes the dog again* "Ahhh, I understand Gackt-san, I understand!" (imitating the dog) That's how Gackt seems to be, right?
KK: (to girl) Your dog can't remember commands yet, can it?
Girl: No, it's always like "haahaahaahaa" (imitating dog)
KK: Moving on....you had a question about handling (a car)?
Girl: Yes...I don't have a car, but I really want one. But I haven't bought one yet.
KK: I heard that you liked cars, Gackt...
Gackt: Yes...my car is my girlfriend, so......*hahaha, then there's screams of rage from the audience. ^^ soooo funny*
KK: Your car is your girlfriend.
Other girl: How is your car your girlfriend?
Gackt: It's selfish, isn't it? (^^;;) It requires my money and all of my concentration and time...
KK: I seeeee.
Gackt: Right? ^^
KK: Just like a girl...
Girl: So when you uhh, drive your "girlfriend"...uhhhh...*laughs*
Gackt: Well, I like to relax when driving. So I use my legs to drive.
KK: Isn't that dangerous??
Gackt: My right leg is for the brakes and gas. My left leg does the steering.
KK: Your left leg does the steering?? *demonstrates* I don't think I'd like to try that any time soon...it seems dangerous. ^^; (to girl) So how was Gackt's advice?
Girl: Uhh..it seems a little hard to follow. ^^
KK: I see, I see. (to audience) This was "Oshiete Gackt."
Other Girl: Thank you, Gackt. *gackt leaves*
