Only in Japan:

Grandpa idol group from Kochi Prefecture rising in popularity

Five member grandpa group Jii POP have been rising to popularity in Japan.

The group's average age is 67 with the eldest member being 80 and the youngest being 58. The remaining three members are in their 60s. Through their activities, the group aims to publicize their hometown of Kochi Prefecture which has the second biggest aging population in Japan while showing that aging can be a cool thing. Their debut song, "Kourei Banzai!" (Hooray, Old Age!) has done just that.

With lyrics such as "Kochi-ken, this is how it is. One out of three people are over 65. But lively, lively. Everyday is lively." And, "Even if I stay up late, I still wake up at 5:30"

In an interview with Asahi Shimbun, one of the members stated, "We didn't know it would become this big." Besides their musical activities, the members are active in fishing and managing the local fishery cooperative association.

Exile's ATSUSHI announces plans to study overseas until 2018
EXILE's vocalist ATSUSHI announced on 31 August that he will be heading to the US for studies and be based there until 2018.

In his statement, ATSUSHI said that as EXILE headed into its 15th anniversary, he was wondering what he could do in order to evolve into a better artiste so he had been thinking about this for the past few years and discussed his plan with the staff, HIRO and his fellow EXILE members. In view of the fact that EXILE's music is primarily based on R & B from the US, he hopes to study English and music in order to make his music more acceptable to the Japanese market and work with excellent musicians from around the world during his stay there. He also stressed that his stay overseas will be for a limited time only so he promised that he will return as an improved EXILE performer. ATSUSHI called for the support and understanding of his selfish decision and asked for the time off until 2018 so that he can pursue his dream. However, it was not mentioned when exactly he would move overseas.
