Ladybaby: Ladybeard makes music debut as lead member of pop idol trio

Oh, Ladybeard. Your antics have given us so much joy over the years here at RocketNews24. Who could forget the time you gracefully modelled the boob shirt for our viewing pleasure? And your collaboration with Sailor Suit Old Man was a thing of pure joy.


But we always knew you were destined for even greater things, Ladybeard. And now you’re making your pop debut with your very own idol unit “Ladybaby”!

It appears that Ladybaby will be tasked with promoting costume company Clearstone via special events and YouTube performances. The new idol unit consists of Ladybeard himself, plus “junior” idols Rie Kaneko and Rei Kuromiya. The trio was officially unveiled on March 26 with the following post on Twitter:

Shortly afterwards, a rather bizarre and very energetic video was uploaded on their YouTube channel celebrating the official birth of the group. Check it out!

Here are some behind-the-scenes shots of the making of the video!

Just look at Ladybeard go! He’s got those cutesy idol moves down! Rie-chan and Rei-chan will have their work cut out for them trying not to be constantly upstaged by the bearded wonder. He’s got top idol written all over him!

And now they release their first ever music video and this is just epic!

You can pre-order the first single!

Richard M. aka Ladybeard, is an Australian wrestler and entertainer. Before starting his carreer in Japan he lived in Hongkong and Taiwan, also doing singing and dancing acts, which were very popular.

In 2013 he moved to Japan and after only a year he got very popular through wrestling shows, various singing perfomances and even TV shows.
He calls his music style a mix of kawaii pop and hard core. This makes his personal genre called “kawaii core”. He sings popular pop songs and ballads, starting with a cute voice and original sounds and then, in the middle of the songs, heavy metal elements are added and he sings with his very deep voice.

Karin Maruyama : The Eternal Idol on the Stairway of Dreams

This might be the first time that your hearing the name Karin Maruyama and if that is the case ,then I am about to introduce you to a most special Idol.

Karin Maruyama

Karin was born in 1993 in Fukushima Prefecture and she goes by the nickname Rin-chan and made her debut in 2012.

Rin-chan is someone that I regard as a most special and true Idol ,because in her short career she had to stop her activities and restart her activities many times because Rin-chan has a brain tumor.

She has not let her health stop her as she has held several solo lives and has recorded her own original song CD that was crowd-funded.

The first thing you notice about Rin-chan is that her smile is heart capturing and no matter how difficult the day maybe for her ,she performs with all her best and gives her fans her beautiful voice and smile and the fans give their best back to her to help her gain strength.

Watching Rin-chan perform is like watching something more than just a live ,you’re watching an Idol in the truest definition , a moment in time that you will always remember ,because her charm and smile washes over you and creates a beautiful and lasting memory.


Karin Maruyama is a true Idol in every way and for the members of this web site and her fans ,she will always be an Idol we wish the best for and keep supporting.

On Feb 7th Karin held a live in Tokyo ,it was her first live in 5 months. She was not able to dance as she was weak from her health. Karin had been in the hospital that morning as the cancer had reached her lungs. However Karin gave no thought to not seeing her fans this night ,as she has put it ,she is on the “Stairway to Dream”.
