Small Faces

Right, not so much news as a question. People are making a fuss at me over the fact that Amuro Namie has been named "Kogao Queen" for the second year running. "Kogao" means "small face". I have absolutely no idea how someone can be named a queen of small faces. Why does this position exist? What the hell? That's my question: what the hell?

A lot of Japanese (or perhaps just all Asian people) tend to have bigger heads than westerners. It's considered better looking (and some might argue, closer to the idealised western image) to have a small face. True story.

Oh it's all so ridiculous.
