“I want to spread the word of kawaii to the rest of the world — I want to see it embraced by everybody,” says Kyary. “And by kawaii, I don’t just mean cute. There’s a difference between lovely, cute and kawaii. Kawaii, to me, is a state of mind.”
“Grotesque is my counterreaction to conventional kawaii,” says Kyary. “My room growing up was pink, but I had shelves of manga that had ugly and creepy themes. Those are my two sides. Thinking about it now, I was always a pretty weird kid, I’ve always been surrounded by grotesque, so it’s a part of my worldview now!”
I felt totally identified with this part, it is just like I've always been.
“For me, ‘traumatic’ is the key word,” she says. “I want to traumatize people out of the way they think. I want to get different reactions. So some people think I’m crazy. But soon they find I’m also addictive. And then they can’t get enough of what I do.”
Kyary is definitely my idol. Love you Kyary!
