Grammy nominated and platinum record selling rock band Weezer, famous for hits such as “Beverly Hills” and “My Name Is Jonas,” has released the Japanese version of their new album “The Red Album” today.
As a special surprise for the Japanese listeners, Weezer did a cover of one of BoA’s Japanese ballads entitled “Meri Kuri” as a bonus track. Lead singer Rivers Comuo of Weezer commented that he was “instantly taken” by the song, as well as the youthful Japanese girl that originally chirped it.*
“I really dig subsurvient Asian girls, so covering a love song by a cute one is kind of like virtual jerking off,” the often misunderstood songwriter said in a recent interview. “I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that. And if anyone in my band thought there was anything weird about it, they would tell me. And then I would kick them out of the band.” *
*Many of Cuomo’s quotes in this story have been altered or fictionalized. Why would we do such a thing? Because we find his awkward Asian fetish to be super-duper freaky. Read the actual AllKPop.com post here.
Thank you, you-know-who!
