Japanese teaser for What is Love and Scandalous by pop singer Maki Goto. The songs was released digitally on July 20, and these could likely be her last new tracks (a compilation album is scheduled for near future though) before her indefinite hiatus.
The 25-year-old former Morning Musume member has plenty of ups and downs in her career, but overall it’s a pretty successful venture.
It’s her personal life that has taken its toll. She lost her father in a mountaineering accident in 1996; her younger brother jailed for robbery in 2007; and her mother died from a fall (no one is sure if it’s accidental or suicidal) in 2010.
Maki announced her hiatus last month, stating that her mother’s death has led to her rethinking about what she wants with her life. She will begin her indefinite break after completing her 2011 schedule. Best wishes to the young lady.
