Misconceptions about Visual Kei

Hello guys im here today. After being part of the visual kei scene for a few years now I’ve come across many misconceptions and stereotypes that ultimately aren’t true. In this following blog I will be covering the most common ones. 

1:Visual Kei singers are gay 

Obviously you know how this one started. A pretty man in a dress can’t be straight….. 😒

Wrong!  

Obviously there are going to be gay visual kei Singers because  that’s natural. However just because a man tries to look pretty,doesn’t mean that he’s gay.  After all you shouldn’t just assume things like that. 

2: visual kei is dark

This one isn’t so wrong because bands like jilluka and dir en grey are very dark. Both the lyrics and videos are go tos if you love Gothic elements.  However with bands like Alice nine and Lm.C you get much lighter happier lyrics and video.

Lm. C’s punky heart is definitely a cheerful happy song . I’ll link the video to that in the bottom ⬇

3: visual kei can only be rock music

This one is totally wrong.  There are many vkei bands singers and songs that aren’t just rock. They have many pop music elements and techno

Visual kei artists like Kaya and gackt sing a wife variety of styles. Pop techno darkwave trance jazz and rock. 

Kayas songs hydrangea and taboo are perfect examples that I will link ⬇

4:All visual kei songs sound the same

This I’d probably the one I hate the most. None visual kei fans say that all visual kei sings sound the same and that artists rip each other off .

Obviously there are going to be similarities. This one girl pointed out to me that in The Gazette’s the invisible wall lead dinner ruki is wearing red leather gloves, and in Disreign’s within the void Yohio is wearing red leather gloves .

I hate that right when people listen to a new visual kei sing they feel the need to compare it to other songs and other band. They don’t take the time to appreciate the effort. It’s maddening. Please guys don’t be the person that does this. 

5:Visual kei singers suck at singing English

This one is more if a joke but still one that people believe.  First you have to understand that some Japanese people pronounce English words with Japanese accents, so that makes it a little hard to understand.  However there are plenty sing where the English is perfectly understood. 

Well guy I hope you enjoyed reading these strange misconceptions. I how you kerned something as well. 

Don’t assume. 

Don’t compare. 

Stay Kei 

Gabby 💜

Femme Fatale-Freya

I LOVE this song and am so excited to finally be writing this review

 

Omg i love this song . Im not exaggerating ive listened to this song at least 50 times within the last month.I dont know why even while i knew Femme Fatale was a visual kei band , I didnt believe that  Kaya ( the lead singer) was a man . I mean he hits notes most girls struggle with easily and he is extremely gorgeous. Like if i were a straight guy I might  fall in love with him .

I pretty much know all of Femme fatale’s songs this happens to be my favorite. Freya is  dark , alluring, and I feel like a Femme Fatale when i listen to this song.

I was extremely bummed when i found out they disbanded a few months ago. Now Femme Fatale shall live on in memory .

I love this video because its ust so Gothic (my favorite thing) ,and yet the melody is so alluring and light and airy the way the notes flow with the music.

I love the lyrics to this song  my favorite part being “Mou nanimo kowakunai wa” Meaning :  im not afriad of anything

Lastly i a obsessed with Kaya’s dress in this video like OMG i want to get married in this dress is so puffy and pretty and goddamn Kaya is beautiful in it !!!!

Ps: Isnt that gif just amazing kaya looks so great ❤ flawless ❤  *such high quality cant look away*
