BABYBEARD'S KOTOMI And SUZU Talk of the Characters They Truly Are, Music, and Being So Kawaii-Metal!

Female's KOTOMI and SUZU had met for the first time at the audition for the newest act within Japan's music scene BABYBEARD. Fronted by vocalist/crossdresser/pro-wrestler Ladybeard! These two girls being quite excited during their auditions, winning in the long run, had come together with Ladybeard forming BABYBEARD, going on to soon release all new music! The duo talks all about the new music coming up, as well as some insight about who they are and what sort of things make them the true KAWAII-METAL stylists that they are!

1. So how did KOTOMI and SUZU meet one another then the two come to meet Ladybeard?

The girls met each other for the first time in the first team meeting after the audition.

K: When I met SUZU I was so nervous that I talked to her in a super formal manner. Now we are best friends so it’s not the case anymore!😊  

When I met Ladybeard at the audition I was so excited that I could see the person I had seen many times on TV, but also I was so nervous because of the audition.

S: When we met each other, I was so excited by the fact that now we’ll work together as a team despite the fact that everyone has a totally different background. When I met Bea-chan(Ladybeard), I was impressed the amount of energy he had and instantly I became a huge fan of him!

2. What about KOTOMI and SUZU how did they come into the music scene and become pop idols, were you individual artists or formed together as a duo?

K: I was a huge fan of idols originally, but as I saw them performing, I have come to think that I want to perform onstage and make someone happy. I was in another idol group before BABYBEARD, but it unfortunately came to an end.

S: I like idols, but I was interested in acting and I was in another management agency to study acting skills. Then I found out about the audition and I thought I could give it a try, and now I’m here!


 3. How will KOTOMI and SUZU bring originality to this group that is Babybeard?

 K: Well, Ladybeard said I’m good at dancing, so I think I’m in charge of dance performance! I’ll practice a lot!

 S: My role is to be free! I like seeing people delighted by my comments!

 4. What makes Babybeard different to all the other pop metal groups in existence out there?

  K: We have the strongest and cutest Bea-chan!!

 S: I think our structure is unique. Goddes Bea-chan and us babies will bring you the one and only KAWAII-METAL style!

 5. SUZU and KOTOMI both have a description for their "character" so is it a personality trait you portray on stage when in BabyBeard, how are you different when not in this character mode?

K: I have no difference in character between onstage and offstage. I tend to be strangely excited all the time actually. 😊

S: I don’t have on-off character persona. My family always say to me I’m surprisingly in my own way. If there was one difference, I would be really quiet when I’m sleepy. I’m so quiet like a different person.

6. You both share various hobbies, likes and dislikes, if you had to switch for the day, who would last the longest in each other's shoes?

K: I think SUZU will lose…I’m fairy patient so I think I can stand longer than her.

S: It would be fun if I could be KOTOMI! I think we can enjoy each other’s persona because we’re very different. But I think I would be the one who gives up first.

7. Let's talk about the attire, did you decide upon the colors and overall design of what you would look like for this project as a whole or share ideas between the trio of you?

K: I chose blue because I like it. The costume was made by a wonderful designer, and it’s very cute! I like it a lot!

S: Personally my favorite color is purple, but I thought green would work with other member’s color. The costume was designed after a cupcake, and I think it’s very adorable. I like it!

8. Can you briefly discuss some of the songs that have been written and recorded for BabyBeard, what can be expected upon listening to the music?

K: Our new song “NIPPON KARA KONNICHIWA” is the song which brings everyone energy from Japan! Especially I like the lyric “I wanna hug you when we meet in person”, because it’s really cute! I want everyone to listen to the song. The other song PIENIZER, is made under the theme of Japanese word “Pien”, which is used when something sad or pity happens. The message is “If you feel sad, tomorrow is another day, so don’t worry!” so it’s a very positive song.  

S: Both songs are catchy and once you hear it you’ll want to hear it again. They are also very feel-good songs with the pop rhythms.

9. What else is in-store from you girls and BabyBeard as a whole for the year 2021 and beyond!

K: We want to bring you a lot of Kawaii and energy through the internet until we can meet in person! Please support us!

S: I want to make as many people happy as possible with our activities! Let’s make a year 2021 smile!
