My name is kawaiineyo, not really but that’s the web name I go by. I’m more often than not called Neyo for short. I’m twenty years old and surprisingly enough I am an African-American female who happens to enjoy Asian music immensely. I actually listen to it more than I listen to American Music. I have a lot of favorite artists Jpop, Kpop and CPop wise, but if I had to say my favorites they would be:
JPop – Bonnie Pink (Utada Hikaru)
KPop – Lena Park (BoA)
CPop – Faye Wong (Jay Chou)
I also listen to American music of course and my favorites on that side of the world would be:
Female – Whitney Houston (Mariah Carey)
Male – Michael Jackson
My favorite genre of music is:
RnB, but you’ll find that I’ll listen to almost anything for experimental purposes or just to hear something new. Rock is a guilty pleasure of mine and I find that I enjoy Pop and a smidgen of Country and I’m really into Indie Music. The only genre of music that I am wary of really is Techno, but I have been known to dabble in it. I’m not adverse to it, I’d just rather not listen to it on an regular basis.
I started this blog because I wanted to express my opinions on Asian music from a black female’s perpective, since its rare that an African-American is even interested in this sort of music, though its not unheard of. I just thought that my opinion mattered and I wanted to express it, whether people agreed with what I had to say or not. I must say that’s it very tiring and time consuming, but I love it.
I decided upon the name memoriesoflove really because I wanted a name with depth and something that reflected who I was as a person. I think I got it right.
I want to some time in the near future add more entertaining blog entries so that more people will feel inclined to come visit my blog and won’t be bored to death with all the review entries. I want to add in movie, anime and possibly manga reviews too, but I’m still debating on that. The only one that is really likely are the movie reviews, but there’s hope yet for the anime and manga reviews.
I’ll probably add more to this when I think of something…
I hope all that visit enjoy reading me talk about my favorite artists and their music, I think I get a little bit personal with my entries but that’s because its my opinion. I either like it or I don’t, there’s really no inbetween.
