According to NME, “A member of a top Japanese pop group was not actually a real human being, it has been revealed. Eguchi Aimi was supposed to be the newest member of all-girl group AKB48, but she was actually a composite of six of her bandmates. A video has been released showing how the girls’ features were blended together for the rather convincing publicity stunt.” We’re not quite sure how computer generating a pop star is any different than KE$HA.
Meanwhile, the sixth member of Matchbox 20 is nowhere to be found.
