Momoka: So I’m going to talk about FNS for a bit… there’s actually a reason why I changed my hair to this colour. People have kept asking me why exactly I dyed my hair blue and I kept on evading the question. But I’ll answer it here. At FNS I… became a popular topic on twitter. People were all ‘woah there’s a pink one!’ ‘who is the pink girl in NMB’. The word pink was thrown about a lot, like pink or NMB pink, or pink hair. And when I saw that I thought ‘I’m not pink though’. Even though I did have pink hair at the time, I was all I’m not pink, that’s not me. So I started getting really annoyed and pissed off because I kept thinking ‘what’s with everyone I’m not pink!’ and then the next day I went off on my own and dyed my hair. And then when I came back to the hotel, a member of upper management rang me and said ‘You. You’re blue now aren’t you’ and I said ‘Yes’. Then he told me to send him a photo, so I sent one, and he got mad because it was quite blue.
Reinyan: That’s not even quite blue, your hair is really blue.
Momoka: And then they got angry and asked me ‘Are you even aware of what you’re doing?’ and I replied ‘I’m sorry I was just angry’. And he said ‘I really can’t cover for you anymore’
Ayabaa: That line you just said really sounded like an impersonation of that manager
Momoka: So he told me he couldn’t cover for me anymore. So I was told to change my hair back.
Reinyan: Back to pink?
Momoka: And then it became a question of should I change it back to pink or to black. But as it turns out I actually can’t dye my hair any other colour now with this blue because my hair is fried. So I just had to keep apologising, I actually got on both knees and did a dogeza* while apologising on the phone.
Ayabaa: Yeah, I saw that.
Reinyan: Even though they couldn’t even see you because you were on the phone!
Momoka: And since I couldn’t change it back he was all ‘What are we going to do with you?’
Ayabaa: Can you stop imitating him!
Momoka: Yeah. I was yelled at a lot for this.
Ayabaa: I’m not surprised
Momoka: Every time I make eye contact with a staff member they just avert their eyes and don’t look at me.
Ayabaa: I don’t blame them though
Reinyan: But you’ve only been yelled at by one staff member?
Momoka: Yeah. every time I do something with my hair I always get requests to call certain staff members
Momoka: So that’s the story
Riichan: That’s pretty amazing though
Reinyan: You have a lot going on
Ayabaa: Momo-chan has a hard life as well, huh. Let’s go back to watching the stage
Momoka: I’m sorry was this story not really needed?
Ayabaa: I’m sure your fans are happy to hear this story
Reinyan: Yes, this is pretty rare. If you’ve been hiding it all this time.
Ayabaa: I’m sure any fan would be concerned if the idol they liked suddenly dyed their hair blue
