Kumi Koda talks love on last date of mini-tour

TOKYO —

Pop star Kumi Koda took to the stage in Yoyogi this week for the last of a series of appearances in major Japanese cities to promote her latest album “Dejavu.” Surviving a tumble, the singer went on to belt out “Pop Diva” and a handful of her other hits for the appreciative 4,000-strong crowd.

The live gig coincided with her parents’ wedding anniversary and, unable to contain her emotion, Koda told the crowd, “There’s somebody special in my life. He’s fun and someone I can respect. I am, as always, hoping he could be the one.”

Koda will embark on a 42-date live tour in 30 venues across Japan from March 25. It will be her first full nationwide tour in four years.

    Kumi is dating B. Howard. That's the whole point of their duet on the album and their PV... C'mon. And he's cute and rich like her. So happy for them!

    Kumi used to be rich, but she blew it all on sunless tanner and press-on nails. It's quite sad ;)
