HK: It [MTV Japan Awards] is very exciting because it's the first time. I think MTV’s really big in Japan. MTV’s big all over the World but I think especially in Japan. I’ve never been in Japan so I love coming over here.
CBL: You said that MTV's very big in Japan, but you've never been in Japan before, you said.
HK: But I know it's very big over here.
CBL: How would you learn about this?
HK: Because I think that the Japanese people are really into fashion and they're really into music, and that it's known in the World that they're very fashionable.
CBL: So, do you think that fashion is an important component of MTV?
HK: I think so too. Yes, because the artists, the performers, they show the public, y'know, different hairstyles and they show them different clothes and I think that influences the designers too and that’s what we wear outside.
CBL: There are a lot of fashionable people here tonight and you're very fashionable as well, but you're not a musician. Do you feel a little bit out of place?
HK: No, not really because what I do is entertaining too. I've done movies and sitcoms so I feel that it all goes together a little bit.
CBL: It's all showbiz?
HK: Yeh, and Akebono [sumo wrestler] is not a musician. Y'know, I think that is what's very exciting...
CBL: It's Konishki [another sumo wrestler]
CBL: Tonight, it's Konishki, I think.
HK: No, I was with Akebono.
CBL: OK, thank you very much.
