I have long held onto the fact that there is nothing hotter than androgyny. Shirley Manson rocked it, Madonna embraced it and yesterday on a stage in Tokyo my good friend Akiko showed it grandly dressed as a boy, kissing girls and wowing the crowd with her righteous vocals in the Opera The Mariage of Figaro.

It was also Akiko’s birthday and she wined and dined in glorious style, as she does, over looking the Shibuyan skyline surrounded by her loving friends and fans at Legatos.
Happy Birthday Akiko!

(The birthday girl laughing as her adoring fans sing the Disney classic, Part of Your World, instead of the traditional HB song.)
