Former Morning Musume member Maki Goto revealed details about her weight on her blog. She hadbeen absent from entertainment related activities for over 2.5 years as of the first writing of this post which was back in July 2014 and she is now back.
Of all the former Morning Musume members that I have written about, Maki Goto is not one of them. On a July 2nd blog entry, Goto wrote that she weighs 43 kilograms or 94.6 pounds. Goto also said that it would be best if she could keep it at this range. Choreographer Mayumi Natsu had very nice things to say about Goto, saying that her abilities are #1 among Morning Musume and AKB48 members. Goto was very joyful upon hearing these words and she described herself as a fortunate person. She values every piece of her happiness.
As of the beginning of this year, Morning Musume now goes by the name of Morning Musume 18. The name change was made by the group’s producer TSUNKU. Note: as of November 2014, the group has a new leader. That leader is Mizuki Fukumura of Tokyo.
Maki Goto was part of Morning Musume’s 3rd generation and she is the only member of that generation.
Preceding Goto was the 2nd generation of members which included the lovely Kei Yasuda. And even before this generation was the first generation which includes Yuko Nakazawa who began her career with the group in 1997. Maki Goto is not the only former Morning Musume member to announce a return to the entertainment industry. Former member Ai Kago returned to the entertainment industry after forming a three member unit called Girls Beat!! And Asuka Fukuda also made her return after a long absence as well. Fukuda is now a member of the group called Peace$tone, a group that she formed back in 2011. Following Goto’s tenure with Morning Musume came the fourth generation of members which included the mentioned Ai Kago, Nozomi Tsuji, and Rika Ishikawa.
