Kyary Pamyu Pamyu

A three-word preview for Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's Nanda Collection World Tour 2014: CANDY CRUSH SAGA. The Japanese pop star's sickeningly sweet blend of kawaii ("cute" in Japanese) and offbeat goth won the obsessive hearts of her equally quirky fans when she debuted in 2011. Imitation art poppers Lady Gaga and Katy Perry probably wish they had music impresario Yasutaka Nakata on their team. Kyary Pamyu Pamyu's Nakata-penned singles, like "Candy Candy" and "PonPonPon" off 2012's Pamyu Pamyu Revolution, are exquisite, grotesque, and addictive explorations of infantilized innocence. Reviews of earlier stops on her tour allude to teddy bears, bunnies, and Muppet-like creatures making prominent appearances. It's hope that Halloween without sexy outfits could still be an affair of strange theater — or that Miley minus twerking could still be entertaining.
