Ohno’s Pot and Threesomes?

Filed under: Arashi, Johnny's Entertainment, Opinion

When my roommate said to me that Ohno Satoshi of Arashi had a marijuana and threesome rumor, I laughed, because come on, that just sounds unbelievably ridiculous.

And it still sounds unbelievably ridiculous. From what I can gather from the little bits of information over at the Arashi community at Vox, there’s information of Ohno having participated in a threesome and that he was caught at a club smoking pot – which is bad, not only because Ohno is in a drama and the group that will be promoting the Olympics on NTV, but because pot is really, really illegal in Japan, and so the police will be investigating into this.

I think gossip mags in Japan are a load of shit. A lot of the time the stuff they report stuff that’s not true, and the photos they post half the time are pretty dumb too (A posed in a picture with B – they must be having a dirty sex relationship, oh nooo.) But that’s not to say the gossip mags don’t get it right sometimes either – with disastrous results. Just from grainy photos, lot of H!P girls have been ousted for smoking or having boyfriends, a lot of Johnny’s have gotten kicked out (nameless juniors, Uchi and Kusano from NEWS).

Johnny’s has a lot of girlfriend scandals – none of which I care much about. Yamapi dating Abiru Yuu? Why not? Koki’s a gangsta who bangs porn stars – sure. Takaki Yuya took purikura with Kato Rubi from 9nine – oohh nooo. Years back, Aiba Masaki’s ex leaked photos of the two of them – I actually thought those were pretty cute photos. SMAP’s Nakai is dating Koda Kumi – yeah, okay, not like either of them are getting younger.

But rumors of real illegal activity is serious business. I believe there was a Johnny’s Juniors drinking scandal a long time back – who knows now, because those juniors disappeared from the company. Uchi Hiroki got caught drunk and got suspended; Kusano Hironori got caught drinking something out of a can and got suspended. Akasaka Akira of old school Johnny’s Hikaru Genji got caught with some meth – and, well, this wasn’t a gossip mag thing, but he got caught by the police, and immediately fired even though he was a long-time Johnny’s.

Now, I don’t think these photos say anything about pot – they don’t even say that Ohno banged those two ladies, because I don’t know about everyone else, but I imagine threesomes to be without clothing. And honestly, I doubt the pot rumor will amount to anything – even if Ohno does smoke the chronic, I’m sure he’d have had time to get rid of his stash by now and purged his system. Heck, even if Ohno farms marijuana in his apartment I’m sure the jimusho would find some way to cover it up.

Now, I’m not saying that smoking marijuana or marijuana growing is a-okay just because it’s a Johnny doing it – but before I see accusations, I’d like to see even a little proof. They don’t even have photos of Ohno with any smoke anywhere. Are they judging his “drug use” from the words of one woman? His weight? (He’s busy, and he’s always been skinny.) His expression? (Watch any Arashi show – he is always spaced out.) His actions? (That a almost-30 man is touching some scantily dressed women?) Now that Ohno is getting some attention of his own, it’s time for him to get picked on – and I suppose that just some girlfriend or sex rumors isn’t enough to sell the magazines anymore, so there’s drug rumors now?

Who are these people at the magazine posting these trashy stories, and who are those grody bitches who sell the photos and stories to the magazines? Get a life.

Edit July 29;

According to Fybabe’s Boys blog that has kindly translated numerous articles, Ohno has admitted to having a threesome but denied the marijuana rumor. Activities for Ohno and Arashi will be going on as usual.

And – this is the best part – here is where JE demonstrates its yakuza qualities. They immediately went to calm and quiet the media, and supposedly cut deals with the publishing company Kodansha that includes the gossip magazine and several other high power publications, including their very profitable yearly calendar deal with Johnny’s. All this, and blend in rumors of this happening because a person in charge of publications died recently, allegations of photoshop, and the fact that this whole thing is blown up pretty crazy makes the whole thing pretty funny to me.

If JE is really blacklisting Kodansha… I bet the higher-ups are furious with the gossip magazine because, hello, really really popular and profitable business deal shattered. They don’t do all the JE calendars, but it’s already a multi-billion yen industry. Just selling calendars to fangirls. Kodansha is a big company, but this has to be at least somewhat painful for them.

I’m glad Johnny’s seems to be completely backing Ohno. Yay for Arashi.🙂 I hope the scandal effectively ends here and the whole thing blows over soon.

Edit July 30; Support Ohno?

Totally agree with you!!!

The entire idea of Ohno on pot cracks me the hell up, because how would you even know? The most obvious symptoms are slow, spacey behavior and THE MUNCHIES. And considering that Ohno fits that description pretty much all the time, he’s gotta be stoned all the time too. It just doesn’t make any sense at all.

What we really should be worried about is if Jun and Nino are going to be hiding some bodies very shortly.😄

@Honooko: I can see the headlines now: “Matsumoto and Ninomiya seen hanging around near mountains; THEY MUST HAVE KILLED SOMEONE.” Just ridiculous.

@VeroRiida: Those pictures don’t portray a good image but nowhere near the scandalous level that the mag is trying to pass off – a 28 year old star should be able to grab some ass.😛

Love the comments on the rumors. Especially Koki banging porn stars. It’s like “Oh, I see it every day, no big deal.” LOL. Hilarious post!

(PS: If Ohno smoked pot, it would explain a lot of those crazy things he does and the gayness and the spacey-outness)

Comment by Raid

@Raid: Koki, pornstars – they go hand in hand.😛

Comment by oroitsme

^ indeed they do. xD

Comment by Raid

The media is just some money making business that cant wait to get their hands on some juicy gossip and cut a quick deal. I mean, if Ohno is a real GUY, which guy would refuse girls? I mean.. unless he’s GAY. but come on, marijuana is out of the question. I think his career would in his opinion be somthing more important than smoking marijuana. PLUS, if he really was smoking marijuana, why choose a period when he was his new drama + Arashi Album oncoming (or out already) why would he risk his career, his Arashi buddies career? The media is seriously such irritating people that aim to sell more papers and print more and more ridiculous stuff so as to ensure they earn more money and get a raise. So, I trust Ohno and KAMBATEII

Comment by kk

Actually Ohno did admit to the threesome but he didn’t admit to Marijuana , not that it matters his personal affairs is HIS PERSONAL AFFAIRS . And the owner of Johnny Entertainments didn’t even care . lol The media is a funny thing .

Comment by Rhm

eh..being a new fan of arashi, this is completely mind-blowing to me. it’s somehow crushed the image of ohno that i had in my head..

Comment by sarah

You actually make it appear so easy with your presentation however I in finding
this topic to be actually something that I believe
I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very
extensive for me. I’m having a look forward for your next post, I’ll try to
get the dangle of it!
