Idols

I’ll explain the Japanese concept of “idols”. Basically they are models, usually very attractive women, but they do things like sing or appear in movies. The trick is, they aren’t good at anything, they just do stuff because people are told to love them. It’s this fantastic concept that amounts to taking someone and marketing them regardless of any talent. America has plenty of that but it’s generally reviled, in Japan it’s celebrated.
