We at Bear World Magazine love a bit of body positivity! We recently came across a remake/parody of the music video for Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande’s hit song “Rain On Me” from Lady Gaga’s newest album Chromatica. The video features Japanese comedian, fashion icon and plus-size beauty, Naomi Watanabe, serving us all the sickening dance moves, and we could not be more pleased! Big girls can move, too. Werk, Naomi!
The video also features fellow plus-size comedian and dancer Yuriyan Retriever, who is most known as a dancer from Season 14 of America’s Got talent, as Ariana Grande.
For years, Naomi Watanabe has been one of Japan’s most notable fashion icons, but after her recent guest appearance in a special season of Netflix’s Queer Eye set in Japan, and in the border-crossing commercials for SK-II’s Pitera face serum, she become more popular overseas. Recently, she scored the role of Kate Spade’s first ever Japanese brand ambassador.
Her fans began campaigning for more of Naomi, and in March of this year she launced her own YouTube channel, NAOMI CLUB, where she’s done numerous livestreams of her eating, singing, putting on makeup and chatting with her celebrity friends. While it may seem silly and lame to watch someone eat on livestream, nothing is EVER boring with Naomi Watanabe!
