So, you were surfing the web. Clicking any random link that came up.
But then you saw this: Cool Like Plastic. "What a stupid name."
you thought to yourself, and, with nothing else to do, you click on it.
Then you show up here. But what IS here? And what the hell is a Gackt?
Well, my dear friend, let me help you. This is Gackt. For Dummies.
Not implying you're a dummy or anything.
First of all, "Gackt" is a name. Gackt is a man. Gackt is a LADIES man.
"Camui Gackt" is a stage name or, well really, the name everyone refers
to him by. The name given to him at birth is unknown, and you'll probably
hear a lot of rumors about it. But you can call him Gackt. Because
Japanese names are written opposite of English names, his last name is
Camui and his first name is Gackt. Gackt is said exactly how it's spelled
- Gackt. Because of how Japanese is structured, anyone with an accent
will pronouce it as "Gakuto" instead. Either way is fine.
To continue, Gackt says that he was born July 4th, 1540, which would
make him 466 years old. He looks mighty fine for his age, doesn't he?
Like his birth name, his birth date is also unknown. "Well, sheesh!" you
yell. "Can't you tell me ANY hard fact?" Well, fine, no need to get cranky.
Gackt was born in Okinawa, Japan, with a mixed ethnic background, but
the large majority being Japanese. He speaks Japanese, English, French,
Mandarin, and probably a lot of other languages. His blood type is A, and
his hobbies are dating (he's such a player), martial arts (Gackt works
extremely hard to keep his body as lean and strong as possible), and
billards. He's a little under 6 feet tall, ~very~ lean, and has the bad habit
of smoking. He prefers night to day, hates sweets, and prefers candle light
over electric. It's said that the only lights on in his home are always
candles. "How romantic!" you exclaim. Well, yes, unless you're trying to
read or to just find your way around the house without bumping into
anything. I'm sure the people who visit have their way around memorized.
Gackt's personality, at least in the public eye, is always a funny sight to
see. Although he tries not to smile or laugh too much, Gackt is always
saying the funniest things, sometimes without even the intention to do so.
He's a perfectionist, and if he sees you doing something better then him,
you better bet he'll get better then you in a short time. However, he's
always willing to try anything once, even when it makes him look like a
complete fool. Although Gackt is very talented and very popular, he never
seems to take himself too seriously. (We haven't caught him exclaiming
"Ore sama no bigi ni yoi na~" yet.) The most common way people who
stalk follow Gackt online is 'a dork'. Ah. To know Gackt is to love him.
Now, you're probably sitting there going "OK, now, what does this
individual do?". I will tell you. Gackt is what is known as a JRock Singer.
"JRock?" you say. "What's that?" JRock is a special term used for a
Japanese Rock Singer. Although Gackt's music spans a variety of styles,
I will call him a JRock singer because I can. You may also see him described
as a JPop (Japanese Pop) singer. That's OK too. He is a solo artist along
with his bandmates, of whom are referred to as 'GacktJOB'. GacktJOB is
cool, but since this is a Gackt fansite, we'll just stick with the guy I know
at least something about
"Sing?" you say. "Doesn't he do anything else?" Well, of course he does.
Gackt writes and composes his music, as well as plays such instruments as the piano, guitar, drums, trombone, trumpet, bass, and tuba, although he really only plays piano and guitar on stage. "Wow!" I'm sure you're thinking. "That's a lot!" Well, Gackt is a talented individual. He sings in Japanese, with an occasional English lyric. He also has sung two songs in English and one in Mandarin during his solo career.
But Gackt is not just a singer! "He's not?!" you gasp. No, Gackt is also an
actor. "Man, singers-turned-actors normally suck!" you exclaim. Well, I can't say you're wrong, but in Gackt's case, his acting has gotten better. Gackt most recently starred in the movie "Moon Child", and was quite good for the character he portrayed. Moon Child is available overseas if you would like to check it out. Gackt also appears in a lot of commercials and music shows, and even has a video game character modeled after him! In other words: Gackt is nearly everywhere!
Well, now you have a better understanding of who Gackt is. So now,
you can roam around this Gackt Fansite and enjoy yourself even better.
Maybe. Depends on your mood, I suppose.
