Bad publicity was used to endorse someone career.
Just like Madonna or Lady Gaga from America, they used controversy to publish themselves.
Or Edison Chen from Taiwan and even too many artists to mention from Indonesia.
It's just the way the world works.
The more shocking the news, the more people would talk/concern about it, brand awareness increased, popularity rise & shine, more people would want to know, curiosity do sell.
That magazine is a rare item now.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Police Department does not plan to pursue criminal charges against the publishing house Kodansha Ltd. over a controversial photo book on Tomomi Kasai, a member of all-girl idol group AKB48.
According to investigative sources Tuesday and Kodansha, the Tokyo police have been investigating whether one of the photos, a topless picture of Kasai, 21, with a foreign male child covering her breasts with his hands, violates the law against child pornography.
The law says photos intended to stimulate sexual desire such as by showing someone under age 18 touching somebody else’s sex organ constitutes child pornography.
Kodansha has already canceled the release of the photo book, scheduled for Feb. 4, and has collected the Jan. 12 issue of its Shukan Young weekly comic magazine that carried the controversial image and a promotion for the photo book, finding the publication “inappropriate.”
