I found the April 10 review of Utada Hikaru’s new album, “This Is The One,” to be a bit insulting to Utada’s character. The reviewer said she was “whoring” herself “both musically and lyrically.” Utada has stated before, however, that her English lyrics are more cheeky. She writes her own lyrics, so she just wants to have a bit of fun with this album, no?
