So who is Gackt you may say? The first thing you need to know is that he is a Japanese Singer/ Song writer/ Actor. He is much much more than that though and I think it is my job to educate you with the bare necessities about his ultimate hotness, GACKT.
Who is this guy that have invaded my very system that everything just becomes all sweet sugary goodness with just the mention of his name?
When did THIS all start anyway???
Well, you see, I wasn’t really an in-born Japanese lover. I actually hated them when i was in high school since i couldn’t figure out what is so “GREAT” or “CUTE” about their make-up and clothes. ( I was exposed to Visual Kei first. )
All my first impressions about the Japanese rock/pop culture changed when my bestfriend, Rem, lent me her cds ( containing interviews and PVs of various Japanese bands and artists ) strictly told me to “try” listening to the music so that i will be able to eventually appreciate them.
Ok, so i shrugged and told myself that: “Well, why not give it a try…”
The first Japanese bands that I discovered ( and came to love in the end ) after watching my bestfriends’ cds are:
L’Arc~en~Ciel –> Which I will ALWAYS love.
X-Japan –> Love them. The hairstyle, the band members….just perfect.
Dir~en~Grey –> They seem too “morbid” and “sick” for me , so i never really got into them. I love their hairstyle and get-up though. ^_^v
and of course, the guy who captured me in a mere heartbeat, Camui Gackt.
After seeing these, my life has NEVER BEEN THE SAME AGAIN.
I’ll try to make this ABOUT GACKT very detailed as possible, so please do excuse me if there are a lot of facts and pictures here. lol. ^_^
So first things first: The Biography
Name: Camui M.S. Gackt
This wonderful creature’s real name is not really known although he tells people that his name is Camui M.S. Gackt. According to some researchers, his real name might really be Satoru Okabe. Neat, eh? Sato-kun! hehe
Since the Japanese often use the last name to refer to someone, “Camui” is Gackt’s surname while “Gackt” is his first name. Calling him either way is fine. Given that the Japanese has their own accent when pronouncing names, they pronounce his name as “Gackuto”.
I don’t know what M.S. stands for since Gackt himself doesn’t want to say what they mean. But being the Gackt fangirl that I am, i think it means “Mr. Sexiness”. LOL
–> Let’s get this straight: Gackt is a MAN. Yes he could be pretty
ALWAYS sometimes, but deep inside that beautiful face is a GUY. Fine , we could go on an endless debate about Gackt’s sexual orientation but bottomline is: HE IS BIOLOGICALLY MALE.
Just to leave you bewildered, let me quote Gackt himself:
“Its not that I like men sexually, just that I can admit when they are beautiful. But sexually I need a woman.”
There you go. hihi
Birthday: July 4, 1540 / 1973
–> Now, this is where it all gets nasty. He claims that his birth date is July 4, 1540!!! So that freaking means that he is about 467 years old! And no, i didn’t make this up just to make him look cool or whatever! He really said this in various interviews and shows.
Well, he is one bloody sexy guy who already lived for four centuries then! Hahaha
But according to some
crazed-fangirls/fanboys researchers, he was born in 1973 or something close to that.
Age: 467 years old / 34 years old
–> So basically, he has two ages that we could choose to believe in. Because I’m being realistic here, i think he really is within the 30-40 years old range. No human could actually live for four centuries and still remain as hot as he is. Unless he is some vampire born to be loved by his DEARS ( collective name for his FANS like me!! ) and live forever and ever! LOL
Birthplace: Okinawa, Japan
Hometown: Kyoto, Japan ( But currently lives in Tokyo, Japan )
Family Members: Father: Trumpeter , Mother: Hairdresser , Older Sister and a Younger brother
–> It would have been a blast if there were pictures of Gackt’s family lying around the net, but sadly there are NONE. I would definitely like to see Gackt’s parents and siblings!! Especially his siblings!! Just imagine, a GIRL version of Gackt and a YOUNGER version of him! Weeeee~ That’s just sweet. If i could dig up juicy pictures of Gackt’s family, i’ll definitely post them here. LOL
Here is a picture to suffice for the loss of Gackt’s family’s picture though. This is Gackt when he was still a sniveling little boy. Haha. I love him still though, he looks overly cute here!
Height: 180 cm or 5feet and 11 inches ( 6 feet probably )
Weight: 60 Kilograms or 130 pounds
–> Sexy, ain’t he? LOL. And its all muscles! If you don’t want to believe me,scroll up again and look at that BODY. Not enough? Now see THIS.
Yeah, i can see no fats, right there. He is very very lean and he works very hard just to keep his body the way it is.
Eye Color: Like a normal Asian, he has brown eyes. But if you are a Gackt fangirl/fanboy like me, you may know by now that he has quite a collection of different colored contact lenses. ^_^v
Shoe size: 8
Ring size: 10-14
Chest: 98 cm or 38.58 inches
Waist:68 cm or 26.77 inches ( Now , THAT is just HOT. lol )

Dislikes: Cockroaches,Sweets,Rice and electric lights
–> Yep, here is an Asian who DOESN’T EAT RICE. That’s why his body is so lean! His WHOLE HOUSE is only lighted by candles because he hates bright lights. Wee~
Favorite Perfume: Chanel Platinum Egoiste
–> When we had our stop-over in the Narita, Japan airport ( But still, its JAPAN! ) i bought an original CHANEL PLATINUM EGOISTE! Yep, this is my only signature perfume and i don’t even use it. Well, way back in high school i’d spray this on myself and imagine that Gackt is just nearby. lol. Yeah, It smells good, i swear!
Favorite food: Kimchi, Spaghetti, Egg Salad, Tea ( if this counts as food. haha )
Favorite color: Black and White
Favorite Manga: Banana Fish and Gundam
–> Banana Fish is a shounen-ai kind of manga, by the way. LOL
–> It was said that he was such a big fan of “Kidô senshi Gandamu” ( original version of Mobile Suit Gundam ) and followed the series like a little fanboy. This didn’t go to waste since the Gundam creator and director, Yoshiyuki Tomino noticed this and invited Gackt to be the one who will provide the themesong for ‘Kidô senshi Z Gundam – A New Translation’ (‘Mobile Suit Gundam Z – A New Translation’) film trilogy. Gackt was aghast and was reported to be very happy that he was the chosen for this. The song he did for this anime is Metamorphoze.

–> That’s just wicked! Really a very talented individual. I can’t even play a single instrument and HE could play…*counts*…almost ELEVEN instruments!!!?? And on top of that , he could REALLY SING!! With that , i don’t mean a very mediocre talent in singing, but a kick-ass DEEP FALSETTO VOICE. O.O I am just mesmerized…oh my…
I bow down to Gackt. ^_^v Such a talented hot guy. <3
