Um, so like, I feel like  now is a very friendly person, she’s more open, she’s willing to like and talk and have conversations. But at the time, when we were underneath Nanae [Takahashi], it was more rigid. You know, there weren’t jokes, unless she was making the jokes, or unless, like, the top three were making jokes and stuff.

Because it’s such a hard business.
