* HandicappedBadass: She's completely deaf in one ear. She was warned not to continue singing and touring. ''She's now been touring for 15 years straight;'' I think she's got the badass part down.

* HandicappedBadass: She's completely deaf in one ear.her left ear, has tinnitus in her right, and as of 2017 is starting to go completely deaf. This hasn't stopped her from becoming the top-selling soloist of all time in Japan. She was warned not to continue singing and touring. ''She's now been touring for 15 years straight;'' I think she's got the badass part down.straight.''



* LaughingMad: Played with. In her cute, upbeat, party-anthem track "Party Queen"--which upon further analysis (and thanks to Hamasaki confirming it herself), is actually a deconstruction of the party girl image and emphasizes the loneliness and sadness inherent to being a 'Party Queen'. At the end of the song, even after the music stops playing, laughter can be heard that a few fans have claimed sounds oddly deranged--which really drives the whole point of the song home.

* UnpleasableFanbase: Everything she does is scrutinized and criticized heavily, mostly by her online fanbase. This isn't entirely unsurprising; she was heralded as one of Japan's absolute icons for an era, and while she's still active in the music scene, fans who were around for that era can't help but compare everything she does now to then. Nothing will satisfy them unless it has "2001" slapped on it somewhere.

* CashCowFranchise: Many would argue that this is what Hamasaki's 15 year-long career has become. It's rather difficult to argue it too, seeing as this is the music industry we're talking about.



* HitlessHitAlbum: The five singles from ''A Song for XX'' were average/mediocre sellers... and then the album itself sold almost 1.5 million.

--> Meeting you was fate\\
Because you're always\\
The one who teaches me what it means to be me\\
Who gives meaning to my existence
