Metrosexuals = Bishounens (?)

i've been pondering this for days and it's still stuck inside my head... i even talked this out to Chinny...

according to Wikipedia....
Metrosexual is a term coined in 1994 (along with the noun, metrosexuality) by British journalist Mark Simpson, who used it to refer to an urban male of any sexual orientation who has a strong aesthetic sense and spends a great deal of time and money on his appearance and lifestyle.


Bishōnen ▶(?) (美少年, also transliterated bishounen; literally, "beautiful boy") is a specific Japanese aesthetic concept of the ideally beautiful young man. The prefix bi (美 specifically refers to feminine beauty.
The bishōnen is typically quite slender and not very muscular, with a tapered chin, stylish hair, and an overall effeminate or androgynous appearance.

>>both describes men as effeminate
>>sometimes both words are used or attached to homosexuals (which i find really insulting n_ñ)

>>metrosexuals tend to spend their time and money for the purpose of beauty, hygiene and lifestyle; while bishounens are naturally or born-to-be-with androgynous faces and slender yet manly bodies.

at these point, i have came up with a (stupid) idea that most Bishounens are metrosexuals...

i stumbled on a site full of AIKO's pictures! so cool! here's one:

and here's a Gackt news: He will be featured in the game--Final Fantasy VII: Dirge of Cerberus. yup! but not a singer to perform the main theme but as a character--not as a virtual ego of his but as the real Gackt filmed by a camera! isn't it great?! click here for more!
