Goto Maki (後藤真希) is a Japanese pop singer, talent, and model currently signed to Avex Trax's sub-label rhythm zone. Goto originally made her debut in 1999 as part of Hello! Project, and was the only third generation member of Morning Musume.

Her combined CD and DVD sales exceed 2 million copies in Japan alone. She was the second best-selling solo artist in Hello! Project. Early in summer 2008, Goto left Hello! Project and moved to the rhythm zone label. Goto's highest selling single is "Ai no Bakayarou" selling 434,790 copies and her lowest selling single is "Secret" selling 14,861 copies.

Goto put her singing career on hold when she went on hiatus in January 2012.[1] She began working as a model and talent for endorsements when she returned in June 2014,[2] but she has not released new music since 2011, though she occasionally appears in special Morning Musume OG performances.

Early Life[edit | edit source]

Goto was born on September 23, 1985 in Edogawa, Tokyo, Japan.

1999-2002: Morning Musume[edit | edit source]

In March 1999, Goto sang Amuro Namie's I HAVE NEVER SEEN at Hirao Music School Music Festival[3](a music/talent training school Goto attended). She said she wanted to be a singer and dancer at this festival.

In June 1999, Tsunku announced the Morning Musume 2nd Tsuika Audition, where he was looking for two new members for Morning Musume. Goto Maki was the only one who passed the audition in August 1999, joining Hello! Project and Morning Musume at 13 years old. She became almost an instant favorite, helping them reach number one with the song "LOVE Machine". She soon established herself as a talented singer and dancer and took the lead on a large number of Morning Musume tracks.

In late 1999, Goto, Yasuda Kei and Ichii Sayaka formed the Morning Musume sub-group Petitmoni. The group released their first single, "Chokotto LOVE", in November 1999.

From 2000 to 2002, Goto participated in various Hello! Project shuffle units: Akagumi 4 in summer 2000, 7nin Matsuri in summer 2001, Sexy 8 in summer 2002.

In March 2001, Goto Maki began her career as a solo artist within Hello! Project. She released her debut single, Ai no Bakayarou", in March 2001, which ranked #1 in the weekly Oricon charts.

In 2002, she graduated from Morning Musume to pursue a solo career and has since released five studio albums, as well as a number of singles. She was also in the Morning Musume ten year anniversary group, Morning Musume Tanjou 10nen Kinentai. She also formed a unit called Gomattou alongside Hello! Project soloists Matsuura Aya and Fujimoto Miki

2003[edit | edit source]

In 2003, Goto participated in the movie Seishun Bakachin Ryorijuku as Koguren Hitomi the main character in the movie. She was also in the unit Nochiura Natsumi alongside Abe Natsumi and Matsuura Aya

2004[edit | edit source]

All Hello! Project members participated in the unit H.P. All Stars and released the single ALL FOR ONE & ONE FOR ALL!

2005[edit | edit source]

In mid-2005, Goto was part of the unit DEF.DIVA

2007[edit | edit source]

In 2007, Goto released the CD "Kirari 10-dai! Meisaku wo Yomou" which also featured Nakazawa Yuko and Yaguchi Mari. It features their radio play "Kirari 10-dai" which aired on NHK Radio.

From April 24 to April 30, Goto starred in the play Yokosuka Story alongside Satoda Mai.[4]

On October 28, UP-FRONT AGENCY abruptly announced to media that Goto had decided to graduate from Hello! Project following the last show of her Goto Maki LIVE TOUR 2007 G-EmotionII ~How to use SEXY~ that would take place that same evening at Omiya Sonic City. Her graduation was in response to her brother, Goto Yuki's arrest, as well as different ideas in the direction of her singing career.[5] Later in 2007, after her sudden Hello! Project graduation, rumors surfaced the very next day stating that Avex's CEO, Max Matsuura, had shown interest in signing Goto. During Goto's brother trial, she disappeared from the media's eye.

2008[edit | edit source]

On March 25, Maki re-opened her blog during her stay in Los Angeles, where she studied and practiced different types of song and dance, including R&B, jazz and hip-hop. Her blog didn't include any reference to UP-FRONT AGENCY (but was still on the same address), and it was assumed that her contract with UP-FRONT AGENCY had expired on March 1st and was not renewed as expected. Her last blog entry was on April 22.

On June 19, after many rumors had circulated, it was released to the press that Goto Maki had signed with the record label rhythm zone under Avex.

Maki debuted with Avex when she participated in the company's shareholders' meeting on June 22nd, singing a cover of Whitney Houston's "Saving All My Love for You." She also participated in a-nation'08 (Osaka on August 24th and Tokyo on August 31st) alongside Kumi Koda, Ai Otsuka, EXILE, Ami Suzuki, AAA, TVXQ, Namie Amuro, and Ayumi Hamasaki, among others. On a-nation, she performed the self-written song "Hear me", a song unreleased to the date, drawing media attention for the first time since her graduation.

2009[edit | edit source]

The SWEET BLACK Project was a cross-media collaboration between J-WAVE, Avex and Mixi. Goto Maki herself chose the logo and the name, which is meant to reflect the “positive and negative” side of the life of today’s women.

On January 5, J-WAVE premiered SWEET BLACK Girls, a 15 minute segment hosted by Goto Maki and Ryu as part of the popular radio show PLATOn. The show aired Mon-Fri and focused on the life of women in their twenties. Reception was extremely good, as 30,000 messages were received during the first week alone.

To complete the project, Mixi, the most used networking community in Japan, opened a special space for SWEET BLACK, and Avex launched a web-documentary on YouTube based on Goto’s daily routine as a singer. Immediate success was admittedly beyond expectations.

On January 21, Goto released her first digital single with Avex, "Fly away". The lyrics, penned by Goto herself, are based on Mambo, a story written by young author Hitomi Kanehara, who won the Akutagawa Prize for her 2003 novel Hebi ni Pierce (Snakes and Earrings).

One month later, on February 25, Goto released her second digital single, "Lady-Rise", also penned by herself. This time, Goto collaborated with Sakurazawa Erika, a Japanese manga author whose works are mostly published in josei magazines (comics targeted to young women).

On March 7, Maki modeled in Japan’s biggest fashion event, TOKYO GIRLS COLLECTION.

2010[edit | edit source]

After a brief hiatus, Goto returned to the music scene announcing her official debut (as opposed to her collaboration with SWEET BLACK). The mini-album ONE was released on July 28, featuring five new songs. Goto put on a mini-live, which was recorded and streamed live online, in which she discussed the album and performed three songs.

As promotion for this release, Goto appeared on several TV shows. One particular show, Kinyoubi no Sumatachi e, aired a 2-hour special on her life and included interviews with Goto as well as a performance of one of her new songs, "hanauta", written for her mother who passed away. This episode reached 19.3% ratings for the show, making it the most watched program of the day.

2011[edit | edit source]

On May 2, Goto appeared on the TV show Kamisun!.

On June 22, she announced on her official website that she would be going on hiatus in January 2012. In her blog, she described that she had been looking at her life differently since her mother passed away, and she needed a hiatus to find herself again.[1][6]

On September 30, Goto Maki attended Takahashi Ai's graduation concert.

On August 2, an official website for Goto Maki’s pre-hiatus last concert titled G-Emotion FINAL opened.[7]

On October 16, she made a surprise guest appearance with Tsuji Nozomi at the Dream Morning Musume Concert Tour 2011 Aki no Mai ~Zoku Sotsugyousei DE Saikessei~.[8]

On October 17, Goto opened a temporary Ameba blog. The blog was opened for 510 hours (Goto = 510), which was roughly 21 days.

On December 4, her last concert G-Emotion FINAL ~for you~ before her last hiatus was streamed live and was open to watch for a small fee. At her last concert, Dream Morning Musume appeared and sang "LOVE Machine".

2012[edit | edit source]

On March 10, Dream Morning Musume held their Dream Morning Musume Special LIVE 2012 Nippon Budokan ~Dai Isshou Shuumaku "Yuusha Tachi, Shuugou Seyo"~. Current Morning Musume members, and OG members, Ishiguro Aya and Tsuji Nozomi made their guest appearance. Moreover, Goto Maki who had been on indefinite hiatus since the end of last year, made a surprise appearance. For this day’s live, a total of 24 former and current Morning Musume members got together on the stage.

2013[edit | edit source]

On February 21, Goto Maki returned to only promote Monster Hunter for Capcom.[9]

2014[edit | edit source]

On April 21, Goto made an appearance at an event for the 10th anniversary of Monster Hunter.

On April 28, Goto Maki opened a new Ameba blog.[10]

She officially resumed entertainment activities on June 25 as a chief curator for the web magazine Alifis.[11][2] The next day, she performed live for the first time in two years in the TV Tokyo Music Festival 2014 for a Morning Musume OG reunion.[12]

2018[edit | edit source]

On March 23, Goto modeled for the fashion site &Co. with her two-year-old daughter, who made her modeling debut.[13][14]

On June 27, Goto performed live for the first time in four years in the TV Tokyo Musical Festival 2018 with other Morning Musume OG members.[15]

2019[edit | edit source]

On March 13, the gossip tabloid Bunshun Online (the official site for Shukan Bunshun magazine) reported Goto had recently reconnected with an ex-boyfriend and was carrying on an affair, with the two checking in at Tokyo's Apa Hotel for a sexual encounter on the night of February 22 and the morning of February 23. Her husband had filed a lawsuit against the man seeking 3.3 million yen in damages. However, the man claimed he was not in violation of any rights because Goto's marriage had gone through a breakdown and her husband was abusive. Goto's agency confirmed there was a lawsuit, but made no further comments on the report.[16] That evening, Goto released an official apology on her blog in which she admitted to the affair, but denied she was being domestically abused, saying her ex-boyfriend was misled by how she described her fights with her husband. She said she was reflecting her mistakes as a wife and a mother, for deeply wounding the feelings and betraying the trust of her husband with her actions. After frequent discussions, "he was able to forgive and accept someone like [her]," and they started spending more time together to restore their marriage. From this point on, Goto said they would do their utmost effort in public and private to support each other even more as husband and wife by nurturing their household and children.[17][18]

2020[edit | edit source]

On April 15, she opened up two YouTube channels, one for gaming and one for beauty.[19][20]

On September 30, she performed "Ai no Bakayarou" at the TV Tokyo Music Festival 2020, and also collaborated with AKB48 to perform a special medley of "Aitakatta", "Flying Get", and "Heavy Rotation" on the program.[21]

Personal Life[edit | edit source]

Goto has two older sisters and a younger brother named Yuki. Her father passed away in 1996 from a fall while mountaineering, and her grandmother passed away in 2005. On October 20, 2007, Goto Yuki, Goto Maki's younger brother and former member of the duo EE Jump, was arrested. He and two accomplices, aged 18 and 19, had broken into a construction site in Edogawa, Tokyo on July 15 and made off with 80 reels of electric cable worth approximately 1 million yen. According to FLASH magazine, Goto and one of her brother's accomplices had been romantically involved for some time, after the two met at Yuki's wedding in 2005. Due to the circumstances surrounding the robbery scandal, they haven't been in contact with each other. The incident eventually led to Goto Maki's graduation from Hello! Project.[5] On January 23, 2010, Goto witnessed the death of her mother, Goto Tokiko, in their home in Edogawa, Tokyo. Her death was apparently caused by a fatal fall from the third story of their house while Tokiko was under the influence of alcohol. Goto herself found her at around 11 PM, and she was rushed to the hospital before passing away on the January 24. A funeral service was held on the January 28, which was attended by several former Hello! Project members.[22]

In mid-2014 various news sources reported that Goto would be marrying a non-celebrity who was three years her junior. Goto confirmed the news on her blog on July 22, 2014.[23] On June 17, 2015, Goto announced on her blog that she was pregnant with her first child.[24] On December 7, Goto gave birth to a baby girl.[25] On October 31, 2016, Goto announced she was five months pregnant with her second child, due in the following spring.[26] She gave birth to a son on March 24, 2017.[27]
