Minami Minegishi - Japanese Star Apologises For Sleeping With Boyfriend

Japanese pop star Minami Minegishi has shaved her head as part of an apology to fans after she broke her record label's rules and spent a night with her boyfriend.

The 20 year old, who is a member of the band Akb48, was recently reprimanded by her management team for violating its no-dating rule after she was photographed leaving the apartment of her dancer boyfriend, Alan Shirahama.

And now Minegishi has sought forgiveness by posting a four-minute video on her groups' official website, during which she sobs as she cuts off her long hair - which has long been seen as an act of contrition in the country.

She is quoted by BBC News as saying, "I don't believe just doing this means I can be forgiven for what I did, but the first thing I thought was that I don't want to quit Akb48. If it is possible, I wish from the bottom of my heart to stay in the band. Everything I did is entirely my fault. (My actions were) thoughtless and immature... I am so sorry."
