Smartasses Magazine Top 100 - Female EmpowermentMika Nakashima Bio – Smartasses Magazine Mika Nakashima 中島 美嘉 (born February 19, 1983) is a Japanese singer, and actress. Nakashima is the youngest of three children. She grew up in the small town of Hioki, Kagoshima and studied classical Japanese dance. After completing junior high, she decided not to attend high school to begin working instead. At the age of fifteen Nakashima moved to the city of Fukuoka where she shared a room with two others. Nakashima married volleyball player Kunihiro Shimizu on December 25, 2014.

At the age of seventeen, she attended an audition not knowing what it was for, and was chosen from over 3,000 girls to star in the 2001 Fuji TV drama, Kizudarake No Love Song, in which she played the heroine Mirai Shimazaki and sang the theme song, Stars. Her first album, True, released in August 2002, and sold over a million copies in three weeks. In 2002, she received the New Artist of the Year award at the Japan Gold Disc Awards and the Best New Artist of the Year at the All Japan Request Awards. In 2005, Nakashima co-starred in the live-action movie Nana, based on the manga of the same name. In 2010 Nakashima made her US film debut with a small role in the film Resident Evil: Afterlife. She reprised the role for Resident Evil: Retribution. On June 4, 2014, Nakashima released the collaboration single Fighter along with Miliyah Kato, which was chosen to be the theme song for the Japanese version of American film The Amazing Spider-Man 2. A remixed version of the song was also included in the compilation album One Love, One Rhythm for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, as Asia’s theme song for this sports event. Five of her studio albums, one of her mini-albums, and one of her compilation albums have reached number one in Japan’s Oricon album chart.

Nakashima is a frequent visitor to the US for voice-training classes, and once rented an apartment near Wall Street. She contributed to the New Orleans charity tribute when she teamed up with American musicians Cyril Neville and Alan Toussaint to release the single All Hands Together, and as a result of her efforts Nakashima was awarded with honorary citizenship of Memphis and a key to the city. Nakashima has many tattoos, which are considered taboo in Japanese society, including one of a star on her wrist.

Why we think she’s hot:

Fans of her acting abilities loved seeing Nakashima opposite Milla Jovovich in Resident Evil: Afterlife and then reprise the role of J-Pop Girl alongside Michelle Rodriguez in Resident Evil: Retribution… though we always felt if they ever made a film based on the comic book Shi, that Mika would be absolutely perfect for the role. Fans of Mika’s music know that she delivers a sultry mix of blues, pop, alternative and jazz, and camouflages it with an often rough, hardcore style. We’re huge fans of Mika’s ever-diversifying style. It’s all about the contrast, people, and a contrariety of frail & badass, like Mika, is the magic elixir that vaults a chick from sexy, to sexiest.
