What is the Song Kimagure Princess About?

What is this song about? It would not be enough if we did not address this part. The song is about a very beautiful princess that wakes up each morning feeling very irritated. She lives in a castle unable to have the life of a princess. She was involved in a one-sided love affair. This selfish princess is left in a very depressing situation. Even though she is described as a sexy princess, she also has a very reckless kind of buying habit. She goes online to do clothes shopping with no plans about how to spend her money wisely. As a result, when she sees the bill, she gets even more upset. Even if the story of the song is not so positive, the song itself is one of the best in the group’s career.

Kimagure Princess helped the group get more popular

Kimagure Princess has sort of a Spanish style beat to it in my opinion but it is one of the best songs in the history of Morning Musume and a great one to dance to and feel good. Kimagure Princess will live on as one of the best songs ever written by any musical group.
