We may have a new hero: Miyuki Hatoyama. While boring first ladies like Michelle and Carla like to remain prim and proper, Miyuki enjoys breaking boundaries, like confessing she was kidnapped by aliens.
Though most people are fascinated by the economic and political repercussions of Japan's latest election, we're more intersted in Mrs. Hatoyama and how she will no doubt forever change what it means to be a first lady.
In a book published last year, Hatoyama readily admits that she met her husband while she was still married to her first husband, discusses her time in an all-female theaterical troupe and, yes, spills the beans about her time on a space ship:
While my body was asleep, I think my soul rode on a triangular-shaped UFO and went to Venus. It was a very beautiful place, and it was very green.
So cute! In addition to space travel, Mrs. Hatoyama enjoys pottery, cooking and Tom Cruise. Apparently she and the Hollywood star met in a previous life, when he was Japanese. Hmmm, perhaps that shit movie, The Last Samurai, wasn't so off the mark.
