Noriko Sakai

  • Name: Sakai Noriko
  • Native name: 酒井法子
  • Nationality: Japanese
  • Gender: Female
  • Born: February 14, 1971
  • Age: 46
is a Japanese pop singer and actress. She was born in Fukuoka, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. She married Yūichi Takasō in 1998, and divorced on July 31, 2010.[1] She and Yūichi have one son, born in 1999.[2] She is particularly popular in Hong Kong and Taiwan. Her best-selling single to date is Aoi Usagi (碧いうさぎ?, "blue rabbit").

Sakai released her debut single, "Otoko no Ko ni Naritai" (男のコになりたい?, "I Want to Be a Boy") on February 5, 1987, nine days short of her sixteenth birthday. Over 40,000 copies of the single were sold. In the early years of her career, she used the nickname Nori-P (のりピー?), although around the mid-1990s she started to distance herself from it.[3][4][5]

Sakai recently re-emerged in the headlines again for a drug scandal in August 2009, where she received a three-year suspended sentence for drug abuse.
