I loved this interview, so I figured I’d share with you guys~ Please credit me if you post my translation elsewhere.
AYUMI HAMASAKI - Numero Tokyo (2014-10)
Her first appearance in Numéro Tokyo since she tied the knot. What kind of life is she living now—? After finishing her Premium Showcase, which lasted from spring to summer, she took a short break in Hawaii.
With a slight tan and in casual wear, she walks through town normally. With a smile, she comments she hardly ever is recognized as “Ayumi Hamasaki” and is usually addressed in English when she walks with her cap low over her eyes and with her husband by her side.
"Ayu, where are you now?"
"Did you really get married?"
"Are you happy?"
The answers to those questions are clear to us when we see her walk through town with her husband and when we see her smile throughout the photo shoot.
"My close friends ask me those kind of questions too sometimes (laughs). I also wrote this in Trauma’s lyrics, but, I’ve always wondered: "To who should I show today’s happy face and today’s sad face?" In other words, I’m not very good at explaining myself. That’s why my friends often ask me "Why won’t you tell me anything?" I don’t say it or can’t say it or don’t know which points I should say. I’m not good with advice either. I always only tell people the outcome. Because I want to decide the process myself. My current partner is the same in that respect. We don’t interfere with each other’s work. We encourage and support each other to live up to our own standards of work. That’s our approach. That’s comfortable to us."

I haven’t done photo manipulation for so long that I almost forgot how fun it was. xD
「 Lady Dynamite 」Sorry, but will you just shut up?
We women can’t even be heard
If you really want to speak
Then ask your mommies, boys
