The real question is. Are Japanese Idols crazy?
Many Japanese Idols in anime/video games have turned out to have some psychological disorder. For example Sayaka Maizono from Danganronpa and Misa Amane from Death Note.

Well idols aren't showcased for their intelligence, so I wouldn't know. But I highly doubt ALL of them are dumb. Some of them maybe.

Probably some, sure.

But from what I have heard, the idol business is ruthless in Japan, so you would have to be pretty dedicated to it. If that's what it is really like, I think that is actually pretty admirable.

It's the same with some western idols.

Everyone wants their five seconds of glory, sometimes those seconds just last longer for some people.
Idols and pop stars are going to be a thing, and people just want something pretty to look at to distract them, or to fulfill a desire of themselves to obtain something greater that they never will.
To say living a dream is dumb usually means that you've yet to fulfill your dreams and desires.
The only nice thing is that at the end of the day, you have a fairly steady job and a good education, and probably don't have to go into porn after your pop career is over! Then again getting into a pop career may be a better option due to lack of options, such as a poor family or average grades.
Plus we wouldn't have some awesome opening and closing theme songs if there were no pop idols!

No, no. They just pretend to be.
No one wants an idol smarter than their fans. It's all for the sake of being moe.

I am sure there are some idiots but at least a few have gone to prestigious universities. So I don't think it would be fair to say all idols are idiots, they are probably are told act cute and pretend to be air heads.
I did find Nakamata Shiori & Natsuki Sato from AKB48 attend Waseda University.

They are actually reasonably smart if they're able to apply talents like singing, dancing, and people skills for a legitimate paying job, eh?

Of course, if they're super busy, they won't be keeping up with the latest political news, so they tend not to know about that stuff. That's why they bat their eyes if they're asked questions about Ukraine or whatever.

Considering how hard it is to be an idol over there, I wouldn't be surprised if most of them are pretty intelligent. A lot of time goes into lessons and routines and you have to be able to memorize an awful lot, so I'm sure their IQ for the most part is pretty good. Someone that's honestly stupid probably wouldn't be able to keep up with even half of that.
