Rico Yan: The magic and the inspiration

Rico Yan: The magic and the inspiration

The only person in my mind the past days was only other than, Rico Yan. He was only the person I could relied to speak of my mind. Whenever I got to speak with him in my dreams, he would made me to wake me up.

My wildest dreams was complicated now that I am still dreaming if I can achieve it. No one will know but the God speaks the truth if I can still join. Somehow along the roads I will fill up to my shoes, there would be a right time to know about the truth.

Rico has someone I knew that we also have common friends. But I will not mention to this article. I am aware what I am writing about anything against negative. The only thoughts at the back of my head are all about positive thoughts and a good vibes also. Nevertheless, I speak from my words.

I really don’t write filipino in articles. Rest as someone of you know me already. But the rest of the society will come and wait what is in my mind. Rico is all about the magic and the inspiration. He was truly the icon in the Philippines.

Now it’s time for me that I also have to move on with my feelings with him. I’ve accepted the things he is no longer with us anymore. But his magic will spread more even more wider and wider. The new generation will also follow him in the time he will remember. Not everyone in the country knows him today. But the inspiration he made for his followers, his fans and to his friends also were all the knowledge he had.

The first time I met him, he was really good looking guy, spiritually and very friendly. And I didn’t know that he was spontaneous that time. He was really a good friend. He came it up and said to me, ‘one day, we will talk about you.’ He said to me that time. But the time he died on March 29, 2002, that was Good Friday. I was really shocked and still in denial. And I couldn’t coped up and I didn’t believe it either. It was rest assure that I led my life through him.

October 4, 2012, two years ago when I finally met Rico Yan’s family and his relatives also. By the time I knew that time last two years. I was really shocked. His male cousin I didn’t know come at the back of my head that I was really shocked.

In times when we were in grief and anger to our hearts, I eventually knew his untimely death. But I didn’t want to bring that issue in this article. It was to prevent some malicious words I would speak of. And I am aware what I am writing about. And I am happy to say that I was his avid fan.

In my work, everyone knew about me and my idol – Rico Yan. I made my acceptance three years ago when I finally moved on that I’ve had a disability being having with Down syndrome. And also it has been two years already that I moved on without him by our sides. He didn’t give up to his life. He only left us to this world to leave his message and said, ‘I would be leaving this world if I’ve served as an inspiration.

Thank you, Rico, for saving my life back then. And thank you that you didn’t give up. Now it is time for me that I would also serve as an inspiration for everybody living today. I would follow you whenever I go. And just what you have said to me, ‘go out and find yourself even better.‘ And the acceptance for me you was inevitable between the two of us. You are a truly inspiration icon. And I will be honor if the time permits me to go after my wildest dreams.

Taylor Alison Swift was her real name. But in fact, we all know her known as Taylor Swift. Taylor Swift was born on 13th of December, 1989. She was raised in Pennsylvania but moved to Nashville, Tennessee. That was the hometown of home-grown talented artists in the area.

 

Taylor Swift

Taylor Swift

 

Little I knew about her when I heard her song of Love Story. Her upbeat song Love Story was a mighty heart that drives me away. I couldn’t explained how she raised from her fame. Her beauty is gaining all teenagers to listen to her music as well. But the Love Story single came from her second album Fearless. Her first self-titled album Taylor Swift debuted in 2006, but her second album Fearless came around late of 2008. It was a hit album, probably most of her age was a phenomenon female singer with a compassion writing on her own songs as well. Then her most requested songs White Horse, You Belong With Me and Fearless grew phenomenon as well here in the Philippines.

 

Her third studio album Speak Now came around in late of 2010. Her best songs I’ve heard her from her was Back to December, The Story of Us and Ours. And the rest of her third studio album I’ve didn’t chance to listen the whole studio album. And the fourth studio album Red also came in late of 2012. The hits I’ve listened from the radio, television or airwaves was We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together and Red.

 

Taylor Swift was a sweet soul female singer I’ve listen mostly from her heart. And I guarantee that this female singer would be last through generation to generation. Hope me if I am correct or wrong. And Taylor was been dated by some of the famous celebrities who Joe Jonas, Taylor Lautner, John Mayer, Jake Gyllenhaal and from One Direction singer, Harry Styles. And she already landed some of the movies I’ve watched already were Hannah Montana: The Movie in 2009 and Lorax in 2012 who gave the voice of Audrey.

 

She bagged numerous awards already everywhere in the music industry and almost saved the music industry. Taylor Swift is one of the songwriters I’ve listened from her. And you dig her own style of singing songs in her generation today.

They were unknown celebrities everywhere I go. Once I step on the entertainment industry, it must be my calling for me to get in. Maybe that was why I’ve had several pictures I saw from them.

 

One from GMA channel I saw, before when my grandparents’ had celebrating their 65th anniversary last March 30, 2013, was none other than German Moreno. German Moreno I knew in my life. I’ve watched his That’s Entertainment television show before. I was glued watching too many shows when I was a kid.

 

Celebrities of 2013

Celebrities of 2013

 

The only celebrities I’ve remembered from That’s Entertainment was from Monday group: Francis Magalona, Lotlot de Leon, Isabel Granada, Ruffa Gutierrez, Aiko Melendez, Carmina Villaroel, Ian Veneracion, Isko Moreno and Assunta de Rossi; from Tuesday group: Rita Avila, Billy Joe Crawford, Donna Cruz, Jean Garcia, Maricar de Mesa, Ara Mina, Dingdong Avanzado, Jessa Zaragoza, Janno Gibbs, Manilyn Reynes, Ana Roces, Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes; from Wednesday group: Rachel Alejandro, Jojo Alejar, Sharmaine Arnaiz, Sheryl Cruz, Sunshine Cruz, Karla Estrada, Jennifer Mendoza and Romnick Sarmienta; from Thursday group: Harlene Bautista (sister of Herbert Bautista), Keempee de Leon, Vina Morales, Lea Salonga, Smokey Manoloto and Jennifer Sevilla; and from Friday group: Sunshine Dizon, Kier Legaspi, Glydel Mercado, Kristine Paner, Donita Rose and Cris Villanueva. They were only 42 celebrities I knew from That’s Entertainment and the rest of the cast of That’s Entertainment. I didn’t know much of some their fame in the entertainment industry.

 

Only the remaining names I knew in the entertainment industry were Francis Magalona who died from Leukemia in March 6, 2009, Ruffa Gutierrez, Carmina Villaroel, Assunta de Rossi, Billy Crawford, Ara Mina, Janno Gibbs, Judy Ann Santos, Gladys Reyes, Karla Estrada, Vina Morales and Donita Rose. They were those celebrities I knew that was still in the entertainment industry. If you are correct and I am wrong, just state the reason why I should put their name here that is still active in the entertainment industry.

 

Also Leo Martinez I also saw from my glimpse. It was one early morning around 6:30 am. Leo dropped and parked his car near the tricycle terminal in Cainta Greenpark Village where I was cleaning the school premises.

 

And other celebrities like Angel Aquino, Xyriel Manabat, Sofia Millares and Ina Feleo I had seen in this year of 2013.

 

I saw Angel Aquino twice already but I didn’t have a chance to get glimpse picturing with her. It was long time ago when I first saw her in Southwoods hosting some of an event. Sofia and Xyriel visited the Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines for their guest appearances that DSAPI invited them to come for their numbers. But I got a chance to have picture with them also.

 

The only celebrities that I didn’t have pictures were Angel Aquino and Ina Feleo. Once in a blue moon, those celebrities came into my eyes. And I said to myself, “they were too many celebrities I saw this year of 2013. But sometimes it is a calling for me when will I enter the entertainment industry.

 

Then again, I’ve ask myself again, “when will the light of entertainment industry will come to me? Is this a calling to me?” I’ve asked too many questions every day at the front of the mirror. Setting aside from photographer, an artist, a writer, a dancer and an entrepreneur from my everyday I always do, there are many chances that I will get to enter the entertainment industry. And one question is when?

Victoria Lorna Aluquin-Fernandez is her real name. But we always call her mostly known as Lorna Tolentino. Lorna Tolentino or L.T. for her abbreviation, was born on December 23, 1961. She turned 52 years old today.

 

We saw Lorna Tolentino growing up as a child actress, then turned up a good actress, a host, an executive producer and a widow of Rudy Fernandez. She gave birth to two wonderful sons, Ralph and Renz Fernandez. But she was also a stepmother to Mark Anthony Fernandez who Rudy Fernandez had a child to another woman. But that is another story from Rudy Fernandez.

 

Lorna had numerous movies in her belt already and also grabbed many awards in the past. From her latest television series Genesis will end soon on Friday which it is slated in evening series. Lorna has worked many projects from RPN channel, GMA Network, ABS-CBN and TV5. One television series I’ve remembered that I watched was Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin (One Great Love) where she portrayed as Alondra Sebastiano-Del Tierro. And she also worked together with Coco Martin, Maja Salvador, Andi Eigenmann, Martin del Rosario and John Estrada. Amy Austria-Ventura, Tonton Gutierrez, Boots Anson-Roa, Ronaldo Valdez and Dante Rivero was also there for supporting cast.

 

She did 34 television cameos and 75 movie appearances in various film projects. And Lorna did as an executive producer with 7 projects under her belt. With 19 awards to her name, Lorna has also 40 nominations today.

 

I didn’t know all about Lorna Tolentino. But I guess I just want to write to her fame from her numerous projects already. If I have a project, maybe I will include her in the future. Or maybe that I am willing to take a risk to gain my own name. Soon, but not later, and it will come to me some time in the future for me.

 

One of the old movies Lorna did in 1990’s was Patayin Sa Sindak Si Barbara (Kill Barbara in Shock). She shared the film with Antoinette Taus, my ultimate crush before. But now, Antoinette resides in California in present times. And Lorna also did twice in Mano Po series in Mano Po 5: Gua Ai Di that was last shown in 2006 and Mano Po 2: My Home in 2003. Lorna joined with Jiro Manio in Magnifico last shown in 2003. But the last she was seen in television series of Genesis where Lorna did portraying as a president of the Philippines leaving the planet going to the spaceship with someone she really shared to love with. But somehow at the end of the series won’t be in top of my list. Because I haven’t watch Genesis yet. Sorry to bother you.

This isn’t the best time to write this journal studio. Well, perhaps I might be personally want to enter the entertainment industry in United States. Here in the Philippines, perhaps I might enter in the entertainment industry. But I keep my eye either of the two. Because in the America, you are entering the new age, the new chapter and the new segment to your life.

 

Yes, I might be sound weird to you but this is my journal studio. First of all, this is not an idea purely either to my blog writes the other days or the other months. I might be pursuing in abroad well to get paid and have to bring all my savings back in the Philippines.

 

I love English language. I love how to write in English. Well, I’m not English or American either. I’m a Filipino. Secondly, I am endeavor to change my world in the next four years in my life. Hmm…I might be sound interesting either.

 

To all hosts in America or to Ellen DeGeneres perhaps, I want to be include in your shows. Well personally, I don’t have television in my room right now. Because we are terribly having experiencing cable connections inside our house. How can you install the cable connection which costs you 5,000 pesos to install it back the cable operator, the Skycable owned by Manny Pangilinan. Hmm…but second on thoughts, Manny is manipulating all the Filipinos to buy the 5,000 installer of cable to have your cable back to your television.

 

Third, I don’t want to surprise all the hosts to read about my blog instead. Filipinos are Filipinos. Americans are Americans. Don’t discriminate the fact we are not different. We are, in fact, all human beings in the planet called earth. People misjudged some other people ethnic groups, religions or any other derogatory words perhaps. I might be not an intelligent. But I have a pure heart. Because I have what it takes.

 

Fifth to be honest, I have Down syndrome. Probably you won’t understand how I feel I want to be entertaining to all of you. When I was born, I was diagnosed with condition of mosaic Down syndrome. Later in my teenage years, I had to discover something different. And being different made you stronger. That was when I was in sophomore year in high school. My biology teacher said that I’ve had Down syndrome. I went home and asked my parents. But to tell the truth, it wasn’t good expectations after all.

 

Sixth, the denial stage came afterwards. I was expecting to enroll either of top universities in the Philippines like University of the Philippines (UP), University of Santo Tomas (UST) or De La Salle University (DLSU). All of them entered to my world devouring to me. Yes, I was criticized by my mom that I won’t able to finish on time. She couldn’t believe me that I could finish my studies. To tell the truth, I was depressed and frustrated.

 

Frustration came afterwards when I’ve had to graduate with a culinary certificate in a culinary school. In a culinary school of CCA or Center for Culinary Arts. I met a lot of people. And from them, I grew stronger besides them. My frustration have eaten me after graduation. I was expecting to enroll in music in UST, theater arts in UP or any related courses from both of them in DLSU. I was about to force myself studying more in entertainment field.

 

But not long enough came after me. It took me 13 years to realize that I wasn’t alone. Being having with a condition of being having with Down syndrome, I’ve proved to them I could change and surprise them. I’ve joined in an organization of Down Syndrome Association of the Philippines last February 2012. And the fact was, in fact, that I began enjoying my life afterwards.

 

Living positivity in life is my number one strength. And believing in myself is also my strength. Conquering the fears having feeling I am alone was already gone inside of me. Something tells me that I am purely new again. Two years and three months, I’ve conquered my fears becoming a role model to all my fellow Filipinos, being having with as a disability. But to tell you the truth, I am now as an assistant teacher in Reaching Our Children for the King (ROCK) Integrated School. Full-time assistant teacher perhaps I want to be called. Something new is quite newer to me.

 

This is a quite journey for me. Having to realize what is important to me that I am a role model already each and every sides of being with disability. Last January 2013, I forced myself to support the organization group of Angels Walk. It was a group of Autism Society of the Philippines. I’ve supported the group of which I became a member of DSAPI last December 2012. And a set of new blessings in 2013 came afterwards later in my life. I’ve had a job now which it prolonged breaking my jobless in seven years and seven months. Then I was back in shape as well. I lost 30 pounds just to get in a job that suited me as well and now that I was enjoying in my job.

 

My chances in my wish list next year will be added furthermore. My next wishes have to be happen next year would be that I have to enter in entertainment industry in America and help back in my country Philippines to conquer jobless converting to have jobs. And my advocacy have added prior to my choices: the special education. My home organization, DSAPI and other supported organizations as well will change my life in fact to the fullest. I may be not younger anymore, but someday I leave my words to them. To have and to join with them, in fact, are my advocacy today.

 

Ellen, if you are reading my personal note, please take time to call me or have to record a new video call next time if you want to meet me. I want to enter the entertainment industry because I love English movies. In fact, that’s where my passion begins with.

 

**PS. Please someone has to send this to Ellen DeGeneres. I’m really appreciate for what you are doing to my wishes. Thanks and God bless you!**

We all know about Jessy Mendiola was one of the new prettiest faces in the ABS-CBN. She was topped of her show Paraiso where she played as Yanie Alipio-Galang to her opposite actor Matteo Guidecelli as Brennan Galang. Paraiso ended since the last airing episode on April 5, 2013. With 108 episodes of Paraiso, it started since on November 5, 2013. Jessica Mendiola Tawile was her real name. She was born on December 3, 1992. Her zodiac sign was Sagittarius and her Chinese new year was Year of the Monkey.

 

I first saw Jessy in the television series of Katorse where she played as Bettina. The main characters in Katorse were Erich Gonzales, Ejay Falcon, Xian Lim and Enchong Dee. But she was given to do her role in Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo where she played as Christina and given a chance to recurring her role together with the co-star Coco Martin and Gerald Anderson.

 

The truth was that I really liked her from the start of the television series of Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo. She was really my type of mestiza girl. Well I didn’t know of her beauty of all the average she was in. She was also given to play many roles in Maaalaala Mo Kaya episodes where she got seven roles from seven episodes.

 

But the real score in the entertainment industry, Jessy was given a chance to play as Sabel Asuncion-Zaragoza to the opposite leading actors Joseph Marco and the late actor AJ Perez. The television series ended with 70 episodes that ran from December 6, 2010 to March 11, 2011. AJ Perez was given a body award later in his life when he got in car accident in a faithful Good Friday coming from the taping in the province. Unlike Rico Yan, AJ Perez was closely have a look-a-like face to Rico. Despite with his image, AJ never thought he would be acclaimed as the favorite young actor in the young audience.

 

Jessy was given another chance to portray for the role of Jackie Marasigan in the television series of Budoy. The main characters in Budoy were Gerald Anderson, Jessy Mendiola and Enrique Gil. Jessy played as the best friend of Budoy who have had mental problems. Unlike me, the television series were one of the intrigues in the ABS-CBN’s top favorite television series in 2011-2012. Budoy ran 110 episodes that started from October 10, 2011 to March 9, 2012. And despite with the rumors of Budoy, many in the organizations loved the television series but I wasn’t get home earlier despite of my busy schedule in my new job of networking deals. I didn’t manage to watch most of the episodes and didn’t have time to finish of the television series. So I really didn’t know about the television series.

 

In her last television series of Precious Hearts Romances: Paraiso, it was the hot-thrilling television series in the afternoon soap operas. Her leading actor was Matteo Guidecelli. In one of hot-thrilling acclaiming television series of Paraiso, I saw one of the extra characters in the television series was none other than my cousin Ciara Pirote. She was really type of the girl who really wanted to go to the entertainment industry. But the thing she was still in college years.

 

And there was another television series that ABS-CBN gave a chance to Jessy to portray as Maria Mercedes in this part of second half of 2013. I can’t wait to watch the remake of Maria Mercedes.

 

She appeared 31 television appearances already and have had one movie appearance of The Reunion.

Jessy Mendiola

What I know about Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba

Jessica Alba was the famous child actress that ever got in a role as a Alex Mack when she got the role for the movie screen of The Secret World of Alex Mack. During her years as a child actress, Jessica Marie Alba was born in the American dreams. She was touted as the sexiest actress when I remembered she got the role as an Invisible Girl in the movie of Fantastic Four. She was born on April 28, 1981. Her zodiac sign was Taurus and her Chinese New Year was the Year of the Rooster.

 

Jessica played various roles in throughout her years naming of her films such as Never Been Kissed (1999), Honey as Honey Daniels (2003), Fantastic Four (2005), Into the Blue (2005), Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer (2007), Good Luck Chuck (2007), The Eye (2008), Meet Bill (2008), Little Fockers (2010), Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World (2011) and her latest movie of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2013).

 

Her breakthrough role as a gail in her first movie of Camp Nowhere in 1994 made as the new girl on the block. But despite her success making in her movies, I wasn’t seen her after she made the role for Kirsten in the movie of Never Been Kissed. She was pretty although she was really a good actress.

 

I was glad that I saw her once again in the movie of Honey. Being as Honey Daniels she was playing for the character, it was my first time that I saw her as a potential star. Jessica really made for her successful years to come. Not until that I knew, she was also part of the Sin City in 2005. But the movie of Sin City didn’t like my conscience to watch the movie.

 

What I really liked about Jessica Alba? She played as a Sue Storm or alternative ego as the Invisible Girl in the movie of Marvel comics’ Fantastic Four in 2005. During her fame in her years of 2005 really made her the sexiest lady in the planet that topped in the FHM magazine. Well not that I know about, because I have the collection. I have stopped collecting and buying FHM magazines in 2006.

 

Well of course, everybody knows Jessica Alba. And I have a friend. She was a girl. And that my friend was exclusively looking for the right Jessica Alba in her entire life. What I mean was she was not a lesbian. She really adored much of Jessica Alba.

 

I have seen Jessica Alba in her sexiest role in one of her movies was Into the Blue that was released also in 2005. She played as Sydney. And after movie of Fantastic Four, she returned to the movie screen again for the sequel for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Sulfur in 2007.

 

In 2010, Jessica played as Andi Garcia in one of the comedy movie of Little Fockers. And she also played as a spy playing Marissa Wilson in Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World.

 

Jessica Alba paved way of her successful career when she got the role from the television series of Dark Angel that ran from 2000 to 2002. She also won four awards already in her career.

Rico Yan 2

Rico Yan 2

Rico Yan was an actor during his prime time days. He did a various roles already that included his last movie of Got 2 Believe. He gained as the best actor after he died in Los Palmas, Palawan on the day of Good Friday, March 29, 2002.

 

Eleven years after, we all have had missing him so much. For entire of his life, he touched and inspired many actors in his generation. That included AJ Perez who really inspired Rico Yan so much. But he also died. Antonello Joseph Perez or AJ Perez we all known him. His career made him the last taping of his life was the MMK or Maaalaala Mo Kaya episode of Tsinelas.

 

We all endured both actors that inspired us. But despite their deaths, their success maybe got a long way if they were still living up to the present times.

 

If Rico still lives amongst us, he will continue to live his legacy amongst us. He will be doing the projects that made the television series and movies a blockbuster. From the series of Walang Hanggan, he will portraying Daniel that could replace Coco Martin. But in return, Coco Martin did his all best to be the best actor in this generation already. Or maybe he could do some movies that some writers could relate into.

 

Or maybe Rico would play the role of being Sir Chief in the most successful daytime television series of Please Be Careful With My Heart. Jodi Santa Maria was once working with Gimik days along side with Dominic Ochoa, Giselle Toengi, Marvin Agustin and the rest of the Gimik cast. What if Rico would tell to Maya, “I love you” and Maya would answered back, “I love you too.”

 

Or maybe Rico would love to do some movie projects of many things we would like him to do the most he would like to portray. That makes sense.

 

What if Rico Yan still lives amongst us?

 

He would continue his business chains of Tequila Joe’s and some of his brightest ideas. I do too have many brainstorming ideas. But Rico and I have different ways of thinking the point of views in life.

 

He would considering to enter the politics just like his grandfather. I also do have politics bloodline. But the thing is that I really don’t consider entering politics. Politics are much like the battleground for me. And mostly all my relatives from my father’s side have politics side. That includes the Osmenas.

 

I would love to enter the entertainment industry as I always dream to be an actor just like Rico Yan. Being as a versatile actor would love to act in many ways. Despite his image was an angelic and very charm for the audience, every of avid fans of him followed him anywhere.

 

Rico Yan Foundation was released in 2002 as my friends told me about it. Because I was also a member of the group page of I will always remember Rico Yan in facebook groups. If you are not a member yet, better to join the group of I will always remember Rico Yan in facebook. Mostly admins would allow to post in the group as anything to form of Rico, photos for example or anything that relates to Rico. Anything that it didn’t fall in the rules and regulations, you were not allow to enter the group site and you will be ban immediately. As I’ve recalled one thing, there was a member who posted a networking post and it was banned from the group immediately. Oh, and more advice, you are not allowed to type negative feelings towards to other members. All of the members in the group respect to each other.

 

Rico stood 5’9″ tall and he was really a charming and amazing actor. You will be surprise that he will caught you for giving him a glimpse for his looks. And to tell you honestly, he will love to poke and joke around. Rico was a comedian and also a good actor.

 

As I remembered him very well, Rico was an amazing person inside and out. I met him once. But I never have had a chance to talk to him in a long conversation. We have met in one simulation before during I was a waiter during my culinary years. Half of the batch were in the kitchen and half of the batch were in the dining. All of us were having a good time when he have had time visiting in my culinary school.

Carmen Electra

Carmen Electra

We all know Carmen Electra as the girl for men’s dreams. But sometimes I might also get dreaming about her. In the same time, Carmen was all men’s dreams. Tara Leigh Patrick was her real name, but we called her in her name as Carmen Electra.

 

It was my first time that I watched Baywatch series during 1990’s together with my siblings and my parents of course. I ran off from my room going inside of my parent’s room. But as long as it goes, it finally pave my way when I get dreaming of her and also Pamela Anderson. Both of them were in the Baywatch series. But we didn’t know about much about her. Carmen was born on April 20, 1972. Her birthday lies today. Her zodiac sign was also interchanging between Aries and Taurus. It was the same thoughts for me because my birthday lies between Pisces and Aquarius. Her chinese new year was the Year of the Rat.

 

Carmen was one of the chosen playmates in the Playboy magazines in the past. But she also appeared in some of the movies I knew. Her film appearances I only knew of her were Good Burger (1997), Starky & Hutch (2004), Cheaper by the Dozen 2 (2005), Scary Movie 4 (2006) and Epic Movie (2007). The only series I watched of her was the memorable Baywatch series that runs from 1989 to 1999 that she played as Lani McKenzie only from 1998-1999. Along side in the Baywatch series were David Hasselhoff, Pamela Anderson, Alexandra Paul and  Jeremy Jackson.

 

Carmen was not only as a model she was covering for the Playboy cover but she was also an actress, dancer, television personality, singer and entertainer. Did you know the she can sing? Of course not, as if you already know about her. That was why I put her in one of my article series of What I know about (Entertainment articles).

 

Carmen appeared four times already in Playboy magazines in June 1997, December 2000, April 2003 and the anniversary issue, January 2009. As all you may knew already, Carmen have married the basketball star Dennis Rodman who also known as the bad boy of Detroit Pistons and the Chicago Bulls. She have married twice but both of them she called off the marriage and became single. She currently held as a status as a single lady.

 

Single Lady where Beyonce sang the parody song for the single ladies. And yet, Carmen is still remaining hot and single lady as of today. But what I know about her? Because she was the prettiest lady I have ever seen until now.

Marie Digby

Marie Digby

We all know about Marie Digby in her song Say It Again. To tell you the truth honestly, Marie also became one of my favorite artists when she discovered from the Youtube. Well of course, Marie proved herself as the next sensational singer in this generation. Marie Christina Digby was her real name. Her birthday lies today, April 16, 1983. Her birthday lies on the zodiac sign of Taurus and on the Chinese new year of Year of the Pig.

Marie was discovered in Youtube singing of many covers of the artists such as Linkin Park, Rihanna, Britney Spears, Maroon 5, Incubus, Lady Gaga, Usher, Beyonce and Nelly Furtado. But despite her remake of Rihanna’s song Umbrella was the most impressive cut that she sang. It was fabulous. And it’s very quite interesting.

Her debut album Unfold with her first single track Say It Again in her album came explosively in the charts. Everyone was singing about her new song. But not everyone knew that she came from the Youtube sensation. Justin Beiber also came from Youtube but Marie was different from Justin. Marie was a Japanese and was the oldest sibling in their family. Although I don’t know about her, it was quite that I really liked her a lot since she came here in the Philippines a few years ago.

She appeared and held her first concert in the Philippines on August 1, 2009, Saturday. I was amazed that she was here. I didn’t see her much as I wanted to catch a glimpse of her. To tell the truth honestly, Marie became one of the freshest faces that I really liked. She have a wonderful sultry voice and the way she sings is that her voice becomes powerful to me. But Marie returned in the Philippines in 2011. Many of the Filipinos began to fall in love to her which she returned for the second time. She have linked to Sam Milby but to tell you the truth honestly, I didn’t know much of this intrigues.

Marie Digby have four studio albums: Unfold (2008), Second Home (2009), Breathing Underwater (2010) and Your Love (2011). It was only her song Say It Again that I always listened at the back of my head.

Mandy Moore

Mandy Moore

We all know Mandy Moore as the Aerith Gainsborough where she had voice acting in the game of Kingdom Hearts. I have once heard Many Moore during my high school days and college days when she was doing her first studio album So Real in 19999. Her real name was Amanda Leigh Moore, or we called her as Mandy Moore in her screen name. Her birthday lies today, April 10, 1984 and her zodiac sign was the Aries and her Chinese new year was the Year of the Rat.

 

I firstly knew Mandy Moore since my high school days when I’ve heard of Mandy singing Candy. And the song goes like this, “I’m so addicted, to the loving that you’re feeding to me can’t do without it.” Without a doubt, her sweet soulful voice came to my ears. And I was satisfied her beautiful voice. Honestly, I don’t know much of Mandy Moore when I was in high school and college years until she came in each part of her successful years.

 

In her successful touring together with *NSYNC and Backstreet Boys that she joined in their touring acts. Mandy became successful in the same time Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera also became successful in the years of Mandy’s years. Mandy’s first single in her second studio album, I Wanna Be With You hit in the successful Billboard Hot 100. It was released in the middle of July 2000 and it was during one of my college years when I have had entering in second month studying in school. So I was excited going home as I’ve watched her music video. Mandy became my celebrity crush. But it was a small time of short period of time. It wasn’t as much of other girls I really liked about. Her second single Crush from her same titled album became instantly one of my favorite music.

 

Then when she became a hit of her name, she cruised in a successful movie together with Anne Hathaway. Anne and Mandy played different roles. Anne played as geek-to-princess role while Mandy played as an antagonist. Her role in The Princess Diaries was a success. Although she played a few lines, she remained as my favorite antagonist. But she gave the critics in her breakthrough role in the movie of A Walk to Remember she played Jamie Sullivan. She played the ailing lady when she entered the college having with leukemia in her side.

 

Later in her life, Mandy became once again as a voice actor voicing Rapunzel in the animation movie of Tangled. Tangled became a hit. And I’ve loved her in every way. But in the same time, I still remembered that she did voicing Aerith Gainsborough in the video game of Kingdom Hearts that spun in 2002.

 

Her influences in music career came from Alanis Morisette, Janet Jackson, Madonna, Mariah Carey and Shania Twain. It was them I knew but as far as I knew, it was still more than them.

Michael Jackson

Michael Jackson

We all know about Michael Jackson as the most successful pop icon in the world. But despite his death on June 25, 2009, everyone have had inspired on him. So his legacy in music still lives on. Michael Joseph Jackson was his real name. He have born on August 29, 1958 where he born in Gary, Indiana, United States. His everyone called him as MJ.

 

Michael Jackson revolves in my life. During my childhood years, he was the one who introduced how to dance. He inspired me a lot in his dancing skills. So I’ve made an article tribute for him just to write this article. His brothers Jackie, Tito, Jermaine, Marlon and Randy were the originals of The Jackson 5 until they discovered Michael also have talent in singing. So Michael joined the group of The Jackson 5. Michael’s sisters were Rebbie, La Toya and Janet Jackson. Marlon’s twin brother, Brandon, have died shortly after the birth. So the Jacksons have successfully driven the America audience to their successful performance in the early 1960’s.

 

It was when The Monkees was in their era of new music of 1960’s. Janet Jackson, Michael’s youngest sister, was later successfully a singing sensation in her generation that entered in 1980’s. Michael’s top-selling album was Thriller that was entered in 1982, shortly a year after I was already conceived from my mother. His top-selling songs, Don’t Stop ’til You Get Enough and Rock With You was his first songs that entered him as a solo artist. Michael left The Jackson 5 in 1978 when the Motown Records wanted to give his successful career. Despite The Beatles have fallen in late 1960’s, the Jackson 5 took over the music audience.

 

Billie Jean, Beat It and Wanna Be Starting Something were also released together in the album of Thriller that released in 1982. Later, the song, We Are The World was released in 1985 where he co-wrote with Lionel Richie for the Africa and US who have difficulties finding a food.

 

Despite his appearance have changed him, every writers have criticized his behavior. But for me, it doesn’t mean he have changed, his heart have still unchanged for the children around the world. Michael Jackson continued his advocacy to the children who have poor in health. Later in 1988, the Bad album was released in 1988. The songs I Just Can’t Stop Loving You, Bad, The Way You Make Me Feel, Man in the Mirror and Dirty Diana also have made successful one of the top-selling albums in all time.

 

Michael may have been changed in his appearance and his voice was a bit out of range of his voice but he kept his performance top of his level. His one of his signature dance moves was Moonwalk after the movie of Moonraker that was released in one of James Bonds’ films.

 

His next eighth album Dangerous was released in 1991. The first song of the eighth album, Black or White, have successfully reached the number one spot in US Billboards. Remember the Time was also released and was successfully reached the top selling of his albums. Later Michael Jackson have founded Heal The World Foundation that was opened in 1992.

 

After three years, he released his first compilation of his songs in HIStory: Past, Present and Future, Book 1 that was released in 1995. His duet with his sister Janet Jackson in their duet song Scream have debuted in 1993.

 

After numerous charges against him, Michael have felt nothing but to perform in front of his audience. When he returned in the stage in 2009, his supposed last concert was about to released but it was untimely that he shocked the world. He died on June 25, 2009 in Los Angeles, California, US where he left his fans shocking and felt the world would mourn him. I was one of the avid fans of Michael Jackson. If he didn’t die in his age of 50, he would more contributed the world with a peaceful foundation of Heal The World.

 

In my opinion, he would more discovered more talents everywhere in the world with a resourceful of entertainment industry. I would definitely look up to him but Rico Yan was still one of my first inspirations I’ve been look up to. Michael Jackson was one of the millions who discovered the youth where he saw malnutrition children in Africa and US. Many have believed it was one of the findings that he drank the anti-stress drugs that prescribed by his personal physician Conrad Murray.

Kathryn Bernardo

Kathryn Bernardo

We all know about Kathryn Bernardo as Patchot in her latest movie of Must Be…Love. Well at first when I saw her a glimpse in acting, she was very good in her last television series of Princess and I. With Daniel Padilla as her leading man in Must Be…Love, both of them were amazingly the best partners of this generation.

 

Kathryn Chandria Manuel Bernardo was her real name. Or we also know her as Kathryn Bernardo. Her birthday lies today, March 26, 1996. She is born in Cabanutuan City. Her zodiac sign was Aries and her Chinese new year was Year of the Rat. Kathryn was still studying in OB Montessori where the other actresses Aiza Seguerra and Antoinette Taus came from to study in one school in San Juan. Although Kathryn was the newest addition of this generation, I’ve must said that she was really amazing as a student and an actress. But Antoinette became my first celebrity crush. But Kathryn for me, she is beautiful but I’m not falling for her. Antoinette was really special celebrity for me because we both came from Montessori. She came from OB Montessori and I came from Montessori Integrated School of Antipolo.

 

Most of her accomplishments went to her as the best teen actress in the television series of Princess and I. Then later from her latest movie appearance in Must Be…Love together with her leading man Daniel Padilla was also a successful hit in the theaters.

 

Remember the classic drama series of Mara Clara when Judy Ann Santos played as Mara and Gladys Reyes played as Clara. Kathryn and her friend Julia Montes were both real friends in real life. But in the series of Mara Clara 2010, they were playing as the opposite characters. Kathryn played as Mara while her friend Julia played as Clara. Kathryn proved the audience that she was a good actress of this generation. Everyone was telling Kathryn have been comparing to Claudine Barretto. But Kathryn wasn’t Claudine Barretto. Claudine worked her acting skills on her own. But Kathryn Bernardo was Kathryn Bernardo. Claudine was going to turn 34 years old this year. But Kathryn is turning 17 today.

 

Kathryn have made 10 movie appearances and 24 television appearances. Julia and Kathryn came from the television series of Goin’ Bulilit. The both graduated and turned maturely in their roles. But Julia was one year and one week old than Kathryn was. Julia have been celebrated debut party of her 18th birthday in Fernwood Gardens where my relatives owned the venue that her family have been celebrated in 18th birthday. But in the same way, Kathryn proved the critics and the writers of her acting skills have been leveled up already.

 

In her last television appearance of Princess and I and her movie appearance of Must Be…Love have gained a wide young audience who really loved Kathryn and Daniel so much. So the KathNiel is born because of their love partners on-screen. I wasn’t sure about if they were going really dating each other. Both Daniel and Kathryn were still young. No matter what they proved for the young audience, the young audience would probably bought the tickets to watch their movie in theaters.

 

Other Kathryn’s television performances was Super Inggo (2006-2007), Pangarap na Bituin (2007), Prinsesa ng Banyera (2007-2008), Super Inggo at ang Super Tropa (2009-2010), Magkaribal (2010) and Endless Love (2010) before the revival Mara Clara was also released in October 2010.

 

Kathryn also appeared in the past movie appearances such as Gagamboy (2004) as Tsoknat, Nassan Ka Man (2005), Supahpapalicious (2008) as Young Athena, Way Back Home (2011) as Joana / Ana, Shake, Rattle & Roll 13 (2011), 24/7 in Love (2012) as Jane Dela Cuesta and Sisterakas (2012) as Kathy before the Must Be…Love was released two weeks ago.

We all know about Beyonce Knowles from the singing sensational group, Destiny’s Child, in 1990’s. And so to speak, Beyonce and the rest of Destiny’s Child have decided their reign in 2006. One of the successful solo artist was none other than, Beyonce Knowles. Beyonce Giselle Knowles-Carter was her real name. She is born on September 4, 1981 and raised and born in Houston, Texas. But we called her as Beyonce Knowles. She and I have the same birth years. We came from the Year of the Rooster but her zodiac sign was Virgo.

 

Her childhood friend was Kelly Rowland and have met LaTavia Robinson along their road to success. But their name wasn’t Destiny’s Child yet. They became first as Girl’s Tyme. They included Tamar Davis, Nikki  Taylor and Nina Taylor in their girl’s group Girl’s Tyme. They were relatively untimely attracting nationwide. But despite of other members, the Taylor sisters decided not to join anymore plus Tamar Davis. Untimely in their success, LeToya Luckett eventually joined the group. Upon the time they were joined in Elektra Records. Their group name have changed into Girl’s Destiny. It became weird and thus it changed into Destiny’s Child which it launched in 1996. Their first album with the self-titled first studio album became a success in 1998. Their first album included the successful hits, “No, No, No,” “Bills, Bills, Bills” and “Say My Name.” Their latest single “Say My Name” rose to their success in 2000. Robinson and Luckett also have decided to quit the girls’ group in 2000. But the girls’ group remained successful and have added Michelle Williams and Farrah Franklin.

 

Michelle Williams came from as a back-up singer of Monica. Later on, Farrah Franklin also decided to quit when Luckett and Robinson filed a lawsuit. Their fourth single “Jumpin’, Jumpin’ ” from the second studio album “The Writing’s on the Wall” became a hit. Later on, their successful top single “Independent Women Part One” became a successful hit when it included from the film soundtrack of Charlie’s Angels. Destiny’s Child third studio album “Survivor” came out in 2001. Also their successful cut tracks, “Survivor” and “Bootylicious” have became worldwide successful hit.

 

Beyonce Knowles‘ solo first studio album “Dangerously in Love” debut in 2003. Her successful cut tracks “Crazy in Love” and “Baby Boy” have became an instant hit in radio airwaves nationwide and worldwide. But the Destiny’s Child fourth and final studio album “Destiny Fulfilled” would have be a last goodbye album for the audience.

 

As I was researching about Beyonce Knowles, she and her girls’ group could have been a long-term in entertainment industry. But it was so sad when I read they were disbanded in 2006. They were compared to The Supremes where the front woman Diana Ross was the lead vocalist of The Supremes. It didn’t matter to me. But honestly, she was the best vocalist of the 1990’s and 2000’s generation. If there were not compared to other groups in the past. The would probably sing up to the youth today. Their inspirational icon was Janet Jackson who have had fame in the early 1980’s.

 

Beyonce, Kelly and Michelle have might pave way to their music stardom that might continue up to this generation. Despite with their disbandment in 2006, I’ve said Beyonce was the successfully having to become a perfect opportunity as a solo artist. She was one of my favorite solo artists in early 2000’s. Like I was singing their song, “Survivor” during my culinary days in college. Maybe it wasn’t a good idea to bring her back. But it was good to hear some of her beautiful hit singles, “Deja Vu” in 2006, “Beautiful Liar” with Shakira in 2007, “Halo,” “If I Were a Boy” and “Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)” in 2008, “Telephone” with Lady Gaga in 2009 and “Run the World (Girls)” in 2011.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry

We all know about Katy Perry as a singer. But do you really know about her? Well in this article, you will find out why I am writing about her. Katheryn Elizabeth Hudson was her real name. For somehow, if you notice the surname of Hudson, she has same name with Katy Hudson in the entertainment industry. So someone picked the name of Perry. Thus, she became a beautiful Katy Perry. Her birthday falls in October 25, 1984.  Her zodiac sign is Scorpio and her Chinese new year is Year of the Rat.

 

To tell you the truth honestly, I really have a huge crush on her ever since she was starting as she became  a breakthrough artist in 2007. With her pop-catchy song, “I Kissed A Girl” gave her way to become a successful move. Although she have had been using her name as Katy Hudson before. She really started in 1999 way before as a singer. As all of you didn’t know about her, Katy revolved my life. She really electrified my story also. But in the same way her song was one of my favorite songs. Then her next song “Hot n Cold” also became a hit in the Philippines shore. Her powerful pop and beautiful voice have really electrified her audience and including the Philippines.

 

Katy Perry was one that I become attached to sing her songs. Aside from her songs, “I Kissed a Girl” and “Hot n Cold” that became hit, her next song was “California Girls” also became a hit. The radio airwaves and the television were also becoming like a fever because of her. Of course, everyone loves her.

 

She have had 11 television guest appearances already such as American Idol, The X-Factor, Sesame Street, The Simpsons and Saturday Night Live. She also gave a voice actress in one of my favorite cartoons before. It was The Smurfs when it was released in 2011. Somehow I was really amazed because of her. Being as a prettiest faces in America, she really gave notice for young audience where all young girls and female teenagers wanted to follow her. Although it’s a bit of a chance. So I’ve decide to put her what I really know about her.

 

Besides of her hits “I Kissed a Girl,” “Hot n Cold” and “California Girls” were “Teenage Dream,” “Firework,” “E.T.,” “The One That Got Away,” “Part of Me” and “Wide Awake.” Her nine top-hit songs made her as a third highest recording artist. She also have had three studio albums: “Katy Hudson,” “One of the Boys” and “Teenage Dream.” I wish she could collaborate with the Back Street Boys because the BSB is one of among the highest record sales in all-time in America and other countries as well. Well of course, there’s Justin Beiber. Justin have made his way but he still have to learn of his lessons despite of his success around the world.

 

Katy have made some of her accomplishments as an recording artists. Somehow I really want her to become one of my characters in my story. But I haven’t pick a perfect character for her. Hmm…if I am too curious about my projects, I would probably put myself in jeopardy. I have to try somehow I want it to. Katy Perry also have had an opening act in No Doubt‘s concert in 2009.

 

One of the trivia I’ve found about her was that she had been following Madonna as her inspirational icon in her career. Madonna also evolved throughout the times from her songs although Katy Perry also followed her.

Why the Korean Pop comes alive

Cassette tapes

Cassette tapes

Backstreet Boys

Backstreet Boys

The boy band and the girl band back in early 1990’s and early 2000’s comes alive. Those times were the time of American boy bands and girl bands. One of my favorite boy bands during my time was Backstreet Boys, Boys II Men, and some other to mention. Well occasionally, I have some their studio albums. And during that time, you have to buy the cassette tapes, neither the VCD nor the DVD exists that time.

 

People nowadays listen to the Korean Pop, but the American dream and European dream hopes to bring back the boy band and girl band to come back alive. One of them was One Direction. One Direction consists five men in the group. They were Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. All of them were graduated in X-Factor singing contest in the television hit series.

 

In fact, the boy bands and the girl bands are keeping down in the ground before. During the early 1940’s and 1950’s were the classy ones. From the barbershop music to this generation’s music has evolve already. I give you some examples. Do you remember The Osmonds, The Jackson 5, The Beatles, and The Monkees? Who have the music background before? Them. Michael Jackson kicked a lot from his sensational signatures during he was still alive. Beside from his sensational signature Moon Walk, anybody could make a new move. Dancing sensation comes from him and also Bobby Brown and Elvis Presley made their own dancing moves.

 

Where are the boy bands come from? Boy bands come from naturally in 1940’s, 1950’s and 1960’s. And the first ones was that I have mentioned above in 1960’s. Well of course, not everyone knows exactly what and where does that it come from. Even if you have a talent, many have shapes in life.

 

In 1970’s and 1980’s, sensational boy bands came alive again. This time, Menudo, New Edition and New Kids on the Block came alive with their own moves and own hit songs. New Edition consisted of six men. They were Ronnie DeVoe, Bobby Brown, Ricky Bell, Michael Bivins, Ralph Tresvant and Johnny Gill. Bobby Brown was one of the famous who have made his own moves that sparked in entertainment industry with the dancing sensation.

 

New Kids on the Block launched their stardom during their height in their success in 1984 to 1994. With the members of New Kids on the Block, they were Donnie Wahlberg, Danny Wood, Jordan Knight, Jonathan Knight and Joey McIntyre. And the past members of New Kids on the Block were Mark Wahlberg and Jamie Kelly. Jordan Knight, Joey McIntyre and Mark Wahlberg still continued their legacy until early 2000’s. But Mark Wahlberg, now an actor, is still working on his part in the entertainment industry. While Jordan Knight and Joey McIntyre were kept their feet in the entertainment industry until early 2000’s.

 

But the word of “boy bands” was not introduced in the past. It didn’t imprint at the back of our head. So I think this is the perfect article that can combine with the title of Why the Korean Pop comes alive. Boy bands have been introduced in 1990’s. If you were 1990’s baby or 1980’s baby, you would probably loved to hear some of the songs of Boys 2 Men, Take That, All-4-One, Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC, Boyzone, 98 Degrees, The Moffatts, Hanson and Westlife.

 

Boys II Men consisted of five men before, now three men, and were born in 1988. They were Nathan Morris, Shawn Stockman and Wanya Morris. With the past members were Michael McCary and Marc Nelson. Take That consisted of five men and were born in 1990 up to 1996. But they came back in 2005 up to the present. They were Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Jason Orange, Mark Owen and sensational Robbie Williams. Take That and Boys II Men are still alive up to the present. All-4-One consisted of four men and were born in 1993. They were Jamie Jones, Delious Kennedy, Alfred Nevarez and Tony Borowiak. Backstreet Boys consisted five men and were born in 1993. They were AJ MCLean, Howie Dorough, Nick Carter, Kevin Richardson and Brian Litrell. *NYSNC consisted of five men and were born in 1995 and lasted until 2002. They were Chris Kirkpatrick, Joey Fatone, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez and Lance Bass. The group dismantled in 2002 after Justin Timberlake came apart in his own studio album, while the others stayed in the entertainment industry.

 

Boyzone consisted of five men, now only four men and were born in 1993 up to 2000. And they were initially coming back in 2007. They were Keith Duffy, Mikey Graham, Ronan Keating, Shane Lynch and their past member Stephen Gately. 98 Degrees consisted of four men and were born in 1996 up to 2005. And they also came back in 2012. They were Nick Lachey, Justin Jeffre, Jeff Timmons and Drew Lachey. Nick Lachey have been linked to Jessica Simpson then later separated. The Moffatts consisted of four young siblings and were born in 1990 until 2001. Then later it came back, and stopped again the same year of 2012. They were Scott Moffatt, Clint Moffatt, Bob Moffatt and Dave Moffatt. Hanson consisted of three Hanson siblings and were born in 1992 up to the present times. They were Isaac Hanson, Taylor Hanson and Zac Hanson. And Westlife consisted of five men and were born in 1998. Then they stopped in the year of 2012. They were Nicky Byrne, Kian Egan, Mark Feehily, Shane Filan and Brian McFadden.

 

Ten boy bands that I’ve been mentioned were in my time. They were the successful boy bands. Although some all female-group also came alive. Spice Girls and Destiny’s Child were also born in 1990’s. Spice Girls consisted of five girls and were born in 1994 and stopped in 2000. Then they came back in 2007 and stopped again in 2008. But they reappeared again and stopped in the same of year 2012. They were Geri Halliwell, Melanie Chrisholm, Emma Bunton, Melanie Brown and Victoria Beckham. But the Destiny’s Child was the first introduced in 1990’s and formally have had six past members. They were born in 1990 and stopped in 2006. They were Beyonce Knowles, Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. The six past members were LaTavia Robinson, LeToya Luckett, Farrah Franklin, Tamar Davis, Nikki Taylor and Nina Taylor.

 

Year of new generation that entered in 2000, Backstreet Boys, *NSYNC and Westlife dominated the early 2000’s. Then it came Jonas Brothers, A1 and Blue. Blue began in 2000 and stopped in 2005. Then they came back in 2009. They were Antony Costa, Duncan James, Lee Ryan and Simon Webbe. A1 began in 1998 and stopped in 2002. Then they once returned again in 2009. They were Mark Read, Ben Adams and Christian Ingebrigsten and their former member Paul Marazzi. Jonas Brothers consisted of three young siblings that started in 2005 and ended in 2011. They were Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas. Then they came back together again in 2012. They were also associated with Demi Lovato. Simple Plan is now considered the new boy band that they started in 1999 until to the present times. They were Pierre Bouvier, Sebastian Lefebvre, David Desrosiers, Chuck Comeau and Jeff Stinco.

 

Along the road in the entertainment world, the Taiwanese boy band F4 became a top selling artists in 2000’s from the successful hit TV series, Meteor Garden that sparked around the world. Here comes the new generation, One Direction, The Wanted and Big Time Rush brought boy bands alive again and kicked the entire world. One Direction came from the reality singing TV contest, the X-Factor. They started in 2010 and still dominated in the entertainment world. The Wanted also brought boy band world in the entertainment world. The Wanted consisted five men and started in 2009. They were Max George, Siva Kaneswaran, Jay McGuiness, Tom Parker and Nathan Sykes. And Big Time Rush also came in the entertainment world as the new 2010’s boy bands had been introduced. They started in 2009 and they were Kendall Schmidt, James Maslow, Carlos Pena Jr. and Logan Henderson.

 

Normally we understand the feeling of boy bands fever in this generation. Where did it start? It came from The Monkees, one of the first boy band in the entertainment history. And it came a big fever for the younger audience today. A lot of girls screaming their names, and a new breed of artists came and brought the boy band fever. The reason, why the Korean Pop comes alive? It have been a fever. A lot of new artists of this generation. And I think only two all-female groups I’ve really like from Korean Pop. And that was 2NE1 and Girls Generation. And the rest of the Korean Pop invasion in the entertainment world came kicking the Philippine shore since 2003. And there was a radio inside your room and banging your room so loudly with Korean pop songs. I didn’t mean that I don’t like them. It’s just that I’m a not-so-good writer, but loves writing what I have knowledge in the entertainment world.

 

One of the successful boy bands New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys combined their success and launched in 2012 where they held NKOTBSB concerts around the world including the Philippines. Backstreet Boys held the number one boy band group in the entertainment world with $130 million dollars and they were in 20 years already in the entertainment world. Kevin Richardson came back strong with them. And so the Korean pop sensational groups came in the radar such as Super Junior, Big Bang, TVXQ, U-KISS, 2PM, Arashi and SM*SH. It was originally that Korean Pop groups started in late 2000’s when the F4 group introduced the entertainment world with Asian sensational groups.

 

2NE1 consisted with four females and started in 2009. They were CL, Bom, Dara and Minzy. Dara was formerly working in the Philippines and have joined 2NE1 for their successful all female group. And Girls’ Generation started and paved way in the Philippines air waves when they started in 2007. They were Taeyeon, Jessica, Sunny, Tiffany, Hyoyeon, Yuri, Sooyoung, Yoona and Seohyun.

 

After all, Korean Pop comes alive kicking and popping out in your heads. While the American all-male group and all-female groups have been materializing the entertainment world again. Why others have failed in their stardom? Only The Moffatts split up because of the word of “boy band“. While other all-male groups, Backstreet Boys, Jackson 5, Hanson, New Kids on the Block, Boyzone and Take That lasted their groups in years.

 

So are you in? Or out?

What I know about Julia Montes

Julia Montes

Julia Montes

We all know Julia Montes as Katarina in Walang Hanggan (Infinity) series. But her real name is Mara Hautea Schnittka. Or we can call her as Julia Montes in her screen name. Her birthday lies today, March 19, 1995. She will be turning 18 years old today. As we all know, Julia have made various roles in her life.

 

Julia have made 22 television appearances and 8 movie appearances. Her breakthrough role was when she played as Clara in Mara Clara 2010, the revival-hit from where Judy Ann Santos and Gladys Reyes played as Mara and Clara respectively. The original Mara Clara run from August 17, 1992 to February 14, 1997 with 1,209 episodes. It ended in five years hiatus and a top-hit makers in the entertainment industry. The revival Mara Clara 2010 run from October 25, 2010 to June 3, 2011 with 158 episodes. The young audience have made Julia Montes and Kathryn Bernardo in their stardom. In their part ways, Kathryn have made successful series in Princess and I while Julia also have made successful series in Walang Hanggan (Infinity).

 

She was also part of Goin’ Bulilit and graduated from the cast when she turned teenager. One of the memorable shows I watched playing as Daniella Valencia, younger version of Ruffa Gutierrez in I Love Betty La Fea. She also played as Mara in Gimik 2010, a revival hit during Rico Yan‘s days in Gimik in 1996-1999.

 

After Mara Clara 2010 hit in 2010-2011, she made a remarkable role as Katarina, a leading lady in the series of Walang Hanggan (Infinity). With Coco Martin as her leading man, her role was an inevitable character. Maybe I was too curious about her role. But I didn’t mention anything. So I asked, “why I picked her?”

 

It is because she mainly matures in her role in any television series or in movie appearances. Julia also have made as a daughter of Maricel Soriano’s Bahay Kubo in Metro Manila Film Fest in 2007. She played as young Lily. If you are a movie lover, you will remember her. And mostly one of the successful movies she made today was A Moment In Time. Her onscreen partner was Coco Martin.

 

This article also marked as the special edition of first studio anniversary here in my studio articles. Julia Montes is one of my favorite stars today although I haven’t see her in real life. But she wasn’t that taller. Because no matter what the measurement was in the newspaper, or any in social media, you just have to meet her. In my experiences, I saw John Lloyd Cruz, Sarah Geronimo, Mark Bautista, Nikki Valdez, Giselle Toengi and Rico Yan in real life. Oh and by the way, Mark Bautista is my distant relative. No one knows him yet because he transfers to GMA-7 network.

Jodi Santa Maria

Jodi Santa Maria

We all know Jodi Santa Maria as Maya in Be Careful With My Heart that top bills every morning in ABS-CBN. Jodi  Chrissie Garcia Santa Maria is the prettiest faces in the entire network of Star Magic alumna. Well of course, I really admire her because of her prettiest face. With known as versatile actress, Jodi remains in the network of ABS-CBN. Or simply we called her as Jodi Santa Maria.

 

Jodi’s first appearance was Gimik where the inspirational icon Rico Yan worked with her during his years. Jodi is born on June 16, 1982. She is in Year of the Dog in Chinese new year and in zodiac sign of Gemini. Jodi made 39 television appearances in the network while she achieved 18 movie appearances.

 

With Rico Yan in her first year of appearances, Star Magic circle batch was released that included her and Rico Yan. Both of them were the first among that appeared in ABS-CBN. One of my favorite television series I watched was Gimik (1999), Pangako Sa Iyo (2000), Kung Fu Kids (2008), Tayong Dalawa (2009), Noah (2010-2011), 100 Days to Heaven (2011) and the most successful series, Be Careful With My Heart (2012-2013).

 

Jodi have worked already with Rico Yan, Dominic Ochoa, Marvin Agustin, Jericho Rosales, Kristine Hermosa, Kim Chiu, Gerald Anderson, Piolo Pascual and among others. She may be the prettiest faces in the network that pair with Richard Yap. And she is the most admired person of this generation.

 

Despite she has a child already, she remain one of my favorite faces in ABS-CBN. Well of course, Be Careful With My Heart co-actors admit that Richard Yap and her have link in romantic scenes in the said of series-hit. Loving her is the most important. No matter what other people have said to me, she is unbeatable. But I am willing to describe her one word and that is, “breakthrough.” She is the most breakthrough artist this year and yet she records the platinum of the album of Be Careful With My Heart series.

 

Being having work together with Rico Yan, Jodi is in my top list that I consider to work with her. And I haven’t get a chance to meet her yet. But I’ve met Giselle Toengi and Nikki Valdez already during Rico Yan’s years. But to tell you honestly, it is hard to say of this but sometimes I dream of her. It’s an admiration that I’ve really admire of her. Her acting skills is already in next level. Perhaps I would like more to see her in the future. Together with Rico Yan, Giselle Toengi and Nikki Valdez I’ve met already in person, they were all good-looking and down-to-earth. If only Rico Yan is still alive, he would probably replace Richard Yap in his role of Sir Chief in Be Careful With My Heart. Richard and Rico have both chinese lineage, thus the same of their good background.

 

If you can tell me what story I would to give her as a role, I would probably putting her as one of my main cast of my own story of The Legendary of Fireice. Nobody would claim that title and of course, nobody knows my story. That is why I am still eyeing to be the actor, writer and production staff in the entertainment industry. Like Rico Yan, I also have business that I’m doing for almost 6 years and 9 months already. And I have a lots of story catching in the production world.

 

Making a television series-hit could be hard to make, but if you love the entertainment industry so much. You would probably love making movies, television series, recording songs, production studio or even higher achievement, the first production theme park in the Philippines just like in United States. Investors would probably invest their money to provide more jobs for all Filipinos and create a largest tourism that can catch up in Asian countries like Malaysia and Singapore.

We all know about Rico Yan. His birthday lies tomorrow, March 14, 1975, 28 days after Valentine’s Day. His full name is Ricardo Carlos Castro Yan. Or simply we know him as Rico Yan.

 

Rico was dearly inspiration for me. I know him a lot. But not all of them, few of them I guess. It was 11 years already since he passed away in March 29, 2002, Good Friday. His closest friends, Dominic Ochoa and Marvin Agustin were been together with him since his last days. One day another comes closer. Once I think this way, nobody could replace the same Rico back to the entertainment industry.

 

When I became clueless, I was still shocked. 15 days apart after his birthday, Rico have dearly become our inspiration icon. He deserved to be the best man in our hearts. It was 2001, a year before he passed away. I was still in culinary years. His first cousin, Diego Castro, was my batch mate in culinary years together with Danica Sotto, daughter of Vic Sotto and Dina Bonnevie. Then at the back of my head, my cousin’s classmate was Rico’s cousin who was studying in Miriam College before. Of all of the same connections I have with Rico is interchanging. It was Jao Mapa who became my cousin’s relationship. I saw Jao Mapa every time he went to our grandparents’ house.

 

I was still shocked during that time. I am not aware what I am becoming to my situation. Being standing out or out of place makes me thinking what I should think about. Who is Jao Mapa? Oh, yes. Jao Mapa was one of the Ang TV days during his big break in ABS-CBN. He was also brother to Diego Mapa, the vocalist in Pedicab. Besides Jao Mapa, I also become aware of my surroundings. Danny Javier, Dyords Javier and among of the politicians I know was Jinggoy Estrada. I was still shocked when I visited grandmother’s funeral who Danny Javier’s mother died before. All of them were in entertainment industry and government industry when I saw them. Then later in my life, Rico entered in my life.

 

It was a perfect opportunity in my life. It was when he was still in ‘Sang Linggo Na Po Sila noontime series where my uncle was there. I’ve even asked my father if I have connections with my uncle. Yes, there were first cousins. But to tell you the truth, honestly I became aware of entertainment industry. One event to another, I’ve always want to become an actor someday. Who will be thinking wanting to be an artist if you are still dreaming? Well at first, I was afraid and demented. Knowing myself have become clearly. Rico was one of the first inspiration in my life. It was when he appeared in Master commercial. Then one commercial to another, I grew becoming to be the best what I have.

 

When Rico died, I was denying that he wasn’t dead. But it confirmed in newspapers and television when he actually died in Los Palmas in Palawan. I was curious that time. I thought it was my end of my world. But after 11 years have been pass, he grew in my heart stronger and kept me stronger enough not to think of him anymore. Because I want to be who I will become just like him.

Dakota Fanning as Jane Volturi


Dakota Fanning
have made 32 movies already including her as the child actress in the movie of I Am Sam with Sean Penn. Yes, that movie have made a lot impression for me. Sam and I have the same cases but he has a child in the story but I don’t. Remember when she walked away every time she wanted her father to have beside with her. It was like being attached to your child. She is born on February 23, 1994. But my birthday was 4 days before her birthday was. But she is born on the Year of the Dog. But I am born in the Year of the Rooster.

 

In her memorable movies was I Am Sam, Twilight: New Moon, Twilight: Eclipse, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 and Coraline out of her best 32 movies since 2001 until 2012. I am not fan of Edward Cullens and Bella Swan. But I was eager to see her as the protagonist in the Twilight series. Being as Jane Volturi, her character became dark for me. But I love her being as a different character.

 

Coraline was an animated movie. She played as the voice actress of the same-name movie, Coraline Jones. I thought at the start was very scary but it wasn’t. So I was a bit of liking her character there. Who wouldn’t think about the Charlotte’s Web? She was also there in the movie of Charlotte’s Web playing as Fern Arable. But the favorite children’s animation series before was Lilo and Stitch 2: Stitch has a Glitch. She played as Lilo in the movie. Isn’t that great? She played well in various movies.

 

I love her nature, in fact Dakota Fanning was also in my part of my story. Although I won’t able telling you what her name there. I just wanted to have inspiration from her. Because being her is a good idea to have maintaining figure and the character. She may be not any child actresses before, but with Robert Pattinson and Kirsten Stewart was also became child actor and child actress before they were all becoming famous. Maybe in their lives, she will also becoming one of the favorable bank actress in the future, maybe in the Oscars Awards.

 

Dakota has a sister, Elle Fanning (four years younger than her), who has been part of the movie also of I Am Sam as the younger Lucy. Well luckily I found some interesting to write about them. Elle was also in the entertainment industry as same with her sister Dakota. But Elle was also a model.

 

What I love Dakota Fanning? Because she has green eyes, and I couldn’t resist of the color eyes. If I were an American, I would have the same eyes of her. Or maybe I will have red eye on my left and yellow on my right. Maybe I couldn’t resist about eyes of different nations.

I firstly saw Alodia Gosiengfiao in the internet and in the cosplay before. It was during when I entered and joined deviantart.com  seven years from now.The first time I saw her, she was this so beautiful and I can’t imagined my eyes following her in my page. Although we haven’t see each other, I also know about her. Let me give a recap about Alodia Gosiengfiao.

 

Alodia Almira Arraiza Gosiengfiao in real life made debut her in 15 years of age when I started to know she was cosplaying that time. And I believed during that time, I’ve been finished and graduated in my culinary years in 2003. Her birthday lies on March 9, 1988. She was dedicating this far as I knew this far.

 

At her age of 15, she continued as a star cosplayer and played as one of the inspiration in cosplay society. Little did I know was her unique in cosplay. She also loves to draw as I do. She loves to play video games as I am also doing. But I stopped four years ago playing games. Sometimes I get bored easily in the game. Games are always getting that boring although you will stick on the same game platform. I saw her during the Khan Online launching party, that was when I finally did applying for a game account. And I chose the character player of Micko. But she played as Necromancer in Khan Online launching party. During that time, my character ranked below one of the rank 1000 in Level 100. Then I started to continue playing my character until I have reached rank 700+ in intelligence which you will require a lot of mana points. One of the guild I’ve joined was Renaissance. And Helgra was one of the leader of the guild teams. I’ve joined two of the eyeball tournaments before. And I was pretty heavily addicted that time.

 

Well considering that I played hardcore online games before, I was too becoming one of browser game addict in facebooks. Most of them are not here anymore. Because I don’t want to keep that too long. Some of this generation has too many attention of application games. Back to the subject I was saying of Alodia Gosiengfiao.

 

Alodia was also model, artist, actress and recording artist. I also watched her show before in ABS-CBN’s Laugh Out Loud. But before that, I also watched Animax where I watched a thousand episodes of animation series in Animax. It was really addictive although today was becoming too little of heavy of knowledge. Alodia has two lineages in her life as Spanish and Chinese. Her mother was Spanish and her father was Chinese. But standing in our nation, she is a Filipina. She was the one of the finest cosplayer today. And I always followed her because she was beautiful in cosplay costumes she was wearing.

Coco Martin

Coco Martin

Coco Martin is Rodel Nacianceno in real life. But being as Coco Martin as a screen name, I love him watching in movies and television series. Despite he was a waiter back in Canada, he went in different obstacles. Coco and I are in the same age. But he was conceived from his mother on November 1, 1981.

I saw various of his television series before. He played as Ramon Lecumberri in Tayong Dalawa (The Two of Us) where Kim Chiu and Gerald Anderson played the leading roles in the series. In the start of the series, I saw his action, his charm and his inspiration to among of the actors today. Well, I notice the way he acts, he is very natural in his way.

Tayong Dalawa

Tayong Dalawa

Coco played in various indie films. But I really love his work. Last week, I was tuned where he was playing as Juan Dela Cruz (John of the Cross) in television series. He has charisma so much. He could attract many television viewers and movie viewers. And right now, I will be able watching his movie this Valentines weekend. In his second mainstream movie A Moment In Time is one of best movies for now.

A Moment In Time

A Moment In Time

In his career, he have made 18 television cameo appearances and 24 movies. But he made the television viewers as an outstanding actor in Tayong Dalawa, Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo (If We Were to be Apart), Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin (I Will Only Love You Once or One Great Love), Walang Hanggan (Eternal) and the newest super-hero television series Juan Dela Cruz. In his credentials to indie films, he had done 21 indie films. From his famous indie films like Foster Child, Daybreak, Kinatay, Noy and Sta. Nina were his best indie films. In his first mainstream movie Born To Love You as Rex Manrique he had played, his opposite leading actress was Angeline Quinto. And Angeline Quinto have had her first television series, Kahit Konting Pagtingin (Just One Glance).

Juan Dela Cruz

Juan Dela Cruz

Coco played as the blind man who ended up Angeline courting him to the end. Because of what the car window shatters in his eyes, that was what he made as a blind man photographer. He ended up as a miserable character around the story. But in the good ending, it turned up studying in one of the disability school and married Angeline.

MinsanLangPoster

Coco Martin become one of my another inspirations I will looking up to as an actor. Being despite his acting schedule, I also want to work with him also an actor I suppose. But to tell the truth, what else I have bring up some a good story he would play in my story? Would he love my story script? I don’t know. But I love his acting. And I supposed the good story of Walang Hanggan was a hit for me. Two thumbs and a good story to watch!

He also grabbed winning 21 awards in his fame as a good actor from he was active in 2006 up to now. I also want him to portray in my biography film if he would act for me. He really inspires me a lot the way he acts.

Celebrity crushes

Somehow I get a little information about the girl I really fall in love. Maybe one or two I might get a guess. But to tell you the truth honestly, I have a celebrity crushes before. My first celebrity crush way back when I was in elementary days was none other than, Antoinette Taus. Of course, it is good that you really look for the girl you really want to see her personally. But it takes guts and somehow I lose the way to get a chance to have conversation with Antoinette Taus. Both of us were Montessorians. But Antoinette back before was attending OB Montessori in San Juan. And I was attending Montessori Integrated School of Antipolo or simply called as MISA. It was that name before, but it stood out the name without the Antipolo word. Now it is called as Montessori Integrated School or in short as MIS. Looks like I am having a hard time looking for my background. But then again, this was called about me and my celebrity crushes.

 

Yes, I did have two dozen crushes before from elementary until college with a numerous crushes I have had hidden in my privacy life. Well I don’t want to spill the names. Someone will get hurt, someone will get personally to mention the crushes I have. Personally in my life got nothing to be achieved. Somehow I always got hurt when somebody knew about this. Yes, I got hurt someone’s else also. But honestly, they were happily for now.

 

After I have graduated from the school I’ve been attended in MISA, children of Francis Magalona was enrolled in the same school I was attending to. Name four of his children today were famous today. They were Maxene Magalona, Saab Magalona, Frank Magalona and Elmo Magalona. Both boys were good in singing like their father was. And Saab did have the same birthday with Maxene. And I was mentioning them in my school before I was attending. Honestly, I really didn’t know Maxene’s siblings before until today I knew already.

 

Back to the topic I was mentioning Antoinette, I firstly saw her before during my college. Both of us were graduating the same year of 2000. And I didn’t know that she was attending Ateneo de Manila University in Katipunan area. Barely I knew about her, to tell you the truth, it was the same fate I saw her. It was all because it happened so fast. I was having a lunch in Pad Thai restaurant behind the Shakey’s restaurant in Katipunan area. Little I knew, I saw her across about two tables away. She was so beautiful personally, but I didn’t get a chance to ask her politely or asked for her autograph. During before, the cellphone wasn’t introduced in the society. Only some in the society have had less in the population having a cellphone during the year I was attending college. So I decided to keep it myself. Maybe a little less knew in my life that I saw an actress before. Then it was a reality when you were out of high school years.

 

I’ve had been in Antipolo for 11 years of studying from elementary and high school. Although it wasn’t hard or easy for me, it was easily that I have coped with my problems. I didn’t know much of reality before. Because I have had in my mind I was in 6th grade graduating for 3rd commencement exercises in 1994. Well a few notices changed so fast, I got a little incident about this. I was bumped by this jeepney breaking a little in my shoulder joint. Then after that, I wasn’t able to move or enrolled to another school. None of the public schools before have had 7th grade. I was the last and only 7th grader in elementary. All of my classmates were all 6th graders. I was a little bit surprised that I have had advantages from them. Knowing that I repeatedly studying the same subjects I have had it before. So much to say and so much to express were all the advantages before. The disadvantages in reality, all public schools here in the Philippines surprisingly don’t have 7th grade.

 

What are the disadvantages? It’s literally simple and precisely argument among the families here in the Philippines. Not all families can’t afford to have children studying in 7th grade, so instead jumping to high school. Just like an intelligent student was accelerated. Even so, they don’t have disadvantages.

 

And the advantages, what are the qualities students looking for the school? It’s more of education in the country. Now the government were acting to have the K-12 education. Not all schools can adapt that. For me, it was more than you were keeping ready to study before entering the high school. That’s the advantage for me, and I can’t argue for other student body that is. Because normally, I have curious study of being having with Down syndrome. And I’ve accepted the truth. Accepting for itself welcomes the society makes so easy staying in positivity.

 

I was saying a little more of an introduction about Antoinette Taus. She was in the year I was in. 1981. She was a Virgo and I was between in Aquarius and Pisces. It was a little less or more having you to introduce her. And yes, the last time I saw her around was in The Voice singing talent-show.

 

Moving fast-forward in the a little early of 2000’s, I have had a little crushes back when I was in college. They were Danica Sotto and Nina Girado, the soul siren. Danica and I went to same school attending to the culinary school in Katipunan, it was Center for Culinary Arts, or in short CCA. But it was short back then when we were together. I got ahead graduating in culinary school and Danica graduated. So much to say or something I really didn’t remember anything. And Nina Girado, she was in Katipunan area before. She was attending in Miriam College she was studying. I saw her too back then. But the society in Katipunan area leveled me up. What I mean was a little introduction in a reality. And I was curious what I was thinking at the back of my head.

 

After a year I graduated from the culinary school, I felt depleted or nothing to feels empty to be inspired of. I have had no current celebrity crush in the years I was not in the mood. It was depressing years. From 2004 to 2009, I was a little in stage of frustration, depression and a mixed of little emotions I have had. Maybe a little social anxiety have stopped me there. I wasn’t in the mood not working anymore in my culinary experiences. I have stopped practicing I have skills in culinary. Instead, I got more addicted more in computer. I little did more interested in drawing and writing. Somehow I lost in my tracks thinking if I was able to go back what I was doing in my life. Then a little television addict came into my life that was started five years ago. It was 2008. Back then, I was also lost somewhere in that middle of the year 2008. I was now focus in drawing and writing. I thought writing makes me different. And at the back of my head, I saw a beautiful multi-media artist, Toni Gonzaga. Her skills into hosting, singing and acting made her different other than artists in the entertainment industry. And I got an awesome taste of her. It was beginning that I really liked her.

 

Well I really didn’t have much of her music studio albums. Only two studio albums I have had it before. It was Nikki Valdez and Antoinette Taus. Two of them were my crushes. Well of course, I got a chance having a taste to have autograph with Nikki Valdez. She was also in singing. What makes it different? I like girls who are in singing or acting in the same of the entertainment industry. Even so, I like more girls who were not so seriously. But Nikki almost left in the showbiz because she was married to the man she loved. That was why even a little fading away like a autumn passing through another season. Toni is a total package I want it having an autograph with her and also having with a photograph. I saw numerous celebrities before. But I was shocked when I saw big names like John Lloyd Cruz, Sarah Geronimo, Mark Bautista, Senator Jinggoy Estrada, Danny Javier and among others. Of course, Danny Javier was related in our family tree. Danny was my father’s first cousin. So much to speak, but to tell you the truth honestly, some of my lineage in my father’s side was getting to know importantly. Not that I knew Mark Bautista, Dingdong Avanzado and Pilar Pilapil were among my relatives in my father’s lineage of huge clan we have had.

 

I guessed I have had my emotional sides again. With mixed reactions I have right now is unquestionable. And of course, it was my first time I have paid my first visit to one of my huge inspirations was none other, Rico Yan. I have visited him last October 2012. And little I knew about him, I also knew him for a long time. Since the beginning he have had huge commercial he was in, I began let my mom to buy me that product. And of course, I got excited to use the product. And at the end of the long run, he became my huge inspiration after he died in Los Palmas in the day of Good Friday, 2002. It is exactly 11 years for now. And everyone are planning to celebrate Rico’s birthday on March 14, and the day he died on March 29. And it is Good Friday again for this year. I became shocked and grief having hearing him died. And the part of my life became torn and depressed. But life has to move on although he is already gone.

 

Back to the topics of celebrity crushes I am saying, Toni is now my ultimate celebrity crush. Every time I see her in commercial, it is more than asking her to go out with me although she is engage with Director Paul Soriano. Well, it takes many years achieving a goal marrying your partner. Being having a celebrity status sometimes takes a hiatus. Some of celebrity I know have hiatus already. I become too much obsess wanting to work with the entertainment industry as an actor, a dancer or something else I want to work related in entertainment industry. Right now, I am doing the same thing I am used loving from my heart as a writer, a poet and a justified citizen listening to the government and topics under the clouds, a limitless.

 

Aside Toni Gonzaga I have celebrity crushes for today’s generation, they are Julia Montes, Anne Curtis and Angelica Panganiban. Hahaha, that is not perfect for me waiting patiently when I will be marrying a partner in the future. Because despite having Down syndrome doesn’t stop me there. I don’t want to hide anymore but to accept it whole-heartedly. And it might come for me a big break in the future. It is that they are beautiful humans in the human society. And the human society is a perfect conversation to talk about but not having to create an issue. Making an issue breaks gently as a controversial issue. Hmm, if it makes true for that. In my conditions, somehow a little road for me is waiting patiently where I can find a suitable partner for me. Because I believe someday a time will calling me to marry a girl for me. And I am not in a hurry to get a partner in my life. So much to say and so much to ask doesn’t respond me there, but normally it is who you are and the character you are right now.

 

Among the new shows I watch in a television for now are May Isang Pangarap, Kahit Konting Pagtingin, Juan Dela Cruz, Ina Kapatid Anak and Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw in the afternoon and night respectively in the channel shows I am watching. And starting on Monday, the new show Apoy Sa Dagat will starting right after Ina Kapatid Anak. And of course, the well-most loved series I always watched was Be Careful With My Heart. The synopsis I am writing about Be Careful With My Heart is still unfinished because the loved program I am watching is still on the run. Hopefully Sir Chief and Maya will get married soon. Because I am waiting Sir Chief will have a chance to kiss Maya’s hand to kiss or in the cheeks, or the most I want it to be happen is a kiss in lips. That is exactly what I have in my mind. Jodi Santa Maria is playing her character as Maya and Richard Yap is the leading man in the longest running daytime morning series Be Careful With My Heart series as Richard. And the climax is not still there. Because when the climax reaches, that’s the end of the story in the end.

 

I don’t know about within the cast I know in ABS-CBN. Since the part of my life before was all shows watching from my childhood. The only shows I was watching before was less in the defunct name of ABC-5 (now as TV-5 that Manny Pangilinan bought the network) and GMA-7. It was Love Stories in ABC-5 and cartoon shows in GMA-7 I only watched it before. And the starting point gives me turning around is Channel 2 or also known as ABS-CBN I’ve been watching for a long time in my life. Although I knew little names in GMA-7 were my friends working already in GMA-7 network or sister companies that network bought and built. But I won’t name them here in my article I am writing about my celebrity crushes.

Britney Spears was also known as the Princess of Pop before during my time. Although some of her songs I’ve always listened to, she reminded me as my childhood days. Just because I mention her, it is because about what I know about her. Britney Jean Spears or also known as Britney Spears, was one of my favorite artists before. I have had a music tapes that I bought from a music store legally. Unlike to some broke illegal vendors, they are really pissed off the image of some artists who are trying to sell their music products. People like them are called plagiarism or also known as the fake vendors, or in short, pirated vendors.

 

She started in the Mickey Mouse club before in Walt Disney. Although I may sound I know her, it’s just a little information I get from her. Britney was already in the year that I was also born. Both of us are in the Year of the Rooster, and count the years if you are correct. I was in the zodiac sign of between Pisces and Aquarius and she was in Sagittarius. A lot of people really don’t care of the superstition stuff. Because in my opinion, they are my illegally beliefs of being superstitious.

 

Despite of her hiatus because of her marriage and the kids she conceived were her priorities being as the young mother. But I have seen the worst when she delivered like Madonna and Janet Jackson. That was her huge inspirations she was looking after them. Maybe I didn’t know in the first place were being politely asking the same matters.

 

Her songs in her first album Baby One More Time was released in 1999. The gap of those years were also the same for N’Sync, Back Street Boys, All-4-One, Destiny’s Child, Spice Girls, Boyzone, Westlife and some to mention boy-band and girl-band were introduced in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Her first single Baby One More Time gave her breakthrough in the music industry. And so the other songs also that I loved to hear such as (You Drive Me) Crazy, Sometimes, Born To Be Make You Happy, From the Bottom of my Heart and The Beats Goes On. I loved hearing her songs and driving me nuts as if I wildly danced all night long before. But to tell you the truth, I really loved her as an artist.

 

Then the next album she release was Oops! I Did It Again that released in the year of 2000. Her pop-beat dance song Oops! I Did It Again was all-time dance song I’ve ever listened back before. It repeatedly played in my cassette player. So much I realized that the music generation really achieved something. But insanely to tell you the truth, her other to-hit songs was also here such as Stronger, Lucky and Don’t Let Me Be the Last to Know. Four of her songs went in my top list. But I didn’t remember in the past if she made it to the top number 1. Maybe so or maybe not, I just don’t know the answer.

 

Her third studio album Britney came in the year of 2001, two years before my college graduation. And I remembered the time Destiny’s Child was also in the top list in videos and billboard. Every song counted in was a competition between Beyonce, Spice Girls and Christina Aguilera. Christina Aguilera was her friend she used to be with back of the old days in Mickey Mouse Club. What I have had seen it before, it was the year that I really loved that year. Her most top hits was I’m a Slave 4 U, Boys, Anticipating and I’m Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman. I defined her as the goddess of pop music. Well you don’t want to be judge anyway as I would love to be a music judge. And it was the year that American Idol introduced in the television series. What can I do if I remember those music industry? I just love to hear their soulful and sometimes a joyful singing voice.

 

The funny thing I remembered about Britney Spears was kissing a fellow and old musician Madonna in one of the famous awarding ceremony. It was the act. That was the time I firstly heard the single Me Against The Music that she was paired with Madonna in a music video. That song was the first released from her fourth studio album In The Zone. And the controversy music video song she released Toxic came through back of my head. I didn’t know why I gave her this song she sang was very controversy. It was all about the nudity she claimed for her fourth studio album. Hopefully I wasn’t able seeing her loud voice singing to my back of my head. One of her songs was very one of the huge controversies I have ever heard was Touch of My Hand. It had a meaning as masturbating. Oh no, there goes a mind blacking out of my back of my mind telling not recreating something very awful that I heard. Anyway, it was a word.

 

Then her history was already over. Her hiatus became dropping her fame so fast. Being despite she married to her childhood friend came to her music fame as a dead artist. Then later, she divorced her husband after 55 hours. Hmm…that was so fast for two days and seven hours of marriage. Was she out of her mind? Maybe so or maybe she doesn’t cared of her music fame. Then came along the name of Kevin Federline. She married him and conceived two children. Then again later, she pulled out of her wedding ring and just said, “this is over.” Maybe she didn’t give the world knowing and understanding her music fame. Anyway back to the topic I was saying, her fifth studio album Blackout carried a little of curiosity and anxiety of all her fans was. And I remembered during the year 2007 was a disastrous to me. Even so, it was chaotic to me. Two of her songs went top-hits such as Gimme More and Radar. Those were the two songs I watched in the music videos before. Well it doesn’t surprisingly that she appeared so late in her life.

 

Her sixth studio album Circus gave her another breakthrough despite having another music video controversy again that was released in November 2008. It was the Womanizer music video gave critics knowing she was too hot knowing as the next Madonna as I presumed. Her two other songs Circus and If U Seek Amy also gave a top-hit songs. But I guessed her songs were not the same Britney I knew before. I know her because of the type of pop music. And it was because of all the hiatus being as a mother and a critically-acclaimed status during those years.

 

And the seventh studio album Femme Fatale was released two years ago, 2011. And it was the only song I remembered was Criminal, also one of her critically-acclaimed controversy. Even so, maybe Britney that I know now is already dead for me. She is all over the Philippine news. Maybe I am wrong if you might correcting me, (if you mind), but the thing is Britney not the same anymore. I still consider her as one of my favorite artist until now together with Back Street Boys and other boy-band hiatus. And the funny thing in this generation I hear about some of the songs, it is because of the korean pop invasion songs. Before, the boy-band and girl-band material is already taking over the American airwaves and also here in the Philippines airwaves. The korean pop invasion songs are similar in American airwaves. At the back of my head, Koreans are more like Americans. Don’t judge me yet, this is only the article but I am so sorry bringing up this issue. But I also love other Korean pop invasion songs. The girl-band Korean groups I’ve really like are Girls’ Generation and 2NE1. Not to mention I also like Park Shin Hye. To tell you the truth, it’s all about the music I’ve really like. And the last thing you have to know why I am writing some of my articles of What I know about…(Unnamed Artist), it is all because I love to write about them I know. It’s not that I judge them, but to hear properly some of the good stories they have and not the bad stories. Artists are also humans just like us as the part of the human society.
