‘I’ll never forget our friendship’: Michael V inalala si Francis Magalona



Inalala ni Michael V. ang ika-14 anibersaryo ng pagpanaw ng Master Rapper na si Francis Magalona o “Kiko.”

Nagbahagi si Bitoy ng throwback picture kasama sina Kiko at singer na si Kitchie Nadal kalakip ang nakaka-touch na kuwento sa likod nito.

“Yup, this happened at one point in our lives thanks to Kiko himself. Alam n’ya how I loved Kitchie’s music (check out my parody) kaya nu’ng nag-produce s’ya ng show sa Klownz, he called me up and invited me to watch her live and meet her backstage,” sabi ni Bitoy.

Hindi niya raw malilimutan ang araw na ‘yon kagaya ng hindi niya paglimot sa pagkakaibigan nila.

“I’ll never forget that day. Same way I’ll never forget our friendship. Maraming salamat brod,” dagdag niya.

Samantala, inalala rin si Kiko ng kaniyang pamilya. Nagbahagi ang asawa niyang si Pia Magalona ng larawan nang dalawin nila ang puntod ni Francis M.

“Fourteen. Bless the man if his heart and his land are one. Three Stars & a Sun,” sabi niya sa caption.

Sa hiwalay na post ay nagpasalamat siya sa lahat ng mga nakaalala sa kaniyang asawa.

“Commemorating FrancisM’s 14th year since he passed away from AML. Thank you to all who remember, and pls say a prayer for us,” caption niya.

Ang anak naman nilang si Saab Magalona ay nagbahagi ng mga larawan nang dalawin nila ang puntod ng ama.

“Visited pop this morning, 14 years after we said goodbye… I’m sure pop is loving that his grandkids are dancing on his grave, proving that showmanship runs in the family. Love you, papa! #FrancisMForever,” sabi naman ni Saab.

Samantala, sinabi naman ni Maxene na araw-araw niyang nami-miss ang ama mula nang mawala ito.

“We lost you 14 years ago today and we’ve been missing you every day since. My love for you is undying, Pop. Rap in paradise.”

Direk Lauren sa bagong direksyon ni Liza: ‘It’s her life’




Inusisa ng entertainment reporters si Star Magic Head Direk Lauren Dyogi kaugnay sa kontrobersyal na pahayag ni Liza Soberano sa kaniyang vlog.

Matatandaang sinabi ni Liza na hindi siya nabigyan ng pagkakataong magdesisyon para sa sarili.

“I had always been told what to do, what to wear, what to say and what not to say. I know this was for my own good. It was to protect me and my career, but it was a career that I had no say in. A career that in many ways wasn’t mine. I didn’t even choose the name Liza. It was chosen for me,” sabi niya.

Ani Direk Lauren, iniisip niya na lang kung ano talaga ang nais iparating ni Liza – ang kagustuhang hanapin ang sarili na karapatan naman niyang gawin.

“Iniisip ko na lang kung ano talaga yung gusto niyang sabihin. Minsan kasi it’s just a manner of how you say it. Maybe she meant something else… Kaya lang her being outspoken sometimes, to some people, hindi ‘yun dumadating nang tama,” sabi niya sa panayam na ibinahagi ng PEP sa kanilang YouTube channel.

“But take it as it is, she is just saying that she wants to find her own self and she wants to explore it on her own and we should allow her that because it’s her life.”

Naniniwala rin si Direk Lauren na maraming artista ang nakapag-isip-isip kung ano talaga ang nais nilang gawin dahil sa pandemya.

“I think the pandemic did a lot to our artists, hindi lang naman kay Liza. Ang dami na talagang napapaisip kung ano talaga yung gusto nilang gawin. ’Yung isolation, ‘yung pandemya, ‘yung shutdown ng network, it really forces us to think about the future in our own decision,” dagdag pa niya.

Naisip niya rin daw na maaaring nag-quarter life questioning si Liza na normal namang pinagdadaanan.

“Nangyayari naman sa atin yun e. So we allow her to explore and aspire for something better for herself… Let’s just wish her well because her achievements and accomplishments are also accomplishments for us, especially for those people who helped her in the beginning.”
