Gloc 9 shares his sentiment on netizens' reaction for supporting VP Binay for Presidency

Rap artist Gloc9 (Aristotle Pollisco in real life) had broken his silence on netizens' reactions for endorsing VP Jejomar Binay's bid for Presidency.

Gloc9 was seen performing at the proclamation rally of Abby Binay, daughter of VP Binay, who's running for Mayor in Makati City last Monday, March 28. Gloc9 was bashed and criticized by netizens on social media.

In his Instagram account on Wednesday night, Gloc 9 expressed his sentiments on the issue.

"Pinag sabihan po ako ng aking management na huwag nang mag salita tungkol dito pero di ko po kaya", he said on his opening statement.

Gloc9 said he respects the opnion of the people, of his fans despite the harsh words and criticisms he's getting.

"Nais ko pong malaman ng lahat na nababasa ko ang mga saloobin ninyo at nirerespeto ko ito kahit na minsan masasakit na ang mga salitang kasama nito."

He also apologized to his critics for endorsing a politician who's different from theirs.

"Paumanhin po kung hindi nasunod ang gusto ninyo at mawalang galang na din po sa mga nag sasabing hindi pwedeng TRABAHO LANG ITO dahil ITO LAMANG NAMAN PO ANG TRABAHO KO."

"Hindi po ito hobby na naging trabaho ito po ay isang pangarap na ipinaglaban ko ng halos dalawang dekada sa kahit na saan ano at kanino at maitutuloy ko lamang ito kung ito ang magiging hanap buhay ko."

Gloc9 says he had performed on stage of different political candidates but pointed out to critics that whom he decided to perform for isn't someone whom his critics favor. Further, he insisted that every politician has their own dirt but hoped for someone who would win would serve best for the country.

"Ako ay kumakanta sa entablado ng ibat ibang kandidato marahil ay hindi nyo lang gusto ang isang entabladong sinampahan ko. Katulad ng lahat may kanya kanyang dungis na ibinabato sa bawat isa sa kanila gayon paman i wish all the candidates good luck sa darating na elections at naway ang mapipili ay tunay na mag sisilbi at tamang mamumuno sa bayan natin."

In the end, Gloc9 said he would apologize not to his critics but to his children if ever whom he decided to endorsed is guilty of their accusations.

"At sa may mga sama ng loob kung sakaling ang lahat po ng bintang duro at akusasyon ninyo sa huli ay mapapatunayang tama at tunay hihingi po ako ng tawad ngunit hindi sa kahit na sino man dahil higit sa aking pagiging manunulat ng awitin, higit sa aking pagiging ehemplo at higit sa aking pagiging mamamayan ako po ay isang Ama. "

"Hihingi ako ng tawad sa aking mga anak dahil naniniwala ako na sa kanila lamang ako may pananagutan. "

"Salamat po. Gloc-9"


And to this, we salute you Gloc9 for taking a stand. #Respect

In some blind items that circulated today on some papers, a popular young actress is said to be engaged to a her also popular boyfriend. But other sources say that the couple is yet to be engaged.

Are Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli engaged?

The couple being referred to is Sarah Geronimo and Matteo Guidicelli.

But these are mere speculations since the couple is too secretive of their relationship.

Some people are attributing the possibility of the rumor as true because the Popstar Royalty has refused to accept the job as part of the jury in the new season of The Voice Kids PH.

In a not so distant past, Matteo thanked his fans for constantly supporting him on his projects. In this video, posted by @_diplomatts_ on Instagram, the Dolce Amore actor pleaded to his fans to not get tired of him and hope to still see them on his wedding.

"Sana guys you don't get tired of me..... Sana sa wedding ko rin, andiyan pa rin kayo.".

Angelica Panganiban wants Alex Gonzaga axed from Game ng Bayan

Actress Angelica Panganiban definitely had a good time pinch-hitting for Alex Gonzaga as co-host in ABS-CBNs new game show, Game ng Bayan.

On her Instagran account on Tuesday, Angelica expressed how much she enjoyed bonding with the people in a barangay and how happy she was that she was tapped to replace Alex who was busy that day.

"Napakasaya maki bonding sa mga ka barangay kanina 🤗 masayang masaya ako dahil busy ka,@cathygonzaga 👹 dahil nag enjoy talaga ko kanina."

Angelica added that she wants Gonzaga to get busier each day for her to always take the latter's place.

"Hinihiling ko, na maging mas busy ka pa. Para ako lagi ang papalit sayo."

But did Angelica go overboard when she said the production team of the show met and thought of the ways how to axe Alex from the show?

"PS nag mmeeting sila ngayon kung pano sasabihin sayong tanggal ka na sa show. At ako na ang bagong utol nila"

But knowing how "Madam Claudia" go sarcastic from time to time and inject humor in most of her social media posts.

"✌🏼️✌🏼✌🏼 love you bi! Take it easy."

Angelica and Alex are also co-stars in Saturday late-night sitcom Banana Sundae.

Luis Manzano still mum on failed relationship with Angel Locsin

Luis Manzano still mum on failed relationship with Angel Locsin

TV host and Social coMedian Luis Manzano is still mum  on questions about ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin and their failed relationship.

In an interview with entertainment website PEP.ph, Luis refused to confirm whether he indeed unfollowed Locsin on Twitter after they supposedly broke up.

“Anything to do with Angel, tahimik na lang ako. Mas tama na lang 'yun for both parties. Tahimik na lang ako sa lahat ng bagay,” he said.

Manzano said it’s hard to comment about their relationship because there will always be people who will misinterpret whatever he says.

“Ang showbiz kasi, ang bawat sagot namin ay seed. Seed 'yan na bubunga ng kung anu-anong bagay kahit gusto mo o hindi. Kahit napakaganda ng intention mo sa sagot mo, makakahanap at makakahanap ng mali ang taong naghahanap ng mali,” he said.

But according to our own research, the actor indeed unfollowed Locsin on Twitter. In a website that answers if one user is following another on Twitter, @luckymanzano is no longer following @143redangel but the latter is following the former.

Luis Manzano unfollows Angel Locsin on Twitter

In January, Locsin and Manzano admitted having problems with their relationship. At that time, the two maintained that they are working on a solution.

However, Locsin seemed to have confirmed her split with Manzano through an Instagram post in February where she referred to him as her “ex.”

Cristine Reyes breaks silence; apologizes to Vivian Velez

Cristine Reyes breaks silence; apologizes to Vivian Velez

Kapamilya star Cristine Reyes has finally broken her silence on the feud which involves her and Tubig at Langis co-star Vivian Velez.

Reyes said she has high regard for senior stars and that she treats them with utmost respect. She also denied that she told Velez to vacate the room where they are sharing.

Prior to this, ABS-CBN has released an statement regarding the incident.

Read related story: "I have never been so upset and humiliated by an actress in my entire career", Vivian Velez on Cristine Reyes

The following is a letter sent by Cristine Reyes through Viva Entertainment to entertainment website pep.ph

"I just want to put things in perspective.

I have always put our senior stars in high regard and do my best to treat them with much respect.

In fact, I have not had any incidents like this with anyone, senior or otherwise, on the set of any project until now.”

When we first started taping for Tubig at Langis, everyone was working well together.

But about two weeks ago, I had an issue with the tent assigned to me.

It was infested with so many mosquitos that made it very uncomfortable to stay in.

I was also quite afraid of any of us getting dengue.

The Associate Producer (AP) instructed the production staff to put katol but it proved ineffective.

I endured that taping day with the production’s promise to transfer me to a better dressing room in FUTURE tapings.

I thought that it was not so much to ask because I’m the first to arrive and the last to be packed up most of the time due to the volume of sequences I had to do every taping day.

The next taping after that, I was transferred to a better dressing room.

It was the master’s bedroom of the location we were at.

From then on, that area became my regular dressing room or standby area.

Last Thursday (March 3), the Executive Producer (EP) asked me if Ms. Vivian can share the dressing room with me because her assigned area was not ready to be occupied yet.

I of course agreed. I was fine sharing a room with any of my co-stars for as long as we have mutual respect.

I would not have agreed with production if I had any ill feelings towards Ms Vivian.”

My staff and I came from shooting for a movie that day so we were all tired.

We tried to get some rest and sleep in the bedroom but Ms Vivian made it difficult for us.

She was busy fixing her things and in the process made a lot of noise.

She was also arguing with her Production Assistant then quite loudly that made sleeping impossible at that point.

At some point I stood up to use the rest room and was annoyed to see the toilet bowl unflushed, so when I went out I immediately called my make-up artist's attention thinking it was he who last used the bathroom.

I went out to get some air and went to where the common area for artists and production was. The EP asked me why I was there. I said that it was difficult to sleep with Ms Vivian inside the room.

The EP told me not to worry because Ms Vivian’s dressing room will soon be ready.”

To quote the EP: ‘Pagpasensiyahan mo na. Mawawala na din siya sa show kase nag-demand si Vivan na kung hindi papalitan ang wardrobe at stylist, patayin na lang daw siya sa show.’

Some time passed and finally the dressing room of Ms Vivian was ready.

From what I understand, she was first notified by the production assistants and upon being notified she threw a fit blaming me for her transfer.

The EP immediately tried to pacify her but she stood her ground and continued shouting, telling everyone that I was the one booting her out of the room.

It was then that I found out that the room assigned to me weeks back after the tent and mosquito incident used to be hers. I was not privy to this and so I fully understood what she was going through.

I then opted to just transfer and move out from the room assigned to me to ease tensions.

Later I spoke to the EP and requested a dialogue with Ms Vivian so I can make it clear with her that I had nothing to do with the request for her to transfer rooms.

To be very clear about it, I never requested anyone at any point for Ms Vivian to be transferred rooms.

In fact, I gladly welcomed production’s request for her to share a room with me while her room was still unavailable.

And despite the inconvenience I encountered while she was around, I had no intentions whatsoever of booting her out.

The EP told me that it was impossible at that time to have a dialogue with Ms Vivian because her emotions were still so high.

I did not want to push it too and, out of frustration and stress, I cried to my co-star Zanjoe Marudo.”

Thursday taping finally packed up so we all went home with this issue unresolved.

Saturday taping followed, and upon arriving on the set, I was still stressed out that the incident has yet to reach any kind of resolution.

My co-stars on the set were joking around with me about the incident with jokes like, and I quote, ‘AA, sasabay daw si Ms Vivian sa car mo paglipat natin ng location, ayos lang ba?’ etc etc.

Our EP heard the jokes and instructed my co-stars to stop fooling around about the issue because the atmosphere is tense enough already.

The EP turned to me and said, and I quote, ‘Konting tiis na lang AA. Sa Monday kakausapin na siya ng management para sa pagkawala niya sa show.’

Still I would’ve appreciated a resolution better because I had nothing to do with the issue of Ms Vivian's source of anger. It was the production staff that was trying to transfer her and not me.

I in fact made the initiative to be the one to transfer dressing rooms that day to stop the issue then.”

I was so stressed that when it was finally time for me to do a scene where Ms Vivian will be present I was trying to motivate myself by just singing Avril Lavigne’s ‘Goodbye’ song before doing the scene.

It was of course subliminal because of my knowledge of her departure from the show.

It was short of saying to myself precisely what the EP informed me earlier.

More than anything, it was my way of dealing with the situation to get the job done.

The scene was shot and thank God it was not with Ms Vivian directly but with Zanjoe.

Ms Vivian was also there but her point of view was also with Zanjoe.”
When the taping of the scene was done, I was still stressed and continued singing while I was walking up the stairs towards my dressing room to ease some of my stress and tension.

It was at the point where I was on the stairs that Ms Vivian and her make-up artist charged towards me.

Ms Vivian started to shout at me and, I quote, ‘Ako ba ang pinariringgan mo!? Sino ka ba?! Superstar ka ba?!

I got rattled at this point and I just answered her in a mild manner, ‘Kumakanta lang naman ako, masama ba kumanta?'

And it was at this point that Zanjoe pulled me away from the scene because he was alarmed with the way both Ms Vivian and her make-up artist were charging toward me.”
I am sorry that some gaps in the communication between the production staff, Ms Vivian, and myself escalated some issues.

I reiterate that I wanted them resolved soonest for everyone’s peace of mind.

I am also sorry that emotions got so heightened that some of my actions were misconstrued for rudeness when they were, more than anything else, my own way of coping with the stressful working conditions on the set in this particular instance.

But I sincerely apologize if it hurt Ms Vivian or anybody else.

I do have high regard for and respect with thanks senior artists who have paved the way for stars like me in the industry."
