MANILA – After more than two years of not being in the social media sphere, singer-actress Sarah Geronimo returned to the microblogging site Twitter on Wednesday.

Using the new Twitter handle @JustSarahG, the popular Kapamilya talent, in her first tweet, said she is happy to be back on the microblogging site.

“Hi everyone! This is sarah g. And I'm back on twitter. :)” she said.

She also invited her loyal supporters to watch her upcoming movie with John Lloyd Cruz in her succeeding tweets.

“Iniimbitahan ko po kayong lahat na muling subaybayan ang love story nila miggy at laida. May happy ending nga ba para sa kanila? Sabay-sabay po sana natin alamin. Malapit na... sa March 30,” she tweeted.

In just three hours since she first posted her tweet, Geronimo’s account already garnered over 2,500 followers.

As of writing, Geronimo is only following 16 people on Twitter including Martin Nievera, Anne Curtis, Yeng Constantino, Jed Madela, Angeline Quinto and KC Concepcion.

This is not the first time that Geronimo joined Twitter. On April 8, 2010, the singer already joined the social networking site under the handle @Sgeronimo25.

She already earned more than one million followers in that account but her fans were saddened when she decided to leave her first account dormant.

Sarah Geronimo: A Decade In
By Joseph R. Atilano
INQUIRER.net
April 6, 2013 | 7:01 am

This piece is not meant to give a chronological listing of achievements by and recognitions given to Sarah Geronimo. But I’m writing from the perspective of an 18 year old teenager–which I was then–who saw a contestant by chance on a talent show on TV while changing channels. I thought she showed so much talent, had that elusive ”IT” factor, and had such an enchanting appeal about her that was hard not to notice. That was in 2003. I recall sitting in my room watching TV and seeing a young teenage girl delivering an astounding performance and a thought crossed my mind: “If she wins, she will become a big star someday. If she survives all the politicking in showbiz, then she will certainly become one of the best ever.”  That performance of hers got me excited again about the probabilities of having new artists under the OPM banner. Here was a young girl named Sarah Geronimo, a name that I hoped we would all know one day.

Changing of the Guard
When I saw “Asia’s Songbird” congratulate and hug Sarah Geronimo who won the competition, that right there for me, felt as if time stood momentarily still. It was like I was witnessing the “passing of the torch” to Sarah Geronimo. And in my eyes, I felt this was that very moment that signalled things were about to change in the landscape of OPM. And more importantly, it started the introduction of “new blood” into our selection of available mainstream singers in OPM. That was the time to make things happen and to bring about much change that I believed was needed for OPM to flourish once more. Looking back at that eventful moment, it brought a whole new meaning to me. I wonder just how many other Filipinos felt also how significant that moment was?
A sign of things to come

One of the things I notice now when I watch game shows, reality talent shows, and noontime shows is that when the host asks the participants who they look up to or idolize as a singer, most of the participants include Sarah Geronimo’s name in their list. That is a change for the better in the right direction because it is no longer the same names that we usually heard. The first time I had heard Sarah Geronimo’s name mentioned by a participant in a singing competition as an influence and inspiration, it was refreshing to hear and it was a welcome surprise. It meant that Sarah Geronimo had finally broken through the proverbial “glass ceiling” and entered the consciousness of young Filipinos aspiring to be singers one day! By her own example, she showed them to dream big, too.

Making the switch
I had always felt that Sarah Geronimo was treated like a “frozen delight” in the first network she was in. I was so, so dissapointed. Why weren’t they utilizing her more then? Why wasn’t she appearing or guesting in more shows? Why wasn’t she a regular mainstay in their Sunday noon show? These questions were racing in my mind. Even as an observer, these ”none” developments frustrated me. Why were these happening to her? It was as if all the anticipation and excitement to see her perform on a more regular basis on television was starting to fizzle away. It made me think if all above were being done, in fact, to make people forget about Sarah Geronimo? Was it because some people were intimidated by her presence? After a year in limbo on that network, I’m just happy that she finally found a network that wouldn’t waste her talents but nurtured them–not only singing, but acting and hosting, as well. You can’t put a good person down and there will always be people who would look after you and allow you to grow. Sarah Geronimo blossomed and excelled in the network she has been a part of for 9 years now. The path has been cleared for her and we have seen how Sarah Geronimo has blossomed from that young girl to now earning the title “Pop Princess” which she rightfully deserves.

Undoubtedly Filipino
Sarah Geronimo, to me, represents a “modern take” on the traditional Filipina lass–truly, “isang tunay na dalagang Filipina sa panahon ngayon.” Her reputation has remained unsullied despite her being an established and respected name in OPM. Her coy, yet charming mannerisms, and her almost modest comportment in her beautifully crafted costumes even as she performs on stage, bespeak of her well-grounded Filipino values. In my opinion, she is someone that the youth can also look up to and is a perfect female role model for other young aspiring singers.

Sarah Geronimo opens up about her family

ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 04/10/2013 5:55 PM | Updated as of 04/10/2013 6:01 PM

MANILA, Philippines -- After a decade in showbiz, Sarah Geronimo admittedly is only starting to learn how to balance being the country's "Pop Star Princess" and a 24-year-old daughter behind the camera.


Sarah Geronimo. File photo

In a one-hour, uncut interview released online early this week, the Kapamilya singer-actress spoke at length about her struggles as a "public figure" and simply "being Sarah Geronimo."

The interview, where she appeared alongside "It Takes a Man and a Woman" co-star John Lloyd Cruz, was first aired last month on the entertainment talk show "Showbiz Inside Report" as an 18-minute segment, but excluded parts where Geronimo addressed questions on her "struggles" in her decade-long career.

One question posed by "SIR" host Carmina Villaroel pertained to the singer's difficulty being "judged" as one of the country's most popular artists: "Maraming naka-witness sa journey ninyo, so personal niyong buhay at sa career ninyo. Maraming intriga na ang napagdaanan ninyo. Gaano kahirap maging Sarah Geronimo?"

Geronimo responded: "Ako, honestly mahirap, mahirap po. Kasi nandoon 'yung struggle mo na, sino ba talaga ako?"

"Sino ba talaga si Sarah Geronimo na nakilala nila ng 10 years dito sa business na 'to? Sino si Sarah Geronimo na anak ni mommy, ng mga Geronimo? At 'yun 'yung palaging nagtatalo -- becoming my real self at kung ano 'yung gusto ng taong makita sa akin. May struggle doon," she said.

The singer-actress, who first rose to fame after winning the singing contest "Star for a Night" in 2003, added that her years in showbiz have helped her in finding her "true self."

"Merong positive na nabibigay, kasi parang 'yun 'yung guide mo to become a good person. In a way, magulang mo sila, 'yung career na meron ako ngayon," she said.

Admitting that she is still a "work in progress," Geronimo said she is slowly discovering her "identity," but is still far from being able to define herself. "Mahirap! Masyadong mahirap sabihin muna ngayon," she said.

'Speaking up'

One turning point, Geronimo recalled, was when she was forced to come to the defense of her parents, specifically her mother Divine Geronimo, who became the target of criticisms for allegedly "preventing" the singer from having any romantic relationship.

"Hindi lang naman [para sa akin]," the Kapamilya actress said of "speaking up." "Kasi 'yung parents ko rin eh, sobra na silang, bina-bash na, sobra na. 'Yun 'yung talagang nag-trigger na, 'Ah, ganoon ah. Teka muna.'"

"May conclusion na sila eh, na, 'Teka muna, hindi niyo po alam kung ano ang totoong nangyari,'" she added.

Asked what she feels is the most hurtful comment made against her parents, Geronimo paused, before saying, "Ayoko na pong anohin, huwag na lang po."

Although her being in the limelight exposed her family to intrigues, it is the same career that Geronimo credits for providing them with a more comfortable life.

On what she considers to be an "unforgettable" effort she has done for the benefit of her family, Geronimo said, "Ako kasi po hindi ko siya binibilang. Lagpas lang. Hindi ko nga naiisip."

"[Iyong pagbibigay-saya sa pamilya ko] naman 'yung main reason talaga kung bakit ako pumasok sa show business," she said.

Geronimo recalled that as an aspiring singer, she felt like giving up after numerous failures, but was pushed to continue pursuing a career in showbiz to escape poverty.

"Gusto ko na po talaga bata pa lang ako, pero dumating 'yung time na wala na gusto ko na magi-give up kasi wala namang nangyayari. Pero nung nakita ko na sobrang hirap na hirap na kami... Para sa pera kung bakit ako sumali sa contest," she said.

'Don't let fame change you'

Admittedly, however, being "Pop Star Princess," whose achievements have also been recognized internationally, comes with a price. "Siyempre mahirap po mag-artista, public figure. Mahirap, maraming kapalit," Geronimo said.

At times when she feels overwhelmed by work and certain intrigues, Geronimo said she tries to remind herself of the comforts her career has afforded her over the years.

"Minsan nakakalimutan mo 'yung mga small things. Hindi [lang] small things, 'yung talagang malaking pagbabago sa buhay mo. Dati mahirap kayo, wala kang makain, walang pambili ng shampoo, toothpaste, pamasahe.

"Kung iisipin mo ngayon, may Jollibee ka, meron kang Sunsilk, may shampoo ka na, meron ka pang lotion, 'yung mga whitening lotion, may aircon ka na, 'yung mga ganoon --

"So 'yun na lang 'yung titingnan mo po kapag malungkot ka o depressed ka," she said.

Amid her immense success in the industry, Geronimo said she is careful not to compromise her values. She also expressed thanks to her parents, who she credits for the sound advice on handling her being a public figure.

"[Ang advice nila], 'Don't let fame change you.' Itong show business na ito, pwede niyang baguhin ang values mo, ang pananaw mo sa buhay, sa kahit ano. At mahirap iyon, kasi mahirap i-please ang mundo at ang Diyos nang sabay," she said.

If Sarah Geronimo is not as visible as her leading man John Lloyd Cruz, who is on TV most of the time thanking everyone who watched “It Takes a Man and a Woman,” it is reportedly because she is in Paris with her mother.

They are there to visit a sister of Sarah who is reportedly based there. Another sister resides in New York.

It is just a brother and Sarah who live with their parents in their home in a subdivision in Quezon City.

When Sarah comes home, she will be busy with two TV shows. One is a drama anthology, and the other is the reality singing show, “The Voice Philippines,” where she will sit as one of the judges, together with Lea Salonga, Bamboo and international Filipino singer Apl de Ap.

Toni Gonzaga will be the host of “The Voice Philippines.”

John Lloyd at Sarah posibleng gumawa uli ng panibagong pelikula

Masayang-masaya si John Lloyd Cruz dahil patuloy pa ring pinipilahan sa mga sinehan ngayon ang pelikula nila ni Sarah Geronimo na It Takes A Man And A Woman.

Tinatayang umabot na sa 300 milyon na ang kinita ng nasabing proyekto ngayong araw. “It’s been overwhelming magmula ng first day, pero di pa rin nawawala ‘yung kaba. Na-intrigue pa rin ako sa moviegoers, inaantay ko kung ano ang mangyayari in the coming days. Marami pang hindi nakakapanood, sana huwag palampasin ng mga tao,” bungad ni John Lloyd.

Ayon sa aktor ay posible raw na gumawa sila ng sequel ng pelikula dahil patuloy na tinatangkilik ang love story nina Miggy Montenegro at Laida Magtalas (karakter nina John Lloyd at Sarah). “If we can come up with a better script than this one, siguro we’re willing to give it a shot, baka puwede pa. Pero kung script pa lang medyo… siguro naman mararamdaman mo naman kung masyado nang pilit, huwag na. I’d rather end this way, personal ko ‘yun. Pero at the end of the day, tayo ay answerable lang sa mga bosses natin. And kung ano sasabihin sa atin, kung sabihin na ituloy natin, isa pa, kaya pa, susunod tayo,” paliwanag ng aktor.

Sarah nagno-nosebleed sa kaka-English, intimidated kina Lea, Apl, at Bamboo; Panliligaw kay KC inamin din Apl.de.Ap, pinakamahal ang TF sa The Voice!

Ni Salve Asis (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated April 13, 2013 - 12:00am


MANILA, Philippines - Si Sarah Geronimo lang ang nagta-Tagalog sa apat na coach ng The Voice of the Philippines. Syempre slang at inglesero ang mga kasama niyang sina – Apl.de.Ap, Lea Salonga and Bamboo.

Kaya naman dinadaan na lang ni Sarah sa tawa at biro. Pero aminado siyang intimidated talaga siya sa mga bigatin niyang kasama sa talent show na mag-uumpisa na sa Hunyo.

“Hindi n’yo po alam kung gaano kalakas ang kabog ng dibdib ko. Dinadaan ko lang sa pa-Ingles-Ingles na barok,” natatawa niyang sabi kahapon sa presscon nilang apat. Biro pa niya nagno-nose bleed siya sa tatlong kasama. “Magta-Tagalog po ako rito.

Si Apl.de.Ap at si Lea, talagang hindi na masyadong ini-expect na magta-Tagalog, pero slang din pala si Bamboo na ang sabi’y lumaki sa Amerika.

Going back to Sarah, nakaka-relate si Sarah sa The Voice dahil aminado naman siyang dumaan siya sa maraming auditions bago siya nagkaroon ng pagkakataon na manalo sa isang contest.

Nabanggit din niyang willing siyang sundan pa ang pelikulang It Takes A Man And A Woman, ang movie nila ni John Lloyd Cruz na balitang nakaka-300 million na. “Gusto ko pong ulitin ang sinabi ni John Lloyd na kung makakapag-come up kami ng better script doon, why not? Kasi maganda po namin siyang natapos. Ang ganda po ng  istorya ni Laida at Miggy, sinuportahan sila. Basta naniniwala ako na magagawa namin kung may maganda pang material,” paliwanag ng Pop Princess.

Anyway, magsisimula ang kumpetisyon sa The Voice of The Philippines sa isa-isang pag-awit ng mga lalahok sa blind auditions kung saan pipili ang coaches kung sino sa mga sasalang ang nais nilang mapabilang sa kanilang team para i-mentor.

Sa oras na sila ay makapagpasya ay pipindutin nila ang kanilang button na siyang uudyok sa kanilang swiveling coaches’ chair para umikot paharap sa entablado at para na rin masilayan na nila ang mukha sa likod ng ginintuang boses na kanilang napili. Kapag mahigit dalawang coach ang pumili sa isang artist, kinakailangan nilang magdebate at kumbinsihin ang artist na sila ang piliing coach nito.

Matapos mapili ang mga miyembro ng kani-kanilang koponan ay magsisimula na ang mga coach sa pag-mentor at pagsasanay sa kanilang mga artist at pagbabanggain ang dalawa sa mga ito sa ikawalang round na tinatawag na “battle rounds.” Dito ay magpapatalbugan ang mga artist sa battle stage at ibibigay ang lahat para mapabilib ang kanilang coach na siyang gagawa ng malaking desisyon kung sino sa kanila ang papauwiin at sino sa kanila ang uusad sa susunod na round ng kumpetisyon— ang live performance shows.

Sa round na ito papasok ang kapangyarihan ng sambayanan dahil maari na nilang iboto ang kanilang mga paboritong artist at salbahin ito mula sa eliminasyon. Sa grand finals, bawat coach ay may isang manok na lang na ilalaban sa kantahan sa pambato ng kalabang coaches at isa lamang sa apat na grand finalists ang kikilalaning The Voice of the Philippines.

Sasamahan ng The Voice Philippines ang 40 iba pang bansa na gumawa na rin ng sarili nilang bersiyon ng The Voice sa telebisyon kabilang na ang popular na US version na pinangungunahan ng host na si Carson Daly at kinabibila­ngan nina Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Cee Lo Green, at Blake Shelton bilang coaches.

Sino ang mapapabilang sa Team Sarah, Team Bamboo, Team Lea, at Team Apl?

Ay may tinanong nga pala kami kung sino sa apat ang may pinakamahal na talent fee?

Walang kakurap-kurap na sagot niya, siyempre si Apl.de.Ap bilang siya ang may international status sa kasalukuyan. Meron din naman siyempre si Lea, pero base sa sagot nang tinanong namin, ang dating member ng Black Eyed Peas na nagpasikat ng maraming­ kanta ang may pinakamalaking bayad sa kanilang apat.

At inamin nga pala ng hiphop sensation na nanligaw siya kay KC Concepcion. Pero tumigil daw siya nang malamang karelasyon nito si Piolo Pascual.

“I was serious at the moment, you know. But unfortunately, time didn’t connect well and I got too busy. But, you know, we are still friends.”

Balita pa noong binigyan niya ng necklace ang anak ni Megastar Sharon Cuneta.

Sarah-John Lloyd film earns P300M, on track to break record

by Miguel Dumaual, ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 04/13/2013 4:03 PM | Updated as of 04/13/2013 4:30 PM


'It Takes a Man and a Woman' trails 'Sisterakas,' 'Benjamin'

MANILA – The third installment in the series of romantic-comedy films starring John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo is poised to become the second highest grossing Filipino movie after only two weeks in theaters.

"It Takes a Man and a Woman" is now on track to bump off the comedy flick "The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin" as the second all-time highest grossing local film, after it earned at least P300 million within its first two weeks in cinemas nationwide.

The box-office figure was disclosed Saturday on micro-blogging site Twitter by Star Cinema advertising and promotions manager Mico del Rosario.

Starring Vice Ganda and directed by Wenn V. Deramas, "Praybeyt Benjamin" reportedly earned P331 million during its theatrical run in 2011.

It places second in terms of total box-office earnings to another Deramas film "Sisterakas," which featured the trio of Vice Ganda, Kris Aquino and Ai Ai delas Alas as lead stars.

Released as an entry to the 2012 Metro Manila Film Festival, "Sisterakas" reportedly earned P391 million during its run in cinemas nationwide, making it the all-time highest grossing Filipino film.

All three top-grossers -- "Sisterakas," "Praybeyt Benjamin," and "It Takes a Man and a Woman," in order -- are co-productions of Star Cinema and Viva Films, which will both be given the Most Popular Film Producers recognition at the 44th Box-Office Entertainment Awards.

Cruz, who will be given the Box Office King title by the same award-giving body on May 19, earlier said it is "difficult to say" whether "It Takes a Man and a Woman" will manage to beat the record of "Sisterakas."

"Hindi ko alam, mahirap sabihin, because when 'Sisterakas' was shown, ano 'yun eh, film fest. Ngayon, matindi pa ang competition, ang daming summer big movies na paparating habang magpe-play kami, so I don't know.

"Hindi ko alam kung ano mangyayari, pero siyempre andoon 'yung... umaasa tayo na magtuluy-tuloy," he said.

Due to the massive success of "It Takes a Man and a Woman," both Cruz and Geronimo have been asked whether a fourth film featuring their characters Miggy and Laida is planned to be produced.

Following the box-office successes of "A Very Special Love" (2008) and "You Changed My Life" (2009), the third big-screen installment, which was also directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina and written by Carmi Raymundo, has been referred to as the conclusion of the Miggy-Laida love story.

While both Cruz and Geronimo have expressed willingness to do yet another sequel, both Kapamilya stars said it will be at the condition of having "a good script and material."

John Lloyd: Sarah made me want to sin

ABS-CBNnews.com

Posted at 04/14/2013 5:45 PM | Updated as of 04/14/2013 9:56 PM


"It Takes a Man and a Woman" lead stars John Lloyd Cruz and Sarah Geronimo

MANILA – Sarah Geronimo played down the statement of her leading man John Lloyd Cruz when he said she made him "want to sin" the first time they worked together for a movie.

In his interview with “Inside The Cinema” last week, Cruz told host Boy Abunda that he was caught by the singer’s charm and magic during their first big screen partnership on “A Very Special Love.”

“Doon ako nadali ni Sarah, ng magic niya, ng charm. Iba siya, iba talaga. In the movie, she made me want to sin. Ang bigat noon, pero kinaya ko,” Cruz said.

But Geronimo tried to de-emphasize Cruz's telling statement in her live interview with “The Buzz” on Sunday.

“Si Lloydie, siya 'yung taong mabilis matuwa, ma-endear sa isang tao. Sa tingin ko iyon lang iyon,” she said.

Regardless of this, Geronimo thanked Cruz for all the achievements that they have shared in their series of romantic-comedy movies.

“Thank you, thank you so much at nagkasama tayo ulit at na-restore din ang ating magandang pagkakaibigan,” she said.

Cruz, for his part, told Geronimo that he will always just be there for the singer-actress even as they await their next project together.

“Sars, thank you for the opportunity, for the friendship. Sana it doesn’t end here. Sana hindi siya matapos and from my end, alam mo naman na I’ll always be here. You’re very special to me. Maraming, maraming salamat na ako ito at ikaw iyan. Thank you,” he said.

While many are hopeful that there will be fourth movie for their characters as Miggy and Laida, Cruz is positive that he and Geronimo will again share the big screen in the future.

“Definitely magkakatrabaho pa kami. This is not the end for me and Sarah. Malabo iyon, imposible iyon. I can’t wait to see the next material for me and Sarah,” he said.

It Takes A Man and A Woman Now Second Highest-Grossing Pinoy Film of All Time

Posted on April 19, 2013 | 3:42 PM

After earning P345 million in less than three weeks in cinemas nationwide, the Sarah Geronimo and John Lloyd Cruz-starrer “It Takes a Man and a Woman” is now officially the second highest-grossing Filipino film of all time and the biggest earning non-Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) local movie.


Miggy-Laida wedding in 'It Takes A Man and A Woman'

The third installment of the hit romantic-comedy film series directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina broke the record of the comedy flick “The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin” starring Vice Ganda, which earned P331 million during its theatrical run in 2011. “It Takes a Man and a Woman” is now second in terms of total box-office earnings after the 2012 MMFF entry “Sisterakas” starring the comedy trio of Vice Ganda, Kris Aquino and AiAi delas Alas, which raked P391 million during its run in cinemas nationwide. All three top-grossers– “Sisterakas,” “The Unkabogable Praybeyt Benjamin,” and “It Takes a Man and a Woman”–are co-productions of Star Cinema and Viva Films.

Meanwhile, “It Takes a Man and a Woman” screenwriter Carmi Raymundo recently revealed that the much talked about wedding vows of Laida and Miggy that made everyone in cinemas cry were written by Sarah and John Lloyd themselves.

“Direk Cathy and I told Sarah and Lloydie that we want them to write Miggy and Laida’s wedding vows. Gusto ko din kasi marinig from them kung ano sa tingin nila yung learnings ng characters nila,” explained Carmi, who was also the headwriter of the first two installments of the series namely “A Very Special Love” and “You Changed My Life.” “Both were nervous kung kaya ba nila magsulat but they were very excited. When they showed me what they wrote, I knew right away that they wrote from the hearts of their characters. They were so sincere, ang ganda!”

Carmi further shared that Sarah and John Lloyd’s self-made vows were so beautifully written that she almost did not edit it. “Konti na lang ang inayos ko. Their vows made the ending of Laida and Miggy’s love story a thousand times more special because they spoke their own words. As a writer, yun na ang gift ko sa kanila: to let them speak their own words. In the end, parang naging buhay na talaga sila Miggy at Laida,” Carmi related.

Continue to fall in love with Laida and Miggy’s love story in “It Takes A Man And A Woman” still showing on theaters nationwide.

[ABS-CBN] Sarah Geronimo says variety show helped her mature as a performer and "as a girl who is now a woman."

"Hindi po naging madali ang pagbuo ng Sarah G Live. Makulay ang journey," says Sarah Geronimo about her musical-variety show that won the Best Variety Show in the 21st Golden Dove Awards.

She admitted that working on Sarah G Live helped a lot not only in her career but also her development as a person.

"Personally po, malaki ang naging tulong sa akin ng pagkakaroon ng sariling variety show para mag-mature, hindi lang as a performer but
also as a person and as a girl who is now a woman. Naks!"

She then let out her trademark giggle.

"Nagpapasalamat po ako sa ABS-CBN management dahil pinagkatiwalaan nila ko na bigyan ng sariling variety show. Sila po ang nagtiwala sa
akin simula pa noong ASAP. Kaya binabahagi ko rin po ang award na ito sa aking ASAP family.

Sarah intimidated sa mga kasama

SHOWBIZ NEWS NOW NA! Ni Boy Abunda (Pilipino Star Ngayon) | Updated May 14, 2013 - 12:00am

Kilala ang ina ni Sarah Geronimo na si Mommy Divine sa pagiging mahigpit nito sa mga anak lalo na sa Pop Princess. Aminado naman si Sarah na may mga pagkakataon na kinukuwestiyon na rin niya ang sariling ina pero nauunawaan naman niya ito.

“There was a time na parang confused ka rin. So, parang sana, malampasan ko na ’yung stage na ’yun. ’Yung naiisip mo sobra ba silang protective? Ano ba ang dahilan? Bakit ganito? Bawal ’yung ganito, bawal ’yung ganyan-ganyan. Pero as I age, as I experience things, as I experience pain, naiintindihan ko kung bakit ganun siya.

“At nagpapasalamat ako ng sobra-sobra na ganun siya ka-protective. May nakita pa kong ibang mothers na mas istrikto pero si Mommy hindi. Sobra niya lang kami talagang mahal,” paliwanag ni Sarah.

Samantala, abala na ngayon ang dalaga para sa bagong reality show na The Voice of the Philippines at kakaibang Sarah ang kailangang abangan ng lahat dito.

“Itong pagiging coach ko sa The Voice is a big challenge for me kasi kumbaga ’di na ako ito eh, ’Di ko na ‘to istorya. ’Di ko na ’to boses. Boses na ‘to ng mga tao na nangangarap. So, in charge ka sa victory nila eh. Ang masakit nun, siyempre may Battle Rounds na, kailangan na mag-eliminate sa team ko, masakit,” paglalarawan ng singer.

Makakasama ng dalaga bilang mga coach din sa programa sina Lea Salonga, apl.de.ap, at Bamboo. Isang malaking karangalan para kay Sarah ang maihilera sa mga ito.

“Actually, nakaka-intimidate po talaga. Tuwing taping day namin nilalabanan ko talaga ‘yung intimidation. Pero nilalakasan ko na lang po ’yung loob ko,” pagtatapat niya.

Sarah Geronimo defends Charice from bashers: ‘We have to respect her’


Sarah Geronimo was quick to defend fellow singer Charice from bashers, stating that it’s unfair for other people to bash the international singing sensation just because her self-expression defies what the society expects of her. “We have to respect her, hindi dahil si Charice Pempengco siya kundi dahil tao siya. Bawat isa [sana mag] respetuhan, tama na, pabayaan na natin si Charice,” said the Popstar Princess in an interview with Push.com.ph and other ABS-CBN entertainment reporters.

Charice is persistently plagued with intrigues as photos of her new hair color and tattoos have been going viral on the Internet, fueling speculations about her rumored lesbian preferences. To which Sarah replied, “Alam mo ang magagawa lang naman natin para sa kanya is to pray for her. Wala naman tayo sa posisyon para masabi kung ano ang tama o mali para sa kanya. Basta tayo magdasal tayo kung ano yung the best para sa personal na buhay niya at singing career niya.”

Likewise, Charice’s mom, Raquel, recently stated in an interview that she would support her daughter should she decide to confirm that she’s a lesbian in public. “Ang sinasabi ng puso ko at isip ko bilang ina ay hayaan ko siyang ilantad kung ano ang tunay na katauhan niya. Kung ano ang gusto niya, dahil doon siya magiging maligaya,” Raquel reportedly told ABS-CBNNews.com last Friday, May 10.

On a different note, Sarah lightened things up as she pointed out that she herself had trouble finding her own identity. Asked if she remembered going through an awkward stage, she cheerfully answered, “Awkward stage ko ito ngayon. Ngayon ko pa lang pina-find myself. Ngayon ko lang iniisip kung anong gusto ko para sa buhay ko. Ito yung quarter life crisis, yung may marami kang tanong.”

As it is, living such a sheltered life also makes her wonder what it’s like to be responsible for her own decisions. “Kailangan na. 25 years old na po ako. Kailangan maging independent,” she beamed.

Sarah and Anne are SMDC Sisters


One of the country’s largest property developers, SM Development Corporation (SMDC), announced just last month that they chose Popstar Princess Sarah Geronimo to be one of their brand ambassadors alongside their long-time endorser Anne Curtis.

According to SMDC, while Anne targets the A,B, and C market, they would love to have Sarah’s “girl-next-door” appeal to tap on the mass market.

"We are proud to have two of the country's most popular, loveliest, and most sought-after brand ambassadors to represent our brand. Anne Curtis and Sarah Geronimo. Five Stars!"

Anne even welcomed Sarah on the day that SMDC announced the singer’s new involvement with the huge company. “Welcome to the SMDC Family my favorite popstar @JustSarahG  Viva and SMDC sisters!” Anne tweeted.

It seems like we’ll be seeing more of Anne and Sarah on TVCs, billboards, buses, and other advertising media real soon!
