People ...are talking about


Maine Mendoza

Yaya Dub has a shampoo endorsement, too.

In a short span of time, two months to be exact, the country’s Dubsmash Queen was catapulted to stardom. Thanks to her one million Twitter followers, three product endorsements and a film project in the offing. And in the recent development on AlDub’s Twitter domination, Guinness Book of World Records is looking into giving AlDub the “Fastest Rising Worldwide Trend” award after the 12.1 million tweets posted on Twitter last Saturday. 


Nadine Lustre

Nadine Lustre

The On the Wings of Love star is joining her onscreen partner James Reid in vying for the Best Southeast Asian Act in this year’s MTV Europe Music Awards. If you haven’t noticed, Nadine steps up her game by making herself known also as individual artist and not just as the other half of JaDine. Hence, when love teams no longer click, she still has a fallback. 


Heneral Luna

John Arcilla in Heneral Luna

The Academy Awards’ foreign language film category nomination has been elusive to locally made films. But will the Philippines finally get nominated and ultimately snatch the Oscar trophy for Best Foreign Language Film section in the prestigious film event? Have we finally got the formula that the international audience and critics are looking for? Ploning, Bwakaw and Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank all failed but Heneral Luna, with its universal theme, is more than ready to take on the challenge.


...are NOT talking about


Pastillas Girl

Pastillas Girl

It’s Showtime’s answer to AlDub fever faces more criticism than admiration. Even loyal followers of the noontime show find Pastillas Girl and the Twitterserye a desperate attempt to find something to topple the super tandem. Rather than creating another television love team, why not focus on what It’s Showtime is known for? Least they forget, It’s Showtime became a big threat to Eat Bulaga for its more entertaining segments.


Felix Manalo

Dennis Trillo as Felix Manalo

Will the general public take time to see the biographical film dramatizing the life of Iglesia Ni Cristo’s founder? That’s the big question. But regardless of the answer, the film will make it big at the box office. Imagine, every single member of the religious group is required to see the biopic of their former leader, especially on its first day of commercial release. Probably, non-member would see the movie not because of the story but only because of Dennis Trillo.


Kathryn Bernardo

Kathryn Bernardo

So, she’s the former Going Bulilit cast member that the veteran director was referring to as the only one who didn’t greet him at the Star Magic Ball. Expect that her fans would react and defend their idol no matter what the turns of event would be. Anyway, in this [un]intentional incident, we’re perfectly sure who gets the bad publicity.
