AlDub in concert

No touch. Alden and Yaya Dun in their second meeting

Eat Bulaga is indeed striking the iron while it’s hot. To appreciate the massive support AlDub is getting, the super tandem is set to record a song and hold a concert for their millions of fans. Will they be able to set a new record on the music scene? Will that concert spark another social media frenzy? That’s what we’re going to find out soon.


Cyrus Villanueva

Another singer with Filipino lineage is making waves in Australia’s X Factor. The 19-year-old student from South Sydney, who can play multiple musical instruments by the way, is one of the strongest contestants in the hit talent show. If he wins, Cyrus will be the second Filipino to clinch the X Factor title after Marlisa Punzalan ended victor last year.


Arci Muñoz

The sultry actress has been chosen to be the calendar girl of a popular liquor brand. And to be chosen as one, people say the brand must have seen something extra ordinary about her. Sure, Arci is more than just killer curves and beautiful face. The Pasion de Amor star is a Fine Arts graduate at University of the Philippines. Beauty and brains no doubt.


...are NOT talking about


Vice Ganda

He’s intelligent enough to know that most of the powerful messages affect people when sent out in a subtle way. Hence, his “stealing a kiss from Karylle” (not once, but twice) during It’ Showtime anniversary concert is viewed by the audience as his poor attempt to make people talk about him again. He knows that hard selling is not the way to go but he still went that route. Poor desperate thing.


Joey de Leon

He’s fortunate that AlDub is untouchable because of its millions of fervent fans. But that doesn’t give him the license to discount other people’s opinion about AlDub, whether positive or not. Case in point, he put Lea Salonga in the center of controversy after the singer shared her thoughts about the attention the likes of AlDud is getting. And Joey thought AlDub fans would devour Lea alive online. Guess what? That didn’t happen. 


JM de Guzman

The embattled actor has sent a shout out to Enrique Gil challenging the latter in fisticuffs a la MMA (mixed martial arts). The recently sober former stage actor, who has lost another project to Jericho Rosales, told the Forevermore star to man up and take up on the challenge. This really happens when a person’s mind isn’t wired like most normal people do.
