Stars sing for Mother Earth

On the eve of Earth Day celebration pop artists Christian BautistaZia QuizonJurisJed Madela and Kyla performed at the Evoliving Center Dockside at the eco-city Nuvali in Sta. Rosa Laguna.

These music stars united in an evening of music and entertainment to honor Mother Earth through their songs that tell how beautiful the world is and what we can do protect and preserve it.

Called Green Freedom Concert, the music event served as the highlight of a two-day celebration that kicked off with a green market and capped by a fun run and a bike race.


Christian, Zia, Juris, Jed and Kyla jumped up and down the stage singing their own hits and performing a couple of covers. Christian, in particular, elevated the crowed when he performed songs popularized by U2 and Michael Jackson. But the real darling of the crowd was Dolphy and ZsaZsa Padilla’s youngest daughter. The 19-year-old singer received nothing but applauses when she sang ’70s hits and her own record “Ako Na Lang.”

After the hour-long concert, the singers went backstage and readied for a couple of interview with the press. At the same time, they were also asked to do autograph signing to meet their eager fans. From what we have observed, Christian and Zia were the performers who had to stay longer because their fans queued in a long line, or probably, they are the only singers present that night who had their latest CDs up for sale.

It’s easy to assume that the biggest stars of that night were the Christian and Zia. In fact, several bodyguards had to form a human cordon so the latter could leave the venue.

Christian on love and career

People can’t have the best of both worlds but it seems that this cliché does not work for pop sensation Christian Bautista. The 30-year-old crooner has a successful musical career, after a string of platinum records he has just recently launched a new album that will be released in Asia, at the same time he has a blooming love life.

In an interview with the Standard Today, Christian admitted that he feels fortunate for finally finding a new inspiration through his new girlfriend, Singapore-based actress Carla Dunareanu.

“We’ve been together for two months now, we became officially together on Valentine’s Day and so far we are doing great,” admitted Christian who has already introduced Carla to his family.

The two met each other on the set of the Pan-Asian TV series The Kitchen Musical where Christian plays one of the main characters and Carla a recurring role.

Breaking up is hard to do

Guess who needed space and called it quits? These famous celebrities are singles once more, or are they really?

After weeks of speculations, longtime couple Derek Ramsay and Angelica Panganiban shocked their fans when the actor confirmed that they have decided to give each other’s space and time to think about their own personal life in the moment (read cool off). Incidentally, we also have another controversial couple John Lloyd Cruz and Shaina Magdayao that decided to part ways. Coincidence? Your wild guess is as good as ours.

We heard on the grapevine that these celebrity split-ups are no coincidence at all. Rumors have that Derek has been seeing someone else and the reason why Shaina broke up with John Lloyd is because the actor is having an affair with Angelica.

Although these stories sound more of a movie plot for the next Star Cinema movie, they will just remain as hearsays until the involved parties divulge the real reason of their breakup, which in the realm of showbiz, is unlikely to happen.

Derek Ramsay and Angelica Panganiban in their happier time

In our previous interview with Derek, the now Kapatid contract star said that their secret to strong relationship is that they let each other grow and their relationship does not always rely on what people think of them as a couple. It is more of on how they can keep the romantic fires burning even after years of being together.  So what went wrong? Have they decided to grow someone else’s arms?

Cheap brawl

Actor Raymart Santiago and television host Mon Tulfo had an episode which appeared to be a continuation of the tough bout between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Miguel Cotto. They happened on the same day only the latter happened in a legitimate boxing ring while the first scandalously occurred at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport.

According to ABS-CBN News on May 6, Tulfo saw Claudine Barreto going ballistic over her missing baggage. The couple arrived at the NAIA3 after a vacation in Boracay and Claudine was reportedly pissed-off and started scolding and cursing a Cebu Pacific staff. Because of his instinct as a reporter, Mon Tulfo, who came from Davao on the other hand, grabbed his phone and started recording the incident. Raymart approached the TV host and columnist and before anyone could blink their eyes, a fistfight started, which according to reports, also involved Claudine and the couple’s entourage.

On that same day, the couple appeared on Showbiz Central for an interview so the couple could give their side of the story. The interview, which showed the couple in the same clothes they were wearing when they arrived at the airport belied all the other reports which are untoward to them. They said Mon started the fight.

Mon’s version is different, of course. He said Raymart wanted to take his cellphone that he used in taking pictures of Claudine shouting at an airport staff.

Meanwhile, there’s a video that is now widely circulated on the Internet. Judge for yourself.
