People…are talking about: John Lloyd Cruz

John Lloyd Cruz

There have been ugly talks surrounding the viral videos featuring the Kapamilya actor and they are not showing any signs of dying down, at least in the next couple of days. It’s just really hard to understand why some people call the videos disturbing. Don’t we all get drunk and act the same way or even worse? First of all, Lloydie is neither a teenager nor a saint. He’s a human being who gets drunk and acts foolishly when under the influence of alcohol just like anybody else. The problem in this society, a lot of hypocrites hide behind their computers and mobile devices and pretend to be decent.  Continue reading

No Nickelodeon blimp for Daniel Padilla

Teen star Daniel Padilla was among the nominees in this year’s Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards (KCA).

The 19-year-old actor was nominated in the Favorite Asian Act category, along with Indonesian girl group JKT48, Malaysian YouTube sensation Jinnyboy, and Singaporean actor Tosh Zhang.

Daniel Padilla fails to win a Nickelodeon’s orange blimp

At the end of the glitzy and slimy 28th edition of KCA held at the Forum in Inglewood, California, Daniel failed to win the coveted orange blimp. The award was won by the Jakarta-based girl group who happened to have a bigger fan base.

Fans of the young actor took it to social media to air their sentiments over the result. Some even went overboard expressing how infuriated they were that their idol did not win the coveted blimp. To appease his ardent fans, Daniel and his mother Karla Estrada told them that being nominated in Nickelodeon KCA is already an achievement in itself.

For consolation, the teen actor won the “Global Slime Star” award after beating out British boy band Union J, Mexican boy band CD9, Brazilian singer-composer Luan Santana and teenage YouTube Jamie Curry who represented Australia and New Zealand.

The competition, which was conducted by Nickelodeon for the first time, was held on Twitter where each nominee has his or her own respective hashtag. In Daniel’s case it was #SlimeDanielKCA. Daniel’s Twitter fans tweeted the hashtag many times over making the young actor win the competition and get slimed in the end. The winner was announced a day before the Nick Awards but no blimp was handed out to the “teen king.”

The Favorite Asian Act plum is an elusive award for Filipino artists. Anne Curtis and Sarah Geronimo also failed to win the same award in 2014 and 2013, respectively.  In 2012, Charice Pempengco became the first Filipino to get nominated and eventually won the award. Charice took home the famous orange blimp when she was still a hot YouTube sensation touring the world to promote her music. Sure, Charice’s fans knew exactly how to cast their votes online. It is something that Daniel’s fans are yet to discover.

After being dubbed “The Most Talented Girl in the World,” openly gay and former Glee star Charice Pempengco has earned yet another international distinction, this time for her stint as a judge on “The X Factor Philippines.” Continue reading
