Sorry tao lang…Mahirap pag sikat…If I may add from Ms. Chuvaness\’ opening remark.
I\’ve read from Chuvaness\’ blogpost about Ricky Lo\’s interview with Anne Hathaway. iCringe and facepalmed several times. I\’ve seen and watched (but never able to finish) interviews done by Ricky Lo because it\’s just plain boring REALLY! I find it humiliating for him as he was verbally bitched-slapped by the former princess from Genovia.
I just wish Philippine Star didn\’t show it all. He didn\’t give much thought on his questions. He also looks nervous because he keeps on stuttering. I think it was just OK to mention about Lea Salonga but the interview has somehow led to indirectly comparing the two. And the SMS part, I hope it was shown off cam though I think Hathaway was sincere on being thankful from receiving a compliment from Lea Salonga. After that, I think it went downhill from there that her to refuse answering some questions. Idinaan na lang ni Ricky Lo sa pagtawa because I think he can already feel the tension. Naawa din ako sa kanya wala namang gustong mapahiya ng ganon.
From Anne Hathaway\’s part, I thought her handlers should\’ve primed interviewers on what questions are allowed or maybe check them. She smiled during the interview but she just snapped at the last part…Tsk tsk good thing a smile can do some damage-control.
I don\’t think this has something to do with Lo\’s accent. Hello!!! All of us has accents! Most of the time foreigners understands kahit English carabao. They won\’t mind it all. Tayo lang naman ang may issue pagdating sa pagsasalita ng Ingles.
I recommend that this kind of interview should also be given to the younger generation of hosts or writers(?) and hopefully veer away from Pinoy showbiz question. And this doesn\’t exempt Raymond Gutierrez. Ok na sana but he asked Adam Levine a cringe-worthy question at unang-una pa! I just hope hindi na maulit.
I just hope this won\’t happen again. I need to blog this because I can\’t get it off my head. I\’m keeping my fingers crossed.
