Gerald Santos in I Luv New York
Gerald Santos in I Luv New York
So I watched the world-premiere of Crazy For You — it’s just like I Luv New York except it’s in Barcelona, Spain. And the brother left behind in the Philippines is played by Joseph Bitangcol (what a name) instead of Gerald Santos.
It was actually bearable to watch, except for the false advertsing involving the Globe video phone. Magkano kaya to have a video call from Manila to Barcelona? Is it even possible? Anyway, mukhang fantasy-drama ang Crazy for You because at the end of the premiere there was a Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon moment. Really? Also, for the record, I hate Lucky Manzano. If you watch him for just a couple of minutes, talagang nakakainis pala talaga siya. It’s like reverse-charisma.
I am going to watch this for a while since its supposed to have Aldred Gatchalian… eventually. Go go Aldred!
Or at the very least stop doing what he is currently doing now on ASAP. The problem with Gary V. is that he has not evolved as an artist at all, and he is still singing and dancing 80s music. Also, you cannot age well with the type of musical style he excels in. The best description for Gary V. is that he is a 42-year-old solo boy-band artist with 3 teenage kids. It just doesn’t work.
After watching his solo number on ASAP, I thought: this may have worked 20 years ago, and I would have gladly throw in my underwear on stage along with the underwear of countless screaming teenage girls — but today, he looks like he’s trapped in a time machine, and sadly cannot get out.
In a way, I feel bad since obviously he needs the money to sustain his family, but he could have probably reinvented himself somehow, so he doesn’t look ridiculous every week on TV. I don’t know just how many fans Gary V. has, but clearly he is not going to get young fans. If he’s after the young fans like he did 20 years ago, then he’s just sick. Pandering to 16-year-old girls when you are 42 is just sick. Who’s his target audience anyway?
There’s a short lifespan for the solo singing-dancing male artist — once your teenage fans grow up, you have to adjust. There’s nothing to be proud of that he’s lasted this long — it just means he’s overstayed and refuses to leave. Sinasabayan ba niya si Madonna for some reason?
Armarie, Jelli, Apple and Pow are in the Top 12 — ick, no Ira.
Only 10 singers will be asked to sing in the wildcard next weekend. Announcement tomorrow of who it will be.
2 more boys and 2 more girls will join the Top 12 this weekend. Good luck!
Finally a straight-up OPM number. Gerald Santos:
What ill-advised production number is this? Also: The wonders of Photoshop. Kung ganoon kaganda ang katawan nina Mark at Patrick bakit hindi sila nag-shirtless katulad ni Polo?
Mukhang maganda ang Bakekang. I think I’m going to watch! Marky Cielo gets another primetime show. Yasmien Kurdi too. Magiging loveteam sina Marky Cielo at Yasmien Kurdi! Paano na si Buboi?
Also, Victor Neri is now in GMA. Good for him — after ABS-CBN humiliated him in Panday, I’m glad he’s still able to find work. So what’s this? Sunshine Dizon will be in two primetime shows at once?
