I have explained myself many times but will explain again. The video did not capture the time I acknowledged the fans---— Julia Barretto (@BarrettoJulia) September 10, 2015
The last thing I want to happen is for my fans to think I am not grateful for them. I am not going to allow a 15 second video to define me.— Julia Barretto (@BarrettoJulia) September 10, 2015
3 Gab Valenciano revealed on Facebook that the reason he left the country three years ago was that the entertainment industry made him feel like "one of the most worthless artists in the history of artists."
He further detailed how local showbiz “mocks the very core of what it means to be an artist,” saying, “[It is] a system that sincerely believes that being light-skinned is a privilege. That talent is nothing but a bonus accessory. That looking good is a much greater necessity than actually being good. That hard work doesn't get you anywhere, it's who you know and how far you're willing to go to live the dream. That the destination is much more relevant than the journey. That your self-worth is based on the number of followers you have. That your every asset is fixated on branding and advertising. That being amazing gets you hits, but doesn't provide you with a life you deserve. That it is okay for corporations to believe in a quantity over quality business model over excellence. That desiring to actually love what you do comes with a hefty price tag.” To read Gab’s full Facebook post, click here. (ABS-CBN)
