Aside from being holiday and party season, December is also Celeb Month on Cosmo! That's why it's during this time that we do this exclusive, special feature: A Day In The Life Of Your Fave Celeb! Last year, we gave you a peek at a day in the life of Jon Avila and a few days later, we kicked off 2011 with a day in the life of Jose Sarasola. This time, we got one of today’s hottest young female celebrities, Megan Young, to show us what a typical day in her life is like.
Megan recently made waves on the big screen as Melissa, the scheming girlfriend of Andrew (played by Gerald Anderson) in Won’t Last A Day Without You (which stars our December cover girl Sarah Geronimo). When you see her on TV or in event photos, she's more often than not glammed up and fabulous. But, in person, Megan proved to be just a regular sweet and jolly 21-year-old girl; it just so happens she's in the spotlight a lot of the time.
The Channel V VJ started off in showbiz by joining GMA-7's talent search Starstruck in 2004. A couple of years later, she joined ABS-CBN’s Pinoy Big Brother: Celebrity Edition 2, which was followed by acting stints on primetime series like I Love Betty La Fea and Rubi. On top of her busy showbiz and hosting schedules, she manages to make time for her studies: She's a Digital Film-Making sophomore at De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. "It’s pretty tough, but you know, it’s what I love doing, so I can manage," she says.
Megan let us get a peek at a regular day in her life recently. We met her on a Saturday at 8:30AM at the Ynares Center in Antipolo for Showtime’s Grand Finals, where she was one of the hurados. Megan was so hyper that she kept the Cosmo team entertained the entire time. It's not like there was any reason to be bored, though: It was a star-studded show! Megan shared the dressing room with the rest of the celeb guests. She actually stood out, because amidst the fancy dresses and glam outfits worn by these celebrities, Megan kept her look simple and classy with a black tank top, jeans, and pumps. She let her hot red lips take care of vamping her up (and how!).
The Showtime Grand Finals ended pretty late. We were supposed to head to Megan’s house after the show before going to an event at 4PM, but instead, Megan found herself rushing to make it to the event in SM Makati in time! To avoid the horrible traffic from Antipolo to Makati, Megan decided to ride the MRT! She got down at the Ayala station then headed straight to the Purr by Katy Perry event, where she saw other celebrity friends. We said goodbye to Megan after that event since she had to meet a friend (in private, of course) for dinner--she hasn’t eaten all day!
Before you launch the gallery to see snapshots of a day in Megan's life, read our interview with her to find out how Megan spends her day when she’s not working. Watch for the video coverage next week!
How do you usually spend your day?
If I don’t have taping or if I don’t have work, unang-una niyan, kain. Siyempre kain (laughs). I can't start my day without eating at home. I usually make a meal at home kasi mas tipid and I can make whatever I want without the hassle of going out. It saves time, saves money. And then usually, after that, I wait an hour or so, and then I go to the gym and work out for like two hours or so. And sometimes, in between days that I don’t have work, I do my schoolwork. Very schoolgirl ang effect ko. If my friends are free from work or whatever, I go and hang out with them.
Where do you usually hang out?
Usually I hang out around Tomas Morato 'cause it’s near my house, I can just walk there whenever. If I’m in Taft, I go to like Noriter or I buy milk tea along the way going to SDA (building). So it’s pretty easy naman, simple things lang, hindi naman ako maarte.
Do you like hanging out at malls?
Not naman all the time. Like if I need something, as I said may pagka-kuripot nga ako, so I go shopping once every four months.
What’s your fashion style?
Very simple, I like to go as simple as possible. Pero nadadala naman 'yun, so okay lang.
