Alden has become immune to criticisms

Another dance craze has been making people across the globe “get down, down” as a slew of videos from netizens bombards our social media platforms with their various takes on the #KoKoBopChallenge, which is inspired by the latest hit track of the Korean all-male group EXO, “Ko Ko Bop.”

Vice Ganda, who is a known follower of K-pop, has brought it to the noontime show “It’s Showtime” and has done it thrice already with co-hosts Anne Curtis, Vhong Navarro, and Nadine Lustre.

And this caught the attention of Korean viral news site Koreaboo, which in a post on August 9, recognized the stature of Vice as a Filipino star and a famous comedian and TV host. Koreaboo said Vice brought the new craze to local TV and would really make the EXO tune more popular in the Philippines.

Dancing to “Ko Ko Bop” as he exchanges banter with his co-hosts during the show’s “Tawag ng Tanghalan” segment, Vice surely made audiences appreciate the dance craze and encouraged them to do their own versions of the challenge.

The challenge reportedly took off after an EXO fan named Resey dared her YouTube followers to do it and since went viral, with school kids, teenagers, office workers doing their own versions.

As one of the country’s most recognizable faces, Alden Richards said he thinks it’s important to give back to the community. Last August 9, he surprised selected female street sweepers and traffic enforcers. “Importante (ang giving back). It’s my whole purpose as an actor, as an artist. Giving back walang second thought diyan eh. You always have to give back to people kasi sila yung nagdadala sa ‘yo kung nasaan ka ngayon and of course what more can you do for them then give a little, not a little nga dapat kung ano yung na-ri-receive mo ‘yun din ‘yung binibigay. Kasi bumabalik talaga siya,” he shared.

Alden admitted he is also involved in several other charities. “Yes, meron pero I decided not to name them na lang kasi I really help undercover. I don’t make it public kasi walang sincerity sa public charity service. ‘Yung iba ginagamit ‘yung pagbibigay sa charity to gain some comments or feedback from other people. I don’t do that,” he explained.

Just like any celebrity, he admitted he is used to being hit with all kinds of intrigues, but he chooses not to give them any importance. “Hindi ko na po ramdam kasi parang I have so much on my hands right now. Wala na akong time intindihin ‘yung mga on the side issues na ‘yan para sagutin or whatever and hindi ko rin papansinin ‘yan kasi alam naman ng mga tao sa paligid ko kung ano ‘yung totoo and kumbaga, may mga issues na napapabayaan na gawa-gawa lang and then later on pinapaniwalaaan na ng publiko. So it’s really based on the people’s discernment na lang kung saan sila maniniwala,” he explained.

As one of the most followed personalities on social media today, he shared his secret to not being affected by harsh comments from critics. “Personally kasi hindi talaga ako mapagbasa ng comments on social media. Bihirang bihira kasi, like ang tinitingnan ko sa Instagram pictures of family, pictures of friends, mga kasama ko sa showbiz, relo, sasakyan, ganyan. Tapos pagdating naman sa Facebook, mga videos. That’s how I see social media. Tinitingnan ko na lang ‘yung good side of it. Kasi kung titingnan ang masamang side, medyo marami siya. Especially we’re public figures. Sa public figures malaki angdownside ng social media because of the people ang daming comments, ang dami nilang gustong gawin, ang dami nilang gustong ipagawa, gusto nila i-direct ‘yung buhay mo kung saan dapat papunta. So ‘yun ‘yung iniiwasan ko kasi medyo stressful ‘yun...,” he said.

Billy Crawford is hosting the upcoming kiddie talent-talk show “Little Big Shots,” which   started airing  August 12) and  August 13  on ABS-CBN.

According to the singer-host, he too was surprised that he was chosen by Warner Bros after auditioning to host the local version of the show.

He revealed that he auditioned for the show solo. He even shared that he only learned that Ogie Alcasid also auditioned for the same spot later on.


“Hindi namin alam na pareho kaming nag-audition, to be honest. Nung sinabi lang sa akin, ‘Mag-audition ka. May bagong programa,’” he shared.

He continued, “I think one day ahead si Kuya Ogie. Oo, nauna si Kuya Ogie.”

In the end, the “It’s Showtime” host emphasized that he has nothing but respect for the seasoned singer-songwriter.

“Wala akong masabi kay Kuya Ogie. Sobrang humble, sobrang bait ni Kuya Ogie. Kasi nung in-announce na nila sa akin na napunta sa akin yung programa, ang unang nag-text sa akin, si Kuya Ogie,” he revealed in an interview during the show’s special media screening.

“Sabi niya, ‘Bro, I’m happy for you. I’m so proud of you. I will always be right here behind you anytime you need me,” he continued.

 “Si Kuya Ogie, simula bata pa lang ako, kilala ko na si Kuya Ogie. It’s nothing about competition talaga... I’m still shocked na napunta nga sa akin. Pero wala akong masabi kay Kuya Ogie,” he ended.
