What Matteo finds hard to understand about women
When Matteo Guidicelli’s heart is in it, the sky’s the limit. He pursues his passions relentlessly, whether on the race track, on camera, or on the concert stage. The Kapamilya heartthrob is all revved up for his concert, “Hey Matteo,” at the Kia Theatre on Nov. 30 at 7:30 p.m. It is a followup to his sold-out concert in Cebu last year.
Not too many people know that Matteo has been into musical theater. Back in school, he played the lead role in the musical, “Pippin.” He also took a course in Musical Theater in Columbia College.
The singer-actor is hands-on with the preparations for his concert. He will be performing covers inspired by the music that he grew up with and original songs from his soon-to-be-released second album. So, get ready to swoon over Matteo and be giddy(celli).
As for his love life, Matteo politely declined to answer any questions about Sarah Geronimo because he’d like to keep their relationship low-key lest it goes off-key.
My chat with Matteo:
What kind of fulfillment do you get from singing, compared to acting and racing? Singing is freedom, honesty and telling your story. While acting is getting into a character and relating it to yourself. Racing taught me determination.
If you had to choose just one, which would you pick and why? Singing, because I have the most fun doing it.
What do you find hard to understand about women? Women in general are hard to understand. Their quirks and moods. But men can’t live without them. They complete a man’s life.
What’s your most embarrassing moment to date? When I was the only one in class who failed the math test in middle school.
What’s the cheesiest thing you’ve done? I love saying “I love you.”
What’s on your bucket list? To travel the world, and motorbike around the Philippines, United States and Europe. To be a part of change in Cebu … by solving its traffic, flooding and garbage problems.
What’s your song for yourself these days? It’s an original song included in my new album, “10,000th Day.” It’s about creating change and being yourself.
Did you ever want to take a break, like John Lloyd Cruz? It’s important to find balance. Especially when I do a movie or a soap, I get burned out. I take a break, physically and mentally.
If you could travel back in time, what would you do differently? I would take piano lessons seriously.
If your life story were a movie, what would the title be? “All or Nothing.” I want Enrique Gil to portray me, but he must work out and get some abs first (laughs).
