Rock … and raw!
It was epic when Filipino rock stars, Bamboo and Ely Buendia, shared the stage for the country’s first-ever “silent concert,” dubbed “MDRLive: Music Deserves Respect” on May 8 at Rockwell Tent. Even the glass-enclosed stage could not diminish the raw power of these rockers.
Through our (MDR Sony) headphones, we could hear the roar of the crowd, but soon it was replaced by the rousing music of the opening act, Jay Durias.
A few minutes later, Bamboo took the stage. He dished out mellow tracks from his album, “No Water, No Moon,” before belting out “Hallelujah.”
The crowd was already revved up when Ely’s turn came. He went straight to the hits, starting with Eraserheads’ “Alapaap.” Each song became special—as if we were hearing “Ang Huling El Bimbo,” “Magasin” and “Ligaya” for the first time.
Giving in to the audience, Bamboo and Ely emerged from the glass enclosure for the encore: The Beatles anthem “Come Together.”
It took the concert experience to a whole new level, as if we witnessed the most intimate of recording sessions. Rock and raw!
There could be no better endorser for the country’s leading dermatological and aesthetic clinic Belo Medical Group’s (BMG) summer campaign than Marian Rivera.
Even if she was born beautiful, Marian has to be conscious about her looks to stay on top.
Her fave BMG procedures are laser hair removal and Venus Freeze.
If only she could lend her body to us even for a day … but since that’s wishful thinking, we asked her for beauty tips instead.
“Being sexy is more than physical. What’s important is how you take care of yourself,” she explained. “Even if you don’t have a perfect figure, as long as you are well-groomed and have self-confidence and a good sense of humor … those traits are more than enough to make you feel sexy.”
How does her boyfriend, Dingdong Dantes, make her feel even sexier? “Every day, he makes me feel how important I am to him,” she said. “In return, I make sure I always look and do my best for him. He is so sweet. He never fails to put a smile on my face.”
(Be)LO and behold Marian’s smile! What else could be sexier than the curve on her lips to match the curves of her bod?
Rufa Mae “Pchi” Quinto is relieved that the cyst in her breast is gone.
“At first, I ignored the pain. I thought it was just due to the heaviness of my Hermes bag,” Pchi said in jest. “’Yun pala may cyst. Others mistook my post on Instagram (IG) and thought I had an implant removed. Hilo pa kasi ako after the operation kaya mali-mali ang grammar ko sa IG.”
Her experience should serve as a wake-up call. “We should have a mammogram once a year. I’m happy to be cyst-free.”
The blossoming of the bosom à la Pchi. The B(r)E(a)ST is yet to come!
In spite of the scandals, Anne Curtis’ fame seems directly proportional to the intrigues that come her way.
She is raring to rock Araneta Coliseum once again via Viva Live’s “The Forbidden Concert: AnneKapal” on May 16. (For tickets, call 9115555.)
Her first concert, “Annebisyosa” turned out to be a monster hit. Anne may not be able to carry a tune, but “carry na carry niya” to stage a glitzy show. Anne taught us to look life straight in the eye and dress stylishly for the part.
Belated Happy Birthday to one of my coolest friends, PLDT’s bright boy, Gary Dujali!
