But now that our eyes are opened to the process we see a number of people probably inspired by the said pop star that’s why they can’t come to the phone anymore. Let’s look at what they did!

But due to some unforeseen circumstances, Bondoc’s appointment did not push through. He’s still a staunch supporter of the President, shedding his former balladeer image and transforming into one of the government’s mouthpiece. Iba ka na Jimmy!
The old Jolina Magdangal

That’s not all, she also inspired Lady Gaga to be Lady Gaga! She’s definitely more than just a pretty face, she slays!
The old Bearwin Meily

After strict workout sessions and just the sheer powerful will to change his lifestyle, he became the fit and chiseled guy every gym enthusiast out there would envy.
The old JaDine
When the love team of James Reid and Nadine Lustre, collectively known as Jadine, was born, they went through all the other phases young artists undergo to achieve fame. They were actors, dancers, and then ultimately, like every other artist out there, they were singers. With pop Tagalog tracks like “Hanap-hanap” and “Bahala Na,” the duo indeed rose to fame and gained a huge following. But as they matured they maybe have realized how corny that phase was and did away with it. The pair has since traveled to many countries and curated their Instagram feeds to look enviable. James Reid now has a full-length album out on Spotify entitled Palm Dreams where he explores the techno and electric pop side of music, proving that Filipinos certainly can do great in the music industry.
