He recently publicized his advice for Phenomenal Star.
Paolo confessed that he understands why Maine feels that way in showbiz. He also added that the popularity which comes with the AlDub love team had changed her life.
“Parang lahat ng gawin niya, lahat ng tao, may masasabi. Okay lang na may masabi or ma-comment, kaya lang, ‘yung mga taong pumupuna sa kanya, kung baga, inuutusan na rin siya, dinidirekta na rin siya, so I guess, nakakapagood din ‘yung ganun.”
