  • Viral entry to the “President Nadine Lustre” meme, first made the rounds in 2017

“President” is a nickname given by the fans to the FAMAS Best Actress awardee, Nadine Lustre.

The nickname was brought up by a Twitter meme since 2016. It’s unclear how the meme started although tweets proclaiming Nadine as “President” have gone viral as a running joke of Nadine’s fans.

It seems that her fans truly admire her advocacy as an artist and look up to her as a role model.

Here are some of the hilarious tweets referring to Nadine as “President:”

The running joke is a witty and creative way of showing how her fans loved and supported her. But is Nadine aware of this?

“Super aware po ako diyan. Kahit in person, President ang tawag nila sa akin,” Nadine laughingly said in her recent interview at the Viva office.

The multimedia princess said that she gets inspired in being called “President” by her fans.

“Honestly po, it’s just really nice to be someone a lot of people look up to and na ako ‘yong inspiration nila and parang they look up to me as someone who’s strong and very empowered,” she said.

“It’s inspiring also since sa beginning naman po no’ng pumasok ako sa showbiz, ‘yon naman po talaga ‘yong gusto kong gawin, I want everyone to, you know, to just strive and reach for their dreams and all that.”

She also added that she wants to be a good influence to her fans as she advocates mental health.

Ang pinagdaanan ko po kasi, I was very insecure when I was younger and I was looking for someone, a role model to look up to, na parang to show me na you know, it’s gonna be a good day, you’re gonna have better days, and it’s okay na you have this now, you’re gonna get over it, ‘yong ganon. Wala po kasi akong naging role model when I was younger so ‘yon po, wish ko magkaroon. But now, I’m just really happy na ako ‘yon para sa karamihan ng mas bata sa akin,” she revealed.

Nadine starred in the movie ‘Ulan’ with Carlo Aquino that was directed by Irene Villamor. Just recently, she also won as  a Best Actress nominee for the 42nd Gawad Urian Awards.
