Is Julie Anne ready to replace Maine as Alden’s new partner?
“Ay naku! Ano unbeatable po sila. I don’t think na may kailangan po akong palitan kasi ang lakas po ni Alden tsaka ni Maine together. And for me wala po akong laban and I totally respect that. Wala pong kaso sa akin yun. Wala po akong kailangang i-fill in. Basta focused po ako like as a solo performer, solo artist.”
