- Yeng Constantino recently faced the press and answered questions about Morissette Amon’s walk-out issue
- The singer revealed that Morissette is a very kind person despite the issues she was involved in
- Yeng stars her first-ever mainstream movie Write About Love
Singer-songwriter Yeng Constantino was recently interviewed by the entertainment press for her very first mainstream movie Write About Love which will premiere on December 25.
Being hesitant at first, Yeng eventually revealed about her opinion regarding the issues involving her fellow Kapamilya singer Morissette Amon. Morissette recently gained attention after she walked out of a concert where she was supposed to be a special guest last month.
Asked if she experienced a similar thing in the past, Yeng then answered, “Truth. Halimbawa ‘pag may sakit talaga, wala talaga, hindi talaga kaya. Kakausapin ko naman ang management.”
On how she would deal with such an issue, she added, “Umiiwas po talaga ako for a while. Siyempre po tao po tayo nakakaramdam ng sakit. Ganun po talaga iba-iba ang mga responses ng mga tao. Ang mahalaga naman po yung kapayapaan sa puso mo.”
It was also rumored that other singers are now getting more offers than Morissette as an effect of her walkout. When asked about this, Yeng implied that this was a surprise to her.
“Wala po akong awareness na ganun. Kami pong mga artists pag may nalalaman kaming mga balita mas more on concern kami sa co-artists niyan. Talagang meron po kaming isang thread na group, talagang kumustahan. Mas ang ano po namin is maging okay.”
Yeng said they would rather support Morissette and other artists going through problems.
“Opo kasi isang industriya lang kami.Wala naman pong magkakaintindihan kundi kami-kami lamang. Kung kami po yung magkakawatak-watak pa at gawin po namin na kumpetisyon ang isa’t isa. Parang bad vibes po. Nasa iisang dressing room lang po kami,” Yeng shared.
Yeng testified that Asia’s Phoenix is a very good person.
“May mga pagkakataon po talaga na baka po meron talagang pinagdadaanan ang isang tao pero kilala ko po si Mori na napakbait po talaga. Mabait po,sobrang mabait po talaga” she repeatedly said.
Meanwhile, Yeng has expressed her excitement for her first mainstream movie, Write About Love, which is also her first MMFF film entry.
“Hugot po na drama, comedy, poot. Very story po ng mga Pilipino, mga kinakahiligan po talaga ng lahat, drama tsaka kilig ganyan po.
“Ako po dito si Joyce para po sa story na sinusulat ng ating main character, si Miles (Ocampo) at si Rocco (Nacino). Kami po ni Joem (Bascon) magka-partner rito and yun po. Kakaiba siya parang two layers yung story so they’re writing our story.”
Did she felt intimidated by the other films included in the MMFF 2019 entries?
“Opo, nakita po namin yung ibang mga entries. Ako po personally tinignan ko ulit sabi ko uy, sana meron kaming ma-bag na award. Mabigat po talaga yung mga kalaban pero still pinagdadasal po natin yan kasi if kalooban po ng Panginoon, mangyayari naman,” she said.
In July of this year, Yeng was criticized by netizens after her “doctor-shaming” on social media. In a deleted YouTube vlog, it narrated her interactions with the doctor, whom she accused of having no sense of urgency and concern for her husband’s “traumatic” experience in a Siargao hospital.
