Jake Zyrus reacted to his inclusion in Vice Ganda’s online concert and the cancellation of the Ellen DeGeneres show.
In a press conference for the music video release of his single, Fix Me, Zyrus considered the inclusion as an honor.
“I didn’t know na talagang ano pala, he’s eyeing me, but it would be an honor.”
He also added, “I think that would be very iconic, Pride Month is about to happen, and I think it would be very inspirational.”
As for his reaction to the cancellation of the Ellen DeGeneres show, Zyrus said, “Mixed emotions. I’ve seen the issues, and obviously, I’ve never known her like that, so hindi ko alam kung anong paniniwalaan ko.”
He also said that DeGeneres was supportive and kind to him when he guested in the daytime talk show.
“But what I know is when I was on her show, she was very nice, she was very kind to me, and she was very supportive. And obviously, napakalaki nung tulong na nabigay nya sa akin.”
DeGeneres helped the young international singer before he transitioned and became Jake Zyrus.
The American host announced the end of her talk show, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and said that she didn’t feel challenged anymore. DeGeneres has been a target of cancel culture after allegations of rude behavior behind the scenes.
Zyrus also shared his thoughts about cancel culture.
“People make mistakes, and I think we have to stop the cancel culture and let people learn from their mistakes.”
Earlier, Vice Ganda announced the guests they planned for his online concert Gandemic, including Anne Curtis, Moira Dela Torre, Jake Zyrus, and Ice Seguerra.
As for Zyrus, he recently released his single Fix Me on May 7. The song depicts a man struggling to accept love because he believes that his love interest deserves better.
