Is Sam Milby Too Shy To Choose Between Maja and Shaina?
By Kiko Escuadro
In celebration of his tenth year in the entertainment industry, Pinoy Big Brother alumnus, Sam Milby, will mount a solo concert dubbed as The Milbyway on November 28, at the Kia Theater, to commemorate his colorful journey as a performer.
In connection with the said event, Sam said that his concert was conceptualized as a grand thank you to everyone who helped him along the way. Milbyway is a galaxial name coined in reference to trace Sam’s path to stardom, and how big he has become as a household name. Know as “The Rockoustic Heartthrob” when he started in PBB, his rise to popularity is inevitable. With good looks coupled with talent, he is meant to be a star.
As part of his upcoming show, other stars who will grace and perform with Sam onstage include Piolo Pascual, Yeng Constantino, KZ Tandingan, Gerald Anderson, Enchong Dee, Rayver Cruz, Angeline Quinto, and John Pratts.
On the lighter side, Sam was asked if he will invite his ex-girlfriends, especially his alleged recent text mate, Maja Salvador to watch the show. “Hindi lang naman kami text mates, we are friends,” said the singer. “It was actually a group chat and we talked there.”
But don’t you exchanged personal messages there? Sam replied, “Sometimes yes, she’s a real person and I admire her so much. Pero ngayon were just friends lang talaga.”
Sam never denied that he likes Maja. “She’s the one that I wanted to be with before na hindi lang nangyari,” he revealed, “pero nagparamdam ako and I tried to get closer to her. She’s a real person. She thinks a lot for anybody’s needs. She’s very caring. Napaka bait na tao.”
Sam went on, “There’s no explanation kung paano ako nahinto in pursuing her. I think things happen for a reason. And now, past is past. I really don’t want to talk about it anymore.”
Another Kapamilya artist who was also constantly linked to the heartthrob was Shaina Magdayao. This is in connection with the issue of text messaging thru “bro-zone.”
“I don’t know if I consider it a bro-zone, but we’re just friends lang naman.” Although Sam admitted that he had also intention to have deeper relationship with Shaina before she left for a US vacation. “Yes before, but it did not materialize, kasi it would be different to develop something more kung friends nalang kami. I don’t know kasi, I’m shy especially if I had intentions, and if I like the girl to be with.”
Is Shaina aware that you have feelings for her? “Yes, she does, but that was a while ago. Yun nga kasi dahil we have same group of friends din but our group doesn’t hang out for a while na dahil sobrang busy na din. Maybe if there was more time to see and bond, baka it moved further,” he shared. Sam is now dating someone, and he said that she’s a model.
For the meantime, Sam is busy rehearsing for his concert. He is also part of the TV series Written In Our Star, and soon he will start a new teleserye.
