Sarah Geronimo Thinks She Needs A Rest From Showbiz
By Kiko Escuadro
“Siguro kung itutuloy ko ang mga pansariling desisyon ko sa buhay, tamang balance lang sa career ko, siguro mahahanapan ko ng oras ‘yung mga simpleng bagay na gusto kong gawin, tulad ng mag luto, mag-aral, mag drive, para mabigyan ko ng time ang personal growth ko na magagamit ko sa kinabukasan ko, at maging equip ako sa tinatawag na buhay.”
Pop Star Princess, Sarah Geronimo will have another sold out concert next month (December 4 and 5), entitled From The Top, produced by Viva Artist Regency. It was originally planned as a one night show only, but due to public demand, the management decided to add one more night as a Christmas gift to her fans.
In an interview with glitter.ph, Sarah shared that she will sing mostly all her original songs. “Matagal ko na po talaga gusto gawin ang mag perform ng sariling atin, pero s’yempre may mga fears pa din na baka hindi ma appreciate ng mga tao kasi hahanapan ka pa din ng mga current songs, yung bibigyan mo ng version mo ang sikat na kanta ngayon. Pero ngayon nakakatuwa kasi buong-buo na lahat at natupad ko ang gusto kong gawin. And I would like to thank boss Vic del Rosario for giving me all the support that I need.”
Sarah was asked how is she going to wrap up her 2015. “For me, ang 2015 ko is life changing kasi I never thought na makaka abot ako sa gantong stage sa career ko, tapos I’ll be turning 30 soon na, kaya madami ako iniisip for my future and syempre inaalam ko what I really want for my self. Mostly, mga ganung bagay lang ang iniisip ko.”
Having been in showbiz for the past twelve years, Sarah admitted that she had a happy and colorful life, especially with all the achievements she had received. She was honest enough to admit also that she sacrificed a lot just to be where she is now.
“Normal lang naman sa mga young adult ang mag isip ng mga bagay para sa future nila,” as she adimitted that she experienced depressions, too. “Hindi naman po sobra, pero lahat tayo dumadaan doon na nalulungkot tayo despite of everything.”
But she was quick to defend that she didn’t regret anything, even if she felt that part of her childhood was missing. “I still have time to do things, pero paano ko gagawin? How do I catch things up? Help me god!” she laughed.
We asked her if she think she needs to take a break in her career. “Wala pa naman pong definite na plano sa mga ganyang bagay, pinag-iisipan ko pa pong mabuti ang lahat, lahat, kasi syempre I have this apprehension na di ko maalis matakot kasi baka kung mag rest ka, tanggapin ka pa ba ulit ng mga tao pag balik mo,” she replied.
The singer-actress also defended her parents for allegedly being over protective to her. “Sa ibang aspeto ng buhay hinahayaan ako ng magulang ko to decide on my own, pero hindi lahat,” Sarah stated. “All my life andyan ang magulang ko. I think hindi lang naman ako ang may ganitong sitwasyon na over protective ang magulang, siguro lang depende nalang kung paano mo i-handle na walang ibang tao na masasaktan. Meron lang sila kanya-kanyang opinion, and they let me decide on my own, especially when it comes to love life, pero at the end of the day, magulang ko sila.”
On the lighter side, we asked her if given the chance, will she be willing to do the role of Darna.
“Parang, Ding ang body suit!” she laughed. “Honestly, no. Hindi para sa akin yun kasi for you to accept the role na super hero, dapat malakas ka talaga, kasi hindi madadaya ang mga viewers. Sa totoo lang, di ko pa kaya mag two piece, hanggang sa banyo lang.”
Aside from rehearsing for her concert, the Pop Princess is now trying to finish her new recording to be released first quarter of 2016.
