nadine lustre won the poll for the 100 sexiest women by FHM. and recently, news came out that she and james reid are living together. (and doon ko lang nalaman ang “cohabitation” na term. :P)
marami nag-react negatively to the interview trying to confirm it with her. her reason for living-in together? “it’s 2017… it’s normal na. come on guys.”
WHAT. THE. FRACK.
and then i’m reminded of the classic line in every mother’s litany of things to say when their child is not in good company: “if your friends jump of a cliff, would you jump too?”
if that’s all the reasoning you’ve got, Nadine, you’re not so sexy after all. come up with a better reason. perhaps answer these points raised on PinayVoices.
a second article came out today saying that it’s none of our business if they live together or not. they’re not harming anyone.
maybe dahil artista sila, they have a certain influence on people? like a younger generation? contrast this with AlDub’s “tamang panahon” theme a few months ago.
“it’s 2017 na. come on guys.”
i hear this often, casting a negative perception about people like myself who are opposed to same-sex marriage. they ask, “do you think gay marriage is just about 2 guys or 2 girls having sex? shouldn’t it be about love and commitment?”
my own Catholic understanding is this: marriage, by its very nature, necessitates consummation, such that the union becomes fruitful. that’s why we say “No” to sex outside of marriage — heterosexual or homosexual.
if marriage is about love and commitment [without sex], i would marry my friends and my parents. if marriage is just about sex [without love or commitment], well… that’s what the ‘hookup culture’ is. one-night stands. sex parties.
truth is, marriage is about both: sex and love. because marriage is meant to be unitive and fruitful. outside of marriage, both are meaningless.
how about infertile and impotent people? how come they can get married even if they can’t be fruitful?
contradictory? probably. i just miss posting random things so here’s one for today.
i subscribe to SourceFed on YouTube and they posted this video on Maxim’s Hot 100 for 2013:
of course you’d notice this pause for Jennifer Lawrence. which i just don’t get.
yesterday, i watched The Hunger Games again on the PC at home and i still don’t get it. yes, she is beautiful and extremely attractive… but it won’t make me go “hubba hubba!” (dated expressions. i know!) and then i find this picture:
and then i get it. she is beautiful. she is attractive. but i don’t like her because of those. to me she looks ‘normal’… like someone i’d probably meet on the street. someone i could get to know and chat with. she’s not ‘hot’ and ‘sexy’ like the others who pose provocatively and whose face you easily get tired of. she seems to have a real personality. to me, she’s a different kind of attractive. she’s not too fat, even if others thought she is/was. she’s someone you bring home to introduce to mom and dad. you become a good boy around her — you won’t think of actually doing unspeakable things with her but you still find her ‘yummy’ enough.
or maybe a better term would be “nakakagigil”. it’s not as sexual as the other Filipino terms such as “nakaka-L” or “nakaka-ul*l”. there’s restraint involved and some level of respect, from my perspective. let’s hope it stays that way. 🙂
and i’m sure the title got you here! haha!
and if i were in showbiz, this “status” or blog title would create waves. but i’m a nobody so it’s OK. besides, i haven’t really lost it yet! wala pang nangangahas (or nagkakamali) LOL. but if this “confession” was verbal, it would be a different story. chismis would start, right? and rumors fly fast! and we know that all too well, don’t we? kahit tama or mali yung balita, kakalat at kakalat siya. which brings me to the movie i watched last night: Easy A.
i was supposed to watch Megamind but since i could watch that safely with another person, i opted to watch something that i know *i* would enjoy.
first off, Easy A isn’t for those who are a bit too touchy about their religion or faith. some parts may have been exaggerations but what do you expect from a hollywood film from the US? it’s not meant to conform to our social standards. i guess what you see could (i’m not sure ok?) actually be happening in the schools there.
with that disclaimer, i really think the writers of Easy A were really smart. and can i just say that Emma Stone is so pretty. hot. beautiful. makes me drool. (ok, enough.)
as i was saying, the writers were pretty smart. i dunno, for a teen romantic comedy flick, it’s got brains this one. lotsa quick quips and situations that are *nudge, nudge* type of humor and more talky comedy. for example:
Marianne (the good girl): There’s a higher power that will judge you for your indecency.
Olive Penderghast (the “bad” girl): Tom Cruise?
Magpatuloy magbasa sssshhhh… i just lost my virginity
surprisingly, she’s not blonde! 😀
my usual crushes are blonde. there’s Jessica Boehrs since seeing her in Eurotrip. then there was Amy Smart from Just Friends. and latest was the hot spy from Chuck TV series, Yvone Strahovski, Agent Sarah Walker in the show. but after a long, long gaze, i can’t deny it anymore… i’m crushing on a non-blonde this time: Katy Perry!!!
wala lang. dahil na-curious ako sa season finale ng American Idol, nag-hanap ako sa youtube. and then lumitaw siya sa related videos and my jaw just dropped. i mean i knew she was H-O-T talaga. juice ko, sa video palang ng Starstrukk, i was drooling. (hayok? :P)
now, ang tanong lang eh hindi nga ba siya blonde? baka lang kasi Gandang Ricky Reyes lang ang buhok niya and hindi talaga black? otherwise, she’s a first.
as if totoong magiging kami eh noh? LOL ah basta! i heart her. ♥♥♥
i don’t and do understand. how did maricar reyes come back from the “extremely damaging” video that is Hayden’s doing? some points i have been thinking about the other days.
no, i’m not an entertainment writer in your favorite tabloid but an ordinary person who likes *chismis* and likes to think about these things.
we all know how the videos came about and how the very smart Senator bong revilla wanted to do this expose to make the victims come out. of course, there’s the senate hearing/investigation/waste of money and of course, the two opposing forces — Hayden and Katrina. in between all of this, there was the Brazilian model whose name i never got to know and never heard from ever and there’s maricar reyes.
Magpatuloy magbasa on maricar’s “moves”
has anyone noticed that the logo of MIss Saigon is a helicopter and a woman with a conical straw hat? 😀
Magpatuloy magbasa the heat is on
Jessica Boehrs, that is. 🙂
just watched Eurotrip on my favorite free-movie site and Kristin Kreuk couldn’t hold a candle to her. and since mama melle will be leaving for the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Meteorology in Germany, Jessica is one more reason for me to strive to get through to Max Planck. 😛
and i thought Sabine Schmitz was reason enough to love Germany. 🙂
no corny dedications, no lovesong, no loveletter, no greeting card, no stuffed toy, no roses. just a milestone.
’nuff said. 🙂
i know it seems so corny that i should touch on showbiz issues just to blog. hay naku. pero naiirita talaga ako.
don’t you just hate it when some so-called starlette (rhymes with toilet really well don’t you think? you practically get the same thing in them.) gets pregnant and then the ‘biggest’ and ‘most credible’ showbiz talk shows and talk show hosts get this starlette’s brother, mother, yaya, pet hamster, etc. on the show so that they could talk about it. and the most irritating part is when this guest says, “of course we were shocked when he broke the news to us. but we are so happy for them because this child is a blessing to them. siyempre we understand and we will support them 100%”
is it wrong to be supportive of your children? no. but it makes it not OK when they make mistakes. sometimes BIG ones.
it’s horrifying to have these people talk about their ‘support’ and ‘love’ for their younger sister and tell them how ‘blessed’ they are because they’re going to have a baby soon. yeah, out of wedlock. i’m just too afraid to think about the message this gives to the young people. to me, this says, “it’s OK to get pregnant. your family SHOULD support you and it should be fine with them. otherwise they don’t love you, they don’t care about you, and they’re too narrow minded.”
it’s not only these individuals’ fault. i won’t just blame their parents. i won’t blame teachers. i’d still blame it on these idols that they have — these new stars on TV which i’m getting pretty sick of. it’s them in TV shows, it’s them on movies, and then they’ve even launched awful, awful albums in the market so it’s still them in the record stores!
when this idol’s relatives come out with interviews and statements of support for their daughter/sister/alaga/amo/etc. it’s like a general seal of approval. it really ticks me off! i just wish they’d say, “oo, pinagalitan namin yan. bata pa siya para mabuntis” or “pinagsabihan namin yan. sana alam niya gaano kalaking bagay ang ginawa nila.” i wish they’d rebuke (not condemn) their children’s wrongdoings and show the country that this is not tolerated but it is dealt with properly. by ‘properly’ i mean that we still support and love them but without forgetting that they should be learning a lesson. the only lesson, i think, they learn from this is: use protection, don’t forget your cycle, and don’t get caught. the only thing i see on TV is the support, not the teaching or realization of the lesson learned.
i know and understand the meaning of support for someone who made a mistake. it’s bad to turn your back on someone who needs your support, who needs you to show your love and care. but this ‘it’s OK’ thing? not good.
