PAPA JACK SAID #464: Ang lalaki kahit simple reason lang kung ayaw na niya aayaw talaga yan, pero ang babae mas attached kasi yan. Mas mabilis din magmove on ang mga guys, ang mga babae naman hirap na hirap mag-let go. Kaya guys, irespeto niyo sana yung mga kahinaan na yun ng mga girls.
“OH MY GAAAAHHHHWD, HER ACCENT! Why didn’t they, like, do something about it?”
“GAAAAHHHWWWD, why does she keep flailing?”
I would really, really, really love for those people who dropped the first complaint to speak in straight English for ten whole minutes within my hearing range. Because I think I speak decent English but I know for a fact that I have barok moments where my “Filipino accent” pops up, and that’s not a bad thing.
Ohmigod, you speak, like, great English, you, like, totally sound American! CONGRATULATIONS. WHAT AN ACHIEVEMENT.
Besides, it’s not like Charice’s diction on Glee was all that different from the way a good number of Pinoys who travel abroad try to talk. (Don’t tell me you don’t know what I’m talking about. Haha!) I’m not saying that everyone does that, but there are some who do (AMININ!), so it’s not a particularly inaccurate portrayal of what a Filipino exchange student might actually speak like. Hindi naman siya pwede mag-Tagalog, US series yan eh. It might annoy me in real life, but it works for the show.
And with the second, well, yeah. Flailing. I’m not a fan of it, but it’s not like this was a live performance. If the director was unsatisfied with what Charice was doing, surely they could have done a retake and he could have instructed her to stop moving around so much. If they kept it in, they kept it in. If you play the episode in the background and just listen, that song was killer. The flailing didn’t make it any less killer.
Man. I kinda can’t believe I’m actually defending Charice because I’m not a fan (and I admit I’ve made fun of “Pyramid” on more than a few occasions), but I can recognize talent when I see it, and I have so much respect for her. I’ve heard her sing, just in her dressing room. No mics, no sound techs tweaking with the settings to make her sound more powerful, nothing. Just her voice. And she sounds just like she did on Glee, if not better. Mindblowingly good.
She’s on that show because her voice is amazing. She did what she was supposed to do, and she did it well. So her performance wasn’t technically perfect. So what? I’m really proud of her.
