“I know that she’s doing what she loves to do and she’s expressing her form of music through her songs… or [the way] she’s expressing herself and her image through her songs. So, I respect her for that.”
SO BE IT. While Toni holds no grudge against Lady Gaga or her legion of fans, the TV host/actress holds her ground: “What I merely stated was just my opinion and if I get bashed for my personal opinion, then so be it."
Does Toni believes that music can penetrate a person’s thinking.
“Whatever it is that we put in our hearts and minds, whatever seed you plant in it, it will grow. We might not know it but subconsciously, in one way or another, it can affect us.”
She reiterated, nonetheless, “I respect her and I will continue to respect her and her music but it’s just my personal choice to stop listening na lang … to her songs.
“But my respect for her doesn’t stop as an artist.”
