Will Daniel Padilla go sexy in his upcoming concert at the Araneta Coliseum?
The teen singer-actor answered, “Parang mas sexy ito.”
But he added with a smile: “Hindi ako ang sexy, yung mga kanta ang sexy.”
Daniel, also known by his monicker DJ, joked around with members of the media who attended the press conference for his April 30 concert titled DOS The Daniel Padilla Concert at the Big Dome.
This concert will mark the second time that Daniel will perform at the Big Dome after his sold-out Daniel Live! debut concert in 2013.
Although his physique has improved, Daniel says he isn't ready for a sexy image yet. When asked if he will be wearing sexy outfits during his concert, DJ pointed out: "Siguro yung braso ko lang po yung lumaki, pero yung tiyan ko malaki pa rin so mukhang wala muna. Siguro walang sleeves, okay lang pero pag labasan na ng tiyan hindi na lang, pang comedy, e."
Daniel, who is already considered a multiplatinum-selling recording artist, would rather focus on his acting career rather than his singing career.
“Hindi ko po masyadong magiging career ang pagiging singer. Hindi ko iniisip na pang concert concert ako, talagang kumbaga kabayaran po 'to para sa mga supporters natin, eto lang po yung moment para magkita-kita kaming lahat.”
When asked if he aspires to take on the title of Concert Prince, he said, “Hindi na po siguro para sa akin 'yon, sa acting na lang po ako.”
The actor considers his albums and concerts as gifts for his fans. "'Eto naman kasing mga concert at yung mga albums hindi naman 'to para sa ‘kin talaga, e.
"Hindi ko 'sya tini-treat na para sa ‘kin, para tumaas pa, para sa mga supporters actually kasi kung maririnig mo yung mga kinakanta ko diyan hindi ko naman talaga genre 'yon, e. More on rock ang genre ko pero kinakanta ko dahil yun ang gusto nila, yun ang talagang mission ng mga album."
ON HIS IDOL RICO BLANCO. The DOS concert will be held on April 30, a few days after his 19th birthday on April 26.
He will be joined by his bandmates from Parking 5, OPM rock icon Rico Blanco, actor-singer Khalil Ramos, and The Reo Brothers (a band composed of siblings from Tacloban who survived the devastation of Super Typhoon Yolanda).
"Grabe yung kaba ko nung nag rehearsal kami, e, namasa yung kili-kili ko," DJ quipped when asked to recall his rehearsals with Rico Blanco. "Nung ako lang mag-isa na ko-korek ko yung kanta pero nung nandiyan na siya nagkakamali-mali na ako.
"Siyempre legend na si sir Rico Blanco, kaya talagang kabado ako, idol ko pa 'yon. Pero ang sarap kasi tinutulungan niya rin ako, e." Daniel revealed that he personally requested for Rico Blanco to be part of his concert.
Daniel is set to sing 16-18 classic rock songs such as “One Way or Another” by Blondie, “Something” from The Beatles and “You Really Got Me” by Van Halen.
After much prodding from the press, Daniel opened up regarding the status of his relationship with Kathryn Bernardo and the fact that they can't be officially in a relationship because of conflicts with their religion.
When asked if he was willing to convert to Iglesia ni Cristo (INC), DJ pointed out: “Sa future pa tayo makakapagdecide, tignan natin, dahil marami pa naman mangyayari.”
He then added, “Siyempre open naman ako, Diyos pa rin 'yon bakit naman aayawan?”
Since he is not in an official relationship with Kathryn, does that mean that Kathryn is allowed to be courted by someone else? Daniel confidently answered, “Kung alam siguro nung lalaki yung mga nangyayari ngayon hindi siguro niya liligawan si Kathryn.”
The singer-actor stressed that they remain happy despite that fact that they are not yet in a relationship. "Close naman po kami ni Kathryn, kami yung tipong masaya pag magkasama."
Kathryn will be present at the DOS concert to perform a duet with Daniel, a segment that will surely up the kilig factor for all the KathNiel fans out there.
This April, Daniel is slated to release his third album under Star Records in the hopes of replicating the Double Platinum award success of his two previous albums.
Given the success of his singing career and acting career, can Daniel say that he already has everything that he wants?
"Hindi ko pa po 'yan masasabi, marami pa po akong mga plano, marami pa akong mga gustong gawin na hindi ko pa nagagawa."
Daniel assures fans that this DOS concert will be better than his first. When asked how he could compare this upcoming concert to the previous one, the teen heartthrob claimed, "Mas tigas 'tong pangalawa, dati medyo gulo-gulo, e.
"Siyempre na experience ko na yung una so ngayon alam ko na yung mga dapat gawin at hindi ko dapat gawin pag nandoon sa Araneta nga po.
"Yung mga rehearsal talagang inaayos po namin, talagang ginagandahan po namin. Kahit mabilis dapat saulo and lahat po at alam ang bagsakan at kelan ang pasok."
Would he consider himself a better singer now?
DJ said with a smile, "Hindi naman po, mas kumapal lang mukha ko ngayon. Hindi, siguro mas kumportable lang ako ngayon kaysa noong una."
The teen matinee idol is intent on improving his singing skills to avoid bashers . "Siyempre po kahit parang trip-trip lang 'tong pagkanta, kailangan ayusin pa rin para wala nang masabi yung mga tao."
After his Big Dome concert, Daniel is slated to perform in London, Rome, Milan and Dubai with Yeng Constantino.
