Sarah Geronimo: "Pagpapatuloy ko ba ito o meron ba kong isa pang pangarap na sa tingin ko doon ako talaga magiging mas masaya?”

Is Sarah Geronimo having a quarterlife crisis?

In an interview aired last July 13 on Showbiz Inside Report, The Voice of the Philippines coach is openly asking questions about where life will take her and reconsidering the choices she has made in her career.

“Iniisip ko, ano na ba talaga mangyayari? Ano ba talagang gusto ko? Pagpapatuloy ko ba ito o meron ba kong isa pang pangarap na sa tingin ko doon ako talaga magiging mas masaya?”

The Popstar Princess will be celebrating her 25th birthday this July 25. During her career spanning a decade, Sarah is an accomplished singer whose albums have earned Gold and Platinum Record Awards and she has performed in soldout concerts aside from receiving accolades from international and local award-giving bodies. As an actress, she has received the title of Box-Office Queen and was more recently named as Princess of Philippine Movies.

According to, a quarterlife crisis refers to a “crisis that may be experienced in one's twenties, involving anxiety over the direction and quality of one's life.”

Her fervent wish for her upcoming birthday is to grow in all aspects of her life, career and love.

“Mag-grow lang talaga yung totality ng pagkatao ko,” said Sarah about her birthday wish this year. “Kasi, eto talaga passion ko: music talaga. Mag-grow ako [sa] lahat. Yung relationship ko with my family, with the Lord, yung relationship ko with yung mga kasama ko sa trabaho...

The singer-actress admits that this growth also covers her love life, which has been been colorful, to say the least.

“Love life siyempre parte yun. The next time I fall in love, yun pa rin—totoo—sana totoo na talaga.”

She was also asked about the so-called “feud” between her and fellow The Voice PH coach, Lea Salonga. While doing the blind auditions for ABS-CBN’s reality singing competition, there have been instances when contenders would pick Lea over Sarah.

Sarah said with a smile: “Wala naman yun, ano yun, e, part yun ng pagiging sport ng show. Yung fun, ganun talaga iyong reality ng The Voice of the Philippines.

Sarah clarifies, “Meron talagang ‘di pinipili na coach. ‘Di naman pwedeng sumama yung loob.”

When asked about her experience on choosing and acquiring singing talents to be part of her group, Sarah admits: “Siyempre mahirap. Kelangan pabulaklakan talaga ng words, labasan ng credentials. Gagawin mo lahat, sasabihin mo na lahat para lang makuha siya.”
