"Primarily,people come up to me and say I did well. Hindi naman daw malaswa. If otherswould say na malaswa 'yon, I would defend myself by saying na yun kasi angtingin nila roon, and others don't share the same opinion. Ganoon na lang yun," says Rafael Rosell about his going nude in Blackout.



Nakatakdang mawalang dalawang linggo si Rafael Rosell, kasama ang Coverboys sa U.S. tour ng grupothis August. Pero bago pa yun, gumawa ng matinding impact si Rafael sanakaraang Blackout denim and underwear show ng Bench, na naging controversialdahil sa diumano'y pagkakapili kay Richard Gutierrez bilang pang-finale.

"Hindi ko namanalam na mayroong controversy," sabi ni Rafael sa PEP (PhilippineEntertainment Portal). "Ayoko talagang mag-comment, kasi baka sabihinnakikisawsaw ako. But I wasn't really aware, hanggang may nagsasabi na nga saakin.

"Palagay ko,wala namang issue. Kasi wala namang nagrereklamo because Richard got what hereally wanted, to be placed in the show's finale. I don't think there's aproblem."

May lumabas na sinabi diumano ni Annabelle Rama na mga "laos" lang daw ang naghuhubad,pertaining to all those male celebrity models sa nakaraang Blackout show natinilian. Isa si Rafael sa naghubad sa show at isa sa mga pinakamalakas natinilian ng mga tao.

Matagal bago tinextni Rafael sa amin ang sagot tungkol dito. Halatang pinag-isipan din niya. Heto'ng text message niya:

"Annabelle Ramais a loving and caring mother. It's understandable that she would react likethat if things didn't go the way she wanted it for her son. I'm not a mother,and I don't have offsprings of my own. But I do know that mothers only want thebest for their children. If that's her opinion, I'll respect that.

"As for me, Idon't agree. We were there to work. Some followed the rules and some broke themin the process of having fun and for the purpose of entertaining theaudience."

Gusto lang linawinni Rafael na hindi siya nakipag-compete sa atensiyon para sa iba pa niyangco-models who participated in that fashion event.

"Hindi ko ngasinasabi sa 'yo kung ano ang gagawin ko, di ba? Kasi each of us, may moment sashow. Bahala na kami kung ano ang gagawin namin to be worthy of that moment. Iffor some, I created an impact, well, thank you. Hindi ko rin kasi alam na kunggagawin yun ng iba, ganoon din ang impact na make-create," pahayag niya.

Walang pakundangandin kasi sa paghuhubad si Rafael. Yung ginawa niya sa nakaraang Benchfashion show ay talaga namang nag-create ng uproar. Mga kamay lang niya ang pinangtakip sa kanyang ari. Hindi naman kayang gawin 'yon ng lahatng male models.

Nag-enjoy ba siya saginawa niyang 'yun?

Ani Rafael, "Ican't do anything naman kung negative ang inisip ng ibang tao, na kung inisipnilang desperado ako para gawin 'yon, those people would believe what they wantto believe, di ba?

"Primarily,people come up to me and say I did well. Hindi naman daw malaswa. If otherswould say na malaswa 'yon, I would defend myself by saying na yun kasi angtingin nila roon, and others don't share the same opinion. Ganoon na lang yun.

"Parang sa mgaintriga rin 'yan. They would say, mas okey na yun kesa hindi ako pinapansin.Pero mas gusto ko pa ring napapansin ako in a more positive way. People wouldbelieve what they want to believe, so why be bothered?" nangingitingpaliwanag pa ni Rafael.

Live and let live nalang ang sinusunod na patakaran ni Rafael sa buhay-showbiz na pinasok niya. Insome ways, ini-enjoy na lang niya ang ganitong mga bagay, kaya siguro tumatagalsiya rito.

"Hindi naman saini-enjoy ko nang sobra kahit negative criticisms," paglilinaw niya. "It's justthat I think, it's part of the business. I won't hate naman people for sayingbad things about me, pero hindi rin ako magsi-celebrate o gigimik pa para langisipin na pinapansin nila ako kahit sa ganoong paraan."
