DJ Sam YG, more popularly known as Mr. Shivaker, got a taste of showbiz intrigue at the show's press conference yesterday, December 2, at the Skyline restaurant of GMA-7 Network Center. He will soon be hosting the entertainment show Tweetbiz.
He was asked about the real score between him and singer-actress Karylle since she already admitted that they've gone out a couple times.
DJ Sam YG did not deny this but said that people should not put color into it because "friends lang kami."
The radio jock added that he first met Karylle at a New Year's event of 89.9 Magic FM. Recently she visited his show Boys Night Out with fellow DJs Slick Rick and Tony Toni to promote a project she's doing for charity.
Other than that, DJ Sam YG said there's nothing really special happening between them. He added, "Kasi we watched a movie, e, kaya siguro natsismis."
What can he say about the persistent rumor that they're already in a relationship?
"Talaga? Mahirap ang ganyan," he answered. "Wala naman akong itinatago. I mean, pangit naman siguro 'yon if you have something [with another person]. Hindi ako nagde-deny, pero talagang friends lang kami."
When PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked him if he intends to court Karylle, he said he's not yet emotionally ready to enter a romantic relationship.
He reasoned out, "Right now, I'm really in the phase of my life that I can't pursue, not just her, but anybody, emotionally. Hindi ako emotionally ready. It's just because marami talaga akong ginagawa. There's Boys Night Out, there's Eat Bulaga, two shows on MTV, there's Cool Center, and another one in TV5."
DJ Sam YG also stressed that it would be unfair for the other person if he commits himself to a relationship. He explained, "Parang every minute of my day is accounted for, so it's unfair. Ito na lang... I see somebody—not just Karylle but anybody—today then, next ko na makikita siya three weeks. Parang whoever it is, it's unfair. I don't think a relationship can be formed. Parang long distance lang na hindi mo maintindihan."
DJ Sam YG just assured the showbiz media, "Kapag mayroong something, ako ang tatawag sa inyo."
