“Gusto ko ilinaw… Bakit ba natin ginagawang big deal ito?”
Daniel Padilla’s side-swept, fringed haircut, while a huge part of his appeal, has apparently become a thing to pick on by his detractors alongside his singing voice.
At a press conference that announced the teen heartthrob’s endorsement of Lily’s Peanut Butter, yesterday, July 2, Daniel firmly told off those who are making a big deal out of his choice of haircut.
“Yung sa buhok, napakaliit na bagay, wag nating palakihin dahil hindi kailangan.
“Di ba, hindi lang naman ako yung may ganitong buhok?
“Ang daming kagaya ng ganitong buhok,” the young actor said with frustration in his voice.
Recently, his hairstyle obtained more attention when Charice started sporting the same cut alongside her coming out.
On social media, many commented on the similarity between Daniel’s and Charice’s hairstyle the moment the YouTube sensation turned international artist’s photos went viral on the Internet.
Daniel expressed his frustration over the unnecessary attention that some people are giving over the said matter.
The young actor relayed, “Bigyan natin si Charice ng ano… wag natin siyang gawing parang ako dahil hindi naman gano’n.
“Saka si Charice na yun! Wag n’yo ako ikumpara. Hindi… ang taas na nun para sa akin, di ba?”
Daniel feels that he is nowhere near Charice’s achievements.
“Oo, mali. Hindi puwedeng gano’n!
“Respetuhin natin si Charice dahil naging pride din ng Pilipino ’yan!” he stressed.
Asked, on a lighter note, if he sees his hairstyle as his lucky charm, Daniel replied with a grin, “Hindi naman! Ito lang yung bagay sa akin.
“Paano? Pakalbo tayo, e hindi naman bagay sa akin, di ba?
“Sa akin, wala namang lucky charm sa akin.
“Basta ang alam ko, ang Diyos andiyan lang para sa akin.”
