Charice supports the government's campaign against illegal drugs: "You keep saying that you only live once, but that doesn't mean you have to shorten your life."


Tahimik lang daw si Charice pero buo ang suporta niya sa ginagawang kampanya ng gobyerno laban sa ilegal na droga.

Sa katunayan, pagdating sa bilang ng mga taong nasawi dahil sa kampanyang ito, nasa gobyerno raw ang kanyang simpatya.

“This is ridiculous. Everybody fights for it.

“Then, when someone gets killed because he's a drug addict, I mean, who are we gonna save, the drug addict or the victim?

“That's the simple answer to it.

“I watch the news, I'm just quiet. That's the answer to it. Choose who you save, the drug addict or the victim,” sabi ng 24-year-old music artist nang makausap siya ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang reporters matapos ang press conference para sa bago niyang album na Catharsis kahapon, September 30.

Kaugnay nito, interesado rin daw siya sa sinasabing listahan ng showbiz personalities na diumano'y sangkot sa ilegal na droga.

Ani Charice, “Actually, I'm interested. Kung hindi ka naman takot, why not?”

Bilang artista, minsan na rin daw niyang narasanan na mapagbintangang gumagamit ng ilegal na droga.

Biro niya, “Ako nga, lagi akong nai-issue na nagda-drugs.

Excited na nga akong matawag na magpa-drug test, e. Natatawa ako.

'Yon lang sa akin, kung hindi ka takot, just get out there. It's ridiculous. I support that 100 percent.”

MUSIC ARTISTS USING ILLEGAL DRUGS. Hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ni Charice na may ilang kilalang local at international music artists na gumagamit illegal drugs para diumano maging mas creative sa kanilang mga komposisyon.

Kaugnay nito, nabanggit sa press conference ang mga bagong iniidolo niyang sina Kurt Cobain ng Nirvana at Janis Joplin.

Nilinaw naman ni Charice na bagama't idolo niya ang mga ito, hindi ibig sabihin ay suportado niya ang paggamit ng ilegal na droga kaugnay sa trabaho bilang music artist.

I honestly don't get why people do drugs,” ani Charice.

I didn't like Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin because they did drugs.

I just hate to say that maybe they wanted to look cool. I'm sorry.”

Pagkatapos ay ibinahagi niya sa entertainment reporters, “Based on my experiences, I worked with a lot of artists here and in the States, especially in the States, there were so many young artists and not even young artists that I worked with in the studio.

I don't get it when they're like, 'Oh, I wanna do this. I wanna do that.'

They tell me that it helps them think.

But the thing is, I don't get it. I really don't.

At the end of the day, when I see them, sorry for the word, feel like sh*t, I was like, 'Why do you do it?'

That's one of the reasons I don't see why Kurt Cobain did what he did.”

Sa huli, sinabi ni Charice na ang paggamit ng ilegal na droga ay “waste of life.”

“You keep saying that you only live once, but that doesn't mean you have to shorten your life.

“You only live once, I'm not saying you gotta live healthy, but you gotta live right.

“Be happy. Alcohol is fine, and vaping. But drugs, I don't think so. I'm against it.”
