In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Dra. Belo said she just wanted to play dress up which is why she tried recreating the K-pop super group's fancy music video outfits using the clothes in her closet.
For the celebrity beauty doctor, this is one of her ways to stay youthful at the age of 65.
She said, "One of the things that I do to stay young is to stay in touch with everything and to just play.
"And one of the things that I used to love to do when I was young is use my mother's clothes, change my look.
"So, naisipan namin yung BlackPink, 'Ay! I wanna look like Lisa... Jennie...' So I looked at my closet, wala po akong binili. Kailangan ko lang ng medyo similar.
"Wala lang, naglaro lang ako ng dress up."
MESSAGE TO SUPPORTERS AND BASHERS
Dra. Belo revealed that she did read some negative comments from bashers about her short video project.
She expressed her gratitude to her social media followers who defended her from the "negatrons" of social media.
"Maraming nangba-bash pero marami rin namang nagtatanggol," she told PEP.ph.
"Thank you so much. I really have fun reading the comments on my IG or my TikTok. Lalo na yung pinagtatanggol ako. Thank you so much!
"I do see them [commenting] na, 'Kung gusto niya gawin yun, hayaan niyo na siya, maganda naman siya, kahit with her age or whatever...'
"Parang I really feel so loved by you guys, I feel like you are my friends.
"Kahit hindi ko pa kayo nakikita, parang kilala ko na kayo kasi lagi ko nakikitang dine-defend niyo ako and pina-follow niyo ang mga sinasabi ko. Thank you so much!"
As for her message to her bashers, Dra. Belo said, "Basta enjoy lang po kayo kung anong gusto niyong gawin sa buhay.
"Hindi naman po nakaka-hurt kahit kanino. And huwag na kayo mag-bash ng kahit ano. Ageism is bad."
FRIENDSHIP WITH YOLANDA HADID
Meanwhile, some of her Instagram followers also wondered about her friendship with American TV personality Yolanda Hadid, the mother of supermodels Bella and Gigi Hadid.
Netizen's curiosity about their friendship grew after Yolanda commented in one of Dra. Belo's posts on Instagram Reels.
Dra. Belo revealed to PEP.ph that she and Yolanda have been friends for quite a while.
She said, "Yolanda Hadid and I have been close for... siguro when Gigi and Bella were only 16. And I used to stay in their house in Malibu.
"We've been friends a long time."
According to Dra. Belo, she met Yolanda during one of the latter's trips to the Philippines years back when she joined ex-husband David Foster who staged a concert in the country.
Since then, they have maintained their communication with each other.
Dra. Belo recalled, "When they were married, they come to concerts here. And then, I entertain Yolanda."
Dra. Belo also often visits Yolanda every time she flies to the U.S.
"When I go there [to Los Angeles], she invites me to stay with her. So, kilalang-kilala ko na sina Anwar, Bella, and Gigi nung bata pa sila. And ngayon, napaka-big time na."
