Opisyal na ipinakilala si Claudia Barretto bilang pinakabagong contract star ng Viva Artists Agency at ng Viva Records sa pamamagitan ng isang virtual presscon nitong Miyerkules ng hapon, January 20.
Bukod sa pagkakaroon ng magandang mukha, ang honesty ni Claudia at ang straightforward na pagsagot nito sa mga tanong sa kanya ang ilan sa mga pinuri ng entertainment writers.
Para kay Claudia, ang pagiging matapat niya ang dahilan kaya madali sa kanya ang makipag-usap sa ibang tao.
Sabi ng 21-year-old singer, "I don’t’ know if you would consider it unique, but what I pride myself in is my honesty.
"I think that it’s easier for me to converse with other people because I’m just being honest so I can’t go wrong with being honest, and that’s how I feel as an artist as well.
"As long as I’m being honest, I won’t really be making mistakes because that’s what real, my honesty."
Napakinabangan ni Claudia ang katapatan nito nang tanungin kung ano ang payo ng kanyang amang si Dennis Padilla tungkol sa pagpasok niya sa entertainment industry.
"For me, there are lot of things that people have not come to be aware of yet, especially when it comes to familial relationships.
"And for me, I’m naturally a very private person, but especially when it comes to family because I’m very protective, not only my peace but also my family's.
"I would love to answer if you have any other question to me, I would love to answer," sabi ni Claudia, na naging magalang sa pagtanggi na sagutin ang tanong na may kinalaman sa kanyang ama.
Hindi rin inilihim ni Claudia ang kabang nararamdaman dahil sa bagong chapter ng kanyang music career.
"I feel some kind of nervousness, but it’s more of the excitement because I feel very motivated and very supported, and just ready to really put in the work and achieve the dreams and the goals that I’ve set for myself."
Passion ni Claudia ang music at ang pagkanta kaya hindi niya priority ang pag-arte tulad ng kanyang kapatid na si Julia Barretto.
Sa tanong kung may plano siyang maging aktres, ito ang sagot niya:
"Let's see, whatever wherever life takes me. If I’m prepared, if the opportunity comes and I’m prepared, maybe I’ll give it a shot.
"But if not, I’m also okay just doing whatever it is that I feel called to do."
Komportable si Claudia sa role niya sa Friend Zone dahil isang Filipina singer ang kanyang ginampanang karakter.
"The project was I was also playing a singer, so my little cameo in the film was me singing so it wasn’t so much acting.
"It was such a good experience, to be recognized anywhere other than the Philippines is an honor. To be on the shortlist of artists that they wanted to be a part of the film, it’s an honor.
"It was a very cool experience because we shot a music video, we recorded a song and we filmed my cameo in ten hours, like, in one day.
"So it was a very good and very cool experience for me.”
