18 Aug – While the younger generation of singers would name Regine Velasquez as their idol, the singer revealed that she herself idolises someone as well when it comes to her career in showbiz.
As reported on ABS-CBN, the singer who sat down for an interview on Toni Gonzaga's online show, "I Feel U", stated that she has always been a fan of Sharon Cuneta ever since she was a little girl.
"I have a lot of idols as a child, but my real idol is Sharon Cuneta. I really am a Sharonian. I like Kuh Ledesma as well, but Sharon is really the one until now. I'm starstruck with her," she said.
Velasquez added that she doesn't just see Cuneta as her favourite singer, but actor as well, as she was able to relate to her past films.
"I have seen most of her movies in cinemas. We would really save our money just to watch a Sharon Cuneta movie," she added.
Nonetheless, Velasquez stated that she doesn't really like using the word "idolise', as the only idol in everybody's life should be God himself.
"If there's a word that can probably be used, it's maybe "to look up to" or "to inspire". I prefer being an inspiration [than an idol]," she added.
