5 Things You Missed While You Were In School (March 27)
Teen king Daniel Padilla spoke up on the religious issue between him and onscreen partner Kathryn Bernardo. The young actor said that he is open to changing his religious beliefs to be with Kath. As you all know, the teen queen is a member of Iglesia Ni Cristo (INC), while Daniel is a Catholic. "Tignan natin at marami pa namang pwedeng mangyari sa future. Siguro hindi pa ako makakapag-decide ngayon. Pero siyempre, open naman ako. Diyos pa rin 'yan, bakit naman aayawan ko?," he said in an interview with ABS-CBN News. He further added, "Oo, INC siya. Okay lang, ganoon naman talaga. Pero sa future pa tayo makakapag-decide niyan. Hindi naman isyu ang religion. Hindi lang tayo pwedeng magdesisyon ngayon." Thoughts, Candy Girls?
Do you have any idea how popular Korean star Lee Min Ho is? Oh, he's really not that popular. *sarcasm* He was just offered a whopping $470,00o to make a cameo appearance in a Chinese show. According to reports, LMH is so popular in China that they want him to star in one show. But because they can't get him, they offered him a cameo appearance for that huge amount of moolah instead!
Oh no! Our golden boy Zac Efron was reportedly hit on the face during a recent attack in the skid row area of Los Angeles! What happened? Apparently, Zac and his bodyguard were waiting for a tow truck in the area because they ran out of gas. His bodyguard threw a bottle out the window and, unforch, hit a group of "transients" in the area. When the transients attacked him, Zac went out of the car to help and got punched in the mouth instead. No worries, though, because the High School Musical alum's face is doing fine. Whew!
Selena Gomez has been through a lot lately, but that didn't stop her from inspiring teens to be their best selves. The Disney alum took centerstage earlier at We Day California, a youth empowerement event, to tell her story. "I'm surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me. Some of them have, and others haven't. They pressure me... You got to be sexy. You got to be cute. You got to be nice. You got to be all these things," she says, "Until recently, I had given in to that pressure. I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people. I tried to change who I am, because I thought that others would accept me for it. And I realized, I don't know how to be anything but myself." Listen to the rest of Sel's inspiring message below.
