Nadine Lustre Says She Has No Regrets About Being Upfront In Interviews
It's been an *intense* year for 26-year-old Nadine Lustre so far, and she recently got real about the artista life and common misconceptions people have about it during her live interview with Monster RX93.1.
"We don't have everything," she stressed. "People might think, 'Their lives are so good, they have everything.' We don't. That's one of the things that I want people to know and understand, and to remember. We don't have everything."
Nadine shared: "There are a lot of things that I want to achieve, a lot of things that I want to do. [There are] a lot of things in my life that I wish were different. A lot of things happened in my life that I wish never happened, you know?"
"They always think that our lives are so glamorous, like walang problema, it's so easy. It's hard...The biggest challenge that I ever experienced being in this industry is to learn how to put a straight face on, even though inside, you're already falling apart. I experienced that when my brother died...I [was doing] It's Showtime, it was so hard because I had to put a happy face—a smiling face—on, but deep down I was breaking because of what happened."
"Everything is magnified. If you make a mistake, it's always magnified like 10 times. That's one of the things that I had a hard time dealing with. It's hard e, we make mistakes also. We're people, too. But we are in this industry, and there's a reason why we're all here. We have to deal with it."
During her interview, Nadine also talked about her upcoming album, saying that there will be more than ten songs in it. She shared that she really *dug deep* for the yet-untitled project. "I want this to be like a diary that everyone could experience."
When asked where she finds the strength to always answer questions head-on, especially during interviews, Nadine said, "I don't know, it just kind of happens...At the end of the day, I don't regret what I said. Especially those interviews. I guess I'm not really worried anymore. Because before, I used to care about what people would say about me. But I grew so much, being in this industry, I grew so much. I guess I just learned how to be bulletproof...If I do say something, if I make a mistake, then that's on me. I also don't want to act like I'm perfect. If I make mistakes, then I make those mistakes, and I learn from [them]."
The actress also talked about what she focuses on whenever people say mean things about her: "At the end of the day, the only thing that matters is what you think about yourself. It's not what other people think about you, it's what you think about yourself."

Here's my two cents on the letter, call for help of our medical frontliners. Let’s hear what our healthcare workers have to say and try to understand it from their point of view, they have every right to criticize how this medical crisis is being handled by the government... after all, they're the experts on the topic. Though we see the frontliners as heroes in our eyes, the lack of concrete plans from the government to combat COVID-19 makes them feel otherwise. Healthcare workers are already starting to voice out how they feel as though they are being sacrificed as they follow through their sworn oath. We wouldn’t send our soldiers to war unarmed and without a concrete plan; the same should be expected for our frontliners. How can we send them to battle without proper gear? Why is there still a debate on whether mass testing is needed or not when the experts on that field continuously insist its importance in flattening the curve? Why is this still not the priority when it’s literally our lives on the line? It’s not like the medical experts demanding for mass testing are just stating their opinion about this mindlessly, they studied this laboriously. Make them feel heard so that all the sacrifices that they’re doing and all the deaths of their colleagues are not in vain. More than the words of praises, what our medical professionals truly need right now is TANGIBLE support. Here is to hoping they get that soon. @errren.22

Here is a photograph taken yesterday from the photo shoot I did in our house. ? I really love dressing up and being dolled up, it makes me feel great and confident of who I am ?
I was actually hesitant to post these pictures of mine. My sister eveb asked me to change my Facebook Profile Picture and it took me hours to decide if I should. But, I realized that this is me, the real me. I should be confident of my body and of who I really am.
At the end of the day, I dress up not for other people but for myself ? To all the ladies out there and even gentlemen who are taking a second to think if they should post their pictures, worried about what will others say their body, remember that we just need to be just ourselves. Be confident and let us support each other ? Let us be friends! IG: @romynaaaaaaa_
They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?
I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.
I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.
I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.
No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
