“Ang naramdaman ko po is shock and super confused. Kasi po sa Gold Squad, tinanong ako kung ano yung mga ibang experiences as an artist na hindi ko nagugustuhan and then I answered yung nararanasan ko when I was 13. Lahat ng tao hindi alam yun kasi nagco-comment sila, akala nila yun yung mindset ko ngayon, but no.”
During the interview, Andrea revealed she did not read the comments and criticisms she faced for her statement.
“Hindi ko binasa yung comments, ang alam ko lang yun sinabi sakin ni mommy na marami raw nagsasabing inggitera ako, na immature ako, na selfish ako, na hindi ko rin maintindihan kasi first of all, wala akong sinabing na hindi nila ‘to deserve. I didn’t invalidate their success, their talent, their craft, all I said is masakit siya para sakin.”
At the end of their interview, Boy also gave a word of advice to Andrea regarding the issue but nevertheless said that her answer and the question she was asked were valid.
