- Filipinos couldn’t get over these notebooks which they’ve forgotten until someone stumbled upon them and uploaded it on social media
- Aside from inside jokes and the comparison of these celebrities then and now, these covers made everyone sentimental
Being a celebrity in the Philippines in this generation has its perks.
Making it big in the industry could sometimes entail having your very own ‘glam’ team. In addition, ending up becoming the other half of a famous love team might earn you thousands of following on Twitter who will always defend you from detractors.
However, being popular also has its downfalls. Their image evolution from day one up to the present time is under the scrutiny of the public eye. Artists who have been present in the industry from way back then are the usual victims of such as they need to face the first hand embarrassment now when they graced notebook covers in the old days – but no need to worry since these were really amazing back then! Right?
In fact, they still are right now! When someone rediscovered these ‘artista’ notebooks, they immediately went viral and Filipinos couldn’t help but become sentimental and shared a few laughs.
Here are some of the best celebrity covers – guaranteed to give you major #FlashbackFriday feels!
