- The singer dubbed as Asia's Phoenix answered it on Tonight With Boy Abunda
- Sarah's fans, however, criticized the show for its wrong information
Morissette Amon still can't escape being compared with former The Voice of the Philippines coach Sarah Geronimo.
On Tonight With Boy Abunda, Morissette was asked for her comment regarding negative reactions to her concert ticket pricing.
"Some people were saying, 'Bakit ang tickets ni Morissette mas mahal sa mga ticket ni Sarah Geronimo," asked host Boy Abunda.
The singer, however, clarified that she has nothing to do with ticket pricing.
"I don't know with the producers. It's not my job to choose the ticket prices po," said Morissette.
"Wala kang say dun?" prodded Boy.
"Wala po akong say dun," stressed Morissette.
Sarah's fans, however, were quick to react on Facebook and YouTube, where the interview was also posted.
Popsters, as Sarah's fans are known, clarified that Sarah has unpublished VVIP tickets, which costs PHP 10,000.
They criticized the TWBA staff for not doing their research properly.
Sarah G Royalty: "Mas mahal po ang ticket prices ni Sarah G than Morissette hehe. Hello daw po sa VVIP 10k "
