- Bituin Escalante defended her “shady” post about the judges in “Idol Philippines”
- She also responded to netizens who commented on her statement
- The famous singer used “American Idol” as an example in her latest post
Veteran singer Bituin Escalante decided to speak up regarding her controversial statement about the 3 judges in “Idol Philippines.”
KAMI learned that the said artist recently tweeted that only Regine Velasquez would say “yes” to her if she tries to audition in the aforementioned show.
After receiving mixed feedback from netizens, Bituin posted a series of messages in support to her previous statement about the judges in “Idol Philippines.”
She expressed that she was not trying to throw a shade at the other jurors and that her post was merely about “self-awareness.”
The award-winning singer also set as an example what Simon Cowell did in “American Idol” where he “brutally” took down Jennifer Hudson.
“Even American Idol was brutal. Remember Simon Cowell’s painful takedown of Jennifer Hudson? But that’s the nature of the business. It is brutal. And it’s not based solely on raw talent,” she wrote.
A netizen, meanwhile, commented on her post and stated that Vice Ganda, one of the judges in the abovementioned program, loves her very much so he might say “yes” also.
However, she pointed out that the “Unkabogable Star” seemed to have been given the task to rate auditionees based on their “star quality.”
In a previous article by KAMI, Bituin decided to support the opposition despite voting for President Rodrigo Duterte in 2016.
Bituin Escalante is a famous Filipina singer and theatre actress whose song, "Kung Ako na Lang Sana,” won the grand prize during the 2002 ABS-CBN Himig Handog Music Love Song Festival.
