Jericho Rosales wants to try different genres and reveals his plans and wishes for 2010.
While anticipating the start of 2010, Jericho Rosales said he wants to experiment with roles he has never done before. "I'm praying that next year 'yung mga projects na dumating sa 'kin medyo exciting pa rin and challenging. I'm thinking of making a couple of changes sa mga projects na gagawin ko so I'm very excited about it. I'll be praying about it," said Jericho. He has already started consulting ABS-CBN management about this. "Let's see kung anong magiging response nila. Basta I am really aiming for something new."
As to what kind of roles he is referring to, he said that he might be veering away with heavy drama and that he will just be putting more creativity on his craft. "May mga nagsasabi noon na mapili daw ako sa projects, well, hindi naman, gusto ko lang mabago 'yun mga roles na gusto ko gampanan sa TV. Sa movie kasi madali lang, e kasi you can play with the characters (according to the story) pero sa TV kasi call pa rin ng tao yun, e [kung anong gusto ng tao which is drama] so I'm praying na magkaroon ako ng opportunity to show the different side of me. Maybe a different genre. I'm thinking of an action-drama, something out-of-the-box and really unpredictable."
While he is planning some career moves, he is still focused on promoting his new album, Change. "Hanggang next year pa 'yung show (Dahil May Isang Ikaw) so basically for next year there are offers para mag-tour ako sa Europe and sa States so baka first quarter of the year I'll be out of the country. Like sa London I think I'm going to have a Valentine show, dalawang Valentine shows and then after that I'm going to take a short break lang, go somewhere by myself. Bahala na and then babalik ako here ng March or April and then by May we might tour the US again."
Jericho admitted that while he feels sad about being single this Christmas, it also makes him feels blessed that he has a lot of time to for himself alone. "I must admit sometimes it (not having a girlfriend) gets a little bit lonely and sad but okay lang 'yun. I've got things to attend to, marami akong mga pinaplanong mga bagay na gusto ko mangayari so I'm going to need much time and I have to fix a lot of things about myself." He added that he is just preparing himself for the next relationship that will come his way.
"I just want more direction and clarity sa mga decisions ko especially hard decisions. I pray for wisdom and that I will be stronger pa next year. I don't want to make a mistake sa mga decision na gagawin ko. I pray for more strength kasi single pa din ako. And also if there's one thing na I want to change ayoko na ng padalos-dalos. For our country, a peaceful election. And sana this time walang violence, sana magkaroon na ng fairness and equality."
One of the things he does every New Year's Day is "cleansing" himself. "I spend the holidays with my family una tapos diretso na ako sa beach. 'Pag New Year kasi hindi ako masyado nags-stay sa Manila kasi 'di naman ako nagpapaputok. e. Ayoko din ng masyadong mausok so mas nag-eenjoy ako sa surfing para bang nahuhugasan mo 'yung sarili mo sa bagong taon kaya gusto kong magbabad sa dagat."
