Yeng Constantino clears up lesbian rumors


During their launch as the first celebrity endorsers of popular clothing brand RRJ, Vhong Navarro and Yeng Constantino showed that they were indeed worthy to promote RRJ'rsquo;s "He Moves, She Rocks" campaign. With Yeng'rsquo;s rocker girl image and natural talents, she was able to stand out and assert her individualism. While she automatically became a standout in the local industry, it also came with speculations that the first Pinoy Dream Academy Grand Star Dreamer winner could possibly be a tomboy. "Hindi talaga ako tomboy, boyish siguro. Kasi nasanay lang ako na lahat ng mga ka-banda ko lalake, tapos wala ring lalake sa bahay, yung brother ko, gay siya. So ako yung kinakausap nung papa ko," Yeng said.

The pretty 21-year old, who will soon be gracing billboards for her first ever product endorsement, also says she doesn'rsquo;t let herself get affected by what people say about her since she is secure in her sexuality. "Hindi naman ako bothered 'lsquo;pag sinasabi nila na tomboy ako kasi alam ko naman sa loob yung truth na hindi ako ganun. Ako, I just want to be myself. Ayoko masyado lagyan ng wall," she added.

An optimist, Yeng also sees the benefits of being open to different opinions about her. "Maganda rin yung nakikinig ka sa mga tao. Yung mga magagandang naririnig mo, i-keep mo sa heart mo, pero yung nakakapag-pa-down sa 'lsquo;yo, i-throw out mo na lang. Kumbaga yung magagandang sinasabi ng mga tao like yung sa press or mga friends, mga bloggers, idi-deposit ko yun inside me. Kasi sobra talagang nakakatulong. So ako, bina-balance ko lang. Ayokong maging flooded ng mga gusto ng tao na i-project ko pero natural pa rin pero kino-consider ko yung nararamdaman nila. So ganun," she said.

Contrary to what people may assume, Yeng is actually a kikay at heart. She loves the color pink and likes buying pink things for her bedroom. It'rsquo;s only in her clothes where her love for rock n roll music becomes apparent. "Totoo yun. Hindi lang halata pero favorite color ko pink like yung case ng iPod ko, yung pillow ko and yung bed sheet ko color pink. 'lsquo;Pag nasa bahay kayo makikita niyo. Tapos puro stuffed toys. Pero sa music kasi, ever since lumalaki ako, yung tatay ko rock 'lsquo;n roll na so ganito na ako lumaki eh. So hindi ko naman kayang baliin yun dahil kailangan lang," she admitted.

As her co-endorser, Yeng'rsquo;s Kuya Vhong stepped up to defend the 21-year old on the issue and even said he found her offbeat style and personality equally attractive. "Kasi alam nyo, ang style ni Yeng, marami ng nakakagusto dyan. Tulad ko na lang, napuri ko siya nung time na paglabas niya sa PDA kasi napaka-cool nung naka-dress ka at the same time naka-Chucks
