Laarni Lozada says she will never be envious of Bugoy Drilon because he is a good friend.
Despite not being a regular performer on ASAP XV, Laarni Lozada is still happy that she is being booked by Star Magic for singing gigs out of town and even shows abroad. This, for her, disproves speculations that the reason her career did not fly high after becoming the Grand Star Dreamer of Pinoy Dream Academy 2 was because she has an attitude problem. “Hindi po totoo ‘yun kasi hanggang ngayon marami pa ring kumukuha sa akin na kumanta. Kaming mga PDA scholars madalas may kumuha sa amin. Talent talaga ang hinahanap ng mga tao ngayon, lalo na ‘yung pagkanta.”
But Laarni admitted that she would be very happy if she would be more visible on TV, like being a mainstay performer on ASAP. “Gusto ko sana kaming mga PDA2 scholars magkaroon kami ng regular exposure sa TV. Pero masaya na rin kasi kapag ABS-CBN talent ka, anytime pwede kang makuha na mag-guest sa kahit anong shows dito.” But the singer said she trusts that Star Magic knows what’s best for her career. “I don’t need to ask. Wala naman akong karapatan, ha ha ha! Kung ano lang ‘yung ibinibigay sa akin ng management, grab lang ako nang grab. Satisfied naman ako sa mga out-of-town shows tsaka sa abroad. Dun talaga kami nakakakuha ng mas malaking bayad.”
Laarni just had shows in Japan and Cambodia where she and other singers were warmly welcomed by Kapamilyas. Her last album though was over a year ago, the carrier single of which, “Kung Iniibig Ka Niya,” was used as the theme song for the afternoon teleserye Kambal sa Uma.
Many are saying that her PDA runner up Bugoy Drilon has a more successful career as a singer and has in fact completely overshadowed her. But Laarni refused to let this affect her friendship with Bugoy. “Siyempre kung ikaw ‘yung Grand Star Dreamer mage-expect ka talaga. Pero kasi mahal ko si Bugoy. Grabe ang bonding na pinagdaanan namin lahat so kung nasaan man siya ngayon happy na rin ako para sa kanya.”
The 25-year-old singer knows that she might never get all the things she wants for now, but what’s more important is that she remains thankful for the blessings that God is giving her. “Walang puwang ang insecurity sa akin kasi naniniwala ako na pareho pa rin kaming blessed. Lahat tayo may kanya-kanyang blessing. Hindi man kami nabibigyan ng masyadong exposure sa TV, at least marami pa ring shows ang naibibigay sa amin.”
