Angeline Quinto says there's no rivalry between her and Sarah Geronimo


031911-angeline-main.jpgAngeline Quinto was grateful to have the chance to perform with Sarah Geronimo for ASAP Rocks last March 6. They were once rivals in the singing contest Star For A Night which eventually catapulted Sarah to stardom nine years ago. But unknown to most people, they were also good friends back then. “Oo kaming dalawa magkasama palagi, natutulog kami magkadikit talaga. Yung pagkakakilala ko sa kanya, mabait tsaka tahimik lang. Pero kapag may problema ako nandun siya para magbigay ng advice na hindi ko naririnig sa magulang, dati yun, nung magkasama kami sa contest,” said Angeline in a recent interview with Push.com.ph.

The two drifted apart since Sarah has been working nonstop since she won the said competition. But Angeline was glad that the Popstar Princess still remembered her when they saw each other again on ASAP. “Kasi ‘di ba nung Star For A Night yun ang huli naming magkasama, ang tagal na, lagi sa TV ko na lang siya nakikita. Sabi ko nga, nakakatuwa si Sarah kasi ang layo-layo na ng narating niya. Tapos talagang tuwang-tuwa ako na medyo kinakabahan kasi baka hindi na niya ako kilala. Pero ganon pa rin kahit papaano.”

Angeline further shared that Sarah was really happy for her, knowing that she was finally able to join the music industry through Star Power. “Noong una hindi niya ako napansin, siguro kasi mataba ako noon, sabi lang niya, ‘Hi.’ Naisip ko, ‘Hala, ‘di na ata ako kilala ni Sarah.’ Hanggang sa na-realize niya na, ‘Ikaw pala ’yan!’ Niyakap niya ako pati dad niya. Yung mom niya dati ’di ko naman nakita masyado. Kinongratulate nila ako at sinabihan ng good luck. Tinanong niya ako kung naalala ko pa daw Star For A Night. Sabi ko, ‘Oo naman, lalo na ikaw dahil kasama kita dun.’ Tapos natutuwa siya kasi naalala niya pa rin mga kalokohan namin dati.”

When asked how she feels about being compared with Sarah, Angeline explained that she has a long way to go before she could measure up to the success of her idol. Luckily, she’s quite used to such intrigues even during the Star Power competition. “Sa akin siguro normal talaga yun kasi kahit sa Star Power may ibang fans na ayaw sa akin, e lalo na Sarah siya. Siyempre ang daming fans nun. Parang ang akin na lang, okay naman po, basta kami ni Sarah okay lang din.”
