Christian Bautista says he feels the need to have a love life


032311-christian_main.jpgChristian Bautista said that the two trophies he won in the recently concluded 2011 MYX Music Awards were unexpected. He explained, “Hindi ko ine-expect na manalo. Basta ma-nominate, okay na sa akin kasi dati nag-expect ako tapos natalo ako, tapos nalungkot ako nang todo-todo. Ngayon na lang ‘pag nakuha, nakuha. Parang sa love. Ha-ha-ha!” Christian won in the following categories: Favorite Mellow Video (for “I Remember The Girl”) and Favorite Remake (for “Beautiful Girl”).

In addition, his recent album Romance Revisited: The Love Songs of Jose Mari Chan, which include the two songs awarded, has reached quadruple platinum, a rare feat in the local music scene nowadays. Christian also credits Jose Mari Chan’s love songs for his album’s success. “Now kasi kailangang maghanap ka ng ways talaga para bumenta. Dapat magustuhan ng tao ang lahat. Hopefully ‘yung packaging or ‘yung pag-present mo pagkanta mo [magustuhan],” said Christian.

Recently, Universal Records released a limited edition of the said album titled Romance Revisited: The Music Video Collection that contains the tracks' music videos, which feature many of today’s leading ladies, like Angel Locsin, Anne Curtis, Sarah Geronimo, Cristine Reyes, Carmen Soo, and Solenn Heusaff among others.

When asked about his love life, Christian said that he still doesn’t have one. “Ganun pa rin. Single pa rin, walang love life” he said smiling. But he admitted that he already feels that he should do something about it. “Napi-feel ko na rin na parang need [to have] so medyo mas magiging aggressive nang konti siguro this time,” he declared.

But he clarified that he intends to be responsible even if he wants to be more aggressive in looking for a relationship. “Parang hindi naman sugod nang sugod tapos tira lang nang tira na kahit ano tatamaan. Ayoko naman ng ganon. Sigiguraduhin ko lang ngayon. What I’m looking for is a long-lasting relationship lagi naman.”

Christian also talked about his chance meeting with international singer Bruno Mars who will hold a concert in the country soon. The balladeer said that he was in Paris, France strolling when he bumped into Bruno. “Naglalakad lang ako pasok sa loob [ng Louis Vuitton store] tapos nakita ko siya,” Christian said. He continued that he approached the singer and introduced himself as a Filipino. He went on to say that he asked if he could have a picture with Bruno. “Hindi ako pinayagan ng body guard. [And I said], ‘Ah it’s okay, I understand. At least I met you.’ So nakakatuwa naman.”

Christian also said that he has already finished shooting his movie in Indonesia and that they are just waiting for a playdate which is tentatively set for the third or fourth quarter of the year.
