K-La Rivera defends Star Power colleague Angeline Quinto from intrigues

061711-k-la_main.jpgK-La Rivera never harbored any bitterness toward Angeline Quinto who bested her and other young singers in the Star Power competition. K-La said she is very happy about Angeline winning Star Power and living her dream as a recording star. “Wala pang nagbabago sa kanya. Just like I knew her, ganun pa rin siya ngayon, with so much blessings that are coming her way. She had been through so many singing competitions before and I believe this is her time na talaga.”

However, with success and fame also come the controversies. Since her victory, Angeline has been compared to Sarah Geronimo, and until now there are reports of a brewing rivalry between them despite the number of times that the two young singers have denied those rumors.

As a good friend to Angeline, K-La asked the people to stop comparing the former to Sarah and to put a rest on all these intrigues. “Minsan it’s really bound to happen. People will always compare you to someone else. Pero sana po we can all learn to appreciate artists for their individual selves. Mas maganda if Ate Angeline can be given the chance to prove herself and shine on her own instead of being just compared to Ate Sarah. Let’s just appreciate their own unique talent.”

K-La advised her good friend to just ignore the nasty write-ups and just continue living her dream. “Just keep going. Ate Angeline is a very good singer that’s why she’s the winner of Star Power. Whatever anyone says about her, I just hope she will just keep on doing what she loves. Patuloy ang pangarap, ha ha ha!

As for her own dream, K-La continues to explore other showbiz opportunities. She is one of the finalists of the MYX VJ Search 2011 and according to her, being the newest VJ for the MYX music channel will enable her to combine the two things she loves, and those are music and talking.

When asked if joining MYX means she is turning her back on singing, K-La quickly clarified that there’s now a plan for her and other Star Power finalists to record an album. “There’s a plan to have an album for us Star Power finalists. I’m hoping that it will push through. I’ll also be doing a stage musical so sana suporta po kayo sa akin.”

The Fil-Canadian lass is serious about her goal to be in showbiz, that’s why whatever project is offered to her, she said she is very much willing to say yes, unless if it will require her to go sexy. “Actually I’m open to trying out whatever opportunity is out there for me. Pero hindi po talaga ‘yung pa-sexy, ha ha ha! Basta anything na I can find out where I’m good at. If it’s singing, hosting, dancing, acting, kahit ano po.”

K-La added that she would also like to become an actress, but she knows she still needs to work on her Tagalog. “Acting is a dream of mine but I know I really have to learn more Tagalog talaga. I’m trying my hardest po, ha ha ha!
