Daniel Padilla on his newfound fame: 'Dapat chill lang ako'


070712-daniel-main.jpgAfter receiving a gold record award for his debut album, Daniel Padilla revealed that his next target is to sell a total of 150,000 units for him to get a diamond record award. But in spite of his successful venture in the music industry, the young actor insisted that singing is more of a hobby for him. “Hindi ko nga po in-expect na magkakaalbum ako e. Hindi ko rin naman talaga gustong kumanta. E wala po e, kailangan po. Hindi ko naman nararamdaman na isa na akong ganap na singer. Ilagay na lang natin sa pagiging hobby ang pagkanta ko,” he said in an interview with Push.com.ph.

Daniel further shared that he got his talent for singing from both his parents Rommel Padilla and Karla Estrada. Incidentally, the two have had the chance to make a comeback in showbiz ever since Daniel started making headlines as a promising young actor. To which he humbly replied, “Pero dati naman po, kahit hindi pa ako artista may proyekto pa rin si Papa. Pero kung ganon po niya tinitignan yun, gusto ko lang din magpasalamat sa mga tao na nagbigay ng oportunidad kina Mama at Papa na umarte ulit.”

As for those who are saying that he’s the most bankable teen star to date, Daniel maintained that he’d rather focus on being a better actor than be overwhelmed with such praises. “Hindi ko naman nararamdaman masyado yun [na hot star ako ngayon]. Hindi ko po ipinapasok sa utak ko na sikat ako. Dapat chill lang ako,” he beamed.
