Kathryn Bernardo denies 'tampuhan' with Miles Ocampo


090314-kath_main.jpgAfter the success of her movie She's Dating the Gangster, Kathryn Bernardo said she is happy to finally have the time to focus on her new music career starting with a debut album which features six songs with bonus tracks including a duet with Daniel Padilla. “Natapos ko na siya actually nung isang week lang at ngayong week na ito mag-shu-shoot na kami ng album cover. Tutok talaga ako dito so binigay ko talaga yung 101% ko dito sa album na ito so sana abangan niyo at magusuhan niyo,” she shared.

Kath said although she never thought of herself as a singer, she decided it was time to pursue her other talents. “Of course ilang years na ako sa teleserye, ganyan. Parang gusto ko rin maging open sa iba ibang mga puwede kong gawin like ‘pag may chance sa hosting or sa singing, hindi ka lang sa isang genre,” she admitted.

Kath said she has a wide range of musical influences from both here and abroad. “Yung mga gusto ko talaga si Taylor Swift, of course si Ariana Grande, mga ganyan. Nakaka-inspire yung mga ka-age ko na international so marami rin dito sa local like si Sarah Geronimo, at si ate Yeng Constantino so madami rin akong gusto sa kanila talaga,” she explained.

Another thing she is excited about is the MEGA magazine cover she shot in South Africa along with fellow Star Magic artists Julia Barretto, Maja Salvador, and Erich Gonzales whom she says she got to know better during their short trip. “Actually nung nag-South Africa, before that nag-London kami ni Julia so dun parang nagka-bonding kami with Enrique Gil. Nagpunta kami ng theme park tapos nag-roller coaster kami whole day and then medyo bitin yung sa London so kami ni Julia nag-bond rin kami sa South Africa with the giraffes, ganyan (laughs). Si Julia hyper (laughs) and very energetic siguro na pag kasama mo siya hindi ka talaga ma-bo-bored kasi very active, energetic, ganyan. Actually tinanong nga niya ako nun kung puwede ako manuod ng movie pero palaging nagkakataon may schedule ako kaya hindi ako nakakasama. So pag may time of course, with Ate Maja (Salvador) and Erich (Gonzales) na-develop talaga yung friendship namin nung South Africa,” she shared.

As two of the Kapamilya network's top teen actresses, Kath said she would be open to working with Julia in a project if there was an opportunity to do so. “Hindi naman napag-uusapan pero kung bibigyan ng chance why not di ba? Kahit naman sinong isama sa akin open naman ako dun,” she said.

Kath said she is also excited about the Pangako Sa ‘Yo remake. “Eh di wow grabe, sobrang saya talaga kasi parang lahat tayo alam yung Pangako Sa ‘yo, walang taong hindi nakapanuod nun. Bata pa lang ako nun and kung mabigyan ako ng chance na gawin yun sobrang saya nun gawin and something yun mga classic na teleserye so sobrang thankful ko,” she said.

Another issue Kath wanted to clarify was her rumored rift with longtime friend in showbiz Miles Ocampo. The two have been close since they started their careers as kiddie talents of Goin' Bulilit. Many netizens noticed that the two have not been interacting or posting photos together on their social media accounts for a while now. “Wala naman, feeling ko akala lang ng mga tao yun kasi hindi kami nagkikita na masyado, kasi nga nag-su-school siya, meron siyang Home Sweetie Home, LUV U, so medyo busy siya and busy din ako. Pati si Julia Montes hindi kami nagkikita-kita. Pero wala namang issue. ‘Pag may time talaga we make sure naman bibigyan namin ng time yung isa't isa pero wala kaming away or anything. Kasi hindi na rin naman ako masyado active sa ganyan pero ngayon tina-try ko naman maging active. And nami-misintrpret lang siguro ng mga tao pero wala naman,” she said.

The 18-year-old actress said she and Miles don't even see the need to talk about the issue because they both know it is not true. “Actually kahit hindi naman namin pag-usapan nakikita ko naman sa Twitter or sa lahat ng yan pero hindi naman kasi namin pinapansin pag ganun kasi alam naman namin na hindi totoo,” she said.
