Matteo Guidicelli talks about balancing his new music career and doing sports.
All set to hold his
first major solo concert MG1 at the end
of the month, Matteo Guidicelli said
he does not feel he is in a position to
give advice to other aspiring singers. “I’m just starting so it’s really nerve-wracking for me every single thing, every
single show, every single guesting, but I
just keep in mind that I’m enjoying what I’m
doing and this is my original stuff so I really want to share it with everybody,” he told Push.com.ph.
When asked how he
manages to get over being nervous and getting stage fright when performing, the
25-year-old actor said he just wants to focus
on showing his best. "I’m not over it yet (laughs). Every time I’m on stage I feel the same way all the time. It’s
just that I try to try to keep in mind
just to enjoy it and this is my original thing so I’m going to try and show my originality out there,”
As a top triathlete
as well as a performer, Matteo said he tries to have the same approach and be disciplined in whatever
field he gets into. "It’s basically
the same thing. It’s just practice makes perfect din. You just keep practicing. There’s no such thing as perfection
because each and every one of us have our own
originality and our own style. Even in
sports, we have our own style of running, we have our own style of swimming. Everyone has their own
originality so the more you do it, the
more you get comfortable doing it so I guess practice makes perfect. I guess everything comes with
preparation. You can’t go on stage and
you can’t go on a race without being prepared kasi kung half-baked ka pupunta ka sa isang event or something,
talagang alam mo it’s not going to
turn out well. So you really have to put your heart and your body and soul into something that you want to
do so you have to always completely
prepare,” he explained.
Even when it comes
to relationships, the MG1 performer makes sure to look before he leaps. "Of course. But you really
can’t prepare for a relationship, can
you? You can try but like Justin Bieber said, ‘What do you mean?’ Di
ba? (laughs). So you always ask a girl, ‘What do you mean?’ because you don’t really know where they’re
coming from, from time to time,” he admitted.
As his one-night
only concert draws near, Matteo admitted he feels the love and support even from his
friends in the triathlon community. "They’re
all going to watch and their very supportive of it and they keep texting me and they keep promoting me to help
spread the word,” he shared. For this
year, he said he has hung up his bike already and will focus on showbiz only. "The next race is
next year already. Wala na akong
karera ngayon. My teammates raced in
Bohol recently pero ako next year na,” he added.
