Liza Soberano shares how she met her idol Selena Gomez


080316-LizaSoberano_main.jpgDolce Amore star Liza Soberano talked about meeting international pop star Selena Gomez during the singer’s Revival Concert tour in Manila last July 31. 


“Sobrang cute lang kasi nandoon ako tapos nag-aantay lang po ako. Tapos nahihiya kasi ako lumapit tapos sabi niya, ‘Can I get a hug?’ so lumapit ako tapos hinug ko siya. Sabi ko, ‘I love you so much,’ tapos sabi niya sa akin, ‘You’re beautiful, babe,’” she happily shared.

Liza also explained her side as to why she responded to a basher who said that she is not a real fan of Selena. The young actress narrated, “Natatawa lang ako because they’re getting mad at me because I saw Selena. Parang it doesn’t make sense why are you getting mad because I’m happy, di ba? So wala lang, pinatulan ko lang kasi sabi niya, ‘fake fan.’ Natatawa lang ako so sinabi ko hindi ako fake fan kasi dati pa lang, I was a huge Jelena fan, especially Selena kasi mas una naman siyang nakilala kaysa kay Justin Bieber. I would watch all of her shows (like) Wizards of Waverly Place and then her movies, and then talagang I would buy all her albums. You can even ask my fans.”

Meanwhile, Liza also expressed her happiness as the new face of international cosmetics brand Maybelline in the Philippines. “I’m just really happy that all these blessings are coming in at saka syempre excited ako because this is a huge make-up brand. I’m happy to be a part of it,” she said.
