Liza Soberano says she even gave the pop star a hug.
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.
