Because of her debut album To The Moon and Back, Alexa Ilacad said she will be busy this year promoting it before her next acting project. “I’m going to start having mall shows again for my album and I think we’re going to start taping our new teleserye under Dreamscape. I just finished grade 11 so I’m moving up na,” she shared during the launch of the SM Beauty Pro Card this month in Makati city.
The 17-year-old Star Magic talent said it’s not true her longtime love team with Nash Aguas has already broken up. “No naman, parang siguro nag-break lang kami to fulfill other tasks and si Nash kasi nag-ka-college siya so naging busy siya sa school. Ako din. Kasi wala ng home school for senior high. So ayun medyo naging busy na rin kami. And walang nabibigay na project pa before kaya hindi rin kami masyado visible sa TV but we do guestings and sometimes nag-mo-mall show rin kami together. So hindi naman mag-sa-stop ang NLex, break lang,” she explained.
Apart from their respective studies, Alexa admitted they are also very busy focusing on their new albums with Nash still preparing for his launch this year. “Ngayon kasi meron kaming dalawa na albums na separate so medyo nag-fo-focus kami dun. Lalo na sila mag-lo-launch pa lang. Eh ako continuous yung mall shows ko. Pero babalik kami for taping pang-teleserye ulit,” she added.
Off camera, Alexa says her friendship with Nash is still the same because of their priorities. “Actually we’re taking it really, really slow. Yung ganun. Kasi sobrang yung focus ko talaga nandito sa singing and acting ko and I spend all of my time for that. So wala talaga akong panahon pa kahit gusto ko hindi talaga. Kumbaga uuwi ako pagod na, mag-aasikaso pa ako ng boyfriend? Siguro next time na lang and okay naman he understands. And siya din yung focus niya is to provide for his family and sobrang good yun and understandable. So super taking it slow and wala naman reason para magmadali kasi 17 lang ako, siya 18. Mahaba pa tatakbuhin nun,” she explained.
To their many fans, Alexa had this message about NLex. “Yung mga fans namin they’re very consistent sa pag-ti-tweet nila, sa pag-su-support nila kahit pa naka-break kami ngayon sa projects so I’m very thankful. Let’s just all be patient kasi it will come naman talaga. Siguro we can give chance to others muna. Hindi naman kami walang projects ngayon. We have our own albums and malay nila one day magkaroon kami ng mall show together. Our teleserye is actually coming so I hope they wait for it,” she said.
