LA Aguinaldo shared how he met Troye Sivan in the flesh.
During the Pure Magic 2019 event, PUSH caught up with Filipino vlogger LA Aguinaldo where he talked about a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity of meeting Australian singer-songwriter for an intimate sit-down interview over six months ago.
Having flown to Singapore in time for the release of the 23-year-old singer’s second studio album Bloom, LA shared how he got the chance to meet the latter in the flesh.
“Basically it was through my vlogging actually. Like I was doing mostly my vlogs about my life, or you know my travels. And I’ve always dreamed like of course, interviewing celebrities. Who doesn’t wanna do that? Like you’re like Ellen or like Jimmy Fallon. Or like a late night show host. Parang naging bridge ‘yung vlogging ko sa dream ko na parang I was able to do it through YouTube,” he said.
“And this is just an amazing experience kasi nag-reach out sa akin ‘yung label ni Troye [na] MCA Music na ‘Hey LA. We wanna fly you out and meet Troye in Singapore. He’d love to meet you and sit down on an interview’ and I was like ‘Yeah for sure let’s do it.’ So it was like ugh still can’t believe it,” he added.
LA was all praises to Troye Sivan, calling him “one of the nicest people you could ever meet.”
“Troye is honestly one of the nicest people you could ever meet. Like he made me feel like I was his friend talaga na parang magkabarkada lang kami. And I think that’s his appeal talaga to his fans. Of course, you’d see his fans talaga super passionate about Troye kasi alam nilang totoong tao si Troye. And I think we could learn a thing or two from Troye na if you treat your fans like your friends, your love talaga for them is genuine. So it was so dope,” he said.
