After turning 18 last June 1, Jayda Avanzado said that becoming legally an adult is a big turning point in her life that will come with a lot of changes.
“Siguro number one talaga yung pagiging independent especially sa panahon na ‘to. Let’s say sa trabaho you are limited to going by yourself or isa lang yung kasama niyo. Madalas pagdating sa trabaho hindi ko nakakasama yung magulang ko. But at the same time, ganun ako matututo sa buhay and yan talaga yung ini-instill nila sa akin. Yung pagiging independent at kaya mo yung sarili mo kahit anong mangyari,” she shared during her launch as a new Rise Artists Studio.
The new Rise Artists Studio singer, who recently launched the music video for her new song “Malabong Usapan (MU)”, admitted that even though she is now old enough to date, she will still listen to the guidance of her celebrity parents Dingdong Avanzado and Jessa Zaragoza.
“Yung parents ko kasi saktong strikto sila pagdating sa bagay na ganun. Hindi sila yung helicopter parenting kumbaga. Sa akin it’s really more about I guess knowing your priorities. Yun talaga yung pinapaalala nila sa akin and sa akin hindi talaga ako nagmamadali pagdating sa pag-ibig. Para sa akin, pagdating ng panahon, darating naman si Mr. Right eh. Hihintayin ko na lang siya (laughs). Ngayon tututukan ko muna sarili ko,” she explained.
Jayda said that just like her new song, she won’t stand to be in a relationship with no labels or an M.U. “Honestly, kung usapang MU, siguro hindi sila papayag kasi hindi rin ako papayag ng MU. Hindi ako papayag sa MU. Pag ganun na, dapat may label na,” she added.
For her birthday this year, the Star Magic artist enjoyed a simple celebration at home with family. She shared her simple birthday wish for everyone.
“Sana talaga umayos na yung mundo. Sana, in a way, we get back to that sense of normalcy for all of us and we can continue doing our passion and what we love. Siguro dahil nagsisimula ako sa bagong chapter ng buhay ko, sana more blessings pa dumating sa buhay ko in all aspects in terms of career and personal life,” she says.
When asked if she would ever consider a collaboration or onscreen partnership with fellow singer Darren Espanto, Jayda said she will trust ABS-CBN to decide what would be better for her career. “I think that’s a conversation I’ve yet to have with my management in terms of that specific topic. Pero sa akin talaga, kung sino ang mamamataan ng management, who they deem na tama para sa project na yun, bukas ako dun and I trust my management which is Rise Artists Studio and Star Magic,” she said.
