As a granddaughter of the OPM singer known as “Asia’s Queen of Song” Pilita Corrales, Janine Gutierrez considers her lola (whom she lovingly refers to as “mamita”) as a living icon on and off screen. She shared how much she loves her 85-year-old grandmother in her Instagram post last November 7.

She wrote, “I spent a good amount of my childhood in Mamita’s walk-in closet trying on her pvc heels and hiding behind her gowns. I remember the smell as I type this. And I also want to cry a little bit. When I got big enough to fit into her clothes, every time I would visit, she’d give me handfuls. Lahat naman daw bagay sa’kin. (Yes, biased talaga siya. She also thinks I sing well, which confirms her bias.) I love her so much and feel so lucky to have her in my life. She’s been the most generous person, even to this day agreeing to do stupid vlogs with me. I love you mamita. Don't forget to watch my latest vlog now up on my YouTube channel JanineGutierrezPH.”
