We all have experienced a lot from our mothers, and Alex Gonzaga is no different!
During her guesting on “Magandang Buhay” today, July 15, Alex admitted that her song “Tipints” was hugely based on her experiences with Mommy Pinty, saying, "Sa YouTube kasi, laging nakikita ko, 'ah si Mommy Pinty parang mommy ko.' Natutuwa sila kasi nakaka-relate sila."
"So sabi ko, 'Gawan ko kaya ng kanta ang mom ko pero sa tingnin ko makaka-relate din iyong mga typical Filipino, lalo na iyong mga ka-edad ko kasi ganoon din ang nanay nila, kasi ang daming comments na nakikita daw nila ‘yung mommy nila kay Mommy Pinty. So, ‘yun ‘yung naisip ko,” she continued.
Alex also revealed that the song was supposed to be released on Mother’s Day, but was delayed due to her projects and commitments during the election season.
“Actually, dapat ilalabas ko talaga ‘yan [on] Mother’s Day kasi naisip ko, parang gusto ko talagang ilabas, kaya lang [noong] panahon na ‘yun, eleksyon, busy, tapos hindi niya ako mapapansin,” Alex explained.
Mommy Pinty apparently only heard the song after its final recording, when it was already slated for release.
“Pinarinig ko na sa kanya, naka-record na, wala na siyang magagawa,” Alex added.
The official music video of “Tipints” already hit 2 million views on YouTube. It is also available for streaming on Spotify.
Alex currently hosts “Pinoy Big Brother Otso” and is also a part of the sitcom “Home Sweetie Home: Extra Sweet.”
She also starred in the 2014 comedy “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin.”
