Team RISE made history this week with its first-ever episode of "We Rise Together Aftershow,” a podcast where RISE artists, together with DJ Jhai Ho, share their takeaways after every "We Rise Together” episode.
On the November 16th episode entitled “#WRTwithMaymay Aftershow,” DJ Jhai Ho, Anthony Jennings, and Daniela Stranner huddled to chat over how celebrities handle their personal problems while being professional and how they deal with bashers in general, reflecting particularly on Maymay Entrata’s journey to becoming the empowered woman that she is now.
Anthony candidly shared his own experience on how personal issues can interfere with his work as an artist.
“Sa mismong set naba-block ako, like biglang nawawala ‘yung lines ko… kasi parang may iniisip pa akong ibang bagay eh,” he revealed.
DJ Jhai further weighed in on the matter: “Kasi hindi mo rin naman mapipigilan eh ‘yung nararamdaman mo, dahil at the end of the day, we are human, mapa-artista man o hindi. May ilang tao ang nakakapag-pretend na wala lang ‘to, kaya ko ‘tong lagpasan, dedma ako sa isyu na ‘to… siguro kaya maraming mga celebs, maraming mga artista ang talagang ‘pag alone time, alone time talaga.”
Team RISE agreed that Maymay is the epitome of an artist who has grown more open and free to speak her mind instead of tiptoeing around issues linked to her. They observed that this kind of attitude is worth lauding in an industry where bashing almost always comes with the job.
Daniela offered her own perspective, saying, “Pag may bashing o merong mga hate comments, dinededma ko sila, hindi ko binabasa, hindi sila pinapansin. I have my side of my story, I have my truth, kung anuman ‘yung lumalabas dun bahala na silang mag-isip-isip kasi you can’t please everyone.”
Anthony has a similar kind of approach to petty comments, but he also mentioned that whenever possible, he takes them as a form of constructive criticism.
As for the pressures related to Daniela and Anthony’s up-and-coming love team, Daniela said that she believes in “separating personal lives from work.”
