DANIEL PADILLA Says He Is KATHRYN BERNARDO's "Frontliner Ng Pag-ibig"
Daniel Padilla and Moira Dela Torre's Himig Handog 2019 duet "Mabagal" is nominated at the MYX Awards 2020 in three categories: Song of the Year, Mellow Video of the Year, and Collaboration of the Year!
During the live nominations announcement, Daniel shared his reaction upon learning the news. "Masaya lang ako sa inabot nung, yung nga, yung ginawa namin ni Moira. Yung kantang ginawa namin kasama siyempre si Dan [Tañedo] yung writer namin. I'm just very happy sa naabot nung kanta. Well, eto na. Eto na ang pangarap na natupad."
When VJ Robi asked DJ how he and real-life sweetheart Kathryn Bernardo (who also appears in the "Mabagal" music video) are holding up during quarantine, he said: "Ako, tamang frontliner ng pag-ibig lang ako kay Kathryn, pare. Papunta-punta lang ako doon, padala-dala ng supplies. I-ch-check ko rin sila kung kamusta na ang bahay, 'Naka-lock na ba ng pinto?'" He jokingly added, "At kausapin lang yun mga guwardiya na, 'Hoy, walang bisita ah. Walang papapasukin.'"
In her recent vlog, Kath opened up about how she overcame her insecurites because of him. Here's what Daniel had to say: "Kasi, for me, it's... nakakatawa lang kung paano ginagawang big deal ng mga tao yung mga sa tingin nila for them is flaws, you know. Actually, parang it's kinda stupid kasi kapag sa'tin, kapag different eh mali, diba? Eh ganun ang tingin ng mga tao eh so napakababaw ng bagay na yun."
VJ Robi later cracked a joke and congratulated Daniel for being the sole nominee for Jowa of the Year! "Oh nice! Kampeon na 'ko diyan tol. Champion na ako diyan," Daniel said.
