    6. 6:16 or 9:19 (SAME PERSON). Di eto libro. Blog ang tawag dito at kayo feeling spoiler ang title. Hello! What is admirable about this article is NOT how beautiful it was written but how it was courageous of THE writer to write about this controversial stuff especially she is a part of showbiz world! Sheezz! What a loser.

      Delete
    7. @6:16 Yes, it's common knowledge that there are many pretentious people in show business but celebrities - most especially those who are at the top - rarely point it out, much less make a lengthy blog post about it. Sige nga, name another famous celebrity who has written about the "barbie world" that is Philippine showbiz and has said that it's better to be yourself than pretend to be someone you're not. Then tell me that the blog post is not extraordinary.

  3. Unahan ko na kayo. I will fight anyone who says that Maine threw Alden under the bus with this blog post. I have seen posts like that. Seryoso po. Konting comprehension naman. The post is about staying true to yourself and not changing who you are as a person just to pander to the whims of show business – a culture prevalent in the industry. If you really want to connect the post to Alden – specifically to the Cristy F. hullaballoo - then I don’t see any negative implication at all. Was Alden being pretentious when he gave the flowers? I don’t think so. He was being his usual super nice self by extending an olive branch to the people who have spewed hate towards him (and Maine). So how could the post be about her calling Alden out for what he did?

    Take the blog post for what it is and don’t put any hidden meanings on it. It’s Maine’s stand against everyone who wants her to change who she is just so she would conform to what the showbiz industry is used to. Also, before you drag Alden into it, remember that they’re private people. They don’t reveal anything unless asked – sometimes not even then. Maine will not publicly confront Alden kung may issue siya. And to do it through a blog post? I don’t think she’s the type. Kaya bago kayo kumuda, alamin niyo muna kung saan nila ginamit yung Safeguard. K bye.

    2. Why people try to drag Alden's name in this article? Maine was referring to a certain "her", the individual that was close to her. Now, if the readers doesn't know how to differentiate "her" and "he/him" then, they might need to go back to the grammar school. Clearly, she's referring to a girl not a boy... just my 2cents...

    1. Maine, that is the price of fame. Pag sobra ang pagsikat mo, mas lalong dumadami ang haters mo. I salute you dahil hindi ka nagparetoke to please this hypocrite society. Kahit anong mabuti ang gawin mo, meron at merong masasabi sayo. Aside from c'est la vie, always remember DAMN IF YOU DO, DAMN IF YOU DON'T.

      Pero nacurious ako sinong she ang kausap niya

    2. I agree. This girl is so smart and brave. My whole fam admires her a lot. Like what Direk Joey said, she's so rare in the industry dahil matalinong bata. Everything on her blog post is on point! It should be that way. A lesson na din for today's generation.. Be yourself. People who genuinely loves you will accept you for who you are. We are not in the world to please people. Isa pa, she entered showbiz & become instantly famous. It was different, unique. She know nothing about the traditional ways in "showbiz" When she entered the industry she changed how people looked at beauty, she's both a social media queen and she's also on mainstream tv hence the title given by Boy Abunda "A superstar adopted by mainstream tv". Let the lady be who she wants to be. Everyone should think that way too. Maine is loved by the people for who she is, with all those flaws. Another unique this about her; it was the people who actually made her famous, not those tabloid writers. Let's be human in the barbie world.

  11. Well, she can afford to say that coz she shot straight up and became an instant celebrity. Other artists, besides working hard, also need "pakikisama" so they would become known and also to stay long in the business. Sad but honest truth. She wouldn't understand, sumikat agad ng walang effort, so hindi cya maka-relate.

      Kaya d ko maintindihan bakit hindi maganda ang dating ng sinulat niya sa ibang tao.

    4. Not her fault though. She became instantly famous because the people loved her for who she is. Walang PR na need. Supporters are enough.

      If your "pakikisama" means kissing the evil's a$$, then sorry. That is so wrong. Kaya di naunlad at Pinas, pa-safe ang tao. Dun lang sa nakasanayan na. Ibahin mo naman. Mag-try ka ng ibang flavor.

    5. I think you have a point and youre seeing it from a different perspective. With how she became famous, why should she still conform to the norms of the showbiz industry when she has an opportunity to be herself?

      Delete
    6. Ang "pakikisama" ay hindi ang tinutukoy ng blog ni Maine. What she is saying is, dont' change yourself so you can please others. Huwag mong baguhin ang iyong pagkatao para lang walang masabi sayo, dahil ika nga at the end of the day, ikaw din mahihirapan dahil hindi yan ang totoo mong ugali... Sa "pakikisama" naman, of course lahat naman tayo nakikisama but to a certain extent na hindi mababago ang pananaw mo sa buhay. Sabi nga ni Maine, kung mawala man ang kasikatan niya, OK lang - at least she was real and authentic - pak ganern!

      Delete
    7. She knows how to make pakisama to the people who are good to her. But she won't be a kiss ass dun sa mga haters/wlang credibilidad na tabloid writers na kahit anong gawin nya wala din namang magandang sasabihin about her. Kahit pakisamahan mo yang mga yan pag ayaw nila sayo wla kang magagawa. So why waste time and effort, deadmahin na lng. Mas madami namang nagmamahal eh.

    12. Nagiging PEOPLE-PLEASER ka kung ang PAKIKISAMA mo ay sobra na. Sa experiences ko lang from someone close to me who is a people-pleaser, medyo nakakainis din. Yong tipong kahit labag sa kalooban niya/pagod siya eh di pa rin marunong humindi, ayaw daw niya na may masabi ang iba. Pero napagsabihan ko naman din at narealized na niya na di pala maganda ang maging ganun ka palagi dahil marami din aabuso. Ako naman nakikisama ako pero alam ko limitations ko at ayaw ko na gustuhin ng tao dahil nagpipretend ako to be someone that I am not or na okay lang sa akin. Though Maine's blog is focusing more on "showbizness", but we (I) can relate to it as well.

      Delete
  12. You inspire me, Maine. You are younger than me but you know a lot about life. You are full of wisdom. I had been a people-pleaser all my life and it had given me anxiety. I'm in my late 30's and I decided to just "f***k it and live my life the way I want it." As long as you're not stepping on anyone, people's opinions about you doesn't matter because like what you said, "at the end of the day, what's matters most is how you see yourself." I love you, Maine!

  13. I really want her to publish a book. Seryoso. She gives such great insight. To think she's only 21. I love this post. Another favorite of mine from her blog is "Paano Ba." Her writings make you ponder and reflect about life.

    ReplyDelete
  14. This is what separates her from her contemporaries. She seldom says her piece but when she does, lahat natatahimik at napapareflect. This is the reason too kung bakit hinahangaan ko siya. I find her beauty and charm unique, yes. She has outstanding wit and timing for comedy, oo, pero yung pagiging insightful niya and the way she refuses to conform para lang magustuhan siya ng tao, I believe that's the reason why so many people are drawn to her. Keep it up, Maine. You're such a level headed young woman. Maigi na sa ngayong panahon ka nakapasok sa showbiz and not a year or two earlier kasi when you entered the industry, kilalang kilala mo na sarili mo and you know what you want. I'll keep praying for your success and kung meron man akong kinoconsider na "it girl" ngayon, ikaw yun. You deserve our admiration. Keep inspiring people, Maine. May God bless your awesome heart. :)

  15. We should never pressure ourselves on what other people wants to see on us. For other people it is being a brat/hardheaded, but some people will never see that we live to stand in our own life and navigate it properly without other people's approval. It is never wrong to have a different perspective in life thus, most of the influential, successful & happiest person takes risk to change the norms on their own industry. Be the "one" in this industry full of "others" in other words stay who you are because you're not robot to be mandated or controlled.

  20. Will never doubt her words. As a self-confessed fan, sa kanya lang ako maniniwala at hindi sa mga bashers at haka haka. She's too real to be in this industry and it worried me before na baka baguhin siya ng kasikatan at kainin siya eventually ng sistema just like what happened sa ibang maganda ang nasimulan sa showbiz pero nilamon ng mundong ginagalawan nila, but after reading her blog, I worry no more kasi now I'm sure that she's the real deal. Salamat sa inspirasyon, Menggay!

You may have your "stand" that way because you are on top of your game and you have your management team and PR team whether your tards will admit it or not doing "the thing you abhor for you".

      Delete
    4. I don't get your point? She might have the backing of her management team but I don't think they censor her. And if anything, it just proves that her being herself is what made her what she is today. In the world of showbusiness, Maine is saying "accept me for what I am - and if you don't, It's Ok because I'd rather be Me". That in itself is a very powerful Message to everyone. She does not want to compromise her values in exchange of Fame. In her interviews, she said that if her fame disappears, it won't bother her because she has good memories to last her a lifetime. This girl is very grounded and people have become so jaded that they accept things as they are - not realizing that there are still people out there like Maine!

      Delete
    5. Triple A, APT, and TAPE are not in the business to make the press people happy either. Their priority is their audience, the fans of their show and their artists. That's how they have stayed long in the biz, not because of the press.

      And please, Maine seems to be leading her own publicity team if there is. She posts a video/blogpost and it instantly makes waves on social media without the help of any machinery other than her fan base.

      Delete
    6. 12:53 She didn't say that she doesn't need anybody's help from showbiz. Her blog post was about being an "Orocan/Barbie" in showbiz to gain people's approval.

I don't really know kung sila na ba o kung magkakatuluyan ba sila. All I know is that they're both lucky to have crossed paths with each other in their lifetime kasi the kind of connection that they have is something rare, almost a miracle pa nga.

  31. I get where she's coming from... having a normal, peaceful, low-key life and suddenly bam! everything changes--everybody knows you, has their eyes on you, watches your every move. As a celebrity, people put you on a pedestal. They idolize you to the point of imitating you. And the thing is, people don't want their idol to have any flaws, any mistakes because why would they imitate someone else's mistakes? You get me? What I'm trying to say is that all these bashers are ALSO fans who can NOT accept that their idol failed to meet their expectations. Because guess what, they are also people, like you, like all of us.

    But this situation is already a commonplace in the showbiz industry. Unlike other celebrities who auditioned, planned, worked, dreamt of becoming a famous celebrity, they knew of the consequences of being famous. But Maine is the opposite. It was all an accident. Yes she did say that she dreamt of becoming a celebrity when she was a child but that was it. She didn't pursue it. Maine is just a person, a simple, bubbly person. Yes, she's not perfect, like all of us, and she won't try to be just to please your ungrateful mouth.

  39. That's good that she's got a good on head on her shoulder, but with that said...showbiz is showbiz. It will never change. Not everyone has the same fame that she has now. Unfortunately, some talents needs to please ppl. Not just because of showbiz, but also maybe that's how they were brought up. To care about what other ppl think. It's not healthy, but it happens. When being in showbiz is your bread and butter, some ppl will do anything to maintain that. Even if that means being a ppl pleaser and kissing a$$. That's a sad fact for a lot of talents.

    1. teh totoo cya hindi cya plastik...anong pakikisama?

      Delete
    2. 1:32 she's actually loved by people around her... so saan ang hindi pakikisama doon? wala naman siyang binastos sa pagkakaalam ko at lahat na ma meet niya maganda naman...or does she really have to go out of her way to please everyone?

      Delete
    3. Sa aking palagay yun naman ang ginagawa niya sa ngayon, ang nakikisama at d plastic. Ang ayaw lang niya siguro eh yung maraming ipinapagawa at inaasahan sa kanya nang alam niya sa sarili niyang hindi pa niya kaya at hindi bukal sa loob niyang gawin sa ngayon. Yun lang naman yata ang ibig niya pakahulugan dito.

    4. Iba ang pakikisama sa pagsisipsip, paghahabol ng mga tao lalo na yung may ayaw sayo at pagpapakitang-tao.

    5. Magaling rin nmn makisama si meng. As far as i know, wala namang nasasabing masama tungkol sa kanya lahat ng mga nakakatrabaho nya (and that's all that matters). I think patama lang to ni meng sa writer na dapat matutunan nyang mag PR (knowing maine updated yan sa mga hanash). Jusko, gusto ata nila eh si meng ang mag reach out sa kanila at bigyan ng pa havs para lang itigil yung bad write-ups tungkol sa kanya na pati pamilya eh dinadamay.Gusto rin ata eh maki party pa sa kanila. Kaloka, hindi ko ata masisikmura yon . Ok lang sana kung paminsan minsan na paninira lang. LOL . But in maine's case halos araw araw ata may bad write-up tungkol sa kanya at pati sa tv program eh sinisiraan pa. As long as nirerespeto mo sila at wala kang masamang sinasabi o ginagawa sa kanila ok na yon.

    7. Huwag kang masyadong defensive, 1:51. In general terms ang ibig sabihin ni 1:32. Wala siyang sinasabing plastik si Maine. Huwag kasing tunnel vision pagdating sa paga-idolize

    8. Sige... Pano ka makikisama sa mga taong nilait ka at ang buong pamilya mo ng walang halong kaplastikan, 1:32? Impossible dba? So imbes na makipagplastikan ka, wag na lang.

      Delete
    9. FYI po nakikisama sya, mapa fans, ordinaryong tao, kapwa artista o staff and crew. Kung di yan marunong makisama matagal ng maraming nagreklamo all over social media especially nowadays na lahat ng tao may socmed accnts at nakasunod sa bawat kilos nila ni A.

      Yung mga paimportanteng nilalang lang naman ang may reklamo.

  44. ang sarap talaga para sa isang artista na nagpapaka-totoo ka lang sa lahat. malaya ka, walang dapat halikan na judas para pilit maitago ang mga lihim na nakaraan, o di kaya ay purihin ka sa mga papel na pambalot ng tinapa.

    4. Konti o marami ang fans nararapat lang na maging totoo tayo sa ating mga sarili. Di lahat ng bagay ay kailangan sundin o sumunod ka sa agos. Di porket yun ang nakasanayan eh kinakailangan automatic yun na din ang gagawin mo. We all have the right to choose our own path, di kailangan nakadepende sa nakasanayan lahat ng gagawin sa buhay.

      Di rin naman guarantee na kung susunod sya sa agos eh totoo ang ipapakita sa kanya ng ibang tao. :-)

    5. 1:45 and 2:57, She was loved by her fans for being true to herself. Kung nag-go with the flow siya how showbiz works, she won't have many fans as she has right now. Isn't it ironic?

  48. Maine hit the nail on the head when she wrote this piece! Kudos to this girl for being fearless and saying it as it is....

    She is right - why pretend when you can make it real?

    The pretentiousness and fakery that is inherent in showbiz is what makes her down-to-earth character stand-out.

    In other words, pretentions hides the fact that they do not have anything of substance to say.

    What a refreshing insight!!!

    Face palm to all haters out there! booyaaahhhHH!!!!

  59. There's a difference between pakikisama and blind following. Show business is one of a hella crap system ... full of people well-polished outside but stinks inside. There's something wrong with the system & culture. I am so glad that Maine Mendoza chose not to to be consumed by that system, instead she defied it and spoke her mind. This girl proves that by being her true self - flawed, imperfect but striving to be better - makes her even more "human" and loved by many. You are such an inspiration to many, Maine! Keep being you! You're a good person.

  63. some said she is brave to say it because sikat xa ngayon and she didnt go thru lyk others who kiss ass just to be recognized by the network.but for me maine is just saying that the showbiz world is full of indecent act by faking and be someone you are not just to please those people who think can make you famous.Maine is ready na mawala ung fame nya as long as her individuality and values are intact.nasa tao pa din kung nasisikmura nya ba makipagplastikan at magbayad just so hindi ka sisiraan ng mga walang credibilidad na writers sa showbiz.BE REAL or be just like one of them.salute to you maine for being so brave.

  66. i get her and i agree na di natin ma wiwin lahat ng tao kahit pa nag effort tayo at kung ano pa. meron at meron talaga na hindi ka gusto. and that is life. kaya the only thing to do is be you. however, sa tingin ko hindi nag aapply masyado ito kung super maldita ka inside. sakit ka sa ulo sa lahat ng maka interact mo. though generally, yung "realness" of a person should be balanced din. always carry yourself with decency and respect towards every person and u are good to go. i think yung hindi nya like is yung super excessive na kaplastikan and doing things out of your character para to get ahead of the race. inch by inch if u participate, lalamunin ka ng system and u end up not knowing who you are anymore.

    4. 6:02 what A feels about all these, we will never know. That young man has been an enigma for me a few weeks after Aldub. Either he is too private or a man of no conviction.Has he ever replied to something that is straight to the point? It might also be that he has been too PR-trained over the years in showbiz. But while this blog is all Maine, we cannot not include Alden since he is the closest person to her in showbiz. Yes, tho we will never know what A thinks becuz we are not M, let us hope he is happy, proud, & above all respectful of Maine. ๐ŸŒบ

  72. Maine is talking about herself and her opinion. She's not telling the people in the industry to make a change. I remember Marian Rivera before was also attacked by many showbiz press for her personality like maldita, snobbed, talakera, doesn't speak English well but she didn't mind of all of them and look where she is now and how is she loved by Dingdong. I'm sure Alden and Maine understands each other and they are Happy together. They are just being themselves on how they deal with people. Yang mga tabloid writers kung ayaw niyo sa isang tao hwag niyo ng aksayahan ng panahon. Kayo naman ang nagpapansin Eh. Lalo ng Yang shriek at jobert. Akala mo gaano kalinis ang budhi Kung makapanlait. Pwe!

  73. Look, if Maine did that thing that they wanted her to do that is against her will... ang sasabihin lang ng mga tao e "ay, showbiz na si Maine." A little of her shine will be gone because that is one of the things that people love about her. Hindi siya showbiz. Admit it, you will be a little bit disappointed if she did that.

  77. well, she can say these words fearlessly kasi she can walk away from showbiz anytime she wants. mayaman siya so hindi nya kailangang makisama sa ibang tao. she's lucky but not everyone in the showbusiness is as lucky as her. may iba kailangang mag pretend so they can stay in the business kasi ito ang bread and butter nila. well kudos to her for staying true to herself. sana mapanindigan nya yan kapag lumamlam na ang kinang niya. you know fame can be addicting.

  82. Reading her post, i admit nagulat ako. For her stature, I thought she would now play it safe and not "rock the boat". But as you can see, she writes her observation with a keen eye and a truthful perception. Napa-isip tuloy ako na ang batang ito ay may sariling prinsipyo sa buhay. Sa totoo lang, anyone from showbiz who will read this post will feel the "heat" but she writes it anyway. I think Maine is a good person at heart, and what she's trying to point out is don't change so others will accept you, specially if it conflicts with your own values. Maraming tao sa showbiz na pumapasok at binabago ang sarili para sa kasikatan - Yes, sisikat ka nga, but at what expense? Ngayon kung mabait ka naman at wala kang tinatapakan na tao, then mas panatag ang loob mo at wala kang dapat ikatakot. Kung hindi ka man maging sikat, at least nagpakatotoo ka sa sarili mo. Kung magbabago ka man, it is to make yourself a better person in order to humble yourself. The Lesson to learn on this is: Don't sell yourself to the devil because it will cost more than you bargained for.
