Jolina Magdangal blew up as an actress and a singer since the ’90s. She became one of the most sought-out celebrities during that decade. Her renowned works include certain tv series such as Ang TV and Gimik. Of course, also her movies such as Hey Babe! and the iconic Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang? In a recent revelation, she admitted what she feels about the Facebook page, Jolegend Slaydangal. She has nothing but kind words for its creator.
Jolegend Slaydangal refers to a certain Facebook page. It uses her name and photos to produce hilarious parodies and timely content.
It is not uncommon on social media platforms. Jolina declared that she was surprised about the abrupt renewed interest in her, especially on social media. She admitted this during the virtual press conference of her upcoming comedy film, Momshies Ang Soul Mo’y Akin. It was already years ago. Hence, the actress said she could not believe that even the younger generation of millennials and gen Z expressed support for her. She said,
Natuwa nga ako kasi mukha ngang bigla silang nabuhayan ng mga dugo. Tapos, yung mga iba kong nakikita parang may mga millennial na dito, may generation Z na rito. Nagulat ako na, yung gulat na nandun sa positive side, nakakatuwa naman na na-appreciate nila.
Jolegend Slaydangal gave a shout-out to the person behind this viral Facebook page. Even though she did not name the person, she said that the creator has an impressive way of thinking. She also made it clear that she was never offended by it.
The host explained,
Yung Jolegend Slaydangal, isa siyang kabataan, nung gumawa ng account na yun na ang taba nung isip niya. Ang dami niyang naiisip…minsan katawa-tawa na pero pumapatok siya. Sobrang thankful ako sa kaniya. Never akong na-offend. Sobra akong natuwa sa kaniya.
Now, on more news about her future projects, the icon joins Karla Estrada and Melai Cantiveros in a Mother’s Day film. These two actresses are her co-hosts in their tv show, “Magandang Buhay.” In the said film, it was said that they would be using her 1999 hit song “Chuva Choo Choo.”
The song was part of the soundtrack of her classic film “Hey Babe” with her then-onscreen partner Marvin Agustin. According to the actress, the song will have a different take on the film with more appropriate lyrics about momshies. She said,
Yung Chuva Choo Choo, ito ang naging theme song nito kasi kinanta dito ni Jolene, kahit lumipat na siya sa karakter ni Ate Karla parang ito pa rin ang bonding song nila. Thankful ako na napili ito.
The movie will be streaming starting May 28 on KTX.ph, iWantTFC, Sky PPV, Cignal PPV, and TFC IPTV.
A person born between the generations of Millenial and Gen Z. I believe I have a fresh take on things, but can still stay true to my roots. I write anything in Pop Culture as long as it suits my taste (if it doesn't, it was only for work). I love to wander around the cosmos, then come back with a story to publish.
