found it on twitter, came here. ^^

so, lolit solis seems to see some calamity in having to accept a new manager with charice, when mentioning the fact in one sentence with the ongoing flood. just wondering, if this is the latest sophistication in modern journalism... ;)

anyway, as I like charice very much, just hoping the change will push her career in a direction she desires.
I would like to see her perform in the philippines often also in the future, as I have to watch _all_ her performances on youtube anyway.
also I hope that x-factor will have more positive impact than negative. I saw these franchise shows inviting music celebrities into their jury, but then deliberately trying to make it a zero-sum game for everyone except the TV and the license giver. means, eventually they take away the popularity that they create.

I'm not surprised Grace Mendoza was fired. I saw on YouTube that she left Charice alone being interviewed by a female Filipino reporter who was rummaging through Charice's purse and even pulling out dollar bills and business cards during the interview. Also, with the Glee misfire and the report that Charice was avoiding media men upon arrival at the airport, it was left to Charice's mom to issue an explanation. Aren't that supposed to be the job of the manager (Mendoza)? Well, in fairness to Mendoza, some local media people who have the attitude of being the high and mighty, might have just precipitated her departure.

I think Filipino reporters for the most part expect Charice to be a kid all the time... saying po and respectful to them .. Well guys, the kid is all grown up ! If you have kids of your own you know they're going to long for their own independence one day!! What do you think??

the purse raid was a popular show format, inspired by american prank shows. so in the eyes of the public, it was legit, but charice need not necessarily like it, and perhaps it might have been negotiated more diligently, to avoid misunderstandings. it's another example that cultural differences shouldn't be neglected.

not only some reporters and their bosses might want charice to stay the baby singer, but it's possibly a matter of emancipation (social, caste, etc.) that some forces might dislike to see happen.

If one has to explain the shabby treatment of Charice by Filipino reporters as being a “cultural” trait, then it’s tempting to say that there is a culture of mediocrity in the Philippines.

Outside the Philippines, whether in Asia, Europe, or North America, the news media have always been respectful toward Charice. Why is it that she receives rotten treatment in her home country despite the honor and recognition she brings to this country?

One prominent Filipino journalist even find fault in her “American twang” that is “irritating” as if speaking English like a native speaker is not laudable but an object of scorn. Is this person the best model of Philippine journalism?

Another individual, who waves a “nationalistic” flag, has loudly expressed the misguided belief that artists like Charice or Arnel Pineda must sing in Filipino while performing abroad. Why isn’t he telling Lea Salonga to sing Filipino in Broadway?

Something is very anomalous and disturbing about this apparent display of fake nationalism and mediocrity that is viral in the Philippine news media today.

Courtney Blooding, Charice's manager, recently chided PI for making Jessica Sanchez the greatest thing since sliced bread when Jessica is an American, not Pinoy. Courtney made the point that Jessica was born and raised in the US and does not even speak Tagalog. She wanted to know why the PI had elevated Jessica when there was so much local talent right there in the Philippines.

I think it's all getting overly complex. others may find less polite words.
respecting occam's razor must be very boring.

jessica is absolutely great, and has perfect looks. the domestic TV who adopts her must have affiliation with FOX.
naturally, when fox is also a political weapon, the deal will have a component that creates positive image for the greatness of the USA and her artists. the american artist will be hyped, and the subcultural context will be used to pull in that domestic broadcaster, and allow it to gain something for their own also.
in every country the effect is to make the local artists appear less bright. the outlet has to be local forces, which then creates the notorious, confusing cognitive dissonance.
filipino jury, filipino journalists.

the outcome, anticipated, is inner conflict. but only, until people really get it.

who would think the makers of american media (idol is a deal between media and content biz) aren't experts, in making colonial mentality their tool? when their forefathers have deliberately created sure more than half of that disease in the first place!
everything american is better per definitionem, and immigrants will confirm strongly (or they aren't receiving citizenship). very self-adjusting.

but this does not define all americans.
in analogy, a bunch of politicized journalists does not define the philippines.
the philippines don't hate charice.
the mad guy originally from egypt made a sick video. a bunch of political islamists now is telling america hates muslims. that's about the medieval way of thinking.

the real question is, WHO elevated jessica with what intent?
average people just are happy that she is that good and from the typical mentality are "proud" of her because they see some group-connection with her origin.
but eventually it is all "idol". it is the benefit of that show and its background. they create opinion and make it a commodity.
idol has huge toolbox and capacity in dealing with local press.
some local media get tricked into the whole thing because there is something spectacular to write about.
others are actually affiliated via the backroom and some fees and services. there might be a joint venture situation.
the rest of the media is strongly opposing and hating on the LOCAL idol artists.

sad to say, but courtney is trapped in the scheme.
as a non-filipino she is telling filipinos to prefer charice over jessica because she is more filipino. while colonial mentality victims are preferring jessica because she is more american.
the normal, modern person just would make it a matter of taste, and perhaps prefer the younger, fresher act which is the regular way in today's pop business.

Courtney is not putting Charice above Jessica. Her point was that filipinos seem to prefer western talent(yes Jessica is half pinay) over local talent. As it was Charice was not accepted by her countrymen until she was accepted by Americans first. Courtney has a front row seat to the X-Factor and is just amazed at the talent paraded in front of her. Courtney can't understand the buzz over Jessica when the Philippines has a virtual gold mine of homegrown talent.

>> Courtney can't understand the buzz over Jessica when the Philippines has a virtual gold mine of homegrown talent.

it's because it makes no sense in a limited economy. only a few will become rich. why bother.
BUT
when the filipino top artists, charice among them, collaborate and push the government to do what US government is doing (very complex and partially clandestine), then they can sell local talent to other countries in a way to become relevant in trade balance. don't think of selling to the US. you will sell to "china towns" and that's it. sell to poorer countries, like the US do!

Filipino mentality to say the least has Not Improved with time..leading journalists are Not of Help either..the less social traits, graces and tastes the common people have, the more control the so called social elites have - they do not want to change that.. So, what happens? Philippines remain a third world nation full of envy & hatred over their more successful kababayans who were once a part of them..Sad, Sad..

plz correct me - doesn't middle class grow? is everyone with a facebook account upper class?
isn't there a difference to haiti, aceh, somalia? or do squatters still grow faster than middle class?
greece is the same. but we have a point in history where
a) kakisto-greece becomes impossible - either improvement or total war infecting all EU.
b) improvement in greece will connect 3rd world because the perpetrators of quagmire are the same people.
pinoy overlords cannot exist that size without support by chinese plus support by western elite (like bilderbergers).
make rizal famous in greece and they will improve there. this will pay back well.
why? because filipinos are the only ones in the world who understand in the first place that the mentality is a product of colonial lords.
I think it is the weapons and the poverty. only fear keeps people from improving. we must make it impossible that lords and apparatchiks can sabotage peer-to-peer business between citizens in the poor regions and any business or customer elsewhere in the world. vandana shiva from india might be helpful.
the government needs more tourism. filipinos must enforce quality tourism rather over "ballermann" (ibiza, mallorca, phuket ...). no one could argue against this. quality tourists don't look the other way. they will enforce improved quality of governance.
plus, it is impossible to reduce education. the level is high enough that rural people can learn IT and languages and behavior in foreign culture (because dependency on OFW). they can start businesses on their own.
add to this, that the western crisis will reduce opportunity in OFW jobs. therefor it is rational that OFW people consider all the above and encourage everyone to create global business connections on their own, from within PH. the west has no choice than to support this. bingo - growing middle class.
so that's just one layout of what might be possible.
