VIDEO | Miss Germany trends on Twitter as users react after video of her saying "none of us voted for Miss Philippines" in post-Miss Universe (2015) interview surfaced.

Screenshot: Youtube user Mea Hiroshima

A controversial statement by Miss Germany Sarah Lorraine has backfired with netizens on Twitter bringing her pageant title up the trends after she revealed in an interview that "none of us voted for Miss Philippines, I am so sorry to say that," when she was asked why they rushed to Miss Colombia's aid after her crown was taken from her rather than congratulated Miss Philippines during the coronation night of the Miss Universe 2015.


She furthered, "I really couldn't believe it. I was so upset. For me (she was robbed) as the real winner. I was very happy for Miss Colombia because she really deserved it. But I'm really not happy with the result and so are the other girls. I'm sorry to say it."

Check out the video of Miss Germany's response below.

Looks like someone's going to be missed for a while.

Just a few hours ago, Ed Sheeran, the popular singer-songwriter behind hit songs Give Me Love, Photograph, and Thinking Out Loud, has announced that he is "taking a break" from social media on his Instagram account.

He detailed in his Instagram post, which now has 387 thousand likes, that he has found himself "seeing the world through a screen and not my eyes," so he is taking a break from phone, emails and all social media for now. He further said that he is "taking the opportunity of not having to be anywhere... to travel the world and see everything I missed."

A photo posted by @teddysphotos on

He also confirmed via his Instagram post that his third album is "on its way and is the best thing I have made thus far".

With over 16 million Twitter and 5.5 million Instagram followers, Sheeran is hugely one of the artists to successfully roam the world. He has just finished his world tour of his second album X in Auckland, New Zealand which became number one in the UK, Australia and the US charts, was nominated for album of the year at the Grammy, and won the Brit award for the same category.

VIDEO | Marian Rivera, Dingdong Dantes arrival disrupts long voter registration line in QC Hall

A netizen has uploaded a clip showing how most Filipinos tend to forget their problems in the short run when (possibly unintended) distractions (e.g. celebrities) get into the scenario. In this case, Sandro Del Rosario detailed what happened while he was registering as a first time voter in Quezon City Hall.

I was just going to register as a voter "peacefully" but then this happened... DingDong Dantes and Marian Rivera arrive...
Posted by Sandro Del Rosario on Thursday, October 22, 2015

Video Source: Facebook user Sandro Del Rosario

The apparent problem here was the long line that was somehow irritating some of the registrants. The arrival, however, of celebrity couple Marian Rivera and Dingdong Dantes changed the atmosphere. People flocked to know what was happening and eventually, everything turned to chaos. The queue just disappeared at an instant and the people were just okay with that.


Definitely, this would not have happened if the guards, as per cam time, secured the line before giving vehicle pass to the couple. It's not Marian and Dingdong who's to blame for such case because they just wanted to vote as well, while there clearly was no other way for them to register as lining up personally would have caused more commotion with the graveness increasing the longer that they stayed there. It's mostly the people who should be criticized since they just wanted an easy escape out of the system they were in, whether they just got carried away or not.

Based on his experience, Del Rosario ended with three statements. One, Filipino are far too easily starstrucked. Two, they seem to forget all their problems when they see a celebrity. And three, while privileged people are given special treatment, most of the Filipino "masa" unconsciously and willingly subjugate themselves.
Furthermore, the video just shows that status symbol really has a lot of influence in Philippine society and that influence is a key piece in achieving a more robust, equitable, and sustainable development.

SPOTTED | These celebrity sketches look like actual BnW photos!


Marian Rivera photo sketch by Hans Alcanzare
Look! Hans Alcanzare, the artist behind the viral charcoal photo sketches of Maine Mendoza aka Yaya Dub and Alden Richards who make up the AlDub love team, had  actually shown some cool skills two years earlier. The 23-year-old St. Louis University graduate, who's now an urban planner and a civil engineer, did impress a lot with his own sketch of Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera.

A sketch of Marian Rivera with artist Hans in one of the photo tiles.
At just one glance, one could easily see Dingdong Dantes' wife in shades of black and white. It's amazing because one might mistaken it for a BnW photo, but err not, it's actually crafted by the same brilliant mind who made photo sketches of local celebrities like Anne Curtis and Megan Young to international stars like Andrew Garfield, Kim Soo Hyun, Johnny Depp, Taylor Swift, Angelina Jolie, and Robert Downey Jr.! Check out his incredible works below. Kudos Hans!

SPOTTED | A mysterious floating city over China?


A video clip on Youtube showing a mysterious floating city (or resemblance of such) in the clouds above Fushan, China has attracted thousands of curious viewers and mystery hunters. Is this a holographic image made by some group of technology enthusiasts? Is this a government project being tested? Are we seeing the future---the parallel universe, perhaps? Is this just a cloud that is processed by our brains as an optical illusion of a city? Or is this even true?


Video Source: Youtube user Rajesh Parameshwaran Iyer

My gut feel says this is more likely either a man-made hoax or simply a cloud. If indeed hundreds of spectators have seen this floating city over Fushan, there should have been more clips of these (at least more than one) to show that this did happen. But, as of the moment, only one and just one clip is present online. Had there been more clips from various angles and had there been more hype from international media, this could have been more legit rather than just a plain noise-maker.

If indeed this did happen and more videos go online, then some mix of science and technology must be behind this. Perhaps an ominous cloud that just appears like a floating city? Or perhaps it's just trickingo our eyes? What do you think

#AlDUb | Is AlDub the hottest love team in the country?


Image Source: ThePhilippinePride.com
Happening on October 24, "Aldub - Sa Tamang Panahon," which is touted to be Eat Bulaga's biggest show in its 36-year history, may just show proof of the intense power of AlDub's appeal and the solid support of AlDub Nation, a diverse group of fans worldwide. More than 30,000 tickets have already been sold through TicketWorld for AlDub's grand fans day.

Meanwhile, competitor It's Showtime filled the 16,500-seater Smart Araneta Coliseum during its 6th anniversary kick-off special last September 27 when it fielded ABS-CBN's three biggest love teams as a sign of unity within the station. However, this event could just be dwarfed by AlDub's most awaited and talked about celebration. With this in mind, does this indicate that AlDub is the hottest love team in town?

Recently, Maine Mendoza's and Alden Richards' Twitter accounts were revealed as the fastest growing profiles for last week.

The proceeds of Lola Nidora's announced special Bayanihan day will be used to fund AlDub libraries in the country. Looks like AlDub's influence could just bring about change in the country as a whole. It is hoped that the phenomenal love team uses its sprawling influence to help transform the Philippine youth landscape and instill more values (outside morality) to our society in its entirety.

Last May, the Philippine Arena welcomed 30,000 attendees to the Katy Petty Prismatic World Tour concert. For the record, the highest number of attendees achieved by the arena is 43,624, a Guinness World record in both Largest Attendance for a Film Screening and the Largest Attendance for a Film Premiere categories, for the INC's Felix Manalo story. In October last year, more than 50,000 spectators attended the Philippine Basketball Association's opening ceremony which was the first commercial and non-INC event conducted in the arena.

The Philippine Arena is the world's largest indoor stadium located in Bulacan, Philippines.

#AlDub | 5 Reasons Why AlDub is the Most Popular Love Team in the Philippines Today


Image Courtesy: GMA Network, Eat Bulaga

Before, it was only Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo as the KathNiel tandem. Then, Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano came in with their LizQuen partnership, which was then followed by James Reid and Nadine Lustre with their JaDine team-up. However, there is this one extremely popular Kapuso love team that just matches the three love teams of the Kapamilya network – AlDub.

Why is that so? Here are five possible reasons that explain why AlDub is the most popular (and most supported) love team to date.

1. Its related hashtags have dominated Twitter-verse and most of the online world.

Image Courtesy: Rappler

On September 5, the first actual on-stage encounter between AlDub’s halves Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza (aka Yaya Dub) rocked the whole of Twitter-verse causing entertained netizens to score 5.807 million #ALDUBBATTLEForACause tweets!

On September 12, AlDub in its Kalyeserye raked in 6,409,500 tweets for #ALDUBTheAbduction. It was thought to be one of the highest and ceiling point for the number of tweets associated to a love team, but critics were wrong. On September 19, 12.125 million #ALDUBMostAwaitedDate tweets were generated. It was one big face slam to competing show It’s Showtime’s #ShowtimeMagPastillas which only reached approximately 500,000.

But the netizen support was not to be joked upon, on September 26, 25.652 million tweets (yes, you’re reading that right!) #ALDubEBforLOVE tweets were made, closing in on 2015’s most tweeted topic which is the Super Bowl XLIX. Terrific!

Isn’t the number of mentions on Twitter, not yet considering the fact that it broke the world record for the highest number of tweets generated in a day, one TITANIC evidence of AlDub’s popularity? And there’s just more to that as both AGB Nielsen and Kantar TV ratings firms have reported a widening ratings gap between the rival noontime shows Eat Bulaga and It’s Showtime. This just proves the viewer-enticing power of AlDub.

2. AlDub won awards just a few months after its unexpected breakout!

Well, on October 11, Wally Bayola (a.k.a. Lola Nidora), Maine Mendoza, Alden Richards, and TAPE Productions were recognized in the 1st Catholic Social Media Awards which was organized by church-based organizations Youth Pinoy and Areopagus Communications Inc. for "promoting Filipino Christian values and virtues." The awarding ceremony was commenced within the 4th Catholic Social Media Summit, a two-day event with a goal of teaching Catholics how to use social media responsibly and to use it to promote good moral principles.

Last September, AlDub also received the Most Popular Breakout Loveteam award in this year’s EdukCircle Awards.

Now the question is, has there been any love team in the past to have received such awards? It’s probably one of the reasons why AlDub fans stay hooked on to Eat Bulaga’s Kalyeserye episodes, aside from the fact that Yaya Dub and Alden just have it all – the chemistry and the GMRC hehe. They definitely embody what good role models to the youth should be.

3. AlDub has a lot of loud supporters all across the globe from all walks of life!

Every love team has its solid foundation of supporters, but not this much. And when we say this much, we mean THIS much. Watch this exclusive video by GMA News and Public Affairs. This phenomenal love team has taken the Filipino community by storm!

4. AlDub’s simplistic, values-oriented approach and love-blended charisma even beats ABS-CBN’s three biggest love teams combined.

When the network ratings war was brought to another level, from mainstream to alternative media (Twitter and Facebook), competitor It’s Showtime stepped up its game to counter the rising star of GMA as it’s probably that the Kapamilya Network was determined to smash head-on with the AlDub fame. On September 26, two big events took place: National Pabebe Day on one side versus It’s Showtime Kapamilya Day: The ANIMversary Kick-off. And guess what happened? Your guess is as good as ours. J

5. Alden and Maine are undeniably popular as a team and as reel (and possible real) halves!





The love team can boast of a good following as seen in their great commercials. When sponsors trust you and your appeal to the public, they’d just go after you. Recently, Alden and Maine were both featured in commercials for McDo, Talk n’ Text, Zonrox and Bear Brand.



Wala nang hihigit pa sayo! #LiniZpamore with Alden and Maine. Kikiligin ka sa sulit ng Zonrox PLUS thick bleach. P16.10 lang!

Don’t forget Maine’s 555 sardines commercial and Alden’s exposure in magazine Inside Showbiz. Don’t forget Alden’s album hitting Billboard Music’s Top 10 Weekly World Albums this October and entering the Itunes’ Philippines chart last September!

BONUS: Even Kapamilya employees do the Pabebe Wave popularized by AlDub!

From Judy Ann Santos and Jhong Hilario to Kapamilya black box sales reps and staff, the AlDub fever hasn’t subsided. It’s too hot right now, even Kapamilya stars have been infected by this craze.
