Jed Madela on detractors: Let everybody speak their mind-A A +A
Thursday, October 24, 2013
SINGER Jed Madela disregarded comments made by some on his gender preference and said all the intrigues are just part of the entertainment business.
The Kapamilya singer said it's not the first time that someone from the industry is questioned regarding his gender, but he remains unaffected.
"For anybody who steps into the world of showbiz, there are always questions about sexual preference, family background, 'yung upbringing. Lahat pakikialaman. And you can’t say one thing to put a period to it, kasi kahit anong sabihin mo, mayroon at mayroon pa rin silang sasabihin," said Jed.
Jed said he learned to just "go with the flow and let everybody talk, let everybody speak their mind" during his last ten years in the business.
"Hindi ko na kokontrahin, kung anong gusto ninyong sabihin, kung anong gusto ninyong isipin, bahala na kayo. As long as I’m doing my job well, as long as I’m making people enjoy through my voice and performances, that’s what matters," said the singer.
He's also very secretive when it comes to his personal life, specifically when it comes to the matters of the heart. He said that's the way he want it, to "separate my life from work."
But Jed hinted that he had a romantic relationship but managed to keep it away from the prying eyes of the public.
When asked what qualities he is looking for in a woman, the singer said she should understand the nature of job he's in.
"Hindi madali kasi 'yung sa schedule namin, hindi fixed. So, someone who understands my job, somebody who can make me laugh and somebody who can take care of me," said Jed.
Right now Jed is more focus with his career though.
The 33-year-old Ilonggo is set to celebrate his decade long career with an anniversary concert scheduled on November 15 at the PICC Plenary Hall.
Jed said it wasn't always a bed of roses for him. There were highs and lows in the past 10 years in industry.
"Ang dami ring humindi sa akin, hindi tumanggap sa akin sa circle nila. On the other hand, what makes it perfect is learning from those things that I’ve experienced in the past," Jed said.
"Looking back, it’s close to perfect. I was lucky enough to be surrounded by a handful of people who believe so much in me na kahit sinasabi ko na I will give up, andiyan sila to push me. They were my strength behind my temporary weakness," he ended. (Sunnex)
