“As long as you are confident about yourself and your sexuality, I think there is no need for you to be worried,” he said. “Ako naman, pinapabayaan ko na lang ang mga lumalabas. Siguro nage-enjoy sila sa ginagawa nila, so pabayaan na natin sila.”

The singer was also asked on his "short-lived" romance with kapuso sexy comedian turned host Rufa Mae Quinto.

According to Mark, he and Peachy (Ruffa Mae's nickname) first worked together in his concert and since then became good friends.

But the romance didn't blossom as the singer moved to ABS-CBN and Peachy dated Mark's friend Erik Santos.

“Mas friendship yung sa amin. Nagpapasalamat ako dahil sa guesting niya at nagkaroon kami ng matibay na pundasyon sa friendship namin,” he said.

Peachy, who was also there to talk about her "romance" with Mark, said she really got close with the singer and they share a very special bond.

Mark also dismissed all the intrigues with him moving back to GMA Network.

“Noong diniscuss nila sa akin, nag-agree na din ako. Nararamdam ko naman din na ikabubuti ito ng career ko and in-embrace ko na lang at ito na nga, nandito na ako. Winelcome naman ako ng GMA, so nagpapasalamat ako,” he said.

The singer was formally welcomed last Sunday during the launch of the newest concert show on Philippine TV, Party Pilipinas.

Mark will also be doing acting on the Kapuso Channel. (Glaiza Jarloc/Sunnex)
