where the Pinay speaks on womanhood


Jessy Mendiola

celebrate: Lea Salonga!

One of the few celebrities who continues to keep her voice — and her balls — no matter the trappings of Pinoy mainstream showbusiness. Always refreshing, always always a welcome display of pop feminism.

celebrate! Jessy Mendiola pushes for strength and happiness over perfection

All the hate directed at the sexiest woman according to a poll by men’s magazine FHM is just horrible. She’s being called arrogant, and full of herself, even as her honesty and sense of self is what we should hope for in all of our female (and male) celebrities. And she’s not afraid of saying she’s imperfect, too, and here, she goes beyond vital statistics and instead talks about strength and happiness. Such a rarity, this Jessy Mendiola. Such a relief that she exists at all in superficial, pa-cute, pa-tweetums show business.
