‘Popstar Princess’ Sarah Geronimo started her career at the age of 14 after winning the television singing contest ‘Star for a Night’. From then on, endorsements, concerts, movies and many other projects, flowed over her entire career in the showbiz industry. Until now, she’s still at the peak of her stardom.
But during her concert tour in Las Vegas, Nevada, Sarah was unable to hold her emotions and she eventually broke down.
The 29-year-old singer-actress confessed about the pressure of fame. With her emotions in the video captured by a fan, netizens could tell that her burden was not a light one.
“It hit me ‘yung mga napapanood ko sa videos ni MJ (Michael Jackson), ‘yung sigawan at palakpakan ng mga tao, ‘yung minsan may naluluha pa, ‘yung gusto ka mahawakan lang, grabe po. I realized na hindi po pala ako handa doon,” Sarah said.
[I saw videos of MJ (Michael Jackson) and it hit me, the screams and applause of the people, while some even shed tears just to touch you. I realized that I wasn’t prepared for it.]
Sarah revealed that she wanted to share her talent but she wasn’t prepared for the things she asked for; especially the pressure to always do good, and be perfect.
She realized that despite the fame, she still feels empty inside. She also shared how she tried to look for fulfilment.
She continued by saying, “But then may nagsabi sa akin na ‘Sarah, huwag ka nang maghanap dahil ‘yan ang binigay na talento ng Diyos sa ‘yo [But then, someone told me, ‘Sarah, don’t try to search for it because that’s the talent God gave you] , so use it as a platform to honor His name and to glorify His name and to become an inspiration for other people,’” she said.
