HOW A 'SALUBONG' PAINTING BECAME CONTROVERSIAL AND VIRAL


Dante Hipolito celebrating Christmas with 'Salubong' In an ambiance of rural peace and prosperity, visual artist Dante Hipolito, tagged as the “Smile Painter,” depicts Gov. Vilma Santos in the 29” x 24” oil on canvas titled Salubong (2015) as a farmer leading Gary Valenciano, Sen. Grace Poe, Marian Rivera, Dingdong Dantes, Coco Martin and Kris Aquino who are also costumed as country people in the festive welcome. Dante, who is observing his 25th year of celebrating Filipino heritage this year, set work on the painting two months before Pope Francis was to arrive for his first Pontifical visit of the country. Wife Carmen who is an avid follower of local entertainers suggested to make film and television actors dressed as farm workers welcome him. As her request followed self-created Composite Realism style, the idea appealed to him. Marian posted the painting in her Facebook account that accumulated 149,000 likes from the article titled Vilma leads Papal welcome by this writer as published in this section on Jan. 8, 2015. Then television, large-format dailies and online portals gave it primary exposure. It was inevitable to go viral... and controversial despite its pacific message. Turning out as his most celebrated painting, this gave Dante major media exposure. ABS-CBN’s Umagang Kay Ganda broke out the news. Television crew sought him for interviews in his Cavite residence and invited for live appearances such as GMA 7’s Unang Hirit and during TV5’s live coverage of the Papal visit as a resource person. What is basically a depiction of farmers welcoming Pope Francis on his Papal visit turned a convoluted issue. Clearly, many commenters missed the spiritual dimension of Salubong, a non-sectarian approach to spirituality, turning it into a free-for-all bashing from the banal to the weighty only possible in social media. Selected quotes are: Carlos Celdran is logical: “The vanity of this painting is exactly what Pontifex is against. And Gary Valenciano is a born again Christian. WTH?” READ MORE...

The picture on this page was taken some six years ago when Natalie Cole came to perform at the Araneta Coliseum. After the concert, producer Glenn Llamas of Wilbros Production invited Jojo Gabinete and me to meet and greet Natalie back stage. Natalie was very charming, very accommodating, even agreeing to have a picture with us. In contrast, during the show, she was obviously not in a good mood although she performed as well as expected. Sometimes, she would stop in the middle of a song and order those in the audience taking video shots to stop it already. “That guy over there,” Natalie would point to the Upper Box section and, at other times, to the Patron section, “I told you to stop doing it!” She sounded very irritated, distracted from her singing. So when Glenn asked us if we wanted to see Natalie, Jojo and I were at first hesitant. We shouldn’t have been. Natalie was cool, smiling widely, and stayed between Jojo and me for the photo op. When the photo was developed, we noticed a plaster on the right side of Natalie’s chest, so white thus it stood out against her dark skin. That’s when we learned why Natalie was somewhat grumpy during the show. We were told that earlier that afternoon, she had undergone dialysis. She was suffering from a kidney ailment. When Jojo and I heard the news that Natalie died Thursday, Dec. 31, at the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles at age 65, we felt sad, maybe because we somehow felt “connected” to Natalie because of that brief but, to quote the title of her hit duet (through “technological wizardry”) with her late dad Nat “King” Cole, “unforgettable” encounter where she touched us in a magical way that her songs never fail to do, among them Miss You Like Crazy, Someone That I Used To Love, I Live For Your Love, When I Fall In Love and many more. She also recorded a follow-up to Unforgettable, titled Still Unforgettable. According to the statement by her son Robert Yancy and sisters Timolin and Casey Cole, “Natalie fought a fierce, courageous battle, dying how she lived…with dignity, strength and honor. Our mother and sister will be greatly missed and remain UNFORGETTABLE in our hearts forever.”  READ MORE...

How Salubong painting became controversial and viral


Dante Hipolito celebrating Christmas with 'Salubong'

MANILA, JANUARY 11, 2016 (PHILSTAR) By Edgar O. Cruz - January 6, 2016 - In an ambiance of rural peace and prosperity, visual artist Dante Hipolito, tagged as the “Smile Painter,” depicts Gov. Vilma Santos in the 29” x 24” oil on canvas titled Salubong (2015) as a farmer leading Gary Valenciano, Sen. Grace Poe, Marian Rivera, Dingdong Dantes, Coco Martin and Kris Aquino who are also costumed as country people in the festive welcome.

Dante, who is observing his 25th year of celebrating Filipino heritage this year, set work on the painting two months before Pope Francis was to arrive for his first Pontifical visit of the country. Wife Carmen who is an avid follower of local entertainers suggested to make film and television actors dressed as farm workers welcome him. As her request followed self-created Composite Realism style, the idea appealed to him.

Marian posted the painting in her Facebook account that accumulated 149,000 likes from the article titled Vilma leads Papal welcome by this writer as published in this section on Jan. 8, 2015. Then television, large-format dailies and online portals gave it primary exposure. It was inevitable to go viral... and controversial despite its pacific message.

Turning out as his most celebrated painting, this gave Dante major media exposure. ABS-CBN’s Umagang Kay Ganda broke out the news. Television crew sought him for interviews in his Cavite residence and invited for live appearances such as GMA 7’s Unang Hirit and during TV5’s live coverage of the Papal visit as a resource person.

What is basically a depiction of farmers welcoming Pope Francis on his Papal visit turned a convoluted issue. Clearly, many commenters missed the spiritual dimension of Salubong, a non-sectarian approach to spirituality, turning it into a free-for-all bashing from the banal to the weighty only possible in social media. Selected quotes are:

Carlos Celdran is logical: “The vanity of this painting is exactly what Pontifex is against. And Gary Valenciano is a born again Christian. WTH?”

Ma. Isabel Ongpin articulated in her Manila Times column that the painting had the power to “move the obscenely rich, the comfortable rich and the middle class in this country to share more with their poorer countrymen without whose help they would not be where they are... Otherwise, the visit will just be a celebrity bash, a Pope Francis and me story for the usual suspects and the favored few, albeit using a cast of thousands, with no good and transformative effect.”

Netizen Nathan Briones (via the Rappler website) thinks the artist intended the painting to be a satirical artwork. “You decide. ‘Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven.’ Blessed are the rich and famous, for theirs is an oil painting with Pope Francis,” he commented.

It was unavoidable that Salubong would be compared to Mideo Cruz’s Poleteismo instillation at the Cultural Center of the Philippines which turned controversial and eventually banned. This was an unfair comparison as Dante’s painting did not have anti-religion content. But Mideo’s statement about the issue opens the mind: “’Yung sinasabi ko lagi na walang limitasyon ang imahinasyon ng isang artista, bakit hindi ang tumitingin?”

After all the exercise in the freedom of expression, the discussion about Salubong turned highfalutin, a dire effort to intellectualize a simple issue. Dante stated it best by bringing it back to Earth level: “Isa lang po ang naging mensahe ko sa painting na yon... ang pagmamahal ko sa aking kabiyak ng puso.”

Salubong, no doubt, spawned in the process partial truths, confused interpretations and plain lies. And doing so resulted to bending information and purposely misinterpreting them. For sure, they were done in the logic or illogic of freedom of expression most of the time without obligation or remorse.

The Information Age necessarily has been twisted and mangled, resulting to the Age of Misinformation.

Unforgettable

That’s what you are

Tho’ near or far

Like a song of love that clings to me

How the thought of you does things to me

Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way

And forever more, that’s how you’ll stay

That’s why darling it’s incredible

That someone so unforgettable

Thinks that I am so unforgettable too

The picture on this page was taken some six years ago when Natalie Cole came to perform at the Araneta Coliseum. After the concert, producer Glenn Llamas of Wilbros Production invited Jojo Gabinete and me to meet and greet Natalie back stage.

One news report noted that Natalie had battled drug problems and hepatitis that forced her to undergo a kidney transplant in May 2009 (several weeks before she came for that Big Dome concert), adding that Natalie was inspired by her dad at an early age, sang with him when she was 11 and lost her dad to lung cancer in 1965 when she was 15.

After that Big Dome concert, Natalie performed in the same venue twice in barely two years as part of the David Foster & Friends Tour, the second having been in August last year, together with Charice, Ruben Studdard and Mark Mabasa.

Charice: “Breaks my heart, Natalie. I will always remember you. I’m glad to have known you. Thank you for your words. Thank you for everything. Thank you for your songs. Unforgettable, that’s what you are... I love you, Natalie.”


Natalie with Dr. Vicki Belo

Vicki Belo: “I met Natalie years back through my friend David Foster. I found Natalie to be very elegant, classy and down-to-earth, unlike some Hollywood superstars. She told me that she had a difficult life, but she was wonderful and warm. She is truly unforgettable and I’m sure she’ll continue to make beautiful music in heaven.”

The STAR did an exclusive interview with Natalie in 2009, a few weeks before she came for that first concert.

Here are excerpts:

What were you thinking when you were recording Unforgettable with your father?

“That was 18 years ago…a long time ago. Oh yeah, it was a great moment, it was a very wonderful thing to do, and we were happy that we had found the song that was right for the record. It was a great moment, yeah!”

Of all your dad’s songs, why Unforgettable?

“Why Unforgettable? It’s the best among his songs. His other songs are just as memorable but they don’t have the emotion that Unforgettable has.”

What’s your favorite line from that song?

“Hmmm…Probably this line: It’s incredible that you think I’m unforgettable, too…” (Aside from Unforgettable, Natalie also did her own versions of her father’s well-loved songs such as That Sunday That Summer, Mona Lisa and Too Young.)

What are your fond memories about your father?

“Ahhhh…It was good when he was home for Christmas. He liked to drive fast cars and he was a big sports fan. He loved baseball, all kinds of sport.”

Did he sing you to sleep?

“No, he did not.”

Oh, he did not. Do you remember sitting on his lap with your father humming or singing a song?

“Yeah, we did things like that.”

How much of you is like your father?

“Oh, quite a few things…probably my temperament and my generosity; the way I like people. Like my father, I don’t want to see anyone mistreated, anything like that. I’m very racial-conscious because my father had a lot of, you know, challenges in the area of race. I’m very sensitive to that kind of issue.”

I’m sure you are aware that you are carrying your father’s legacy. Is it such a big responsibility?

“I don’t think anyone can measure up to what my father had achieved. I’m just happy to at least play some of his music but he is really the one who was the pioneer, the one who started all this. He was really The King.”

If your father were in front of you now, what would you tell him? I’m sure he is very proud of you.

“I would just want to tell him how much I love him. I wish we had the time to do more things together. I would just love to drive him around in a sports car.”

What pieces of advice did he give you?

“He didn’t. He was the type who would teach by example and not so much with words. When I was little, I would watch him go to work. He treated people very well. And that’s what I learned from my father — how to treat people very well. I think he showed me how to love your family, your children, even if he wasn’t home very much. He loved us very much. Watching him was my greatest lesson.”

If you were to sing a song to your father, what would it be?

“Hmmmmm…let’s see. A song by another singer…You Are So Beautiful To Me.”

Together at last Up There, Natalie and The King must be happily singing…what else?...Unforgettable!!!

MANILA, Philippines – Pia Wurtzbach has begun her first official day as the 64th Miss Universe.

To begin her reign, Pia made media rounds and appeared in US morning shows such as “Good Morning America” and “Live! With Michael and Kelly” on Monday.

“It was very exciting. Of course, I wanted to win. I joined Miss Philippines three times just to earn the sash that says Philippines. And of course, I want to win Miss Universe,” she told “Good Morning America” host Lara Spencer when asked about her Miss Universe experience.

Pia added, “In the Philippines, it's a big deal. It's been 42 years since we last won, so everybody's been anticipating to finally get the crown. And we finally did it.”

The 26-year-old beauty queen made international headlines for her win in the Miss Universe pageant last year after show host Steve Harvey mistakenly announced Miss Colombia Ariadna Gutierrez as the winner.

When asked about this, Pia said, “I think it would be a little bit difficult for two girls to share the crown.”

“But I have high hopes that this would give great opportunities for me and Miss Colombia and the rest of the contestants,” she said.

Pia also recalled her experience during the Miss Universe pageant in her interview with Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan of the US morning show “Live! With Michael and Kelly!”

“When I was announced as the first runner-up initially, I was just thinking to myself, 'Okay, I made it this far, I'm pretty sure I made the country proud and that's good enough for me',” she shared. “But when he announced that I was in fact the winner, of course I was even more excited.”

She added, “I mean, I joined Miss Universe because I wanted to win. And I finally got it. I took me a long time to get here.”

Revealing that she spent the holidays in New York City for the first time, Kelly and Michael asked Pia what she did on New Year’s Eve.

“I did something touristy, as they say. I watched the ball drop,” she said.

The ball drop is the Times Square Ball, a popular holiday event located in New York City's Time Square. Here, the ball descends down a special flagpole at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, resting at midnight to signal the start of the New Year.

“I was very close to it. I could see it. And I was watching. And I was thinking, 'At which part does it actually drop?' I was waiting for it. And while we were doing the countdown, because I was looking at the clock instead, I didn't realize where the ball went 'till afterwards. I had review my video to find out what happened to the ball,” Pia quipped.

Pauleen Luna Got Pia Wurtzbach As Her Bridesmaid For Her Wedding BY JACQUELINE ARIAS JANUARY 08, 2016


Vic Sotto, Pauleen Luna

It’s too early to say whether the wedding of Pauleen Luna and Vic Sotto will be “the biggest wedding of 2016″ but we’re betting that it’s going to be televised and the ratings will cast it as a small screen hit.

The fact that they’re having the most beautiful woman in the universe, Pia Wurtzbach, as part of their entourage is enough to keep you glued to your screen, for sure.

The couple recently revealed who will be part of of their wedding entourage where they confirmed that Pia is set to be one of Pauleen’s bridesmaids. No word yet if this’ll happen during the beauty queen’s hectic grand homecoming schedule starting Jan. 23.

Joining Pia are Pauleen’s sister Anne Margaret Luna, Vic’s niece Mara Isabel Sotto, and digital artist Leah Camille Agcaoili.

Meanwhile, Vic booked Eat Bulaga! co-stars Wally Bayola, Jose Manalo, and Paolo Ballesteros (a.k.a the three lolas in AlDub) to be his groomsmen. Let’s hope they don’t outshine the women by showing up in their senyora garb and ridiculously thick makeup.
