“Sino bang nanggaya, sino bang ginaya? Paulit-ulit na lang ’yan. Sino bang original sa mundo?” This is Vice Ganda’s respond to Joey de Leon’s accusations that “It’s Showtime” copied the reality romance format of Eat Bulaga’s “AlDub” phenomenon by introducing the segment “Nasaan Ka Mr. Pastillas?” last week.
In an interview by Pang-masa, the comedian emphasized the importance of staying relevant to what the televiewers want to see.
“At basta, kahit ano’ng sabihin sa ’yo, for as long as everybody’s talking about you, you remain to be relevant. And in showbusiness, it’s all about being relevant,” he said.
Despite the criticisms they’ve been receiving from netizens, Vice Ganda keeps everything on a positive note.
“Nagpapasalamat pa rin ako sa mga tao because they keep on talking about Pastillas. Anuman ang sabihin nila, whether good or bad, for as long as everyone is talking about it, it makes it relevant,” he added.
