BASTOS DAW is my favorite song of ANDREW E. He’s a rap icon and he’s one of my idols in the music industry. I really like his open-minded and hilarious style of rapping. His critics accuse him of being “bastos” or indecent because of his songs/lyrics. But Andrew E. was right by saying, “my songs are dirty if you have a dirty mind”. In my own translation- walang bastos sa bukas na kaisipan. In our present Entertainment Industry, I am considered as the most “BASTOS” performer. The Mocha Girls and I have been banned in several occasions. We were scheduled to perform in an alumni homecoming for an all-boys school. The priests reprimanded the alumni batch organizers for getting us because they said we were insinuating sex. And so they canceled the Mocha Girls. Instead, they invited “sexy stars” in their skimpy outfits to perform mediocre dance numbers. Hypocrisy don’t you think? In another instance, one entertainment venue in Ortigas, with the same concept of Metrowalk and Bluewave banned us after performing for a radio tour/show. The owners said we were “TOO BASTOS”. They claimed to be “Born Again” christians and said they can’t tolerate such “worldly” performance. It’s a nightlife & entertainment place for crying out loud! It’s not a church! You’re selling booze! People drink and get drunk! Don’t you think that’s “worldly”? Now that’s ultimate hypocrisy!
I maybe the “horniest performer” out there but I am WHOLESOME. What is “wholesome” anyway? According to Merriam-Webster dictionary:
1. : promoting health or well-being of mind or spirit
2 promoting health of body
3 : sound in body, mind, or morals
I am promoting health and well-being. I have morals! I maybe horny but I have rules and principles. I am Pro-RH (Responsible Horniness):
1. Never mess with guys/girls who are not single (unless their partners are willing to share)
2. Always use protection. Great safe sex is the best!
3. For my young followers, stay virgin as long as you can. Nothing wrong with being a “solo” artist. Practice makes perfect.
Sad to say, we live in a world full of hypocrites. There are celebrities out there who present themselves as “wholesome” but in reality are professional prostitutes. Give them 150k pesos and they’re yours for a night. I may not present myself as “wholesome” but I don’t fuck for money. There are also some directors of TV shows/networks who take advantage of artists. You can be a regular part of that show only if you have sex with the director. Showbiz is a dirty world. Because of the stigma attached to being an entertainer, my management and I are very strict with the Mocha Girls. We don’t entertain “sponsors”, dirty old men, politicians, etc. We don’t tolerate prostitution in our group. This is the reason why former members were axed from the group.
People can say anything they want about me. They can accuse me of being “bastos” – because I promote safe sex, I encourage the youth to use protection (condom), I encourage couples to enjoy sex, I’m fearless, I say what’s on my mind, I’m open-minded, I don’t give a fuck about what people say, etc. Call me “BASTOS” all you want but I AM NOT A WHORE.
In line with the so-called “Holy Week”, which I don’t think is “holy” anymore (party-time-get-drunk-in-Boracay), I am not going to post nude or sexy images here. Instead, I would like to share with you Mocha Girls new music video of our song “IPADARAMA”. A song which reminds us to appreciate our loved ones while they’re still here. Something to reflect on this season of Lent. Click to watch the video:
