Janella Salvador breaks silence on her latest issue

JANELLA SALVADOR – The actress-singer has spoken up regarding the issue of allegedly ’embarrassing’ Kim Chiu when she was teased to sing on ‘It’s Showtime.’

After promoting her movie and single, It’s Showtime co-host Kim Chiu requested Janella for a “sampol” However, Janella declined Kim’s request, citing her hoarse voice for the day. “Sample naman Janella sa bago mong…” Kim joked, but Janella promptly responded before Kim could finish her sentence, stating, “Medyo paos ako today, kayo na lang. Next time, promise.”

Vice Ganda, the TV host-comedian, playfully referenced Janella’s response during the show’s segment “EXpecially For You,” typically used when guests decline to provide a sample. Vice jokingly remarked, “Medyo paos siya ngayon, kayo na lang.” This incident quickly gained traction online, with numerous netizens expressing criticism towards Janella.
