Actress-host Anne Curtis
MANILA - A visibly emotional Anne Curtis responded to her critics during her second concert at the Araneta Coliseum held Friday, with a solo number that best "represents" what she wanted to say.
"I think the reason why I want to sing this is because I love the lyrics. It best represents kung anong gusto kong sabihin sa mga tao na may nasasabi," she said during her concert titled, "The Forbidden Concert: AnneKapal."
The Kapamilya star barely got the rest of her opening spiel out as tears started to well up, to which the crowd reacted with cheers and applause in an effort to encourage the actress.
"Pero more than anything, I want to thank everyone na nandito tonight. Because you know, I had my ups and downs, I had my lessons learned but you guys stick with me though thick and thin. So maraming salamat sa inyo. Thanks guys for keeping the faith," she added.
Curtis then went on to sing the hit "Titanium," popularized by French DJ David Guetta and singer Sia, which starts with the lyrics: "You shout it out, but I can't hear a word you say. I'm criticized but all your bullets ricocchet."
Controversies she survived
Curtis has been involved in a number of controversies this past year.
The Kapamilya actress was reported to have slapped actor John Lloyd at an upscale bar in November of 2013 and became the butt of jokes when she was stung by a box jellyfish during a taping for the hit fantasy series, "Dyesebel."
"For all of you idiots making fish jokes, the box jellyfish is one of the deadliest animals on earth... Judgmental asses," Erwan Heussaff, the boyfriend of Curtis, said in a tweet.
Two days ago, it was also reported by a blogsite that she had broken up with Heussaff. It prompted Curtis to deny that she had a rich suitor.
"There's no one. Sabi niya, 'I don't have the time. I haven't met anybody and there's really nobody," said talk show host Kris Aquino, when she shared a text message of Curtis responding to the rumour.
