Wannabe rock star wants Star Records deal
MANILA, Philippines -- In a letter addressed to actress-host Kris Aquino, her self-proclaimed "husband" Daniel Magtira responded to the presidential sister's branding of his claim as "crazy" with assurance of his unfailing love -- and a request to help him score a deal with a recording company.

Dated October 5, 2012, Magtira's letter to Aquino addressed the actress-host's televised reaction to his claim that he and the "Queen of All Media" are in fact married.
In an episode of her morning talk show "Kris TV," Aquino referred to Magtira as "baliw" (crazy) for having written her name as his wife in his certificate of candidacy. The Tondo resident was hoping to run as senator in the upcoming 2013 elections.
Referring to Aquino's apparent disgust at his claim, Magtira, in his letter to the Kapamilya star, informed her of his "love" and his resolve to stand by this despite criticisms.
"Kahit sabihan ako ng BALIW ay tatanggapin ko, DAHIL MAKAL KITA," Magtira said in his letter, closed with "Nagmamahal" and his signature.

Magtira also told Aquino that his aspirations of becoming a "rock star" are motivated by her, as she is his "inspiration."
"[Kahit] out of place ako sa iyo, hindi ako [mag-iiba sa kagustuhan kong] maging senador. Ambisyon ko rin maging recording rock star Pinoy. Ang lahat ng ito, ikaw ang inspirasyon ko," he said.
"Sana matulungan mo ako sa pag-pirma sa STAR RECORD ABS-CBN," he added.
Addressing Aquino's earlier statement that she cannot re-marry yet, Magtira assured the actress-host of his intentions to be bound to her in love.
Early this month, Aquino said she is not yet free to re-marry, even as her marriage with basketball player James Yap had already been annulled. According to the actress-host, she has yet to obtain the document from the National Statistics Office (NSO) which certifies her civil status as being single.
"Tungkol sa iyong NSO," Magtira said, "pakakasalan kita. Kahit itanong mo kay DOCTOR LOVE MAGTIRA. They call me DOCTOR LOVE."
