MANILA -- Alex Gonzaga on Monday opened up on "Magandang Buhay" about her newest hit "Tipints," admitting that real experiences influenced the lyrics.
 
"Sa YouTube kasi, laging nakikita ko, 'Ah si Mommy Pinty parang mommy ko.' Natutuwa sila [her fans] kasi nakaka-relate sila," she shared on an episode of the morning talk show aired this Monday.

"So sabi ko, 'Gawan ko kaya ng kanta ang mom ko pero sa tingnin ko makaka-relate din iyong mga typical Filipino, lalo na iyong mga ka-edad ko kasi ganoon din ang nanay nila."

Gonzaga also explained why she delayed its supposed Mother's Day release and that her mother initially thought she was cursing at her and was hesitant about the song.
