Asia’s songbird Regine Velasquez was once called ugly by bullies
She shared the information during an interview with Bianca Gonzalez on YouTube.
The 51-year-old experienced this when she was still starting out.
“People know that I can sing. But they didn’t really think that I’d make because I’m not beautiful,” she said.
The negative remarks never affected her nor did they make her feel insecure, she said.
“It was okay if they thought I’m ugly. But wait ‘til they hear me sing,” Velasquez stated.
Velasquez is now a multi-awarded singer, far from the woman they used to bully.
She is celebrating her 35th anniversary in the industry.
