Disgraced REGINE Fans @ the LOW KEY Mall Tour in the New Eastwood Mall



How far will you go for your Idol? I have been thinking lately, especially when I've stumbled upon these videos of disgraced/disgraceful Regine fans. At first, I just find the videos funny but looking back, the incident presented a serious social concern. Regine is a diva with iconic and legendary status. However, being in a third world nation, we just cannot avoid freeloaders. Some Regine fans have developed this weird obsession of collecting her signatures and most importantly, pictures with her to be used in various social bookmarking sites.

I guess first or third world nations will always have freeloaders. There will be fans who will develop a stalker syndrome. There will be fans who will collect their idol's videos, mp3s, etc and sell them- impervious of the repercussions of the ANTI PIRACY law of their country. There will be fans who will find happiness with their collections and would claim that they have the BEST collections - not even pausing for a moment of reflection that they got their collections from other serious collectors.

Regine brings out the best and the worst in her fans. Just like in these videos, the fans did not consider the fact that other people spent their money just to get VIP seats. They were soo consumed seeing their idol that they were insensitive and lacked good moral judgment.They thought they can always get away with their usual third world glib tongues and cheerful dispositions. In life, Rules are necessary to promote order and a balanced sense of fairness. There are just no shortcuts. You have to sweat it out. Regine relied on her talent and hardwork. She did not become famous overnight!

Here are the links of the famous/infamous videos:

Nakahiya sila. Kami yung nasa may front nila. Napalingon tlaga ako sa kaguluhang naganap. Pinaalis talaga sila kasi daw VIP seats yun and sa likod daw dapat sila. Yung isnag baklang paypay nang paypay, nagsu-sweet talk pa dun sa security personnel pero di rin umeffect. Nakita pa ako sa video. Hahahah!!!

eh ano pa nga ba masasabi natin kundi sadyang may mga taong makakapal ang mukha. sanay na sila sa ganyang gawain kaya di na tinatablan ng hiya.

Hay naku!! Buti nalang may nag-post nito. Umagang-umaga, naiimbyerna ako ha!! Ako, 2 CDs pa ang binili ko tapos di napirmahan dahil nauna pang pumila yung mga yan na di naman bumili on the spot. Mga pesteng freeloaders. Yang dalawang baklang yan sa video, nakita ko yan sila. Para silang galing sa kweba na ngayon lang nakakita ng Songbird. Kung makasingit sa linya, parang mamatay pag di nakapagpapirma. Ang iingay pa nila. Hay naku. Pag nakita ko ulit yan sa mga Songbird events, babantayan ko talaga yang mga yan. Ivi-video ko din ang mga kakapalan nila. Tnx for sharing this video. It will serve as a warning to everyone na mag-ingat sa mga katulad nila.

nandun din po ako sa event.. galing ako ng school that night so late na akong nakadating (madami ng tao, and wala ng chance makapasok sa vip dahil puno na) mga 7pm... pero behave lang ako dun sa labas.. mejo malayo na so di ko na alam na may komosyon pala sa ibang lugar.. kahit naman nasa labas lang ako, nirerespeto ko naman yung mga nasa loob and hindi naman ako ganun kadesperado sa pirma ni ate reg.. hehe

and naku comment ko lang sa lugar.. yun nga parang disappointing yung pagkaorganize ng event.. mejo magulo.. malabo nga ung widescreen.. super blurred and then mahina pa ung audio. napansin ko pa nga si reg parang nahirapan ata siya sa audio nung first part, pinapalakasan niya pa ata diba.. anyways.. the one INSIDE eastwood mall last november was a better gig.. ayun lng.. late comment... hehehe
