DIVA diva diva diva Regine
DIVA is Regine's latest Musical teleserye. A first in the Philippines. When I saw her interview, she reminded me of Bakekang especially with her nose and protruding front teeth. The only difference is Diva's extreme level of ugliness - warts galore and her bronze skin (there's nothing wrong with black the humongous warts worsened everything).
Since Diva is a musical, I'm expecting a similar format to GLEE. I can only speculate that this is similar to the Korean comedy film of an obese singer with a beautiful voice but had to settle as a ghost singer, simply because her weight issue does not make her marketable in the music industry. It's possible that Regine/Diva has a superb voice with an extremely ugly face and will have to settle with plastic surgery to become the mainstream DIVA that everyone likes. It's possible that the good looking Regine/Diva is just a mere dream sequence.
Is Regine's new album based on DIVA? A double cd - covers & original songs which would explain the need for the DIVA songwriting contest. I can only speculate. Given that Jaya is in the cast, I'm 100% sure it'll be fun...
