First of all, two things: Happy Valentines Day to one and all and Happy Lent to all the Catholics and other practicing Christians out there.
Starting two days ago, we finally have our first taste of our Hime-sama’s upcoming album, starting with the classic adorable OPM track Mr. Kupido. While we still get to see her in Toda Max and the MyrPaul1 tandem is still alive and kicking, we now have another pairing that every Myrtle fan here and there have been jumping in to the bandwagon: QuenTle.2
There’s nothing wrong with jumping the bandwagon, after all, you really can’t deny QuenTle’s unexpectedly sweet chemistry in the Mr. Kupido music video. The difference between this video and Myrtle’s past music video Your Name with Young JV was that in the Your Name video, Young JV and Myrtle are mainly singing (and rapping) with everyone else are “making love in the club.” Mr. Kupido, on the other hand, actually has a story. The MyrYoung pairing was simply a one-hit wonder once the year 2012 ended.
What of Kittle and Myrves?
From the grapevine, Kit Thompson is involved with his own solo projects with other pairings (namely Jame Oineza and from here and there, Hope Soberano). Kittle fans don’t seem to be bothered with the “separation” between Myrtle and Kit, which only tells us one thing: these fans support both individuals with their projects no matter who they’re being paired up with. Kittle is on hiatus at the moment, maybe?
That other pairing, known as Myrves.3 How do I put this in a much friendlier way? Just like in the past, sorry to say, the fans of this pairing are the only ones who complain and complain and complain whenever ABS-CBN/Star Magic pairs Myrtle up with other dudes aside from
lin— Yves Flores. It didn’t matter to them whether if was a small-town idol or a big-named idol such as Paul Salas and Enrique Gil, if it’s not Yves, it’s nothing for them. And you wonder why these people call themselves fans and “supporters” of Myrtle and her individual projects. I did notice a pattern though: they will support any of Myrtle’s individual projects but they still pine to have Yves somewhere included/guest in those individual projects.4 Sure, many of them support her upcoming debut single Mr. Kupido, but when it came to the music video?
Sorry, Myrves fan(tard)s. This is 2013. This year is the year of Myrtle Gail Sarrosa alone.
And in the end…?
For sure Star Magic will be trying out plenty of possible pairings for Myrtle in upcoming future projects, but today, it seems a whole massive
bandwagon fans have been looking forward to seeing the continuation of the QuenTle pairing in upcoming projects. Princess and I had just ended and Enrique/Quen as of now seems to be free. For sure there’s going to be plenty of surprises in store for our hime-sama and for all her dedicated fans.
Guess what! I’ve gotten a few of my non-Pinoy fanfic-writing otaku friends falling in love with Mr. Kupido!
Now that we all have seen the video, now as fans we need to do what must be done:
