Alex Gonzaga is one of those celebrities who reaches out to fans just by several clicks regularly.
Next month marks her anniversary as YouTube vlogger. She currently has 1.12 million subscribers and her 39 videos have garnered more than 60 million views so far.
Through her YouTube channel, she is able to share makeup tutorials, skin care tips, and bag raids. She also shows some milestone in her life, as well as her escapades with friends and family.
She loves her online persona.
“I’m happy kasi finally I get to be myself and no one will judge,” she told Bulletin Entertainment.
As for the hateful comments she gets, the Kapamilya artist just re-reads those until she gets “immune.”
“As in I always read them na sunod-sunod lang until mawala na lang, until maging words na lang sila,” she said.
So those have no effect at all now?
“’Pag may mga bagong comments lang. May naiimbento kasi sila na parang mga bagong sasabihin na mahu-hurt ka pero na re-realize ko kasi if you believe ’yung sinabi nila kahit just one percent nu’n ’yun ’yung magiging affected ka eh,” she answered.
Alex pointed out that knowing who you are serves as your greatest shield from bashers.
She said that feedback from people she loves, particularly her parents and her sister singer-actress Toni Gonzaga, are those that matter to her.
“Na ’pag sinabi talaga ng daddy ko na ‘Mali,’ ate ko (sinabi na) ‘Mali talaga ’yung ginawa mo,’ du’n ako mas affected.”
Alex also enjoys watching movies. Her fave genre? Romantic-comedy.
Actually, Bulletin Entertainment got to talk to Alex after she participated in FOX+’s competitive event wherein she was pitted against fellow celebrities like Luis Manzano, Alodia Gosiengfiao, and Wil Dasovich to be the last one streaming.
At the end of the four-hour event, she and Alodia battled it out the model-cosplayer won.
