Here’s the story
I was seated 2 rows away from Julie.
Nagulat ako when Elmo went to the judges table after his performance. Ayun pala may spiel. At first it was only Jasmine, Tim, JayR and Elmo. After ilang mins, Julie went to their side. OMG kasali pala sya sa spiel. Dito na nawala lahat ng…
Faneys be like: Sorry hanggang World wide trend lang kaya namin para sa simpleng prod.
It’s been six years since their tandem was born. It was an experiment that brought them together on stage of a Sunday variety show and immediately showed an unexpected chemistry. Their first duet, Pyramid, gave way to several prods every Sunday in Party Pilipinas and eventually became…
Q:Hi! silent fan here. Haha. I just want to say that i'm glad that you are not one of those people who always put the blame on Elmo. i believe that he doesn't deserved all of that. I don't even want to say this but whenever there is a problem, people always say that its because of Elmo. Why not for once its because of Julie?. Bibihira nalang sila makita together or what pero they always say na dinadown nya c Julie? I love Julie sooooo much. But i think its so unfair for Elmo to get all the blame.
It seems far-fetched for me, but thank you for being a ‘fan’. :)
So, here’s my stand:
I love Julie and I love Elmo just as much. But you know what, I think we have this tendency to easily find faults in Elmo because he is the guy. I hope this made sense. But yeah, I think this is unfair in some way. But that’s just the way it is, right?
When something seems wrong, Elmo would then be criticized and worse, dispraised because we automatically think that he should be the one to blame because Julie is ‘the girl’ and we tend to believe that she can never hold any responsibility for anything bad.
I’m not saying that ‘for once, we should put the blame on Julie’ since we all know how good her heart is. But that doesn’t mean that because I can’t find fault in her, I would hunt all those faults in Elmo which is apparently what everybody’s doing right now. And it makes me sad, in all honesty. :(
But yeah, I have heard Elmo doing stuff that a devoted fan girl, like me (and probably like you) would not want to know. But he is his own person and he is free to do what he wants even if that doesn’t include Julie and vice versa. That is the reality we have to be in contact with.
Elmo has flaws. He’s not perfect. Sometimes, I could even be angered because, OA as it sounds, some circumstances hurt me. Things I’d rather not tell. But there’s no way I could stay like that for long. Because I can’t resist Elmo and his charm. :)
But you know what makes me love Elmo more? He has been on the receiving end of any hurtful statements you could ever imagine, he’s been named names, he’s been thrown rocks but you never heard him ever complain. I admire him for being the man that he is, though sometimes, I want him to speak for himself but then again, he is intelligent enough to know when to speak up and when to shut up.
I guess that’s what makes the others think that he is faulty, too. Because of his silence, everyone else believes that he really is guilty which is a sign of being hypercritical and faultfinding. Sad!
But everyone has his own thinking and we can never change how they view things. It is a matter of perception. I feel sorry for those blind ones who can’t see how great of a man Elmo is. But I respect them nonetheless.
Well, I am grateful for those people who love the tandem equally like I do and those who never take sides. :) I wish everyone would stop wallowing themselves in BVs and just support the two. Because as long as we are intact, the boat is still on sail for JuliElmo. ♥
But here’s the thing:
At the end of the day, it will all boil down to this: WE ARE ALL JUST FANS.
