Gwiyomi Fever in Manila!

What is Gwiyomi song?

The word “gwiyomi” simply means “cute”. The “gwiyomi song” is a cute Korean song about a girl asking his boyfriend to promise her not to look to other girls.
This is a K-pop single popularized by South Korean singer Hari and was released on February 18, 2013. It was inspired by a gesture from rapper South Korean Jung Ilhoon of boy group BtoB. The gesture is called 'Gwiyomi Player', which became an Internet in October 2012 followed by its first appearance on South Korean reality show by SBS MTV named MTV Diary. The gesture has also inspired many Asian netizens to upload their own versions onto the internet. On March 26, The Bangkok Post described the "Gwiyomi" song as the latest web-viral sensation that has unseated "Gangnam Style" to become the new K-pop craze.
Here are some videos of Filipina celebrities who joined the Gwiyomi craze:
And the winner is.....
Let’s all do the Gwiyomi craze! :D

Other Barretto Siblings take sides; Mom Inday calls Gretchen a liar!

Hmm this issue is getting hotter and juicier!

There's a raging war between Gretchen Barretto (with sister Marjorie) on one side and their mom Inday Barretto (and daughter Claudine) on the other side.

Like most celebrities, Gretchen loves to post on Instagram updates on what’s going on with her life, including photos of her branded personal items. Aside from commenting on Gretchen’s messages, an unidentified netizen put in an uncalled-for comment about Julia Barretto being “maarte.” Julia is the daughter of Marjorie and Dennis Padilla being built up by ABS-CBN as a possible heiress of Claudine’s “title” as a Kapamilya Teleserye Princess.

Gretchen must have suspected that the comment came from Claudine. What appeared next on Gretchen’s Instagram were questions about somebody (unnamed) being very violent, who had ruined her husband’s Porsche and laptop (that’s why he left her), adding that that somebody was better off in her favorite place, the Medical City.

Halle Berry’s New Look as Storm in ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’

In case there were any lingering questions about it, Halle Berry is most definitely returning to the "X-Men" series. Director Bryan Singer tweeted definitive proof on Monday, posting a pic from the "X-Men: Days of Future Past" set that features the gorgeous and pregnant Oscar-winning actress in her full Storm costume.

That costume may look familiar -- indeed, it unmistakably proclaims "STORM!" with a crack of lightning and boom of thunder. But it has some notable differences from the uniform she wore in her previous "X-Men" outings. In "X-Men" (2000), "X2" (2003) and "X-Men: The Last Stand" (2006), Storm had a much more official-looking outfit, one made of leather (natch) and sporting the "X" insignia on both the belt and collar. This new costume is much more rugged and less flashy, coming across as kind of an "extreme sports" version of the outfit with its harness-like vest and decidedly less impressive cape/wings.
