The Popsters are asking: what’s happening with Sarah Geronimo?
For two days, the Popstar Princess went missing on social media, as her official Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts were all deactivated. With an upcoming concert next month, a potential album (her new single “Ganito” recently topped the iTunes Philippines singles chart), and a new movie in the works, Sarah’s sudden absence on social media sent netizens buzzing as to what’s up. The Popsters all had their own theories as to why she disappeared on social media, but now we know what happened.
Sarah disconnected from the digital world to take a breather and connect with people in the real world.
The Popstar Princess reasoned that she wanted to refresh herself ahead of her major concert by spending time with the people who matter to her. But instead of doing so digitally, she wanted to be able to interact with them in a more personal and meaningful manner. She didn’t want to be “kilome, kilome, kilometrong layo” when doing so. Sarah would rather meet them face to face.
“Sa lahat ng curious sa pagkawala ko these past few days, I took a short break para mag-refresh—to get ready for one of the biggest events in my life. Kinakailangan ko po ng oras para makasama ang mga taong tulad ko na nagpupursigi para maging successful ang concert na ito. Iba po ang nagagawa pag personal mo silang nakakasama at nakikilala,” Sarah shared.
“We should be thankful sa social media because pinapadali niya yung pag-uusap natin. Mag-online ka lang makukumusta mo na yung friends mo. Pero at the same time, nawala yung intimacy ng pag-uusap. Instead na kita mo yung mga ngiti nila, smileys na lang ang makikita mo. ‘Yun yung namiss ko, kaya I deactivated my social accounts. I wanted to disconnect online and reconnect with the people that matter to me face to face.”
No matter how convenient communication is in the digital world, iba pa rin talaga ang face to face kulitan in the real world. It’s a great way to re-energize ourselves; and it should be done more often rather than having less of it, like in Sarah’s case.
