Ai-Ai delas Alas still thanked the netizens who bashed her recent live performance of Ice Cream, Blackpink’s hit collaboration with Selena Gomez.
The comedienne-actress performed the song over the weekend for the opening number of the GMA reality-talent competition The Clash, where she’s one of the judges along with Christian Bautista and Lani Misalucha.
Ai-Ai confidently began her performance, saying “Gusto niyo ‘to! Yeah!”, and even changed her outfit thrice.
Netizens had mixed reactions to her opening number, with some entertained while others — mostly K-pop fans — criticizing The Clash’s judge for her bungling the tune and lyrics.
Ai-Ai became a trending topic on Twitter and her production number quickly generated memes on social media.
The comedienne, however, seemed unbothered by the criticisms as she took time to thank them in an Instagram post.
“Sa lahat ng mga natuwa salamat po, next time mas gagalingan ko pa para lalo kayong maging masaya,” said Ai-Ai.
“Sa mga bashers, thank you din napansin n’yo ako at salamat sa maraming oras n’yo hehehe,” she added, ending her statement with the hashtag #yearningtobethe5thgirlofBP.
In a reply to a fan, Ai-Ai shared that she allotted one week to learn the song “lalo na rap na Korean hehe mahirap din.”
Ai-Ai said she is gearing up for another performance of a Blackpink single — Lovesick Girls — for The Clash’s grand finals.
