Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 31 min ago
  The last time Rick Price held court in Manila (his Valentine concert in 2019), he noticed that among his usual audience were a good number of "younger generation fans singing along" to his songs. That sight promptly sparked an idea. "We decided that it would be cool to rerelease some new versions of two of my most well-known songs as a way to say thank you," the Australian singer-songwriter told the Inquirer in a recent email interview. Through Sony Music, Rick was able to breathe new life to his well-loved ballads by having Filipino artists on board: Morissette Amon in "Heaven Knows" and Regine Velasquez in "Nothing Can Stop Us Now."

Remembering Menggie

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 37 min ago
  The image of a happy and a sad masks side by side has long been the symbol of show business. As we battle the pandemic, show biz people are living up to that symbol. While we are rejoicing about the recovery of Iza Calzado and Christopher de Leon from Covid-19, we're also mourning the loss of Mulatto singer Joey Bautista and seasoned actor Domingo "Menggie" Cobarrubias due to the raging virus. I got to meet Tito Menggie on the set of "Mano Po 5," where I had a cameo role. He struck me as a mild-mannered and respectable man. His demise serves as an alarm that the virus has gatecrashed into the glitzy world of show biz. The virus doesn't get starstruck to veer away from...

Rihanna intends to raise children—even without a partner

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 42 min ago
  In 10 years' time, Rihanna sees herself having children---three of them or maybe even four. "Ten years? I'll be 42! I will be ancient," the pop star jokingly said in an interview for the May issue of British Vogue magazine. And it doesn't really matter if she has to raise them with or without a partner. "I feel like society makes me want to feel like, 'Oh, you got it wrong...' They diminish you as a mother if there's not a dad in your kids' lives," she pointed out. "But the only thing that matters is happiness, that's the only healthy relationship between a parent and a child. The only thing that can raise a child truly ... is love." Rihanna has been neck-deep w...

Quarantine Agenda: Spruce up your home office desk

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 51 min ago
In my teens I remember joyously flipping through Wallpaper magazines, excitedly anticipating "Desk Job" on the last page, which was a full-page photograph of a stylised desktop of an anonymous figure. Think speculative fiction, but table toppers. The answers to this monthly game was released online, revealing a motley crew of phantom figures, from Damien Hirst to Santa Claus. I was equally captivated by the playful fantasy element as I was by the idiosyncratic tabletops and the beautiful objects that populated them. I've always dreamed of having a picturesque landscape of a desk but, alas, it's a plan that was never to pan out in my professional life. One of my first jobs as a fashio...
