MANILA, Philippines - Parokya ni Edgar front man Chito Miranda is "very happy" for his good friend Angel Locsin and her boyfriend, Philippine Azkals striker Phil Younghusband.
"Sobrang nakakakilig. Kasi hindi ako sanay na girl si Angel, e. Talagang macho talaga 'yun, e. So, kapag nakikita mo siya na may boyfriend, cute! Nakakatuwa lang!" Miranda was quoted to have said by PEP in an article posted on Sept. 5.
On the old rumors romantically linking him to the actress, the musician recalled, "Minsan nga sinasakyan na lang namin kasi nakakatawa lang. 'Di talaga namin pinapansin 'yan. It was just funny for us."
He added that they still hang out together, although not as much as they used to.
Miranda then shared an anecdote that happened around the time when Younghusband was still courting Locsin.
"Isang beses lang, n'ung pinapunta niya ako n'ung magkikita sila at ipapakilala niya si Phil. Kasi, siyempre, tropa ko 'yan, e. Babantayan ko sana si Angel, pero sobrang bait ni Phil, e.
"Parang nagalit pa nga si Angel sa akin na, bakit daw sobrang bait ko kay Phil. Sabi niya, dapat medyo pa-kuya daw dapat ako sa kanya, para kilatisin si Phil. Pero, wala, e. Sobrang bait talaga ni Phil, e. And I'm very happy for both of them now," he related.
Meanwhile, Miranda said that his current girlfriend, Neri Naig, has never gotten jealous of his relationship with Locsin.
"Alam ng girlfriend ko na tropa ko lang talaga si Angel. Mas lalaki pa nga sa 'kin si Angel, e. Kayang-kaya niya nga akong gulpihin," he told PEP, laughing.
