Maja meets J Lo up close and personal

Maja Salvador had her own fan moment when she saw her idol, Jennifer Lopez up close in a chance encounter at a five-star hotel where both of them were staying.

“Parang may isang room doon, tapos parang napatingin ako. Dumiretso na ako, tapos inisip ko, ‘Parang nakita ko si J.Lo.’ Tapos tinawag ko yung pinsan ko, naiiyak ako at sobrang bilis ng pulso ko parang na-e-excite ako. Sobra akong kinakabahan,” Maja said in an interview at the meet and greet for her new endorsement Coby Kyros in SM Manila on Tuesday, November 27.

Since she was only a few meters away from J.Lo in the hotel gym, Maja didn’t pass up the chance to see how her idol stays fit.

“Sabi ko, ‘Oh my God, nasa treadmill si J.Lo!’ Ang gusto ko gawin, magpalit ulit ako ng pang-gym outfit kaso hindi puwede kasi basang-basa ako. Kakatapos ko lang mag-swimming. So,ang ginawa ko, tinitigan ko muna. Ang galing ng mga drills na ginagawa niya sa treadmill. Basta sabay-sabay sila nag-tre-treadmill nung dancers niya na babae,” Maja recalled.

Souvenir shot

Seeing JLo was not enough. Maja wanted a souvenir shot with her idol. So she changed her clothes and prepared to face JLo.

“Inaantay ko siya tapos bigla siyang lumabas. Kinausap ko siya, sabi ko, ‘Hi J.Lo! Can I have a picture with you?’ Tapos huminto siya pero parang pinapa-diretso na siya nung bodyguard niya, pero siya huminto. So nagpupunas siya ng pawis niya tapos sabi niya, ‘Can you just meet me downstairs because I’m kind of a mess right now?’ Sabi ko, ‘Please, please just one picture?’ Tapos pinicture-an ko siya. Medyo malabo pero nag-smile naman siya,” Maja said.

J.Lo’s concert has inspired Maja to perform even better. 
 
“Yung performance niya iba eh. Na parang inisip ko, kung kaya ni J.Lo, kaya din natin na Filipino artists. Kaya katulad nito na kapag may mall show or performance ako sa susunod, talagang pagbubutihin ko iyon kasi iba, nakaka-inspire si J.Lo.”

Maja watched the concert with friends Kim Chiu and Kakai Bautista among others.

“Siyempre iba kasi napapanuod mo lang yung mga music video niya. Sobrang fan ka ng mga songs niya, isinasayaw mo yung mga kanta niya. Pini-perform namin yung mga kanta niya, tapos si J.Lo nakausap ko, nakaharap ko. Yung sobrang idol mo andoon,” Maja gushed.

She added, “Sobrang saya, sobrang fun talaga. Happiest day of my life yesterday, November 26, 2012.”
