Filipino-American social media personality and singer Bella Poarch has fans speculating about a possible collaboration between her and two members of Blackpink after photos them all together recently surfaced online.
One of the admins (or persons tasked at handling her social media pages) of Bella shared on the official Facebook page of the Fil-Am artist photos of her with Blackpink members Rosé and Jennie in Los Angeles, California. The three girls were spotted hopping inside a car in one photo and entering the elevator of a building in another.
Earlier this month, the 24-year-old TikTok personality recently made an appearance on the social media platforms of fashion magazine Elle and played a game called Song Association.
In the said game, she revealed that she revealed that she’s a fan of K-Pop and that she would love to collaborate with one of Blackpink’s members, Rosé.
“My dream collaboration is Rosé. I love K-Pop and I love Blackpink. I’m obsessed,” Bella said.
Bella Poarch, who is cousins with Bretman Rock, is also proud of her Filipino roots.
From holding TikTok’s most liked video of all time for doing a lip-sync of Millie B’s “Sophie Aspin Send” to releasing the hit “Build a Bitch,” Bella Poarch had raised the flag for Filipinos with her immense talent.
She also proved she never walked away from her Filipino roots even after leaving the Philippines for the United States as she showed off her Tagalog-speaking skills in a recent video which has since gone viral.
Warner Music Philippines, Bella Poarch’s record label in the country, compiled random videos of her talking in Tagalog.
In one video, a netizen praised Bella for the way she utters Tagalog words, prompting her to respond with: “Ang cute ko daw magsalita ng Tagalog. Mas cute ka bhie.”
Showing to her fans the majestic view in front of her, Bella couldn’t help but quip how beautiful the sight was from where she was sitting.
“Ang ganda ng view. Gusto niyong makita ‘yung view? Ang ganda kasi ng view eh. Share ko. Ganda ‘no? Malamig? Oo malamig dito kasi gabi na. Ang daming helicopters toda,” she said.
In a separate video where she can be seen hanging out with Bretman Rock, the 23-year-old pop artist tried to learn a few Ilocano words from her Hawaii-based cousin.
“Naimas mo,” she said, repeating what Bretman told her. As instructed by her cousin, she added: “Oh yeah, ang sarap! Sino ang nagluto?”
Meanwhile, Bella clarified she doesn’t know how to speak Bisaya as she hails from up North and said she had only gone to Pangasinan and Manila back when she was still in the Philippines.
“Hindi po ako marunong mag-Bisaya. Kasi hindi po ako taga-Bisaya eh. Hindi pa ako nakapunta sa Visayas. Hanggang Pangasinan lang ako tapos pumunta ako du’n sa Manila para i-take ‘yung flight papunta sa Amerika. ‘Yun lang,” she said.
Reiterated that she hadn’t been anywhere else in the Philippines except her hometown and two other places outside of it. “Hindi pa ako nakapunta sa Palawan tapos sa Boracay.”
A video of her belting out Jessa Zaragosa was also included the compilation of footage.
