"My Teachers Disliked My Poetry!" -Rico Blanco

Back to school fever is still on! That is why we have been asking YOUR favorite artists about their fondest school memories. 

While on a break from playing in our MYX 3on3 basketball games, MYXph got to chat with singer/songwriter Rico Blanco. He recalls that his Filipino teachers didn't really dig his compositions back then. "Hindi nila type 'yung mga poetry ko. Kung paano ko sinusulat 'yung mga kanta ko, ganu'n din mga ginagawa ko sa school", Blanco says. Now, we are guessing these unappreciative members of the faculty go "Estudyante ko 'yan!" everytime they hear one of Rico's hit songs.

Click the video below for the rest of our exclusive interview with Rico "The Universe" Blanco (as he is called on MYX 3on3) and watch out for his latest release entitled "Amats". Watch MYX 3on3 on Saturday, June 9 at 6PM on the MYX channel.
