Scheduled to premiere in Manila this coming Tues, December 20 and will run ‘til January 1, 2017 at the Meralco Theater, Hello Kitty (HK) was interviewed for the upcoming stage show “Hello Kitty Live – Fashion and Friends” and her role in the play. Like any other star when announcing a new movie or show, she was interviewed by the show’s promoter in the Philippines: Royale Chimes Concerts and Events Inc. (RCCE).
Here’s a recap of the interview:
RCCE: Hello Kitty! You are everywhere, but also, somehow, unreachable…
HK: Yes, I know! In fact, I’m ‘going public’ for a very important reason. I want to send a key message to all of my friends and fans and I thought the best way to do that would be to put on a great stage show. My show will be a unique live experience where everyone will discover my real life, my world, my secrets and all that’s important to me. It will be the perfect show for all children and families, but not forgetting my fans of all ages!
RCCE: That’s fantastic! What is the show about actually?
HK: It’s the story about the beginning of my journey when I was full of ambition for my future. However, I find that before I can achieve my dreams, I am faced with a great challenge. Luckily with the help of my dear friends, My Melody, Dear Daniel, Mimmy and many more, you will see me taking on this opportunity that will change my life forever. Sorry, I can’t tell you more though. You will have to catch the full story at the theatre!
RCCE: Everybody loves Hello Kitty, but until now we haven’t been able to really get to know you. What made you decide to get acquainted with your fans now?
HK: I thought it was the right time to share my real life with my friends. The public has the right to know more, to discover my real everyday life, to see who my true friends are, the places where I hang out, and, in particular, the values that I hold.
RCCE: We know that friendship is in your motto: “You can never have too many friends”. But what are the other values that you hold?
HK: Hard work, loyalty, kindness, study. But, yes, above all friendship.
RCCE: Speaking of friends… apart from your usual group, there are some very famous friends of yours involved in the show, right?
HK: Well, my special friend Charli XCX is appearing in the story, as well as providing some great hits for the soundtrack. Also my good friends Clean Bandit, Kylie Minogue, Flo Rida, Bruno Mars and many more are also supporting me by being part of the incredible soundtrack in the show.
RCCE: We’ve heard another very special friend is helping you…Can you tell us more?
HK: Well…Yes, my beloved Dear Daniel will be by my side. He has always been with me in fact. We grew up together. He is my rock, and the love of my life. Ohhhh, you’re making me blush now…
RCCE: It seems that you remain very rooted in those values you talked about, so fame and show business are not corrupting you?
HK: Absolutely not! I’m strongly rooted to everything I believe in and hold dear! Friendship, humility and kindness are the most powerful way to spread positivity. These integral parts of life are easy, they don’t cost anything and best of all they make people happy.
