The raw moment was captured by audience members, who uploaded on YouTube clips of the tearful superstar, as she poured her heart out about feeling empty despite her successful 15-year career, and as she struggled through her performance.
Geronimo, 29, was recalling a time when she watched videos of her music idol, the late Michael Jackson, where the “King of Pop” is surrounded by screaming and crying fans eager to get a glimpse or a touch of him.
“Grabe po. I realized, na hindi po pala ako handa doon,” she said, her voice shaking.
Considered the foremost pop performer in the Philippines, Geronimo rose to stardom in 2003 when she won the talent search “Star for a Night,” and has since become a multi-hyphenate with sold-out concerts and albums, dozens of brand endorsements, TV shows and box-office hits.
Speaking to her Las Vegas audience, Geronimo said: “Ginusto ko pong maibahagi ang talento ko pero, hindi pala ako handa sa mga kasama doon sa hiningi ko, lalong-lalo na ‘yung pressure to always do good, maging role model ka, maging perpekto ka. Mahirap po.”
At this point unable to hold her tears, Geronimo apologized to the audience.
“I’m so sorry. I hope na kayanin ko po, i-survive ko ‘tong gabing ito, because you paid. Gumastos po kayo para mabigyan kayo ng entertainment. I’m sorry,” she said.
