Catriona Gray changes mind, now chooses crown over love

Looks like Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray had a change of heart as she has now chosen her crown over love.

It can be recalled that just before the beauty queen went to Bangkok, Thailand for the Miss Universe 2018, she had an interview with Boy Abunda. During the “Fast Talk” segment, Abunda asked Catriona, “korona o pag-ibig”. Catriona gave a gleeful answer, “pag-ibig.”

It seemed like the “crown” had an effect on Catriona’s relationship with boyfriend Clint Bondad, as the beauty queen reportedly had a shift in her priorities.

During her interview on “TV Patrol” following her homecoming press conference, Catriona was asked again, “crown or love?”

The Miss Universe 2018 now gave a different answer, “The crown muna.”

Catriona explained, “It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. And the distance (between me and Clint Bondad). I’m a very focused person so I really do want to give everything I have to this journey.”

Catriona’s answer also came after reports started stirring that she and her longtime boyfriend Clint have broken up. The couple are still mum on whether to confirm or deny the reports.

The issue continued to create buzz after Clint Bondad’s “awkward” answers on questions about Catriona during his guesting on Eat Bulaga over the weekend.

Vic Sotto asked Clint on the whereabouts of Catriona to which the model replied, “Sa tingin ko, dito sa Pilipinas, ‘no?”

“Sa tingin mo?” Vic continued to ask.

“Yeah, I’m not sure. I’m not sure,” Clint replied.

When asked if it’s possible that Catriona would be his “asawa”, Clint replied, “I’m young.”

On a lighter note, Catriona is ecstatic and hopeful for the future. She is looking forward to pursuing her love for music. Catriona shared, “There are so many things I’m passionate about, and one of them is definitely music. After my reign as Miss Universe, I would love to pursue music, perhaps be able to write my own songs and collaborate with different artists, and put some music out there for the world to hear.”

She’s definitely going to be very busy it seems.
