"No! Thank you! I'm busy," says Pascual when asked if he is interested to hold office in the government.
"I don't have the knack for politics. Pinagdarasal ko na lang sila," adds Pascual, during the launch of his new endorsement for MegaPro Plus Megasound videoke machines ay Winford Hotel and Casino in Sta. Cruz, Manila recently.
Pascual confirms he has received offers to run in the national elections but he turned them down.
"Oo marami. Senador, mayor! Salamat. Mabaril pa ako. At saka nakakatakot."
At the same event was Wacky Kiray, mainstay of "I Can See Your Voice" and one of the cast of "Bagani" on ABS CBN.
Pascual thanked those who watch his primetime series "Since I Found You" which is about to end on air in two weeks time.
"Maraming salamat sa lahat ng sumusubaybay sa 'Since I Found You' since the beginning. As we near the end, we invite you to stay with us for the next two weeks," says Pascual.
The hearthrob says that several projects have been lined up for him, including shows abroad and movies. But if he is not doing anything, Pascual says he would sleep.
"Dinadaan ko na lang sa tulog. At saka hindi naman ako ma-date na tao. Kung wala naman akong gagawin, natutulog lang talaga ako."
Pascual also says that he wants to record a new CD as he looks for new materials that will suit him.
"Naghahanap din ako ng new materials na babagay sa akin. In the past puro covers ang laman ng albums ko. So hopefully, bago matapos ang 2018. We'll see," he says.
Pascual also hopes to have a duet with his son Inigo on his next album. "Isa sa mga bonding moment namin ni Inigo ay ang mag-videoke. Mahilig kaming kumanta. Pero si Inigo is into composing songs din." (Tyson Nessman)
