Rhap Salazar talks about controversial tweet (VIDEO)

Controversial singer Rhap Salazar had his first live interview regarding his controversial tweets on Friday night via ABS-CBN's "Aquino & Abunda Tonight."

Earlier in July, Rhap, who was out of the country that time, took to Twitter to express "hatred" regarding artists who lip-sync on television.

The tweet became even more controversial because it was posted right after the opening number of "ASAP 20" where a number of artists performed.

A lot of netizens reacted negatively to the message, and while some celebrities expressed support, a lot of them also reacted against Ralph's choice of words.

Even "AAT" host Boy Abunda said in a commentary mid-July that ended in giving the singer a career advice to review his brand essence and to discover what makes these non-singers tick.

In his "AAT" interview, Ralph said he doesn't feel the need to apologize for those tweets.

He also said that he just wanted to express what he feels as a singer and that it's the act of lip-syncing that he "hates" and not the artists who do it.

"I'm not pinpointing any artist, it's a general one," he said about his controversial tweets.

He admitted, though, that he feels the industry is "a little unfair" because the non-singers are given more opportunities than those who can really sing.

However, the host, who's also a talent manager, told Ralph that "it's not all about the voice, it's the whole package. It's not about just the looks. It's a combination of many na minsan hindi natin alam kung ano, 'di ba? Wala talagang formula."

Check out Ralph's interview below.
