MANILA, Philippines -- Singer Karylle said she is looking to international pop star Beyonce Knowles as her "peg" in handling love and life and being in the limelight.

Karylle said she aims to emulate Beyonce's way of handling her personal life -- especially when it comes to her romantic relationships -- despite being a public figure.

"Base sa research ko sa Hollywood stars, si Beyonce na never umamin pero bigla nalang naging buntis, 'yun ang pinakamatagal na nakita kong happy," Karylle told members of the press during the launch of Metro magazine's July issue, where she is featured on the cover.

Beyonce, who is married to American record producer and rapper Jay-Z, gave birth to their first child in January 2012.

"So siya 'yung ginawa ko pong peg," Karylle said, adding in jest, "So one day makikita niyo nalang po akong buntis pero kasal, pero hindi niyo alam."

"Pero 'di ba, siya 'yung pinaka-happy. Kasal na siya eh, pero hindi niya inamin at hindi siya nag-share ng pictures," Karylle added.

'Sharing' through music

The "It's Showtime" host has made her first steps in emulating the international pop star by keeping her relationship private with another celebrity singer, Spongecola vocalist Yael Yuzon.

"For me kasi, it's hard to overshare, but I don't think we're hiding anything or naging kuripot lang sa pag-share," Karylle said of her and Yuzon's being secretive of the status of their relationship.

"But as I always say, everything that I want share is in the music, it's in the song 'Basically,' its in the song 'Tambay,' it's in the whole album of Spongecola," Karylle said.

For his part, Yuzon has also preferred to keep mum on the status of their relationship, but has said he always makes time for the "Kitchen Musical" actress, and admitted having spent time with her family.
