“I know what people think…I don’t care.”
“This is the look that I want. The only thing that you can do is move on”.
“This is me. This is who I am. I just don’t want to stay a person that I don’t like….I’ve been thinking about it for years and years. This is a dream come true for me”.

She is aware of her role to the youth as a model, hence she indicated that she will remain the same. Despite her new look, her attitude will stay the same.
The international singer’s new look gained several reactions from fans, media and critics and some people raised their eyebrows specially the people in the Philippines. Is Charice has gone out of “the closet”?
People’s reactions have been mixed on her controversial new look. But Pempengco’s fellow Filipino singers like Geneva Cruz, Basil Valdez, and Kuh Ledesma have expressed their support for her “edgier style”.
Cruz said “Maybe she was bored. You know, Britney Spears shaved off all her hair and went around bald one time.” I understand her, I grew up in this business.”
Kuh advised Charice to just ignore the nasty comments. “People talked about me the same way before” said Kuh.
Charice feels like a rock rendition of her music taste and style. She had an amazing voice. She can sing with the best singers in the music industry and other best singers in the world. She is able to sing anything in any way with her own style.
Some people are too conservative when it comes to accepting other people’s way of “lifestyle”. Why people make such a big deal about sexuality?
Sexual preference, a gay or not does not make less of a person.
