presscon for her concert Charice
Infinity World Tour at the Smart Araneta Coliseum created a lot of buzz. Not only with her new look but also with the
issue. Charice, now 19 years old, was asked straightforward by the press present if she is a lesbian or Tomboy and Charice was clearly not happy with the question.
neither denied nor confirmed the tomboy issue. Instead, Charice replied: “Why would you ask me that question? I think that‘s a very inappropriate question. For me, just love me. I‘m a person. If you think I‘m a boy or a girl or if I look like a boy, then fine. I‘m Charice. 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.”
was also asked about her new look and Charice said that it is her edgy new look to keep up with her international career and be like Rihanna and Avril Lavigne and to be her real self. “I know some people think that this is very rebellious but it’s not. It’s just me evolving. It’s me transforming into another person that is totally me.”
Some in her management she said, wanted her to look like Selena Gomez instead but there are some who are supportive of her Rihanna/Avril Lavigne look now.
Charice has been largely ridiculed on the net with her new look, comparing her new style and look to male comedian Maverick of the comedy duo Ariel and Maverick and to Aiza Seguerra.
