If you watch Oprah or Ellen, then you probably have already met this girl right here. This is 18-year-old Filipino singer Charice and she leaped into the hearts of America when she sang on Ellen a few years ago. Charice is going to shoot a guest spot on Glee at the end of this month, and she recently talked to ABS-CBN television about how she’s preparing for the role.
Charice is not preparing by taking acting lessons or by working on a variety of shank side-eyes to throw at the resident set bitch Lea Michele. No, Charice is preparing by getting Botox in her FACE! WHYYYYY?! The Associated Press reports:
Charice Pempengco says she prepared for her debut on the hit TV show “Glee” by getting Botox and an anti-aging procedure “to look fresh on camera.”
The 18-year-old Charice, whose singing career rocketed after appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ and Oprah Winfrey’s talk shows, underwent a 30-minute Thermage skin-tightening procedure and Botox to make her “naturally round face” more narrow, celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo told ABS-CBN television.
Charice, in the same interview, said last week’s face makeover was part of her big preparations for her appearance on the hit show’s second season. She starts filming at the end of this month.
“All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry? So of course there is tremendous pressure,” Charice said.
“It’s really a blessing,” she said, adding she was “very proud to be an Asian, very proud to be Filipino.”
More fresh on camera?! Does Charice play a newborn baby on that shit?! Charice looks like she’s an 8-year-old who doesn’t even get wrinkles when she frowns, so how much more fresh-faced does she want to get?
Why doesn’t she just get a silicone titty implant stuffed into her forehead and re-attach an umbilical cord to her belly button, so she can walk around looking like a fetus. She can douse herself in amniotic fluid and nibble on a placenta panini to really make it look believable. You can’t get any fresher than that.
Seriously, in about 50 years the world will be filled with giant walking fetuses.
UPDATE: Charice’s rep says that she didn’t get Botox to freshen up her face. The rep claims she got shot up with Nicole Kidman’s nectar of choice to fix a jaw problem similar to TMJ. The rep explained: “You’ve seen her face – she doesn’t have a wrinkle in it so she wouldn’t need it for cosmetic purposes. The Glee people are thrilled with the way she looks which is why she got the part.”
