Filipino diva Charice who is having a concert today (March 9) at the Araneta Coliseum shocks her Filipino fans when she arrived sporting a new look; blonde short hair and a tattoo on her left forearm.
The 19-year-old explains why she changes her good girl image into a more edgy look.
“Yung ibang people sa management, gusto nila yung look ko parang Selena Gomez. The other one, they want me to be more like Avril Lavigne, which is what I like. Or more like Rihanna. That’s what I like. That’s what we’re trying to do. I think everybody’s shocked. This is such a huge step for me and I love it. 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,”
The tattoo which she got in Singapore says “Love Eternally” with an infinity sign in the middle.
“The tattoo that I have has a meaning. The tattoo says ‘love eternally’ and it has an infinity sign. It’s for my love for people, for my fans and for my family, for everybody. So, every time I do something I always have reason,”
With her boyish hair and tattoo, her critics are out once again saying that she looks like a lesbian and even compared her new look to Aiza Seguerra – a Filipina singer who is openly lesbian.
“Are you kidding me? I’ve read tons of negative comments and I don’t care. Whatever they think maybe if I look somebody or whoever I don’t mind. I mean this is the look that I want. So, the only thing you can do is to move on,”
