Billboard.com put Charice, GLEE’s Sunshine Corazon, on the hot seat as she answered viewer questions LIVE. Here are some of the highlights of the 30-minute affair, which tackled her career plans, her personal life, her rumored romance with American Idol runner-up David Archuleta, and her new chic hairstyle!
The interviewer commented on Charice new hairdo, saying that the young singer looked “fierce”.
Charice has left her old flowing curls for a new hairstyle that’s reminiscent of Beyonce and that of Japanese actress Chiaki Kuriyama, who portrayed the role of a high school student-slash-mafia-bodyguard from the hit movie Kill Bill.
Charice said she loves trying new things, and boy, were we surprised.
Fame or Education
Charice was asked about what she think she would be if she didn’t become a singer.
“I’d probably be a student,” Charice said.
Charice added, “I always wanted to be a singer but if they would make me choose between education and being a singer, I would choose education.
Charice said she still spends two hours every day for studying. She revealed that she has shifted from Communication, her original major, to IT (Information Technology).
“I actually took BA Communication but (laughs)… I’m a computer addict so IT is perfect for me. It’s hard at online school, it’s really hard… but I really have to do it. I’m a scholar and I don’t want to lose it,” Charice said.
The term “scholar” is an English Filipino-ism, which refers to someone who studies under a scholarship grant.
The conversation shifted onto the latest movie that Charice watched.
Charice cited Christina Aguilera’s “Burlesque”, which she said she loved very much. Charice then went on to sing a freestyle line from the movie, mimicking Christina Aguilera’s voice.
“I was so inspired by that movie,” Charice said.
The interviewer was pleasantly shocked, saying “I just got so many goosebumps when you did that. That was awesome.” Then he asked Charice about what kind of film she would want to be in.
Charice said, “I’d want to be in a horror film.”
The interviewer was speechless, then grinned.
“You know the movie ‘Orphan’? I want to be like that, the kid… or maybe the Grudge. I just want to try different kinds of stuff.” said Charice.
Charice added,“ People know me as a simple, quiet, very ‘Sunshine Corazon’. I want to show something different so they’ll be like, ‘Oh! Wow, that’s a different side of Charice!’”
Charice-David A. Shippers
Charice was surprised and observably disconcerted.
Charice composed herself and said, “I think about friends… about family… but not David Archuleta! (laughs) I was with him a couple of days when ago when we did the Christmas Tree Lighting at the Grove (LA). And, uhm, he’s a great guy; he’s a great artist.
Much to the disappointment of fans, Charice categorically denied that she has a budding romance with American Idol runner-up Archuleta. She explained that David is a nice person, but there’s nothing going on between the two of them.
So yes, Charice-Archuleta isn’t likely to happen anytime soon.
Charice and Archuleta were rumoured to have a romantic liking for each other, after fans observed that the latter always heaps praises for Charice. Archuleta’s off-key singing in the couple’s duet in the Grove LA last November 21 was attributed by some observers to a classic case of nerves, as it was their first performance together.
Aside from Charice fans, MTV and the newspaper USA Today were also tuned to the Billboard.com interview. The two media giants also wondered why Charice has not been on the GLEE set for so long, and were also interested on the “status quo” of the rumored David-Charice romance.

Sunshine at New York’s “The Darby”
In a related development, the New York Post reported that Charice performed impromptu in The Darby, a new Long Island restaurant, Saturday night , November 27th.
Charice delivered hair-raising, goose bump-inducing versions of Michael Buble’s “Sway” and Michael Jackson’s “I’ll Be There.”
Charice received a standing ovation from the crowd, which included American Idol host Ryan Seacrest, according to the New York Post.
