In a J-14 Magazine feature, Charice has spoken up to reveal her insecurity over her height and her decision to eventually accept it as part of who she is.
J-14 Magazine, which is one of the most popular magazines for teenagers in the US, includes the Filipino singing sensation in a special feature in its February issue titled “Stars’ Secret Struggles,” focusing on teenage insecurities.
In the magazine, Charice admits she was especially conscious of her height when she met Taylor Swift at the 41st Annual Songwriter’s Hall of Fame Award ceremony in June last year. The two also appeared along with Enrique Iglesias and John Legend at the Target Corps National Meeting in Minneapolis in August.
She said that she had been excited about meeting the leading country singer until she discovered how much taller the Pennsylvania-born singer is.
“I met Taylor Swift and I was like, ‘Oh man, I have to do something about my height’,” Charice is quoted as saying. “People tell me, ‘You’re so small in real life.’ I am insecure about my height.”
Charice also admits that she has tried to change her style to compensate for her insecurity and turned to wearing heels for a time before realizing they just weren’t for her. ”Heels just kill me. I can only stand for like an hour,” she says.
There is no secret to the fact that Charice is a major hit with teenagers in the US and around the world. J-14 followers even voted the Filipino diva as the “Icon of Tomorrow” in an online poll in November. So, there can be little doubt that she is a role model for young girls across America.
As one of a number celebrities to speak about their personal insecurities, it’s obvious Charice shares her thoughts in an effort to convince other ‘short’ girls not to worry about their image.
Meanwhile, in the same issue, romantic links between Charice and David Archuleta are again denied. Charice is quoted as saying that her songs are not dedicated to the 2008 American Idol runner-up.
“I dedicate my songs to my friends and family, not to David Archuleta,” she says.
