Charice has laughed off suggestions she will be spending Valentine’s Day with ‘someone special,’ insisting she will take time instead to be with her family.
The Filipino singing sensation was speaking to the media upon her arrival in Manila to record a TV special, “Home For Valentine’s,” and was asked who she would actually be spending time with on February 14.
The teenage diva has been dogged with romantic links, particularly to fellow singer and friend David Archuleta. And while she must, by now, be tired of having to deny everything beyond friendship with the young warbler, she happily told the press that she would not be spending the romantic holiday particularly romantically.
“Valentine? My family,” she answered with a smile. “I want more time with my family. As now, I can get everything my family needs.”
However, the Laguna-born songstress did admit that someone has “expressed interest” in her, describing him as a “foreign singer” but declining to give any more information. When asked if it was David Archuleta, she quickly replied, “No.”
In fact, Charice has continually stressed that she is focused on her career at the moment and is not ready to get involved with any suitors – even though her mother has given her the freedom to. Although it matches the advice reportedly given to her by her “fairy godmother,” Oprah Winfrey, it’s clear that the 18-year-old is committed to a career that she has sought since she was 7.
“Home For Valentine’s” is set to go on air in the Philippines on February 13, with Charice due to begin her long-awaited 4-gig solo tour of Japan 8 days later. She will fly back to Los Angeles on Tuesday (Feb 1) to continue work on her new album, amongst other engagements.
She is also expected to continue filming episodes for “Glee,” on which co-creater Ryan Murphy confirmed she would be making 5 appearances at the end of the year – but we understand this to mean ‘end of the second series.’
