Astrology might be taken tongue-in-cheek by most of us, but it’s welcome news when we’re told Charice is set to stay in the entertainment stratosphere till 2055.
According to the astrologer “Paloma,” the stars suggest that the Laguna-born songstress can expect to enjoy more than 45 years at the top in show business, but did warn that it wouldn’t be all clear seas and blue skies for her.
“According to her stars, she’s on a really good 45-year run,” Paloma stated. “She’s going to be popular even into her 50s. That doesn’t mean she is not going to have problems. She has to deal with the painful polishing process along the way.”
“Paloma” was part of a panel of 6 media personalities taking part in a sponsored Coffee Talk event titled “Crossroads: Who’s Going Where?” at the plush Makati Shangri-La Hotel in Manila at the end of January, just before the Chinese New Year on February 3.
A variety of Filipino leaders in politics, sports and entertainment were under the spotlight, with not everyone being blessed with good news. However, none of the panelists believed that Charice would fail to become one of the biggest names in music around the globe.
And how can we argue with that? She may have been helped in no small way by her association with Oprah and David Foster, but the teenage diva is now one of the leading names in US entertainment – with Charice herself claiming that her childhood dreams have come true.
It has been three years since Charice made her first American TV appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and since then her ‘star’ has rocketed upwards. In a few weeks she will begin her first solo tour in Japan, having won over the media and music lovers there, while her long-awaited, much-hyped and much-demanded return to the international phenomenon that is “Glee” expected sometime this month also.
“Paloma,” by the way, made her predictions based on Chinese Astrology. The Chinese New Year passed on February 3, making 2011 the Year of the Metal Rabbit, while Charice was born in the Year of the Monkey (1992).
And, with Charice set to turn 19 this coming May 10, 45 more years cruising at the top of the music (and no doubt acting) world means a career that will slow down when she is … 64 years old! Tickets for her farewell tour are not available… quite yet!
