Charice “I Am What I Am”

Charice “I Am What I Am”

Charice gave an exclusive interview to Boy Abunda.  

Boy: Everybody is talking about you…Let’s start here. Why have you avoided the media?

Charice: When there are big issues that come out, of course I’m afraid because I’m still human. I’m very careful to the point that I don’t know anymore what I should say just so people’s reaction to it will be neutral. I don’t want to suddenly say something and then everything will be negative.  I gave myself a break to think what I should do, what next steps I need to take so that everything will get better.  This is why I am facing you today.

Boy: Why are you breaking your silence now? Why are you speaking up now?

Charice: I’ve asked for a lot of signs; it’s really true when you feel it…I’ve done a lot of things for the ones I love, for my family for many years, I did it for them.  Now I feel that this time I’d like to do things for myself.

Boy:  These signs, the signs which are the reasons why we are talking today…

Charice: Yes.

ccp 223x300 Charice I Am What I Am Boy: Let’s start talking about your family. Straight to the point: your Mommy Racquel and yourself -  are you angry at each other?

Charice: Yes, we had a fight, I have to understand her because if she hurt me, I know she was hurt more because she’s a mother. As of now, we’re not fighting. We’re still in that stage trying to understand each other, but I have to give her credit for trying to understand the situation, so yes we fight but that is normal.

Boy: Your grandmother – you and your “Lola,” are you quarreling?

Charice: The truth is, no. I’ve seen her interview but we’re not quarreling. In the first place, we didn’t have a chance to talk yet. Perhaps because she has her own opinion and I accept that, I’ve seen her interview and I understood that that’s how she felt but we’re not fighting.

Boy: Who is Robert Yberra?

Charice: He is my godfather. I’ve seen a lot comments from him, things that he said to the media and to some people. I respect him as a person. As my godfather, I owe him a lot.

Boy: You’re not mad at him?

Charice: I don’t know why I’m not mad at him. Even if I think I should be mad at him for the things he’s been saying, but I don’t. We stayed at his house…the small things…he’s the one who taught me how to drive.  As long as he knows me as a person and I know him, I respect him, I owe him a lot. That’s all.

Boy: There were rumors that you left your house without telling anyone. Is it true?  What are the reasons? Tell us the story.

Charice: No, I don’t know what to say about that. I left home, yes, but I think Mom knew that it would get to that point. I left not because I don’t want to be there; I left because that was what I needed to do.

Boy: Charice, everyone’s asking now, where are you now? Where do you live here in the Philippines? Who do you consider your family now, especially at these times that you are going through a lot in your life?

Charice: I am staying right now in Cabuyao, Laguna. I am staying with a family that I didn’t expect will take a chance….

Boy: Gamble (taking a chance)?

Charice: Gamble, as in they will take a bullet for me. That’s why on my birthday…I am lucky there are people like that, I didn’t expect that. It’s hard to trust, it’s hard to find people like that, but I left it to God to give me a sign of who can help me.  They are here in Laguna – Mommy Ina, Daddy George, and older brother Glenn. I’ve known them for a long time since I was young, so when I got to their house that day, I felt comfortable already.

Boy: You’re home here, in this house?

Interview Part 1 with English Subtitles:


Charice Buzz Interview part 1/2 (English Sub) von Capofret-Chaster

Charice: Yes, I can say that when I come inside this house, I can lie down and say I am tired. I can do anything, I can pretend to be crazy, I can show them who the real Charice is without judgment from others.

Boy: This is what you call home.  What do you want to tell them, your new family?

Charice: I would like to thank them but I don’t feel that it’s enough to just say that. I’ve been here a month but it feels like years. I would like to say in front of all of you that I thank them very much. I hope people don’t think bad things about them because if it weren’t for them, I won’t be here today. I’d be so depressed so I am very thankful.

Boy: Are you hoping that you, Grandma, Mommy, and Obet will sit down and talk?

Charice: Maybe, I always think that everything will be ok.

Boy: Another rumor – your career is over and you are just sitting around in Cabuyao, Laguna doing nothing.

Charice: You know people here call me homeless?

Boy: Why homeless?

Charice: Homeless. I laughed because I realized that it is difficult. You try to be down to earth, and people still comment.  People see me walking around – that’s me. I’d rather do that than be seen as a high society person who doesn’t go out (in the streets).  I watch basketball tournaments which what I like to do now – this is what I want to do.

Boy: Let’s talk about your career. What happened to your career?

Charice: My US manager is still Marc Johnston, nothing changed. Glenn Aldueza here in the Philippines. It’s nice to have people who know your likes and dislikes. I’m going to have a recording, which will be featured in a big project. There are also TV shows but I can’t talk yet. If I am allowed to talk, I will.

Boy: In other words, there are things still happening in your career?

Charice: For my fans here in the Philippines, we are working on a third album, just for you.

Boy: This is what the Filipino people are waiting for, the most controversial thing. I am thankful that you are brave and you trust me in telling your story. When your pictures appeared in social networks, there were many questions and theories on your change in appearance, hair, clothing and your mannerisms.  Why the change?  There are speculations that you’re rebelling, you’re looking for attention. What do you want to say?

Charice: I don’t know how to explain. I was being truthful. I had a hair cut – all the choices that I made I know are very risky. I’ve done them because I want to, not because I was rebelling, not because I was hurt by a person or family, not because I am emotionally depressed. I did them because I wanted to.

Boy: This a hard question. I don’t know how to phrase this, only because I believe that we don’t owe anybody an explanation. I believe that sexual orientation and gender identity don’t have anything to do with talent, but I need to ask you, are you a lesbian?

Charice: Uncle Boy I have a chance to do this internationally…

Boy: Charice, you mean this conversation didn’t have to happen here?

Charice: I chose to do it here because I owe it to the Filipino people. I felt that they should be the ones to know what I am and who I am. Yes, I’m a tomboy. I don’t know why that’s a problem? Because for me, it’s not a problem. Now I want to ask forgiveness to those who don’t understand, to those who can’t accept me. I’m sorry. I can understand. For those who will accept and can accept me, thank you very much. And for what I have done I just want to say that I feel that a heavy weight has been lifted from me now (tears up voice slightly breaks). That I can leave the house without hiding anything, nor putting anyone down because I’m not hiding anything. Sorry Mommy, Carl…but this is me. I’m proud of myself, I love myself.  That is why I’ve done this. To my fans, I know a lot of you are disappointed, some of you will probably leave me. Sorry. You know I’m a sincere person. From the bottom of my heart, sorry. I understand.

Boy: Charice, I would like to clarify, you’re sorry not because you’re a lesbian, you’re sorry because….

Charice: I know that all of them got hurt.

Boy: They got hurt because you came out and they never expected this and in our culture this is not the normal and usual way and most of the time remains hidden so that the public and fans stay happy. But you chose to tell the truth because it was the right thing to do. Do you hope one day that you could work overseas in a world, in an industry, that won’t look at gender but talent?

Charice: I believe that someday, it will come. It’s just difficult at the moment. I believe that someday, we will come out and work as equals. That’s why sometimes they say: Are you gay? (And I answer) what, are you straight? It’s all the same.

Boy: How do you feel? Do you feel free?

Charice: Overflowing.

Interview Part 2 with English Subtitles:


Charice Buzz Interview 2/2 (English Sub) von f100000106818361

Boy: I’ll just push this, now that you’ve said you’re a lesbian, have you ever had a relationship with a fellow woman?

Charice: Yes, of course. I can’t tell who, but yes, I’ve experienced it.

Boy: But you needed to hide?

Charice: Yes TNT (laughs). (TNT means “tago nang tago” or always hiding.)

Boy: The last time I saw you, you were with Cheesa. Did you have a relationship with her?

Charice: Oh yes! No, it’s a joke! Because I remember we posted a picture captioned “my baby girl.”  Then we saw on our Twitter timelines, jowa/jowaers (bf or gf gay lingo for girlfriend), things like that, but no.

Boy: You’re so cute you can do that now.

Charice: (laughs) It’s not true, Cheesa is like a sister, a big sister.

Boy: Here is another question people are waiting for. Who is Alyssa Quijano in your life?

Charice: Wait, I’ll wipe my perspiration first….Uhm…We’ve known each other for a long time now. We met when she was 9 and I was 10. In singing contests, we used to compete with each other. We met again when we saw each other on X-factor. All I can say is, she is an inspiration in my life. She’s one of the people who gave me strength. At the moment, she’s a very special person.

Boy: You love Alyssa?

Charice: Sorry! I wish you could open my heart and see the answer.

Boy: If I could open your heart, is it a yes or no?

Charice: It beats strongly.

Boy: A strong heartbeat…Is Alyssa the reason why there is a misunderstanding between you and your family?

Charice: Maybe we could say it’s one of the expected reasons.

Boy: They’re saying she’s the one you are spending your money on, that your family don’t like her.

Charice: All I can say is that they don’t know her. They don’t know how amazing she is but I know she understands.

Boy: Did the two of you elope?

Charice: Uncle boy? Am I like a teenage boy?

Boy: Do you plan to get married someday?

Charice: One day, one day. Not at the moment but one day.

Boy: Where is God in your life now?

Charice: In my heart always but some people think I’ve have forgotten Him. But everyday I’m always say  “Lord, I leave everything up to You” because I know that He is the “One” guiding me.

Boy: What is your prayer to God?

Charice: My prayer is that people will accept me, that my family accept me.

Boy: Charice, from all of these, what is the most important lesson you’ve learned?

Charice: To Mommy and Carl… I wish I were more open, more honest because the most important (thing) in the relationship between parents and their kids is to be open to one another, whatever the reaction of the other will be. To all young people my age, people undergoing the same thing – be true to yourself. We know in ourselves who we are. Life is too short to play games. Just be free.

Boy: Again, for your fans.

Charice: Chasters, this is it! New chapter. Welcome, welcome to my crazy life. Enjoy the ride.

Boy: If there is a song that will capture what you want say to the world, what is that song? Sing me that song!

Charice: (Sings “F***ing Perfect” by PINK)

Boy: What was that favorite song you used to sing in most of the contests that you used to join? The one you and your Mom chose?

Charice: I might cry again.

Boy: I would love to hear you sing that song now that you’re free!

Charice: (sings Maghintay ka Lamang)

Boy: I love you Charice and thank you.

Charice as X-Factor (Philippines) Judge

Charice as X-Factor (Philippines) Judge

Charice is back in a singing contest, not as contestant but as judge this time. She joins Gary Valenciano, Martin Nievera and Pilita Corrales as judges in X-Factor Philippines. KC Concepcion hosts the show. X-Factor is a music competition franchise created by Simon Cowell in the United Kingdom. The winner will receive cash, other prizes and a recording contract. One of the most successful winners of the X-Factor (UK) is Leona Lewis.

Charice mentioned in some of her old interviews that she joined about 100 singing contests before Oprah and Ellen Degeneres invited her to guest in their shows. She was mentored by famous songwriter David Foster and performed with singers such as Celine Dion and Andrea Bocelli. She also appeared in the musical hit TV series Glee and some TV shows in other countries. She released two international albums “Charice” and “Infinity” wherein the first album landed 8th on the Billboard 200 Chart. With these impressive achievements under her name, she is more than qualified to be a judge in X-Factor. We can expect Charice to share her honest opinions and experiences that she has had in her long singing career.

During the live auditions, Charice sang some songs to entertain the audience in between taping breaks.

Infinity Japan Tour Videos 2012

Infinity Japan Tour Videos 2012

So we thought the solo concert in Japan last year was great already but those who witnessed this Infinity concert in Tokyo this time are swearing, this is way better than her past concerts! Even Charice’s musical director and keyboardist Troy Laureta tweeted “Love Japan! Perhaps one of the best shows we’ve done on the Infinity Tour! Thank you, Tokyo! We love you!” It was indeed an amazing, exhilarating show, with schoolgirls in uniform, teenage boys and girls, couples in their 20s, office workers in their 30s, people in their 40s, 50s and 60s rocking it! To those who have doubted Charice losing her voice, sorry to disappoint you but her voice was as strong and even better than ever. She has topped herself, if that is even possible.

Tyo 199x3002 Infinity Japan Tour Videos 2012Charice has matured so much as an artist. Her present style and image is more than fitting for this concert tour and we really have to respect her for that. To those who have criticized her new look, watching her live may be the only way to erase all doubts. She was so confident and relaxed, something that can be attributed to her being comfortable in her own skin, as she admitted in interviews that she has been wanting this look for the longest time.  The Japanese stylists even made her “Final Fantasy” inspired new look way better for her and yes, including the new tattoo! She looks fierce and sweet, tomboyish and feminine, edgy and soft, sexy and cute all at the same time. What else could you ask for?

Charice also sang a new song entitled “Everything”.  The story behind this song is that music.jp and rekochoku.jp,  two of the major music download sites for cellphones, called for song requests for Charice to cover.  The majority requested Japanese songstress Misia’s “Everything”.  So Charice ended up co-producing her own version of the song with new lyrics, different from that of Misia’s.

Charice’s “Everything” is now available via cellphone download only at rekochoku.jp and music.jp until June 30th.  It will also be available for both PC and cellphone download on another major music download site, mora.jp from March 21st.  There is still no word on its availability on Japan iTunes, nor has it been announced if it will be released worldwide.

So here’s a preview of the song as performed in Tokyo with special thanks to our ninja “Abilidades”:

“Everything”

At the end of the show, Charice filmed the audience using her iPhone including herself with her back to the audience.

Another highlight was Troy! He sang “If I Ain’t Got You”, which was not sung in other countries in the Infinity tour thus far. He sounded really great, we should wait for this guy to have a concert on his own. We need a name for his fans too: Troyans from Troymania! (Ok I’m a fan really.)

A sad incident occurred after the concert though, when people were leaving Charice’s concert, the earthquake alarm went on and we heard it was a big one. We pray for the safety of Japan and all its people. Thank you Japanese Chasters, thank you Japanese audience!

Charice Rocked Araneta Coliseum

Charice Rocked Araneta Coliseum

“Manila, Manila. I keep coming back to Manila. Simply no place like Manila. Manila I’m coming home!”

Yes. That is a famous Philippine song and it’s very appropriate for Charice as she came back to her home country to bring joy to our hearts and ears as well! So people thought they’d go to a concert but end up coming home from a wild party!

As soon as Charice set foot at Ninoy Aquino International airport, there were only two new hot topics: her new short, dyed hair and her fresh tattoo! Reading the comments on Twitter, it was so unbelievable how they attacked her “literally”! It maybe true that Charice can’t please everyone but do they have to be so mean?

Charice sporting a very cool tattoo on her left arm bought the house down! Everyone was screaming happily. (Hopefully, Chasters throats are okay) The audience were also singing and dancing! (Even with left feet!!! LOL!)

Charice should have been nervous before going on stage at the Araneta Coliseum because of the pressure the press and the numerous Twitter (yes she was trending again) comments addressing her new look! She’s finding her style, experimenting on her own way, let her be. She’s still in the learning and developing phase of her life. Being true to herself is what makes a person happy and human. And we know that Charice indeed is very talented and whether some of her fans and detractors will like her style or not, her confidence alone is very amazing.

Let’s check a few highlights of the Araneta dome party

There was a very cute moment when Charice’s sang Lighthouse with her aunt.

She showed her amazing versatile voice, her dancing skills, she was comfortable moving on stage. That’s the new (and old) Charice!

In Love So Deep

Faithfully

Run The World

Non-Chasters who attended the concert were converted, (they just couldn’t deny her talent), something they’ve not seen yet on local artists. Chasters were even more surprised and amazed. This is not a DFF concert, it’s her solo concert: her own style, her own renditions, her interactions with the audience, everything was well-planned on stage.

There was an added bonus of course in the form of Charice’s Little Big Star pals namely Makisig, Ralph, Kyle, Gian and Sam Concepcion in which they sang “Moves Like Jagger”.

The most anticipated duet with Iyaz whom they renamed as “Ayas” now?

They witnessed a world-class talent! Sorry for those who missed this chance, better luck next time. It is indeed a different feeling experiencing her perform live, she’s one of a kind that will give you both goosebumps with that unique voice!

There’s no denying it, it was a phenomenal show from a phenomenal artist named Charice!

So what else has made this tour special? Her rockin’ band! Each one of them is so talented (not to mention good looking!) that the girls were screaming and cheering for them as well.

The Band with Heartbreak Survivor

A toast for Troy – kampaii! My goodness, every Chaster should watch this cool guy in action – he’s unbelievably talented!

Charice and KC Concepcion who would both judge the Philippine version of X-Factor.

Finale -Charice’s signature song from Whitney Houston, “I Will Always Love You, Pilipinas kong mahal, mga kababayan ko.”

For those who couldn’t make it, well you’ve missed witnessing the best live voice of the most talented girl in the world. Overall it was fun, she was a rocker, a balladeer, a dancer, hip hopper, showing her own style like no other musician out there can do right now. Charice is so versatile, incomparable in any sort of song genre! So her image change is almost minor but very fitting on this tour.

To our angel Charice you will always be tattooed in our hearts!

Special thanks to Manette153 for the great videos and Princess Serena.
