Charice in Japan!

Charice in Japan!

After weeks of lying low and having a well-deserved rest, Charice has been spotted in Japan!  Charice arrived in Tokyo last February 4th and is in talks with her label Warner Japan for a project that is being kept under wraps for now.  In the meantime, Warner Japan has been posting pictures on its Twitter account @wmj_intl.  We don’t know how long Charice will be in Japan so follow Warner Japan for possibly more pictures!

This was posted last February 5th, with a short description saying “Hello everyone in Japan!  I’m back after having been gone for a while.”  It’s a little dark, but we’re not complaining.  It shows Charice at the Warner Japan office wearing a hat which she usually does when she is in Japan.

Another picture was posted the next day, February 6th, showing Charice with a bamboo stick!  What’s in it Cha?  They usually put steamed rice in bamboo but the caption says “Enjoying dinner at a Japanese restaurant after a staff meeting…Also drank sake (Japanese wine) since I’m already 20 years old.” (Note: The legal age in Japan is 20.)  Sake in bamboo sounds good!

This last picture was also posted but has been erased.  Luckily we have super fast “nin-chas”  who managed to save the picture.

So what do you think she is up to?  Will it be another album?  A concert?  Whatever it is, we can’t wait!

“Are you ready to rumble?” Absolutely! Especially Chasters with their matching pitchforks and torches all armed and ready to defend Charice. Well that is a bit of an exaggeration but still “To arms!”

Anyway, by now most people must have heard or read in the news lately about the controversy involving three DJs of the radio station Magic 89.9 and Charice. Guess who the DJs are? Read on! Continue Reading

The Mathematics of Chaddiction

The Mathematics of Chaddiction

No! This ain’t about differential and integral calculus that make many engineering and science students curse Newton and Leibniz in inventing them. It’s the mathematics of chaddiction and all that jazz!

It’s about obtaining the most efficient click-per-second in an online voting for Charice; the question whether hitting F5 buys more time than hitting other category and back; the calculation of time differences among all chasters to come up with the best timing to successfully trend anything about Charice on Twitter; the estimation of N/S, the ratio of number of browsers opened versus the speed of your internet connection to amplify YouTube’s view counter of Charice’s MTVs and videos and the likes.

Charice Nominated in the 2012 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards

Charice Nominated in the 2012 Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards

UPDATE: Voting LINK click here NICK-ASIA

“Ready to vote for your favourite stars of the year? The only rule is…there are no rules. This is the Kids’ Choice Awards, after all! Keep voting to make sure your very, very favourite people get to take home orange blimps. Then tune-in to the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards to find out who all the big winners are!” – Kids´ Choice Awards 2012

A new special category has been added to the Nickelodeon’s Kids’ Choice Awards for the year 2012. And guess who’s one of the nominees for that unique category? Charice, of course!

The other “Favorite Asian Act” nominees are South Korea’s the Wonder Girls, Malaysia’s Yuna, and Indonesia’s Agnes Monica. Charice represents the Philippines for this award. The pop group Wonder Girls have actually just appeared on a Nickelodeon tv movie titled, “The Wonder Girls” which aired last February 2, 2012. Yuna rose to fame in Malaysia for her folk-pop music, while Agnes Monica is a child-star turned multi-awarded singer in Indonesia.

The “Favorite Asian Act” is an Asia-specific award as it only appears on the Kids’ Choice Awards’ Asia website and not on the USA-based one. If this is the case, voting for this specific award might only be open to residents in Asia.

3674412171 Charice Nominated in the 2012 Nickelodeons Kids Choice AwardsChasters might right away want Charice to be in the running for the “Favorite Female Singer” award with Lady Gaga, Selena Gomez, Katy Perry, and Taylor Swift.

But the “Favorite Asian Act” brings her one step nearer to that. So let’s wait for next year’s list of nominees – Charce will have a better shot after her second album “Infinity” is released in the U.S.

Plus, the 2012 Teens’ Choice Awards is yet to come, and remember, she actually presented an award to Demi Lovato there last year.

Voting for the Kids’ Choice Awards starts February 24, 2012, so get ready to start campaigning hard! Check back here again at Charicemania.com for details on how to cast your votes.

The live awards show will be aired on March 31, 2012 and will be hosted by Will Smith.

Charice’s “Bodyguard Medley” Goes Viral

Charice’s “Bodyguard Medley” Goes Viral

On February 12th, a Chaster named “Amsterdam” re-uploaded a video on Youtube where Charice was singing the so-called Bodyguard Medley (I Have Nothing and I Will Always Love You) accompanied by Mr. David Foster on the piano.

Amsterdam’s video description:

No copyright infringement. This video belong to the right owner. Please visit the original uploader (CHAMU Chaster’s from Canada). Take note that Charice is crying because this is the last tour concert with her friends. This is only a fan made for Whitney Houston and Charice. Youtube link Whitney Houston [ RIP ] from 17 yo – Charice in tears , 2009 concert

Original Video from Chariceweekly:

Actually nothing unusual, Chasters have been uploading, re-uploading, editing videos of Charice, we’ve seen them all. But of course this was a very touching performance that made a big impact even to a long-time fan like me: Schoen’s Blog. Because I don’t think it’s easy to sing while trying to hold back her tears at the same time. So emotions just poured out of this very tiny body.

As Amsterdam was paying tribute to Whitney using this video on Youtube, one site caught it and featured it as “Female Cover Of The Week: 17-Year-Old “Charice Pempengco” From The Philippines Does Whitney Houston Tribute & She Did That!” Site link: World Star Hip Hop.

That was February 13th, so far so good, nothing special….yet…. until this:

Yes!! Mr. Perez Hilton featured that same video on his site on Feb. 14th and twitted it. And we know he has millions of followers right? The video went viral as “Charice’s Whitney Houston Tribute”.

Different online sites followed, here`s our complilation starting with Hollywood Life’s Charice Performs Epic Tribute To Whitney Houston In Concert and they even added an Update:

(UPDATE: It turns out this video is being inaccurately sent around the internet as a new tribute video, when it was actually filmed back in 2009. But it means so much more now, so I’ll let it slide.)

Kfox95.com featured an additional video where Charice performed “I Will Always Love You” in a Japanese show:

Then Popcrush.com followed: Charice Sings Whitney Houston ‘Bodyguard’ Medley with David Foster

Jackfroot.com: The Most Talented Girl in the World Pays Tribute to Whitney

Then from AMP Radio.com: Charice Whitney Houston Tribute is Absolutely Stunning.

The video even made it to the Top 5 Whitney Houston Tributes alongside with the legendary Aretha Franklin on International Business Times Whitney Houston Death Tribute.

And of course Glee’s Wetpaint.com site can’t miss Charice too: Charice’s Stunning Tribute to Whitney Houston: Former Glee Guest Star’s Tearful Performance.

Since Chasters love to vote – there’s even a poll going on: Who Sang it Better? So Chasters if you want to vote, visit the site.

Chasters have then started twitting and re-twitting the video and the rest is history. She was 17 years old that time way back in 2009. Judging by the positive reactions and comments to the video, it is very clear than people have been touched or amazed or even just enjoyed watching and listening to her.

Charice could really give justice to a Whitney Houston song. Of course, Chasters need not be convinced how talented she was when she was younger and still is at this stage where she learned how to use and control her voice to her advantage. Contrary to other negative twits about Charice using Whitney’s death to push her career now, just letting them know, inform yourself first. It’s not her fault at all if news are being written about her on this.

Charice Graces the Cover of Preview Magazine’s Jan-Feb 2012 Issue

Charice Graces the Cover of Preview Magazine’s Jan-Feb 2012 Issue

Despite a somber end to a great year because of a family tragedy, Charice bounces back right away in 2012 – and what better way to start the new year than with a bright, colorful and edgy cover on the Philippine’s top fashion magazine.

1 13244646731221111 Charice Graces the Cover of Preview Magazines Jan Feb 2012 IssuePreview describes itself as the Philippine’s style bible, and Charice is a great choice for the cover and a spread that’s all about modern minimalism.

Charice’s personal style has never been over the top, but still attention-grabbing in an edgy, boyish way (see photo on the left).

But it’s been a shock to some people on how Charice looked on the cover, so they called-out the magazine for using too much Photoshop.

Nevertheless, it was proven that only the usual post-processing were done on Charice’s photo (e.g. removing a pimple on her cheek).

And that the transformation was done through dramatic make-up and the addition of faux bangs.

Plus, it was the Philippine’s top talents who were the ones in charge of Charice’s photoshoot: acclaimed photographer Mark Nicdao, celebrity stylist Liz Uy, veteran make-up artist Juan Sarte, expert hairstylist Buern Rodriguez and top creative director Vince Uy.

One glance on the cover below and it’s so obvious that that’s the one and only Charice, right?

Preview has also released photos from the shoot complete with captions on what’s happening in the photos. Below are some of the ones featured on their website (plus some scanned pages straight off the magazine):

Charice in Japan on March 14-17: Invading Tokyo, Kobe and Nagoya

Update: Waiting for the videos, Tokyo, Kobe, Nagoya!

During the David Foster and Friends Asia Tour in Tokyo last October, pre-selling of tickets for Charice’s 2012 solo Tokyo concert started. And a lot of people lined up to get their hands on the limited early tickets being sold at the concert venue.

Charicemania speculated earlier whether this Tokyo concert was actually part of a multi-country tour in 2012 – and that appears true now, as 2 more cities in Japan has been added to Charice’s schedule, plus, Singapore and Hong Kong have also been recently confirmed as stops for her Infinity Tour in Asia.

After just a few days from her Singapore concert on March 5, 2012, Charice will fly to Tokyo for her performance on March 14, 2012. Next is Kobe on March 16 , and then Nagoya on March 17, 2012.

A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears

A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears

INFINITE POSSIBILITIES! These are the two words that come to mind when I think of Charice’s Message in her Infinity Album. This girl is living proof that dreams do come true no matter how impossible it seem to be. Last October 25,2011, another girl, a chaster named Kimmie had her dream come true as she had her surprise duet in front of the 12,000 audience in Araneta Coliseum, Manila.


Video uploaded by Bluemax

This is her story:

ONE MONTH before the concert, I posted something in my  Facebook, Twitter, and Plurk account. ‘Dear Lord, I hope someone soponsors my ticket for the DFF Tour with Charice on Oct. 25, 2011, I do hope this wish comes true”. I was just kidding, then suddenly, “Sisa”, a gorgeous chaster in and out whom I consider as my elder sis said she will take care of it. Woah, I never expected that she would sponsor me. She was really nice to me and I was so thankful about it. Two days after, the money to be used to buy the ticket was sent to our house. A week and a half later, I lost the ticket due to my carelessness. I remember putting it under the bed but when I tried looking for it, I really can’t find it. My guess is that our maid might have thrown out the ticket when she cleaned my room. Then one day before the concert, Ate Tintol sent me a private message on Facebook. I was at school that time, that was around 7pm. She told me to send her a text message if I don’t have a ticket yet. She still has extra ticket and she said she will give me one. OMC, i was so happy to know that because I really thought I won’t be able to watch the concert anymore.

THE MAIN EVENT.

I arrived late at the Chaster Concert gathering where I was supposed to sing due to so much traffic. I first look for Ate Tintol to ask for my ticket. She asked me to choose between Upperbox A or B. She said that more chasters will be seated in Upperbox B than A, but UpperboxA is nearer the stage. So, I chose the ticket for Upperbox A.

The concert started at around 8pm. I felt sad because I was alone in my seat, away from the group of chasters I’ve met earlier. I just kept on screaming and singing along with the performers as if nothing matters.

A DREAM COME TRUE.

A lot of people has been asking me if what had happened at the concert was scripted. I told them that everything was unexpected! When the concert started, I was screaming non-stop since the other chasters are far from me and I dont have anyone to talk to. I was so excited because I really want to see charice.

At the mid-part of the show, there was one point when David Foster ask the audience who wanted to sing in the stage. He first picked out audiences at the VIP section. Later on, he then asked if anyone staying a little bit farther the stage also wants to sing. I started screaming my lungs out and raising my hand then, the people around began pointing at me. I was shocked when the spotlight was suddenly focused to us. David F. said i need to be at the stage in 20 seconds, Geeeez, that’s close to impossible since the section where I was seated was kinda far from the stage. The marshalls assisted me to the backstage. I thought I was gonna sing immediately. I got a little worried when I found out that I’m not going to sing yet. I thought they already forgot about me. While waiting at the backstage, the staff and the other performers are almost at my reach. I shook hands with them and kept on smiling to all.

Then the moment I have long been waiting for came, I heard Charice singing on the stage. She was singing POWER OF LOVE, OMC. I couldn’t stop myself from crying that time. I felt a little shy because the people around were already looking at me. The moment charice came down the stage, she hugged me and signed the souvenir i brought from the Pre-Concert Chasters Gathering.

The concert continued and when it was nearing it’s end, the staff told me that they will try their best to still be able to put me on the show and let me sing. Charice approached me and asked me if I’m just ok. She was trying to comfort me coz she might have felt that I was feeling a little down. She said sorry because David might have forgotten me coz he was really tired that time. I told her it’s ok, there’s no need to say sorry coz seeing her is really more than enough to complete my night. But deep inside, I did feel a little sad coz I really thought that Sir David Foster already forgot me. Then, one of the musicians approached me and asked me what song do I know and if I have ever hold a mic. They never thought I was really singing. I told them I know the song “I will Survive”, they said they weren’t ready for that. They asked if I know “My heart will go on”, I told them I don’t know the complete piece. How about Because you loved me? I said YES! I waited a little more, then when I heard that the performers were already singing Earth Song, I knew that the concert was about to end, I thought again that I might not be able to perform anymore.  Then I suddenly remembered that I left my bag at my seat in Upperbox A. Good thing the staffs are really kind enough to take care of it. They were able to get it back from my seat.

I heard Araneta Colisum roaring when David Foster played his major hits and the audience were singing along.  Then after that, David called me up the stage. OMC to the highest level, I was getting so nervous. Then I saw Charice looking at me as if she was saying good luck. I was still so nervous but I know I need to overcome this feeling so I started singing. I shouted CHASTERS in the middle of the song coz i feel that I represent every Chaster there. Suddenly, the most unexpected happened, Charice came up the stage. That is something I really never expected coz the last time I saw her, she was just at the backstage looking at me and giving me the courage to go on just by looking at me. I had the most unforgettable duet of my life. I just noticed myself crying while singing with her, THANK GOD we were still able to finish the song. Charice was exceptionally nice as well as David. They continued cheering me even when I’m going down the stage.

cha and kim 2 A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears

I received a BIG hug from Charice. After that, Ate Tintol sent me a text message, she said, “I guess losing your ticket was a blessing in disguise. You were awesome at the stage. The Chasters are proud of you! “. icon smile A Magical Night with Charice: No Words, Just Tears ~end~

Note: For everyone’s information, the sponsored ticket (which was donated by a Chaster Clause the last minute to another chaster) was an Upperbox B ticket. However, a friend of mine who was supposed to be on the Upperbox A seat had an emergency and was not able to go to the concert the last minute so I gave Kimmie a choice. Upperbox A or B? You guys know the rest of the story. As Chaster ImKarl puts it in his blog about the event:

“Life is too ironic to fully understand. It takes sadness to know what happiness is. Thinking that kimmie was upset and sad days before the concert because of her lost ticket but she was able to stand and sing in the middle of a huge crowd singing a heart-warming song with her ultimate idol for life. A magical night. To describe it NO WORDS, JUST TEARS”
