Hitmaker David Foster and Dance Mogul Jim Beanz Team Up for Charice


Hit Man David Foster said that at age sixty, he only has a “very small and finite number” of things that he can still do and he wants to do them right – and one of these things is paving the way for his latest protégé, Charice, who has just collaborated with yet another hit maker, dance song genius Jim Beanz.

Foster is credited for launching the careers of music legends like Celine Dion, Whitney Houston, and also other famous names such as Josh Groban, Michael Buble.

A Channel News Asia Report stated, “Foster’s latest talent discovery, 18-year-old Filipino singing sensation Charice… is his current favourite project and he has been steadily grooming her to be the next superstar.”

“Now at 60, I only have a very finite number of CDs I can produce, artistes I can find, careers I can help, it’s a very small and finite number and I want to do it right up till the end,” Foster said.

Asked if he was surprised that his newest discovery is Asian, Foster said that he has said it for so many years that the next big talent will come from Asia. Foster said that Asians make up a third of the global population, which makes perfect sense.

Foster added, “Talent doesn’t know race, creed, colour, geography. Talent just is. And you just got to know that there’s a ton of talented people in every nook and cranny of the plane.”

Foster’s “Talent”

Channel News Asia asked Foster about how he got this knack for discovering international talents. Foster replied, saying he doesn’t have that ability at all.

“I do not have the talent to know if they have what it takes to an A-list star. Who could

However, Foster said he’s sure that each person has a hidden talent that should be discovered and nurtured.

Jim Beanz Intervenes

And Foster seems to really know how to nurture talent.

Charice, also known as GLEE’s Sunshine Corazon, recently recorded a new dance track under the wings of the legendary singer/songwriter/record producer Jim Beanz.jim beanz Hitmaker David Foster and Dance Mogul Jim Beanz Team Up for Charice

James David Washington, known in the international music industry as Jim Beanz, has collaborated with a flurry of big names in the business, creating hit after hit after hit.

Some of the artists the Beanz has worked with include Britney Spears, Craig David, Duran Duran, Jennifer Hudson, Shakira, Nelly Furtado, and P. Diddy.

It is expected that this song will be a major departure from Charice’s previous hit single “Pyramid”, as Jim Beanz’ musical style is best characterized as outright upbeat, well within the dance genre. With a potential monster hit, Charice would be able to reach out to wider demographic.

Just recently,it was reported that singer/songwriter Ne-Yo also expressed interest in collaborating with the young star.

Will Charice’s next dance single be as big as Craig David’s “Insomnia” or Britney’s “Womanizer”?

Let’s wait and see.

However, as far as Beanz’ Track Record goes, we will all be in for one heck of a ride!

Where is she?

Charice, J-14′s Icon of Tomorrow, will be busy in the holiday season.

She will be performing in the following holiday events:

The Gift That Is Charice


On the day I joined Charicemania, I posted my first blog. I praised all the Chasters for promoting Charice. Everyone here wants to take part in helping Charice reach the top. It’s now 2011 and we’ve witnessed how Charice is now being admired and even adored by more and more people from all walks of life, from different countries.

I believe wherever Charice is so are the Chasters. I personally think she is now in another phase of her career so should the Chasters be on another phase of support. We should not only continue what we have been doing for her but also consciously promote her from a different perspective.

Before I talk about the different perspective, let’s take a look at what has transpired so far.

It’s only the second month of the year and so much has happened. Charice rendered songs for at least 70K (conservative estimate) people at MOA, gave free concert at the jam-packed Enchanted Kingdom, wowed TV critics at the Orpheum Theater, performed at the posh Mar-a-Lago Club, entertained Red Dress Awardees and guests, and belted out big notes at the FAAN event. And very recently, we were glued to the TV set or our computer screens to witness her longer than usual performances, the Valentine’s Special at GMA7. All of these excited us. We were thrilled when we learned about the positive feed-backs about her performances. We expressed our appreciation to those who believed in and cared for her at every chance we got.

On the other hand, we were angered when we read about false allegations, negative comments and unspeakable write-up about her. Anger became hatred when the truth was turned upside down. Boycott was called for when obscenities were sanitized. But when Charice spoke of forgiveness and acceptance of apologies, we calmed down. When Charice spoke of what a real Chaster is, we tried to be that.

Where are all these extreme reactions coming from?

I’ve heard and read similar comments of many Chasters regarding their experiences with Charice. A few examples are staying up late watching her videos, forgetting about their cooking because of her music but with no regrets at all, smiling or crying while watching her, saving up for concert tickets, traveling many miles to see her, being fanatic for the first time, doing Ninja acts to capture her on videos, and having goosebumps all over. It seems that there is some kind of magic spell that happens in the presence of Charice, be it in the physical or virtual realm. You may have your own special ways of answering how and why these happen. As for me, I don’t have a ready explanation.

Although I have used superlatives to describe her performances and my own experiences, I always feel the words do not match the real thing. I have recently commented on a video and on a posted article that there isn’t a word that can justify whatever it is that is Charice. When I first wrote my thoughts about her way back in October last year, I got stuck in a sentence because I could not find the appropriate adjective to suit the kind of moment I had whenever I watched her on YouTube. I was satisfied only after letting my pen spell out “charice-tic” to describe it. I have modified its spelling though — CHARICETIC!!! — with the capitalization and the three exclamation points as part of the spelling.

Let me go back to the different perspective I mentioned earlier. Please allow me to repeat the third paragraph above.

I believe wherever Charice is so are the Chasters. I personally think she is now on another phase of her career so should the Chasters be on another phase of support. We should not only continue what we have been doing for her but also consciously promote her from a different perspective.

We all have the good feeling whenever we read or hear the name CHARICE. We all rejoice when we learn a radio station plays her songs. We all appreciate somebody else’s appreciation of her. We all jump at the sight of her. We all laugh at her funny antics. We all are amazed at her signature gestures. We all smile when we see her sweet smile. We all want to console her when we see tears in her eyes, maybe because by doing so, we are also consoled. And many more similar to these happen. Don’t we want all our loved ones to experience the same? We can even extend the experience to strangers as well.

Like most, if not all, Chasters, I believe Charice is more than her voice. She’s more than the songs she sings. As described by the man from the Italian show, Charice is God’s Gift to us. Let’s help others experience that Gift, too. We Chasters have been enjoying the Gift. Being the Month of Love, now is the best time to share it. Let’s invite people to watch her Valentine’s Special at GMA7 on YouTube. I believe this is one event that we have experienced Charice to the max. In this special, a first-timer will

know her early struggles, her inspiring relationship with her mother, her powerful voice and her ability in performing on stage, and her other entertaining talents like the Chipmunks impression. After that, let’s tell them about her solo concert in Japan so they have something to look forward to even if only through the videos. Let’s share how they can experience Charice in different websites. Let’s do this not just because we love our Princess but also because we want others to have the good feelings, I for one, never experienced before knowing Charice. Let’s help them have their own CHARICETIC!!! moments.

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 (by purdy). 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 on Vacation


We’ve come across some new pictures on the web showing Charice with Mom, brother Carl and friends lately. Looks like Charice is enjoying her vacation and spending valuable time with her family.

We are indeed glad to see the pictures with her Mom as we know that keeping ties with one’s family is very important especially in the Filipino/asian culture.

baler Charice on Vacation
We know that Chasters are quite disappointed that there are no news about her career right now or what’s going on, let’s just say, enjoy your time and your vacation in the Philippines Charice and when you are ready, we’ll be there to report about it.

Here’s another one that makes us really happy:

Who Are We to Judge Charice?


We would like to share the comments from some of the most loyal supporters of Charice for the past years. These Chasters we admire most because of their commitment in promoting Charice. After all the turbulences and negative comments in social networking sites these past days, including the comment section here in Charicemania, we hope to open a platform for ideas and free discussions in a civilized manner. We encourage Chasters to participate…so “fire away”.

Note: Inapproriate, rude comments will be edited and/or removed.

From Sideburnersol:
Thanks for sharing your views. I appreciate that you requested the replies to be free of name calling, character assassination and personal attacks. Please forgive me if my attempts to provide alternative views to your own may come across as overly pedantic. Despite my best efforts I have not mastered the art of writing succinctly. Also, please consider that although I have had varying degrees of personal contact with most all of the individuals I defend, I am still very much like what I believe you to be, on the outside looking in, so, I am not claiming to have absolute truth.

Concerning the first issue you brought up, “trashing family issues in the social media”, I believe we are, for the most part, in agreement. As a parent of a grown daughter, I particularly liked your comment that a parent’s role is to “encourage and nurture, but not control”. However, I disagree with your statement that “Charice needs to learn to listen to her mom”. I think that Charice knows very well how to listen to her mom. IMHO, Charice, having heard her mom, wisely chooses not to respond publicly and I trust that she is looking for the appropriate time/environment to respond privately. My prayer is that someone with strength of character, and expertise in relationship building, will intervene privately to provide counseling for all family members. It is my personal experience that when everyone agrees that they could use some help to make things right, individuals can more easily understand their roles in the conflict, accept responsibility for their actions and work toward a healthy family relationship.

Regarding your observations about the individual that Charice has chosen to be her Music Director, and whom she has repeatedly referred to as, “her brother”, Troy; I hope you will be open to reconsidering your conclusions. Although Troy sometimes uses “colorful” language, from what I have observed, it is mostly either used in jest, or, to extemporaneously add emphasis to a modern urban slogan, or, he is using it to mischievously describe an event/object. I follow Troy’s tweets regularly and my view is that he is not a hateful tweeter/person. He does not make a habit of using profanity to attack individuals. I view his language as neither “vulgar” nor “despicable”. You previously mentioned agreeing with the views of PJ. You may know that PJ previously received a phone call from Charice and his vlogs were followed by many Chasters. I’m not sure which video you are referring to, but I hope it’s not the one about Troy & Cheesa, where PJ’s suggestions were based on information he later admitted was wrong. I only bring this up because I didn’t hear you criticizing PJ for his prolific use of profanity in the majority of his videos. Where does the critiquing of those Charice may become close to end? Nobody is perfect. When will the looking for the positives in those she loves and respects become our focus? Can Chasters refrain from condemning those that Charice chooses to be in her inner circle when they exhibit some trait that we may not fully endorse? Can we choose to give them the benefit of a doubt if their actions can be viewed as questionable so that perhaps we can appreciate the heart of the person and the theme within their messages? I hope so.

Please consider some mitigating circumstances to the actions/attitudes you attribute to the individual that Charice chooses to spend lots of her free time with when she is in Los Angeles; Troy. If you are a devoted follower of Troy’s twitter, then you know that Troy’s twitter timeline is constantly bombarded with requests from Chasters for pictures of Charice and updates on her every move. As you admit, Troy is very gifted musically. He has many fans, most of which are probably also Chasters; so, it seems fine to me that Troy posts pictures of himself along with Charice. It also seems fine to me that he gives updates on his own work as well as his work with Charice. I’m not exactly sure what you meant by “BS baggard”? I’m guessing you meant something like braggadocios? Troy has a healthy ego and I know he does comment about being proud of his work. However, I don’t think that he overly puffs himself up, or that he is arrogant. On the contrary, I think Troy is rather modest concerning his critically important role in directing talented musicians, arranging music and mapping the flow of songs for Charice’s and other artist’s performances. As you may know, Charice dropped her public twitter accounts because of repeated unkind comments about her. If Chasters choose to treat Troy as they have Charice, I imagine that Chasters will also lose the privilege of viewing Troy’s pictures with Charice.

Have you considered how stress relieving it must be for Charice to have someone working for her that has a wonderfully supportive family? Have you counted the plethora of Troy’s tweets of adoration addressed to his mom and dad, sister, aunts, uncles, cousins and extended family? Have you considered the state of someone’s heart that consistently tweets messages/pictures that unquestionably shows how much their family means to them? Will you consider how openly both Troy & Cheesa commend their parents for their examples of unconditional love and family unity? If you have followed Troy & Cheesa, both on fb & Twitter, then you might see more evidence of what wonderful people they are and what a blessed family life they share. Charice has said that she feels like she is a part of their family. I hope you and other Chasters will see how that type of experience is a blessing for Charice.

I just checked the twitter account of the source for the obscured picture of Charice’s letter and as far as I know, Charice still hasn’t published the content of the letter. Whatever she may write, I hope that Chasters will look for the positives and do as you previously stated, “I hope that some sense and something good will come out from your minds and hearts out of this post”.

Best regards to my Chaster family.

Lantao seldom be here. Point is I’m a freaking busy guy with tons and tons of work around the clock. Yet, I’m not dumb and I’m not stupid. I do read and I do listen and I did my researches as well. Well, if I don’t say a word, I just pretend I dunno and avoid throwing stones onto the water surface to cause damaging ripples.

When Celebrity needs to write a public letter, there must be something of ultimate importance to announce. Put it this way: no news from a public figure like our international singing sensation Charice is bad news. On the contrary, ANY News for a celebrity is good news because it helps to draw attention. Good news, bad news, drama, controversies, rumors, tweet fights, FB leaks, tomboy Fotos, tattoo, long-and-short of hair, ayiee, or even news on fans … etc, etc, etc. All of these are news for a celebrity to keep their presence among us, a kind of keeping us in the loop for “Something Big to Happen” later.

Added to this picture might be the media later, gossiping on ABC & XYZ. Well, lantao always prepare for the worst news – news that might be beyond the scope we can accept. But so what! All I enjoy is our dear princess’s music and I care less for her personal life even though I also pray for her and wish her the best on everything.

A singer is also a human and any human will go through the same stages we all have been gone through before: family issues, preference in love and personal behavior, so on and so forth. Please understand that nobody is perfect on the planet earth and we SHOULD NOT demand a teenager to be perfect by all means?! Come on, please be fair to our dear little princess!

Right or wrong is subjective. To allow someone to grow stronger, you need to allow that person walk through the eye of a hurricane. From long to short, from girlish to tomboy, from obedient to rebellious as some might say, or from pure to being tattooed, and the mysterious ayie business … let’s cool our heads down and allow some room for this young lady to walk her path. Yeah, it might seemingly be wrong, but that’s how we learn and grow stronger. Or it is nothing more than a marketing strategy for her next move.

All news are good news for a celebrity as their handler can tweak all good news and bad news to their direction and to their benefit to re- brand their star. Let’s all stay tune and be united. No matter what happen, we all remain stay put! Hey, when did we forgot the slogan of “Together at da Top, Baby”!

From Mooffin:
Regarding something big. What if Cha is contractually bound not to say anything about it until a certain time? Whether whatever it is is already done or not, what if she has no control over when to say something or what to say about it? Can you imagine how frustrating that must be? You’re bursting to say something about your career but you can’t? And people saying nothing’s happening and you can’t defend yourself? What if all these changes in image point to a new direction music-wise? She’s said before she wants to be like Avril. What if all these image changes are part of packaging her new direction? If she said something big is going to happen, then something big really will. We just have to wait and see.
I can understand the frustration of chasters, but we have to keep in mind we were so spoiled before when one thing after another was happening to her, when her schedule was so punishing. No human can sustain that kind of activity. In every artist’s career there are ebbs and flows.

Some people say her career is over. I will only believe it when Cha herself says that she is retiring. It may not be the career of Beyonce or Madonna but it’s still a career. As long as she is singing, whatever genre it is, or whatever image she has, it’s still a career.

We all have our preferences and wishes for Cha, myself included, but i’ve realized it’s her life to live and i am just a fan. If i don’t like the direction she is going into, i can stop being a fan, but i will not disparage Cha nor others who choose to remain fans and I will always be grateful to Cha for years of happiness watching her, and the friends I’ve made because of her.

People think they know what is best for Cha. I am guilty of this too, in the past, I just didn’t say it. But when people realize that they really don’t know what is best for another person, especially without knowing the facts, without witnessing the behind the scenes, then there will be peace. There comes a point when you just have to let it go, it’s her life to live. We get to live our lives, why can’s she live hers?

Here’s the previous comment posted by Bing:
Allow me to re-post a previous view and say something about the mom & brother’s trashing family issues in the social media:

Wether you are a celebrity, a common person or nobody, you never go to social media to castigate your children/siblings,to extend your desire to control your child by humiliating in public with the unintended intention to isolate and keep her totally under your wraps. In the western world, this is domestic violence.

No parent has right to subject their children to any forms of abuse but they have they responsibility to teach what is right from wrong and provide guidance when needed & required and/or desired to encourage and nurture but not control. No children desired to be brought out in this world but certainly can be grateful being born.

Almost everyone is saying in various ways that Charice needs to learn or listen to her mom which I agree but, None of us has mentioned that the mum also has to learn and listen to her. Listening or learning does not mean following the same DNA of the footprints of the parent/s. Both of them were born in different generations and all the differences associated with it in the environment they grow or outgrow with.

From my previous post, please comment, I wish to see where my nonsense fall and weather somethings do matter:

I haven’t seen Cha’s letter to Chasters suggesting that she was taking a break but I hope that when she does return to perform that she will have the professional management that are to standrard of her calibre and her global audience.

Lately I have just been biting my tongue regarding the inappropriate behaviour and inappropriate language of her musical director – Troy. His language in Twitter has realy been vulgar & despicable – about up to 2/3 months ago posts.

Also, I didn’t like the idea Troy bragging about his influence over Charice… It could be well true but he didn’t have to say it. Some of it were in defence for his sister Cheesa & also Charice. Even in a number of pictures he posted with Charice – the latest one was her personal gig I think Malaysia, he is taking centre stage.

I can understand that for Chasters of which he is one but, he is an employee first. Have you ever heard of people working for any artist in the background role taking centre stage with the artist & all this BS bagging of themselves other than in the Phils.

My personal impression & friend is that he trying to grab the publicity in close association with Charice with the indirect/implied intention of promoting his sister’s career and himself.

What matters to many is Charice and she should not overstep in the limelight to self promote his interest…and at times acts as press officer for Cha. It’s like an info tease with vagueness.

Maybe this sort of behaviours sit well with Phil audience but not the global followers of Charice.

I am in the belief that Cha’s management would be best handled by people of international taste and appetite with reputation and standard sellable to her global market. At the moment, Troy comes across as her “management”???????

Don’t get me wrong, Troy is very good with the musical instruments/electronics I guess and that’s about it as far as cha’s career is concerned – this is the reflection of my Australian group following Charice.. And Troy’s actions/behaviour should reflect the standard of Cha of which he is working for – not this vulgar language and despicable outburst.

Yes he is a person too but, he is an employee first working for Charice. While he is with her, he should just tone down his language and stop the grab for the limelight, becomes annoying.

Some of you may not like of what I have to say here now but, I speak the thoughts of the many I know in our Sydney group. I must say that our interest here is simply the unbelievable talent of Charice and almost all of us in the group did not follow any particular artists until we came to know Charice.

May I also say to those haters of Charice, make sense with what you disagree with her, no name calling and not character assassination or personal attack. Focus on the talents because that is where she is for us after all and that’s how she came to us. Make your personal suggestions/views out but don’t get this notion that she will exactly do what you and I want..

She will always fall short in pleasing anyone’s expectations but she can surely transform some of those expectations in her own way and that we should credit her for doing so as well as be gratified ourselves that she somehow made those efforts to reach out to us.. If still you are not happy then abandone her and find someone else who you fell most happiest to support. Don’t make it hardest for you to be happy….go, where joys lead you!

I hope that some sense and something good will come out from your minds and hearts out of this this post. Thank you all and good afternoon from Sydney.

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.

@OfficialCharice


This post is for all of levitra heartburn those who are quick to judge @OfficialCharice Everybody in the entertainment industry knows that being in the spotlight at a young age can take away precious moments of one’s childhood. Child stars are pretty much forced to grow up faster because of all the extra work, pressure, ethics and environment. Then there is also the part of them having to maintain an image that is marketable in the eyes of their label / management. Imagine having to juggle between school, practice, and work while also trying to squeeze in time for family and friends. Yes, they trade those moments for fortune and fame, but deep down inside I truly believe that there are always times when a kid just wants to be a kid. Other big name stars have experienced the same dilemma, and many of them eventually break down or decide to leave the entertainment industry to pursue a more personal and private kind of lifestyle. Charice has been making appearances since she was just a few years old until now. She has basically worked more hours and years then most people her age. Her style and voice has changed consistently over the years, which is a natural part of the aging process. Everybody goes through this in life. Trying to find a style that fits them, only to find out that they dislike it and try something new again and again. Maybe Charice really likes this new style and maybe she’s thinking of growing her hair back out. Whatever the case, I think she owes it to herself online viagra to make her own decisions for a change. (As long as those decisions don’t put her in any immediate danger or cause permanent injury). Only Charice herself knows exactly what she wants in life and in which direction she wants her career to go. Our only prerogative is to decide whether or not we want to go along for the ride and support her. Everybody seems to have a different image of Charice that they prefer. Family, fans, her label, and maybe even Hollywood in general. Who knows? But I can only imagine the feeling of having everybody around you trying to dictate your life, especially fans that she has so much appreciation for. After a while it must be hard not to get annoyed or lose trust in those people. There is no possible way one person can please everybody, and there is not, JUST ONE, right look for her. There is not, JUST ONE, right look for anybody. All of the biggest stars in Hollywood change their style on a regular basis. This is also what helps them draw the attention of the viewers like us. As for her carreer. Charice did have a busy schedule for 2012. Here is a list of guestings that I can remember. (Please forgive me if I forgot a few Cha) – Did a photoshoot for Preview Magazine – Had the airing of the “One For The Heart” Valentine Concert (Februrary 12, 2012) – Infinity Tour Concerts: Dubai, Indonesia, Korea, Japan, Philippines, buy cialis online Hong Kong, Singapore, and Hawaii. (March 2, 2012 – March 21, 2012) – Won the Favorite Asian Act from Nickelodeon (April 1, 2012) – Performed at the KababayanFest 2012 in generic cialis California (June 30, 2012) – viagra generic teva Flew back and forth every week during the X Factor Philippines. (June 23, 2012 – Oct. 14, 2012) – Sang live with Gary V on ASAP (Oct. 14, 2012) – The US launch of Here Comes The Boom, which she received high praises on. (Oct. 9, 2012) – Interview on “The Couch” broadcasted live on TV (October 10, 2012) – Interviewed on MySpace (Oct. 11, 2012) – Performed at TOFA Awards in NYC (Oct. 27, 2012) – Infinity Tour Hawaii (Nov. 3, 2012) – Appeared on The Buzz, KrisTV, and ASAP Chillout (December 2, 2012) – And was also mentioned in various magazines and blogs throughout the year… To me this seems like one heck of a schedule. There are many levitra with alcohol other huge celebrities out there that make only a handful of appearances every year, and the only reason why you hear about them so much is because TV shows like TMZ, Extra and ET like to have reporters follow them and shove cameras in their faces so they have something to talk about every day. To even balance a international schedule like Charice did is absolutely amazing for a 20 year old. Give her some credit. Give her a break. Just appreciate what she has brought to the table and contributed to us. When any of you are going through hard times in life, how do you feel when your elders constantly pressure you with lectures and advices? In the end, you would really prefer being with a few close friends who will comfort and support you in making your decision regardless of what it is. If you made the right choice, you will celebrate together. If you made the wrong choice, they wil console you and find ways to make you feel better, and ready to tackle on the next obstacle in life. Nobody likes being told what to do. We are humans, not puppets. I know some people will agree with me and some will disagree. That’s fine. It’s just how life is. There are BILLIONS of people in this world, and if we didn’t have different opinions on things life would be boring as hell. Just remember that just because you read something, it doesn’t necessarily mean that you interpreted it correctly. It is extremely easy to misunderstand messages trying to be portrayed on social media, so please take a second to make sure you understand 100% what the writer is trying to say before you bash them. I say all of this with the utmost respect for everybody. Spread love…not hate. Looking forward to a great year for Charice. Peace out~! #LeggoCharice2013 Original Twitter Account link: NYChaster Twitlonger Full Twit Written by NYChaster Thanks for taking the time to write this one Hoonie (NYChaster) and we hope that you guys will leave your comments below.
