Singer Charice Pempengco has decided to have a little makeover for her debut on Glee…with Botox…but why? Charice is only 18 years old!! I know some people do things to maintain their youth, but Charice is too young for that…this makes me sad!
The 18-year-old Filipino singer not only received Botox injections but also underwent a 30-minute Thermage anti-aging procedure.
The operations were part of an effort to make her “naturally round face” more narrow, celeb cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo tells ABS-CBN television. Charice says the makeover was necessary.
“All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry [Glee actress Lea Michele]? So of course, there is tremendous pressure,” explained the teen, who begins filming at the end of the month.
It was for a jaw problem!!
But her rep tells UsMagazine.com the point of the procedure was “to relieve a jaw problem similar to TMJ.”
“It did not hurt; it relieved the pain,” Charice’s rep tells Us. “You’ve seen her face – she doesn’t have a wrinkle in it so she wouldn’t need it for cosmetic purposes. The Glee people are thrilled with the way she looks which is why she got the part.”
Her rep insists Charice “has had no makeover other than to change her hair back to its natural color [by NYC hair colorist Brad Johns]. Other than that, she’s not changing anything about the way she looks.”
I think Charice is adorable just the way she is!
