Charice has traded her long black hair for a blonde short hairdo.

The 19-year-old singer is also sporting a tattoo that says "Love Eternally." In between the two words, an Infinity sign has been inked on Charice's left forearm.

The YouTube singing sensation says that she did these changes since she wants her image to be more like Avril Lavigne or Rihanna.

During her press conference held yesterday, March 8, at the Marriott Hotel, Charice told select members of the media: "I know some people are more used to the old Charice, sa ballad singer with the pigtails.

"For me, in my heart, I've always wanted to be more edgy, rock, more [on the] dark side.

"I'm really happy and this is a big deal for me 'coz finally, nararating ko ang mga gusto ko.

"I know some people think that this is very rebellious but it's not. It's just me evolving.

"It's me transforming into another person that is totally me."

Since she has achieved so much in the entertainment scene, both here and abroad, Charice is aware that she is considered to be a role model for a lot of young people.

She says, "I know may mga tao na nagsasabing ako ang inspirasyon nila.

"Ang gusto ko lang sabihin, magbago man ang looks ko, yung attitude is still the same."

The singer reveals that the people managing there are two differing opinions being considered for her image.

"Yung ibang people sa management, gusto nila yung look ko parang Selena Gomez.

"The other one, they want me to be more like Avril Lavigne, which is what I like. Or more like Rihanna.
