“I really, really want to tell all the people that I don’t care if you hate it, I don’t care if you don’t like it. I’m happy now. I’m extremely happy—it’s unbelievable. I could cry, I could cry like, wow! I can’t believe I’m going out in public showing my tattoos, showing my hair, showing my outfit—I feel more free," says Charice.

Samu’t saring mga intriga at kuwento ang lumalabas dahil sa kapansin-pansing bagong imahe ni Charice sa kanyang pagbabalik sa bansa kamakailan.

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at Cinema News si Charice kahapon, May 14, sa contract signing at pictorial niya sa The X-Factor sa ELJ Building ng ABS-CBN Compound.

May laman ang mga binitawan niyang salita kaugnay ng usap-usapan sa bagong imahe niya.

Aniya, “I don’t care whatever you think.

"Tao ako—at least tao ako. As long as my fans love me and support me, I’m good with that. 

“However, kahit sino man ang mag-stay with me 'til the end of my career… those are the people that I trust.

"And the others that still have doubts, questions and everything, bahala na sila.”

THE REAL CHARICE. Ipinaliwanag ng international singer ang dahilan ng pagbabagong-imahe niya.

   

“Honestly, actually hindi talaga siya change image—what you see now is the real me and what you [saw] before wasn’t me.

“A lot of people around me, like in the U.S. and here, they didn’t really know what I really wanted so they were deciding for me. 

“I didn’t get the chance to do that myself.

"Now that I’m being so independent while it’s early...

“I really, really want to tell all the people that I don’t care if you hate it, I don’t care if you don’t like it.

“I’m happy now. I’m extremely happy—it’s unbelievable.

"I could cry, I could cry like, wow!

“I can’t believe I’m going out in public showing my tattoos, showing my hair, showing my outfit—I feel more free.”
