Charice continues to make her fellow Filipinos very proud as she goes around the US to promote her single “Pyramid,” a collaboration with world-wide rap sensation Iyaz, which will be part of her upcoming self-titled first international album. But there are rumors spreading online that Charice has been performing in several gay clubs in the US, something that is unexpected from a young artist like her.


In her live interview with Kris Aquino on The Buzz last Sunday, Charice admitted she does perform in gay clubs in the US, but emphasized that there’s nothing wrong with it.  “Nagpo-promote po ako ng single, ‘yung remix ng ‘Pyramid.’  May nag-Tweet na nag-guest ako sa isang gay club.  But before pa po nu’n four times na akong nag-promote sa clubs at gay clubs.  Nagulat lang ako na nagkaroon ng issue. Eighteen na po ako. At hindi lang naman ako ‘yung gumagawa ng nun. Ganun po talaga sila sa US. Ang ginagawa ko lang naman po e nagpe-perform tapos umaalis na ako agad. Hindi lang kasi pop ang ginagawa ko, pati dance pinasok ko na rin.”

Charice will turn eighteen on May 10, and on the day after her birthday, she will launch her international debut album on the Oprah Winfrey Show. The singer also added that young hit-maker Justin Bieber will also be in the same episode as Oprah’s guest. Next, Charice is set to appear on Good Morning America, also to promote her album. The former Little Big Star runner-up considers the successful launch of her album as the best gift she could ever receive on her birthday.  ‘Pyramid’ recently peaked at number four in the US Billboard Hot Dance Club Party play chart, and just last month, Charice was hailed by the New York Post as ‘US’s newest Pop Princess.’  

But in spite of the worldwide success, Charice is continuously being haunted by ugly controversies involving her mother, who is accused of being money-hungry and very controlling of her daughter’s career.  For her mother’s courage in facing all these intrigues, Charice sent out this heartfelt message. “Thank you po sa lahat ng ginawa niyo for us. Sobra akong humahanga sa kanya kasi anak niya ako pero sa kanya binabato lahat ng negative comments. Nasasaktan na ako, what more pa siya. Hinahangaan ko siya sa pagiging matapang niya. Nandito lang kami ni Carl (her brother) para sa kanya.”
