Charice change her look into a blonde short hairdo and had a tattoo in her left forearm that says “Love Eternally”, between the two words is a symbol of Infinity.
She said that she did these changes because she wants to be more like Rihanna or Avril Lavigne.
A press conference held last March 8 (Thursday), at the Marriott Hotel, Charice said, “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.”
She is also aware that she is considered a role model for 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.”
There are two differing opinions being considered for her image. She said, “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. That’s what I like. That’s what we’re trying to do.”
