‘I Have A Male Soul.’ – says Singer Charice

Charice-PempengcoFormer Glee star and pop singer, Charice has revealed she’s slowly becoming a man – but she won’t be changing her body.

The Filipino star taped a new interview with Oprah Winfrey, who discovered the singer/actress almost a decade ago, and she told the TV titan she’s changing her look to embrace her “male soul”.

Charice, who announced she was gay last year (Jun13), insists she’ll never follow Cher’s son Chaz Bono, who underwent gender reassignment to become a man – but she wants to look like one. She explains, “I’m not exactly transitioning to a male, but basically my soul is, like, male. But I’m not going to go through that stage where I’m going to change everything – not change my body.

“I’ll cut my hair and wear boy clothes and everything, but that’s all.”

Charice also recalled the moment when she realised she was gay, adding, “‘I knew when I was five. I was in grade school and I saw this girl and I felt different. I didn’t know what it was but I just knew that time, like, it felt special. And when I was 10, I was like, ‘Oh, that’s it, I’m gay’. I found the word.”

The interview airs in America today (19Oct14).

The 22-year-old looks set to address the issue on Sunday’s episode of Oprah Winfrey’s Where Are They Now, during which the talk show host asks the singer point blank about a possible sex change. In a teaser clip, the 60-year-old presenter asks, ‘Were you thinking about transitioning to become a male?’

But fans will have to watch Sunday’s show to find out Charice’s answer.

The star, known simply as Charice, looks a far cry from her younger, long-haired self, and sported a blonde buzz-cut and collared black shirt for her appearance on the show.

Charice found fame through YouTube, after videos of her singing garnered more than 15 million views. She appeared on the Oprah Winfrey Show in 2010 with the release of her first studio album, Charice, and was heralded by Oprah as ‘the most talented girl in the world.’ Continue reading
