HINDI NAMIN alam kung maiinis o maiintindihan namin si Charice Pempengco sa bago niya ngayong look.
[We don't know if we're going to be annoyed or if we'll still be able to understand Charice Pempengco on her new look.]
Sa new look niya ay halos iisa lang ang tanong sa Twitter: “Anyare?”
[On her new look there is but one question on Twitter: "What happened?"]
Kesa mainis siguro ay gusto na lamang naming intindihin si Charice na ‘yung “barako look” niya nowadays ay trip niya o happiness niya.
[Instead of probably getting annoyed, we would just like to understand Charice that her "macho look" nowadays is just her trip or her happiness.]
Na hindi naman natin kayang ibigay ‘yung ikaliligaya niya, so sino tayo para humusga sa “boyish look” niya ngayon.
[That we can never give her 'what makes her happy', so who are we to judge her "boyish look" now.]
Pero ang masaklap kasi roon, nasundan ng mga tao ang ‘ika nga’y rags to riches na career, eh.
[Uhm, but the worse thing about it is that the people already followed her so called 'rags to riches' career.]
Nagsimula sa pasali-sali sa amateur singing contests, hanggang sa naging runner-up ni Sam Concepcion sa isang singing search sa ABS-CBN na mas sumikat pa siya sa grand champion, ‘di ba?
[She started from joining amateur singing contests until she became a runner-up to Sam Concepcion in a singing search on ABS-CBN and she became even more famous than the grand champion, right?]
Kinilala nina Oprah, Ellen De Generes at iba pang international chu-chu si Charice, kaya sumikat talaga siya.
[Charice was recognized by Oprah, Ellen De Generes and other international so-so, that's why she really became famous.]
Tapos, mula nang maging judge siya sa X-Factor, pinuna rin ang linggo-linggo niyang pagpapalit ng hair style ay sunud-sunod na ang pang-ookray ke Charice, pero deadma lang ang batang singer.
[And then, from the time she became a judge on X-Factor, her weekly change of hairstyle was criticized, and so the continuous bashing went on for Charice, but the young singer was just dead malice.]
So ngayon pa ba maaapektuhan si Charice sa pambabatikos sa kanya? Manhid na siguro siya.
[So is now the time for Charice to be affected by the criticisms on her? Maybe she had become completely numb.]
Pero if I were Charice, dapat, ibalik na niya sa dating inosenteng mukha ang packaging niya.
[But if I were Charice, her packaging should return to her former innocent look.]
Parang nasa adjustment period pa ang tao ngayon kung tatanggapin ba siya o iintindihin na lamang kasi du’n siya masaya.
[It's like the people are now in an adjustment period whether they would accept her or just understand her because that's where she's happy.]
Ikaw rin naman ang dahilan kumbakit ka kinilala internationally. At ikaw rin ba ang magwawaley no’n sa tao?
[You're the reason why you became internationally recognized. Will you also be the one to destroy it from the people?]
Think about it. Sayang naman kung ipagpapatuloy mo ang pagpapalit ng image.
[Think about it. It's a waste if you continue on changing your image.]
At patuloy lang sa pagtatanong ang mga tao ng, “Anyare?”
[And the people will just keep on asking: what happened?]
