Masculine Charice’s photos with pretty girl sends shockwaves online

A netizen with the handle krizzy_kalerQUI posted this collage of a very masculine-looking Charice with an unidentified girl on Twitter on Friday.
When international singing sensation Charice Pempengco, now simply known as Charice, first drastically altered her looks last year, not a few fans were shocked with the short, chestnut brown hair, the “Love Eternally” tattoo and the devil-may-care attitude that she insisted was just an expression of her individuality.
Once again, that individuality is expressed in a new way. In what looks like Charice Version 3.0, the diminutive singer has opted for an even more boyish look, dyeing her even shorter hair black, styling it with baby bangs and wearing conventional boys’ clothes.
Earlier, it was reported that her mom had been upset with this newer look although they seem to be okay by now.
But even as the new look continues to raise questions about Charice’s sexual orientation, a new collage of photos of Charice showing her beside a still unnamed pretty young lady does little to change this increasing impression.
While neither Charice, who is currently in Hawaii and apparently did not post the photos herself, nor the Twitter user @krizzy_kalerQUI attributed to posting it have identified who the girl is, some Twitter users who posted their reactions are already assuming that it’s Charice’s girlfriend.
Some even went as far as comparing Charice to Aiza Seguerra, the former child star and now accomplished singer-songwriter who came out of the closet in 2007. Despite her increasingly changing appearance and all the speculations about it, Charice has not made any public announcement about her sexual preference to date.
UPDATE: Upon reading this story, Twitter user Don Timbol (@DonTimbol) tweeted that the girl’s name is Charm Laguitao. According to Timbol, the girl’s boyfriend is a friend of Charice.
