Charice: Botox Treatments for Glee Debut

Pop starlet Charice is gearing up for her debut on Glee – and she’s getting a little help from Botox to look her best.

The 18-year-old Filipino singer underwent Botox treatment and a skin tightening procedure to “look fresh on camera” and to narrow her “naturally round face”. Charice‘s treatments were performed by cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo, who filled ABS-CBN television about Charice‘s makeover (via AP).

Filming for Glee begins at the end of this month, Charice said.

At first we were skeptical about this rumor — but then we watched the below video. Check it out for proof!


Charice Undergoes Botox Treatment

UPDATE: Charice’s rep tells Us Weekly that the Botox was used “to relieve a jaw problem similar to TMJ.”

“It did not hurt; it relieved the pain,” her rep added. “You’ve seen her face – she doesn’t have a wrinkle in it so she wouldn’t need it for cosmetic purposes. The Glee people are thrilled with the way she looks which is why she got the part.”

  • Catchy

    18 y.o. girl gets botox treatment? what?

  • YY

    My Goodness. This has been blown out of proportion!

    1) CHARICE DID NOT GET BOTOX SHOTS TO MAKE HERSELF LOOK YOUNG-ER.
    2) According to the doctor (in an interview), Charice went to her clinic because she has a couple of pimples on her forehead.
    3) The doctor suggested that Charice should get Botox shots and thermage treatment because she (BELO) noticed that Charice’s cheeks were getting bigger. Supposedly, Charice’s cheek muscles got bigger because she constantly chews gum.
    4) Charice shouldn’t have listened to the Filipino doctor (Dr. Belo). Belo is freakin’ crazy!

    I feel sad for Charice. She’s such a good girl. It’s heartbreaking that she now goes through all these madness.

  • Mimi

    what the hell??!!!! what did her parent think about this?

  • zzzzzzzzzzzz

    botox? 18?…… THIS IS THE END OF THE WORLD

  • Marta

    Botox at 18 ?What next?Lifting at 25??
    this girl is so so stupid.

  • GoodGirl

    Welcome to Hollywood!

  • chewing gum?

    Chewing gum does not make your cheeks get larger. This poor girl is apparently not pretty enough for her stupid show, so she’s resorted to cosmetic procedures meant for the 40 plus crowd. Tragic.

  • Deedz

    Wow. This is some serious f-ckery Charice.

  • Iffy Miffy

    Great voice, small brain it seems. Hello, you’re freaking 18 years old!!! And why does she need a more ‘narrow’ face?! What is wrong with a round face?! Too Asian perhaps?! Man, this world’s going down the drain fast.

  • sami

    what?! sheesh, i’m filipino, but i totally don’t support her. she’s just so… gaaah! and come on Dr. Vicki Belo, have you lost your mind? she’s 18! unless you call having a “naturally round face” a hindering deformity, this procedure should just NOT be done!

  • hmmm

    @Marta: she isn’t stupid, my theory is that charice’s management can see she is so obedient to them that they can almost make her do anything without questioning. realize i have said almost, because had it not been for her mother being there 24/7, who knows what else they would have made her do?

  • status qup

    Big :0( ….. damn you hollywood.

  • sami

    @hmmm she’s 18, that’s the legal age here in the PH… as far as i’m concerned, she should already have a mind of her own and be able to stand up for herself

  • http://Justjared.com Angela

    She bad bad bad

  • http://Justjared.com Angela

  • justcharrie
  • cindy

    That’s crazy and not setting a good example for young girls who look up to her.She could end up looking like Kim K in the future. She use to look pretty until she did stuff to her face too. Charice your stupid to be doing this just for a part on glee. You have a good voice dont’ be dumb girl!

  • Alaia

    What a loser. I hope they fire her.

  • Jordt

    WHAT A HORRIBLE THING TO DO!! AND TO BROADCAST IT!

    Yes let your young fans see that at 18 you need botox. Horrible role model. I hope she has a horrible career and is terrible on Glee.

  • sami

    this is just pathetic, even for hollywood standards..

  • mailey

    this was a grounded girl from a poor, Third World country.

    now let’s all sadly witness her demise and descent into Hollywood superficiality.

  • tim

    this is so so so so sad
    she is a brilliant fabulous singer
    she looks wonderful the way she is
    her natural look and sweetness is part of the appeal
    don’t tell me next will be the nose job the lip job and then of course
    the asian gal boob job
    or asia gal newscaster eye job
    she is lovely the way she is
    at 18
    where do you go from there!

  • maud

    Welcome to the Philippines! Sometimes they really can be morons (and I am a Filipina myself)

  • ally

    I’ll translate the video for you all.

    The reporter says:
    “The plastic surgeon is Charice’s godmother.

    Charice likes to chew alot of gum, which has affected her face shape (SERIOUSLY, the reporter says that!!)

    Her international manager has consulted with many stylists to talk about what the best look for Charice should be.

    Shortly after the botox treatments, she was able to perform and the controversial surgeon can be seen in the front row”.

  • annabelle

    i was so shocked when i read it. i thought: maybe they just mean her character in the show, but no i didn’t read wrong. i hate to say it, but i’m afraid she’s gonna lose fans over this. it bothers me a lot cause it just feels wrong, i’m literally sitting here with a nervous/nausea feeling in my stomach.

  • sherhona

    WHAT THE FCUK!!!!! 18 YEARS OF AGE.. AND BOTOX???? SERIOUSLY… -_-

  • Mia

    WTF indeed. She needs to surround herself with better people…how could someone let her do this. Hollywood will give you a million for a picture and 5 cents for your soul

  • liz

    this is crazy! geez doctor leave this girl alone. whats wrong with her round face, she became popular for her voice and not looks anyway! this is terrible and to make things worse, she has to have cameras with her when she did it! geez! so sad!

  • anonymous

    if you’re going to ACT on glee, you need 2 b able to MOVE your face… botox, seriously?? she has no flaws/wrinkles… wtf… i’m filipino 2 and i’m disgusted

  • yonip

    She’s cute and very talented but unfortunately in the Philippines the definition of beautiful is someone who is tall, with long, black hair and very fair skinned. People started getting glutathione injections to become lighter and of course, people started cashing in on this trend. Doctors who are not dermatologists doing procedures, getting these injections without prescriptions, non-medical people injecting botox etc.. etc…

    4) The botox was for her jaw/cheek muscles. Apparently, botox shots would relax the muscles (and stop them from getting bigger.)
    5) Charice shouldn’t have listened to the Filipino doctor (Dr. Belo). Belo is freakin’ crazy!

    UPDATE:

    6) Charice’s rep says that Charice experiences jaw pains, and it’s the reason why she got Botox shots for her jaw/cheek muscles.

    I feel sad for Charice. She’s such a good girl. It’s heartbreaking that she now goes through all these madness.

  • Annette

    Botox at 18!! What comes next surgery at 25!!!
    HORRIBLE!!!

  • wow

    @YY: are you her mother? shut up!!!!!!

  • jules

    Congratulations Dr Vicki Belo. You’ve just given negative publicity to Charice.
    Hope you are proud of yourself.

  • Alaia

    Now that I know the full story, maybe I shouldn’t have called her a loser. Ha! I take that back.

  • smallminds

    The irony of course is that the reason why Charice did not win those singing competitions when she was younger was because she didn’t conform to the ideals of beauty in her home country. Never mind that she was a better singer than her competition; looks trump talent. You can be a middling actress or singer in the Philippines, but if you’re good looking enough, fair-skinned enough, you can have a career in the local showbiz industry.
    Charice was only recognized in the Philippines because of the attention she got in the U.S. And now her handlers are pressuring her to undergo cosmetic procedures at age 18 so that she will be as “pretty” as the other starlets, even though it is her singing voice, and unconventional appeal that made her stand out and garnered the attention of Oprah, Foster, etc.

  • Frida

    Insane! This is just insane, she’s 18 for god’s sake!

  • http://Www.jestjared.com Kaz

    Each ladies hollywood have botox and blastic surgery and……

  • http://Www.jestjared.com Kaz

    Ladies alwayes change change

  • Annie

    Actually, botox is a legitimate management of TMJ

    However, I’ll hazard a guess that Charise has no such thing and this is just the latest publicist excuse for getting shot full of botox, much like the deviated septum thing.

  • hertzblaster

    No big issue for me. I bet all women wants to look beautiful.Especially in front of camera. Most women use powder and make-up to hide imperfections in their faces. Moneyed people can do more. Why not Charice? Be real people! Chill down!

    Anyway, this issue a huge one. Much bigger when she was rumored to be on glee before

    Just enjoy her latest powerful performance here.

  • Lziel

    Charice, say NO to botox! You are naturally beautiful and that’s what separate you from other mainstream artists. Just rest, sleep and eat healthy if you want look fresh for Glee. Botox is so unnatural just look at those frozen faces that can’t show emotion at all. Glee picked you because of your natural beauty, please don’t change it. Don’t believe those fake people that you need this and that. You’re still young. Please stay away from those who only want to use you for publicity.

  • i n f a m o u s l y c o o l

    …stupid little girl. people normally wait till they’re actually famous to do shiit like this. ahahahahahahaa.. this unknown little fcuker’s jumping the gun a bit. botox for glee.. ahahahahahahaha priceless. did her 15 mins of fame even start yet?!? ahahahahahahaha

  • Brenna
