Charice's mom apologizes, appeals for understanding

Charice's mom apologizes, appeals for understanding

MANILA, Philippines- After drawing negative feedback from the entertainment press, the mother of international singing sensation Charice on Monday came to the defense of her daughter.

Charice’s mom, Racquel, appealed for understanding from the entertainment press, who got mad after the 18-year-old songstress refused to grant them an interview last January 8.

Charice performed with Mr Pure Energy Gary Valenciano at SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds two weeks ago where they also launched their individual scents created by Aficionado Germany Perfumes by Joel Cruz.

Before and after Charice's performance, no one was reportedly allowed to get an interview with the young singer. Also, fans were prohibited from going near her. The rumor was that Oprah Winfrey ordered the tight security.

Racquel explained that her daughter was already too tired and wanted to rest after the show.

“Kasi ‘yong araw na dumating si Charice, mula umaga, natapos ‘yong concert halos 1 a.m,” she said. “Pero sana naman ay naiintindihan nila na napapagod din ‘yong bata, na kailangan ding magpahinga. Hindi nila kasi alam kung gaano ka-busy si Charice sa America para mag-comment ang iba ng ganoon,” she said.

“All the time naman na uuwi kami, lahat ‘yan (interviews) ay napagbibigyan namin,” she added.

Racquel also reiterated that, contrary to criticisms, Charice has never forgotten the Philippines and her humble beginnings. “Lagi kong pinapaisip sa kanya, there’s no place like home. Home niya ang Philippines. Iba pa rin ang mga Filipino.”

‘Disappointed’

Some reporters expressed disappointment over the incident.

Below were some of their sentiments:

“Humihingi na ng permiso, ‘yong handler n’ya sinabing she’s just here to sing . Hindi kami makalapit doon sa tent, paglabas niya ng tent ay nakatalukbong na siya tapos naglalakad na para siyang bulag na inaalalayan siya noong malalaking mama, tapos tinatawag namin siya ni hindi siya lumingon so parang nakakasama ng loob. Nagulat lang ako that night, kasi may sinabing ‘yong handler niya na protocol diumano at galing iyon sa opisina ni Oprah Winfrey. Gusto man naming intindihin pero bakit hindi man lang ginawang exception to the rule ang Philippines bilang isang Filipina ka? Nakakairita! Sumama ang loob ko,” an emotional Ambet Nabus of Pinoy Parazzi said.

“How sad! It’s so unbecoming of a Filipino artist na ganoon ang ginawa niyang trato sa media. Parang sorry ha, pero yuck! Disappointed ako sa kanya,” added Leo Bukas of People’s Taliba.

If some were disappointed, columnist and talent manager Alfie Lorenzo has a different take on the issue.

He said: “The security are just doing their job. Ganyan talaga ang security sa Amerika, sinusunod lang, kaya walang pagkukulang si Charice.”

Racquel has apologized to the press over the incident.

“Humihingi ako ng paumanhin, sana naiintindihan ninyo rin na napapagod din ang anak ko. Huwag na lang itong pahabain,” Racquel said. -Reports from James Cantos, PUSH.com.ph and radio dzMM

Ay naku ganyan talaga ang mga fans, tao din naman si charice na napapagod din and sumusunod nga utos, yan ang consequence ng pagiging sikat na public figure. they just treat you like figure and forget that you have feelings too to just just jump to any conclusion of charice being maarte kasi nga sikat. haay buhay

Hi Clarissa,
Tama ka diyan. Hindi kasalanan ni Charice kung hindi niya napagbigyan ang gustong uminterview sa kanya dahil order ni Oprah Winfrey ang paghihigpit nang security ni Charice. Dapat unawain din nang ating kababayan ang mga limitasyon ni Charice at huwag na siyang batikusin. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

Hi Shy,
Tama ka duon Shy. Hindi maarte si Charice at tao lang siya. Kung hindi maintindihan nang mga local reporters ang paghihigpit nang security ni Charice dahil na rin sa bilin ni Ophrah Winfrey ay sila ang may problema at hindi si Charice. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.

I feel bad that they treat charice like a business super bata pa nung tao para gawing work machine. Sana namanmaintindihan ng press that with all her commitments eh talaga hectic ang kanyang sched and that she gets tired and need to rest.

Hi Rose,
Sometimes our local press can be so unfair and brutal to local celebrities like Charice. She is just human who can get tired and needs rest. Another thing, the strict discipline maintained by the security of Charice was due to the strict order of Ophrah Winfrey to them. Thanks for your visit and comments. God bless you all always.
