What is Charice thinking? She did NOT need to get Botox to compete against Lea!

UPDATE: Charice’s rep tells Us Weekly that Charice did not get Botox, but instead underwent a procedure “to relieve a jaw problem similar to TMJ.”

Glee‘s newest cast member Charice (she’ll be joining the show in the fall) is already feeling the pressure of being on one of the hottest shows on TV. According to a new report, which Charice herself confirms, the 18-year-old pop star got Botox to look camera-ready!

“All people will be anticipating how will Charice look?” she tells Filipino news channel ABS-CBN. “Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry? So of course there is tremendous pressure.”

I’m not sure why Charice felt the need to look younger. At 18, she’s already younger than most of her fellow “teens” at McKinley High School. For crying out loud, Puck (Mark Salling) is 27 and Finn (Cory Monteith) is 28!

FYI. The jaw muscle extends from your jaw up to your temple. With TMJ, the jaw muscles are inflamed and will protrude leaving a very prominent mass around one’s face. Other than the superficial, TMJ is sometimes very painful and may affect one’s speech & hearing especially if it is already severe. And yes, excessive chewing of gum can bring about TMJ.

From what I see of Charice, it seems like she is suffering from TMJ. If you can compare, her face has exponentially & unusually gotten much rounder as compared to her already naturally round face in just a few months. If it was just a natural growth, like gaining weight like most adolescent kids heading towards their awkward years as a young adult, the mass on her chins will also be protruding – double chin, which isn’t as significant as Charice’s temporomandibular joint.

Now, the botox and thermage procedures done on her isn’t a permanent treatment but a very effective “band aid” solution. But it seems like, with her commitments and the things that are lined-up for her, she may not have the luxury of a permanent, invasive surgery that will render her incapable from performing as a singer for a good 3 months of recovery. Not to mention that this invasive surgery may permanently affect her singing capabilities.

As to why it was done by a Cosmetic Doctor and this eventually casting doubt that she may have also done something else, my short answer is “Why not?” The procedures done are actually very practical for her situation. This is what they call “two birds with one stone.” Not only does it temporarily relieves her of her TMJ and, in due course, will also reduce the mass growing around her face – which is good for TV appearances, I assume. Why a Cosmetic Doctor and not a Dentist? Why not? They too are licensed to do so. And not to mention, it was done for FREE (well, technically it wasn’t since it was an “X-Deal”) – which explains the local TV News coverage and why the Doctor was blabbering more about the “beauty-results” rather than the treatment for the TMJ. It was to promote the Cosmetic Doctor’s business! Definitely, this was not about promoting Charice as a singer!

The problem about this whole thing is the manner this “X-Deal” was done with the Doctor and the manner it was presented to the media. Of course, media will bite the news more if it was tagged as a cosmetic procedure rather than a minor treatment for TMJ. The ones handling Charice should have been much careful with these details. They should have learned their lesson when they had Charice promoting her single in (gay) bars when she was still barely 18 years of age.

I’d like to spare Charice of this problem but it is already up in the air. But I’d like to also point-out that having a round face is not a uniquely Filipino countenance – having brown skin and a small nose is but that even isn’t even true anymore as the Malay population in the Philippines is getting more diverse or mixed as the our history would tell by being once a colony of Spain, America and Japan.

eske is right. that is the whole truth about this issue. i really think highly of american showbiz and its media. how dissapointing it is that they are making a big deal out of this. i should think people who comment here bout being against botox are such hypocrites and i know racists as well.
i’m so disgusted with the people here, who do they think they are? just a bunch of envious hypocrites.

“…I may not been accepted, but I was proud to be me. I stuck to who I was and did my own thing…” quote Lea Michele (high school years).

“Feel confortable in your own skin” quote Lea Michele

This Glee thing is about acting and proyect your soul, they both can sing, so YES I think Lea Michele won the pressure battle

People some people may like one over the other but stop trying to pit Lea against Charcie. Both have talent, leave it at that. This is sad if true, not a time to fight over something subjective like who is better.

Charice did NOT need botox – someone had to talk her into this. However, Babs, you may have to eat your words – have you seen Charice perform – she is a definite WOW – and I believe can definitely give Lea/Rachel a run for her money. Actually, I don’t understand all the hype about Rachel Berry anyway.

It was still her choice to do this. lol at better then Lea Michele. Charice is no better then the other Filipino girls in the Philippines. Way to go and throw the meaning of Glee out the window.

Not only is this extremely depressing and pathetic, she will NEVER EVER compare to Lea Michele/Rachel Berry. So basically, it’s fruitless and pathetic. Way to go.
