To make sure she’s Glee ready, 18-year-old singer Charice Pempengco had a Botox an anti-aging procedure done before her appearance on the show.
Charice, who became a singing success after appearing on Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey‘s talk shows, wanted her face “to look fresh on camera” before filming for Glee stars at the end of the month, the Associated Press reports.
The singer had a 30-minute Thermage skin-tightening and Botox treatment to make her “naturally round face” more narrow, Vicki Belo, a celebrity cosmetic surgeon, told ABS/CBN television.
In the same interview, Charice said her makeover last week was part of her preparations for her Glee debut.
“All people will be anticipating, ‘How will Charice look?’ ” she said. “Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry? So of course there is tremendous pressure.”
“It’s really a blessing,” she said in an earlier interview about auditioning and being accepted on the show, adding she was “very proud to be an Asian, very proud to be Filipino.”
