TEEN SINGER GETS BOTOX
Teen singer Charice says she prepared for her debut on the hit Fox TV show “Glee” by getting Botox and an anti-aging procedure “to look fresh on camera,” but her publicist said the Botox was for muscle pain, not for cosmetic reasons.
The 18-year-old Filipino singer, who has a booming voice, recently released her self-titled debut album. She saw her career skyrocket after appearing on Ellen
DeGeneres’ and Oprah Winfrey’s talk shows. Charice underwent a 30-minute Thermage skin-tightening procedure and Botox injections to make her “naturally round face” more narrow, celebrity cosmetic surgeon Vicki Belo told ABS-CBN television.
But the singer’s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, said in an e-mail Monday that the Botox was “absolutely not cosmetic” and said the treatment was for muscle pain in her jaw.
