Austin American-Statesman - - TUESDAY BRIEFING -

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.
