Charice fans resort to sock puppetry to promote Charice

At AATheory; Charice fans have stooped to such low levels in promoting Charice. They are now creating sock puppets to create some noise about the Jojo/Whitney/ Celine clone. I have proof that they created sock puppets to create a false impression that she has many fans.  From Charicediva.com: (note the highlighted portion)

Charice fans are pathetic and can’t tolerate opinions that they don’t agree with. If they feel the need to  create imaginary fans of that little copycat on a little site, how can they handle the opinions of the catty people of Oh No They Didn’t who haven’t been impressed with Charice?  Check out the unflattering comments coming from ONTD: 04-24 newer link link, link, link, link

04-18-10 Update

Since AAtheory is down until 04-20, I’ll post a screenshot of my post that exposed the despicable behavior of Charice fans:

Over at ChariceDiva, Charice fans are showing their true nature. They’re actually condoning deception and sock puppetry. Those lowlifes aren’t ashamed of their bad behavior. In fact, some of them are attacking the whisteblower for exposing the truth:

Last, but not least is the person who started the whole thing. Modster lacked the spine to let the original message to remain as it is. That person edited the original message urging other vile people like him/herself to create sock puppets. Just note how shameless and unremorseful that person is:

No wonder some Filipinos are so butthurt when somebody calls the Philippines a nation of servants or make a comment that Filipinos have nothing going for them other than Manny Pacquiao.

  1. cardcrusher is a brave person who exposes the true nature of Charice and her delusional fans

    Cardcrusher’s note: The comment maker failed to read the warnings about unacceptable comments on this page. Therefore, I’ve modified it.

  2. Get over it, faggot. Just cause you’re not famous and she is. If she didn’t have tons of fans, then why is she on notable charts? Guess you’re a fan too since you’re a member of CHARICEDIVA! Lame attempt moron. You’re a fan, but you won’t admit it. Anybody who takes the time to actually create an account at a fansite must obviously really have an interest for this person. YOU FAIL. LMAO!

    • Way to go in ignoring the issue of Charice fans CREATING SOCK PUPPETS to promote the copycat! How can I be a fan when I oppose you and the little Whitney/Celine/Jojo clone everywhere on the internet? Ever heard of guerrilla warfare, especially how it was utilized in the Vietnam War? If you have, you’d realize why a single person like me can put an ignorant mob of Charice fans on the defensive.

      Seriously, create a better straw man other than that fame nonsense.

      What “notable” charts? The Hot 100 and Billboard 200 are the only notable charts where I live.

  3. Check those links retard. They’re 50/50. Some say JoJo is better, some say Charice is better. Nonetheless, Charice is still a rookie and this is her first pop/rnb album. JoJo’s had a few pop/rnb hits already. Like they say, YOU CAN’T PLEASE EVERYONE…especially you. You seem content on all your hatred. It’s all good though, there’s thousands of people who discover and admire Charice every day. And it’ll only keep growing. Can’t say the same for you.

    • A rookie?! You’ve got to the kidding me! She already has two albums FULL OF COVER TRACKS. BTW it’s more like 70//30, the 30 being the ChariceTards.

      • “charicetards”…. abusive ad hominem .

        Butthurt much? On the defensive?

        • Me butthurt or on the defensive? Nope. Look at who started labeling people as ‘tards first. I just reciprocate on this blog.

    • AGREE! I just discovered Charice yesterday. And Cardcrusher, I am not her fan and I am not registered on her site nor I feel any urge to do so. I downloaded some of her videos from Youtube and that’s it. I never registered on any fan site to any celebrity in my 50 years.
      She IS a great singer and probably will be even better. You can not deny that whatever you write and bragg about.
      You and guerrilla warfare? Shame I can not post a sound here for you to hear me laughing to tears. I bet in my life that all guerrilla warfare that you ever knew is typing BS on a computer! And being from Bosnia, I know what I am talking about.
      You’re moaning about how your comments were edited/deleted from Charice’s web site and what you did with the first comment here? Now since I am not a native English speaker you can correct my spellings if you want. Otherwise either publish it as it is, or do not publish it at all. Do not turn this text in your favor as it was not meant that way.

  4. I’m sure you realize it’s normal for fans to be zealous in promoting their idol. This is not a particular trait of Charice’s fans, it’s widespread. There will always be individuals that get too eager, but this is something I believe you would find in all camps if you did your research. Hence the impression of the number of fans Charice have, is probably no more distorted than impressions of other upcoming artists’ fan bases.

    I’m excited to see how her upcoming album will do, and I hope the number of fans will continue to grow as they have lately (In my own country Charice is still unknown to most, but in the last month I’ve seen an increasing number of blog entries by Norwegian teens about Charice, and to my surprise her song Pyramid was the most requested song in my local area radio yesterday). It’s still too early to conclude how Charice’s future career will turn out, but quite a few key people in the US music business seem to believe there are great things in store for her. At the moment, I see no major reason to disagree with that, allthough I’m not blind to the challenges she will face.

    On a final note It’s OK if you dislike the music or the fans of a young and upcoming artist. It’s even OK to voice your opinion a few times. But remember that from a moral point of view (artists are human beings just like the rest of us), being overzealous in spreading negativity directed at a young artist, is most often worse than being overzealous in giving positive support to that artist.

    • Fair enough. Overzealous behavior is not limited to Charice fans or Filipinos in general.

      It is indeed too early to predict how Charice’s career will turn out, but with the generic singles of the upcoming album, it’d a be a mild success at best.

      I have to disagree with you when you wrote that overzealous spreading of negativity is worse than fans being overzealous when giving support. What the Charice fans did is wrong, unethical, and disrespectful to the host,AATheory. As an Asian American, it pisses me off that malefactors have created deception at a site that promotes Asian American for the most part.

      • I think you should be wary of the host of aatheory. You should read her blog, starting from day 1, ie May 2009.
        She has deleted comments, not to her liking.

        • Really? I didn’t know that and have not been censored, but then again, I don’t flame people there even if they hurl insults at me.

          Thanks for the tip. I thought AATheory only started out last fall (2009).

          In any case, it’s Ellie’s turf, and we’re just guests. It’s too bad that Filipino fans of Charice have to fuck things up with their deception and sock puppetry. That is just rude to the people who run AATheory.

        • I meant her Yo-El blog at blogspot.

          Some people become obnoxious and stuck-up, when they become successful, eg 6PM and JYP.
          I think, she may be one of them, bc in Feb/Mar 2010, she bashed Coldests/ex-Hottests in her Vlogs, ie she supported the famous 6PM and couldn’t cared less for the soon-to-be-forgotten Jaebeom.
          Hope she will change.
          Can’t blame her for being so hungry for success, at 23. Wish her luck.

          What is your opinion on all the AA Youtube star wannabes, being “hyped”-up at aatheory ?

        • Oh, I see. I can’t comment on her blog or her work at Seoulbeats, but I appreciate her work on AATheory even if the indie AA musicians are not my cup of tea. I come there for AA related light entertainment/ gossip/ news content (Angry Asian Man slightly irritates me at times).

          I can’t say I’m a fan of some of those AA singers who just do cover songs.

          Thanks for the tip.

  5. I love charice….

    • I hope it’s not the type of love that would make you think it’s ok to mislead people that there are more Charice fans around.

      • You are misleading… try to look yourself at the mirror.
        I love charice…. no matter what happened

        what about you, what kind of love giving you to your family and youeself.. YOU ARE MISLEADING…. try to love yourself
        Cardcrusher’s note: I combined three messages into one without altering the messages.

        • How am I misleading (others?)?

          I actually love myself and fellow Filipinos. That’s why I call out the bullshit that they do.

  6. why do we have to pay attention to this loser. JUST IGNORE cardcrusher, he/she will just slip into oblivion.

    • Elrem
      Why do yo conveniently ignore the proof of the rotten things that some Charice fans have been doing? What do you have to say about their behavior? Can you drop the ad hominems for a second to discuss the issues I’ve brought up?

  7. If she’s such a superstar, why is she doing gigs like at gay clubs and stuff. Trying to appeal to the trannies, or trying to steal their style? Hmmm

    • A superstar according to who and what standards?

      As for the gay club, there’s a reason behind it. Gays are early adopter and sets trends that would trickle down to the mainstream. Don’t quote me on this, but gays have a certain way to make trends even if the some in the mainstream don’t know that they fashion/music/etc they’ve been consuming was first adopted by gays. I’m pretty sure that you can find more authoritative info about that elsewhere.

      Charice could use the help of some gay people to improve her style!

  8. To Cardcrusher:

    I find it sad that the whole point of your blog is to bring down Charice.

    Fan is short for FANATIC. And thats what many Charice fans are. Yes they will do stuff like sock puppetry, but fans of all music stars do that.

    Just a word of advice: instead of dwelling on the negative why dont you do a blog about something you LIKE? You will be more happy.

    • Before you start giving some unsolicited advice, I suggest you read the blog first before you label its “whole point” is to bring down Charice. Out of the few blog entries, how many are about “bringing down” Charice? That’s what I thought.

      What do the sock puppetry of other fans of other musicians have to do with the example I mentioned? The deception is still wrong even if others do it.

  9. I believe some fans of other artists in the world are just like that… are you a member of charicediva?

    • It doesn’t make it right even if others do it. The sock puppetry and deception are fraud and unethical.

      As for the member thing, that’s pretty obvious. One can’t view the deception some Charice fans are up to in there without registration.

  10. Cardcrusher’s note: I can’t help but notice that your email (charicechaster17@*****DOTcom) is the same handle name of the Charice fan that vandalized the page here. With that in mind and considering your off topic (& numerous) replies, this will be your last chance to comment here if you’re unable to address the issues raised. Your behavior is descpicable and you should be ashamed of yourself.

    I am extremely happy that Charice’s fans are growing each day. That’s the power of Charice for life. People will love her no matter what happens because she has the gift – and it’s her voice! I never thought that I would become addicted to this girl. She has the most gorgeous tone that I have ever heard in my life. I was instantly amazed when I heard her voice. I always adore her everyday of my life. She has the power to make people cry. She gives me goosebumps all the time!

    I can’t wait for her album to come out on May 11, 2010. I believe she will be on Oprah on May 11 as well. Oh my gosh..what can i ask for? She’s truly amazing with her soaring 10 decibel voice. I always listen to her on youtube everyday. I am wondering why i have become addicted to this girl. It has not happened in my life before.

    Charice, you will always be in my heart forever. I will always be there for you as your fan for life. I can’t wait what’s next for you. Good luck, Charice..I am one of your million fans who supports you all the way!

  11. Cardcrusher’s note: I warned you a couple of times. You should have listened. You also failed to keep in mind the warning on the bottom of the blog entry here

  12. I don’t really like her. There’s something weird about her. I don’t like the way she moves. Does she even know herself or does she know what’s going on? I hope some of her fans will behave.

    • Ditto on her fans. With them being so oversensitive, so fanatical, and unable to take criticism, Charice is bound to pick up a few haters and non fans with the way her fans behave..

      Do you find Charice to be too exaggerated when she sings/moves?

      • Exactly. Some of her fans are oversensitive. That’s why she got some haters because of her weird moves. She’s like insensitive to other people when she performs. She doesn’t think what other people might think about her moves. She needs to behave like a woman or lady. She has to bear in mind that she’s a woman, not a girl anymore.

        • It is weird that David Foster who took her touring all over the place hasn’t addressed the overacting issue.

  13. hmmm mr cardcrush…. u know people like u dont understand everthing in you life,,, so plz look first in a mirror before judging the fans of charice…. beside you dont get attention to us ,,,, no body listen to your stupid dialog…. thx.. hmmm mr cardcrush…. u know people like u dont understand everthing in you life,,, so plz look first in a mirror before judging the fans of charice…. beside you dont get attention to us ,,,, no body listen to your stupid dialog…. thx..

    • Nobody pays attention to what I write? Well, you paid enough attention to write a reply. That sure nullifies your point.

  14. and for those people say something bad.. lord will punish you in vain…. so be carefull what u says….. thx again

    • You’re assuming that gods exist and they give a damn………

  15. At AATheory; CardTheRetardCrusher have stooped to such low levels in hating Charice success. He’s now spending his sad life in his moms basement trying hard to convince everyone that Charice will never make it because of his theories/observation that only himself notices. (roflmao you made me LOL hard) hes now obssesed in searching the web of anyting related to Charice to create some noise about CardTheRetardCrasher hatred and wishes that he has supporters that actually believes him, heck why not make your own clone. I have proof that he searches the web in his moms basement working his 40 years old ass off creating negative post to create a false impression that he has a point to make that he need to change how people likes someone, its sad because his obsession in hating doesnt get him any fans.

    OK THERE I FIXED IT FOR YOU.

    ROFLCOPTER YOU MADE ME LOL HARD FOREAL LA
    oh btw nice blog, NOT, just kidding, but seriously lmao. Get a life la, find a job do something that actually will make you a better human being get out of your moms basement you 40 year old retard lol. Ok bye, will block this site upon submitting this. THANKS FOR THE LAUGH> ROFLCOPTERLMAO.

    • Notice how you didn’t even address the deception done by Charice fans. You have nothing to offer but speculations and denial while I present the truth and concrete proof of the wrongdoings of others. So who’s the retard now?

      Damn, fans of Charice are such classless barbarians. No wonder so many of you have a bad reputation. I’ll be watching on the sidelines as the ugly behavior of Charice’s fans contribute to her demise.

  16. Indeed interesting story u have here. It’d be really cool to read more about this theme. Thank you for sharing that info.

  17. That is some generalization you have there cardcrusher… “Charice fans”…as in ALL Charice fans!? Really now.
    I was reading all your comments and I actually find your writing..rebuttal that is, very impressive. If only you were a fan 🙂 I can only imagine how you would take down her haters! Charice would have loved somebody like you on her side.
    You should read the comments from those hardcore haters, you’d understand the way her fans would defend her. Then again, who started what right?
    That’s the thing though, it’s the artist that are being punished by SOME unruly fans,even though there was a slight chance of haters liking the artist.
    Bottomline, we can say all we want but I’m a fan, you’re obviously not! It’s not rocket science.
    Peace out!

    • Fair enough. I should have written “some fans” instead. The blog entry was written in or near the heat of the moment.

      • Well now that you’ve cooled off.
        I was wondering if you were really going to post the misbehavior that some fans have been accused of. Okay the sock puppetry as you would best put it. If you agree that most artist are guilty of such enthusiasm for their idols (deception is such a heavy description :)) do you really find it necessary to parade it for all the world to see, that of your own?

        • I’ve already posted the proof of some Charice fans’ sock puppetry (and it is deception) and the appalling way it is condoned by their peers. You can follow the links (to both the source of the sock puppetry and the place they’ve vandalized) and look at the screenshots. There’s more to it (IP manipulation, using scripts to vote multiple times, etc), but the recent dropping of Charice’s song on two (??) stations due to people calling/ emailing/ voting from outside the station’s reach takes care of that problem.

          Most fans probably don’t have the enthusiasm and fanaticism to create sock puppets and organize themselves to attack people with views they don’t share. Some Charice fans have gone over the top, and that behavior is no way limited and exclusive to them of course.

          Why do I find it necessary to let the world know about it? To let others know of their evil deeds, and to warn bloggers about the hijackings (figuratively and literally) done by Charice fans.

  18. Well I’m for keeping it real so no argument there. But you should know though that Charice and her “real” fans don’t condone the act.

    • I acknowledge that there’s a portion of Charice fans who don’t condone the sock puppetry.

  19. This is just about the moves comment:

    I personally think they’re great! The girl has great rhythm! I dont know what you guys see…do you guys want her to “copycat” the moves you see on wowowee, ASAP, etc. That is just her style!

    anyway I think she’s still great, even if it’s at the risk of being labeled barbaric (which I dont think I am….) yeay Charice! My favorite songs on the new album are Reset, All I Need to Survive, Nobody’s Listenting to Me, and of course Pyramid. just fyi. hehe..

  20. You know what, it just hit me, what was bothering me so much….on the same token that Charice fans are out of control, so are the anti-Charice comments that counter the fans….so much hatred…why can’t we just enjoy the music, and if you don’t enjoy the music, turn down the dislike a notch.

    hmmm…I wonder if it is this dramatic with the Wonder Girls as they are trying to enter the scene….just wondrin’

    • Some Charice fans just can’t handle opinions that they don’t agree with. Both anti and pro Charice factions share the burden of blame.

      I don’t agree with some Charice critics who criticize her for her looks or being “mayabang” ( I disagree strongly with them).

      On the other hand, Charice fans really don’t do Charice any favor by responding in a very uncivilized manner to those who don’t like or even give a damn about her. You can see for yourself online how Charice fans act.

      • hmmm…one of the reasons why I got more involved in tracking Charice and her success (besides the fact that she is so damn entertaining) is because I was getting angry that my local top 40 radio station was not playing her (my error was to directly go to the race card. i can’t speak for all minorities, but for me it does cross my mind whenever an unexplainable roadblock comes along) I didnt understand why they weren’t playing her when she had a lot of strong supporters…a pretty good single, and a great amount of talent. So I finally decided to do research, googled it, and yes, I found out that an ‘important” radio station in my area dropped her from their list because of the indundation of phone calls and spam mail (yes sock puppets)….well at least I know why… that answers my question.

  21. btw, the critics you speak of aren’t “critics” they’re “haters”. At this point, I believe (and what I believe is so important!) that you are an actual critic, criticizing the work for what I feel are your actual views.

  22. I wouldn’t argue with you on some stated facts you have mentioned about Charice in general because like you, I have experienced the same actions from her fans in which I believe is disrespectful on what so-called freedom of expression that we’re entitled of , One thing I have noticed is how defensive her fans about criticisms without looking the benefits it might give to her, for a better image, for instance, charice’s ways of being (“mayabang”) answering interviews here in Philippines, as if she’s the best voice ever existed on earth beating likes of Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston in exchanging thoughts. in this case.

    • Charice is still humble. I saw some of her interviews and she said that she has learned many things from Ellen and Oprah. Charice said that the thing she learned from Ellen is to stay humble. Charice said that she learned from Oprah is to keep her feet on the ground even she’s wearing nice shoes. I know many haters out there who want to bring her down. But Charice is still humble because of her upbringing. Her mother reminded her and carl that despite they have something they would remain the same as being blessed people who know what humility is.

    • Just make sure you are not confusing confident with mayabang.

  23. I totally agree with this topic. I hate to say this but Charice’s diehard fans are gonna be the ones to bring her down. Lets face it she is not anywhere near Pop Princess status yet but they are always claiming she beat this she’s better than that, and mainstream artists that have actually proven records. Who are we kidding? Charice has a publicist that can control the media but she can only do so much for her. that alone will not help if other nationalities does not accept her. I bought her album and Pyramid has to be the best track but i just cant seem to think that Filipinos actually appreciate her new songs but they put her up there before God. She looks like an ASIAN artist no joke! The cover looks horrible. Better if they dont publicize her because she sure sticks out from the rest of the artists out there right now because she doesnt look like a star! Sorry guys…but hey I supported and bought her album 🙂

    • I don’t understand why other people are bitter to her. She didn’t do anything wrong in her life. All she knows is to be herself being humble. Despite of criticism she ignores it. I’ve been following what she’s doing. She didn’t admit that she’s a pop princess, it was the new york post or new york times who called her as a pop princess so I hope you don’t put the blame on her. By saying putting her before God is no basis. Of course God above all and no one is claiming that she’s first before God unless someone is an atheist. Of course she looks like an Asian artist because she’s Asian. Isn’t obvious? There’s nothing wrong if she’s Asian. But it’s wrong to criticize someone because she’s Asian. I hope we’re not racist here. I hope people will have fair judgment. Some people even haters feed their ego and I don’t know what they get in return. She doesn’t look like a star for what reason? If we’re all blind and listen to all artists who will sound like a star? For others she’s a star because she sings from the heart. We know there are many artists out there who are stars but not actually stars because they’re popular doesn’t mean they’re talented. Charice is talented. It just happened that she’s Asian. In Music it’s not all about race. If we use our hearts and minds maybe we can have fair judgement and not being to harsh to others. It’s sad world why would they criticize of bash her really really bad. Does she deserve to sing or what? Let it be where her road takes her. Enough is enough. Can’t we be a little bit sensitive to others? Love yourself and love others who don’t harm you.

  24. She has learned many things from others especially from the most influential people like Ellen, Oprah, David Foster. She knows what humility is.

    She keeps herself humble what she learned from Ellen. She keeps her feet on the ground even she’s wearing nice shoes and it’s always on her mind. She’s telling other aspiring artists to keep humble and be patient and it will come if it’s for you. Charice is a humble person. For the record she’s not like other bad artists out there who got attitude. Come on guys be understanding and compassionate to others who don’t harm you.

    Remember that haters can’t bring her down no matter what because she knows where she’s going. She knows what humility is. She even said that it’s okay for her even she’s not going to be big. That’s a real artist who is humble. She doesn’t aspire to be that big. SHe’s just contented what she will be. People don’t think too much..don’t worry too much about her she’s just happy what she is.

    Just remember her song “Note to God” as it says “I’d ask for all the hate to be swept away for love to overflow…” I am just happy for her that she made it this far. I am just sad that people are criticizing too much by showing their insecurity, jealousy, hatred. She’s just a girl who happened to be Asian and doing her thing to bring food on the table.

    Guys, you know who you are and what’s in your heart. It’s time to be compassionate, to be humble. Be understanding and don’t worry too much about her.

  25. why bother having this site of yours just to pin down
    someone , what is really your motive?
    are you riding her fame ?
    youre not jealous neither hate her you just want attention on this site of yours if only i had the power to shut this annoying site ill do. so ill just say ts to you sana kunin kna ni lord hahahahahahahahhaaha…………

  26. I been reading most of the comments written here and my feelings or should i say my reaction is mix, i feel glad that people are actually sharing their opinions, i feel sad because some words are really unnecessary but still saying it anyway, just to be heard or just to hurt someone? i don’t know,

    Well i will share my experience regarding the topic of this blog.

    Mr. or Ms. Cardcrusher, i humbly look up to your idea of “charice fans leading deception” however, i would suggest if I may, which I am doing it now, please change the title of your blog to “SOME charice fans leading deception” I am a charice fan, genuine fan, so therefore I would not be included to your fight, I am a charice fan because i do like her voice, her spirit, her courage, her bravery, her goal to survive and be heard, no matter what obstacle she may be.

    I agree with you, some charice fans are really over the top for being sensitive and over protective, but then who would not want to protect their idol? who would not be hurt hearing terrible words throwing at the person that became their inspiration?

    The sock puppetry as you have put it is nothing i have heard of, my apology, i am not a computer geek as obvious like you, it could really hurt her i agree.

    But not to the extent of creating a blog that encourage her haters to be more brutal. Your blog is undeniably causing hate and consequently pain, it didn’t give any justice to your agenda of “fighting deception”.

    This will be my first and my last visit here, i did not extract any positive views from your blog.

    Ceating a blog is something which I consider as privilage to people who can afford it, like you cardcrusher, write something meaningful, something that can contribute to be productive, and useful. Even a porn blog, it gives pleasure to soebody at least (well thats too pathetic) but we cannot deny that.

    Your blog is useless, it will just create an army of puppet to come and visit you here and write things that will give you negative outlook in life. Also to someone who will visit here and read the comments that will lead to “deception” they might think asian and charice herself is not worthy of their hard earned success.

    • Well said Chris. This is a mark of a true gentlemen. Many people seem to not care about the implications and responsibility of “freedom of speech”. This blog is just one of the many examples of how this can be violated.

  27. Can someone explain why Charice is now #151 on the charts in a matter of 5 weeks? She has so much exposure? Is the mainstream not buying the record? Maybe it is a failure. She will always have Filipino supporters but to be under that much hype under a “Major Label” she should have succeeded even more but I guess it really was just us buying her.

  28. Every truth passes through three stages before it is recognized. In the first it is ridiculed, in the second it is opposed, in the third it is regarded as self-evident.

    – Arthur Schopenhauer

  29. ….(clearing throat)…actually it’s #156 and not #151 as of present time.

    …you made me curious and so you made me look..(shrug)….

  30. sorry #156 so even worse!! what do you think is going on? is mainstream really not buying her? we cant say that Reprise is not doing a good job promoting her because they really are behind her

    i dont think shes on the itunes chart either but not sure

  31. …(rubbing eyes)….my bad….actually it’s #162 as of present time….

  32. After 5 weeks and on last week’s position at #81, and now on the list in the ‘Biggest Fall’ in the charts @ #162, it certainly does not seem to bode well at all.

    Disillusion is a natural stage that follows the holding of an illusion.

  33. Do even have a day job? Is this all you do? Dude you are simply pitiful. That very hate will kill you man. You might as well join the KKK, they talk like you, think like you, who knows look like you!

  34. What’s to hate??!! The TRUTH supported by FACT?!!!!
    What about the TRUTH? You CAN’T handle it?!
    It’s not hard to find, it’s on BILLBOARD.COM, and where have you been looking,the FOG through your eye? No wonder you’ve been asking the KKK for information, wrong source DUDE!!

    I don’t give them hell. I just tell the truth and they think it is hell.

    • Am just curious. Yes it is fact that the album chartings slipped lower and lower without even peaking at No. 1 except for the Dance Club Play Songs Charts. It is also fact the she is the first Solo Asian to debut on Top 10 Billboard 200. Should’t that be a reason to celebrate instead of celebrating about the fall off the charts?

      Truth hurts, it is true, especially when you shove it in the face. That is how comments here strike me. And it does not sound like stating facts, it is more of something like “I TOLD YOU” statement.

  35. #162? no I think 173 this week…but maybe it will move up because of her Glee publicity. Geez..that just proved the power of having Oprah and David Foster having your back, even if you dont deserve to be on the #1 TV show in America, they can make it happen for you even if you have no acting background (And please people dont refer to her MMK special as acting experience!), do you know how many good actors could have landed that role? I personally hate Glee but im actually a bit more embarassed to watch her on Glee because I really dont feel that she fits in. I hope she doesnt try to moonwalk there lol! And Chasters, please dont think that she is gonna be the star of that show because Lea still carries that show!! Lea is a Les Mis star so i see a bunch of Lea criticisms already from Charice’s fans..I feel kinda bad for them because they seem so insecure of other mainstream artists (singers & now actors)

    she’ll need a few more #1 hits, albums, grammys for you guys to claim that status, but shes one lucky girl!! I still bought her album 🙂 to show support for Filipinos

  36. CARDCRUSHER’S NOTE: The poster failed to follow the warning on the bottom of this blog entry. Stop the baseless accusations and speculations. Addressing the topic of the blog entry would also make your reply not appear out of place. No comment about sock puppetry? How convenient.

  37. LOL here comes the parade! I bet that was one of ’em bullet-eating chasters, possible sock puppets trying Sarah’s last comment out, sorry Sarah I was waiting for them to take you out with AN IOTA of something intelligent to say. So let me give ’em a REALITY CHECK to BITE into, I’m sure this will leave them FUMING in their INARTICULATE STUPOR so you, I and the rest of us (level-headed NON-fans) can ENJOY our day! (No worries, this didn’t take me long to do, I just had to copy and paste it…lol)

    I’m not into Glee either, I simply have no opinion of it except to keep moving onto something better. Honestly, Lea Salonga has MADE history with Miss Saigon by being the ONLY actor in both Broadway and the West End theater by winning herself a TONY and an OLIVIER for the SAME ROLE, which remains uncontested and unrivalled, NOW THAT IS A REAL MARK IN FINER THEATER HISTORY!! (There is a distinction between theater and cinema/tv.)

    Sure oprah has the ability to BUY her way into anything or anyone, and Glee is so unreal in the first place. MAYBE it’s exactly just like you said, it could be really just such a WRONG fit! But they have got to do something to pull that nosediving ALBUM OF HERS THAT’S IN DIRE STRAITS and it’s NO SURPRISE they’d go there, there’s talk too of dragging Justin Bieber to be in the same show with her so she can share the photo/video opp. with him (thus qualifying that FEMALE BIEBER claim of their’s further I’m sure). Hey, anything to SAVE A SINKING SHIP, we have got to give them props for the effort!

    I know Lea Salonga, and I’ll tell you why?! That’s because she’s someone I can RESPECT!! You want to sell someone’s music/acting to me/mainstream? You want me to buy into it?! Show me someone I can respect! She made the smart decision of dedicating herself to theater and making a mark in history and she’s GREAT for doing that!

    So, you (bully fans/chasters) DON”T need me and the rest of mainstream to buy, well that’s VERY COOL. And maybe you’re not even wondering why she’s slipping down the Charts (she’s disappeared in iTunes completely!) because you TRULY AND HONESTLY think that you can just push over anybody, INSULT and BULLY anyone who doesn’t agree with you (the bully fans)! JUST BECAUSE YOU’RE TRIPPING THAT WAY! And you really BELIEVE that she will just magically float to the TOP because she has the likes of oprah to buy her way into anything….hmmmmm!

    Ever think you may be doing her a great disservice when you show your TRUE obnoxious INCAPABLE natures? Of course, YOU (bully fans) ARE ALL the reasons WHY I have deleted all her songs/older album in my music library! You expect me for present/future support?! There’s NO hate here, just a DOSE of REALITY and a re-direction of my taste and preference, THANKS TO ALL OF YOUR help!

    Let’s get some REALITY CHECK: Bieber is #7 on his 13th week and charice’s at #173 on her 8th week (www.billboard.com), so, hey who fell off the rocker?! I just have one more question, JUST HOW DELUSIONAL CAN YOU (chaster/fan) GET?!

    Discussing charice’ present/future career is as ear-splitting (READ:needing ear-plugs) and TIRESOME as her singing (my opinion counts since I am one of the unimpressed mainstream). I think I’ll remain UNIMPRESSED even if she snags the female lead in a reprise of Miss Saigon and Les Mis and gets a Tony and Olivier. Oh I know, it’s probably because SOMEONE ELSE HAS DONE IT ALREADY!

    Well, MAYBE it’ll be REALLY something, if she gets tons of grammy and MTV, #1 albums, and other awards etc., but by that time she’d had STOPPED being new and cute , and the WHOLE THING would be OLD and TIRED by then already (someone else new & cute will have come along; and that happens REALLY FAST in the business she got herself into)!

    Let’s consider the real FACT : (see http://www.billboard.com #173 currently at week 8): that CHARICE’S FIRST ALBUM FAILED TO SECURE HER A NICHE ANYWHERE IN THE MAINSTREAM!

    Ever tried to climb Mt. Everest from the K2 side!?!

    SO she WOULD HAVE TO take some whole new act (or several) just to keep selling because really THAT’S ALL THERE IS TO KEEP GOING (and they’ll really have to try something! ANYTHING!) (YAWN) IS THIS REAL ENOUGH FOR YOU!?!?!

    Sure STAY around for all that and ENJOY IT (all the marketing drool THEY FEED YOU, and that you’re SO DESPERATE to BELIEVE!!), and take a breather once in awhile, YOU’LL NEED IT!

    C’mon this is after all NOT A ROCKET SCIENCE! So you all hang-in there and YOU FIGURE the rest out for yourselves.

    And don’t give me that poor dribble about hate, coz you should HEAR some of you talk, and you should be checking the carbon-monoxide alarm with the fume coming out of your nose and ears by now! Truth is a hard pill to swallow!

    Anyone who DISAGREES and has anything less than intelligent discourse to say are simply showing signs of desperation to compensate for lack of the ability to articulate! Qu’est-ce que?……Go ahead and talk to Robin(Williams), Bob (Marley) and Sarah (Silverman) below, for anything inarticulate you’ve got to say, they’ve covered everything ELSE!!

    • You struck me as a LEARNED individual. You write very well. I want to read something positive from you. So far, I have not.

      • I suggest you read the other non Charice related blog entires. Just look around this blog. It’s not hard.

        • Well, cardcrusher, it’s quite evident that most who have TRIED to challenge my views which is always supported by facts (insulting fans, those acting confused etc.) thus far is either under severe denial or self-imposed DELUSION. I’ve seen how they’ve tried to hold on to their ‘ideas’, so I’ll let THEM… ( and this his my favorite!)

          …STAY around for all that (charice’s ‘career’) and ENJOY IT (all the marketing drool THEY FEED THEM and that THEY’RE SO DESPERATE to BELIEVE!!), and take a breather once in awhile, THEY’LL NEED IT!

        • They’re free to have their own ideas, but they’re really not doing themselves any favor by shooting the messenger or the person who they don’t agree with. It’s downright hilarious to observe their intolerance.

        • EXACTLY MY POINT.

          It’s not hard to dig deeper into some facts about Charice which will not need to be negative about. Since you have shown interest in writing something about her, she deserves fair treatment didn’t she.

          I did not read all your blogs because, I did not even try because I am focused on your negative comments about Charice, not just here, but everywhere. It’s because that is all my mind wanted to see. If I tried harder I would have known that you also write other things than that are not negative. I should have given you the benefit of the doubt.

          If I did not judge you right away, I would have not been wrong about you.

          Hope you see my point.

        • Regarding the “fair” treatment, I don’t go into a direction that would criticize her due to her looks or personal background. I keep it about the music and the figures (sales, charts, etc). Suffice to say, I’ve been “fair” when criticizing Charice.

          The same cannot be said for some Charice fans like Berto who recently dropped by.

      • I appreciate your confusion, but WHICH PART OF THE TRANSLATION WERE YOU MISSING?

        • oh sorry, it was honest mistake, I was trying to delete it but could not. I really thought it was my user name. Please delete it for me. I did not try to be someone I am not.

  38. Since you have posted some comments on this blog, I think it’s fair if you post comments in this blog too.

    Do you remember CGP?

    • I’ll be back to that blog, and I haven’t forgotten about it. I’m just letting the fools there enjoy their false “victory”, and you’ve got to admit that their “celebration” there is a little pathetic in light of Charice’s single flopping and her single sinking to the bottom.

      It’s actually hilarious that one person responded with credentialism. My opinion must have hit something deep down that person to respond in such a way.

      • why not come back there when it would hurt much worse to know that they did not really win? why wait?

        Of course, only someone with credentials can do that to you because for all the comments against you, you always have something manipulative to say.

        You are learned, it takes someone as learned as him to pin you down, of course you will not admit you are pinned down.

        • Pinned down? The credentialism card pulled by that person actually helps to validate my point about Charice and her fans.

  39. bow bow clap clap. we have to accept reality folks! “luck” is the key word here and I know the industry is always based on luck but longevity is based on true/natural talent, true charisma, the IT factor how much universal appeal an artist has…which im sorry to say Charice doesnt have.

    oh by the way, i also heard that Charice was dropped from a lot of major radio stations IE: LA’s KIIS because her “chasters” kept calling the stations, bombarding them with thousands of unsolicited emails and even the # 1 record in the country never got that much attention (Usher, Justin B, BOB). They would call even if they’re in the Philippines LOL which made them realize this is not a real “hit” the “public” not just Filipinos, want to hear. Everything is forced for this girl but I sure hope she enjoys every bit of it because Im really not sure if it will be around tomorrow, next month, year, decade.

    But you never know Oprah & David has a lot of money to throw away, maybe she wants to prove herself and not take back what she said about this girl making it big.

    Go chasters!!

    • I just hope that her Filipino fans realize how their overzealousness in promoting and defending her is actually hurting Charice.

      • I hope you realize too that you are hurting Charice too.

  40. oh nicht..by the way, I was referring to Lea Michelle of Glee LOL but yes Lea S. has proven herself I mean a Tony Award is NO JOKE people plus she was also signed to Atlantic records and charted on Billboard had big time producers behind her (Glen Ballard) but of course she didnt have LeaSters and youtube back then to capitalize on her hype but I believe Lea has true fans not like Charice where her fans are just in it because she is so called “Mainstream” now but watch, when she’s gone, theyre gonna start saying all types of comments like “well her mom was this, well she didnt look this way, oh its because she’s asian” etc..

    True fans are supposed to be there till the end whether they succeed or fail!

    Whats the word…her fans are nakikiride lang!!

    • I’ve been wondering the same thing about the fans of Charice’ (or Pacquiao for the matter). IDK they’ll be around once the limelight moves on. Will they be around when Charice goes the indie route or when Pacquiao hangs up his gloves?

  41. i think the 2 million youtube charice video viewers should buy her album again to make her go back up the charts…what do you think?

    if she has millions of youtube views (they claim), do you think the however many millions of those viewers actually bought the album? She couldve still have been in the top 10 on Billboard if they did.

    just wondering because Filipinos have a habit of not really supporting when it comes to laying out money, free? yes we’ll support all the way, online polls yes we’re there and vote and vote and vote, but buy concert tickets? or album? we have no money then they disappear but we’re still cheering for the artist!!

    • YOU SAID IT Sarah! A lot of hot air, but they don’t put their money where their mouth is! “If you got a winning horse like you SWEAR IT IS, BET ON IT!”

      Got a quick question, is 2 mil youtube viewers actually 2 million individual separate hits or is that collective 2 million hits INCLUDING replays? I mean I just have to ask basically because I’m just curious; as it is I prefer FACTS & STATS.

      Because it actually SEEMS the 2 million YOUTUBE viewers DID NOT positively impact her current position in the charts where she’s at (#173) which covers actual sales gains and airplay of the album, THE NUMBERS DON’T COMPUTE. Unfortunately, like you said, some of the airplay was impacted with pull-outs by overzealous fan activity.

      For the numbers TO COMPUTE, why don’t they (chasters/fans) just buy 10 ALBUMS EACH DAY! (then they can materialize the 2 million Youtube viewers they claim), maybe then her album can do a magic ressurection and jump up at the coveted spots in the charts. OTHERWISE, everytime they yell HATER at non-fans, and they just watch CHARICE’s ALBUM NOSEDIVE, or SWEAR nobody can really come near her (talent) etc….it’s REALLY ALL JUST HOT AIR!

      After all, the caveat (def. the burden) to prove that there’s really millions and billions or (youtube viewers/fans) infinite proportions, of her HUGE MARKET ACCEPTANCE, is on her fans. The MARKET RESULTS from the current chart position (which is almost the base bottom) SAY THE EXTREME OPPOSITE!

      Blog comments, online polls are NEVER the basis of album sales gains & chart positions, for the reason that just because you wrote a STUNNING comment , HIGH PRAISES etc.(or insults to non-fans) you CONVERSELY bought an album with EACH COMMENT that you post, that’s why it’s ALL JUST HOT AIR!!! To counter that, you simply have to PUT THE MONEY WHERE YOUR MOUTH IS!! BUY 10 A DAY!

    • Asian Americans have a habit of not supporting their own. I still can’t believe that the highest grossing Asian American film of the last decade was seen more overwhelmingly by non Asian Americans.

      As for Charice fans, I’m sure a good portion shelled out money for albums and concerts, but there’s not enough of them. They like to brag about album sales, Youtube views and the “over 6,000” that came to watch Charice in Toronto, but it really appears that there’s little crossover success.

    To ease your mind Clique: I used RHETORICAL ANALYSIS otherwise known as RHETORICAL CRITICISM in a contemporary application.

          If there ever is a very RARE case of any mistaken identity, THIS IS IT! This maybe a demonstrated BIPOLAR eposide, as this is the only way how someone can mistake another USER NAME for their OWN. Such a sad thing to lose one’s OWN IDENTITY so soon!

          BIPOLAR or IQ MELT-DOWN which option is the likely poison? This is SUCH A classic case! PUHLEEZE, let’s get a grip with reality here! Every one who ever posts has PLENTY of time to REVIEW everything BEFORE POSTING the comment (even time to shop and BUY 10 charice ALBUMS then get back before posting!) so this seems a HIGHLY UNLIKELY mistake as purported.

          So, let me get this straight….the excuse is: “…I really thought my user name was nicht.” ~By: Clique

          THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN MAKE A MISTAKE LIKE THAT IS WITH INTENT! So the ONLY exercise LEFT IS, for this excuse be TOLD TO the CAVEMEN! They may NOT BUY IT, BUT perhaps they’ll make party-talk out of it!

          So Clique (or whoever you think you are at this time) if you FIND yourself IGNORED and UNRESPONDED TO, it’s BECAUSE, well sometimes YOU’RE NOT EVEN SURE WHO YOU ARE ANYMORE!

          Nota Bene: If you ressurrect yourself with another name, you do realize that you can only write the way you write, and if your IP address can’t be recognized because you’ll be running off to another internet cafe or wherever; TRUST that your UNORIGINALITY, desperate BREAK with REALITY, and BORINGNESS, as always WILL GIVE YOU AWAY!

        • thanks for the language lesson, but I don’t need them. It was reallly an honest mistake believe it or not.

  43. reply to Sarah

    She will eventually win Grammy’s, who knows she wins Best New Artist Next Year, if not, there is still year after next year.

    I find it rather weird documenting the slip of her album on the charts. Obviously you are not fond of her. Others would document her achievements because that is a normal thing to do, but to monitor her fall is a sick thing and not only that, you see to enjoy it. I hope you also document when she goes up the chart or she does something great, that would be fair.

  44. YAY Charice moved up to 139!! Thanks to the glee buzz! But is it still Filipinos just buying her record? Thoughts on her Inauguration performance? Just my opinion, a bit mediocre but im glad she didnt attempt to belt to make it really annoying.

    • The buzz from Glee definitely helped. There might even be a few more of non Filipino background who bought it due to the buzz.

      • Billboard charts include not just album sales but also air play. If you look at the fine print with the asterisk, if an album jumps from position to another, it’s marked with an asterisk:
        i.e.139** Titles with the greatest airplay and sales gains this week.

        http://www.billboard.com/charts/billboard-200?tag=chscr1#/charts/billboard-200?begin=121&order=position

        It does not necessarily mean a direct increase of album sales, the first thing it mentions is greatest airplay, could be just some folks putting in more effort in requesting. A certain few have been known to be dedicated in that area. For instance, see below:

        http://www.charicemania.com/2010/04/12/announcements/reminder-back-off-radio-requests/
        _____________________________________________
        Just want to remind chasters to follow radio etiquette rule No. 1 as posted in the Radio Campaign article: “Never ever call a radio station out of your listening area. It will look fake or forced to the radio station and it will do more harm than good.
        It must, organically, look like a hit.” This is good advice we received directly from Charice’s manager, Marc Johnston, and some feedback we got recently from one music director seems to back it up.
        With request links being posted in the CM Chatbox to radio stations all over the country, chasters have as usual been very supportive of our Charice in responding to these calls for action. However, the Music Director from KISS 106.1FM Seattle took the time to send this reply to an out-of-state chaster. Thx to Norleans, from Louisiana, for sharing this …

        Tell the message boards to request their local stations only please (emphasis added). We aren’t counting any Charice requests and you guys are hurting more than helping her. Every radio station we talk to around the country is doing the same thing. Friendly advice.”
—kissfmseattle.

        Radio Request Etiquette: Please Read
        Ok, I know you can hardly wait to start calling & emailing but FIRST we need to go over a few rules:
        1. Never ever call a radio station out of your listening area. It will look fake or forced to the radio station and it will do more harm than good . It must, organically, look like a hit.

        2. Please be aware that the station may not be able to get to your request right away but they do make note of requests and requests will certainly impact the station’s playlist.

        3. It’s not a good idea to call the DJs too much or spam their in-box. That could really work against us, so just one call/email a day will be enough… ok, maybe two, like a friendly reminder “hey how come you haven’t played my song yet?” Don’t be obnoxious please, you know what I mean, I hope.

        4. If the stations in your area are already playing Charice’s Pyramid, call the DJs anyway, e-mail and let them know how much you appreciate them, how much you LOVE the song.

        • Thanks for the tidbit about her Billboard 200 position this week. It’s interesting that airplay increased this week as well. I thought that “Pyramid” is already dead, buried, and forgotten.

        • Airplay is also subjected to marketing investments by record companies, basically that means that they can put money in to increase promotions/airplay on an album or a single that find it needs to do so to further push it. Some radio promotions are considered bogus because of it, a few too obvious , that some stations get the flak in their emails from the public for it.

          Club plays can also be paid for increased DJ plays, it doesn’t mean the party crowd actually asked for it. Now how do I know this? LOL shall we say reliable sources.

          For one thing, I’m not so focused on charts alone. At this time here in NA, I can tell you there’s NO magazine covers (we are talking about charise), NO marketing items such as (T-shirts, notebook covers, collectibles etc). There’s NO visibility of such nature. I don’t mean to harp on Bieber, but he’s on TEEN MAG covers almost every week, he also has his own TV show every week on Sats; Miley Cyrus hosted the recent MMVA awards (that’s a lot of visibility)and she’s in mags all the time, course she’s got her videos too; Nikki Yannofsky modelled a recent spring collection in a mag, did a cover in another, she’ll be the youngest playing solo artist at the NICE (France) Jazz Festival at 16 and the list GOES ON, (I think I’m running out of space for Taylor Swift too).

          So they not only do guest appearances etc. because everyone does that, but they have marketing exposures that mainstream is lapping up. For sure, mainstream is a consumerist culture, and Bieber, Cyrus, and the rest HAVE THE STUFF that is being “CONSUMED” by the mainstream. Not to mention repeated video plays on MTV, MMV, MOD. It’s NOT JUST ALL AIR PLAY’S EITHER that make it to the mainstream recall.

          What the charice official site harped on was a quipped review on People Magazine, which I’m sure everyone is familiar with, but let me run it again, but try to read it again and this time without bias and see what it really means (it will be in all caps so it won’t be missed):

          People Magazine Album Review 05/24/10
          IF EVER ONE COULD MAKE AN ALBUM, THEN IT MABE THE VERY LAST ONE Charice – the YouTube phenom who just made her fourth appearance on Oprah – HITS on her self-titled debut. Her big moment comes down on the Diane Warren ballad “Note to God,” which finds the 18-year-old Filipina reaching for the heavens, backed by a gospel choir. A powerful performance, it’s the stuff of a young Celine Dion, Whitney or Mariah. But Charice is TORN BETWEEN BEING A BEGOWNED DIVA AND ACTING HER AGE on songs like the Iyaz-assisted single “Pyramid,” which SOUNDS MORE LIKE SOMETHING OFF a Jordin Sparks CD.

          Charice will be featured on People Magazine May 24, 2010 issue. Get your copies Chasters!http://www.charicemania.com/2010/05/13/news/charice-people-magazine-album-review-052410/#more-21329

          I’m not sure how this was translated, but this is by no means a positive review, this is what you call a HO-HUM review. It was given a 2 out of 4. If anything this points out that the album has not successfully found a niched category (r&b, pop, hip-hop, etc) and it’s something that’s been heard of before (by the mainstream).

          Also, this was the only mag appearance/mention ever, if AT ALL. It’s just something you also should be aware of before you all start harping about WHO’S MORE TALENTED THAN WHOM (which really you shouldn’t do, it makes anyone who does it really look NAIVE, it’s not the ONLY thing that counts for any long term success, and you all know the precedent examples show it.)

          You see, IT’S NOT JUST ALL ABOUT THE TALENT that makes the difference! If you want to compete this is the competition arena, if you think you can bring it, do it. But talent IS JUST ONE THING! Question is, does your girl HAVE anything else in the bag, because your girl will be asked for it.

          Is there A POSSIBILITY for success with your girl? SURE, as there is an equal POSSIBILITY for her NOT to succeed in view of what she’s up against ! Oprah & Foster ain’t god (with all the references to them I keep reading i.e. but she’s got oprah & foster etc.) and they can’t really guarantee anything, no one can in that business. Sure, they can give you ‘promises’, they can always do that, and you can always believe it. (Reality checks sometimes may be nice too once in awhile too.)

          In fact, I say Raymond Usher is doing a helluva job marketing Bieber, why don’t y’all hire him instead for your girl?! Because if he can do a genius marketing for Bieber with what you say “lesser vocals” than your girl, maybe he can help her out.

        • Nicht. you might not be focused on charts, but the important charts (Hot 100 and BB200) are useful in engaging Chasters. They don’t respond well to opinions not in favor of the copycat, and pointing out the major charts is a very useful way to point to them that mainstream America is not getting on the Charice bandwagon.

          I agree with you that she has little to no mainstream buzz at the moment with the exception of the Glee casting (and that’s limited to who pays attention to the show or TV stuff in general).

          Re: Charice on published media
          US Weekly also covered Charice last May
          http://www.charicemania.com/2009/05/29/news/usa/charice-in-us-weekly/

          The online version of the LA Times also reviewed her album, giving it a 2 out of 4. Check out the hilarious responses of Chasters that can’t handle what the reviewer has to say.

        • Addendum:
          She has one recent interview with Verve mag while she was in Toronto (June 11), which was released right next to a Miley Cyrus article and an article on the MMVA that Cyrus hosted where you get to see a photo of Bieber and an MMVA (June 25) photo of Cyrus and other celebs (no fan of Cyrus and Bieber either, but that’s what they’ve got). They have got to WORK ON the regular covers etc. Mainstream recall is so short, there’s just too much competition.

          Video plays on Yahoo (that’s internet, not quite MTV and the other franchises it has to get there too), and let’s see how long it stays there, it has to stay longer than a debut period.

          It’s a longs ways to go just yet.

  45. best new artist? yikes..a bit ambitious dont you think?

    • it is ambitious, but there is nothing wrong being ambitious is there? And despite the fact that she climbed a few notches back you still have negative comments about it, well I do not wonder why, you are full of negativity. I hope you learn to see things in a positive view once in a while, it is not ambitious it is but right.

  46. not being negative just being realistic. but not sure if her fans know what that means, being realistic they think it is a negative thing. Fact is not negative, simply fact.

    but again her fans are quite defensive about every little thing. but hey i still bought her album 🙂 to support just not a fan, its as simple as that.

    i laid my money out, did you?

    • First of all Sarah, i don’t think you have to explain yourself for being realistic, it’s quite evident they’re ON A FULL BLOWN REALITY CRASH ( it’s them not you or I), they’ll try to drag us and one such CAN’T EVEN BE ORIGINAL, for instance Clique is using a Maya Angelou quote ( who’s a writer whose books, centered on themes such as identity, family, and racism), I bet you he doesn’t even know who she is! Clique will just have to justify how Maya Angelou became a part of non-North American LITERARY CULTURE knowing what she stands for and what the quote originally was intended for! I BET YOU he doesn’t even know the whole chapter from which that quote came from and what it refers to (of course he’s going to DENY THAT!). If it isn’t, Clique IM SURE CAN PROVE IT OTHERWISE, (so SHOW us some proof, I’m sure we’re all curious and expect you to put out).

      First he tried to STEAL my name ~nicht~(swearing it was an honest mistake, which is so UNBELIEVABLE), then he IMITATES my style of writing that use quotes as emphatic endings. What can I say, IMITATION IS THE GREATEST FLATTERY! Then he’ll definitely swear he bought 10 or more albums not to save her but because he really loves to listen to it! Hey each to his own poison, LIKE SURE HE DID !!

      He’s ran out of originality so he’s going to use the cheapest thing he could find, that is to try and GET ON OUR NERVES! I say hey the kid (CLique) is just being defensive and that’s all he wants to be, because that’s ALL HE CAN BE! The short of it is all what he wants us to do is to really stop, because he’s fast running out of ideas that’s all his own, so he’s weasling on what he can find phrases and catch words etc…the poor kid, he knows the devil is in the details but since he’s ON A FULL BLOWN REALITY CRASH, he doesn’t know where the next one is coming, because he can’t see ’em, because he refuses to see ’em.

      The real question is Sarah, did they actually buy more than 1 album each to make the numbers compute? Like REALLY BUY them, not have to depend on honest people like you who actually shelled out REAL money to spend, NOT JUST HOT AIR and CHEAP WORDS!

      • “First of all Sarah, i don’t think you have to explain yourself for being realistic, it’s quite evident they’re ON A FULL BLOWN REALITY CRASH ( it’s them not you or I), they’ll try to drag us and one such CAN’T EVEN BE ORIGINAL, for instance Clique is using a Maya Angelou quote ( who’s a writer whose books, centered on themes such as identity, family, and racism), I bet you he doesn’t even know who she is!

        Nicht, since you are talking about me, I think I need to butt in. I know who Maya Angelou is. Do not assume that if someone does not write as good as you, they do not know what they are talking about. I quoted her to send you a message. If I did not mention her name, am sure you will have something to say about it, as you always do, won’t you? Your comment will be much longer than this am sure. I admit, I do not know the exact source the quote came from, I never hinted I do, I never hinted I know a lot but it makes sense that I know who quoted it and I believe in the message. It makes a lot of sense.

        Does that quote have to be used particularly for the same purpose it was quoted?
        And why is now my quote the subject? Why has my quote triggered this?
        Looks like my message hit you.

        “First he tried to STEAL my name ~nicht~(swearing it was an honest mistake, which is so UNBELIEVABLE), then he IMITATES my style of writing that use quotes as emphatic endings. What can I say, IMITATION IS THE GREATEST FLATTERY! Then he’ll definitely swear he bought 10 or more albums not to save her but because he really loves to listen to it! Hey each to his own poison, LIKE SURE HE DID !!”

        Secondly, you seriously believe, I did that on purpose? Wow. I told you, it was an honest mistake, whether you believe it or not, not my problem anymore. I already apologized. This is the first time I used the name Clique, which after I left a comment, I already forgot it, when I checked the site again, I saw your name, without reading the comment, thinking it was the one I used. You think I would want to associate myself with you?

        This one instance I did it unintentionally, does not render me a copycat. If you read my message, I tried to delete it, but there is no way I could do that. And I apologized, didn’t I?

        I did not steal your infamous name, that is a serious accusation my friend.

        I do not need to insist to you to believe how many I bought, and where I bought it, considering it is not yet available in my place now, and had to order it outside. I hope that is enough proof to you. You want me to show the receipts? And yes buying her album is a must and the most important thing to support her, but it is not the only way to support

        “He’s ran out of originality so he’s going to use the cheapest thing he could find, that is to try and GET ON OUR NERVES! I say hey the kid (CLique) is just being defensive and that’s all he wants to be, because that’s ALL HE CAN BE!

        I did not know that I am getting in your nerves already, and that is cheap to you. You are always assuming that everyone is the same. Some fans may not be able to buy, but they are all support to her.”

        I ran out of originality because I left you a quote which obviously hit you?

        If I really cared about your quotes, I would have researched my ass off and commented on them, but no, I did not because I did not care. Your comments are irrelevant to me. So, when you started quoting quotes, you run out of ideas? LOL.
        Because in my case, I am not. Again, do not assume that what you do, others do it as well.

        And as far as I know, you are not the first one using quotes, which make you a copycat as well.

        One thing I noticed about your comments, you are very particular with personalities, first Charice, then Perez now Maya Angelou. You easily judge them without knowing the facts. You may read a lot about them, but do not assume that what you read is all facts. I am just so thankful that you do not know me personally because I would be your next.

        Finally, since you took time to talk to Sarah about my comment, I was wondering why you did not answer me?

        You do not like Charice being a copy cat, are you doing something to change it? No, you have not even tried, all you do is complain.

    • Sarah “YAY Charice moved up to 139!! Thanks to the glee buzz! But is it still Filipinos just buying her record? Thoughts on her Inauguration performance? Just my opinion, a bit mediocre but im glad she didnt attempt to belt to make it really annoying”

      Where is the reality in your post part from your citation of chart rankings. And this is how you do it. You state facts and then follow it with your assumptions.

      These is all your assumptions, which you stated in an interrogative form to make it look like you are not stating your opinion or rather, more aptly, assumptions.

      This is the same with all your posts.

      You can choose between negative and positive reality. You chose to lean more on negative reality, why is that? What is your motive behind that?

      Mediocre? Has anyone sung the National Anthem the same way that you can compare it with? Based on comments, stating their opinions, it was “flawless” and this came from someone who was near the stage. Were you there? or you are just basing your opinion on what you hear and see on TV or videos. Or you are just basing your so called opinion on your “pre-judgment”.

  47. oops correction,

    Your QUOTES are irrelevant to me. not COMMENTS.

  48. LET ME ANSWER YOU POINT BY POINT. I MAY NOT WRITE AS PROLIFIC AS YOU, BUT I WILL TRY TO EXPLAIN MYSELF AS CLEAR AS POSSIBLE:

    “Just how LAME does this ever sound?
    oh sorry again, I really thought my user name was nicht. ~By: Clique on 06/30/2010
    at 5:08 am

    If there ever is a very RARE case of any mistaken identity, THIS IS IT! This maybe a demonstrated BIPOLAR eposide, as this is the only way how someone can mistake another USER NAME for their OWN. Such a sad thing to lose one’s OWN IDENTITY so soon!
    BIPOLAR or IQ MELT-DOWN which option is the likely poison? This is SUCH A classic case! PUHLEEZE, let’s get a grip with reality here! Every one who ever posts has PLENTY of time to REVIEW everything BEFORE POSTING the comment (even time to shop and BUY 10 charice ALBUMS then get back before posting!) so this seems a HIGHLY UNLIKELY mistake as purported.
    So, let me get this straight….the excuse is: “…I really thought my user name was nicht.” ~By: Clique”

    WHATEVER YOU WANT TO CALL IT, IF IT FEEDS YOUR FANTASY DO IT. MY CONSCIENCE IS CLEAR. AND I DID NOT HURT ANYBODY WITH THAT, DID I?

    NOW, IF I CAUSED HARM IN DOING THAT, I THINK I SHOULD BE PUNISHED. BUT I DON’T THINK I DID. AND IF WANTED TO LOSE MY IDENTITY, FOR GOD’S SAKE NOT WITH YOU. LOL.

    THE ONLY WAY YOU CAN MAKE A MISTAKE LIKE THAT IS WITH INTENT! So the ONLY exercise LEFT IS, for this excuse be TOLD TO the CAVEMEN! They may NOT BUY IT, BUT perhaps they’ll make party-talk out of it!
    So Clique (or whoever you think you are at this time) if you FIND yourself IGNORED and UNRESPONDED TO, it’s BECAUSE, well sometimes YOU’RE NOT EVEN SURE WHO YOU ARE ANYMORE!

    DON’T BUY IT, AS LONG AS I SAID MY APOLOGIES, EVEN IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT IT, NOT MY PROBLEM ANYMORE. IF DWELLING WITH IT MAKES YOU HAPPY, BE MY GUEST. IT WON’T BE MY BURDEN.

    Nota Bene: If you ressurrect yourself with another name, you do realize that you can only write the way you write, and if your IP address can’t be recognized because you’ll be running off to another internet cafe or wherever; TRUST that your UNORIGINALITY, desperate BREAK with REALITY, and BORINGNESS, as always WILL GIVE YOU AWAY!

    WELL, I DON’T INTEND TO RESSURECT MYSELF I DO NOT SEE ANY REASON TO. GRANTING I AM UNORIGINAL, AT LEAST I AM HONEST TO MYSELF. ARE YOU?

    I REALLY THOUGHT I WAS BORING UNTIL YOU STARTED REPLYING TO ME.

    JUST A THOUGHT, WHY CAN’T YOU ANSWER MY QUESTION?

    WHAT CAN YOU SUGGEST TO CHARICE SO THAT ALL YOUR PERCEPTION OF HER WILL CHANGE?

    WHAT HAVE YOU DONE SO FAR TO CONTRIBUTE TO A BETTER WORLD ASIDE FROM PARADING YOUR VAST VOCABULARY AND BOTTOMLESS SOURCE OF QUOTATIONS.

    YOU KEEP ON REPEATING MY MISTAKE WHICH DID NOT EVEN MAKE YOU LESS OF THE PERSON YOU THOUGHT YOU ARE.

    IS THIS HOW YOU DIVERT THE TOPIC WHEN YOU RUN OUT OF ANSWERS. I HOPE NOT, BECAUSE I REALLY THINK YOU ARE SMART AND LEARNED.

    IF I GET ANSWER TO THAT QUESTION, I WILL REST MY CASE.

  49. Pinned down? The credentialism card pulled by that person actually helps to validate my point about Charice and her fans.

    By: cardcrusher on 07/04/20

    NO IT DID NOT.

    IF IT DID, WHY DID YOU NOT TELL HIM AT THAT VERY MOMENT THAT HE VALIDATED YOUR CLAIM ABOUT US FANS? WHY DID YOU LET HIM YOU LOOK “OWNED”? AM SURE HE HAD SOMETHING TO SAY IF YOU DID, WHICH WILL PROVE YOU WRONG AGAIN AND AGAIN.

    WHY WAIT FOR 2 MONTHS?

    • It’s simple. The move presents an opportunity for intolerant fans to bask in the glory of false victory. While they’re celebrating, Charice’s album continues on a course to Flopville. I really ought to thank that person.

  50. Well it seems like it is a victory, because since that instance, you were not anywhere to be found in that blog. Unless you tell us or otherwise prove us that we were not victorious, we would not have a hint nor we would not believe we lost. How can you win a battle if you are somewhere hiding and thinking you won, while your enemy are also celebrating thinking they won.

    Have you seen the charts lately? She climbed a few notches back so your Flopville as of yet is just a fantasy.

    By the way, how do you define flop? As far as the album is concerned, it is a success for a debut in Hollywood, unless you can prove it otherwise. And in doing so, you must appreciate, this is her first international release, she is not as popular as Bieber, yet, but to debut at No. 8 is a big feat. Unless you are expecting for No. 1.

    And how do you define SUCCESS?

    By the way, you seem to be concerned with the performance of her album, have you done enough to support her? Rather than “concentrating” on spreading into cyberspace that it is a flop. If you would say, you do not need to support her because you do not care, do you think you need to care for whatever happens to her album.

    Aside from the album, there are positive things that are entailed to her success. She has opened a lot of doors for Asians and Filipinos, don’t you think that is not worth writing about?

  51. Nicht:
    “For one thing, I’m not so focused on charts alone. At this time here in NA, I can tell you there’s NO magazine covers (we are talking about charise), NO marketing items such as (T-shirts, notebook covers, collectibles etc). There’s NO visibility of such nature. I don’t mean to harp on Bieber, but he’s on TEEN MAG covers almost every week, he also has his own TV show every week on Sats; Miley Cyrus hosted the recent MMVA awards (that’s a lot of visibility)and she’s in mags all the time, course she’s got her videos too; Nikki Yannofsky modelled a recent spring collection in a mag, did a cover in another, she’ll be the youngest playing solo artist at the NICE (France) Jazz Festival at 16 and the list GOES ON, (I think I’m running out of space for Taylor Swift too).”

    Well, when Teen Vogue, Rolling Stones, Billboard and People’s Mag, where she will be featured will be issued, this will no longer be true.

    And by the way, that “girl” has a name.

    I hope it will not be too much for you to mention her name when you refer to her.

  52. Man, you must either be a closet fan or a person seeking so much attention. I’ve seen several comments you made about Charice in different blogs including Perez Hilton. Why do you dislike her so much that you need to post several comments in different sites just to say “she’s not good enough”…

    tsk..tsk…

    • ROFL. Another Charice fans that can’t tolerate opinions that they don’t approve of. You know, comments like yours keep me motivated to air out my views further.

      BTW that Perez Hilton comment is not one I wrote. If you analyze my writing and criticism style, the Perez Hilton comment deviates from my previous comments. There’s also a Yahoo comment maker who assumed my name.

  53. Regarding the “fair” treatment, I don’t go into a direction that would criticize her due to her looks or personal background. I keep it about the music and the figures (sales, charts, etc). Suffice to say, I’ve been “fair” when criticizing Charice.

    The same cannot be said for some Charice fans like Berto who recently dropped by.

    By: cardcrusher on 07/04/2010
    at 11:40 pm

    Fair? I wish you were a bit fair but you were not. Seems like the word fair does not exist in your world.

    If you had been fair, you could have presented all her achievements, which are all facts as well, not just EMPHASIZING on the negative facts.

    Have you been fair visiting all sites where Charice is leaving comments like “Pyramid is a flop” and so on and so forth. Where is the fairness in that?

    And when you got attacked by her fans, you created this blog accusing them of deception and being sock puppets. Where is the fairness in that?

    Did anyone of us create a blog against you?

    You should realize that your comments were hurtful and insulting. Where is the fairness in that?

    If you just respected her existence, you would not have been attacked by fans.

    If you had been fair in the first place, this blog would not have been created.

    • My comments are fair. If I were not fair to Charice, I would have taken the route of criticizing her based on her looks and personal life.

      • Oh yes I can see that, otherwise, that would be too immature of you, but still you could have respected the pride she brings, whether people like it or not, she brings pride to the Philippines.

        • What is this “pride” you write about? How does a third rate clone of Jojo/ Jordin Sparks bring “pride” to a country?

          If anything, Charice’s case exposes how Filipinos still suffer from colonial mentality. Imagine that, they would only support one of their own when a certain copycat gets recognition and publicity from Americans and Canadians.

          The same can be said about Arnel Pineda. Very few people gave a damn about him, but once Journey cam knocking, it’s all about “Pinoy Pride”. It also led to Filipinos too young to remember Journey at its peak, coming out of the woodwork to jump on the bandwagon.

  54. A few questions to Nicht:

    Why do you always write “charice’s” name like this?

    Don’t you think it’s kind of disrespectful?

    What has this girl done to deserve your wrath?

  55. Clique is the perfect example of a true chaster..soooo defensive…cant take criticism she is NOT in Justin Biebers league that her fans claim she’s in, so stop talking trash about other mainstream artists as if she’s dethrowned them already. her fans are overly smart thinking they are the music industry’s greatest gift. they also like to drop knowledge like they really know how the industry runs. i can always tell when someone posting about charice is filipino because they praise her like she is heaven sent and that shes better than the original singer that sang the cover that charice is doing. its actually kind of funny & pathetic at the same time. oh by the way, why does she always do home videos of covers? is she trying to prove that she can do better than the original singers? by the way, please dont think that shes getting all this hype for free…take note her publicist is MADONNA’s publicist, not just Boy Abunda..why do you think she’s getting all this headlines? Because she’s THAT GREAT…hell no. Again a product of industry hype and unfortunately the hype is not working for the mainstream market, only her CHASTERS are buying her so called HYPE!!

    Im gonna get blasted again for this comment 🙂 But hey I bought the album to show support..thats for you CLIQUE! Matter of fact, I should buy it again so she can move up but I shouldnt count because I am Filipino.

    • Hear! Hear! You said it Sarah, you almost took the exact words out of my mouth. They (her fans/chasters) simply cannot take any kind of criticism about her, as if she is SO PERFECT and BEYOND imperfection. What does that mean, it means one thing, they’re showing A NAGGING FEAR, and that their fear is that CHARICE DOES NOT HAVE EVERYTHING TO CUT IT IN THE BUSINESS!!! (‘ya like the way I spelled it in all caps in a sentence now? lol) The fact is, IF SHE CANNOT TAKE ANY CRITICISM SHE SHOULD NOT BE IN THE BUSINESS THAT SHE IS TRYING TO BE IN AT ALL!

      Nobody is perfect and if your girl cannot survive getting herself critiqued to the minuscule detail, then she just DOES NOT have what it takes unfortunately! IT’S NOT JUST TALENT! IT’S A WHOLE LOT MORE THAN JUST ONE TALENT! Talent is so common place. Your girl DOES NOT have the monopoly of it. In fact, her’s is NOT THAT RARE, you just REFUSE to return to reality to accept that. What were the examples? Tons!

      But of course, you expect her to magically be accepted by the mainstream. HELLOOO!! Reality check, magic and and anything that magically happens is usually NOT REAL!

      What were you expecting the CINDERELLA sob story that oprah keeps selling!?!! Heck NO!! Mainstream is too JADED and too sophisticated to buy that! YOU ARE the ones that are NAIVE, but DON’T EXPECT the same naivete from the mainstream.

      Yeah, just WHY is she always always doing covers? The last time I checked billboard’s other stuff she was doing a Shania Twain song on a Mash-up Monday (I didn’t listen, I just saw the still pics, read the text and moved on).

      Part of the text said that YOUR GIRL CAN DO COUNTRY NOW. I think she pulls stunts like that (just like what you said Sarah: doing home video of covers) ‘coz the girl WANTS TO SHOW OFF (which is one the most aggravating things that she always try to do), TO PROVE THAT she can DO BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL singers. Like doing a cover of a country song.

      RIGHT ON! Now here’s the tricky part, that prolly she and her marketing guru didn’t think of. DOES SHE REALLY THINK she can manage to sell a country single in NASHVILLE, or SHOW-OFF AS IF SHE CAN? Because if y’all think that mainstream hollywood is tough to get through? Folks you have NO IDEA, how hard it is to get into in the Nashville music industry! lol So you really think that she can sing country in all the cities /towns of Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, just like that??!! Like seriously…. like really?

      (Let me pause and LOL, this is the reason why I spend so much time on all y’all, you’re such naive comedians! It’s so sad, IT”S TOO FUNNY)

      See, it’s NOT JUST THE SONG y’all, but more importantly the boots NEED TO FIT the feet that wear ’em (and please y’all fans-who’re-out-of touch with-reality don’t take that literally, ‘coz that ain’t really smart)!

      AND I’m NOT compelled to show any support specially for someone who’s singing I don’t even like. Even my friends don’t either. So it’s not just me who’s NOT buying her album and spending our money elsewhere it’s a lot of others too. In fact, I can probably buy a 100 of her albums a month IF I want too (I spent as much on other artists in different categories/videos to build my library), BUT I WOULDN’T!

      • I agree that mainstream America is too jaded to buy into the rags to riches plot. It worked for Eminem because he had something to offer that enough of the mainstream liked. The story didn’t work in the case of Fantasia Barrino due to a couple of reasons. The lesson here: if one has IT, the mainstream will lap up one’s story and whatever one is peddling. Charice just doesn’t have IT

    • Sarah, I agree. Clique has difficulty handling criticism of Charice.

      I’m glad I’m not the only one who notices when a comment is coming from a Filipino Chaster. The comments are just so over the top, and they raise suspicion, not to mention eyebrows regarding their overeagerness to praise the copycat.

      IDK where you are, but if you buy her album in the US, it helps her Billboard 200 rating. She needs it. Her album just fell off that chart yesterday.

  56. by the way, let me make this clear..i wouldnt be so angry at her hype if it wasnt for her “CHASTERS” you guys are making this world a better place 🙂

    making all the other nonfans love charice even more (yeah right)

    • So PERFECTLY SAID! I cannot agree with you more Sarah! I specially liked the sarcastic little humor you added in the last phrase….excellent sarcastic little phrase!! It’s like, how can these chasters keep wondering why I spend my time on the subject of shoving REALITY CHECKS everytime I see some twisted hype….

      WHY THEM OF COURSE! They’re such naive comedians! Even then they can’t face REALITY! How funny is that!! LOL. It’s because of them, that evertyime I hear the sound of the Pyramid intro, I can’t help but gag, it’s because I associate it with the twisted hype and her chaster fans!

      • Excuse me for butting in, but I would not be going around the internet sticking to a very simple script if delusional Chasters can simply muster a simple:
        1.) I disagree, but you’re free to have that opinion
        2.) We’ll just gonna have to agree to disagree
        3.) etc

        If only they can state lines like those and not resort to ad hominems, sock puppetry and etc.

    • I’d like to add that some Chasters even recognize that the overzealousness of some of their fellow fans can even backfire against fellow fans reading the overzealous comments.

  57. nicht said it!! talent obviously is not what makes an artist big here..yes Beyonce has talent but more than anything what does she have? I beautiful face with super charisma! Lady Gaga is not as pretty as Beyonce but she just has IT but she plays the piano like crazy and she has catchy songs!! “UNIVERSAL” charisma…if only your bet had it then we would be on top right now!!!!!!!!

    I think only the music industry (or people in the music industry) really knows whats really going on with Charice’s career. I hate to say drop reality check on you guys but I know she’s not quite in Christina’s league yet, but Christina sold a whole lot of copies (compared to Charice) but yet she’s still considered a failure in the industry? Scary isnt it? But do you really think they would put more money behind Christina or Charice? If Charice is droppin and falling off the charts like a meteor, what do you think is going through the MAJOR Record Labels minds right now? Do I keep this artist? or do I let her go?

    Think about it! Keep buying her album people so you can prove to her label she’s worth that 2nd single!

      First of all, I notice that you tend to assume. You should not generalize Chasters much more a True Chaster, you have encountered only a few in this blog, or maybe on other sites where you happened to have left your “reality bites” comments, having said that, these few do not represent the whole Chastersdom. The same way, I do not generalize that Filipinos have crab mentality. One or a few does not represent the whole Philippines.

      I am a true Chaster in and out and I am proud to be one, but to call me defensive and can’t take criticisms, that you should not have assumed and I need to be defensive about. Can you prove that? I once told you, I agree with you on your facts-laden comments but what I do not agree are your assumptions afterwards. You always assume. Be careful with that, it kills. And what the funny thing is, all your assumptions are towards the downside. Are you always leaned towards the downside? Or only when it comes to Charice? Huh, Sarah?

      Secondly, you may have read somewhere this claim somewhere, but I am not one of those who said that Charice is in the league of Justin Bieber (though in my heart, talentwise, she is beyond), well, popularity wise not yet. That is their opinion, everyone has. When they expressed this opinion, was anybody hurt or violated? Was Justin Bieber violated? I do not think so. Up and coming singers are always compared to the popular ones, and it is sometimes or always a marketing strategy. But when you contradict that opinion of theirs, fans are hurt especially, the way you comment. You should be sensitive to fans, they would always protect their idols, so you cannot blame them for being defensive. It depends on the offense made.
      >>>>>>>>>
      “so stop talking trash about other mainstream artists as if she’s dethrowned them already.
      >>>>>>>>>

      Are you telling me that or to Chasters as a whole? Again, I have never talked trash about other artists, and if you can prove otherwise, let me see it. Other fans may have done that, again, do not assume that all Chasters do that. And fans who do that, are only fighting back who trashed Charice which is a natural reaction of a fan. But that should not be condoned. If you can read some comments by Chasters telling them, not to do it as it “may” leave an ugly mark, not only to the Chasters but to Charice as well.

      By the way, what do you mean by “dethrowned”, did you mean dethroned? Well obviously, you are referring to the Pop Princess title. First of all, New York Post called her that. Fans are so happy of course they would celebrate. If other fans may have gone overboard, again, these are only a few of them, that do not represent the whole. When New York Post released that issue, was anyone hurt? I do not think so. Except for those who do not agree I guess, who I believe, have no right to question New York Post. But when people started questioning it and leaving uncalled for comments, usually insulting ones, that they are not in favor of the title, fans are hurt, so the tendency is to answer back.

      >>>>>>>>>>
      her fans are overly smart thinking they are the music industry’s greatest gift” they also like to drop knowledge like they really know how the industry runs
      >>>>>>>>>>>

      Well I have read overly smart comments too. Fact laden comments. Kilometric and bottomless quotes from non fans who at one point I thought it was a lecture.

      >>>>>>>>>>
      . i can always tell when someone posting about charice is filipino because they praise her like she is heaven sent

      Haven’t you read comments praising her like she is heaven sent from non Filipinos? Well if to them she is heaven sent, does that hurt anybody? But if you say in their face, that she is not, of course they will react.

      >>>>>>>>>>
      and that shes better than the original singer that sang the cover that charice is doing. its actually kind of funny & pathetic at the same time.

      Obviously you are not a fan. Well I can attest to this claim. I only appreciate a song only after she did the cover. Why do you think it’s funny and pathetic?

      >>>>>>>>>>
      oh by the way, why does she always do home videos of covers? is she trying to prove that she can do better than the original singers?

      No. If she likes the song, she will cover it. And usually these covers are requested by fans, so home made videos are the best way to make her fans happy. Justin Bieber did home videos too, was he trying to prove he can do better than the original? No.

      >>>>>>>>>>

      by the way, please dont think that shes getting all this hype for free…take note her publicist is MADONNA’s publicist, not just Boy Abunda..why do you think she’s getting all this headlines? Because she’s THAT GREAT…hell no. Again a product of industry hype and unfortunately the hype is not working for the mainstream market, only her CHASTERS are buying her so called HYPE!!
      Im gonna get blasted again for this comment But hey I bought the album to show support..thats for you CLIQUE! Matter of fact, I should buy it again so she can move up but I shouldnt count because I am Filipino.

      Nobody thinks she is getting this for free.

      This is not all about talent. She is just starting, so she needs a publicist. Do you think, if they do not believe she has talent, they would hire someone like Liz Rosenberg? And do you think Liz will just accept the offer even if she does not see talent in the one she is representing. She will not risk her reputation. Have you heard Liz’s interview about Charice? Madonna did not become popular overnight, it did not happen in a snap, but with the help of Liz and her talent, she curved her name a long time career.

      Not yet, wait till will get there. She will sure get there.

      Have you expected all this will happen to her? I am sure, you did not.

      >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
      by the way, let me make this clear..i wouldnt be so angry at her hype if it wasnt for her “CHASTERS” you guys are making this world a better place
      making all the other nonfans love charice even more (yeah right)

      Why do you blame Chasters? Do you expect fans to just keep quite when Charice is attacked unreasonably. Some will not care, but some will react. Have you tried doing the same to Justin Bieber? Or to any other singers? Am sure you will get the same if not worse reactions.

      It is not up for the Chasters for the non fans to love her. It is for the non fans to find in their hearts that this girl deserves a chance and respect.

      Reply

      nicht said it!! talent obviously is not what makes an artist big here..yes Beyonce has talent but more than anything what does she have? I beautiful face with super charisma! Lady Gaga is not as pretty as Beyonce but she just has IT but she plays the piano like crazy and she has catchy songs!! “UNIVERSAL” charisma…if only your bet had it then we would be on top right now!!!!!!!!

      I think only the music industry (or people in the music industry) really knows whats really going on with Charice’s career. I hate to say drop reality check on you guys but I know she’s not quite in Christina’s league yet, but Christina sold a whole lot of copies (compared to Charice) but yet she’s still considered a failure in the industry? Scary isnt it? But do you really think they would put more money behind Christina or Charice? If Charice is droppin and falling off the charts like a meteor, what do you think is going through the MAJOR Record Labels minds right now? Do I keep this artist? or do I let her go?
      Think about it! Keep buying her album people so you can prove to her label she’s worth that 2nd single!

      Again, not yet, but she will soon get there and will last long.

    • Let’s see the options are, Christina or charice? That is a such a funny one. LOL Aside from the fact that Christina is an A-lister in Hollywood, charice is a NO-lister in Hollywood! (Oh this is sooo funny) Note: she only gets into the hollywood crowd only if foster/oprah is around (right they’re the A-listers, now you get it, lol).

      Let me just do a quick run-down on Christina: 4 Grammys and a Latin Grammy Award (amongst fifteen and three nominations respectively). Apart from her work in music, she has also dedicated much of her time as a philanthropist for charities, human rights and world issues, and she has become one of the most successful recording artists of the decade, selling more than 42 million albums worldwide. Rolling Stone ranked her number fifty-three on their list of the 100 Greatest Singers of All Time, ranking as the youngest and only artist on the list under the age of thirty. (Sorry no mention of oprah’s “most talented girl in the world’ – must be all in your head, you out-of-touch-with-reality fans.)

      I’m sorry, I must’ve dosed off in one of your (out-of-touch-with-reality fans) mindless RANTS, now which one of you nutcases said that your girl will one day be MORE POPULAR than BIEBER (and it’s very, very, possible)?….whoooo I’m soo scared! LOL….lemme see what’s selling on the newstands…

      SO FAR this week, I see 8 magazines with Bieber on the front cover, one is dedicated as the Unofficial magazine of Bieber’s World Tour (which included the concert in Australia, where there was a riot before it even started, one of several pre-concert riots wherever he goes), then there’s one that’s the COLLECTIBLE EDITION, then there’s the hard-cover which is dedicated to Justin Bieber’s STORY! So far that’s just for THIS WEEK ALONE! And that’s just Bieber!

      And what was the celebratory rap you (her out-of-touch-with-reality fans) were putting out when your bet moved from #173 to #139? That her Pyramid video debuted #1 and surpassed Lady Gaga’s and Christina’s….Ex-squeeze me? ….Yeah it was on the Yahoo video charts. Yahoo IS an internet search engine! (LOL) You really debuted her video there? (note of ironic disbelief) What’s wrong with debuting in MTV, MMV, MOD and getting ripped apart by the mavens there? What?!? Oh that’s right! You can’t take any criticisms of her. But everyone’s videos gets ripped apart by the video critics there, but they all survived.

      What’s the matter? You don’t think her video can cut the butter there in the music video franchises?! Oh right, her management is just waiting for the perfect time! (sure, that would be an easy enough excuse for you her fans to concoct) When’s that gonna be?! When her album gets to #200 or past that? So something gives it the same band-aid solution as it does now. You know what I’m talking about, bringing it up from #173 to #139 (64 spots) when her video magically debuted #1 in billboards yahoo video charts?

      Can I tell you something COOL about #139? IT’S NOT QUITE IN THE TOP 40! (Heck its not even in the #100) And at the end of the week what the radio stations care to hawk as the songs worth mentioning are those in the TOP 40, and then there are the really nit-picky stations that ONLY DO THE TOP 10! Your girl’s single isn’t quite in either one of the weekly notables worth mentioning.

      Aint that a COOL thing to think about? How much longer must you keep the band-aid solutions on, because the video if it weren’t a band-aid solution, should have been released vis-a-vis with her album, as a systematic marketing SOP, in the RIGHT channels!

      That’s why Usher’s done a helluva job with Bieber because he did not do a “Western Spaghetti” job out of Bieber’s marketing, Usher did him right! As for your girl, the same thing simply CAN NOT be said!

      • Wow, you really talk a lot, and you go out of your way to check on everything that you could slap on that “girl” charice.

        I am just wondering why couldn’t you answer my simple question:

        What can she do to change your perception of her?

        Even if the reaches no. 1 on the Billboard Charts, which is by the way, not impossible, even if she wins Grammy’s Best New Artist, which is very very possible, even if she proves all your rantings wrong, not remote, you will always have something to say, that 101% sure.

        Another thing is sure, why you seem to rush her. She just released her debut album, and you expect her to be on top in a wink? Like you said, it is not all about talent, it is hardwork on her part and on her team’s.

        By the way, you seem to know a lot about the industry, have you tried to launch a singer and made him/her famous, because seems like you know every bit of it. Based on what you wrote, you can make someone really popular.

        If you have made someone popular already, well maybe you could reveal yourself and believe all what you said. Meantime, we will consider all these as NON SENSE talks. Put them to use.

    • On the mention of what’s on the newstands. It’s NO wonder I couldn’t find Verve Girl, when one of my friends told me its a canadian mag, but’s NOT SOLD on the newstands or anywhere its distributed FREE in schools, only in Canada. (It’s approx. 6inches by 8inches in size.) Oh okay that’s why!

      It begs the question: she had a free concert in Toronto, then she had an interview in a FREE mag? Then she has an official video for the album debut just a few short weeks later in yahoo’s video charts (which is just an internet search engine). The chronological activity of her marketing DOES NOT follow good logic.

      All the major cities in North America have music video franchises. Having a freebie concert at a mall then to simply slip away without soliciting exposure with any of the music video franchises (when by this time her video should exist), and work instead for an interview with a FREE magazine, that just begs for marketing retardation as an excuse.

      Now if the proverbial excuse is that the video was done after the freebie concert, that’s still NO excuse, unless her marketing really DID NOT have any intention to debut her video to CREDIBLE music video channels (i.e. MTV, MMV, MOD). As to why, THAT ONLY INVITES DOUBTS as to the strength of the video’s acceptability, that even her marketing might be questioning….HMMMMM!

  58. Nicht:

    Yeah, just WHY is she always always doing covers? The last time I checked billboard’s other stuff she was doing a Shania Twain song on a Mash-up Monday (I didn’t listen, I just saw the still pics, read the text and moved on).

    Part of the text said that YOUR GIRL CAN DO COUNTRY NOW. I think she pulls stunts like that (just like what you said Sarah: doing home video of covers) ‘coz the girl WANTS TO SHOW OFF (which is one the most aggravating things that she always try to do), TO PROVE THAT she can DO BETTER THAN THE ORIGINAL singers. Like doing a cover of a country song.

    RIGHT ON! Now here’s the tricky part, that prolly she and her marketing guru didn’t think of. DOES SHE REALLY THINK she can manage to sell a country single in NASHVILLE, or SHOW-OFF AS IF SHE CAN? Because if y’all think that mainstream hollywood is tough to get through? Folks you have NO IDEA, how hard it is to get into in the Nashville music industry! lol So you really think that she can sing country in all the cities /towns of Tennessee, Alabama and Georgia, just like that??!! Like seriously…. like really?

    I was expecting you did your research first before accusing her of this.

    Based on your previous posts, I assumed you know what “Mashup Mondays” is all about. But no, you have no idea.

    Billboard.com’s Mashup Mondays, a weekly series that allows current music chart-toppers to cross genres and perform a song beyond their usual sound.

    Do I need to explain why she covered Still The One?

    Tsk tsk.

  59. as u admitted you are a true chaster clique. so our views are already wayyyyyy different and clashing so you cant win with me and neither can i with you. but i can only enlighten you with a reality check. As to your comment that Liz will not take on any act because it will ruin her reputation, are you not aware that Liz left WARNER to start her own company and that she is Davids loyal PR? So are you saying that this is not the work of David Foster and that she just naturally believes in Charice thats why she handled her? Publicists are HIRED they make money off of people that want to be publicized so it is rare that some folks can afford high end PR firms such as Liz & Roger & Cowan & more but when you’re paying a PR 5-10K a month…you better make sure she’s doing the job. So do you think she would turn down a paycheck of that much? (And yes high end publicists do get paid that much)! Even the worst people in the news hire publicists for no reason just to get in the media. So again overly smart comments. I am very aware of Mash Up Mondays but I was talking about her home videos CLIQUE!!! No one wants to see her do a dance routine of Super Junior (ooooh and let me not even start with her dancing abilities!) or covers of Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga or whatever..The girl is trying so hard to fit in but she cant. The attempted slang accent is a complete failure!! CLIQUE did you buy your album for this weeks BIllboard?

    • First and foremost Sarah, did you really read my comment? That was not addressed to you, that was for Nicht, unless you, Nicht and Cardcrusher are one and the same. I would not be surprised if you are, and I do not care.

      Secondly, of course I am aware that she did. I did not say it is not through DF, but you should realize that not everything is about money, especially on the status of Liz, how much is that money for her? she has to consider who she is representing. If for you everything is all about money, again, do not assume others think the same way.

      If you’ve heard of interviews about Charice, you would know what I am talking about. If you have seen her with Charice, you would know. Don’t tell me, it is part of her job, yes it is and more.

      Thirdly, “So again overly smart comments” look who is talking here.

      • This is rich. A person who has used thee handle names (and I have to emphasize the instance when you stole Nicht’s identity) on this blog alone is accusing others of being sock puppets. LOL.

        • Oh I thought, this is over. I apologized, explained, and apologized and you again accuse me of stealing his name. first of all, why would I choose the name of someone whose views I do not agree with.

          Not my problem anymore.

        • You’ve been caught red handed, and you have the guts to accuse others of sock puppetry on a blog post about sock puppetry (I backed up my accusations with proof). Come to think of it, you accuse Nicht and Sarah of being sock puppets here where they can’t challenge your baseless allegations.

          Needless to say, the issue is not over when one who has committed sock puppetry accuses others of doing the same.

        • ok granting, I committed the sock puppetry you are accusing us of, I admitted it and apologized.

          By the way, you seem so affected accused of being sock puppets. How would you think other fans felt when you accused them of being sock puppets? Not all, resort to sock puppetry.

          If I accidentally proved you right, and I apologized, wouldn’t that suffice?

          Now tell me, did it hurt when I accused you of being sock puppets?

        • I’ve already acknowledged that not all Charice fans are prone to sock puppetry on this blog entry.

          The non overzelous Charice fans who read about sock puppetry should take it in stride that the deluded and overzealous among their ranks are not helping their cause. Those who condone sock puppetry (I’m looking at you Charicediva.com memebers!) should be ashamed of themselves.

          Was I hurt? Not one bit. I’m used to intolerant Charice fans throwing everything at me including stealing my identity two times on this blog entry that you are so fond of.

          Lest you forget, the issue here is a person caught using multiple names including the theft of Nicht’s identity actually has the guts to accuse others of sock puppetry. Real life indeed has a way of being more entertaining than fiction.

        • Theft? serious accusation my friend. First of all, is the name nicht copyrighted?

        • You obviously need to look up the definition of sock puppetry.

    • Oh my gosh! Someone did notice! You know there is A DICTION FAILURE from THIS GIRL! Who is she trying to mimic, someone from the Bronx or Queens? She is terrible! She starts her sentences with inane “you knows”, that is SOOO street talk! (IT IS VERY ANNOYING!) MY FIRST language is ENGLISH, so yes there is an awful accent and A DICTION PROBLEM with their girl, let’s not even get into her grammar! (She tries SO hard to defunct established artists like Lady Gaga or Bieber etc. by doing covers so she can try to prove as if she’s a genius who’s better than they are, she should really start working on her grammar and her diction to be acceptable first so she doesn’t look so ODD and so OUT OF PLACE!)

      So it’s NOT surprising when folks whose first language is NOT english, DO NOT hear that her actual pronunciation of Pyramid is NOT! First of all it’s covered with auto-tuning, but NO it’s not the way Iyaz says it (but then ENGLISH IS IYAZ FIRST LANGUAGE!) She drops her jaw far too loosely at the last syllable, IT’S WHY I CAN’T STAND the song!

      It doesn’t matter if folks (I’m pointedly referring to HER FANS at this point) think they can speak english and understand it, that’s fine but THAT IS just ONE THING! There is a distinction in the english language (i.e. american, canadian, british) and MAINSTREAM IS AMERICAN ENGLISH!! Even when buying GPS here you have to distinguish your preference in the three, for which audio/standard measurement that you prefer! The bottomline is she should learn to SPEAK the language she’s singing!! Mimicking = parrotting!

      (Really she tries to dance? Alright! I say why doesn’t the girl go nuts in that arena too! She has not mastered any category ~ with the results of mainstreams reception of her first album, and she’s only showed she can mimic by doing covers of everybody, sure why not dancing! Why doesn’t she try joining the Circ de Soleil – it’s a circus troupe!)

      She wants to crossover into every music category WITHOUT having successfully penetrated mainstream in any single one and what does that leave her? A FRUIT SALAD of all categories, that’s why she DOES NOT FIND HER OWN NICHE in the mainstream! So yeah Clique to reiterate Sarah’s question: did you buy your album for this week’s Billboard?!

    • ” am very aware of Mash Up Mondays but I was talking about her home videos”

      looks like you are yet you again accuse her of being a copycat, and even assuming that they eye for Country songs. ahahahaha

      “No one wants to see her do a dance routine of Super Junior (ooooh and let me not even start with her dancing abilities!) or covers of Justin Bieber or Lady Gaga or whatever..”

      Noone? I do, so that falsifies your statement. Again, you assumed that if you do not want to see her do it, everybody does. Have you seen the reactions of the people when she does that? I bet no, because you only choose to see what you want to see.

      “The girl is trying so hard to fit in but she cant. The attempted slang accent is a complete failure!!

      Trying hard huh? Really, but that is not what Oprah and David Foster believes. Or you are trying hard to insist to yourself that she has no place in Hollywood. And what right have you to say that, you are not even in Hollywood.

      Accent? well sounds cute to me, because even if I try to speak the language, I would sound like that. How about you, how do you speak english?

      CLIQUE did you buy your album for this weeks BIllboard?

      Yes I did, and even ordered for the Deluxe Version and the Japanese version. How about you?

  60. oh by the way..her mall show in toronto? was that free is that why there were so many people there? of course, now do you think she can fill up a 5K seater if her fellow Filipinos had to pay?

    • Oh heck yeah, the Toronto mall concert was a FREEBIE, and then they (chasters) touted her ‘interview’ with a FREE magazine AS IF it was such a big deal. YEAH right!! Now that’s really funny!! Like you couldn’t even find that free magazine in which she had that ‘interview’ anywhere in newstands because its distributed FREE in canadian secondary schools only. It’s also very small, like I was told it’s approx. 6 inches x 8 inches, so it would be like half the size of Teen Vogue or Teen Beat etc.

      You said she has a publicist who is a big deal? Really?!? Well is that what a big deal publicist does for publicity for someone who’s got success sales potential???!! WOW that publicist must be paid ON THE CHEAP in her case!!

    • Well, who said it was a paid show? Did you read anyone claiming it was? Of course she can, you underestimate the Filipinos? If you will not pay to watch her, do not assume others will do the same.

  61. being marketable is one of the main issues here!! Justin Bieber obviously not the most talented in the cookie jar but VERY marketable!

  62. on getting into Nashville….haha let alone an ASIAN girl trying to sing country. WOW NASHVILLE would would really love that. Just ask Shania how tough her road was getting accepted..and she’s very pretty 🙂

    • I know!! Yeah, that picture is so funny surreal! One thing is FOR SURE, their girl DID NOT GET THE MEMO on how to do SUCCESSFUL crossovers. Picking on country music (a Shania hit at that) to crossover,(that is SO frickin’ FUNNY) all their girl highlighted was WHAT A WRONG FIT SHE IS AT IT!!

      Shania has a lot of long standing LOYAL FAN BASE, and country music has more die-hard fans than pop, you pick on one of theirs and you are just inviting for being shredded apart. Their girl just INVITED MORE ALIENATION with that stunt she pulled! I got one word…..FOOL!

  63. by the way, her debuting at #8, in case you chasters didnt know, that was one of the worst selling weeks in the music industry. Warner timed in just right so that there are no huge pop releases during that week so yay with only 40 something K united you were able to get in the top 10!!

    • That is SOO typical isn’t it, that they only got there best peak at a time when the market was at a slow down. Timing it perfectly so they wouldn’t bang heads with more established and more sales-drawing artists. That’s a cheap way to avoid competition. BUT were they able to maintain that position?? Beiber on his 13th week was STILL IN THE TOP 10. While their girl on her 6th week was lickin’ bottom at #173.

      SO REALLY with only 40K+ album sales she weasled into the top 10 with her debut??? INTERESTING… How do the chasters think she can ever be more popular than Bieber (lets not even mention Christina). BIEBER already has A CERTIFIED PLATINUM in less than 2 months after his release of his 2.0 this March.

    • Some people can only refute what the FACTS are that are presented here such as that only 40K something album sales were made to nest the #8 position on the debut release of your girl’s album by such inane claims as “who knows how many more she can sell”. Is that THE ONLY WAY you can refute that? With baseless hopefulness? BUT if you can’t base it on FACTS that are established already you don’t have a case for any trending of success, and that’s STATISTICS (it’s a branch of MATHEMATICS), unless that’s NOT in your school curriculum you can’t follow, well then that’s understandable, and should explain your confusion!

      “…who knows how many more she can sell…?” Duh, after the #8 position she SWAN-DIVED to way after #150 and licked bottom up till #173, GET A PENCIL AND PAPER and see what that looks like!!! AFTER 6 MONTHS, it ain’t gonna look any better! Other artists will be debuting in the top 10 (like Bionic, eminem etc, etc) until SHE WILL ONLY BE just a figment of mainstream’s temporary recall for the short time she was in the #8 position. But WHAT ARE THE CHANCES OF RECALLING an UNKNOWN with A DICTION PROBLEM?!?!?

      “They announced it was to be released on her birthday?” Like you think Warner wouldn NOT have the schedule for the other artists in their stable AS TO WHEN they and the OTHER competitor’s releases? HOW does your logic compute? That’s really common knowledge, but if ‘you’ didn’t know that one….you are SOOOO UNINFORMED!! That’s why in desperation some nutcase even bought asian knock-offs of her album!

      Really some nutcase THOUGHT buying some asian knock-offs of the album will help boost the billboard album sales. Good luck with your money!!!! I hope somebody in your posse tells you IT DOESN’T WORK THAT WAY! Billboard charts only counts album sales of those that are manufactured and released from the US, congruently counts airplays only those in the US!!! That’s why the url address is .com it means its in the US!!!! DUH-UH

      What a classic case of comedy!!!!

      Just as a thought, I’m going to dish out a HOT HOT competition for you to you chew on: Katy Perry will be releasing in Aug 2010 her next album ~Teenage Dream! Fact: In 2010 Perry was ranked #1 on Maxim magazine’s Hot 100, with just ONE SINGLE (her second) she received MULTI-platinum certifications. Perry was ranked the 97th Artist of the 2000-10 decade by Billboard.She became known for wearing unconventional style of dress, often combining colors and vintage fashion. WHO WILL BE IN THE MAINSTREAM’S RECALL???? …………………..your girl has 1 album with barely there mainstream reception if you can call it that, when it’s clear who did all the back-breaking labor of getting her album at all……..”who knows how much more can she sell?” to mainstream??……….well why don’t you in your TWISTED -BREAK-FROM-REALITY try and do try very hard to answer that in your own twisted imaginations, because that’s ALL IT IS… your imagination!!!!

      • Addendum: THE above comment is thrown in general to HER FANS as are the following: on the premise the THEIR GIRL loves Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber, she should as she’ll NEVER be in their league, if whoever is hoping for THEIR GIRL to get a grammy ~ get a GRIP WITH REALITY! Look at what’s happening now! Their girl’s album is completely disappeared from the billboard charts (I wonder how they’re gonna sell that to themselves?) As for a Diction Problem TO BE EVER perceived as CUTE ~ IT’S NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!

        Lea Salonga NEVER had a diction problem she was perfectly accepted! Take that as an example!!

  64. Nobody denies that. This is business. That is why Justin Bieber’s camp is taking advantage of his marketability now. You seriously think, his marketability will last until he is 25? And that depends on his team’s long term plans.

  65. Hahaha, I do not know who gave you that idea? Nashville. I thought you knew what was Mashup Mondays all about? Again, you made assumptions.

    Funny,

  66. by the way, her debuting at #8, in case you chasters didnt know, that was one of the worst selling weeks in the music industry. Warner timed in just right so that there are no huge pop releases during that week so yay with only 40 something K united you were able to get in the top 10!!

    Oh we know that, do not assume that we don’t. So it is just a coincidence that it was her birthday as well and David Foster said a few years back that they would release her album only when she turned 18?

    You must realize, that is a big feat for her already. Not to you am sure.

    • Sarah, Billboard 200 No. 8 Debut is still No. 8 regardless of the total sales. She has made history no matter what and that you cannot deny. Even if No. 8 of other artists sold 500,000, they are still on the same rank chartwise.

      See, she may have sold 43,000+ on its first week of sales, you can never tell how many more she can sell.

      You think Pinoys will not watch her concerts. How about her PICC concert? People watched, though am not sure, if your 5,000 mark was hit. But you should consider, PICC ticket prices against other venues, they are more expensive.

      Can you answer me, why Lea Salonga always prefers PICC?

  67. Sarah, since you seem to know a lot about the business, why don’t you, Nicht and Cardcrusher, use become partners and use all these and “discover” a talent, make him/her famous.

    Basing on all your comments, you can make that person really famous.

    Instead of “criticizing” her management of what they could have done or not done.

    In that case, that would be fair for all.

    • What would be fair in this case if for you to recognize that Nicht and Sarah have the freedom to air out their views without you bringing up a strawman of them doing something about it IRL.

      • oh i do recognize, that is why I am telling all of you that instead of complaining everything and anything you can find about her, instead of wasting all your energies, leaving comments everywhere, why not put those knowledge in use. At least you could help her. Or if you really do not believe she deserves everything she is getting now, find someone else so that, whatever you did not like about her, you could apply to that person.

        That is fair right. To her, to you and to everyone.

        • For my part, raising awareness about Charice’s shortcomings is not “wasting energy”. As a result of my airing out of my opinions, deluded Charice fans , of which many are Filipinos, are given the chance to tolerate criticism and accept that others are entitled to their views. Unfortunately, many don’t react well.

      • Granting you are not wasting energy by airing it, did it solve the problem? No it did not. Therefore, the energy you spent on this was wasted.

        • You may think it is energy wasted, but I do not agree.

          Once again, you fail to comprehend that enough people don’t recognize the problem. They have to know that there is a problem at first.

  68. Oh my gosh! Someone did notice! You know there is A DICTION FAILURE from THIS GIRL! Who is she trying to mimic, someone from the Bronx or Queens? She is terrible! She starts her sentences with inane “you knows”, that is SOOO street talk! (IT IS VERY ANNOYING!) MY FIRST language is ENGLISH, so yes there is an awful accent and A DICTION PROBLEM with their girl, let’s not even get into her grammar! (She tries SO hard to defunct established artists like Lady Gaga or Bieber etc. by doing covers so she can try to prove as if she’s a genius who’s better than they are, she should really start working on her grammar and her diction to be acceptable first so she doesn’t look so ODD and so OUT OF PLACE!)
    So it’s NOT surprising when folks whose first language is NOT english, DO NOT hear that her actual pronunciation of Pyramid is NOT! First of all it’s covered with auto-tuning, but NO it’s not the way Iyaz says it (but then ENGLISH IS IYAZ FIRST LANGUAGE!) She drops her jaw far too loosely at the last syllable, IT’S WHY I CAN’T STAND the song!
    It doesn’t matter if folks (I’m pointedly referring to HER FANS at this point) think they can speak english and understand it, that’s fine but THAT IS just ONE THING! There is a distinction in the english language (i.e. american, canadian, british) and MAINSTREAM IS AMERICAN ENGLISH!! Even when buying GPS here you have to distinguish your preference in the three, for which audio/standard measurement that you prefer! The bottomline is she should learn to SPEAK the language she’s singing!! Mimicking = parrotting!

    IS DICTION, ACCENT AND GRAMMAR REALLY THAT IMPORTANT IN HOLLYWOOD? THAT IF YOU HAVE BAD ACCENT AND BAD GRAMMAR, YOU WILL FAIL? THAT AMERICANS AND OTHER ENGLISH SPEAKING COUNTRIES, WILL NOT BUY YOUR CD’S BECAUSE YOU HAVE BAD ENGLISH? IF YOUR ANSWER IS YES, I SUGGEST YOU APPLY AS HER ENGLISH TEACHER THEN. YOU SOUND LIKE YOU REALLY CAN HELP HER A LOT IN THAT DEPARTMENT. INSTEAD OF POINTING AT EACH OF HER FLAW, WHY DON’T YOU SUGGEST SO THAT SHE CAN CORRECT HER FLAWS.

    IN THE FIRST PLACE, YOU KNOW SHE IS NOT AN ENGLISH SPEAKER, HER ACCENT WILL NOT DISAPPEAR OVERNIGHT. EVEN FILIPINOS WHO HAVE BEEN IN THE US FOR MORE THAN 20 YEARS STILL HAVE ACCENT WHEN THEY SPEAK.

    SHE TRIES SO HARD TO DEFUNCT THEM? WHERE DID YOU GET THAT IDEA? WHEN YOU SING SOMEBODY’S SONG, DOES THAT MEAN, YOU WANT TO DEFUNCT THEM? SHE LOVES GAGA AND SHE ADORES BIEBER, IF YOU DOUBT THAT, THAT IS NOT HER PROBLEM ANYMORE.

    WHAT CAN YOU SUGGEST TO SOLVE THIS PROBLEM?

    (Really she tries to dance? Alright! I say why doesn’t the girl go nuts in that arena too! She has not mastered any category ~ with the results of mainstreams reception of her first album, and she’s only showed she can mimic by doing covers of everybody, sure why not dancing! Why doesn’t she try joining the Circ de Soleil – it’s a circus troupe!)

    AGAIN, WHAT CAN YOU SUGGEST SO THAT THIS GIRL WHO MIMICS WILL STOP THAT.

    She wants to crossover into every music category WITHOUT having successfully penetrated mainstream in any single one and what does that leave her? A FRUIT SALAD of all categories, that’s why she DOES NOT FIND HER OWN NICHE in the mainstream! So yeah Clique to reiterate Sarah’s question: did you buy your album for this week’s Billboard?!

    YOU ARE AGAIN REFERRING TO MASHUP MONDAY WHERE SHE SANG YOU’RE STILL THE ONE, RIGHT? YOU DID NOT READ MY COMMENT? YOU HAD NO IDEA WHAT MASHUP MONDAYS IS.

    OH YES, YOU DID NOT READ MY COMMENT, NICHT, YES I DID, I ORDERED THE DELUXE VERSION AND THE JAPANESE VERSION? HOW ABOUT YOU, WHAT HAVE YOU DONE GOOD TODAY?

    BY THE WAY, YOU KEEP ON COMMENTING ON SARAH’S COMMENTS AND YOU NEVER ANSWER MY QUESTIONS. WHAT CAN YOU SUGGEST TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE OF MIMICRY WHICH TO YOU IS A BIG PROBLEM?

    FOR THE LAST TIME, THAT GIRL HAS A NAME, HER NAME IS CHARICE. YOU MIGHT WANT TO RESPECT HER. DID SHE VIOLATE ANY OF YOUR RIGHTS TO DESERVE THAT KIND OF TREATMENT FROM YOU?

    • “IS DICTION, ACCENT AND GRAMMAR REALLY THAT IMPORTANT IN HOLLYWOOD?”

      I hope that was a rhetorical question. Look at the bigger picture, Hollywood believes that mainstream America can’t handle films and music not in English ( of the British and American variety specifically, note that there are many types of English). Hence, a film like “Red Cliff” is not given a major release.

      • My question needs a YES or NO answer, so is it a yes or a no? You did not answer it directly.

        • I’m not going to insult your intelligence. My answer is pretty self explanatory.

      • I did not see a yes or a no. Is it that important? Is it the very determining factor to make it in Hollywood?

        • facepalm.jpg

          Read my response once again. Protip: look at the bigger picture.

      • why can’t you answer me a yes or no?

        Oh I get it, you are not sure.

        • I prefer to engage people intelligently. I’m not in the business of spoon feeding those that can’t understand the obvious.

      • Really, so answering question with a YES or NO is not engaging intelligently?

        Why is that?

        What if I assumed that your answer to my question is a NO, where actually you meant YES. That would no be fair to you.

        Is it that hard?

        • My stance on this has already been pointed out. I can’t help it if you fail to comprehend a simple matter.

          Not to insult you intelligence, but this is my final say on that matter.

  69. hey Clique..again let me just tell you that Lea has TRUE fans, and not only true fans but borgoise rich (classy) fans that can afford to pay the ridiculous ticket prices in the Philippines, unlike the fake chasters that are only riding along Charice’s fame because Filipinos are so obsessed with trying to break into the mainstream! Unfortunately I wish we did have someone decent to represent us in the music mainstream world but I dont just buy into who’s “lucky” but I admire someone who really deserves it and who I feel can really represent us the right way. I dont buy into hype the way “our people” do. I hate to say that but Im just speaking the truth. Again I am filipino which is why I know our mentality. Yes I am a part of the industry which is why I can only speak for what I know and goes on behind the scenes, behind what creates the marketing hype.

    Lastly, I see that you didnt buy your copy of Charice’s cd this week…coz I cant seem to find her on Billboard anymore 😦

    But I did buy another copy this week! But 1 copy doesnt count.

    • Hey Sarah, are you telling me that Charice doesn’t have true fans. You assumed again LOL.

      Riding along huh? You really believe that Chasters are just riding along her fame. Who would not be obsessed to break into mainstream music? Can you honestly tell me, you did not wish that would happen?

      Truth? What is the truth? The truth that you, Nicht and Cardcrusher believe?

      Someone decent? You really believe she does not deserve what she is getting now?

      Since you are against her, who can you suggest to represent us instead? Someone decent and not just lucky?

      Oh I did, and you did too? Aren’t you just wasting you money buying her CD every week and yet you do not find her decent enough to represent the Philippines? Ironic isn’t it.

      • I agree with Sarah to some extent. Many Charice fans are only on the bandwagon because she received attention from Americans and Canadians in the entertainment industry. The Filipino community in the Philippines and in diaspora didn’t pay much attention to her before she got invited to the Ellen DeGeneres show. A certain portion of her fanbase only became fans because of the attention she got from the American entertainment industry.

        I’ve always posed the question if her Filipino fans of the copycat would be around if she were Thai or Malaysian or Vietnamese. So, Clique, care to address that point?

        • Again do no assume that what you do, others do it too.

          For your information, most Filipino fans know her way back the Little Big Star days, not just in the Phils but around the globe that TFC reaches.

          Of course everyone will be excited because finally, after Lea Salonga, a homegrown talent is again invited on an American show. Wouldn’t you? Unless you are particular with personalities.

          Not let me ask you this, if all these did not happen, will you also pay attention to her? I bet not. Hell you care about her even if she sings covers all her life. So you are also riding in the bandwagon.

          Finally, if she were not Filipino, would you also attack her the same way?

        • I disagree with you about many Filipinos knowing her during her stint on that contest. I know many Filipinos IRL and online who don’t pay attention to shows back “home” let alone have TFC subscriptions. Furthermore, I noticed that many just jumped on the bandwagon when she started her copycat shtick as an invited guest at Ellen and Oprah.

          Why would I be excited if one person who happens to be of the same ethnicity as me is invited to do some karaoke on Ellen? I’m not shallow, and ballads aren’t my thing.

          If deluded Chasters do not go around the net spamming, acting like barbarians, committing sock puppetry, and generally act like onion skinned fools, I would not give a damn.

          In case the deluded Chasters and the copycat herself are not Filipinos, I would criticize them as well considering how they conduct themselves online.

  70. this girl is handed everything she’s got which is another reason I dont really feel she’s well deserving. Who gets an album release date on their bday, same week of her FAKE supposedly baptism with all the big wigs in the industry (who gets baptized at 18 and asks all the powerful execs in the Philippines to be her godparents) talk about showing off!!, oprah re-aired her special, gets a part in Glee probably without even auditioning, gets handed the world? Thats insane! But of course in not even 2 months her album falls off the charts? Doesn’t seem to add up when you’re talking mainstream numbers. By the way, MONEY is everything in the industry. You dont make the record labels money in the industry they will drop you like a hot cake! If they cant recoup what they spent on you on just the 1st single, then you better pray they have that much belief in the artist that theyll push a 2nd single. If they can drop A-List artists like Mariah, Brandy, JLO and these artists sell MILLIONS and I mean millions, what makes you think they’ll keep a 43K unit selling artist unless of course Oprah puts up her own label and just wants to throw away money. But who knows, Oprah is her godmomma 🙂

    • Oh the bday release is easily explained, Warner as any recording co. like Sony etc would have a roster/schedule of the album releases of the artists in their stable as well as the releases of competitor companies. So it WOULD NOT make sense for them to release it at a time such as March, when Bieber who is a HOT seller will be releasing his 2.0 (which by the way sold a certifield platinum less than 2 months after its release = 1M+ album sales) or Usher, Katy Perry, Eminem etc. ‘coz that would head-butting a ‘NOBODY’S’ album with superstars who have superseller potential.

      So they come up with a MARKETING SPIEL, like time it when it would be optimally released for investing their money, and her b-day just came into convenient play. THAT IS MORE LOGICAL and MAKES MORE SENSE than just sentimental “LETS TIME IT on this “special genius'” bday because she’s so ‘FRICKIN’ special”, which makes NO SENSE if you’re putting your money (millions) on it! AND EVEN THEN it sold only HOW MUCH???? 43K of album sales and NOW ITS COMPLETE DISAPPEARED FROM THE CHARTS!???!!!!

      I guess they did the re-airing of an old special is because to actually spend more money on a NEW SPECIAL is just too much money to spend (you’ll have to get and pay for celeb guests), so it’s easier to just SIMPLY PAY FOR AIR TIME and re-air the same old sob-story and maybe the audience will remember the “FRESH OFF THE BOAT” image and BUY THAT instead, if they’re NOT GETTING the revised one they’re selling!……….ah I can’t relate with the baptism thing, isn’t that done with babies??!!!!……SEE WHAT I MEAN!! NOTHING about her makes any sense! I CAN’T BUY THE IMAGE SHE’S SELLING!!!

      About the Glee thing, everybody talks as if the new season’s already aired and as if her fans who are so OUT OF TOUCH WITH REALITY ANYWAY, put out as if they have access to the NEW SEASON SCRIPT! I think after they’ve done the finale the cast would be busy shooting the new season, but whereabouts is she now?….prepping for an ASIAN tour? (now why did her management toss her way out there when she hasn’t fully caught all of the mainstream??? HMMMM)….IS THAT RIGHT?…they can BUY her the part…but a lot of #1 shows have been axed the past season because of AUDIENCE DECREASE!…if she causes any mainstream TV discontent or bad reviews…well I wish all their imaginations LUCK! It’s crackin’ their eggs far too early!!!

      The first album is the market test whether or not the artist is saleable or not! It’s ONLY July and she’s GONE in the charts, your right again Sarah, they WILL HAVE TO RECOUP the money they put on her, and 43k album sales will not give them back the millions they put on her! A SECOND SINGLE/ALBUM?!?! oooh tough one to call! Maybe that’s why they’re tossing her back in asia because the reception will be easier on her, and maybe they can recoup somewhat their money. BUT for her to do a second album and sell it to mainstream the way her first album FAILED to fly (and I’m putting it nicely?) someone’s gotta be smokin’ something!

      • Addendum: MUCH ABLAH BLAH ON GLEE!! If American Idol has cut short its season’s tour because it lost 9% of its audience this year, NO tv show is ever immune from that, IT TAKES ONLY LESS THAN 10% of audience drop for the show TO GET some form of chop-chop…..AGAIN their crackin’ their eggs on THEIR GIRL far too early!!!

  71. i would love to do that CLIQUE but I dont have millions of dollars to promote an artist the way Warner & Oprah does.

    • I guess they can keep dropping their millions on their girl and then see it go dropping …and dropping…and dropping…and dropping! The first album is the first indicator if you have a seller or if you don’t!

    • THEIR GIRL’S ALBUM IS ABSOLUTELY GONE from the Billboards just like you said Sarah! It did not even take 6 months (oh that was being generous), NOW how did THEY expect mainstream to have any recall for THEIR GIRL who is no longer here in the charts!!….. Here’s a list in the billboards that she MAY someday FINALLY BELONG….check out #6 and 10 it’s something that’s so close to how she flew in the charts, also the list really goes up to #39 only, but there should be room for one more:

      BEST OF THE 2000S ONE HIT WONDER:
      They came, they conquered… they were never heard from again. After reaching the Hot 100’s Top 10 with their very first singles, none of these acts managed to crack the Top 25 for the rest of the decade. But hey, four minutes of fame is better than nothing.

      1.Daniel Powter’s “Bad Day” was used as the kiss-off song for the 5th season of “American Idol,” which gave the song enough juice to become the biggest single of 2006. The song went to No. 1 in April and stayed at the top for five weeks. But Powter’s good fortune didn’t last long; he hasn’t visited the Hot 100 since.

      2.Terror Squad, the hip-hop collective led by Fat Joe, topped the charts in August 2004 with “Lean Back,” giving the world a new dance craze in the process. The Squad fell back hard after that, only reaching as high as No. 62 with a subsequent single: “Take Me Home,” at the end of 2004.

      3. L.A. rap-rockers Crazy Town flew to the top of the charts with the Red Hot Chili Peppers infused track “Butterfly” in March 2001, and hovered at No. 1 for two weeks. The band’s wings were clipped after reaching that peak; they never saw the Hot 100 again.

      4. MIMS told the world “This Is Why I’m Hot,” and sizzled at the No. 1 spot for two weeks in March 2007. The Jamaican rapper’s next single, July 2007’s “Like This,” only went as high as No. 32. Not quite as hot.

      5.Atlanta’s D4L hit a sweet spot with “Laffy Taffy” in January 2006, when the song peaked at No. 1. The foursome only made it to no. 72 with their next single “Betcha Can’t Do It Like Me.”

      6.James Blunt sweet-talked his way to No. 1 with the inescapable ballad “You’re Beautiful” in March 2006. But fans dropped him soon after; his appropriately titled next single, “Goodbye My Lover,” only reached No. 66.

      7.”Crazy” was such a gargantuan smash, it felt like Gnarls Barkley’s spell would never wear off. But after peaking at No. 2 in July 2006, Ceee-Lo and Dangermouse haven’t made it past No. 88 with their subsequent singles. Crazy, indeed.

      8.Blu Cantrell struck gold with “Hit ‘Em Up Style (Oops!),” which reached the No. 2 position in July 2001. Since then, she’s only climbed as high as No. 70, with “Breathe” in 2003. Oops!

      9.Bo Bice won the hearts of “American Idol” viewers with “Inside Your Heaven,” which peaked at No. 2 in July 2005. After the cameras turned off, voters quickly tuned out. His next highest-charting single, “The Real Thing,” peaked at No. 56 in May 2006.

      10.Dream lived up to their name with “He Loves U Not,” which climbed to No. 2 in December 2000. After that, the manufactured girl group woke up and only rose to No. 39 with their next single, “This Is Me,” in the summer of 2001.

    • since, that is the case, I guess, you can just be her adviser, so you could at least help a kababayan reach for her dreams. Instead of this. Don’t you think it is fair?

  72. Lastly!!!…is Oprah gonna air another MOST TALENTED KIDS EPISODE PART 40 ON her? Is she still considered a kid at 18 will Oprah still do that when she’s 21, 31, 41?

    Isn’t Miley her age? Huge difference!!! I love watching Miley by the way! Girls got charisma!

    • Miley was SO HOT in the MMVA! Of course Katy Perry was extra HOT HOT HOT there too with the ice cream truck and all, we’re both Santa Barbara beachers and I always root for a fellow Californian!! …and NO 18 is already a LEGAL ADULT in north america, your parents expect you to get your own place, pay your own way and ACT LIKE AN ADULT and be responsible for yourself! So I DON’T GET the tweetums/little girl image “STILL dependent with family” image she’s trying to sell, it’s almost retarded, I guess it’s why mainstream IS NOT BUYING HER IMAGE!

      The way she talks, its like somebody her age would be MORE SOPHISTICATED! I don’t know if you get the Gene Simmons Family Show (he’s really a normal family guy and a normal american family) but for instance his 16 year old Sophie, she’s awesome, she even did some modeling ALREADY in Paris with her DAD watching out for her:

      http://www.aetv.com/gene-simmons-family-jewels/meet-family/index.jsp

      Yeah! I’m wondering the same how’re the gonna sell her to mainstream next year, or the year after? I’m not buying her now because she’s SO OFF and SO ODD, but she’s also trying to be hip-hop, diva, what else is she trying to do, dance? B-boy/girl?

  73. Nicht, you never anwered my simple question?

    Is it that difficult? More than copy paste?

    Well I guess.

  74. By the way Nicht, you really do not think she has a chance at the Grammy’s?

    What if she is nominated and won?

    Will you see her differently?

  75. Addendum: THE above comment is thrown in general to HER FANS as are the following: on the premise the THEIR GIRL loves Lady Gaga and Justin Beiber, she should as she’ll NEVER be in their league, if whoever is hoping for THEIR GIRL to get a grammy ~ get a GRIP WITH REALITY! Look at what’s happening now! Their girl’s album is completely disappeared from the billboard charts (I wonder how they’re gonna sell that to themselves?) As for a Diction Problem TO BE EVER perceived as CUTE ~ IT’S NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!

    You have no faith at all, do you? Well, if you choose to believe that, so be it. I will never touch this subject again, we will see next year. Hope you are still here. I will accept defeat, will you?

    Lea Salonga NEVER had a diction problem she was perfectly accepted! Take that as an example!!

    You must realize, Lea, even before she played Kim, she is already an English speaker. Kids who graduated from exclusive schools in the Philippines are known to speak better English that those who graduated from public schools.

    Since when did Charice start to speak the Language?

    For theater, as her field, she needs to have perfect English, that is why they held the auditions for the role of Kim in the Philippines because Filipinos are known to be good English speakers. Why not in Vietnam or any Asian country, why in the Philippines?

    So, if you tell me, if she cannot be perfect in English, I disagree with you.

  76. Cardcrusher I have so many questions which you opted to ignore that goes the same to Nicht and Sarah.

  77. Is that the solution according to you, or according to them?

    Going to that site, I will find their insights not yours.

    Since you blogged it here, it would be fair to get answers here.

    Now if you copy and paste what is on that site, that would make you a copycat. Am I right?

    • (i’m combining my response to you here with this one)

      There’s no problem according to them? Now you see what I have to scale?

      Re: solutions
      You’re just going to have to wait for my in depth solutions. As already stated, I’m still on a phase of raising awareness about the problem. I’ll give you a hint though: the solution lies within Charice fans raising their expectations and not tolerating mimicry, along with dropping the baggage of colonial mentality. Needless to say, it’s an enormous task.

      BTW I’ve been hammering the point about the aping committed by Arnel and Charice longer than the AntiPinoy guys.

      In any case, if one reads between the lines when one reads my two Charice related blog posts, the framework of the solutions become apparent.

      • I would surely wait for that.

        By the way, I suggest do not always write between lines, not all people can read between them.

        • I have high expectations and I try hard not to insult the intelligence of whoever I’m debating. That includes even those who sling mud at me. I’m weird that way. I expect others to do better even when they are insulting me. You can check it out where I encourage others to rise above ad hominems and cheap diversionary tactics even when they are threatening me.

  78. ok for clique..as to what i can do to solve the problem, i never said i wanted to solve the problem. the problem shouldntve been there to begin with signing and hyping up an artist that never had a chance in the first place. so why are you asking me to solve the problem when i never created the problem in the first place? it was a gamble the music industry took and i hate to say this but Foster mustve really been in impressed with the many fans and “YOUTUBE” hits she had on the internet and mustve thought that that 2mil would equal to sales, unfortunately he doesnt really understand how Filipinos work. Again id like to speak for my people because I am a Filipino myself and have been around many many Filipinos with the same mentality! Free support they love! IE: Pacman, ppv in each household or buy ppv for a huge arena so that the whole Philippines can see it for free or better yet, if people loved Pacman so much why was his concert cancelled in Hawaii? I dont want to start the Pacman dis because the man is obviously a great boxer but I just have to compare that!

    All we’re trying to say is stop celebrating so early as if she’s reached that stardom you claim she’s already achieved!!!

    You cant say i didnt support because i did buy her album 2 as a matter of fact. But i cant force the mainstream to accept her.

    • in your case Sarah, it is the complaining that I am referring to. Have you tried to do something to change what you don’t like? You forgot the second step of doing something to change what you do not like, you jumped to the third one, you began complaining.

      As for Pacquiao, people love to see him box not sing. That is all I can say.

  79. sorry i have to throw this in..for Nicht you have to have to see her Warner promo video on youtube where she goes shopping with IYAZ right before i guess their Philly show. She’s quite annoying and i think she does want to be a bgirl too.haha that is quite funny. Lastly, lets leave the Moonwalk to MJ please!!! And its crazy how her fans think she is actually a great dancer!

    • oh Sarah do not be too obvious that you hate the girl too much, that anything she does, irritates you, you might get heart attack lol. She will be doing more of that for her fans and for people like you LOL

      • And you are beside Sarah chekcing her heart-rate as she surf for the latest Charice news?

        • or maybe you are beside Sarah checking her vitals LOL

        • as commented by a person caught red handed committing sock puppetry, amusingly on a blog entry about sock puppetry done by Charice fans…..

        • oh no I did not say you are Sarah this time, I said you are beside Sarah lol.

        • Point duly noted

    • Hey Sarah…b/girl~~that’s a really funny one I’m sure, no thanks tho’, I’m waiting for the release of Step-up in real-D 3D in the movies in August (so I prolly wouldn’t want anything messing up my mind LOL), sorry im a li’l late seem’s you had a lively discussion with cardcrusher (im on a huge time difference over here) but you both covered the area sufficiently, and I have to say it has been a pleasure BREAKING DOWN REALITY for some mis-guided folks with you and cardcrusher Sarah =)

      As for the nutcase who KEEPS persisting and HOPING IF I WILL EVER CHANGE MY PERCEPTION OF THEIR GIRL (and still wondering why HE IS BEING IGNORED)—-I suggest—-he looks at his calendar and his watch and look at this word—-HOW ABOUT “NICHT” (trans. NO)!!!—-Unless your girl tries KARATE or mixed martial arts and maybe tries to be another Maggie Q, oh sorry Maggie speaks english FLUENTLY and she’s GOT the HOLLYWOOD ‘IT’ factor we’re all looking for! AND NO I HAVE NO ILLUSION EVER THAT THEIR GIRL WILL EVER HAVE A GRAMMY OR A MUSIC ACADEMY AWARD (bored at that concept), but anyone with delusions will entertain as much twisted thoughts in their heads because their twisted that way I’m sure.

      ~~~~WHY am I SO adamant? Well it’s so simple. I can count the weeks that THEIR GIRL’s album was on the charts with ONLY 43K albums in TOTAL SALES to the day IT DISAPPEARED FROM THE CHARTS! People with grammy, american music awards HAVE SOLD MORE than 1M ALBUMS in general!

      I got one question: didn’t she have a 13M fan base, and yet she SOLD ONLY 43k albums ? WHY DOES HER NUMBERS NEVER EVER TALLY? WHO IS SO FULL OF HOGWASH is it SHE; or is THE folks THAT MAKE HER UP?!?

      Who cares HOW Lea Salonga got to be a perfect English speaker – the FACT IS SHE IS AN ELOQUENT & PERFECT SPEAKER! That only proves that it is POSSIBLE for someone from where she’s from to accomplish it! WHY should hollywood and mainstream settle for anything less and simply accomodate a singer with a diction problem who is incapable of finding a niche for herself?!!

      • Addendum:
        Next year! Let’s see who’ll still be around protesting and swearing who’s “THE BEST” and “THE MOST TALENTED “GIRL” IN THE WORLD; if you’re not “TURNING COATS” by then …it’s amazing ‘coz that’s so SYMPTOMATIC OF WHAT’S happening now. HOW else can anyone EXPLAIN how a purported 13M fanbase suddenly RESULT to a MEASLY SALES TURNOUT of 43K and a short show in the charts….HMMMM! I’m sure myself and those who’ve kept our CLEAR MINDS AND LEVEL-HEADS will still be HERE, and won’t hesitate to say….why aren’t we surprised!?? Told ya THEY WERE JUST all ’bout a lot a HOT AIR!!!

        • Nicht, that reminds me of the case of “Snakes on a Plane”. It had massive buzz, not unlike the buzz that Charice has on Youtube. I’ll even stick my neck out and state that Charice videos on Youtube have far more views. In the end, both underperformed

        • Were they sure the 13M fan base are al individual counts in Youtube or did they include replays? How were they able to separate the replay counts from the initial/original views, to count them as a fan? Just askin’…

        • Youtube views are probably the aggregate amount of times the video is played. I don’t think it makes a distinction of unique and multiple views..

        • I have never heard someone says she has 13,000,000 fans, if you can provide the link to prove that, please do so. Oprah mentioned she has aggregate 13 millions YT hits as of her May 2008 guesting.

          Nutcase huh? Now you are getting personal and started calling names. Not a good sign. It’s a sign of being hit on the nerve.

          By the way, I never insisted nor wished that you change your perception of her. If you are Obama maybe.

          You think too highly of yourself, too high that you look at the girl whose name you cannot even say, too low.

        • AS to the 13M fanbase claim it’s based on the VerveGirl Mag (the freebie Mag in CA that she had her interview after her FREEBIE concert in Toronto)

          “Now Charice has built a fan base of more than 13 million fans and going strong.”

          http://www.vervegirl.com/sfs?t=/contentManager/onStory&e=UTF-8&i=1188245606825&l=0&ParentID=1273606182328&StoryID=1278089071272&active=no2&highlight=1&keys=charice&lang=0

          HOWEVER, her bio on her states that it’s hits on YouTube:

          “And as 13 million hits on YouTube tell us…”

          http://www.charicediva.eu/Bio.html

          So WHAT’S THE HOGWASH; IS IT ‘THEIR GIRL’ or THOSE THAT MAKE HER UP?!!!…YOU HAFTA ASK?!!!

          See hits on Youtube would have to include to REPLAYS/MULTIPLE VIEWS not the individual hit to distinguish a TRUE FAN. dontcha think?!!

        • As to the languages of Celine, Penelope Cruz and was Shakira mentioned I’m not not sure, let’s even include Thalia she’s big in the Latina comm.around here (she made Obama dance). Hello! Christina Aguilera is of Spaniard descent too!

          HERE you go ANOTHER FACT TO CONSIDER and THIS WILL BE THE LAST handholding I’m going to do for some nutcase whose fact-finding is so OFF-KEY FROM REALITY:

          FACT: DO LANGUAGE DEMOGRAPHICS:
          FRENCH – 136 million native speakers worldwide (for Celine)
          SPANISH – 325 million native speakers worldwide (for Penelope, Shakira, Banderas, etc, etc, etc.)

          What does that mean? It means more people can RELATE to the language and IDENTIFY with the accent. Spanish, French and German are taught as second languages in our (mainstream) school systems. What’s cute? Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Bruce Lee’s accents are cute. WHY? FOR THE SAME LOGIC:

          Mandarin ~ 882 M speak it

          Actually here’s a breakdown of the most popular languages for future reference:
          1. Mandarin Chinese – 882 million
          2. Spanish – 325 million
          3. English – 312-380 million
          4. Arabic – 206-422 million
          5. Hindi – 181 million
          6. Portuguese – 178 million
          7. Bengali – 173 million
          8. Russian – 146 million
          9. Japanese – 128 million
          10. German – 96 million

          Now, what kind of accent does YOUR GIRL have, and how many people CAN IDENTIFY with it?! Is that discrimination? Not at all? Because, everyone else’s language that is common knowledge IS FINE, but if your’s OFF (like ‘YOUR GIRL’s” as in it’s not common knowledge), THE ONUS SHOULD BE ON HER TO ADAPT AND NOT THE OTHER WAY AROUND! That’s a SIMPLE RULE of survival if you cannot ADAPT, you don’t survive too long!

          So don’t just dish out discrimination because of your ignorance, because really that’s SO easy to dish out specially if you’ve ran out of ideas as USUAL!

          I”M OUT, so go ahead CLIQUE, talk to yourself and go nuts! You’re NOT the INTELLECTUAL CHALLENGE I’m looking for!

      • Maggie Q is quite easy on the eyes and she held her own in MI3 and Die Hard 4.

        Do you have a link about her total sales? I’ve read on other places that the 43k was the first week sales (and we all know how it sank to the bottom of the Billboard 200 following its debut week)

        • The album debuted at the number-eight spot on the Billboard 200 chart (issue of May 29, 2010), with sales of 43,000 copies in the United States.[8]

          http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charice_(2010_album)

          My referenced info is the same total sales at debut to be precise, I should have been rephrased as such, there has been NO UPDATE to any NEW SALES in the same reference. It not only sank #173 it rose to #139 and then it WAS GONE a couple days ago from the charts.

        • Thanks for providing the link and clarifying the sales figure.

  80. also, Nicht is right, 2 months after an album release date that is usually the time when you need as much push here in the US and why is she going overseas? just curious if Chasters really know the reason why?

    i hate to say this but breaking down reality is actually making me feel bad about her. It was really great sharing opinions with you guys and actually people that make sense in the real world!!

    i know there are far more outspoken charice fans than there are actually realistic ones and its understandable because it is exhausting fighting with nonsense people.

    But hey keep it up Chasters!! Let’s hope for her Best New Artist in next year’s Grammys!!

    • Sarah
      Likewise. It’s been an honor to have you share your opinions about Charice on my modest blog.

    • Oh sure, the more outspoken Chasters are out there making money, using their knowledge for a better world.

      I am sorry if I did not engage you intellectually. This is the place for people like me.

      One thing for sure, we will meet next year, win or lose, it’s either you congratulate us or we congratulate you.

  81. ok…promise this is my last lasty, on cardcrushers point..just to prove that her fans are just on a bandwagon!!! please explain why Sam Conception (who obviosuly is not as great as of a singer as Charice) won over her on the talent competition in the Phil? Didnt people vote on that show? So CHASTERS will say its either ABS CBN had something to do with that because they preferred Sam coz they probably saw him as more MARKETABLE than her, or her viewers didnt care much for her no matter how much pipes she had! But now ABS CBN is kissing her #%@ big time!!

    Talent is not just all folks!!!!

    On the accent issue, i have no problem hearing Shakira talk at all and shes not that fluent, but at least she doesnt try to be slang the way Charice does which makes it quite annooooying!!

    • Since bandwagon is mentioned

      “Listening to Sentro ng Katotohanan on 1242 AM one Tuesday, I heard eminent commentator Arnel Endrinal make one of the most hard-hitting revelations about Filipinos who become famous abroad: they didn’t become famous because of recognition in the Philippines. They became famous because of recognition abroad!”

      The Truth about “World-Class Filipinos”

    • can’t you see the hands of fate?

    • I can answer that, because Filipinos still look at the “face value” not the talent, but the world does not see the same.

      But it’s a blessing in disguise isn’t it? Had she won in the contest, someone in the name of Falsevoice would not have thought of posting her video on youtube for the world to see.

      But as Lea Salonga says, talent like hers, the world will be too stupid to ignore.

  82. Clique..id like to change the world by actually doing better things that will help this world become a better place not supporting your superstar that will only benefit her & the idiots of the world.

    • you might as well leave her and the idiots alone so that you can focus on making the world a better place.

      • Sarah might be or might not be able to leave “idiots” alone (and that’s her call), but are you capable of not policing how non Charice fans express themselves?

        • oh I am not, are you capable of policing haters? or shall I say those who dislike?

        • You missed the point.

          Let me tweak the question: are YOU capable of not policing how non Charice fans express themselves on this blog?

        • my apologies, I did miss it.

          Yes I am capable to a certain extent. How about you? You have the right to do so.

          I just hope you also warn those who are “with you” when they say “uncalled” for comments, like name calling, because I see you warn those who are not with you.

  83. and if i change my opinion about her Id just be like you guys…FAKE SUPPORTERS/CHASTERS

    • Well of course you will be a FAKE SUPPORTER/CHASTER, if you joined us, because you were never A SUPPORTER/CHASTER in the first place.

    • To be fair to Charice fans and Charice herself, there is a small group of fans that has been around since her days of entering singing contests. I do have to mention that person who uploaded videos of her. She and her fans owe that person for playing a small but crucial role in her “international” discovery. They are dwarfed though by the bandwagon jumping fools who now cite Charice as the cause of their inflaming “Pinoy Pride” as mentioned on this link.

      • So you have a problem now with Charice being a copycat and the sock puppet fans and now the bandwagon jumping fools?

        Don’t you think, you are minding too much of their business?

        • Nope. Just sharing my two cents that everyone is entitled to. Notice I’m not ordering them (or to take a cue from intolerant Charice fans, wishing death among other things) how to conduct their business. It’s a simple airing out of opinions. Nothing more, nothing less

  84. Ooh that is a scary statement.

    She is only one and the “idiots” are few according to you. There are 6 billion more, don’t get affected by these idiots.

    You can choose to mind others and not these “idiots”

    • What?!

      • That is a reply to Sarah referring to us as idiots of the world. LOL. I have heard worse.

  85. Nicht,

    You still have not answered my question.

    You are attacking the girl you cannot even name on a personal level. You know her and she does not even know you.

    You keep on telling how much you know, but how come you cannot answer my very simple question.

    It’s either, whatever she will do, your perception of her will never change because the issue here is HERSELF, not her broken english, not her being copycat OR you really do not know what.

    Very simple, no need to write a novel in this blog. You could have written a book if you put all your post together and yet I can get nothing but mere AIR.

  86. And oh before I forget, let me say this once and for all, you do not like, do something to change it before you complain.

    Looks like you missed the second part. You have been doing the first and the last.

  87. Nicht:

    I got one question: didn’t she have a 13M fan base, and yet she SOLD ONLY 43k albums ? WHY DOES HER NUMBERS NEVER EVER TALLY? WHO IS SO FULL OF HOGWASH is it SHE; or is THE folks THAT MAKE HER UP?!?

    Oops looks like you missed this one. It did not stop at 43,000 LOL that is only the first week sales, you really believe she cannot sell more? LOL

    Nicht:
    Who cares HOW Lea Salonga got to be a perfect English speaker – the FACT IS SHE IS AN ELOQUENT & PERFECT SPEAKER! That only proves that it is POSSIBLE for someone from where she’s from to accomplish it! WHY should hollywood and mainstream settle for anything less and simply accomodate a singer with a diction problem who is incapable of finding a niche for herself?!!

    Who cares how? Well if you know her story, you would not ask why. If you knew that not all Filipinos can afford to send their children to private school, where, unfortunately, education is much better than the government can afford to provide.

    They would rather buy food that send them to a more expensive school. It is possible depending on your resources, but not on her case, where at the age of 7 she had to join contests to put food on their table and not to buy english books.

    Did you hear her speak the first time she went to the US? Don’t you agree that she has improved a lot?

    Don’t you believe that she can improve her diction and accent more?

    Is it really the DETERMINING FACTOR that if a singer or an actor cannot speak fluent English, he/she has no place in Hollywood.

    What about the case of Celine Dion? Up to now, her English grammar is not perfect. Is it because she speaks French and Charice speaks Tagalog? How about the case of Salma Hayek and Penelope Cruz?They still have accents but they made it. Is it because they speak Spanish and not Tagalog? Or they have the IT factor which for you Charice does not have, which is, like beauty, is subjective.

    Is there some kind of discrimination here?

    Since she has an accent, and has no IT, who, then instead of her, should be bashing in the limelight? Who is more deserving?

    Why then, Ellen smells the star in her?

    Why then, do you think Oprah believes she is the most talented girl in world.

    Why then, David Foster, claims, she is the next singing supertar?

    Why then, New York Post called her the New Pop Princess?

    • From a previous comment I posted:”I got one question: didn’t she have a 13M fan base, and yet she SOLD ONLY 43k albums ? WHY DOES HER NUMBERS NEVER EVER TALLY? WHO IS SO FULL OF HOGWASH is it SHE; or is THE folks THAT MAKE HER UP?!?”

      To which you responded to: Oops looks like you missed this one. It did not stop at 43,000 LOL that is only the first week sales, you really believe she cannot sell more? LOL

      Here’s my new reply: Here is something NEW that I will introduce in your vocabulary, it’s called RHETORICAL QUESTION ~the question functions as a negative assertion, as a challenge not requiring a response.

      FACT:In the United States here has been no updates on any NEW sales that has been publicly posted anywhere! The billboard charts base unit count on US/NA sales, hence may explain why her album is NO LONGER IN THE BILLBOARD CHARTS! If you are still buying, billboards won’t be counting it! It’s only the north american sales and air plays, it’s got something to do with the RIAA certification (do your homework, we know how it works, you figure it out)!

      Do you ever wonder why Sarah calls you an idiot? Is it because english is NOT your first language, thats why you read and comprehend english LITERALLY and CANNOT understand any NUANCES? Or do you think it’s some other reason? What else could it possibly be, do you think?

  88. Nicht:

    You could have explained it in a more simple way so that someone whose intellect like me is not as engaging as yours.

    Why do you always have to make it too complicated? I think I will not answer to that, not because I cannot, but because you scare me a lot. LOL

    Oh I am sure I am not the intellectual challenge you are looking for, yet you can’t answer my simple question.

    Let me see, if you are even that intellectually gifted, what are you even doing in this blog?

    I am just wondering why are you even wasting your time on a girl whose name you always write as a common name.

    You could have spent your time “designing” spaceships so that in case the earth explodes, you will have something to escape with. Or you could have spent your time writing a book, so that, after your demise, people will remember you more as someone who inspired people or wait, why not make music since you seem to know a lot about music or why not teach English in school to teach people especially those who are not perfect english speakers.

    Let me see, I think I know the reason, you cannot do any of the above, that is why you blame your frustrations on an innocent girl who has done nothing wrong.

    A girl who at 18 is already a millionaire, yet she cannot speak and write perfect English. She does not know a lot facts about music, yet she makes millions of dollars and here you are at your age, and “unbelievable” knowledge is spending time too much time here, to pick on a girl whose name you cannot even speak of.

  89. By the way, the discrimination I am talking about is not by the people who buy records but by people like you.

    • Just because you’re an UNORIGINAL PLAGIARIZER (who twists what I write incapably), and who also TRIED TO STEAL MY HANDLE NAME IT DEPLORES ME TO even engage directly, BUT it’s necessary to REMIND YOU TOO that I told Chris 22 (which I’m, sure You did NOT READ) that I USED TO HAVE ALL OF ‘YOUR GIRL’S OLD ALBUM including a CHRISTMAS SINGLE that was included in a 2009 album collection last year (SO I did buy her album albeit the earlier one on amazon to give chance to an newbie, altho’ IT WASN’T WORTH IT ANYWAY IN THE END!).

      All of which I REMOVED any trace of her music from my library and the reason is because I WAS REPULSED BY ALL OF THE CHASTER’S and their obnoxious attitudes and their DISGUSTING, MANIPULATIVE way of engaging people who HELD independent opinions that did not agree with them!

      Mainstream doesn’t like to buy anything just because it feels sorry for it! Beyonce knows that, Lady Gaga knows that, Cyrus and Bieber knows that! She wants to sell, let her put out. Right now she’s not setting any trends she’s FOLLOWING them, MAINSTREAM DOES NOT BUY FOLLOWERS, we don’t DIG THAT!

      As for her millions you seem so impressed with, is that IN YOUR currency, that must be really BIG TO YOU? Unless she gets a pad next door to me in Bev. Hills or an extra pad to crash in the Hamptons, she hasn’t made it anywhere here yet!

      Why do I like to hang here and hang with folks like Sarah, because I can and because she reminds me of level-headed people who can be independent minded! NOT bandwagon riders LIKE YOU!

      WHO is RESPONSIBLE for the RESPULSION and DISGUST that caused not only the REMOVAL of ‘your girl’s’ album and music from my library, but also A permanent NO SUPPORT to the new album and to ANY NEW and forseeable product that will be produced by ‘YOUR GIRL’ ?!?!? ~~~~WHO?! You can give yourself as a CHASTER and all of yours that profound honor!!! IT’S BECAUSE OF YOU ALL, THAT I WILL NEVER EVER BUY HER ALBUM AND NEVER SUPPORT YOUR GIRL AT ALL!!

      • Addendum: Typo correction : RESPULSION – corrected REPULSION

        By the way, thanks cardcrusher! It’s been a great pleasure seeing some INDEPENDENT thinking from your blog! I know it takes courage to take the flak from some narrow-minded individuals who actually RIDE BANDWAGONS in their mis-guided attempts to WINDOW-DRESS their own delusions, but are quite incapable of any original thought or ideas on their own; let alone forward any ORIGINAL ideas other than what they’ve pigeon-holed themselves into (or otherwise peeled from someone else’s posted comment including yours which I’ve also seen LOL).

        • Nicht, the feeling is mutual. It’s been great for you to grace my blog and present some ideas and opinions to some Charice fans.

    • Also You asked:I have never heard someone says she has 13,000,000 fans, if you can provide the link to prove that, please do so. Oprah mentioned she has aggregate 13 millions YT hits as of her May 2008 guesting.

      SO HERE’S THE LINKS THAT YOU’RE TOO LAZY TO LOOK FOR YOURSELF, so what are you going to do about them? The one link that definitely states the 13M number comes from Youtube hits is from a chaster website, you gonna ask them to revise that or write to VerveGirl to correct their misconception (OOH I wonder where THAT came from)? SURE, why IT WON’T MAKE ANY difference TO THE FACT THAT SHE’S NO LONGER IN THE MAINSTREAM CHARTS.

      AS to the 13M fanbase claim it’s based on the VerveGirl Mag (the freebie Mag in CA that she had her interview after her FREEBIE concert in Toronto)

      “Now Charice has built a fan base of more than 13 million fans and going strong.”

      http://www.vervegirl.com/sfs?t=/contentManager/onStory&e=UTF-8&i=1188245606825&l=0&ParentID=1273606182328&StoryID=1278089071272&active=no2&highlight=1&keys=charice&lang=0

      HOWEVER, her bio on her states that it’s hits on YouTube:

      “And as 13 million hits on YouTube tell us…”

      http://www.charicediva.eu/Bio.html

      So WHAT’S THE HOGWASH; IS IT ‘THEIR GIRL’ or THOSE THAT MAKE HER UP?!!!…YOU HAFTA ASK?!!!

  90. Ooh another serious accusation, plagiarism. which I am not so guilty of. But I think I am beginning to give in to your power of suggestion. LOL. I like the sound of the accusations you are hurling at me.

    So, you threw all your collection of Whose Name You Cannot Speak Of, because of the fans? Really?

    Do you think that is fair? Has she done the same to you personally? Or there is a deeper reason that this as I find it really shallow coming from someone as learned as you. Were you violated in some ways?

    I think I mentioned millions of dollars, well for your information, if it is in my currency it would be a lot more.

    Soon, she will have a mansion not just in Beverly Hills. Well maybe when you sell yours, she can buy it.

    Now, let me tell you this, however intelligent or rich you are, if you do not use them for the good of other people, you are nothing.

    You cannot even suggest how to solve the issue which to you is a problem, all you do is complain, brag, complain and brag.

    Oh pardon my English, I am so poor that I cannot even afford a good school. But whatever I have and whatever I know, I put them to good use.

    • Let me finish your sentence for you, it appears your grammar is AMISS, you mean I AM NOTHING YOU CAN EVER HOPE TO COMPARE WITH! HAHAHAHA!

      HAVE A GOOD LIFE! I”M SO DONE WITH YOU!

      • I don’t think I will ever hope to be compared with you. It will be too unfair to you and will not do you justice.

        Have a good life too.

        Spread love and wisdom for a better world.

  91. Whether its copycot or not – if its good, its good! Mariah Carey is a copycat, too – i.e. Michael Jackson’s “I’ll be There.” Don’t put your foot in your mouth! It’s difficult for artists to do original songs when they are so poor and starving! Charice and Arnel are great! They will have their original songs. You all damn critics – Just watch!

  92. Spoke too soon?… negative critic reviews never succeed… Now eat your words!!! Charice is now one of the most popular young recording artist not just in the US but all over the world. The 4th in Billboard’s 21 under 21 Music’s Hottest Minors in 2010 next to Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez surpassing Miley Cyrus and Nick Jonas. The most popular new cast member of Glee’s Second Season (The most popular TV show in the WORLD!!!). Charice album went GOLD in Japan… HA!!! HA!!! HA!!! that’s for your crooked mentality.

    • On the contrary, I made my positions too late. I am vindicated by the lackluster results of Charice’s album and single. A flop in terms of the Hot 100, and an album that quickly sank to the bottom of the Billboard 200. The numbers of people who didn’t pay attention to what Charice peddled tells the whole story.

  93. LOL can we all just get along?
    I just think all of this is sort of BS. Both from cardcrusher and Charice’s fan. I don’t think it’s good to go to an extreme as sock puppetry to promote your artist. To be fair however, going to an extreme to put an artist down isn’t good either. As far as Charice future is concern, I can’t predict the future if she is going to be a world diva or not. There is still a lot of years left in here. If she is to become a diva then more power to her. But ultimately what I am trying to get at is it’s ok to support your artist, just don’t put other artists down just to promote your own. Everyone have there own voice even if they “imitate or copy” other artist’s song. You got to start somewhere, when you don’t have enough of your own song, sing songs from other artists to until you have enough of your own songs to showcase your individuality.

    • LOL reading what I have just read, I realized there is a lot of grammatical errors, sorry I haven’t slept for two days and was bored and stumbled on this.

  94. She’s going to have another album soon – perhaps you just better wait.

    • No need to wait. I’ll predict that it will be a flop like her current album. She just doesn’t have that “IT” factor, and you have to consider the people kind of lame songs her producers come up with.

  95. I REALLY ADMIRE YOUR DEDICATION JUST TO DESTROY CHARICE AND HER FANS..IT’S REALLY RIDICULOUS HOW YOU SPENT PROBABLY MOST OF YOUR TIME TALKING TRASH ABOUT HER,EVEN ON YOUR TWITTER ACCOUNT..WHILE CHARICE IS FULFILLING HER DREAMS AND BECOMING MORE FAMOUS..I HOPE KARMA HIT YOU PRETTY GOOD..

  96. dang straight ladies’ man… what cardcrusher can’t accept is that others do not believe or value his opinion very highly, only the ‘opinionated deaf eggheads’ like him…

    then he gets upset when the fans start bashing him back. dude you reap what you sow. You’ve heard of karma right?

  97. Ok I read most of the comments here and I just want to speak as an unbiased appreciator of music and arts.

    When I first heard Charice, I am at awe at her vocal range, her stage presence and charisma. She makes for a perfect entertainer. If not for her asian look and poor background she would have had a better chance at the American market. I passed by her in Toronto when she performed there and it was… seriously. Just out of this world. I don’t know why. I never really liked singers who shouted much. But as I’ve said earlier, she have perfected her tonal and vocal control and it didn’t make my ear hurt. So I appreciate her efforts, live performances and humility. She might come off as arrogant but she’s quite a sweet girl when you meet her irl.

    Now about her CD flopping. You already acknowledged the fact that she’s asian, so obviously you should know that Americans don’t take diversity in music too well. And that in American media sex and shallow beauty sells. All of which allows albums to top in Billboard 200. The Billboard that you base everything on. Charice is not beautiful, in generic terms at least. But she have another kind of beauty within her. Her voice and stage presence. Music is to be heard, felt and understood. Not to be judged by sales and the appearance of the musician/singer.

    Granted, she is not as popular as other idiotic Charice fans may think. But you cannot deny the respect and awe she instills in other musicians and singers. Because even I, one of the most cynical critics in music and arts had to admit that she does, have that strange “IT” factor. Not to mention she have a good personality and attitude that keeps propelling her forwards. And for her songs, try Note to God. The song is made for her and it’s actually quite beautiful.

    I will not bash you because it is a waste of time. I only commented here to explain how I feel about Charice’s CD. Now if we’re talking about the fans. I kinda agree that most of them are too obsessed with her. But I’m speaking good drugs obsessed and not JB obsessed where people are idiotic to the point of no return. Pity and let them be, I understand that Filipinos have a hard time building their own identity. And let them be. You don’t need to be discriminative to express an opinion. Hate is not productive and I seriously do not know how you could obsess over a human being who hasn’t even done anything to you. Trivial as trivial goes I will presume that you are an adult now. So I just hope that you find something better to spend your time with that involving yourself with a teenaged/young adult’s life and her silly fans.

    Good day.

  98. Is that chaRICE midget piglet still trying to be a star? First a singer, now a movie actress? What a joke!!! She can’t hack being a singer so she is trying her luck in movies! hahahaha her english speaking sucks!! Seriously people, stop being delusional!!

  99. I used to like Charice because she is a good singer, but I DONT like her now because her fans are so delusional. AND BTW. Just because she has her original songs doesn’t make her a good artists if what she sings are B-rated rejects from other artists, like Louder – Demi Levato reject. (Demi is another talentless Disney star. So that makes Charice even more generic). Which is so generic, compete vile trash. I can name 100000000 songs that sounds exactly like it. These so called Chasters are the epitome of standom, and stupidity. They GLORIFY Charice as if she’s the biggest pop-star that ever existed. Why can’t they accept the fact that 99% of her fans are Filipinos. And don’t even bring up the so called, non-filipino, foreigners who mob and support her. And don’t bring up that pitiful #1 Chart position that Pyramid held on that Hot/Dance Remix reject chart that prolly accounts for 0.001% of the total chart sales.

    Give me 1 video where she was mobbed by foreigners. (Foreign-Filipinos don’t count. So that leaves with maybe 10 people.)

    I for a fact am NOT disregarding her vocal ability that she possesses. It’s the STYLE in which she sings, and her LACK of identity in the music industry that I’m not buying. Pyramid sounds like a Jojo reject, by the way.

    And her hooking up with Nick Jonas with One Day doesn’t give Charice more credibility, as Nick Jonas himself is not really a talented singer. To a lot of Filipinos, he is a musical prodigy because he’s white, and good looking. But nonetheless, he makes the most horrible music out there. One Day is a complete vile piece of generic trash. The message of the song is good, but the song itself, is just unbearable to even listen to. It’s as cheesy as it gets. If she is so big now, then why does her One Day Music Video still sits at 400,000 views? If all foreigners know her? And don’t even call me a Sarah Geronimo fan, or any of those try-hard Filipino karaoke singers out there. I am a Filipino, but I DESPISE our entertainment industry.

    I AM a big Mariah Carey fan, and if she did in ‘fact’ say that Filipinos are copycat, then it is the truth. We are nothing but big copycats. It is true. We rather drink Starbucks, than local coffee. We rather buy “brand” name items because they’re American. And you wonder why we’re entitled as monkeys.

    Back to Charice. I cant’ emphasize it enough. She SUCKS, SUCKS, SUCKS.

    Most mainstream listeners think of her as a joke and unoriginal. So what if she sings AMAZING. So does Jennifer Hudson, Kelly Clarkson, Christina Aguilera, Beyonce, Carrie Underwood, and many other singers. And don’t even bring My Queen Mariah Carey to this. I’ll laugh when I see Charice’s new album debut at #50 with 5k sold. Let’s face it. The Oprah effect has long died, and now she is left hanging by a thread.

    Charice stans are so delusional. WHO CARES if people give her standing ovations? Did they buy the album? Hell no. They couldn’t even care less about her. Even Jackie Evancho’s album has sold more than 1.5 million copies, and guess what she’s only 10.

    I’m not going to criticize David Foster, or any of his work because he is in good terms with my idol.

    Until then, call me when Charice’s new album sells 500,000 copies world wide, let alone the states. I think I 500,000 is way to generous… no?

  100. thak you for submitting ypur post , this is very interesting post, and i will definitely take a lokk around your site.
