A Chaster's Sentiments

charice sings at US Philippine expo @ Pomona, CAImage via Wikipedia


I have been wanting to say this for some time now .we are all fans of Charice and she calls us her friends; that’s how much she loves and respect her fans. We are trying our best to promote her the best way we can, some work harder than others, but nonetheless it still counts. The Charicemania team has done a lot to make sure we are always updated on the latest events and news concerning our Princess Charice.

Some of the Chasters in the Chat room seems to think they are part of Charice’s team but they are not. We have pseudo stylist, nutritionist makeup artist and the list goes on. We are her fans and we all have opinions on how she should look what she should wear. But has it ever occurred to anyone that she is comfortable in whatever she is wearing. She is a teen still finding her way and still experimenting with her style that’s what all teens do .I have four nieces and am sure you hall have sisters and daughters who do same .

She is being bashed on youtube by the crabs for everything that she does already. This Charicemania fan site was dedicated and created for her so we the fans can come and have fun make friends and talk about Charice in a positive way. Yes we all have opinions and we all disagree at times but this is her fan site, when Chasters come to the site saying how ugly she looks in that or what the hell is she wearing and fire her stylists its deeming her. We are better than that, at the end of the day when Charice opens her laptop and take a peek at Charicemania and see those hurtful words am sure she is sad.

All am asking from Chasters please refrain from saying those things in the Chat room. If you have to vent, go on youtube, facebook, twitter or whatever medium you chose but please I am begging all Chasters please stop the negatives on Charice personal or performance's get ups, she does not need that from her fans, she has heard her entire life how she looks and she will never make it as a star. So my friends as we are in the chat room just enjoy the joy she brings us and people all over the world and not worry about the trivial stuff. She comes once in a generation so please let us show her more love than hate. Thanks everyone.

Thumbs up to this articles...this talent comes in every generation and were lucky that we had experienced or seen such a great gift. .......

I totally agree with you Camo. Some Chasters have the what we call sports spectators' syndrome. They sit in their sofa, criticize the players while eating their chips and drinking their beers, thinking they can outperform the game, only finding themselves being futile because no matter what they do or say, the state of the game only depends on the real players themselves. Charice is the real player, we have to be reminded that we are only spectators. Enough said.

Camo, you are so right, let us just enjoy the ride of what will Charice bring us to. Let us thank God for His gift to us.

What can I say? Nobody can describe it better. I am not fanatic fan - I am old guy - and I know where is the line...

Maybe we all know that but it's great you wrote it black on white, Thanks Camo:)

Who has said that? That's not a fan .. for me! a fan is who love her idol and does not matter how she looks! a fan is who love her just the way she is.. I really love Charice she is my idol! the best forever and ever! :) A fan from Uruguay, Latin America.. I'm proud of you Charice! :)

I suspect those people posting negative comments are fans of other artist pretending to be Charice fans. Some artists in the Philippines are endorsers of clothing lines, shampoos, cosmetics etc. They don't want Charice to set a trend because it might outsell their idols products.

Well said, Camo. As a lurker on Charicemania, I have seen many times that few of the chasters on the chatroom are taking things way out of proportion. I know we are very protective of Charice and want her to succeed in what-ever she does, but do we really need to criticize what-ever she wears, answering questions, make-up, etc.? Let her manager and record label handle that. We are here because we come united as one. ~ take care, from a Chinese fan...

This is a very enlightening and timely message for all the chasters, Dave. I hope they everyone the message and reflect on themselves what a true chaster is all about. I agree that some chasters are just actually chatsters, who just chats and never realize where they are chatting, and just went on and on having fun with whatever opinion they have about Charice and throw it out there like a piece of meat for everyone to chew on. Like what Charice always say, her true Chasters NEVER say BAD things about anyone. Thanks Dave.. for speaking up in behalf of the True Chasters..

Very well said, Camo. You see, I used to participate in the chatroom but because of this issue I just got contented of being a lurker.

CAMO, Good thing you put your sentiments into writing so that we can refer this to others.
One important thing I've learned, esp. after the poohmouth incident, is to never say anything hurtful or negative about any artists.
We are here for the Charice adventure ride, let's enjoy it wherever i may take us.
Also, defend Charice in a positive, understanding, non-aggressive way.
PeaceV

well said, camo. you are 100% right. some people are very critical about charice appearance,make-up,etc. they should appreciated her talent and being a good person inside and out.
we should respect each other too(please do not write negative comments about charice or each other in the chat room).
thank you.

Anonymous said...

Thank you and well said, camo.
I always open the charicemania site because of charice. Just to reminder everyone who use the chat room be professional, write something positive about charice instead of criticizing her and above all respect each other.
Promote Charice in positive way.
P.S. I want to thanks to DJ Drake,Eve, Admin,staff and to all the members of charicemania.com for helping charice. You guys are awesome!

Aeon Jelsey said...

Now that we know better, we can all start anew and try, no! Don't try, we must avoid these unnecessary comments/opinions and just celebrate what this generation has given to us, a rare gem that we followed from like an unpolished piece of stone into a fine cut diamond.

A swan born amidst the ducklings now have grown wings and took the flight traveling the world but kept on taking us with her.

A proud chaster I will be until the time Charice will become a legend that she was meant to be.

Lalaine said...

Thats what Im talking about!!!!! I am a silent lurker on charicemania, and what I do? I enjoy her videos and articles and the only thing that matters to me? her amazing voice and talent :)

Marie said...

Yes Camo, I know your sentiments because I feel that way too! Every time I heard something not good about Charice, I become weak because I can't argue or mad to my friends or family members. They don't know how deeply I'm hurt. Sometimes in my silence...they will cheer me up by telling some news about Charice that my eyes sparkle & smile again.

Thank you for letting us all know that...Nobody is Perfect. So, for the crabs..."If you have something not good to say, just shut up!"

Camo, I love you for loving our princess. I am one of the lurkers but you are one of the best Chasters and I really salute you for that. You tirelessly defend our princess in every way you could. Thank you. I always LOL when you hit/whip those 'crabsters' in the chat room and i love you for always leading the Chasters in the buying spree of Charice songs on I-tunes.

Thanks, Camo!

If David Foster wanted to mentor a fashionista, I'll bet he would have picked Paris Hilton. If he wanted someone who is extremely articulate and fluent in English with nary a hint of an accent, he would have chosen Barack Obama. If he wanted a saint, he would have taken in Mother Teresa. If he wanted to show off the most beautiful face on the planet, he would have chosen Aishwarya Rai. But guess what? He did not do all of the above. Instead, he has graciously taken under his wings an unpretentious little girl with a big voice because hers is a talent that comes once in a lifetime.

Others label her as being arrogant. Because she is learning to speak a second language with an American accent? Charice is the poster girl for an Asian making it big in US mainstream music. Her accent and her attitude (mistaken by some pinoys as "yabang") are all emblematic of the process of cultural assimilation (a delicate balance between her roots and her host culture) that every immigrant goes through. It's a natural phenomenon. For one to say she's become "mayabang", bespeaks of one's ignorance. Indeed, little knowledge is a dangerous thing.

She has done more good to our image (tarnished by incessant corruption and unrivaled political grandstanding in govt) abroad as all our politicians combined.

So, half-baked-Chasters, lay it low and give Charice what she is due. If it pains you to see her outfits and hear her accent, go vent it out to someone who shares your sentiment and both of you can wallow in misery!

Salute to you Camo. I am a lurker of CM and a real fan of Charice. Notice that other FilAm celebs/artists only introduce themselves as FilAm if they ask support or going to perform in the Phils. Charice is the real deal.

Anonymous said...

Camo, thats good reminder for all chasters. but i think, its not a true chaster who does that, they're kinda just mingle around on CM as a pretenders, they can be fans of other fil artists/singers who doesn't want charice to prosper in her rendezvous in her career. there's really 2 kind of people in this world, a lover and a hater/crab. a pretender & a loyal fans. so pretenders will always inject some negative stuffs on our Pride Princess Idol CHARICE! and it hurts me when i read those ugly/negative comments about charice by haters,& sometimes i can't just ignore their foulmouths i have to reply to that too,if they're near me i will pull their hair till it get bald thats how i feel. and give them a flying kick in their foul mouths. or maybe put an ax in their brain damaged head, thats how i feel towards those haters. there's only 1 super singer in this era-charice era. when i left the phils 1979 april, i only have 1 idol-nora aunor. and since ive been here in houston texas i dont have a real idol but i hear lots of singers, until this American Idol-Kelly Clarkson-so i got someone to idolized w/o nora aunor, and (jlo-even shes not that great singer-i like her and i bought her albs). so, nov.2007 i received fr viral em charice video fr. south korea starking and i've watched that a lot and then fr ellen dec.2007 and on Oprah may 2008. and i dont go to you tube, i only do em and chat ym and play online games and i dont have fil channels those years so i dont know whats happening in phil showbiz or do i care? when AT&T-uverse has the promo that they have Filipino channels, so i got connected mid aug.2009, so i was able to watch ASAP & SOP now Party Pilipinas and other shows there. i watched them all and i got entertained thats all to it. and nov.29,2009 there came Charice as guest 1st time i saw her on ASAP since i have my AT&T connection and she was singing this Tagalog song that really heartstruck me and i went crazy really so amazed and i have to contact my friend in Kuwait if she knew the fil song w/ this few lines of lyrics and she googled it and said its "LIPAD NG PANGARAP" and also i asked my niece in the phils how i can archive on ASAP to ck charice singing that Lipad ng Pangarap and told me i have to go to You Tube and i said i dont want to go there and get virus, etc and she said thats the place to watch videos, so i've learned how to go to YT. and i've searched all archives for articles to catch up w/ charice-what transpired since then in her life. those NYPost and other u.s. newspapers who gave a great reporting on charice was so awesome to read-thats the time charice sang duet w/ celine at the madison sq.garden. i've learned a lot fr CM-like FB,twitter and linking an article,hehehe, sorry but its true, im just learning now. so, u guys/gals lurkers.pretenders/haters u dont mess around w/ this CAMO or CHAMOster- he is the surgent-at-arms on CM, U HAVE NO RIGHT AT ALL TO SAY SOMETHING NOT RELATED TO CHARICE SPECIALLY U CANT CHAT ABOUT OTHER ARTISTS, its totally charice site. so, u guys, dont keep on posting other artists there, hehe!!BEWARE, OR OPINION IS NOT NEEDED. THANKS CAMO and congrats to ur upcoming wedding -to lissa? from: anitako

Great job, Camo. I believe you that you are sincere in your support of Charice. I have made a vow to myself that if there's really something that I feel Charice needs to work on, I will let her management know rather than discuss it in chatrooms because I do care about her sincerely. If I honestly believe that she'll benefit from it, then I will let her management know because they are the ones who makes things happen for her. Keep it up, Camo!

Anonymous said...

Camo, thank you for bringing this out. Crabs are mostly flips (pinoys) who idolizes other artists in RP. Their envy is killing them and that's why they have to vent their frustrations in the chat box. Me, I just ignore them. Sooner or later they will get tired of it especially if they are ignored.

Well said mon!! I couldn't said it better..Now my only advise to you is every time you see someone making comments or complaining about our Princes in CM,just post this blog and let them read it. Believe me it will be less stressful for you..lol.. God Bless mon..
