Filipina singer Charice, 18, is expected to look different when she appears on the hit show Glee based upon the latest Internet buzz. Rumors have been flying that she got Botox treatments to alter the shape of her round face to a narrower profile.

Not so fast says a rep for Ms. Pempengco: “The procedure was to relieve a jaw problem similar to TMJ. You’ve seen her face – she doesn’t have a wrinkle in it so she wouldn’t need it for cosmetic purposes. The Glee people are thrilled with the way she looks which is why she got the part.”

According to the rep, the only change that will be noticeable is that “she had her hair colored at the Brad Johns Studio at Elizabeth Arden in NYC. That’s the only cosmetic thing she’s done.”

Charice, the first Asian in history to land in the Top 10 of the Billboard 200 album chart, got her big break on The Ellen Show at age 15. Oprah dubbed her the Most Talented Girl in the World.
