Singer-actress Charice Pempengco revealed on Sunday that she is a lesbian.
The big news came during an interview with Filipino talk-show host Boy Abunda on his show The Buzz.
“I have deep gratitude for the Filipinos because they are the ones who know who I really am. … I don’t know what the problem is because for me, there is no problem with that. So now I ask for forgiveness from those who don’t understand. And those who cannot accept. I apologize: I understand you,” an emotional Pempengco, 21, said.
To those who could accept, and who could accept me, thank you very, very much. I just want to say to all of you that I feel very light – that I can leave the house knowing I am not hiding anything … I love myself, that’s why I’m able to do this.
Pempengco became famous in 2007 after talk-show host Ellen DeGeneres discovered the now-popular YouTube video of Pempengco singing “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” on the South Korean talent show Star King.
She eventually landed a recurring role on the FOX series Glee.
