It seems like Aiza Seguerra is not amused that some people are using the term “Uma-Aiza” when talking about Charice. That’s totally understandable of course. Aiza explains that Charice is her own person with her own identity. Leave it to Pinoys to come up with epithets, no?
NO TO CHARICE COMPARISON. Since Charice Pempengco cut her hair short and changed her image last March, just in time for her concert, she has been compared to many celebrities.
Coupled with ambiguous answers on questions about her gender, people started calling Charice “another Aiza Seguerra.” We asked Aiza what her take is on Charice’s new look.
“Uhm, I have nothing naman to say about it.
“I mean, with Charice, kahit ano namang gawin niya… whatever she does, it’s fine, as long as she’s happy.
“Natatawa lang ako sa mga tao siguro na ginagawa akong parang, ‘O, si Charice, uma-Aiza!’
“Hindi ako… ano ba, ano bang term yun…adjective, noun, I don’t know…
“But, uhm, I am lesbian. But don’t use my name to substitute that word, alam mo yun?
“Kasi…I may be lesbian, but ‘wag mong gamiting ‘uma-Aiza.’
“’Cause Charice is a different person. She has her own character, personality.
“She’s not ‘uma-Aiza,’ she’s a whole different human being. So let her be.
“If that’s what she wants, if that image is kung sino talaga siya or whatever it is that makes her happy, let her be. Alam mo yun?
“Kumbaga, enough of comparing, enough of whatever. I think that’s where you mature.” (source)
