MANILA, Philippines – Change is coming.
After his recent breakup with the X-Factor Philippines singer Alyssa Quijano, the international sensation Charice has ultimately transformed himself, changing her name to Jake Zyrus.
Charice related that he had undergone various transformations to make himself more manly, and expressed that with changes in his body, a change of name is also needed.
The name change has ultimately created a buzz in the Philippines, especially in social media. While many, especially from his fans, had been glad on his decision, he got the most critical remark from his grandmother.
Due to his bold move on transforming himself, other celebrities had plans to change their names. In fact, Jodi Sta. Maria had now decided to change her screen name to Jodi Ann Santos.
When asked for the reason behind the name Jake Zyrus, he said that he had considered first other names.
“After naming mag-break up ni Alyssa (Quijano), kinailangan kong mag-move on. Naisip ko, bakit hindi na lang kaya gumawa ulit ng bagong pangalan, para sabihin na heto ako, bilang totoong tao.” (After we and Alyssa parted ways, I had to move on. I thought, why not make a new name, to say that this is me, this is real.)
It is to be remembered that everybody at first called him as Charice Pempengco, which was shortened later to Charice.
“Ngayon, puwede pa namang paikliin. Puwedeng Char na lang ang itawag sa akin. Haha.” (Now, it can be clipped further. They can call me Char. Haha.)
Run out of names
Jake explained that the alternative name Charito is not good to hear even if he transformed. ‘Charles’ may be considered.
Running out of ideas, he asked his friend on a suitable name for him, which his friend did not provide, but the friend advised Jake to base his name on his idols.
“Bigla kong naisip si Jake (Vargas), tapos si Miley (Cyrus). ‘Bakit di na lang kaya sila, friend? Jake Cyrus, gandang pangalan.’ Ginawa ko na lang ‘Z’ para maging astig. And that’s me – Jake Zyrus.” (I suddenly thought of Jake Vargas, then Miley Cyrus. ‘Why not pick their names, friend? Jake Cyrus, that’s beautiful name.’ I had changed the spelling to ‘Z’ to make it more manly. And that’s me – Jake Zyrus.)
With the transformation in him, he had expressed his intent on engaging with new projects. According to him, his change of look and personality needed a change on the history of his singing career.
“Dahil ako na nga ito – si Jake Zyrus, nasa isip ko na kailangan kong balikan pati na ang mga una kong mga project after akong sumali sa Little Big Star. This time, bilang si Jake Zyrus, gagawa ulit ako ng MV ng Lucky Me, magpapa-ad ako sa New Zealand Creamery, kakanta ng ‘Pyramid’, sasali sa ‘Glee’, at marami pang iba.” (Because this is me – Jake Zyrus, I had thought of a need to remake my first projects after I joined the Little Big Star. This time, as Jake Zyrus, I will remake the music video of Lucky Me, remake an ad of New Zealand Creamery, sing again the Pyramid, join again the cast of Glee, and so many others.)
He had considered also to redo his previous albums. By singing again his past tracks, he felt that this action will rewrite the history of music industry. For example, he wanted to revise the song Pyramid as follows:
Shawty’s love is like a pyramid (ooh)
We stand together till the very end (eh ooh)
There’ll never be another love for sure (ooh)
Iyaz, Jake Zyrus let we go
Meanwhile, Senyora, in her Facebook page, had illustrated an example of the changes after Jake’s transformation:
Jake was flattered on the change brought about by a videoke user. He hopes that any changes relating to him will be effected not only on the present and future periods, but also on the past.
Jake also manifested his new personality in acting as the new Malia in the evening program La Luna Sangre (The Blood Moon), as told also by Senyora:
When asked why he was picked as Kathryn’s substitute, Jake replied, “Marami nga din pong mga nagco-comment kung bakit wala si Kath sa programa. Actually, sinabi niya po sa akin na magpapahinga na daw siya dahil napapagod na siya sa kakakumpara sa kanya kay Nadine.” (Many had questioned why Kathryn Bernardo is not now part of this show. Actually, she told me that she needed rest for she is tired being compared with Nadine Lustre.)
“Sinabi niya sa akin na magkamukha daw kami. Kaya inofferan ako na maging substitute niya.” (She told me that we are alike. So she gave an offer to be her substitute.)
Since he is now in that program, the viewers can see now if the prophecy will be fulfilled or not.
“Sobra po akong nagpapasalamat sa ABS at binigyan po ako ng opportunity sa La Luna Sangre.” (I am thanking ABS-CBN so much for giving me the opportunity in the program.)
Because of his radical transformation, the network plans also to include him in the comeback season of Your Face Sounds Familiar. The rationale is that if Charice has the capability to transform himself into Jake, he has also the capacity to transform into other celebrities.
