First was her banged, power-suit-wearing alter ego for the cover of Preview January-February and now, a month later, Charice debuts an even newer re-do with her blonde razor sharp cut. Rihanna? Avril Lavigne?
Perhaps not quite, but the singer does do the job of making head turns as she aims to transform her image to mimic the edginess of the previously mentioned performers. While her chunky highlighted hair may not channel Umbrella or Sk8r Boi singers upon first glance, her direct peg for the cut was that of Lightning, the protagonist in the video game Final Fantasy XIII which is a favorite of brother Carl. Incidentally, the singer has other special ties with the Final Fantasy franchise as she was tapped to sing the theme song of the recent release.
