International singing sensation Charice, who is preparing for her role in the next episode of Glee, said Oprah Winfrey does not want her to fall in love at this time.
The 18-year old Filipino singing star considers Oprah as her main career adviser and a very close family friend having served as her godmother during her church baptism last year.
"The last time we talked, she told me not to fall in love or have a boyfriend yet," the 18-year-old Filipino international pop star said, referring to her benefactor and main career adviser.
"I agree with her because I myself am not ready for that. In Ms Oprah's eyes, I'm still a baby," Charice told journalists.
And her crush: Justin Timberlake!
Charice, who is now in Manila for her "Charice: Home For Valentine's" special on GMA-7, admitted she did have a crush on Justin Timberlake, whom she met in 2009. "I sang for him at an event and my knees started shaking when he smiled at me. I nearly forgot the lyrics," she recalled, laughing.
"Ms Oprah is part of the Charice team. We seek her permission for every project that I do, like 'Glee.' When I went to a number of auditions, including some movie projects, there were a few of them that Ms Oprah didn't like. She's very strict. She doesn't like kissing scenes.", Charice added.
Meanwhile Glee creator Ryan Murphy announced in previous interviews that Charice will appear in five more episodes before the American musical comedy series ends its season 2 run.
The diminutive Filipino songstress first gained global recognition through video-sharing website You Tube and has since become a favorite of US TV talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.
Charice has just completed her Asian concert tour last year with David Foster and friends with live performances in Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Japan.
