Charice Pempengco has confirmed she is a lesbian during a tear-filled television interview.
"Yes, I am a tomboy," E! News reported the 21-year-old Filipino pop star and "Glee" cast member told "The Buzz" television program in the Philippines, using a common Filipino colloquial term for lesbian.
"I don't know what's the problem with that. Because for me, there isn't a problem with that," she said.
"Now, I'd like to ask for forgiveness to those who aren't able to understand."
Pempengco also said her mother and grandmother don't approve of her sexuality, but she is hopeful they will eventually support her decision to be who she is.
