Filipino singer Charice, who first popped up on the American music scene when she was discovered by Oprah Winfrey, revealed in an interview with Boy Abunda on The Buzz that she is in fact a lesbian.

When asked about her sexual orientation, the 21-year-singer responded, "Opo, tomboy po ako." This translates to, "Yes, I am a homosexual."

As mentioned, Oprah made Charice a household name which led to the singer starring on Glee as Sunshine Corazon. Check out one the singer's show-stopping performances for Oprah, below:
