We would just like to take a moment to say happy birthday to Charice Pempengco, our favorite coming-of-age teen phenom. I know, you thought that would've been Justin Bieber.
It might not be on par with the legalization of the Olsen Twins or what Miley Cyrus' November passing will be, but in our eyes, the media's pedophilic fascination has glaringly overlooked this young Filipina. Thankfully Oprah made us all aware of what we were missing.
So it is with great admiration we wish Charice a very happy 18th birthday. When you come back to NYC, we'll take you to some gay club with David Archuleta, then we'll go buy packs of cigarettes, or whatever you do as an adult waiting to turn 21. We forget.
