MANILA, Philippines -- Singer Charice, who admitted on "The Buzz" that she is a lesbian, revealed that she has a crush on fellow singer Sarah Geronimo.
"Kasi po siyempre she's pretty, bonus na 'yon, we all know that. Pero ang talagang napakabait niya and I know na dinifend niya ako," Charice said in an interview on Tuesday during the launch of the Yahoo! OMG Awards 2013.
Geronimo first met Charice when she hosted the ABS-CBN talent show "Little Big Star" in 2005.
Last April, Geronimo came to the defense of Charice, who drew negative reactions because of her look.
Charice, who is in a relationship with AKA Jam member Alyssa Quijano, said her girlfriend also has her own crush.
"Mayroon siya at mayroon din ako, para safe," Charice said.
In the interview, Charice also admitted that she's a fan of the openly gay Aiza Seguerra, who also expressed her support for the "Pyramid" singer.
"Idol ko talaga 'yon, si idol. Siya nga 'yung hinihintay ko na magsalita about this and she did and I'm very thankful. Miss Lea Salonga, BB Gandanghari, Ryan Seacrest... Maraming, maraming salamat lang po," she said.
On Twitter, Seguerra reminded Charice that no matter what happens she's now free.
"Ano man ang sabihin ng iba, masakit man at hindi maganda, lagi mong iisipin na ngayon, malaya ka na, " Seguerra tweeted.
