(Newser) – In the "Is This What the World Is Coming To?" Department: Filipino singing sensation Charice Pempengco, who became famous in the US after appearances on the Ellen and Oprah shows, prepped for her upcoming role on Glee by getting Botox...at the tender age of 18. She also had a skin-tightening procedure called Thermage to make her "naturally round" face narrower. She says she wanted “to look fresh on camera,” the AP reports.

“All people will be anticipating how will Charice look? Is she good enough to pit against Rachel Berry?” she says. “So of course there is tremendous pressure.” Click here for more on young celebs who are getting on the Botox bandwagon.
