Jake Zyrus, formerly known as Charice Pempengco, shocked the online world a few months ago when he posted a selfie of him swimming topless on his Instagram account.

On his recent interview with Boy Abunda in the latter’s late night talk show “Tonight with Boy Abunda”, Zyrus shared the story behind the photo that he took when he was taking a dip at Anguib Beach in Sta. Ana, Cagayan.

Di pa game eh. Pero yung go pro atat. Kala mo tuloy naghahanap ng away. Hahaha! #anguibbeach

Zyrus admitted in the interview that he was hesitant at first to take the photo because he was insecure with his body.

“Sa totoo lang po, hindi po talaga ako mahilig sa beach. Takot ako na nakikita ako ng tao, insecure [kasi ako]. Parang feeling ko hindi ako makakapag-enjoy. But that day was different,” he narrated.

He continued by saying that he was wearing a tank top that day and had to ask his friends if it was okay to take it off.

“Una, tinanong ko pa sila kung okay lang ba na tanggalin ko ‘yung sando ko… They were all like, ‘Ano ka ba! Oo naman. Take it off!'”

Zyrus then shared that his experience made him feel secure about himself and the transition he has undergone.

“The moment I took it off, ‘yung moment na ‘yon, parang doon lang talaga ‘yung sobrang legit na naramdaman ko na ito na talaga ‘yon, ‘yung feeling talaga na wow, kumpleto na ako,” he said.

Jake previously admitted that he has undergone chest surgery last year.

According to the singer, he felt like a new person after the surgery.

Jake also said that the surgery has helped him achieve the toned muscular body that he aspires to have.
