Becky G: The Woman Behind The Star
QUEEN OF THE STAGE
Becky G seems to be on top of the world! The 22-year-old Mexican American singer and actress is featured in People en Español's '50 Most Beautiful' issue and talked to the magazine about success, surviving fame and having a personal life.
PRETTY IN PINK
"I would say I got blessed with a really good jaw line. Yeah, I have a nice like profile!" the singer says about what she likes most about her reflection in the mirror.
"In this industry you’re constantly comparting yourself to the person next to you —or the person people are comparing you to— even your own self can be your own competition," the singer admits. "People are like: 'Wow, you got a billion views in one video' and they expect you to get a billion views in every video. And you forget that just getting the opportunity to do what you love to do every single day is success."
"There are no shortcuts in life, and your idea of success is what you want it to be," she says.
Finding true love in Argentinean football star Sebastian Lletget has been a blessing for Becky G.
She has recorded songs with Bad Bunny, JLO, Natti Natasha and Anitta, among others.
"There is no secret, it’s just hard work, dedication, lots of sacrifice and will and faith that everything is going to work out," Becky G says of the keys to success. "For me to get to where I am hasn't been easy."
"It's hard sometimes to realize how amazing it is when you're so close to the picture, but when I take a step back and see where we are as women in the music industry, it’s just an incredible movement that I —alongside some of my my fellow hermanas— I would say are pioneering and it makes me really proud," says Becky G (here with Natti Natasha).
BECKY FROM THE BLOCK
"If I’m not on stage, I love to eat," she admits with a laugh. "I love to be at home so I can sleep and eat."
MODERN DAY PRINCESS
Where does she see herself five years from now? "I would just hope that I have grown more as an artist, hopefully have more than one album out," she says. She also visualizes herself..."traveling the world, headlining my own tours and having a fashion line, directing my own movie. I feel like the sky is the limit!"
