Becky G And Natti Natasha Ridicule The Role Of The Overly-Sexualized Latina In Their Latest Music Video

“It’s so sexy and empowering in a way where some people might feel uncomfortable, but I’m glad.”

In an artist on artist interview, Becky G and Natti Natasha sat down to discuss their latest collaboration on “Sin Pijama” and the personal problems they face as Latinas in the music industry.

If you aren’t already familiar with the storyline of the music video, it shows a man’s idea of a girls night in. In the video it is Prince Royce’s fantasy of what happens on those nights. The music video takes this fantasy to the ultimate extreme, featuring a large group of sexy women in lingerie having a massive party, including bottles of champagne, pillow fights and carousel horses, of course.

All of these sexy scenes in the music video build up to lead to a very different, yet totally realistic conclusion.

In the interview with Natasha, Becky G recalls some of her past experiences as an actor. She admits that she received scripts with character breakdowns that included “Latina […] sex scenes, or girl on girl kissing.” Every time she would receive these character descriptions, she would find herself asking, “Is there a real story to this?”

Becky G sensed that these scripts were written by men were only for the purpose of their own guilty pleasures and she never felt comfortable with that.

This is why Becky G and Natasha decided to take this character portrayal and create a satire of it in “Sin Pijama.” However, not everyone caught on to that…

A lot of the initial reactions to “Sin Pijama” were of disapproval, with comments such as the one above – but this isn’t anything new to Becky G.

After releasing her song “Mayores” in 2017, Becky G was asked to give a live, televised performance by a TV show in Spain. However, they required her to alter her lyrics because of “bad words” that the song had. Even though none of the lyrics in “Mayores” include any curse words, Becky G was asked to change a particular line in her song because it was inappropriately sexualized.

Becky G wasn’t happy with this requirement, but went on to alter her lyrics out of respect to the TV show. As a result, the televised performance began trending throughout the entire country because fans were upset that Becky G was required to change her lyrics. Fans found it to be sexist and degrading.

“Especially in Latin music, it’s hard for people to accept that women can own their sexuality,” Becky G commented. “My sexuality is me. You can’t tell me what makes me feel sexy.”

While Becky G is not comfortable playing the role of an overly-sexualized Latina in a script written by a man, she has no problem with being extremely sexy for herself and she made that clear alongside Natasha in “Sin Pijama.”

Natti Natasha Reveals Her Baby’s Name During Mother’s Day Concert

Natti Natasha continues to let her fans in on her pregnancy journey. During her Mother’s Day live-stream concert, the Dominican reggaetonera announced the name she has for her baby on the way.

In honor of Mother’s Day, Natti Natasha hosted a live-stream concert.

The mother-to-be hosted a special live-stream concert on Facebook Live last night. Natasha performed her biggest hits as the set around her changing seasons. In the fall setting, she sang her empowering ballad “La Mejor Versión de Mi” and “Antes Que Salga El Sol” sans Prince Royce.

In the summer setting, Natasha performed “Oh Daddy,” her tropical take on Chicano singer Ritchie Valens’ “Donna,” and her breakthrough hit “Dutty Love.” During the fall set-up, Natti sang “No Me Acuerdo” sans Thalía and a version of “Sin Pijama” without Becky G.

Natti Natasha also revealed her baby girl’s name while premiering a new song.

Natasha also premiered a new song live. She performed the song “Princesa” as a tribute to her daughter, Vida Isabelle. The touching performance was part of the set’s winter season. This will be her first child with Pina Records owner Raphy Pina.

Fellow Dominicano Romeo Santos wrote “Princessa” for Natti.

Aventura’s Romeo Santos wrote “Princesa” for Natasha. In his own post, he expressed his appreciation to all the mothers, including Natti.

“Thank you to Natti Natasha for singing a song that was born to me solely for her voice,” Santos wrote on Twitter. “You will be a spectacular mother and I already baptized the girl as ‘La Bebe Bachatera.'”

If Natti’s baby decides to go in show biz later on, mom will be behind her.

While promoting her new single “Ram Pam Pam” with Becky G last month, Natasha talked with mitú about her excitement over her pregnancy. If her baby wants to an artist in the future, Natti has no problem with that.

“I would let her,” Natasha said. “She can do whatever she wants. I did it anyways even if my parents didn’t want me to do it at the moment because they didn’t understand. I thank God I went through everything I went through so I could be there for her.”

Yes, Beyoncé Really Did Run Into Selena Quintanilla At A Mall Back In The Day

Part 2 of Netflix’s “Selena: The Series,” is currently streaming, which means fans of the late Tejano singer are getting a chance to learn more about her origin stories. In the second part of the series, fans can expect to see more of the icon’s tragically brief but beautifully successful life. The new episodes chronicle Selena Quintanilla’s rise as a superstar and will no doubt make fans of the singer feel a deep sense of love for her.

Particularly when it comes to one episode in particular!

Part 2’s episode 6, called “Lo Más Bello,” sees the lives of two superstars collide.

The endearing episode sees Selena, played by Christian Serratos, on a shopping trip to an outdoor mall with her mother and sister. It’s then that the young singer catches the eye of a young girl who is also with her mother and sister.

Perhaps it’s real seeing real, but in either case in this episode, the young girl stops to gaze at Selena. She’s star-struck. In the episode, the young girl’s mother asks who she’s looking at and the girl replies, “Selena, a famous singer. Be quiet!”

Knowing that her daughter is a singer herself, the mother encourages her to introduce herself. Of course, the young girl is too shy to say hello but she does wave.

When Selena walks away, the young girl’s mother reveals a fun twist when she says “Beyoncé Knowles, you better learn not to be afraid of people if you ever want to be famous too.”

Like we said…

Real recognizing real.

While it might seem like the producers took creative liberty, it turns out they actually didn’t. And it makes sense. Fans of Selena and Beyoncé know that the two singers are Texan-icons.

In a recent interview for MTV Trés, Beyoncé revealed that she actually did see Selena, in the Galleria Mall in Houston. “I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity,” Beyoncé said in an interview for MTV Trés back in the day. “I just saw her and said hello and kept it moving. Definitely growing up in Texas I heard her on the radio, and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

Fans of the Texan starlets might also remember how Beyonce, in a 2007 interview with People en Español, spoke about her love of Selena.

At the time, Beyoncée was celebrating her re-release of six Spanish-language tracks. “I listened to Selena all the time” she recalled at the time of the interview. “She’s close to me because of where I’m from.”

Both “Selena: The Series” Parts 1 and 2 are streaming right now on Netflix! Check them out!
