The new Power Rangers movie is hitting theaters March 24 and everyone has been hyped for a long time. The reboot of the franchise has had Latinx fans screaming with Becky G cast as the Yellow Ranger. Now, just one week left before the movie’s release, we have learned a little bit more of Becky G’s character Trini.

Becky G is going to be grace movie screens across the country as the Yellow Ranger this Friday and we just learned something new about her character…

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, director Dean Israelite shared what he says is a “pivotal” part of the movie. It might be a small piece, admittedly, but it is part of the larger theme in the movie: finding yourself. People assume she’s having boyfriend problems, when in fact, she’s having “girlfriend problems.” According to THR, this is the first time we’ll see an openly gay superhero on the big screen. This is huge!

Director Dean Israelite let the world know that Trini (the Yellow Ranger) will have her own identity crisis like all the other characters.


According to Israelite’s interview with The Hollywood Reporter, all of the Power Rangers have to come to terms with who they are and own every part of themselves.

Trini has her own crisis that leads her to question one important part of her identity: her sexual orientation.

“For Trini, really she’s questioning a lot about who she is,” director Dean Israelite told The Hollywood Reporter about that “pivotal” moment. “She hasn’t fully figured it out yet. I think what’s great about that scene and what that scene propels for the rest of the movie is, ‘That’s OK.’ The movie is saying, ‘That’s OK,’ and all of the kids have to own who they are and find their tribe.”

People are hyped.


One Twitter user is happy to see Power Rangers one-up Disney with their LGBTQ representation.


It has convinced people to go out and see the movie.


Seriously, so many people are hyped about the inclusiveness of the new Power Rangers cast. Not only is Trini now a lesbian, she is Latina. The Blue Ranger is autistic and more than half of the leads are people of color.

Looks like Power Rangers might have a great opening weekend.


That is if tweets turn into legit moviegoers.

Breakups Are Messy, J.Lo’s Aftershocks Felt In Drake’s New Album “More Life”

In an album bursting with dope features, one anticipated voice was missing, but her presence was felt throughout: Jennifer Lopez.

In “Free Smoke” the first song of the 22-track album, which dropped on OVO Sound radio this Saturday, Drake raps: “I drunk text J.Lo/ Old number, so it bounce back.” Ouch.

‘Twas only a few weeks ago when everyone was like “¿Qué qué?” when Drake popped up in romantically-lit photos with Queen of the Bronx, Jennifer Lopez.

You’d be smiling that hard, too, if your teenage crush turned around and made you their #MCM.

They shared lovey-dovey smirks in a two-person sweater-blanket bathed in the light of a fireplace made by angels.

But if he only knew what the future held, *he* might have held on tighter.

And fans declared them “Prom King and Queen of Pop,” as we watched them dance quinceañera-style in what looked like a music video shoot.

I hope footage of this party ends up in a future music video, where he’s watching old home movies and crying into his hot cocoa.

In this video, the once-couple is dancing to the new hot track “Get It Together,” with what sounds a lot like Jennifer Lopez vocals.

The album version however, features, Jorja Smith doing a beautiful job, hitting some real silky notes. Did Drake get salty and cut J.Lo off the album after seeing her with Alex Rodriguez?

The most obvious nod to J.Lo is a song using the chorus of her hit “If You Had My Love.” The new song is titled “Teenage Fever,” which is appropriate if you consider teenage Drake watched her rise to stardom.

Seems like she’s always had a big impact on his life. Poor #Draque.

Now all we’re left with are the ‘what ifs.’

Will we ever get a pop duo?!

What do you think? Was Drake salty, so he cut J.Lo from the album? Or are their collaborations still in the work? Share this with links below!
