Becky G Makes The Funniest Faces When She Isn’t Paying Attention And Here Is Proof

There’s nothing we like more than a hella expressive face. And Becky G? She always delivers. We’re here for her face and her aesthetic! We’ve done some digging and found some good pics, and some fast facts about our girl. So without further ado, feast your eyes on some stellar shots – or, uh, classic duck faces, double chins, and sassy eyes – from our fave, Becky G.

1. Her birthday is on March 2, 1997.

That makes Becky G a relatively freshly minted 22-year-old – and a Pisces. Deep down, she’s a sensitive, artistic soul. Although considering her musical and acting talents, her creative spark might not be that deep down.

2. Her official debut single was “Becky from the Block”.

It was released in 2013. That’s right friends, that was six years ago! The song’s music video was filmed in Becky G’s own neighborhood. Given that it is a cover of Jennifer Lopez’s 2003 hit, “Jenny from the Block”, Lopez herself appears in the music video, too.

3. Becky G has also cameoed on Empire.

She played the part of Valentina Galindo, who was introduced as a potential love interest for the main character, Hakeem Lyon. However, it was the shortest of romances, with Becky G finishing her stint on the show after two episodes. As part of her appearance on the Empire, Becky G contributed two new songs to the television show’s soundtrack: “Do It” and “New New”.

4. She was born in California.

Her parents and most of her family – brothers Frankie and Alex, and younger sister Stephanie – were also born in the US. In fact, Becky G’s parents were high school sweethearts, having met at Santa Monica High School. That being said, all four of her grandparents are from Jalisco, Mexico. 

5. She knew she wanted to be a singer when she was nine years old.

Becky G previously said in an interview that she attributes her desire to sing as the result of a “mid-life crisis”. Heaven help her when she actually reaches middle age! 

6. Her full name is Rebbeca Marie Gomez.

But don’t be mistaken – she’s of no relation to our girl Selena Gomez!

7. Becky G was homeschooled.

She started working part-time when she was nine years old, after her family lost their home due to financial issues and moved into her grandparent’s house. While she initially attended public school, she was bullied harshly for her work in the entertainment industry, which led her to being homeschooled.

8. She taught herself to play the guitar.

At the tender age of thirteen, she had started writing her own songs – and playing the guitar naturally accompanied that creative process. This was after Beck G had already dabbled in using GarageBand to release cover songs on Youtube.

9. While working on her debut album, Becky G released her first song.

Let’s face it, this girl is driven. She hadn’t even released a proper solo album, and was already snapped up to record music for a film soundtrack! “Problem”, featuring will.i.am, was created for the movie Hotel Transylvania. It was eventually used to promote the film, with both Becky G and will.i.am featured in the music clip.

10. Becky G previously served as brand ambassador for CoverGirl.

The makeup brand started their partnership with her in June 2014, which lasted for roughly two years. If you look closely at her music videos from around that time, you’ll see CoverGirl products featured in them. #productplacement

11. She performs with a real social conscience.

Becky G released “We Are Mexico” in 2015, after Donald Trump made derogatory comments against illegal Mexican immigrants. She used the song as a platform to open up a conversation about immigrants’ family values and dedication to hard work.

12. Becky G not only sings – she acts, too.

Instagram / @iambeckyg

Beyond her brief stint on Empire, she has also appeared in a feature film: the reboot of The Power Rangers that was released in 2017. She stole the show as the badass Trini Kwan, or, Yellow Ranger. This role marked a real departure from the original storyline of The Power Rangers, as Trini is shown to be queer in the film.

13. She once got pulled offstage by security during a performance.

Back in 2017, Becky G was confirmed as the opening act for Fifth Harmony during the Latin American part of their tour. While Fifth Harmony was performing in Argentina, our girl Becky G noticed that band member Dinah Jane was suffering from a wardrobe malfunction, and rushed onstage to cover Jane up with the country’s flag. Security mistook Becky G for a fan, and pulled her offstage!

14. Becky G suffers from anxiety.

Instagram / @iambeckyg

While touring with Fifth Harmony, there was an incident with fans grabbing at and harassing Becky G when she tried to leave her hotel. Panicked, Becky G fled. This led her to take to Snapchat to talk about what had happened, and explain that she suffers from anxiety.

15. Becky G is inspired by artists like Khalid and Normani.

“I think that they just have that thing that, you look at them and they know exactly who it is that they are, where it is that they wanna go,” she said in a recent interview with E! News, “And when I look at them … it’s intimidating but it’s also very inspiring.”

16. She has no problem sliding into those DMs.

… to get duets happening! Get your mind out of the gutter, please.

The makeup collection includes eyeshadows, matte and satin lipsticks, and highlighters.

Jennifer Lopez arguably became a household name after she portrayed Selena in the biopic about the iconic Mexican-American singer. Since then, J.Lo has become a musical, acting, and producing force in the entertainment industry. Now, at 50, the Puerto Rican superstar is on a new tour and fans in San Antonio were treated to a special cover when she belted out “Si Una Vez” by Texas legend Selena Quintanilla.

J.Lo really showed up for her San Antonio audience with her “Si Una Vez” song after admitting it was her favorite.

At the beginning of the video, J.Lo asks the audience if they want to hear a little Selena. Like, what kind of question is that to ask a Texas audience? Of course, they want to hear some Selena. After asking the crowd which song would be best she told them that “Si Una Vez” is her favorite and that sent the crowd into a frenzy.

Fans were so excited to learn J.Lo’s favorite Selena song because we all have one.

Hearts fluttered. Angels got wings. Moods were lifted. It was a physical moment for so many people who could feel the love from the stage. It was as if Selena was on stage in J.Lo’s body giving us the concert we have been craving.

While all of the concertgoers were melting down, social media people also lost their minds over the cover.

It’s like Thalía taking time during her concert to give the fans a taste of Jenni Rivera. Who wouldn’t want to be there for that moment? It feels like a special connection between the singer and the audience as they give praise and attention to a shared icon.

This is one way to ring in your 50th birthday, J.Lo.

Tessa Thompson Met A Mini Version Of Herself During ‘Men In Black’ Premiere

When the original “Men In Black” premiered in 1997, there’s no denying it was a mega box office hit. In fact, we’re a bit more surprised that it took this long for there to be another installation to the franchise. Now, 22 years later, the new version, fittingly titled, “Men In Black: International” the film is more inclusive, which is certainly appreciated in this day and age.

It’s because of this diverse representation that Latinas can see themselves on the big screen.

Last week, during the “Men In Black” premiere Tessa Thompson spotted a little girl who was dressed just like her in the movie.

Thompson recounted the moment on Instagram and discussed how much she’s been through with the filming of the movie and doing press all over the world. She said it was this moment that meant so much to her.

“These past couple weeks have been almost a blur— except, my favorite moment of all— meeting the one person I really made @meninblack for. Hers was the first face I saw when I arrived to the premiere— and it’s still on my mind. And what she said to me, I’ll never forget.”

This moment really signifies why representation matters so much.

Instagram/@tessamaethompson

People seem to forget how many others are excluded when we see a movie or TV show, so when you see a person that looks like you starring in a massive project, it’s an encouraging thing that means to so many. Now we’re wondering what that little girl said to her. Please tell us, Tessa!

Thompson’s role in the new “Men In Black” also came with a couple of changes including something she didn’t want to say just because Will Smith said it in the original.

Instagram/@tessamaethompson

Thompson said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter that she didn’t want the new movie to be too much like the old one, which makes sense especially because this is 2019! We don’t need to regress to 1997.

In the original movie, Smith says “I make this look good” after he first puts on his suit. Thompson said she would never say that line.

“I wouldn’t have said it. In fact, I think someone did ask me to — just as an option — and I said no. M [her character] is just different from that character [Agent J/Smith]. Yeah, I was really conscious of too much nostalgia. Also, inside of that, there were moments when I thought, ‘Let’s lean in.'”

Yes!! That is why we need more women of color in movies!
