Introducing Teen Vogue's September Cover Star, Becky G
At 10, Becky shot a KIDZ BOP commercial. In the 15 years since she’s starred in episodes of Empire, Machine Gun Kelly’s Good Mourning film, and the 2017 live-action Power Rangers as Trini Kwan, the Yellow Ranger (a character this ’90s kid will tell you was coded as queer and a person of color, even on the playground, at least, in my school — the role many of us took on while our white friends called Pink). She released seven Billboard Hot 100 hit singles, across genres, in both English and Spanish, collaborating with everyone from Bad Bunny and Anitta to One Direction’s Zayn Malik and country mainstay Kane Brown.
"The true artist at heart knows that I want to keep going. I want to keep learning. I'm that little sponge that just loves to absorb anything that I can, understanding the meaning and the why of something. And so, I'm excited for what's to come because I know that the opportunities can be made into something even more beautiful. It's humbling as hell."
