I recently bought a radio for my house because I had way too many CDs I didn't want to give up. I hate tuning in to most FM stations because a person should only have to listen to that same Iggy Azalea song, no matter how fun it is, no more than 50 times a day.
But the other day as I was jamming while cleaning the house, I heard this tune that had me dancing and quickly singing along. I ran to Shazam it and it didn't surprise me at all that the song, "Shower" was by one of my favorite up-and-coming stars, Becky G!
I caught up with the petite Mexicana, who was just in Miami to perform at Univision's "Premios Juventud" and at the Fontainebleau South Beach for Y-100's "Mackapaloosa." Check out what she had to say about heading on tour with Katy Perry, her favorite beauty tip, and what she loves to do when she's in Miami.
"Shower" is my favorite hit of the summer! Why should this track be on rotation on everyone’s playlist?
"Thank you so much! 'Shower' is the perfect summertime jam. Whether you’re in the car with friends, on the beach or getting ready for your day, it sets the tone for a fun filled summer. And who doesn’t like singing in the shower?"
I just saw Katy Perry when she brought the Prismatic Tour to Miami. I hear you'll be joining the tour in October. How excited are you?! What are you most looking forward to?
"I seriously cannot wait to join Katy on tour! It’s going to be so much fun to join my fellow COVERGIRL and to see all my Beasters and the Katy Kats together in one place! Being Mexican-American, I am most looking forward to performing in Mexico, it’s truly a dream come true for me."
Speaking of Katy, I'm obsessed with her #instaglam line! Are there any products from the collection that you've added to your cosmetics bag?
"OMG I am obsessed with the #instaGLAM collection from COVERGIRL! Some of my go – to’s are the Cololorlicious Lip Glosses, they have an awesome color payoff and are super moisturizing. I also love the Ready Set Gorgeous foundation—it’s nice because its lightweight and hides shine."
The last time we spoke, you told me you were doing all your makeup when you toured with Austin Mahone. What are some of your favorite tips/tricks you can share?
"It’s no secret that I love a cat eye! Start with Bombshell ShineShadow by LashBlast in a shade of your choice, my personal fave is the Gold Goddess, and then finish the look with COVERGIRL’s Bombshell Intensity Liner in Pitch Black Passion. The precise tip helps me draw a straight line… but don’t sweat it if they aren’t totally even either—no one can get it perfect every time!"
We love having you visit us here in Miami. What are some of your favorite places to visit when you're in town?
"It wouldn’t be a trip to Miami without going to South Beach! I can’t wait to hit up all the shops, restaurants and of course the beach."
