Sebastian Lletget and Becky G Have Been Together for Five Years Now!
To celebrate BoxyCharm’s partnership with Mexican-American singer Becky G’s cosmetic line Treslce and their “very nice” connection, the 24-year-old singer spoke to PEOPLE at Mercadito de Colores in Los Angeles. She also explained why her Treslce line wants to empower Latinx women like herself.
With her LA Galaxy player partner Lletget, 29, Becky says they regularly talk about their Latinx identities and how nice it is to see how he’s bonded with her family and friends.
“He is able to converse with my ancestors. It’s a nice little thing. You should try it, it’s a genuine treat “she explains. “It’s a different kind of relationship when someone can relate to your cultural background, in my opinion. Even yet, there are a plethora of distinctions within the Latinx community itself.”
“There’s a lot we can gain and share in terms of culture with one another. he’s now considered an honorary Mexican “she goes on, laughing, to say. “He is, in fact. My family is completely on board with him.”

Lletget’s “honorary Mexican status” may be placed on hold when the U.S. National Soccer Team takes against Mexico, though! (This summer, the two sides met in the Gold Cup.) Prediction: The United States defeated Mexico 1-0 in extra time.)
“Just to be clear: USA is not the only country that I’m supporting. I’m rooting for you to succeed. But if Mexico is defeated, I will be devastated!’ “she laughs, saying this.
“Many of our young people, especially Mexican-Americans, face this problem since we’re neighbors. In Los Angeles, we were Mexicans. The place was Mexico. As a result, we consider ourselves Mexicans.”
“I’ve always supported Mexico. the United States was never on my side “adds she “I guess,” I thought as my boyfriend started playing. Maybe.'”
For Becky G, the interplay of cultures, and her makeup brand in particular, is what sets them different. With successes like “Shower,” she claims she was frequently chastised by Mexican media for not speaking excellent Spanish, and the American media didn’t like it because she was “too Mexican.”
“We’re constructing a bridge, and every brick matters. It’s not without its challenges. The beginning of my career was fraught with identity conflicts as I was torn between feeling like I belonged in both the United States and Mexico “She states the obvious. “
‘It’s too tiring for me to be in the middle.’ How do I get by?'”
“Creating our own universe where we can be our authentic selves was a key lesson for me. the brand-new generation of Americans “adds she.
“Spanglish is how I imagine myself, and it’s what I hope for in my dreams. I dream in both English and Spanish. To tell our young people, “You must choose,” when we connect with both isn’t fair.”
Treslce’s purpose is to showcase other Latinx creators and to promote her culture with individuals outside the Latinx community, and she believes this is an essential part of that mission. You can get the BoxyCharm October basic box, which includes the cosmetic brand, for $25.
According to Becky G: “Creating Treslce, to me, was more of a dedication to the community, and being a vessel for other Latinx innovators and artists.”
“To me, Tresluce is an open welcome to everyone, not just those who live in the immediate area. Learn about us in a non-stereotypical, non-specific way. Authenticity.”

A lot of gender norms were imposed on what a lady is supposed to be and look like and sound like when I was a young Latina,” she continues. “Because of this, we’re putting our differences aside and working together to bust open those boxes. It’s strong, in my opinion.”
As a young girl, Becky G was a member of the CoverGirl family, and she has worked in the beauty industry ever since. It was a “major learning curve,” but it was also “one of the biggest privileges,” as she puts it. Prior to launching her own cosmetics line, she worked with ColourPop.
If you only want a Latina face for your firm, “I wasn’t interested in that,” she explains. As the artist put it, “It’s time to show that we deserve ownership and creation and that we can have our hands in everything.”
