“They are a power and a force like you’ve never seen before, and no one can ever take them down, the power likes on their side! Go, go Power Rangers!” That is what every grown person in America will be singing on Friday when the highly anticipated Power Rangers movie reboot makes its debut! The original characters, Jason, Zack, Billy, Trini, and Kimberly will be played by a new cast as high school outcasts defending the world.
We love all of the actors in their new roles, but we are currently crushing on only one of them–Becky G!
Yep, this week’s #CelebrityCrush is none other than the new Yellow Ranger! Born, Rebecca Marie Gomez, Becky G., may be new to the superhero movie scene, but she is no stranger to the entertainment industry at large. The singer-songwriter has collaborated with artists like will.i.am, Cody Simpson and Cher Lloyd. Her first official single, Becky from the Block, garnered rave reviews. She then released her debut extended play, Play It Again, later that same year. Her second single, Can’t Get Enough, featured vocals from Pitbull and topped the Latin Rhythm Airplay chart in the United States! Last year she released a single Sola, which is set to headline her upcoming debut album!
Besides having the voice of an angel, Becky certainly looks like one! The girl makes us go gaga over her eyes, hair, and body. It may be hard to believe she is the new Yellow Ranger, but we should not count her out. Trini Kwan (Thuy Trang) was quite the bad ass in the original Power Rangers series and we are sure Becky will live up to that mantle. As Trini she will be the superhero movie genre’s first openly gay superhero, as we will find in the second act of the film that she is questioning her sexuality! Besides seeing more of Becky’s legs we are definitely hoping to see her kick some alien ass this Friday and we cannot wait for her album to drop! Expect a review!
