When did the EMAs hosting provide come in and what was your response?
It turned into pretty recent. There were already talks about my participation within the display, and once the ideas were thrown out, they said, “Why don’t we just have Becky host?” I turned into geeked out. It became insane.
Are you feeling anxious approximately the task at hand?
I don’t need to sound too large-headed, but I commenced operating in the industry at a totally younger age, and I’ve had the pride of being part of plenty of cool award shows. So I feel that a variety of the possibilities I’ve had in the past have organized my grade by grade for what will be one of my largest reviews yet.

Yes! Total freakout moment! I had no idea that became coming. I’ve been living inside the Latin World for the last 5 years so I hadn’t seen my name aspect by using facet with Anglo artists in a minute like Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello, so that’s pretty rad.

I will supply all the credit scores to J-Hope on this. He became the one that located me; He had the tune; He had been looking to launch it before he had even delivered it to me and my team. Being part of this entire Latin motion, it’s very just like what’s occurring with K-Pop. It’s taking over, and it’s a movement that is clearly showing the sector that track is a well-known language.
Speaking of typical languages, what do you suspect it’s far approximately Latin beats that attract those in other genres like pop, R&B, and hip-hop?
It is going returned to the tune being for every person. One factor that I love so much approximately my Latino way of life is that we adore sharing everything — our song, our food, we’re like family. People can clearly experience that our music is meant to be enjoyed in the masses, whether or not it’s own family parties, a club, concerts or fairs.
At the EMAs, you’ll be representing Mexican-Americans and Latinos. What impact do you assume it to have?
This is large. It’s a massive possibility for me to maybe reintroduce myself to English-speaking audiences: “This is who I am now, this is what I am as much as.” Also, it’s putting myself in a distinctive mild. Many people have visible me as an actress, as a singer, as a rapper, and now they’ll have seen me as a host.
