Becky G Reveals Her Relationship with Austin Mahone is on “Pause”

18-year-old singer Becky G recently opened up to Latina magazine about her relationship with fellow pop star Austin Mahone, who she dated through the spring and summer of 2015.

The pair met while working together on a track for The Smurfs 2, and were “just friends” for more than a year until things suddenly turned romantic. “I can’t tell you when or where, but it just happened,” she says.

“It kind of took me by surprise. For me, it was the first time dealing with being with somebody in the public eye. I thought, ‘OMG, I’m living the teenage dream, a pop star dating a pop star.’” Privacy, obviously, was an issue, especially since the blogs seemed to catch on mere moments after their first kiss. “He and I had to make a decision,” she says. “We were just like, ‘We’re together. We’re not going to hide it.’”

Becky revealed that her relationship with Austin got serious pretty quickly, with the singer even introducing Austin to her family:

“It was really funny because I have a big old Mexican family and he’s just a white boy from Texas,” she recalls. “He used to always tell me, ‘You know, I’m pretty Mexican,’ because he grew up in Texas, and I’m like, ‘No, you’re not, not until you meet my family, and they give you that cred.’ ” The opportunity finally came after their joint performance at the 2014 Premios Juventud. “I literally introduced him to one person after another, after another, and then I took him back to my dressing room and asked him, ‘Do you remember anyone’s name?’ And he was like, ‘No.’ ”

As for their split, Becky says: “We both really cared about each other, but we had to decide if we were going to stay in this until the wheels fall off and we hate each other, or if we’re going to put our friendship first,” says Becky with a maturity that stretches far beyond her age. “We both knew what was coming in our careers, and that we just have to press pause,” she says, adding, “for now.”

When asked about her last point, Becky smiles: “Yeah. Keyword: pause.”

    Austin Mahone caught hitting on A new girl, sheena harrell who joined twitter as an incredible goddess who is literally not from our world. According to google, She impersonates Michelle Obama. How did she get here ?? Im serious. Did we miss something ?? How is she listed in google with Justin Bieber, the biggest celebrity ever, and Joel Houston who leads worship for the band Hillsong United, and we not acknowledge “her look, “as in her face, as in her physical features, she is the hottest girl ever. Your telling me there isn’t an article about that?? I would write about this one, I mean Justin Bieber, Joel Houston and possibly Austin Mahone, I mean, that’s what gossip sites are about, right? I guarantee a big pull on your clientele, compared to the previous articles being written that “maybe” and “for sure” are based upon a lie.

    On a respectful level, it seems and looks like a real life “alien” docked into our world.

    i’m interested in this.
