That’s one big snake! Latin pop signer Becky G has taken a page out of Britney Spears’ book for her Premios Juventud performance by paying homage to the icon’s legendary ‘Slave 4 U’ dance with a massive python! You’ve got to see the crazy video, here.
Becky G, 19, pranced around stage during her performance of her hit song “Sola,” in Miami at Univision’s version of the Teen Choice Awards on July 14, and we have to say it was AWESOME. Not only was she joined on stage by some sexy hunks covered in tattoos, but she was also holding a large, yellow snake – an obvious ode to Britney Spears’ iconic “Slave 4 U” performance at the 2001 VMAs!
Just like Brit, Becky G started the show in a dimly lit cage, joined by a dancer embracing the jungle vibes and climbing around the cage. She slowly descended, removing a sparkly chain-mail bolero, to show off a super hot body suit underneath! After some pretty sweet dance moves, Becky G runs to a dancer holding a – SHOCKER – Burmese python.
While Becky G didn’t handle the snake nearly as comfortably as Britney did, she still got it around her neck and walked across the stage before handing the creature back to a dancer. We can’t blame her for the struggle, according to National Geographic, those species of snakes can weigh up to 200 pounds! Looks like Becky G has earned some super strength while filming the Power Rangers reboot.
In the film, due out in 2017, Becky G plays the Yellow Ranger Trini, which she has been quoted raving over her sleek yellow costume! “I’m gonna wear it for Halloween for, like, five years,” the singer told Entertainment Weekly.
Premios Juventud was hosted by Shadowhunters actress Emeraude Toubia and actor William Levy, and it included performances by Pitbull, Enrique Iglesias, Maluma and J Balvin. But, the hot topic of the night was definitely Becky G’s killer performance!
