Jasmine Villegas continues to blow up in the music scene, and the beautiful pop singer honors her Latina roots as part of the reason for her creative drive. Jasmine has quickly earned her respect in the music business since the release of her successful mix tape, She Believed.
Here's what the talented star told Latina exclusively about what it means to be Latina, "I love being Latina. My culture has always influences me. I feel everybody should embrace his or her culture, and I do." Jasmine also adds how her culture has served as a muse, "It’s part of who I am and it’s part of my music and I’m definitely going to keep putting that into my music. I’m going to keep reaching out to my Spanish fans, and my Filipino fans and my Mexican fans, everything because I feel like that’s a big part of who I am."
She premiered the first interactive video of its kind for her new single about making up and breaking up titled, "Just a Friend" a few months back, and recently posted an in-studio session with Tyra for her new track, "So Silly."
