Dev is the subject of an upcoming MTV special, dubbed simply ‘DEV,’ which airs May 23 at 11PM ET on the network. Why Dev? Well, she has quite a story: She’s been working her butt off to become a pop star (in her downtown L.A. digs) but then became pregnant last year.

In the trailer, Dev reveals that her parents had her at a young age, so “it’s like we grew up together,” since her dad does beer bongs in their small, Cali town.

Dev, who was discovered on MySpace (!!!) by the Cataracs, shares that she is living the dream “but I’m far from a pop star.” That doesn’t stop her from working her tail off to become a household name. Chances are, you know her songs – Far East Movement‘s ‘Like a G6′ sampled Dev’s ‘Booty Bounce’ and ‘In the Dark’ got a decent share of radio play — but you may not know her by face.

Dev also takes us through the preparation for the release of her debut ‘The Night the Sun Came Up’ and her unplanned pregnancy, which was high risk. Daughter Emilia arrived in December. Hope we get to meet her on camera.

Dev’s existence is interesting and she’s certainly worthy of her own MTV special.
