Quote Of The Day

"I think its a beautiful thing that 13 years later shes even more powerful as far as her name and her music just carrying on, and that i think is a beautiful thing. A lot of children come here to the museum that weren't even born when Selena was alive and they speak of her as if they know her, and that comes from their parents. In a weird kind of way it's a little southing to my soul to know that she is not going to be forgotten. As a person and also as an artist."

- Selena's sister, Suzette Quintanilla, tells Para Todos magazine

  6. 6

    I love her. She's always been a great person in my eyes. Rest In Paradise sweetie.



  7. 7

    Selena had a vision, a goal and was on her way to accomplishing it…THAT's why is was great. I never cared too much for the whole Tejano music (although Bidi Bidi Bom Bom was catchy) but I can definitely see what a success she truly was.

    PS I am one of those who told all my younger nieces about her, took them to Corpus Christi too, lol.



  8. 8

    RIP Selena is my idol



  9. 9

    LOVE HER!!!!! SELENA 4EVA!



  10. 10

    is she saying that because of selena gomez?! Yea selena was awesome. She died on my birthday. Hated that …… R.I.P selena



  11. 11

    She was a flash in the pan that was snuffed out too soon. So what? This happens every day in the real world. Why are you elevating her to such a level? There are 1000 people out there who did more, gave more than Selena and were killed. I just don't think you need to be bringing this back up again.



  12. 12

    RIP Selena…



  13. 13

    Selena will always be remembered… she's huge in Texas and everywhere i got i can always hear one of her songs playing… RIP Selena :)

    we love you selena you have never been forgotten!



  18. 18

    I listen to Selena everyday. I remember when Entre a Mi Mundo came out, every latino had a Selena pic or poster on there living room wall like she was family,lol. Then when Amor Prohibido came out she changed the game forver.



  19. 19

    Selena will never ever be forgotten. I loved her, being a latina myself. Viva Selena!!! oh yeah 18th bitches?



  20. 20

  21. 21

    Oh Perez, best quote of the day ever! You don't know how happy it makes me to see someone recognizing the amazingness of this woman even so many years later..I hope no one ever forgets her. She had such a huge impact on my upbringing, something my friends and family never understood. I even have a huge rose tattoo tribute covering half my forearm to prove it! You rock Perez, thanks for recognizing greatness when you see it.



  22. 22

    This has nothing to do about selena gomez. Don't even bring her up! She will never be at her level!
    Selena did not deserve to be killed by a member of her fan club. Viva Selena!!!



  23. 23

    You people are idiots! None of you even knew who she was until Jennifer Lopez was in a movie about her. I'm from Corpus Christi and no one here even knew who she ws until she was killed. If she had been an ugly fat chick with the same voice and so called "popularity" then no one would even care that she was dead. People see a movie and all of a sudden they're fans from birth. The same goes for Jim Morrison. If Val Kilmer hadn't played him no one under the age of 50 would have ever given a damn about him. The Doors suck and Selena sucked, too. You are all sheep. You only like someone when you think it is hip to. No one really likes Amy Winehouse. They just pretend to in front of their friends so they will fit in.



  24. 24

    there's is something humble and clean about Selena Gomez, and I'll support her. though she'll make mistakes cos she is so young, I hope that she will keep herself from the feud with Cyrus and concentrate on her art! this clashing story between the two makes money for some not the others but mainly it is empty!

    25

    aww I'm still a huge fan but I cant stand her family, they are still milking the cow and keep realising album after album.



  26. 26

    novel1 ur stupid. her music is sensational. she was a big part in alot of ppls lives. Shes left her mark on the world and thats why we still continue to talk about her.

  27. Midna says – reply to this


    27

    Re: cjatnac – fuck off moron she was huge in méxico aswell, I met her at the end of one gig. Just cause you live in the same town as she did doesn't make the #1 fan.



  28. 28

    She would have been a super star. I still love her timeless music, she was a classic.



  29. 29

    I love Selena so much that I am naming my daughter Selena after her. Her music is wonderful and I'm so glad that still to this day people still love her she will live on forever.



  30. 30

    Viva Selena :)



  31. 31

    Re: cjatnac
    Umm you are wrong..Sorry you have so much anger in you, i hope you will soon find peace :)



  32. 32

    she died when i was about.. like 1 year old. ive never really know her but i got to know her through her music. and to cjatnac : you're retarded. sure people like the movie selena by j.lo, but people who saw the movie allready knew selena, retard. oh woow youre from where shes from. who cares. i live like 2 minutes away from THE MEDIC DROID ( whom i love ) and i dont even know them. though i love their music, so no - youre not a number 1 fan, youre a number 1 psychotic bitch who could have been yolanda's spawn. eat it bitchola.



  33. 33

    I LOVE SELENA !!!!!!!!! RIP. I am not even spanish… nor do I remember when she was alive, but they still play her songs from time to time… and learned about her and I LOVE SELENA !!!!



  34. 34

    Selena still lives through her music that will always be fabulous and her legacy will live on for years and she will keep gettin new fans as she deserves REST IS PIECE SELENA!



  35. 35

    selena forever! this post warmed my heart. thanks perezito. she was an amazing spirit.



  36. 36

    Re: cjatnac – You are mean as hell man. Its obviously hard for some people to be aware of someone like Selena if she wasn't famous all around the world. I personally like Latin/South American music and I like Selena. I knew who she was before I saw that movie in which J-Lo played her. You are out of order for being so outwardly judgmental. I do agree with you partially about people being fickle about what they like, but still, you were not nice about it.

    James



  37. 37

    Selena was an amazing artist! what she did 15 years ago many artists are doing now. She did the singer/actress/clothingdesigner/perfume creator/crossover way before anyone else! Thanks perez for featuring her on your web-site. anyone can learn many things about Selena! she was amazing!



  38. 38

    Re: Golden Gery – We are not talking about Selena Gomez though are we.



  39. 39

    Re: eliazar – haha!!! that's awesome. brilliant!



  40. 40

    Her family should be PROUD of Themselfs, too!!!!



  41. 41

    So beautiful and talented!



  42. 42

    Re: cjatnac
    Hey, I agree with you!
    1) It's only because she's dead, like any other mediocre star who suddenly
    becomes a 'saint' if they die
    2 It also shows the talent pool is dried up, if there's been no one else after
    all these years



  43. 43

    PART 1—- CONTINUED ON THE NEXT PAGE Re: cjatnac – JUST BECAUSE YOUR INGNORANT AND ARE NOT INFORMED ABOUT THE MEGA STAR THAT LIVED IN YOUR OWN CITY. WHICH BY THE WAY YOU PROBABLY NEVER GOT TO APPRECIATE BECAUSE OF YOUR POOR TASTE IN MUSIC.

    YOU MUST HAVE BEEN LIVING UNDER A ROCK. THEY MUST HAVE HAD YOU LOCKED UP PROBABLY BECAUSE AGAIN OF YOUR IGNORANCE…….

    I SAW SELENA 3 TIMES IN CONCERT. I HAD THE FORTUNE OF GETTING TO SEE THE LEGEND ON STAGE. SHE WAS PART OF THE HUGE CHARRO DAYS FESTIVITIES HERE IN MY HOME TOWN ONE YEAR. I ALSO GOT TO SEE HER AT THE AGE OF 16 ACROSS THE BORDER IN MEXICO FIVE MINUTES FROM WHERE I LIVE.

    NOW YOU TELL ME. IF NO ONE KNEW WHO SHE WAS HOW DID YOU BREAK THE RECORD OF ATTENDANCE AT THE ASTRO DOME JUST WEEKS BEFORE HER DEATH?

    YOUR SAYING NO ONE KNEW HER…. I AM NOT A FAN OF JENNIFER LOPEZ AFTER HAVE SEEN SELENA IN HER GLORY I CAN HONESTLY TELL YOU THAT JENNIFER DID NOT COME CLOSE TO SELENA IN ANY WAY.



  44. 44

    Re: cjatnac – CONTINUED PART 2

    JENNIFER LACKED ALOT IN THE DANCE DEPARTMENT. ALOOOOOTTTTT NO MATTER HOW GOOD OF A DANCER JEN IS SELENA'S TALENT WAS NATURAL AND UNREHEARSED. SHE NEVER TOOK A DANCE LEASON IN HER LIFE.

    NOW cjatnac STOP BEING INGNORANT AND STOP MAKING PEOPLE THINK YOU ARE INGNORANT. IT IS NOT EVERYONE ELSES' FAULT THAT YOU DID NOT KNOW WHO SELENA WAS UNTIL YOU SAW THE MOVIE.

    AGAIN IF NOONE KNEW WHO SHE WAS THAN HOW DID SHE BREAK THE RECORD OF ATTENDANCE IN HOUSTON MONTHS BEFORE SHE DIED? THAT RECORD HAS NOT BEEN BROKEN SINCE.

    NO SEAS PENDEJO. Y PIENSA LO QUE DICES ANTES DE ABRIS TO BOCOTA!!! GENTE COMO LE DA MAL NOMBRE A NUESTROS HERMANOS LATINOS.

    UVICATE Y EDUCATE ANTES DE HABLAR!!!!!!!!!



  45. 45

    Selena we love you and your legacy lives on.no matter what we'll never forget you.You're my idol and i love you always!



  46. 46

    Oh lord here we go again with SELENA!! I don't understand why when these celebrities die they are just the biggest thing to have ever lived and ppl claim how sweet and nice they were that's pure BS!! she was a big fake she couldn't even speak spanish but these dumb asses here think she was Gods gift to Cumbia music, Cumbia music sux it's the same song over and over with the one chorus repeated over and over again…The dad is probably happier she died cuz he keeps pumping out "greatest Hits' albums year after year and ppl keep buying them!!! Then you got J Lo riding on her coat tails after the movie, she isn't talented either!! That just goes to show you how quick people are to follow any mediocre "celebrity"



  47. 47

    Re: jlenoconel – I believe the only reason why selenas sister even said what she said is because selena gomez made it clear where she got her name from. So from what i can see thats about the only reason why her sister feels like selena hasnt been forgotten. No one has talked about selena at all in the media until selena gomez popped up.



  48. 48

    Love all the wonderful comments about Selena, and as for the haters, keep hating! Selena accomplished more in LIFE than any of you haters will! She was a grammy winning artist who really made it cool to be latino! She will NEVER be forgotten! Her beautiful voice and amazing songs will love on forever

    Love you, Selena!



  49. 49

    Is she the chick from Ugly Betty?



  50. 50

    Not 'a little southing', but 'SOOTHING', mang!



  51. 51

    Selena was a queen I will always love her and the music she made! Selena will always be in the hearts of her fans, we'll never forget her… and Jennifer Lopez should count herself as lucky to be allowed to make her breakthrough into acting as such a beautiful and giving person as Selena, too bad JLo didn't take more notes and practice the same principles in her own career.



  52. 52

    Re: lizzzz

    Selena had mastered the spanish language before her death, learn your facts dear.



  53. 53

    everyone of my sisters carries a poster of selena in their room and we have taped pretty much everything that they have showed on tv also purchased all the cassettes and dvds and after so many years we still watch them as if they came out yesterday



  54. 54

    nice



  55. 55

    Re: Midna – I'm not a fan you tool. That was the point.



  56. 56

    I love you selena!



  57. 57

    thanks so much Perez for keeping her memory alive! she is a legend. hope to see more posts in the future. thanks so much..this makes my day!



  58. 58

    Re: cjatnac

    If your not a fan then why waste your time replying? We dont care about your negative comments, until you accomplish everything she did you have no room to criticize her. When she was alive she could easily pull crowds of 100,000+ I doubt even 20 people would come and watch your lame ass, and its not even that you left a "bad" comment you are being straight up disrespectful. Please just move on and go away



  59. 59

    Its gonna be like 50 years later and people are still gonna remember her. she was an awesome person. who didn't deserve to die.
    ooh well.

    R.I.P SELENA.

    Re: lizzzz

    OH stfu please.



  61. 61

    omg i will always love selena….
    she was such an inspiration to everybody that heard her story….
    and heard her music…
    i was 8 when she died && cried for 2 days straight…
    and i still get a little teary eyed…
    she was so beautiful && talented….

    RIP selena



  62. 62

    Re: lizzzz – f u ya dumb slut….ya jealous piece of crap



  63. 63

    I remember the day she died. :[ I was in third grade. I was supposed to go see her that year at the Tejano Music Awards with my mom. I cried a lot, too!



  64. 64

    TO cjatnac=IQ[23]
    :l
    Beware of nosebleeds - sitting so high on your horse. You have some nerve to criticize Selena Quintinalla Perez. Unlike you, she was a kind person, a caring person. I never knew who she was until the news of her murder, and then Jennifer Lopez playing her in the movie, because it is not my region or style of music. But, I am happy to know of her. She was ambitious, and loyal, and she accomplished alot in her short life.
    :l
    cjatnac - what are your virtuous characteristics AND what have you contributed to your culture and your generation?
    :l



  65. 65

    I was 3 when Selena died but I really appreciate her music now. I wish she was still alive because she was amazing… RIP



  66. 66

    Re: cjatnac

    1. CJ just because YOU didn't know who she was doesn't mean she wasn't popular amongst her TARGET AUDIENCE which were Mexican Americans not YOU. (she wasn't even aiming for regular Mexicans in Mexico, her niche was VERY VERY SPECIFIC = Mexican Americans)

    2. She sold out the Houston Astrodome and broke the record of attendance when she was ALIVE not dead.

    3. She was the 4th richest woman in TEXAS *BEFORE* she died

    4. She won a Grammy **before she died**

    5. She won 8 *years* in a *row* best Tejano Female at the Tejano awards which was the demographic she and her record company were aiming for.

    6. She had endorsement deals with COKE and other major brand names **before** she died

    7 . CJ, she was on her way up, not everyone knew her because she was aiming for a particular audience, however her ENGLISH album was going to aim for the masses and not just Mexican Americans

    8. LILYOFTHEVALLEY - YOU ARE RIGHT ON ABOUT J-HOE AND ABOUT SEL. IF IT WASN'T FOR GOOD EDITING IN POST PRODUCTION OF THE FILM J-HOE WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN ABLE TO LOOK LIKE SHE COULD DANCE LIKE SEL

    9. Last night I spent like 4 hours looking at interviews and videos on youtube on Selena - I love youtube :)

    The spelling and grammar on your website is getting progressively worse -
    "it's a little "southing" to my soul?
    I can understand your readers not knowing how to spell but you and your staf should. Seems like you are in such a hurry to get stuff on to the site that nobody is spell/grammar checking.
    Colleen and Uptown also noticed this error.
    BTW who is/was this Selena?



  68. 68

    RIP. I ♥ Selena!



  69. 69

    lizzzz=IQ[46] - That just goes to show you how quick people are to follow any mediocre "celebrity".
    :l
    You mean, like you, lizzzz…… following Perez Hilton, the most mediocre "self-invented celebrity."
    :l
    Having an opinion is one thing, but speaking "hateful" about deceased people is very disrespectful and mean and unkind, unless she was someone who hurt people, and Selena was not. She was kind and caring and loyal. That you would need to argue that she did not deserve praise for her valuable life, is redundant, because you are not a valuable life.
    :l



  70. 70

    Selena ¡Vive!



  71. 71

    Thank you for putting Selena on here (and not the Gomez one). Selena was and still is a beautiful person and she is missed so very much by me and my daughter. She is and will always be a positive role model for many of us, and Selena thank you from the bottom of my heart!

    I always enjoy the spelling errors, because I can pop them into Google and quickly see exactly which site it is that PIGperez "stole" the article and the photographs from.
    :l
    This particular article and photograph was stolen by PIGperez from celebrity_twit.c_om (remove underlines).
    :l
    And I always LOL when people respond as though they think they are reading the words and opinions of PIGperez.

  74. 74

    Wow I can't believe it's been 13 years…..she's the best. J.Lo would've never touched fame if Selena had still been around.

    :l
    Funny you should say that to cjatnac, because clearly that person has a level of self-importance that exceeds what would be justified; as does Perezite, and you can check out this Youtoob vid to back that up; which not only puts Perezite in his place, but maybe can teach cjatnac to shut mouth, or you will find that people will go out of their way to humiliate you, as well.

    You spelled scatherbrain wrong [it's spelled s-c-a-t-t-e-r-b-r-a-i-n], you spelled staf incorrectly [it's spelled s-t-a-f-f], and you forgot to close your quotation marks. [So as not to embarrass you further, I inserted the comma in front of the word "but" for you].

    Selena was an all around good person, you can see in her eyes that she had a good heart. She was also a great artist and a beautiful woman. R.I.P. Selena

    The rule of thumb is simple: those you EXPLAIN the business to will probably not join, and those you SHOW the website to and take on a TOUR of the website probably will join. Give it a chance and take a look at the overview. Earn cash back on your purchases at over 600+ retail stores! Go to shoptoearn.net/klchadwick or shoptoearth.net/klchadwick , click on my picture on the bottom left and then click on the overview at the top right. No selling or inventory involved! Not a get rich quick scheme. Take a look for yourself at the huge retail partners! Give it a chance, go to my site and email me with any questions. I will show you the actual checks of friends that have made some pretty decent money in just 30 days from referrals and bonuses plus shopping online. It is worth the time to give it a shot and ask yourself, “Why not?”. Ask me a question and I will give you an honest answer. I joined Shop to Earn as a web site broker in order to save money on my online purchases and to make money from referral bonuses. My goal is to introduce at least ten people into this business opportunity within the next month. I am on disability and want to supplement my income in order to help pay for my medical bills from a recent spinal fusion. That’s about as honest as it gets!

    I was in college and would get home late at night.

    She would be on, as I flipped through the channels. I only know some spanish, however she was so talented that you could not help but watch her.

    I still can't believe her manager killed her. What a loss



  84. 84

    Thanks Perez for keeping Selena's memory alive! She was truly amazing and such a role model.

  92. 92

    I always thought it was weird that they created a statue of Selena in my hometown. I never understood why. I mean no one knew who she was until she died.



  93. 93

    Re: Lola Von Deadly

    Lol, your an idiot. Just someone else trying to stir the pot! Millions of Latinos knew who Selena was before her death and her English album would have been the album that would make her internationally known, which it did but she wasnt here to enjoy it and as a matter of fact she only was able to record 3 songs for it. I could list all the things she accomplished before her death but many above me have already done that so I will just end it with a quote from the lovely Eva Longoria

    "I’m from the same hometown, Corpus Christi. I didn’t know her but every month we would go see her play. She was such a local heroine. She would be the J.Lo of today had she lived. She was doing the clothing line and the beauty boutiques and the singing and the acting way before anybody else. She would have been bigger than life. She was truly talented."

    Amen!

    Siempre Selena, forever loved, never forgotten.



  94. 94

    SHE WAS A TRUE INSPIRATION TO WOMAN EVERYWHERE..SHE HAD A DREAM AND FOLLOWED IT…A BEAUTIFUL SOUL…
