Here Are 25 Of Selena’s Most Iconic Photos

The love for Selena runs deep. She is one of the few musicians who is so famous you only need to use her first name. (Sorry Selena Gomez.) From the moment she released her first album in the 1980’s, people went crazy for her and her music. Over 30 years later, Selena not only continues to maintain a strong group of fans, she continues to gain new fans every day. Whether it’s a wax figure, tribute concert, or impersonator convention, we love anything Selena. To prove it, here are 25 of our favorite Selena photos and lyrics.

 1. Beachy Selena

Selena Could Fall In Love and it looks like she did. Just like any of us, Selena looks like she loved going to the beach. She loved it so much that she couldn’t keep from dancing.

2. The Classic Selena Portrait

Selena’s smile is beautiful Como La(s) Flor(es) on her shirt y con tanto amor, she’d gladly sign autographs for her many fans.

4. Beauty Queen Selena



Selena looks like she’s ready for the Techno Cumbia. If you want to be anything like Selena, you need to know that if you don’t plan on partying and vienes a dormir, they’re going to tell you que salgas fuera de aqui.

5. Bedhead Selena

As you might have noticed, Selena loves to smile as much as we love seeing her smile. But, let’s take a moment and marvel at her beautifully curly hair.?

6. Coca-Cola Selena



Our parents might have told us not to drink any soda, but who can say no when Selena’s the one advertising it? Y cuando al fin estemos juntos los dos tres, you, coke, and Selena, no importa qué dirán tu padre y tu mamá.

7. Speaking of Amor Prohibido.



Whether it’s in the movie or in real life, we know this forbidden love caused some tension with Selena’s dad but look at how happy she looks. It even looks like Chris upgraded from La Carcancha (poco a poquito) to a new motorcycle.

8. Rebel Selena



How many times have your parents told you not to play with your food or blow bubbles with your gum? Well, Selena just didn’t care and lived life to the fullest.

9. Foto Y Recuerdo

Selena with her cousin is probably the cutest photo. This recuerdo is a great picture to look back on whenever her cousin misses her.

10. The Side Eye Look

We don’t know what she is thinking here but we can only assume that she is just basking in the love from her fans.

11. Serious Selena



The song is pretty clear, “no me vuelvas a llamar”. She can’t be any more blunt and yet, she’s giving us this face to make sure we know she means it.

With almost 2 million monthly listeners on Spotify, there are plenty of us Bidi Bidi Bom Bom-ing through her music.

15. Selena Tejana

This photo really shows Selena’s roots as a Tejana star. Selena embraced her Texan-Mexican-American roots in order to create iconic, timeless music.

16. Stage Selena

We’ve all seen videos of Selena performing live and it looks SO cool and fun. Anyone who had the chance to see her live is very lucky. This photo might not be from the Astrodome but I’m sure it was still the experience of a lifetime.

17. Como La Flor…

Is probably what she was singing in this photo. We’ve all seen her dancing hands and it looks like she’s getting ready for it.

18. Selena, Tu Solo Tu…

She really is the only one who can pull off such cool stage costumes. The only herida en mi corazon is the one caused by the fact that I was never lucky enough to see Selena live.

19. Studded Pants

Selena loved fashion and looked good anytime she was on stage. If I had to guess, I’d say she probably planned these cool pants all on her own.

20. Selena Was No Cobarde When On Stage

And she was right when she said “te vas a acordar bien de mi”. With such a strong personality and amazing music, who could ever forget her.

21. Purple Suit Selena

When Selena wore her purple costume, she didn’t know what an impact it’d have on future generations. Check out how Selena is still being remembered today.

22. Selena Signs

Another shot of her in her Como La Flor shirt but unlike real flowers or the love she sings about, the flowers on her shirt won’t marchitar.

23. Selena With Her Mom

Selena really loved her family and this photo shows that. Her parents offered so much support throughout her career.

24. Another Friendly Selena

Wherever she was, Selena was happy to be there and had a smile on her face. “Que creias, que me iba olvidar?” Is probably what that man says anytime someone brings up this photo. If I got to take a photo with Selena, I’d never forget.

25. Another Classic Selena

We had to end the list with one of our favorite album covers. This is a photo we’ve all seen countless times on the cover of Amor Prohibido. Anytime we see the album, esperamos ese momento en que escuchamos su voz and when we hear it, it’s still as great as it was the first time we heard it.

Selena continues to make moves on the charts decades after her death. The late-singer landed a No. 1 position on the Billboard Vinyl charts again because of her “Ones” rerelease.

Selena is on top of the charts again with an album rerelease.

“Ones,” a collection of Selena’s top hits, was re-released on vinyl and the rapid sale of the vinyl set launched the album to No. 1 on the Billboards vinyl chart. The chart has only been around for 9 years and Selena is already dominating.

People are very lucky to have received their limited-edition vinyl.

Who doesn’t like to experience Selena’s music on vinyl with a new crop top? It is the only correct outfit to wear when you are feeling yourself to the sounds of Selena.

Selena fans are so happy to see their favorite still making news.

It doesn’t take much to make Selena fans excited. It is easy to argue that the late-singer has a very excited and mobilized base of fans. People have kept her legacy and her fame alive all these years.

Now Selena fans want to see the rest of her albums re-released.

Just picture it. A world where you can get all of Selena’s albums released again as vinyl. What a wonderful world that would be, huh? Nothing like having a chance to buy more Selena merch because, tbh, you can never have enough.

Let’s take one more moment to admire this beautiful vinyl.

It is beautiful and glorious. The vinyl set is something we will always remember. Honestly, it is what la reina deserves.

Updated August, 17, 2020.

J Balvin is the latest celebrity to come forward with a Covid-19 diagnosis. He is part of a running list of Latino celebrities who are warning fans about the virus.

J Balvin has a message for all of his fans about the seriousness and dangers of Covid-19.

“At the moment, I’m just getting better,” J Balvin said in a recorded messages for the Premios Juventud. “These have been very difficult days, very complicated. Sometimes we won’t think that we’ll get it, but I got it and I got it bad.”

He added: “My message to those that follow me, young fans and people in general is to take care. This isn’t a joke. The virus is real and it’s dangerous”

Updated August 13, 2020.

Covid-19 is not done and we are seeing the proof everywhere we turn. Months after the pandemic, more and more people continue to fall ill with the virus and Antonio Banderas joins the pack.

Antonio Banderas shared the news on social media that he tested positive on his 60th birthday.

The iconic Spanish actor had recently celebrated his girlfriend’s 39th birthday before testing positive. Europe is currently dealing with a second wave from Covid-19 and officials are becoming concerned by the spread.

In his post, Banderas talked to his fans about the illness and how he didn’t feel sick, just more tired than normal. Yet, Banderas added: “I will take advantage of this isolation to read, write and rest, continue making plans to begin to give meaning to my newly released 60 years to which came loaded with desire and illusion. Big hugs to everyone.”

Banderas did not explain how he contracted the infectious disease, that as of 13 August 2020, has seen over 20.6 million cases reported across 188 countries. So far, the disease has killed more than 749,000 people.

Last year, Banderas (who is known for his roles in The Mask Of Zorro and The Spy Kids franchise) was nominated for an Oscar for his film “Pain and Glory.”

Original: As beaches, restaurants, and even bars and clubs started to reopen, it was easy to forget that we are still in the midst of a global health crisis – one that continues to hit the Latino community, in particular, very hard. And stars, they really are just like us. Celebrities are also at risk of contracting Covid-19 and over the last few days, we’ve learned that several of Latin music’s biggest stars have in fact been infected with the virus.

The news comes just as states like Florida, California, Arizona, and Texas set new records with sky-high infection rates. It’s an important reminder that nobody is immune to this pandemic and that we all need to do our part to keep our communities safe.

Several major Latin music stars have recently announced they’ve tested positive for Covid-19.

As if a reminder that stars, they’re just like us, several of Latin music’s biggest celebrities have announced that they’ve tested positive for Covid-19. Karol G, Prince Royce, and Chiquita Rivera have all shared their positive diagnosis for the virus and are urging fans to stay home and use masks when they have to go out.

Karol G took to Instagram Live to share the news of her infection with her fans.

During an Instagram live watched by more than 100,000, the “Tusa” singer said that she tested positive two or three weeks ago but had not made it public so her parents wouldn’t worry. “First of all, thank you to all the people that have reached out to me. I hadn’t said anything because my parents are far away and I didn’t want them to worry about me,” she says.

“Because my new single was coming out, I didn’t want coronavirus to be the news. Now that the news is out, my parents are very nervous and if it was under any other circumstance, they’d be here by my side.”

Karol G went on to say that she is feeling well compared to others who have been diagnosed positive. She was diagnosed with COVID-19 a few weeks ago with her friend and sister, and decided to isolate away from Anuel, who she confirmed tested negative. “I feel well. Today, I got another test and hoping this one will be negative.”

Chiquita Rivera also announced that her and her husband have also tested positive for the virus.

Just last week, Mexican-American singer Chiquis Rivera, the daughter of the late Jenni Rivera, revealed she and her husband Lorenzo Méndez tested positive for COVID-19. Also in an Instagram video, Rivera said “We’re contagious so we have to be responsible and we are going to quarantine.”

And Dominican Prince Royce announced he too had contracted Covid-19.

Prince Royce was one of the first celebrities to reveal his diagnosis. he shared he had tested positive for the virus shortly before the 4th of July holiday weekend and urged people to take precautions and be safe – for themselves and others.

In an Instagram video, he shared that he had gone out to restaurants since things had started to open up. He added: “Well, Florida hasn’t been so bad, and New York is the one with the problem. I fell for that and I think many people can fall for that and will fall for that. Don’t be selfish and make the same mistakes that I probably did.”

He urged his fans to do the responsible thing and stay at home.

“I was diagnosed with COVID-19 and I am on day number 12 since my symptoms began,” he wrote on Instagram. “My case has been mild and I am feeling well. I share this with you today to ask you please not let down your guard — this virus is very real and we can have it and spread it without even knowing. I didn’t think I had it as I didn’t feel that bad and had I not gotten tested I would be spreading it to others.”

His caption also added, “For younger people, this is more than just about taking care of ourselves, it is about taking care of others, older people and those with compromised immune systems. Please let’s take this seriously and act responsibly and with compassion. Let’s all take care of each other.”

Their infections come as the virus is raging out of control across the country.

New records are being set everyday across the United States, as severe all states see the virus rage out of control. For the first time ever in the U.S., Florida saw more than 15,000 new cases in just one day. Meanwhile, in Arizona – the per capita infection rate is higher than it was at the peak of New York’s battle against the virus.

As of July 15, the U.S. has 3.48 million confirmed cases and almost 140,000 deaths due to Covid-19 infection. Those numbers are expected to continue to climb as many Americans refuse to follow simple preventive measures, including wearing a mask and staying at home.
