Chris Perez Watched ‘Selena’ For The First Time And Shared His Reactions As He Watched It

Chris Perez recently watched “Selena” for the first time and he gave everyone a front seat to his emotional experience. Perez took to Facebook and gave everyone a play by play on what was happening with some of the most iconic scenes of “Selena.” It’s as sweet and insightful as one would think.

Here’s how he kicked things off:

“Guess what just started on the Lifetime tv channel…yup. Gonna grab a bottle of wine from the kitchen and sit through the movie in it’s entirety for the first time (besides the premier…where my eyes were closed half of the time),” Perez wrote. “Wish me luck. This is gonna be surreal. ?”

From the start, Perez seemed very weary and emotional about watching the life of his late wife.

“Ugh, don’t know if I can do this,” Perez wrote. “The TRUE test will be when my ‘character’ comes out. ?”

He did have some fun with it, like when he recognized a joke that A.B. Quintanilla would totally tell.

That is so cute.

He even confirmed that the band talked about the “bumper story” after he joined the band.

“I heard about the ‘bumper story,'” Perez wrote. “That happened before I was in the band. #Funny #AnythingForSelenas” Anything for Selenas, indeed.

And then Perez, the character, came on screen. It got real.

“Here…we…go…,” Perez wrote.

He was even very humble about his portrayal.

“Wow…,” Perez wrote. “I was HOT! LOLOL!!!!!! ?”

Perez then gave all Selena fans an incredible scoop about the famous pizza scene.

“Yup. She LOOOOOOOOVED pizza…this scene coulda been a lil more heavy,” Perez wrote. “Here’s where we first said ‘I love you’ to each other. My head was spinning.” ? ? ?

He cleared up some inconsistencies with the overall storyline.

“She always made me nervous….who ‘dances’ nest to Selena? LOLO!!!! ?,” Perez wrote. Then, it got real. CHHTT!!!!!! And it was Ricky (not Joe) that busted us. (Sorry Rick…my bad).”

Clearly he was moved by some of the inside jokes that the two had.

“The, ‘he hardly talks’ part is right,” Perez wrote. “You have to get to know me. ?”

The room trashing scene? Perez totally owned up to it.

“Room trashing happened….Oh God,” Perez lamented. “Not one of my prouder moments. But I paid THOUSANDS in damages. Lesson Learned. She…was…PISSED.”

And then he gave all the men reading some advice on how to handle your less than valiant moments.

“But…you know what? When you mess up bad, pay for your mistakes AND do a great job after?????,” Perez wrote. “NO ONE can dispute your talent. NO EXCUSES.”

He also pointed out that they were actually married before the whole stage collapse incident.  *

“We were married by this point,” Perez wrote. “Movie doesn’t show that.” #Shade

And, of course, he told us what all the band members felt during the concert.

“That was crazier than the movie shows,” Perez admitted. “I thought we were not gonna make it out.”

As the movie neared the end, Perez gracefully bowed out, most likely because it would be too painful to relive her death.

“And here’s where I think I have to leave the party….It was good hanging out with you guys tonight and being able to ‘talk’ with you all,” Perez wrote to his followers. “Until next time….ENJOY THE REST OF THE MOVIE! ?”

At the end, he gave Jennifer Lopez a shout out for her performance and let us know he just can’t watch the end of the movie, because of course.

“I’ll tell you what… Jen did a great f!@#king jobs. Super proud,” Perez wrote. “Will not watch the ending of the movie. G’night everyone….one last time, LOL!”

Chris Pérez and Joe Ojeda Have Mini Los Dinos Reunion With Empowering Corrido “Nuestra Tierra”

Chris Pérez, the widower of Selena, is back with his first taste of new music in over a decade. The Mexican-American musician regroups with his old Los Dinos bandmate Joe Ojeda for the new single “Nuestra Tierra.” The song also features Victoria La Mala and Yorch.

“Nuestra Tierra” is a song that reflects on the Mexican immigrant experience.

Chris Pérez’s last musical project was with Kumbia All-Starz. They teamed up for the song “La Vida De Un Genio” in 2010. He returns to the music scene in “Nuestra Tierra.” The corrido reflects on the life of a Mexican immigrant moving to the US in search of the American Dream.

“I love this song because it truly reflects the times that we’re living in as immigrants in this country,” Victoria La Mala said in a statement. “We come here looking for a better life, but we sacrifice and leave so much behind. It was so incredible to have the opportunity to work with people that I’ve admired and looked up to for years like Chris and Joe. Yorch is also super talented and like me and so many people, moved to this country looking to follow our dreams and search for more opportunities.”

“Nuestra Tierra” is filled with Mexican talent like Victoria La Mala and Yorch.

Pérez played the guitar on the empowering “Nuestra Tierra” while Ojeda and Roberto “Bobbo” Gómez handled the production duties. Victoria La Mala and Yorch trade verses about the struggle Mexican immigrants face while trying to find a better life in the U.S.

“Bobbo, Joe, and myself came up with the chord structure, the arrangement basically,” Pérez said. “Jorge Eduardo [Yorch] and Victoria were doing their thing, scribbling away like crazy on their notepads. I wasn’t quite sure what they were coming up with but the second I heard them singing their part, well, it was like magic. And to be a part of something like that is a rarity these days, so I am truly proud of the song.”

The song also marks a reunion between two old Los Dinos bandmates.

“Nuestra Tierra” also marks a mini-reunion between two of Selena’s Los Dino band members, Chris Pérez and Ojeda. The two say this song was created “on the fly” during downtime in the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The song’s power and message moved us all,” Ojeda said. “This song really focuses on us, los Mexicanos, los Paisanos, especially La Raza that is still living ‘on the other side’ and simply wanting a better life for their families. And isn’t that what we all want? My hope for this song is that it resonates with a lot of people and that everyone understands its message.”

A Mexican Artist Is Making Pancake Art That’s Too Beautiful To Eat

Social media is where people can show off just about anything they create. This includes art in any and all media, like pancake art. Claudia, the creator behind Nappan Pancake art, is the latest artist watching their art reach the masses.

Claudia, the artist behind Nappan Pancake art, got her start because of the pandemic.

The artist first started to play around with pancake art last spring break when the pandemic forced businesses and schools to close. Claudia wanted to get more creative with her kids’ breakfasts since they were now always at home.

“I started experimenting with making Pancake art,” Claudia recalls to mitú. “At first I only used the color of the natural dough and a little cocoa. At first, I just used the ketchup dispensers and little by little I learned.”

Claudia uses her pancake art to honor some truly iconic people.

Cepillín recently died and the loss was felt throughout the community. He made our lives joyous and fun with his music, especially his birthday song. Some of the creations are done for fans who request to see their faves turned into delicious pancake art.

The artist loves creating the edible works of art.

The journey of becoming a pancake artist has been a fun adventure for Claudia and her children. The more she has practiced, the more she has been able to do.

“Sometimes I scream with excitement and I go to all the members of my house to see it,” Claudia says about her successes. “Other times it’s just a feeling like “disappointment could be better” other times it just breaks or burns and then I just cry but it usually feels very satisfying.”

You can check out all of her creations on TikTok.
