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

This is one of the Selena photos we’ve all seen and love. Cada vez que lo vemos pasar, our hearts go “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom.”

3. Smiling Selena

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.

12. The “I Swear I’m Not Posing” Pose

What’s she looking at? Probably La Carcancha as it drives by with it’s motor al reves.

13. Si Una Vez…

Le dijiste que la amas, no es suficiente. Selena’s such a great artist that year after year, we continue to have tributes dedicated to her.

14. Ready to Bidi Bidi Bom Bom

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.

This Instagram Page Is Doing The Work To Identify And Expose The People Who Stormed The Capitol

After a group of Trump supporters stormed the Capitol Jan. 6, people immediately started identifying the intruders. Videos have been circulating and people are steadily contacting the FBI to expose them. Instagram page @homegrownterrorists is one of the leading forces in identifying the rioters.

On Jan. 6, people stormed our Capitol building and the American people are demanding justice.

Images of people storming the Capitol building and looting the offices of members of Congress startled people around the world. One of the safest places in the world was overrun by far-right Trump supporters attacking the democratic process. Americans are demanding justice and working together to identify and report as many people to the FBI that were at the Capitol.

The Instagram page is unapologetically encouraging followers to identify people at the Capitol.

Five people died as a result of the riot, two of them were police officers. The Instagram page, run anonymously, is encouraging people to share the photos to their stories to increase the reach. The account might not have any legal power, but it is having some success. There has been more than one person identified through the IG page that has led to people losing jobs and being arrested by the FBI.

The account has disappeared multiple times but always comes back.

The mystery person running the account has expressed concern over their safety. The account has been suspended by Instagram after being reported by multiple people. There has even been some talk about them receiving threats of violence via DMs.

The person who runs the account has mentioned it randomly on their stories but with no real detail. According to recent stories, the person behind the account doesn’t want to antagonize the people sending threats.

The owner of the account did say that they have been contacted by Instagram about the account.

A tweet from HomeGrownTerrorists caught Instagram’s attention and the account was reinstated. However, there was a backup account to keep functioning in case the original got deleted. IG and the account owner reached an agreement where they get to keep the main account and the backup account was permanently banned. No questions asked.

If you want to help or be connected to the cause, you can follow this page on Instagram.

There are a lot of people left to identify and the nation’s law enforcement is bracing for more violence. Capitols in all 50 states are on alert for possible attacks and the National Guard is being mobilized in big numbers for the inauguration. We are not out of the woods when it comes to the threats that have been made.

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

UPS Delivery Man Is Fired After Video Surfaces of His Anti-Latino Racist Rant

An unnamed UPS delivery driver has been fired after being caught using racist language when delivering a package to a Latino household. The incident occurred on December 17th.

The video, which was caught on a doorbell camera’s security footage, shows a white UPS driver appearing to be angry when delivering a package.

“Now you don’t get f—–g nothing…You can’t read and write and speak the f—–g English language,” he says while writing a “failed to deliver” notice and pasting it on the house’s front door.

The Aviles family says that the footage shows that the UPS worker never even attempted to deliver the package in the first place. He never rang the doorbell or knocked on the door. Based on that, the family has come to the conclusion that the driver intentionally withheld the package from the family out of prejudice and spite

They believe that the only way the driver could’ve known that the family was Latino was by making assumptions based off the name on the package.

“The only information this driver had that could serve as a trigger for this deep-seated hate was the name on the package,” said Forward Latino President Darryl Morin at a press conference addressing the incident.

“So what we have here is a very intentional act to ruin Christmas for somebody, for someone to spew this hateful rhetoric, and quite honestly to deceive their employer,” Morin continued.

Per UPS, the employee has now been fired. “There is no place in any community for racism, bigotry or hate. This is very serious and we promptly took action, terminating the driver’s employment. UPS is wholeheartedly committed to diversity, equity and inclusion,” UPS said in a statement. They also said they contacted the family to apologize.

But the Aviles family is still rattled that such bigoted people are out and about, letting their petty prejudices effect other people’s lives.

“The package was a Christmas gift that we eventually received after Christmas Day, but what if it happened to have time-sensitive content like an epipen or a book I needed to take a final,” said Shirley Aviles, the mother of the man who lives at the address, told NBC News. “I don’t get it. It’s just sad.”

Aviles seemed disturbed about what this incident says about human nature. “This is about the things people do when they think no one is watching them. That’s important because that’s when you see people’s true colors and that’s what’s scary,”
