Thirty Years Later, This Woman Finally Celebrated The Quinceañera Of Her Dreams

There’s several reasons why 15 year olds never have a quinceañera. They might not be into the whole big dress and chambelan thing, they might not have the money for a huge party, or the timing is not right. But just because you didn’t have a quinceañera at 15 doesn’t mean you can’t have a quinceañera ever again.

“She has been dreaming about a quince since she was a young girl, but never got the chance to have one simply because she knew her parents couldn’t afford one,” her son Saúl Ramírez said. “She wanted to have one when she turned thirty but due to being in bed-rest while being pregnant with her second child, she couldn’t. Eventually, about three years ago, she decided to have the party at age 45.”

Her quinceañera was truly spectacular and very unique to how she wanted to celebrate.

Her party include a special dance with her husband to her favorite song, “Perfect” by Ed Sheeran. Most quinceañera traditions includes parents giving their daughter her “ultima muñeca” — the last doll which signifies her transformation from child to adult. But Saúl said that instead of a doll she received her first walker! And rather than cake, guests were given Lorena’s favorite dessert, donuts from Krispy Kreme.

She also had five chambelans instead of one.

“She had a main chambelan which was my dad, her husband and four others as well as their wives — her two sisters, best friend, and cousin — as the damas. So she had a full honor court,” Saúl said.

Lorena’s quince wasn’t just a party, however. She also had a Catholic quince mass that included padrinos and madrinas.

Her son Saúl also serenaded her with an original song he wrote just for her.

Something tells us we’re going to see a lot more women celebrate their quince at any age, thanks to Lorena.

Veronica Vega Is Being Dragged All Over Twitter After Proclaiming 'We All Black' After A Fight With Amara La Negra


Veronica Vega Is Being Dragged All Over Twitter After Proclaiming ‘We All Black’ After A Fight With Amara La Negra

This season finale had all the drama and scandal one can expect.

The season finale for “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” was intense. After a drama-filled season, the show capped it all off with a showdown between Veronica Vega and Amara La Negra. In the clip above about the fight, it is clear that Vega was doing her best to instigate some kind of confrontation. The scene starts with her calling Amara La Negra and Jojo fake and asking Steph Lecor why she is even hanging out with them. Then, while yelling, it looks like she reaches into her pocket and throws something at Jojo. Amara La Negra quickly reacts and jumps on the table and it becomes a melee with security ripping them apart. That’s when Vega’s tirade of insults takes a turn and people are offended.

“Tell the little girls, tell them that you’re a fake ass hoe with fake ass hair, representing a culture that you don’t f*cking understand,” Vega screams at Amara La Negra. She added in her confessional: “Your skin might be darker, my skin might be lighter, but we all black, girl. We all came from the same place.”

Twitter users are not happy with Vega’s comment.

Vega continues in her confessional to say that there are real people and fake people when it comes to cultural representation and implies that she is the real one in the argument.

Confusion and anger about her insensitive comment led to a Twitter dragging for the ages.

People really want to know if Vega truly believes that she is black.

Legit, people have a real problem with Vega’s claim of being black.

It’s just not okay. Period.

And they didn’t let the whole “fake” comments slide.


Appropriating black culture to further one’s music career has been the topic of many discussions lately. Other artists who have been accused of using black culture to boost their careers include Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, and Miley Cyrus. When will people learn that appropriation is not appreciation?

Twitter users even called out Vega’s use of weave and wigs after calling Amara La Negra’s hair fake.

? ? ?

Some people across the Internet are using GIFs to express how appalled they are by Vega’s statement and behavior.

Dayum. That is some savagery.

But a few Twitter users just want Vega to remember that it’s Amara La Negra’s career that’s taking off.
