It’s been almost 25 years since Selena Quintanilla was killed by Yolanda Saldívar and devastated her fans. Back in the 1980’s she was being refused booking for being a woman singing in the mostly male-dominated Tejano genre but she pushed through and is an icon to millions. With the new internet age, it was only a matter of time till we had Selena memes for every situation. Thankfully, that day is here.

1. Sheer surprise and horror.

Seeing your teacher outside of school is one of the most shocking moments for kids. Like, why are they just here at the grocery store shopping? Don’t they live at the school? Are they going to give me a pop quiz in front of my mom?

2. There’s nothing more devastating than someone taking your food.

Your parents always told you that you were so dramatic when this happened. It’s like they don’t understand that you have been waiting for this moment all day and now someone has taken away the one thing that brought you joy. Selena gets it. Selena gets you.

3. Some of the memes are a little…much.

This is probably not a meme you want to throw around, but, tbh, me.

4. Some of the memes offer necessary and relevant relationship advice.

Okay, so Selena really understands us. We are always hungry and when our boos ask what’s wrong, it is likely the only answer.

5. This whole adulting thing is too much for some people.

She was such an icon, and so ahead of her time. You validate me, Selena. I want to be like you when I grow up.

6. Food > Everything

I’m pretty sure I use this phrase about 10 times a week. I just don’t understand why more people don’t drown themselves in pizza. It is a gift from up above.

7. She had her own food appearance moment.

Only the greats find a way to come back on food to show the world that they will not be forgotten.

8. How long until she is part of Disney royalty?

She is one of the most loved and respected musical princesses of our generation. We want to see her face all over that Disney merch.

9. She is a trendsetter that everyone tries to overlook.

Yeah. That’s right. Selena was the first celebrity to make having a butt something to be celebrated.

10. The feud that shouldn’t be.

There is room for both of them to exist in your playlist. After all, Gomez was named after Selena because her mother was such a big fan. If anything, it’s a touching homage.

11. We will never get over her.

It’s hard to imagine a world without Selena. We are living in one physically but we just can’t let her go from our hearts and minds.

12. Did we mention that she is great for relationship reactions?

That was cute, boo. *wipes tear from my smizing eye* I needed that pick-me-up. Distribute this meme widely.

13. The movie is soul crushing after all these years.

Every time. We hid our tears during high school Spanish class y, como viejos, we openly weep. 😩

14. Playing Yolanda Saldívar took courage for sure.

That’s what you call a good job. She was able to play the woman who killed Selena and made us feel that.

15. Tips on how to talk to the negative people in your life.

Modern slang is confusing and, honestly, doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

16. “Mean Girls” quotes + Selena = My life.

Yeah. It’s a hard rule, and it’s for every day of the week and we don’t care how many Kälteen bars you’ve eaten today.

17. She encourages us to be the sleuths we are meant to be.

Every expression she makes –pensive, quizzical, sorpresa– is a work of art. So spot on.

18. She makes a better Waldo than Waldo.

Demi Lovato Is Taking Steps To Recovery And Fans Are Showering Her With Love

@kaylareneemedd / Twitter

Demi Lovato is back home after completing 90 days of in-patient treatment for her sobriety. Lovato has been open about her addiction and recovery for years now, and has helped humanize and destigmatize the disease. We know that she’s attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings, and very, very slowly stepping back into her life.

Lovatics are screaming for her return, so here are the breadcrumbs of what we know about her sobriety, where she’s been spotted around Los Angeles, and who she’s stanning on the gram.

The disease of addiction almost killed her in July.

Her assistant found her unconscious body with blood on her pillow and immediately thought she was dead. She was hospitalized for almost two weeks before she was released for her overdose.

This is the last photo she posted before overdosing.

That same night, we know that she overdosed and was taken to the hospital via ambulance. The 26-year-old eventually posted another photo thanking her fans and discussing her recovery but has since deleted it.

Last week, Demi posted for the first time in over three months urging her fans to get to the polls.

Caption: “I am so grateful to be home in time to vote! One vote can make a difference, so make sure your voice is heard!🗳 🇺🇸 now go out and #VOTE!!!!”

Lovato is starting fresh with a new phone number.

Needless to say, 70.5 million followers saw this and immediately DM’ed her. Clearly, she’s drawing personal boundaries from scratch and her fans are here for it.

Case in point:

TMZ has reported that Lovato is splitting her time between home and a sober house, which is quite common for strong addiction recovery facilities. There is no cure for addiction, but strong, clear accountability by professionals with strong support systems by other recovering alcoholics has been proven effective.

Lovato liked Christina Aguilera’s post promoting her Liberation tour.

Then, the Lovatics swarmed in on @xtina’s post. Literally the whole comment feed is full of folks celebrating Lovato’s return to social media.

The internet is thirsty for Lovato content.

It’s easy to be a fan and move on with your life without realizing that Lovato has been going through some serious physical and mental health recovery all along. She may be making a soft re-entry into social media, but she is still very vulnerable.

TMZ has reported that her ex, Valderrama has been a major support for her.

An insider told Us Weekly that, “Demi and Wilmer are still in constant communication,” and that they “speak over the phone pretty much every day and see each other often.” They haven’t been seen publicly yet.

Back in 2015, Lovato said that she “really wouldn’t be alive today without him,” according to the LA Times.

She captioned a photo celebrating her third year of sobriety saying, “He’s loved me the way I never thought I deserved to be loved and with this day marking my 3rd year sober… After sharing my ups, putting up with my downs and supporting my recovery… he still never takes credit and I want the world to know how incredible his soul is.”

That said, she was spotted at a Japanese restaurant in Beverly Hills with designer Henry Levy.

A source told People that “Henry has been helping Demi stay on the right path.” You do you, boo.

She’s also been spotted hitting the gym and stopping by an office building.

A different People source added, “He has a bit of a troubled past as well, but is doing well now. He will be great at supporting Demi’s sobriety. He is kind of an eccentric guy, but sweet. Demi won’t be bored with him. He is very creative and passionate about life.”

These are the freshest photos of Demi in months and Lovatics are panicking.

Prepare yourself because what you are about to hear is going to make you very, VERY angry. You’ve been warned.

Some people have already started body shaming the recovering singer.

We’re not going to honor the trolls or the basura they spew by quoting anything here, but we will say that her fan base does not disappoint. Ejemplo: “Demi, the #lovatics love you. You look amazing. Please do not listen to these ignorant, mostly male, haters. God bless you.”

You’ve never looked better, mija.

This is what health looks like. I’ve never stanned harder.

While we don’t have as much Lovato content, at least we have each other. ❤️

“We got dragged together by Demi” 😂 It’s true. Her fearlessness, honesty and vulnerability in everything she does is the most compelling thing on the internet. During these dark times, we need Demi now more than ever.

Even though she’s been off social media for months, fans are blowing internet kisses.

We hope the only content she’s consuming is this.

So Demi, if you’re reading, here’s all the mushy content you need.

Raise your hand if you’re one of the Lovatics that are proud of her for prioritizing her health. When Lovato shows up for herself, she shows us all how to do the same.

Your health is all we’re looking at.

CREDIT: @kaylareneemedd / Twitter

It’s hard because we miss you so much, but also know that all this attention is probably not what you need right now. We’re shipping you all the positive energy to keep that healthy glow going.

Some of us are getting tatted to show her support.

Lovato’s last post had said, “I now need time to heal and focus on my sobriety and road to recovery. The love you have all shown me will never be forgotten and I look forward to the day where I can say I came out on the other side. I will keep fighting.”

Stay strong, Demi.

Demi, we see you, we’re here for you, y te amos.

Haters? What haters? All we see is love y respecto for this process you’re going through. When you’re ready for the onslaught of love, you know where to go.
