Selena Quintanilla Will Always Be La Reina And Her Memes Are Everything

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.

Relationships are a big part of this meme trend.

Oof. This is painful and so many of us know this to be true. 😭 Sure, we can all blame our relationship woes on the current state of the world.

Stunning. Show-stopping. Magnificent. We love to see it. There is nothing better to see in this world than someone living their authentic truth. Like, go and do your thing. Slay all of the hearts you see, honey, and take no prisoners. We are all better in their world to be surrounded by people living in complete honesty.

The Lil Nas X joined in on the fun and highlighted his own meteoric rise to fame.

The “Old Town Road” singer really did make a big name for himself. Not only did his song get made into a duet and remix with every artist imaginable, he beat Mariah Carey’s record. Lil Nas X went from someone that no one knew to unseating Mariah Carey for longest time spent at No. 1 on the Billboard Charts.

There are some very clever takes on this meme.

So, like, who else feels like they are being personally attacked by this meme? College might have been years ago but these memories linger. Tequila is just one of those things that so many of use have to learn the hard way and those lessons stick with you.

Simone Biles gave us one of the most memorable glow ups of the meme challenge.

Simone Biles is one of the most legendary women to ever walk this planet. The way she was able to make herself known around the world as the best gymnast is no short feat. She is and will always be one of the best women to represent the U.S. in the Olympics.
