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.

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.

Selena is on top of the charts again with an album rerelease.

“Ones,” a collection of Selena’s top hits, was re-released on vinyl and the rapid sale of the vinyl set launched the album to No. 1 on the Billboards vinyl chart. The chart has only been around for 9 years and Selena is already dominating.

People are very lucky to have received their limited-edition vinyl.

Who doesn’t like to experience Selena’s music on vinyl with a new crop top? It is the only correct outfit to wear when you are feeling yourself to the sounds of Selena.

Selena fans are so happy to see their favorite still making news.

It doesn’t take much to make Selena fans excited. It is easy to argue that the late-singer has a very excited and mobilized base of fans. People have kept her legacy and her fame alive all these years.

Now Selena fans want to see the rest of her albums re-released.

Just picture it. A world where you can get all of Selena’s albums released again as vinyl. What a wonderful world that would be, huh? Nothing like having a chance to buy more Selena merch because, tbh, you can never have enough.

Let’s take one more moment to admire this beautiful vinyl.

It is beautiful and glorious. The vinyl set is something we will always remember. Honestly, it is what la reina deserves.

The Internet Is Showing Its Love For Bad Bunny For Helping Us Get Through 2020 With These Incredible Memes

It’s a simple fact: 2020 is the Year of Bad Bunny. El Conejo Malo has been everywhere – from epic SNL skits and moving performances on late night TV to the Billboard Hot 200 chart. And he’s been making history in the process.

Millions of fans have been stanning Bad Bunny so hard this year and it’s about time the reggaetónero from Puerto Rico gets the recognition he’s long deserved. And what does the Internet do when it wants to give that recognition? Well, it makes memes of course!

Here is a round up of some of the very best Bad Bunny memes that exist on the world wide webs:

Tell me where the lie is!

Hit after hit, bop after bop, Bad Bunny has delivered consecutive hits and I am here for each and every one of them. From ‘RLNDT’ and ‘NI BIEN NI MAL’ from X 100PRE to ‘Yo Perreo Sola’ and ‘Ignorantes’ on YHLQMDLG, Bad Bunny has given us not one but two albums of the summer.

Same!

The song that launched a meme challenge!

From shocked abuelas and tías to disapproving mothers, ‘Safaera’ has turned into a viral hit – and it’s 100% a song that I can’t wait to dance to once we can hit the clubs once again.

I feel this all the way.

Tell me I’m lying!

Bad Bunny has taken 2020 by storm – and I stan so hard.

With all that’s going on in the world and with so many of us under stay-at-home orders, this meme couldn’t speak a louder truth. Bad Bunny has steamrolled society with not one but two albums in the span of a couple of months. But society is ready for it.

Pretty sure that if Bad Bunny so much as breathes, we all feel it.

I feel connected to him on a special level – he speaks to so many of us in so many ways that this meme might as well be true.

Have you not done this?

Yup, totally been here. Phone call from abuela? Not answering. Slack chat from boss? Ignore. Text from mom? Not replying.

Nothing comes between me and my YHLQMDLG listening time.

The Holy Trinity

The Holy Trinity in all of its glory: X 100PRE, Oasis, and YHLQMDLG. Though how it will look once we add in Las Que No Iban A Salir?!

People need to show some respect!

Yes, that’ all I’m asking for! A moment of respect. Please!

Bad Bunny is helping to heal the world – or at least holds me tight in those scary moments.

And this couldn’t be any more real! With so much going on in the world and all of the uncertainty, Bad Bunny has provided that much-needed comfort blanket that has held me close in all of these crises.
