This Little Girl Had A Selena-Themed Birthday Party Complete With Costume Changes And Roses

Selena is and will always be La Reina in our hearts. We literally can’t think of a time when she wasn’t a major part of our lives. From our childhoods to our college days and right into adulthood, Selena has been a moment of pride in the Latino community. So, it just makes sense that we would throw Selena-themed birthday parties for our kids. That’s exactly what Lily Martinez, aka @lilylove213, did for her daughter, @selibeliloves.

Martinez told mitú that her daughter’s favorite song is “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” by the timeless Selena. Martinez was able to take that fact and turned it into an entire party. Honestly, why couldn’t our parents think of the same kind of party for us? Who wouldn’t love a Selena-themed party?

First of all, the backdrop for the cakes was everything.

Who doesn’t want to be surrounded by metallic fringe in their special day? It just really adds that pizzazz factor that every party needs in order to really make it top notch. Bravo.

Obviously, Selena’s favorite flowers made their appearance in the cake.

Roses are always a good idea, tbh. But to put them in a cake to celebrate the one and only Selena is something magical. Clearly, La Reina would have been muy excited to see this cake.

Martinez says she and her daughter sat down and created the “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” sign together. They got some letters from the craft store, painted them then added glitter and created an iconic cake topper.

What’s for lunch? Pizzas, of course.

You can’t throw a Selena party and not use her favorite food. Not having pizzas would be a crime against La Reina and her devoted fans. Gotta represent in the most authentic way.

Oh. @selibelilove definitely had some outfit changes because, duh.

Little girl slayed all of her looks. Now, we all remember how embarrassing and frustrating it was when mom took thousands of photos of us at out birthday parties. However, who doesn’t want their own Selena photoshoot?

She was an icon in Selena’s “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” outfit.

That’s how to nail a look. It isn’t all about the clothes. It is clear that this little fashionista is ready to serve looks no matter where she is.

And, of course, no Selena party is complete without a purple jumpsuit.

Sure. It isn’t part of the “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” music video but the look is the look. Everyone knows that this is the most iconic look to ever be associated with Selena.

Mommy was even dressed up for the party in her own Selena t-shirt.

Talk about an adorable mom and daughter duo. Mom supporting her daughter’s love of all things Selena. Daughter letting moment take thousands of photos. Truly incredible.

Happy birthday, you little Selenita, you.

Keep on slaying and keep on serving those looks. Selena would be proud.

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.

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.

A 5-Year-Old Latino Boy Stole His Parents Car And Told The Police Who Pulled Him Over He Was Buying A Lamborghini

A 5-Year-Old Latino Boy Stole His Parents Car And Told The Police Who Pulled Him Over He Was Buying A Lamborghini

Talk about being resourceful.

In Utah, a 5-year-old boy with a whopping $3 in his pocket took a joy ride in his parents’ car with plans to drive to California. When police pulled him over, he told officers that he wanted to buy a Lamborghini. This was, apparently, after his mother refused to take him to buy the luxury car when he asked her to buy him one.

According to reports, a trooper saw the SUV (driven by the boy) weaving on Interstate 15 at 30 mph.

In the dash-camera footage of the encounter, Trooper Rick Morgan addressed the kid saying “How old are you? You’re 5 years old?… Wow … Where did you learn to drive a car?”

Speaking to KSL-TV, Morgan said that when he pulled the kid over, he had to help him get the SUV into park mode. “He was sitting on the front edge of the seat so that he could reach the brake pedal to keep the car stopped while I was standing there,” Morgan explained.

After being pulled over, the child (identified as Adrian Zamarripa) said that all he wanted to do was drive to California to buy a Lamborghini for himself. Remember that part about the $3 in his pocket?

Right.

According to Morgan, no one was hurt by Zamarripa.

Zamarripa wasn’t able to buy the car, which at a new rate is worth $200,000 but he has been able to drive around the block in them since.

A post shared by RD (@wiresonly) on

Lamborghini owner Jeremy Neves heard Zamarripa’s story and decided to take him out on a little spin of his own. When news of Neves offer went viral, it wasn’t long before a celebrity luxury car dealer offered to fly him out to California.

According to a report by TMZ, RD Whittington, who is the owner of the brand Wires Only, flew Zamarripa and his family to Los Angels. While at the dealership he was able to sit in Lamborghini, a Ferrari, and a Hummer. The dealership also organized it so that Zamarripa was able to FaceTime with Shaq and Lil Pump and had the chance to meet Jamie Foxx in person.

In response to criticism that their kind gestures might only cause other kids to seek out similar rewards by copying Zamarripa’s behavior, Neves explained “I’m absolutely inspired by the principles that he displayed of success ― knowing what he wants, going after it… Absolutely, I’m not encouraging kids to go out and take their parents’ car, and do anything else that’s illegal. I’m not advocating that at all.”

Of course, Zamarripa, has received quite a bit of positive attention for his actions, this story is not without its consequences. According to CNN, the boy’s parents are punishing him for stealing their car. Fortunately for them, the Weber County District Attorney won’t be pushing to charge his parents with neglect charges.
