Are you a Selena superfan who has obsessed over every clip of the late Tejano singer? Here’s one you haven’t seen. The Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History has just released a Selena interview that was “lost” for more than 20 years. Recorded by the TV show “Tejano USA” in April of 1994, the two-minute clip features Selena Quintanilla talking about her Grammy win for Best Mexican/Mexican-American Album and her three-episode stint on the popular telenovela “Dos Mujeres, Un Camino.” The end of the interview may give you chills as Selena plugs her “new video” for a song called “Amor Prohibido.” Also of note: the host’s expert-level Spanglish game.
According to the Smithsonian, the interview was found in a television camera that was donated to National Museum of American History by KWEX-TV, a San Antonio-based TV station owned by Univision.
