Poll: Selena Is Often Imitated, But Who Sings Her Songs Better?

Even though this legend of a singer is no longer with us, there’s no doubt that her music lives on till this day. Which makes sense why so many other artists like Bruno Mars, Solange, and Pepe Aguilar are still singing Selena’s hits at their own concerts.



But the question is…who sang the song better? Take the poll and vote for your favorite!

There Might Be A Selena Funko Pop Doll Coming Out In 2021 And It’s About Time

Funko Pop dolls are a major part of American pop culture. We all have friends, family members, and coworkers who are avid Funko Pop collectors. Every major celebrity and character has been made into a Funko Pop doll and finally, at very long last, Selena is joining the lineup.

There is allegedly a Selena Funko Pop doll coming next year and fans are here 👏🏼 for 👏🏼 it. 👏🏼

A list of all the Funko Pop dolls coming in 2021 has been released and it seems like Selena fans will finally be in the lineup. The Queen of Tejano music, who still rocks our playlists, will soon be available for you to buy and have sitting on your desk with all of your other Funko Pop friends.

Some people have already created what they think will be the Funko Pop Selena doll based on the description.

It is kind of amazing how we never, ever get tired of seeing Selena in that glittered purple jumpsuit. Her AstroDome concert will forever be one of the most iconic outfits ever worn by anyone ever. That is just a fact. We all recognize that specific purple jumpsuit as one of Selena’s most important looks of her career.

Fans are ready to pony up the cash for these dolls.

Businesses have learned in recent years just how important Selena is to the Latino community. She represents the first time we saw people who looked like us making a big name for themselves. Media had been so white for so long that it was incredible to see Selena taking the stage and breaking into mainstream culture.

The excitement to own the Selena Funko Pop doll is very palpable.

The entire fandom just screamed “Me siento muy…excited!” How is it that one of the most iconic singers of all time hasn’t been made into a Funko Pop doll yet? One question that is likely on everyone’s mind is how closely the Quintanilla family is to the project. We all know that they have to be involved in all things with Selena’s likeness so we all just want to know what’s up.

The 21st century has shaped up to be a major moment for Selena.

Her impact on the Latino community has far exceeded her time alive. She showed us that brown girls can do anything they want to do and that we belong. Selena’s legacy has transcended generations and is being passed on to younger Latinos and Latinas. It is something that we love to see because all of us deserve to know that we can do anything we put our minds to.

“Selena: The Series” Trailer Is Here And The ’80s Hairstyles Are Everything

Update October 26, 2020

The trailer for Netflix’s “Selena: The Series” is here and it is everything fans have been hoping for. The Netflix Original series is shining a light on the Selena few of us have had a chance to explore. The story will be told of a young Selena as she is starting her music career.

The trailer for “Selena: The Series” is out and it looks magnificent.

The first trailer is here and it is showing us all of the ’80s Selena vibes and looks we love. We never got a real good look at the early years of Selena y Los Dinos so this show is giving us a chance to better know Selena. We all know Selena as the Grammy-winning artist who was tragically murdered by her fan club president, but we have not really known her at the beginning of her career.

Let’s just all take a moment and appreciate those curly-haired looks.

We have all seen the photos of Selena with the curly, ’80s-style looks. Her curly hair always seemed like some intangible moment in her history. For the first time in a long time, we get to know the Selena who worked to become the most famous female Latin artists of all time.

We are just over one month away before the release of the new show.

“Selena: The Series” premieres on Dec. 4 and all the Selena fans cannot wait. Be sure to catch in on Netflix so we all have something to talk about online while still in quarantine.

Original: One of the most popular and cathartic things to do in the time of Covid is to binge-watch shows on streaming platforms. Why drag something out when you can watch an entire season in a day? Well, Selena fans now have one more thing to binge after Netflix announced the release date for “Selena: The Series.”

The world will forever change after Dec. 4.

Netflix is finally releasing the highly anticipated show “Selena: The Series” and we are so stoked to finally see it. The show has been on the radar of Selena fans everywhere since it was announced in 2018. We have all patiently waited for two years to finally see this show.

This is not a drill. This is not a prank. This is a gift from the entertainment deities who want to make sure that we all have something to make these hard times better. All you need is access to a Netflix account, doesn’t matter whose, and the enduring love for Selena that most of us have.

People are marking their calendars for a big day in entertainment.

That’s right. Netflix is releasing “Selena: The Series” and Disney+ is releasing “Mulan” for Disney+ subscribers at no extra charge after trying to rent it for $30 through the app. Dec. 4 is gearing up to be one of the most exciting days for people who just don’t want to leave the house during the current Covid pandemic. What a time to be a live, huh?

Netflix knows exactly what they are doing by releasing this show.

This show is approved by the Quintanilla family so there is that. This show was announced at the same time that Telemundo announced that the Spanish-language network was releasing their own series “El Secreto De Selena.”

The Telemundo show was based on the book written by journalist María Celeste Arrarás. The family has vehemently denied the accusations made in the book multiple times and Telemundo’s decision to make the series, which aired in 2018, angered viewers.

We have been promised a story about Selena that we have not seen in the past.

The Netflix series will not be rehashing what we have already seen. We know the story of Selena’s musical rise and tragic death thanks to “Selena” with J.Lo.

“Selena: The Series” is going to be showing us the life of a young Selena before the fame and musical career. It is truly amazing that after all of these years, there are still new stories to be told about Selena and her important place in American Latino history.

“Before she became the Queen of Tejano Music, Selena Quintanilla was a young girl from Texas with big dreams and an even bigger voice,” reads the description of the show. “The two-part coming-of-age drama ‘Selena: The Series’ explores the once-in-a-generation performer’s journey as a young artist, from singing small gigs in Corpus Christi with her family to becoming one of the most successful Latin artists of all time — and the years of grit and sacrifice the Quintanilla family navigated together before Selena’s meteoric rise to fame.”

So, mark your calendars and gather your loved ones.

This day should be a holiday as we all know that Selena is one of the greatest unifiers in the Latino community. We still sing her songs to this day and her legacy is being passed down to younger Latinos. Selena gave us representations before we knew we wanted and needed it.

It’s like we can already hear those old-school Selena y Los Dinos songs playing in our heads. Dec. 4 can’t get here fast enough and that’s a fact.
