@jehhssss / Twitter

Selena Quintanilla has a devoted fan base to rival the likes of the Bee Hive or the Barbz (both of which have been known for go for blood when they’re stanning their Queens). Recently, fans of the powerhouse singer of Tejano music have taken to Twitter to compare the prolific singer’s outfits to everyday objects (oddly enough, whisks).

One stan matched Selena with Fanta bottles!

omg hahah I love how colorful this is!

And got creative with all of the colors revealing something that’s pretty sweet.

That our music queen was also a reina of vibrancy .

They even did Mariah Carey did it!

This time around, Mariah stans have decided that they have truly found the inanimate object that resembles their queen above any other inanimate object: the champagne bottle. Yes, you heard that right. A trend started by Mariah Carey uber-fan, Twitter user @extrapettychris, the biggest Mariah fans are now comparing photos of her in a range of outfits to photos of assorted champagne bottles. The result is an oddly hypnotic gallery of satisfying look-alike images.

1. The black and brilliant one.

2. The blue and bold one.

“She’s never been my favorite but this may have changed my mind a little #fabulous” – @WP_Realtor1

3. The gold and glittering one.

Ms. Carey always did have a soft spot for glitter…even if it wasn’t always in her best interest.

4. The red and risky one.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

Mariah has always been known to love to dress up. It’s no wonder some people call her the Queen of Costumes!

5. The silver and sparkling one.

The collection of pictures made more than one person’s day. “This got me rollllllling” said Twitter user @BoydTess.

6. The pretty in pink one.

“After seeing this I am hereby convinced she based her outfits after champagne bottles…only logical explanation,” said Twitter user @IAmThePlush.

7. The white and wonderful one.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

“WHO HAS THE TIME TO MAKE THESE BRUH” said one @lilswampass. Umm, a dedicated Mariah fan–that’s who.

8. The perfect and platinum one.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

In response to a comment saying “Someone put a lot of time into this”, @extrapettychris responded: “About a solid 15-20 minutes”.

9. The navy and nice one.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

Some other fans noted how looking at bottles of champagne that oddly resembled Mariah Carey somehow hit the spot: “This thread was very satisfying,” said Twitter user @guaranteed_O. Indeed, it was. Indeed, it was.

10. The green and gorgeous one.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

When asked if he’d been holding onto these image comparisons for a while, @extrapettychris responded, “Honestly, no. It was part stan behavior, part THC. Just thought of it last night”. We call it divine inspiration.

11. The leopard and luscious one.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

@Extrapettychris went all out when creating this list. Just check out this spot-on comparison of Mimi with a spotted champagne bottle. “Omg the water makes this,” said user @ArtieODaly. Agreed.

Some of his followers chimed in with their own versions of the “Elusive Chanteuse” as a champagne bottle

The champagne/Mimi mashup became a very passionate group effort.

12. The Sparkling Siren

@Danait_Berhane/Twitter

The simple act of comparing the Queen Diva to an intoxicating bubbly liquid seemed to actually be bring a small corner of the internet together to celebrate something they love. “I want to be friends with everyone here that’s a @MariahCarey fan!” said @SassClassNiceAs.

13. The Radiant Rainbow

@xochelzzz/Twitter

@Extrapettychris responded to the follower that created the above rainbow image with “Nailed it”. The creator of the image @xochelzzz responded, “Ha thanks bae! This thread is everything.”

14. The Morose Monochrome

@dahveezy88_/Twitter

Some users couldn’t put into words as to why they couldn’t look away. Like Twitter user @JSquaredStyle who so aptly wondered: “Why am I so intrigued by this?”

15. The fun and festive one

@keisha_plum/Twitter

Of course, any Mariah-related fan list wouldn’t be complete without a reference to her status as a Christmas icon.

16. The Heavenly “Hero”

@CuTeLaMb/Twitter

“So many pretty, shiny things to look at! Also, wine bottles…I guess”, quipped @YePirateLiberal.

17. The Glittering Goddess

@someonejemand/Twitter

“This is the most on-point thread I’ve seen lmfaooo”. – @sowr0ngitssteph

18. The Femme Fatale in Forest Green

@RavEveLav/Twitter

We can’t tell what has more curves, the bottle or MC? We’ll leave that up to you to decide.

19. The Bronze Beauty

@Bracs90/Twitter

Of course, @extrapettychris’s followers had to give him props where props were due: “This is an absolutely fabulous thread…hope #QueenMimi sees it, top work,” said @Amazing Airedale.

To the delight of everyone, Mariah Carey herself responded to the viral thread. And it was glorious.

As for what the Elusive Chanteuse thinks of it, it seems as if she might have even find the whole thing…amusing?

As for us, we can’t get enough of the bizarre comparisons either. Now, we’re just crossing our fingers that Twitter stans will set their sights next on another Latina goddess (Cardi B, we’re looking at you!)

Here’s Why Zoe Saldaña Wanted Her Character In The Animated Film “Missing Link” To Speak Spanish When She Was Angry

Atom Tickets / Youtube.com

Zoe Saldaña is back on the big screen. The Dominican-Puerto Rican actress, known for portraying strong women, is staying on theme, this time as the character Adelina Fortnight in the animated stop-motion feature Missing Link.

The film, which was written and directed by storyboard artist and filmmaker Chris Butler, follows a Sasquatch named Mr. Link, voiced by Zach Galifianakis, who seeks the help of adventurer Lionel Frost, played by Hugh Jackman, in a quest to find his long-lost relatives, the yeti, in Shangri-La. The duo is later joined by Adelina, who is mourning the death of her late husband, and accompanies the men in an effort to fulfill a mission he couldn’t achieve. During the trek, however, she ultimately accomplishes something greater: finding herself.

“Adelina is a very responsible individual who has had to start over a couple of times in her life. [She’s] now finding herself in a place where she needs a change. She needs to do something that makes her feel purposeful,” Saldaña, 40, told Newsweek of her character.  “She embarks on this adventure with these two characters and ends up really walking away with the answer she’s really looking for, which is her own independence. She needs to be completely independent for her to feel complete happiness.”

For the Guardians of the Galaxy actress, Adelina — an immigrant of Latin American descent, though the writers do not detail which country she is from — reminds her of the strong and powerful women that raised her. There’s a scene in the movie where the character stands up for Mr. Link when he is being bullied by Frost, behavior that evokes memories of Saldaña’s female relatives.

“Adelina reminds me so much of all the women that raised me. It’s true! They’re dutiful and have a sense of justice. They never stop and they’re very determined, but also they have a soft spot for underdogs. I like that about her,” she said.

But the character is like her family in another way: she’s bilingual, and tends to speak Spanish when she’s angry.

According to an interview with Remezcla, Butler said Saldaña chose to have her character switch to her native tongue when she became irate with one of her journey mates, usually Frost.

“I would ask Zoe, ‘If you were really that angry at this guy, what would you say?’ All I asked for was no swearing, and so she’d just come up with a few different versions,” Butler told the Latinx news site. “I think it was informed by her family as well, certain conversations with her grandma and her mother. She brought some of that into the character, too.”

Saldaña, whose only role fully in Spanish was in the 2005 Dominican film La Maldición del Padre Cardona, wanted to offer a realistic representation that young children in the US could relate to, especially her own kids, Bowie, 4, Cy, 4, and Zen, 2.

She was also eager to work with Laika, the stop-motion studio behind the film, hoping to ensure the “exquisite,” as she describes it, style sustains.

Missing Link is currently in theaters. The A-list actress’s next big-screen film is Avengers: Endgame, with Sandaña reprising her part as Gamora later this month.
