A Selena Stan Made A Thread Of La Reina As Fanta Bottles And It’s Adorably Hilarious

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.

Most Twitter users who are fans of Mariah’s preferred the champagne bottle comparison over the whisk ones. “This over whisk all day,” said @plasstick4k.

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.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

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.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

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.

@extrapettychris/Twitter

“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!)

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

Things That Matter

Selena Gomez Is Holding Tech And Social Media Accountable After Trump Mob Shuts Down Congress

A pro-Trump mob stormed Capitol Hill Jan. 6 following months of President Donald Trump and his allies attacking the 2020 elections. Selena Gomez, like most Americans horrified by the attack, spoke out on social media about what happened. She made it clear that part of this falls on tech companies and social media companies.

Selena Gomez called out social media and tech companies for enabling hateful rhetoric.

President Donald Trump and his supporters have used social media to spread misinformation since he was elected in 2016. Americans have watched as President Trump used Twitter to spread falsehoods and conspiracy theories. There have been so many debunked claims that President Trump and his allies have spread with no consequence.

Recently, Twitter started to flag some of President Trump’s tweets as disputed or misleading. It was the first time a social media platform did something that checked President Trump and his rhetoric.

People quickly came to Gomez’s side to uplift her statement.

President Trump has a long history of hateful and dangerous rhetoric on social media. He has misled her supporters with false statements and has incited violence. The president has defended white supremacists on multiple occasions and even retweeted a video of a man shouting white power.

Social media platforms are finally muzzling President Trump with bans and suspensions.

Twitter has put the president on a temporary suspension after he incited the crowd that breached Capitol Hill. Meanwhile, Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg enhanced the original 24-hour ban to a indefinite ban that will last at least until President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. However, people think it is a little too late for these actions.

“Disinformation and extremism researchers have for years pointed to broader network-based exploitation of these platforms,” Sen. Mark R. Warner, D-Va., said in a statement. “As I have continually said, these platforms have served as core organizing infrastructure for violent, far right groups and militia movements for several years now – helping them to recruit, organize, coordinate and in many cases (particularly with respect to YouTube) generate profits from their violent, extremist content.”

What happened Jan. 6 at the nation’s Capitol was avoidable, but it’s clear who incited this violence.

Congress has officially certified President-elect Biden’s win. What should have been a quick process to certify an election turned into a horrifying scene. It is a day that will always define President Trump’s legacy.

Cardi B Catches Major Heat For Asking Twitter Whether She Should Purchase an $88K Handbag

Cardi B Catches Major Heat For Asking Twitter Whether She Should Purchase an $88K Handbag

Cardi B is, once again, embroiled in controversy. The Bronx-born rapper was trending over the weekend after she posted an extremely tone-deaf tweet.

“Should I spend 88K for this damn purse?” Cardi asked her 15.5 million followers. “Omggg it’s tempting.”

Her followers, it seemed, were none-too-pleased with this question.

Angry replies soon flooded Cardi’s mentions, dragging her for flaunting her wealth during an unprecedented pandemic when people are struggling to pay their bills and stay alive.

“Sis, there’s an eviction crisis, folks can’t feed their families, students are drowning in debt, and people are sick with and dying of COVID,” said one angry Twitter user. “Most of us don’t have the luxury of $88 temptations so hearing you’re trying to drop $88k on a purse feels hella wrong.”

Twitter users started telling Cardi that she should put that money to better use, like donating it to charity.

Cardi then brought out the receipts, showing off all of the times she donated her money to charity in the past year.

“I already donated 2 million dollars this year and I’m doing something very special in a another country that will be done with next year. What have you donated?” she said.

Cardi then went on the defensive, asking her critics to show her what they’ve donated so she would match it (the strategy being to prove that she’s more generous than her followers are).

“Okay let’s do this challenge! Since ya want to tell me to donate soo much…Drop receipts on what YOU have donated too [sic],” she tweeted. “I will match it and donate to a organization you have donate as well. LETS START NOW!

In response to the challenge, there were a few followers who proved that they donated $50 here or $100 there, but (obviously) no one had receipts to prove they’ve donated millions of dollars to charity.

Cardi then “apologized” for her alleged faux-pas.

“Ok guys I apologize. There you happy?!” she wrote. “I don’t see ya askin Trump for a apology when he out here missing COVID meetings to play golf but [okay].”

It didn’t end there. There was quite a bit of back-and-forth between Cardi and her haters for a while before the situation finally died down.

And, never one to miss an opportunity to crack a joke, Cardi concluded the who scandal with this gem of a tweet: “Sooooooo……do ya want me to show ya the purse?”

And that’s all, folks. Tune in next week for the next episode of Controversial Cardi. We’re sure she’ll keep delivering the drama, whether we want to see it or not.
