8 Non-Latinos Who Are Just As Obsessed With Selena As We Are

Selena Quintanilla was crowned the Queen of Tex-Mex, but you don’t have to be Tejano or Mexicano to be her fan. These non-Latino celebs are just as obsessed with her because Selena, duh.

We know the Canadian rapper loves Latino culture. He’s even paid tribute to Selena several times. In 2015, 20 years after her death, he wore an airbrushed shirt with singer’s face on it and posted the picture on Instagram. “They’ll be talkin’ ’til I meet Selena,” he captioned.

He wore another shirt of the Tex-Mex queen during one of his concerts.

Big Sean wears shirts with musicians he’s very passionate about, from Sadé to N.W.A to… Selena. Yeah, this one might not be like the others, but as he said to Billboard, “Selena’s a legend. She did it big; she was the first.” Of course we agree.

3. Kylie Jenner

King Kylie got a ton of backlash when she wore this shirt to Universal Studios Orlando with her boyfriend Tyga. We say, anyone who shows Selena some love is cool with us. ❤️

4. Lady Gaga

Mama Monster posted on social media a picture of her favorite shirt. She wrote “Leaving for Korea in less than a week!!!! Wearing my favorite t shirt today. It might be the raddest ever.” We agree… and speaking of, how rad would a Gaga / Selena remix be?

5. Beyoncé

Queen Bey actually got to MEET the Queen of Tejano when she was a teenager, but with just enough time to say “hello.” Jealous! Being from Texas herself, Beyoncé grew up listening Selena’s music. “I heard her on the radio and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was saying, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation,” said Miss Sasha Fierce during an interview with MTV Tres.

6. Katy Perry

During a press junket this California Gurl spoke out about how much Selena has influenced her music career. “Someone asked me, ‘What did you think of when you were a little girl relating to the Grammy’s?’ I said, ‘I remember Selena! That’s all I remember! I remember that dress. I remember the whole movie about her… and I wanted to be in that world.” Possibly the cutest thing she’s ever said.

7. Meghan Trainor

The “All About That Bass” singer confessed during an interview with ET that Selena played a huge role in her singing career. “‘Selena’ the movie was the reason I wanted to become a singer,” she said. We still dream of becoming singers ourselves, so, same Meghan.

8. Whitney Houston

In 1999, the singer talked with the greatest admiration about Selena’s many accomplishments. “What Selena did in the English market was brilliant,” said Houston during an interview with New York Daily News. We think English and Spanish market.

In the two years that have passed since her debut as an actress in the 2018 Academy Award-winning film Roma, Yaltiza Aparicio has established herself as a Hollywood “get.” The Indigenous actress has appeared countless times on the cover of magazines, ones like Vogue México and Vanity Fair, and has been featured in ad campaigns for designers like Rodarte. So it’s no surprise that she has now been tapped to be part of Dior’s new campaign “Dior Stands with Women.”

As part of an effort to celebrate women across the film, beauty, and health industries Dior has launched its “Dior Stands with Women” campaign.

On Monday, the fashion brand announced it had launched a series of short films honoring women and their contributions to the industries and communities which they occupy. The campaign features actresses like Yaltiza Aparicio, model Paloma Elsesser, dancer Leyna Bloom, Cara Delevingne, Charlize Theron, Parris Goebel, and others.

In a statement about the campaign, Dior announced their intent in a post on Instagram. “Inspired by the exceptional women who have marked its history, Christian Dior Parfums unveils a series of short filmed portraits that give a chance to speak to extraordinary women,” it reads.

Speaking in the portrait series, Aparicio explains “For me, being a woman means being strong, always holding your head up because they tell you what they say, you must be sure of what you are capable of,” she went onto say that as “as an ambassador for UNESCO, my role is to represent indigenous communities with dignity. Give them a voice and visibility, which is something that we have lacked for a long time… Women have fought for many years for gender equality. It is not about being superior to men, it is about having the same opportunities, that in your work they give you a fair salary and not simply because you are a woman they pay you less or that they consider that you have fewer capacities simply because you are a woman.”

Speaking about their journeys, actresses Cara Delevinge and Charlize Theron touched on being unapologetic and part of male-dominated industries.

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

These $1,200 Gucci Jeans Are Designed With Grass Stains Around The Knees And Are Not Worth The Joke

Gucci / Twitter

In these tough times, Gucci’s latest line proves that you might be able to get a fortune out of the jeans you use as workwear in the yard. The upscale label recently launched a new line of jeans and overalls featuring a grass stain effect on their knees. But these are not your father’s cutting the lawn jeans.

The oversized pants retail for a cool $1,400 and feature large pockets and side buttons…

Users on Twitter were quick to question whether or not the new jeans were a joke by Gucci or a reflection of just how tone-deaf the high-end label is.

“How did it take so long for this to become a thing? My entire wardrobe just became more valuable!” one user tweeted in response. A second user commented, “Yeah not a Good Look!!! Wouldn’t buy those Jeans at the Thrift Store for a Dollar!!!”

It wasn’t long ago that the designer brand received criticism for selling warn-in sneakers that were “treated for an all-over distressed effect.”

The kicks were valued at $870. The brand’s description of the shoe design boasted that it was inspired by “vintage” 70s styles.

“The Screener sneakers — named for the defensive sports move — feature the Web stripe on the side and vintage Gucci logo, treated for an allover distressed effect,” the website explained.

Takeaway? Money sure can’t buy good taste.
