And broke so many barriers, like this…
Like releasing the first Tejano album to achieve gold status after selling more than 500,000 copies for Ven Conmigo.

In 1993 she also won a Grammy Award for best Mexican-American Album for Live!
So naturally, we’d expect she’s already been honored with her own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, right?

Because it seems like literally anyone who’s anyone has one.

You mean to tell me… Yep, Selena Quintanilla does not have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
But help is on its way ☝.

Andrew Longoria of Corpus Christi, TX created a petition through change.org to get the queen her own star. So far it’s collected 2,345 signatures of the 2,500 goal. And remember what happened last time a Selena petition was created? MAC Cosmetics agreed to create a collection dedicated to the Tex-Mex singer.
Hold up ✋. Only one minor detail…
According to the Hollywood Walk of Fame site, the committee does not accept petitions for a nomination. Womp, womp. But we’re sure Selena’s fans and family will nominate her following the correct process.
