On an unrelated note, maybe we should all start buying MAC Cosmetics stock before Selena’s makeup hits the shelves.

And if there is one thing Latinas know, it’s that there is ALWAYS room for more makeup, especially SELENA makeup.

‘Selena’ Producer Sues Abraham And Suzette Quintanilla Over Limited Series

‘Selena’ Producer Sues Abraham And Suzette Quintanilla Over Limited Series

Moctesuma Esparza is suing Netflix, Abraham and Suzette Quintanilla over “Selena: The Series.” Esparza is seeking damages of $1 million for an alleged breach of contract. The lawsuit comes one month before the series is set to debut on Netflix.

“Selena: The Series” is almost here and there’s a new lawsuit about the project.

“Selena” producer Moctesuma Esparza is suing Netflix along with Abraham and Suzette Quintanilla over the new limited series. The lawsuit claims that Selena’s father and sister broke an agreement they entered into that gave him the rights to the late-Tejano singer’s life, according to TMZ.

Esparza claims that the deal made for the rights included more than just the 1997 biopic.

According to TMZ, Esparza claims that the agreement made included any remakes of the story. Esparza also claims that he has the rights to the story of every character. The documents allege that Esparza met with Suzette and Abraham to discuss a project he created for “Young Selena.”

The conversation over Selena’s life rights began in 1995.

A post shared by Selena (@selenaqofficial) on

According to an article in the LATimes from 1995, the family and Esparza entered into an informal agreement. According to the article, instead of formal contracts about the rights to Selena’s story, Esparza gave the Quintanilla family final say on the script. In return, Esparza was able to completely handle the production side.

The article states that Esparza was not after the rights to Selena’s story at the time. However, Esparza is alleging that that changed in 1998 when he and the Quintanilla family formalized a deal over Selena’s rights.

Netflix’s “Selena: The Series” will be streaming on Dec. 4.

It isn’t clear what this lawsuit would mean for the series. The Quintanilla family is known for keeping a strong protector of Selena, her story, and her image.

The show is giving younger Selena fans a chance to get to know the younger Selena. This are the years leading up to the wild popularity in the Latino community and her English-language cross-over. It’s been decades since we got the first in-depth look into Selena’s life and fans cannot wait to finally have an in-depth look at a different moment in the iconic singer’s life.

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.
