time for a sappy post.
selena quintanilla is one of my biggest inspirations. ever since i was little, my dad would tell me that i reminded him of her. that i was born to be a star. that i was talented beyond belief. that i was a hard worker. all of these qualities that selena possessed in gratuitous quantities.
to think that a young, mexican woman made it so far in the 1990s hollywood and music scene astounds me, and the fact that her memory prevails to this day is more than amazing. it’s truly remarkable.
according to the company, the selena x mac release was the biggest collection they’ve ever done. they had to produce six times the quantity they usually do just so they could keep up with demand. six times. and this is over twenty years after selena died.
selena is truly a legend and her memory will never fade. she will always inspire me in times of darkness and this collection is just one of many ways she’s shown me that you can do anything.
selena la leyenda
siempre mi reina
