The Tejano Princess
Young, gorgeous, and vivacious.
It was rare to see Selena Quintanilla-Perez without a glowing smile. Her laughter was contagious. Her music was heartbreakingly magical.
At 23, the Texas beauty was murdered by the president of her own fan club.
The last word she heard before she collapsed to her death was "bitch."
Nothing is fair.
I had a very boring childhood because I never had the opportunity to associate with anybody my own age due to my career.
Although my Spanish is a little weak I feel that I am Mexican. I'm very proud of my roots and ever since I was little we played English music and country music aside from Tejano. It was something very natural for us.
I only dance with people I know. I don't dance with strangers unless they ask my dad for permission. I also enjoy seeing other people dance. Then I go backstage and practice the steps I saw.
What I do on stage, you won't catch me doing off stage. I mean, I think deep down I'm still kind of, like, timid and modest about a lot of things. But on stage, I release all that; I let it go.
If you have a dream, don't let anyone take it away.
