Claro que si los rizos de Selena have blown up twitter! We could not be more obsessed to rock her style and it’s true, Selena is back in style now more than ever.
The Quintanillas work hard to keep Selena’s legacy alive, but they are constantly reminded of the tragic family loss that occurred in 1995.
Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister, shared in an interview with People Magazine how her family has worked through the years to deal with the pain.
“We can be fine, and then someone wants to share where they were when they heard that Selena died, and that’s very difficult,” Quintanilla said. “I have to dig deep in my soul to figure out why. Then I realize it’s their way of sharing, that they feel that connection, they’re sharing that they felt lost.”
Twenty-five years later, La Reina Del Tex-Mex remains in her family’s heart and soul, and in her fans hearts through her music.
