magic925sandiegoHappy Birthday Selena. RIP, we miss you so much!
Today would have been Selena Quintanilla’s 46th birthday. The Mexican-American singer was famously dubbed the Queen of Tejano and is known for nineties hits “Como La Flor,” “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” and “Dreaming of You.” She bridged the gap between Mexican and American music and won a Grammy for Best Mexican-American Album in 1994. Her life was tragically cut short when she was shot in 1995. The 1997 film, ‘Selena,’ paid tribute to her life, with Jennifer Lopez playing the singer in her acting debut. The film thrusted Lopez into the spotlight and also landed on our list of the best music biopics of all time. Check out the full list on RollingStone.com. Photograph by Pam Francis
