Selena To Get Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame


After twenty years of fans clamoring for Selena to be honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, she’s finally going to join the myriads of legends on the historic monument. Selena Quintanilla will receive her star on November 3rd in a ceremony which will be attended by her family. Los Angels mayor Eric Garcetti and Eva Longoria, (who is from Selena’s native Corpus Christi, TX), are slated to speak. Garcetti will also announce November 3rd as “Selena Day” in her honor. The star will be located in front of the Capitol Records building at 1750 N. Vine St. Otto Padron, president of Meruelo Media who are sponsoring the event, said,

“Before there was JLo, Shakira or Beyonce, there was a transformative female artist called Selena. Selena is one of the most influential music icons of the 20th century; her music, style and smile are timeless and now her star will grace our city forever.”

I’m from Texas and Selena and I would have been about the same age. I remember the day she died vividly. I had classmates that were related to Selena and they were inconsolable. Being Cuban, Tejano isn’t my native music but being from Texas and growing up surrounded by the Tejano community, I learned to appreciate it. But Selena was something else entirely. She transcended nationality, race, and creed. Her music was incredible and it’s about damn time they gave her a star. Let’s just hope it’s far from Donald Trump’s star.
