Remembering Selena Quintanilla Perez: Her Widower Speaks



Today is 26 years since Latina music icon Selena Quintanilla Perez was murdered by the president of her fan club. In an all-new episode of E! True Hollywood Story, her husband and guitarist Chris Perez detailed the grief he endured after losing the love of his life at the hands of her close friend and business partner.

"It was traumatic, it was the hardest thing up until that point that I had ever had to go through. I [still] miss her face, her laughter. She was just an amazing soul, an amazing spirit...I used to never tell people I love them, you know? Or I miss them, or just give them gifts just because. I learned those things and many, many other things from her."

He also revealed the pain of having to finish the instrumentals of her English songs without his wife. The songs were for the English crossover album she never got to complete.

"Them pushing play for me to record the guitar tracks and to hear her voice coming out the speakers in the studio, it was just painful to go in [the recording booth] and have to create parts and make them sound a certain way, when really inside you're just dying." he remembered.

Chris planned to mark this year's occasion his own way.

Selena was just 23 at the time of her murder. Her murderer will be up for parole March 30, 2025.

Dolly Parton (+9 {4} Others) Named One of NME's People Who Defined 2020, Also Saved a Child's Life

Not content with being an icon of music and film, @DollyParton went the extra mile during this pandemic year https://t.co/bVJstUPTzX — NME (@NME) December 13, 2020 The big news for Dolly Parton this year was, of course, her role as a financial backer of research into a COVID vaccine. Her $1 million donation to Vanderbilt University has contributed to the development of Moderna's vaccine - you can't save 2020 much more than that. Oh, but in case you needed another reason to love Dolly this year, she also spoke up in support of Black Lives Matter, saying, “Of course Black lives matter. Do you think our little white asses are the only ones that matter? No!” How to even sum up John Boyega's 2020? He's spoken out very publicly about his thoughts on how his role in Star Wars dwindled over the course of the trilogy, but more importantly, he spoke up even louder at a Black Lives Matter demonstration in London, making waves with his passionate speech. Being so outspo

Source ONTD, i haven’t seen Bridgerton, but do you think he’d be a good Black Panther? (I had my hopes up for multiverse Killmonger tbh). from Oh No They Didn't! https://ift.tt/3tC0bEW

ONTD Original: Monthly Movie Challenge – January

Another 10-task challenge. You obviously don’t need to do all 10 tasks, choose as many as you want, but I figured it gives you some variety and allows you to pick and choose movies that fit your taste but also maybe lead you to watch something you wouldn’t normally seek out. For each task, you can pick whatever movie fits within the guidelines, I've added links to help you out. I tried to add tasks that would allow you to get movies on Netflix, Amazon Prime, and/or Hulu – but there’s also Kanopy and Hoopla (both of which you can get free access through your library or university). Have a different movie for each task – that is, don’t have the same movie for task 2 and task 6. Tasks: 1. The man who will say yes to anything (except paying his taxes), Nicolas Cage , has a birthday on January 7th. Watch any one of his movies. 2. Watch any movie that has been referenced in Parks and Recreation . 3. I've been invited to a worrying number of house parties the last few weeks (t
