25 years have passed since the premiere of “Selena” and this is how Jennifer López pays tribute

The successful film, inspired by Selena Quintanilla, premiered in 1997 and was the one that consolidated Jennifer López as a successful Hollywood actress.

On March 21, 1997, one of the most successful films of recent decades was released: “Selena”. A film that pays tribute to the Queen of Tex-Mex, Selena Quintanilla, who was murdered on March 31, 1995 at the hands of Yolanda Saldívar.

It was this production that catapulted the actress and singer Jennifer López to world fame, since it was she who embodied the character of the interpreter of “Forbidden Love”.

The film was released two years after the death of the Queen of Tex Mex and JLo was chosen to bring the character to life, turning her from that moment into a successful celebrity in Hollywood, since her facial features were similar to Selena’s.
