As for dancing, I only dance with people I know. I don't dance with strangers unless they ask my dad for permission. I also enjoy seeing other people dance. Then I go backstage and practice the steps I saw.
I think I'm very a kindhearted person. Um, I don't like to hurt people's feelings. If I do, it's not intentionally. I'm sincere and very honest. And I feel that now days a lot of people have lost that, but I think that starts in the home. My parents have taught me that. Being fair with people.
We're a very unified family. Within the family we have aggressive and dominating personalities, but we believe the family is the most important thing of all.
There's a fan club and it's based out of here in San Antonio and it carries the Mexican...for Mexico.. la gente de Mexico.. and tambien. .tambien all the United States, and what they do is they send out a newsletter each month telling you where we're gonna play and tambien there's also a fan club where you can pay a fee and you get the newsletter plus interviews with the band members and different stuff like that. T-shirts and all that junk.
We were playing gigs that we could get at the time. We'd get like a hundred dollars a gig for playing 4 hours and be like oh god this is cool (she laughs) now it's like...ahhh...(she laughs again) but you know you just take what you can get when you're starting out and we got laughed at we uh...my father was told that we would never make it. It was kinda hard at first, cause I knew it was uh.. a means of putting food on the table for the whole family. You know we did it to make a living. So the only way we could put bread on the table was try to sing and do music professionally and make a living off of it.
They're putting more powder on me because I have very oily skin. That's why we're coming out with the Selena line of makeup.
This is what happens when you gain weight before a video.
We grew up with morals and also respect for everyone. My father always treated us equal and we're not different. We all have talent even if they are in different aspects.
Chris wanted to show me first how to change gears. So later on down the road I'll be cruising on a Harley hopefully.
Well I think that's cause of my dad and his belt. (Selena laughs and imitates her father) you're gonna sing little girl! (shaking her hands in front of her and laughing). Boy, I was very shy but when a person grows up you change and those things do too.
We were friends. I never thought I'd wanna marry a musician.
Ever since I was a little girl, I'd dreamed of having a big, wonderful wedding, with a long white gown and a bouquet of flowers. But my love for Chris was so strong. I couldn't wait any longer for us to be husband and wife. I couldn't even wear my nicest dress because that would have made my father suspicious.
One thing is that if I ever have children later on, for sure I want my children to know Spanish. It only makes you a better person or even a smarter person to know 2 languages. If that barrier is not there you can cross both lines, talk to English and Spanish people and it gets you a lot farther in business and personal communication.
What I do on stage, you won't catch me doing off stage. I mean, I think deep down I'm still kind of, like, timid and modest about a lot of things. But on stage, I release all that; I let it go.
The life of an artist isn't all glamorous. It's a lot of work. A lot of people think it's very easy. They think you always stay in good hotels, you buy good things, but it's not like that. You have to work hard like everybody else.
Well, when I'm singing I'm a completely different person. I could be very free, depending on the situation I could do what I want. I would have to deliver, like with many songs, a lot of emotion if a song is very sad, as with a very happy and excited song. It depends, it depends. Compared to when I'm my normal self, like whomever, of the public.
I'm spoiled in the sense that now I get what I want but it's because I work for it.
What's cool about our family is that we don't hold grudges and I think that's sort of been the key to the success. Ya know we have our disagreements but whether we're right or wrong we'll just go and apologize. That's just the way we are.
A lot of people say..ya know that it's hard to work with family and what's good about our family is that we've all had the same goal and we all have the same respect for my father...so when we get into a discussion there's dad like good old times with a belt. I think a lot of the musical talent came on my fathers part cause he used to be a musician many years ago when he had his own band named Los Dinos.

I knew her better than herself …and she was beautiful and strong and felt deep. It has always surprised me to see the way she saw herself; how little she thought about her person. It struck me as surprising because every single time I’ve seen her, I’ve thought her larger than life. And that’s why the world feared her. Because they couldn’t compare to her; she raised a new bar for others to be measured by. Because looking at the sun hurts…and she was that to me. My own piece of sky.
Aisha…is it wrong of me to wish you to break a leg? Into many tiny, little pieces? And when or if it heals…would it be too much to hope it ends up looking in the wrong direction…like backwards? Because I truly do. From the bottom of my little, black heart.” She crossed her fingers over said thing.
