If you were a Latino growing up in the 90’s no matter what you were a Selena fan! You were a fan of her music, her style and what she stood for when it came to the Latin culture. Many were able to grow up with her but other were only able to grow up with the memory of her until now. On August 30, 2016 Madame Tussauds in Hollywood, Calif. has added the first Selena wax figure to its showcase. Selena’s husband Chris Perez, sister Suzette Quintanilla, and brother A.B. Quintanilla welcomed the wax figure at its opening yesterday. It’s not only a win for Selena and her family but its a win for all Latinos who look up to her still till this day.
There are so many mixed emotions. Our family went all together and saw her and it left everybody speechless. It got kind of quiet. And when we were checking her out we were just freaking out because it looks so much like her. They did such an incredible job.
You will now be able to experience the look and style that only Selena knew and in bodied for her fans and culture. So if you’re in the Hollywood area make sure to check it out and let us know what you thought of the experience.
