30 Facts About The Queen of Tejano Music: Selena Quintanilla Pérez

April 24, 2014 · Print

  • comments

Screen Shot 2014-04-16 at 1.54.14 PM

#1 Selena was the third-highest-earning Latino performer in the U.S.

#2 Her final concert at the Astrodome broke all previous attendance records, seating over 61,000 people.

#3 Selena’s first English-language album, Dreaming of You, sold 175,000 copies in a single day.

#4 Front page stories in the New York Times and other major newspapers compared her killing to the shooting of John Lennon.

#5 An estimated 100,000 mourners showed up to Selena’s public viewing at the convention center in Corpus Christi, Texas.

#6 Abraham Quintanilla converted the garage into a soundproof space, where Selena, A.B. and Suzette rehearsed every day for 30 minutes.

#7 A.B. and Suzette did not enjoy performing, but Selena didn’t mind.

#8 Abraham would take the kids to the grocery store really late at night so no one could see that they were on food stamps.

#9 At one point, there were 13 people living in one house, and only 1 bathroom.

#10 Abraham made their stage lights out of empty peach cans.

#11 He also made sure that anyone who played with Selena y Los Dinos got paid. The family got paid in Whataburgers.

#12 Selena, A.B. and Suzette didn’t like Tejano music.  They didn’t get it.  They didn’t speak Spanish and weren’t raised on Spanish music. They preferred playing what they heard on the radio.

#13 Selena learned to sing Spanish phonetically.

#14 The band’s bus “Big Bertha” had no power steering, no heating, air conditioning, no running water, no electricity, no restroom AND the windows would not go down.

#15 Selena was 17 when she signed  a one year contract with Coca-Cola for $75,000 and was featured in English and Spanish language ad campaigns in Hispanic media markets across the country.

#16 Selena was from the barrio, down to earth and still ate tortillas y frijoles.

#17 She would buy bras at Victoria’s Secret and glue-gun Swarovski crystals on them.

#18 Selena’s mircrophones wound up covered with her red lipstick after gigs.

#19 They played an all-night concert in Monterrey with 96,000 people.

#20 Selena and band member Chris Pérez kept their relationship a secret until they eloped.

#21 One of Selena’s dreams was to become a fashion designer. She was known for beading her boots or sewing beads on her bras before shows.

#22 The first time Selena preformed on The Johnny Canales Show, she was 13 and asked if she could do the interview in English.  In 1994, she was able to speak Spanish fluently.

#23 Amor Prohibido bumped Gloria Estefan’s album out of the number one spot on the Billboard Latin charts.

#24 Her albums went platinum after her death, and  Dreaming of You came out a few months later and instantly went to number one. 

#25 Months after her death, there was a big spike in the number of baby girls being named Selena. 

#26 She was the first Latin artist to debut on the Billboard charts at number one.

#27 Tejano became increasingly directionless after she died.  

#28 People magazine produced a tribute issue.  It was only the third time in the magazine’s history that a tribute issue had been produced; previous ones were for Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Audrey Hepburn.  The tribute issue and subsequent printings sold out, and that’s how People en Español came about.

#29 All rooms at the Days Inn have been renumbered in order to give their guests greater privacy from Selena fans.  Selena was shot in room #158.

#30 Selena’s last words were “Yolanda Saldivar, in room 158.”
