Selena Interviewed in Lubbock 1994 [Watch]
Lubbock was certainly no stranger to the Selena phenomenon.
This interview took place one year before Selena's death. She was killed on March 31st, 1995. I distinctly remember acknowledging her death on 94.5 FMX, because after the death of John Lennon on December 8th, 1980, we felt like we had a pretty good idea of how much this hurt the Hispanic and Tejano community. (Dimebag Darell would also be senselessly killed in 2004.)
This interview started trending again on the Queen of Tejano YouTube channel, no doubt due to the popularity of the new Selena series on Netflix. That Netflix show, by the way, has resulted in tons of memes and talk on the internet. (Bottom line: people like the movie a lot more.)
So yes, I know I'm addressing some rockers here and some people who do enjoy a variety of music. Whether you're a fan or not, Selena had a very inspiring, turned tragic, story. I think we can all honor this woman, and her family deserves a little respect for their accomplishments, too.
All Hail the Queen of Tejano. Something tells me she rocked a bit, too.
