116 Selena Selena Selena Quintanilla-Pérez was an American singer, songwriter, spokesperson, actress, and fashion designer.

It's just so sad! She was young and naive and trusted everyone! It's how she died that made me sad. I also saw a video of how she might be in Hell. I couldn't even watch the whole thing. It said not to listen to her music, because then she'll get tortured more. I'm 12 years old, but I don't want to listen to her music. Not that I don't like it. But I want to respect her. We'll miss you Selena.

How is this not on top. Most of this people died from drugs, this 22 year old was murdered! She had such a kind heart, so sad her life was taken away by someone she actually loved and trusted. She would've been 45 if she was alive today and trust me she would've been bigger than shakira and Jennifer Lopez and all the popular Latinas. She had such a talent it's heartbreaking it ended all so soon. This death has affected so many people and she'll always be remembered

She was going to be more famous than Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Eminem, Tupac, Selena Gomez, ane Justin Bieber combined! She was also going to be a great role model, but unfortunately, her death came to be. We miss and love you Selena!

Queen of tejano music x and gone to soon
