OK, I have to admit – I heard Kacey Musgraves was opening the Houston Rodeo with a Selena cover and immediately scoffed that she should stay in her lane of drag queen country music having an identity crisis (yes, I obviously listen to it). The only person who can go near Selena’s legacy is Jennifer Lopez on a Saturday afternoon when VH1 is only playing Selena on repeat. Well, Kacey was in Houston to open the rodeo on Monday night, and, even though her massive weave threatened to steal the show, this wasn’t the total dumpster fire I expected it to be. She seems to have won over the crowd and Selena’s own sister.
The ORIGINAL Selena’s widower Chris Perez is trying to turn his 2012 memoir To Selena, With Love into a TV series, but there’s a major road block in his way and that major road block is his late wife’s dad. Abraham Quintanilla Jr. has filed legal papers to put an end to production of the show. Now, you may be wondering if this is a case of a dad trying to protect his late daughter’s image or a case of “I am the only one who can make $$$$ off of my daughter!” It’s not that cut and dry, because Chris currently gets a percentage of profits from Selena’s estate.
