    Jennifer Lopez is still inspired by Selena Quntanilla Perez two decades after her death.

    The "American Idol" judge, who notably played the late Tejano singer in the 1997 biopic "Selena," reflected on the "tragedy" of the young star's passing and "why she left such an imprint" during a Q&A with Billboard. She also retweeted several commemorations of the Latin pop star on the 20-year anniversary of her death on Tuesday.

    On March 31, 1995, the 23-year-old Mexican-American singer was shot and killed by Yolanda Saldivar after a falling-out over business. Saldivar, the former president of her fan club, is serving a life sentence.

    JLo, 45, said that the "Dreaming of You" singer and her performances actually had a hand in allowing her to pursue her successful music career.

    "I sang in musicals before, but as part of a cast, never as a solo artist upfront or a recording artist," Lopez told the mag. "It made me realize, 'Don't neglect parts of yourself and let people put you in a box because you're an actress. You can do this, and you can also do that. Life is short, and you don't know what's going to happen. Go for your dreams and don't let anyone hold you back.'"

    My favorite part of that video was at the end when they show that People Magazine had a spic version for those living near the border with Selena on the cover and a white version of People Magazine for everyone else with the cast of friends on the cover... :cwl:

    RIP Selena...
    This was the event when Wiggy had Fred play the shotgun sound effect and the chickens squawking during their reporting on the Selena shooting. That resulted in the 'apology' which was not really an apology when he spoke in Spanish to his Spanish speaking listeners. This was back in K-ROCK. I didn't hear the entire show today, but what I heard did not have a reference to Selena's tragic death.

    He probably listened to the tapes and backpedaled big time, claiming he's America's Judge and he's a bigger person now or something else just as douchetastic.
