For the die-hard Selena Quintanilla fan, there is neither a song nor video of the late music icon that can be consumed too many times. In fact, ask any OG Selena fan what her favorite movie is, and we’re pretty sure we can predict what her answer will be.
And who could blame her? There are so many reasons to love the 1997 biopic Selena. One is because it’s where some of us where introduced to Jennifer Lopez (who we love just as much). The other is because we can celebrate Selena’s legacy over and over again. And let’s be real, “Bidi Bidi Bom Bom” never gets old. In fact, here are seven scenes from Selena that we can watch over and over again on repeat.
"Como la Flor"
J. Lo plays a nervous Selena Quintanilla who steps onstage to perform "Como La Flor" for a crowd of hundreds. You can see her nerves turn into confidence onstage, marking the moment that Selena truly arrived. Can we also talk about that white beaded bra top? It's epic.
" I love pizza"
In this scene, J. Lo embodies the very essence of why so many people simply adored Selena Quintanilla. She was sweet, playful, and always unapologetically herself.
"Balia Esta Cumbia"
This scene captures Selena Quintanilla transforming from a girl into a woman, which her dad was obviously not so comfortable with. Though oh so funny, we can totally feel for him as he watches Selena show off her dance moves on stage.
"Anything for Selenas"
This just might be the most memorable scene from the entire movie. "Anything for Selenas" has been quoted on everything from hats to T-shirts, and we still can't get enough.
We could seriously watch the opening scene of this movie on repeat. That outfit. Those dance moves. It's perfect.
Another scene that truly captures Selena's fun and fearless personality.
"Bidi Bidi Bom Bom"
Besides being the best song ever, J. Lo's portrayal of Selena here is spot on. We're sure she made the Tejana proud.
