It’s hard to believe it’s been 20 years since Selena Quintanilla-Perez was taken from the world. On the anniversary of her tragic death, her fans are remembering her across all forms of social media.
Selena Quintanilla-Perez was just 23 years old when she was shot and killed by her own assistant, Yolanda Saldivar. Now, 20 years after her death, the Mexican-American singer who stole hearts in the early 90’s with her beautiful voice is still being honored and remembered by fans of all ages.
Selena Quintanilla-Perez Remember On Anniversary Of Death
One thing is for sure: Selena and her music will live on forever. This was proven on the 20th Anniversary of her murder, when fans mourned the incredible singer’s short-lived life by taking over social media with different hashtags.
#AnythingForSelenas was one of the top used tags that fans used, sharing hundreds of pictures, videos, and song lyrics from their favorite singer.
However, #WearRedForSelena was the most powerful tag used as many fans, including some who weren’t even born before Selena was killed, shared pictures of themselves wearing red lipstick in honor of the fallen star. It was a truly amazing sight to see!
HollywoodLife.com has collected just a handful of the messages being written and shared on Twitter in Selena’s honor. You can check them out below!

I may not even be Latina but that doesn’t mean that I don’t love her just as much as the people who are. RIP Selena #AnythingForSelenas
