  1. Yeah, nothing wrong with emotion but the attack, for lack of a better term, on men comes right out of the universities, particularly the Humanities. I've taught/teach at various universities and there's this ideological push by the humanities from the material they teach to the lectures which focus on power structure and how they need to be tore down. All that is leaking into the mainstream.

    she wasn't even on da billing...

    Selena was her breakout role, and even then it wasn't mainstream in America from what i remember.

    i dont care either way.

  6. That situation with Puffy,pdiddy,sean combs or whatever you want to call him is what helped people pay attention to her,then she did a lot of songs with rappers,black artist to get urban radio and it gradually went from there.She's not that talented when it comes to music or acting but I believe she worked her way to where she is,which is what you're supposed to do.The media talks more about her relationships than what movie or music she's doing,again thanks to you know who.

    All of that talk about Spanish this or that is just fluff because no one knew who Selena was on a mainstream level outside of people from her culture and her country and it wasn't her music that made the mainstream media pay her attention,it was the story behind her death that made everyone else take notice.That movie probably sold better when it was a dvd than it did at the theaters in certain regions,California,Texas it probably did well.I know who she is and I can't tell you one damn song she's done but I know her story,which was terrible.She's not going to get burn like the Biggie movie or NWA,La Bamba movie from the 80's,I know Richie,I know his song,that's as far as it goes.

    Was first introduced to Jennifer Lopez through Selena. Didn’t see the movie til ‘97 when it was coming on HBO everyday. Coincidentally that is the same time she was in Anaconda which I saw in theaters cause my older sister pretended to be my mom :lol: and the “Been around the World” video with Puff and Ma$e. She was bubbling heavy and then blew up after that with this song and video that was EVERYWHERE once it premiered




    MTV and BET was playing this **** like 20 times a day minimum. She set the world on fire after that. A couple Versace dresses here, Puff and Shyne nightclub shootouts there, Ja Rule duets, Bennifer, ****ty movies like Maid in Manhattan and Enough and some years pass and here we are with J. Lo still relevant. She’s overrated but I’ll still smash.


    A retrospective brought to you by NT’s fashion police.

    Moved from Queens to San Antonio back in the early 90s. Had no clue who she was when I got there, didn’t take long to find out though. If I’m not mistaken City Council (or someone on it) is trying to create a designated holiday for her. $0.99 reusable bags sold at the local grocery retailer, created a Black Friday vibe awhile back and the resell on them ****s was like $40-50.
