And the initials are not "JB"!
She's the kind of actreSelena Gomez (WireImage)ss, pop singer and fashionista most chicas love to follow and admire. But when we asked Selena Gomez who she looked up to, she had only one answer: the first Selena. "I was named after Selena Quintanilla, and I looked up to her growing up. I loved her music. I watched her movie over and over again. I went to Corpus Christie [Texas]; I saw her grave and her home. That's someone I definitely look up to," says Gomez.
Like Quintanilla, Gomez was raised in Texas in a family who celebrated its Mexican roots and made Latin culture its own. The Latina actress reportedly grew up celebrating Quinceañeras and having Sunday asados after church. And when it comes to comida mexicana, she names pork tamales as her favorite dish, but says she's afraid nothing good will come out if she's the one preparing them.
