While sitting down with Telemundo's MVTO earlier this week, the Devious Maids star discussed the late Selena Quintanilla's legacy and what she truly means to our community. "It [Selena's legacy] means everything. It's so incredibly sad, but her legacy is so huge for the Mexican community and Latinos in general." Sanchez told The MVTO. "She was able to do so much, even though she had a short life. She's adored. She was a good singer, a good talent, and a good person."

She continued, "It's incredible the phenomenon of Selena until this day is the same. We worship Selena because she had the potential to do an incredible crossover, even though she did — she was the pioneer. Everybody wants to be that, and she did it before anybody else."

The proof of Selena's long-lasting legacy and love from her fans is being seen in everything from a #MACSelena makeup collection to a wax figure at Madame Tussauds to the Queen of Tejano receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017. We can only imagine her smile as she looks down.
