Selena ‘It’s Pretty Neat To Be Mexican’

Selena Gomez LATINA scans. 4+ Credit: flatteries @ DisneyChannel. Sel loves her Latin roots, she told the magazine [Via TigerBeat]: ‘I didn’t even realize what a big deal it was to be Latin at first. Then one day being with my dad, it hit me:

It’s pretty neat to be Mexican. And there aren’t enough Latinas in Hollywood, or there are, but they don’t get the recognition. So to be able to come out here and use that, it’s really a powerful thing.’

    THATS RIGHT BEING LATINE IS AWESOME.
    WE love our roots. Go Selena! Appreciate those roots baby haha : )

  • pelafina

    and no she doesn’t know spanish. she hardly sees her father. why would her italian mother know spanish? demi knows it because her mother/family speaks it fluently. dallas does too. it’s all about who you grow up with.
    ——————-

    I actually thought I read that her mother is Mexican, but of course it depends on who you grow up with.

    I’M NOT a Selena hater, i don’t have anything against her, she’s cool and everything, and I’M MEXICAN but she keeps sayin’ she’s mexican and blah blah blah, why can’t she show us she’s mexican by talkin some spanish? no she can’t cause she doesn’t knows to speak it, so before she says anything she NEEDS to know spanish to represent latinas…

    notice she said they don’t get enough recognition. which is true. and the ones that do don’t even look latian. camerona diaz is highest paid actress of latina decent, and she looks fucking white. – not that there is anything wrong with it.
    —-
    what are you talking about?
    if they dont get the credit then they are not good.
    other than white and black people, the third is latino. to say that they don’t get credit, while ms.cruz and selma hayek (sp.) and the whole WOWP cast is latino is crazy. its dumb. she has no clue about other cultures. yes, europian decent is mostly dominated….but latin is very popular!
    shes a bitch to say that when there are soo many people that get recgonition for their work and are latino.
    Its other cultures turn to get some credit. At least Slumdog millionaire is doing that.

    “Oh im a selena-hater and i hate her because she got famous and stole my man. I’m so scared that she’s gonna take miley’s spotlight so that’s why i hate her. Oh yeah, i also hate her because she’s a good role model and doesn’t take nasty ass pictures of herself. ZOMG she’s fake too because she’s just herself, hate that bitch. I also hate her because summer of ’08 niley didn’t happen only nelena. damn taht bitch i wanted miley and jbs but i get selena + jbs. i hate her cuase she’s sucessful and im jealous”

    that’s what you fuckin haters sound like, now FUCK OFF!
    because selena just wants to entertain people she didn’t want this shit.

  • daelynne

    ofcourse she can say that but if i went on people magazine and said “it’s pretty neat to be white.” then everyone would FLIP out.

  • hahjdfjhbv

    how is being latina special not to be rude though. can someone tell me? i mean everyone has a culture so isnt chinese sooo special and isnt indian soooo special? can some one tell me?

    selena rocks!!!!!!!!

    Sigh. It’s funny yet kind of depressing to see all these ignorant comments. Haters are unfortunate…and apparently dumb.

  • Anonymous

    Me too!!!! and to the person that said why isn’t their a anglo-whatever magazine. Thjere are alot of those magazines in stores just look at the magazine section. Do you see them now? They dominate that section more than the minority ones. I’m actually proud that I’m black and I love to read Essence, Ebony, Jet, Vibe, Vibe Vixen, and Black Women. I’m also Puerto Rican, West Indian, Irish on my mom side, but I embrace my dad’s Cherokee black side more.

    PS to you stupid as Selena haters, you people need to get a life and stop trying to get on Selena for being herself. Just because her mother taught her how to have respect and that its ok to be a good girl does not mean you have to hate. maybe she is the way she is because of what happened to her mother and she didn’t want to be that statistic. You guys hate for the stupidest reasons .Do yourself a favor and GET A LIFE!!!!! I really don’t blame her for not doing things that would bring attention to her. That is actually very smart thing to do especially since Hollywood is known to ruin young stars. Just remember this: you guys wish you looked like her and had her life. So back the fuck up bitches. Oh yeah and you guys are only making her more famous. No…. forget what I said keep talking and hating!!!
    In the words of a very wise man by the name of Katt Williams:
    “So What he/she keep talking about you and hating on you .What do you think a haters job is… to hate. If you have somebody that is hating on you right now you better think of how to get 5 more ppl hatin by Christmas. You need haters to make you stronger. Without haters most people wouldn’t try to become better. Just tell them ‘Bitch, you just hate me because you can’t be me…..”
    Since everyone is in the quoting mood on Miley’s post, I figure Selena needs one too and I don’t hate anybody I don’t know.

    i love selena!
    but i just dont get why people in general are so proud to be latino
    i have nothing against latino, its just what so special?
    its like, cool you are what you are.
    im half irish and half italian
    and why isnt selena saying how great it is to be italian?
    im not running around screaming “im irish im irish!”
    and its not just selena
    and im not trying to disrespect mexican or lations its just like cool your latino we all have heritages were proud of,
    its sort of annoying how some people act like its better to be latino than any other heritage.
    —-

    well i think you just answered your own question “we all have heritages we’re proud of.” this is a latin magazine which expresses just that.

  • sdfsfd

    she’s a good actress

  • pelafina

    Yeah, but even then, sometimes you don’t pick it up. My mother/father and family speak spanish fluently, it was their first language, but me and my 2 sisters don’t speak it fluently.
    ——————–
    It also depends if they spoke Spanish around you often enough for you to pick it up.

    Like, I’m Hungarian, and my parents always speak to me in Hungarian so I don’t forget.

  • Lisa Lisa

    It’s sad that Selena has very white features. The only thing that makes her look “Hispanic” is her dark hair and eyes, pretty much nothing else. She has very pale skin, a perky nose…which just shoes how racist Hollywood still is. :/ Too bad she doesn’t know that, right?

    Latino is a very loose term, but it can’t be defined just be blood. You can look very, very Chinese or even have family from Jamaica. But if you grew around a community that shared culture from a Latin country (whether it be Cuba, Honduras, Argentina, Mexico…), and hopefully most of all, learned to speak some Spanish, than you are Latino/a.

    BTW, Selena Quintanilla is not an icon for all Latinos. I would say, for Tejano music (she is Queen of Tejano) and chicanos. You know, people with parents from Mexico but they are Americans and grew up in the USA. Go to Ecuador and tell them about Selena Q. and they’ll be all, oO.

    She gets to talk to the Quintanilla family? Now THAT is something I can be jealous of, lucky girl.

    she isn’t even half italian.
    she wouldve been 1/2 if her mum mandy WAS italian. but her mum’s only half italian.
    making gomez only 1/4 italian.
    and the rest is full mex baby!
    but why wouldn’t she admit that? sigh*

    or maybe she’s just looking for an excuse to cover up the fact that her body’s still not developed.
    saying she’s actually white.

I’m not a fan of Selena, but it’s people like you who are oblivious to see that she’s not intending for it to be a repetition to you. She doesn’t talk about her heritage 24/7.

    lmfao, “latina magazine”? just curious, is there also a “famous irish-american people” magazine? or how about a “white anglo-saxon protestants r us” one?

  • Anonymous

    what are you talking about?
    if they dont get the credit then they are not good.
    other than white and black people, the third is latino. to say that they don’t get credit, while ms.cruz and selma hayek (sp.) and the whole WOWP cast is latino is crazy. its dumb. she has no clue about other cultures. yes, europian decent is mostly dominated….but latin is very popular!
    shes a bitch to say that when there are soo many people that get recgonition for their work and are latino.
    Its other cultures turn to get some credit. At least Slumdog millionaire is doing that.

    no, because it’s the truth. how is that being a bitch? people like britney snow, and other untenanted bitches get tons more publicity that those who are of other decent.

    No, it’s not. I’m latina. And it’s not a big deal. Actually there’s still a lot of discrimination. People always think we’re drug dealers and stuff like that. It’s not so ‘neat’. But I like it. You have to love your heritage right?

    I am really getting sick of her! I mean there are so many latina actresses out there who DO get recognised and are EXTEREMLY FAMOUS,like Penelope Cruz/Jessica Alba/Salma Hayek/Ava Mendez/Jennifer Lopez (just to name a few). And i mean shes only a Disney teen, so why should people care if shes latina, we already know that. Im fully Irish and there are very few famous Irish actors/actresses out there but you ever hear Collin Farrel/Jonathan Rhys Myers/Liam Neeson complaining about the lack of irish actors or how “neat” it is to be Irish, and believe me, these guys are much more talented than Selena Gomez. I get being proud of your heritage, but dont complain or whine.

    I think its neat to be whatever you are. Whether it means your mexican, caucasion, native american, chinese, irish, italian, french, etc. we should all be proud of where we come from. I don’t understand why people are getting mad at her for being proud of where she comes from.

    If she really was proud and all that about her ethnicity which she keeps mentioning why doesn’t she ever do something which shows she appreciates it. At least Demi showed her hispanic roots by learning a song in spanish despite her translation. Selena isn’t the only one of that ethnicity so why is she the only one who keeps mentioning it?

    thats because its not the same thing. when have white people ever been treated unequal or discriminated against in history. its a much bigger deal to be famous and successful in this country if your a minority because we’v had to go through rough times just to be treated the same.

    It doesnt matter.
    If white people said that,Everyone WOULD go crazy.
    But thats just reality.
    ———–
    you missed the whole point of my comment.im not saying ppl wouldnt flip because they would. im giving you the reason why people would flip, which is what i said in my previous comment. its much harder to get ahead if your not white. racism and discrimination still exists so when a latino, black, asian or any other race besides white breaks those barriers and is successful its important for us to acknowledge our race and be proud of the things we’ve accomplished. the best example i can give to help you understand is barack obama. ask yourself..why is it important for him to acknowledge his ethinicty and then you should understand what im trying to explain to you

    she looks hideous in the second pic (and what is up with that outfit??)

    and in one of the top little things on one of the pages it says

    “unlike miley cyrus selena doesn’t come off as an annoying brat”

    um miley has given almost 3 million to charity (and has her own charity), has an inspirational song that reached number two on iTunes, has made tons of videos thanking her fans, always is sweet to paparazzi (where selena acts to good for them), never complains unless asked about haters where selena does complain, and miley goes around with no make-up and selena never does.

    i’d say nice try pereez, but i’d be lying

    and why isnt selena saying how great it is to be italian?
    im not running around screaming “im irish im irish!”
    and its not just selena
    and im not trying to disrespect mexican or lations its just like cool your latino we all have heritages were proud of,

    so who are people going to blame now for selena being on mag. covers. last time it was nick and miley. since apparently her ‘fame went down’ once she stopped dating him. so why the mag. covers again? people can be pathetic with the stuff they think of. never willing to give credit where credit is due.

    It’s not HER who keeps talking about it a lot. It’s Oceanup who keeps posting this article. It’s not her fault either that you even comment on this post and surround yourself with Selena-related posts. It’s only been posted twice so I don’t know why you’re even complaining so much? I’m not a fan of Selena, but it’s people like you who are oblivious to see that she’s not intending for it to be a repetition to you. She doesn’t talk about her heritage 24/7.
