Someone else shared a photo of their Selena collection.

OK, real talk, I want to raid this fan's Selena collection. They have Selena's Dreaming Of You on vinyl. A giant poster hanging in their room. They even have a copy of Selena's iconic Texas Monthly issue, featuring her studded bustier. LOVE.

Clutching my heart!

Another fan shared — are you ready for this? — images of Selena as Disney princesses. I can't!!! Selena dressed up as Princess Jasmine, Mulan, Cinderella, and Pocahontas is giving me so many feelings, I need to go make Alexa play "Como La Flor" and dance my heart out.


Rest in peace, Selena. May your memory and songs give your fans comfort, now and always.
