Selena, A.B, and Suzette were quite inseparable from the beginning. During an interview with POPSUGAR, Suzette explained,
"That was our most time spent together. We spent more time in the bus than we did at home," Suzette said. "Late nights after the gigs, she would wipe off her makeup, she would eat something, and then she would come and crawl in our bunk, and we would just talk. About her makeup line, her dreams, her being a mother, her being married to Chris — just about life, what families and what sisters normally do. That for me was my special moment."
A number of celebs paid tribute to the late Selena as they dressed just like her. Celebrities including Kim Kardashian, America Ferrera, and Demi Lovato looked just like Selena to pay their heartfelt condolence.
"Wel, a lot of people don't know this but I'm really good friends with Adrienne Bailon, and she was with the Cheetah Girls. Adrienne at the time, back in the day, she was dating Rob [Kardashian]. She had Rob on the phone, and he was with Kourtney [Kardashian], and all of them were in the background singing my sister's music. They're big fans of our music from way back."
Though Selena is not among us, she'll remain in our heart forever!
