Selena Gomez Rocks a Selena Quintanilla T-Shirt -- See the Pic!
Selena Gomez is paying tribute to Selena Quintanilla!
The 25-year-old singer was spotted rocking a Selena T-shirt while getting coffee with a friend in Los Angeles on Thursday. Gomez accessorized her look with an oversized denim jacket, black leggings and white sneakers.
Gomez, who was named after Selena, opened up about her connection to the late singer in a 2016 radio interview with Sacramento's NOW 100.5.
"My dad and mom were huge fans,” explained Gomez, who was just two years old when Quintanilla died. “My name was going to be Priscilla, but my cousin actually took the name when she was born six months before me. They actually loved [Selena’s] music, so they just named me after her.”
“I grew up and I went to her grave, I got to go to her house,” Gomez said of the icon's influence. “It was really crazy. And then when I started working, I remember I got to meet her family and I just got super emotional 'cause it’s so crazy to see how far everything... I don’t know, like where she’d be right now. It’s nuts.”
ET was with Quintanilla's family at her Hollywood Walk of Fame ceremony last year. Watch below.
