3 women who rocked Selena costumes for Halloween


One of the most famous women in the world paid tribute to a Texas musical icon with her Halloween costume. Reality TV star Kim Kardashian West joined countless other girls and women celebrating the life of Selena Quintanilla Perez by recreating one of her signature looks for Halloween. 

Kardashian West spent the festive weekend in multiple costumes of other famous women in music. She dressed as Cher, Aaliyah, and Madonna before donning Selena’s signature purple jumpsuit. 

Pop star and native Texan Demi Lovato also showed love for the Tejano singer in her Selena costume, complete with hoop earrings. 

But if there was an award for the best Selena costume of Halloween 2017, it would definitely go to the duo in a viral tweet showing a woman dressed as Selena and a man dressed as a fan carrying a car bumper. The costume references one of the most famous scenes in the biopic “Selena” when the singer’s bus gets stuck in a ditch and a fan tries to tow it out only to get his own car bumper pulled off. 

Another line from the film rings true, even twenty years later. “I want the whole world, dancing to my music and wearing my clothes,” says Jennifer Lopez, who stars as Selena.

It’s safe to say, people are doing exactly that.

I tried one of IHOP's new Steakburgers, and something's missing

The problem arose as soon as I asked the IHOP server if I could order my burger medium-rare. He shifted in place for a second before telling me that he has repeatedly asked the kitchen to do exactly that and the cooks always reject the request. Then he looked up at the ceiling, as if he couldn't even meet my eyes as he delivered the bad news. I sort...
