"In the bathroom, there's two stickers Selena pasted next to the sink before she died. One said, `Selena and Chris [Perez] Forever' and the other said, `I Love You Chris.' It's not intentional, but the whole house is a shrine to Selena."
"My only goal was to put a real human being on the screen," says writer/director Gregory Nava. "I wanted to tell the truth, and I think that's what we've done.... You can't find anyone willing to say anything bad about Selena. She never said no to a fan. She'd stay until the last autograph was signed. In fact, that might have been her tragic flaw. She believed the best about everybody, even Yolanda Saldivar, who shot her in the back."
It was a spring day in Corpus Christi, Texas, when the 23-year-old Selena Quintanilla Perez agreed to meet Saldivar, her former fan-club president, in a local motel. Saldivar had already been accused of embezzling money from Selena, but the singer refused to believe her friend was dishonest. So she met with Saldivar one last time to hear Saldivar's side of the story.
