Demi Lovato Says Selena Quintanilla-Pérez Taught Her It's Okay To Do This As a Pop Star

Demi Lovato celebrated the legacy of Mexican-American singer Selena Quintanilla-Pérez on the anniversary of her passing on Tuesday (March 31).

The 27-year-old entertainer wore a t-shirt with Selena on it and took to Instagram to share a specific thing she learned about being a pop star.

“This scene taught me at a young age, it’s okay to eat pizza as a popstar. It sounds insignificant but having struggled for years with an eating disorder, this impacted me in a way I never forgot,” Demi said about a scene of Jennifer Lopez eating pizza from the movie Selena.

Selena lived her truth everyday. She didn’t care what people thought of her and she lived her life according to her values: music and family. She broke barriers as a Latina woman and as an artist,” she continued.

“Her love for her family and husband was so beautiful and will live on through her music and legacy forever,” Demi concluded.
