5. SELENA

Gone but never forgotten, Selena was a Mexican-American icon who released multiple gold-selling albums, won numerous awards, and had a gang of endorsement deals. Her life was tragically cut short when she was murdered by her batshit crazy fan club manager, Yolanda Saldivar. Jennifer Lopez then played her in a 1997 biopic, a move that caused a bit of controversy among those who felt an actress with Mexican roots should have played the singer. R.I.P. regardless!
