Selena's Amazing Fan Base Made Her New MAC Collection A Real Thing
Yesterday, 90s kids everywhere collectively lost their minds after cosmetics giant MAC announced its newest collection will be inspired by none other than the late, great Selena.
Details about the collection, set for release next year, are scarce, but I do know it was Selena's devoted fans who made the inspired collection a reality.
This year marks the 20th anniversary of the Latina singer's death, and in February, fans began a Change.org petition that called for the makeup company to create a cosmetics collection in her honor.
The petition collected over 37,000 signatures and sparked #SELENAQUINTANILLAforMAC.
For MAC, that was more than enough encouragement.
Senior Vice President James Gager confirmed the news in a statement yesterday. He said,
Selena's talent and beauty, inside and out, have left a colorful, meaningful impact in the world that has continued to grow over the last two decades. We have heard the passion and enthusiasm from her fans and wholeheartedly agree that her legacy embodies MAC's philosophy.
Naturally, after MAC's surprise announcement, Twitter flooded with posts from excited fans.
The significance of this Selena line is huge. This all started from a petition. This is big for the Latin community! #MACSelena
