The subculture of Selena Quintanilla Pérez super-fandom, or Selenidad , was born out of grief. After the Queen of Tejano music was murdered on March 31st, 1995 — shot once in the back by the president of her fan club, Yolanda Saldivar — her Mexican American fans mourned her. For some it was like a close relative had been assassinated and an untouchable, living religious diva was extinguished before she could perform her miracles. When Dreaming of You , her first English-language album, was released posthumously that summer, it sold over 175,000 copies in a single day and eventually over 3 million copies. In her home state of Texas, they painted large murals of her, erected a statue, named a park in her honor and made her Corpus Christi music studio into a museum. All these decades later, fans still put her photos up on their Día De Muertos ofrendas and dress up in her most famous outfits on the anniversary of her death.

Mehdi Rajabian once had his own recording studio in Sari, Iran , boasting moody overhead lighting and blond wood walls. Now, he spends most of his time in the dark basement of his home, crouching on a pile of rugs in front of a computer and a keyboard. Despite being functionally under house arrest since August 2020 , Rajabian has been obsessively piecing together an album that’s become his singular dream — one that could also land him back in the most notorious prison in Iran. “Despite all the restrictions and prohibitions, I will complete the album,” Rajabian, 31, tells Rolling Stone . “Maybe that will lead to a return to prison, but it really does not matter to me. I am doomed to produce music.” Related Stories Iranian Musicians Prep 'Homanity' Compilation to Raise Awareness of Censorship, Persecution of Artists Biden Wants to Return to In-Person School, May Use NFL Stadiums for Mass Vaccinations Related Stories High Goods: … [Read more...] about ‘I Am Doomed to Produce Music’: Inside One Iranian Artist’s Fight for Creative Freedom
The Food and Drug Administration is preparing to authorize use of the Pfizer-BioNTech Covid -19 vaccine in kids 12 to 15 years old as soon as next week, according to federal officials via the New York Times .

Before LeBron James chose to join the Miami Heat and form a super team in the Sunshine State, he was the National Basketball Assn.’s hottest free agent ever. As such, teams were pulling out all the stops to lure his talents. That included the New York Knicks, who recruited James Gandolfini and Edie Falco to reprise their roles as Tony Soprano and wife Carmela in a short film designed to appeal to James. The never-seen film was shot in 2010, three years after the acclaimed HBO series ended and three years before Gandolfini unexpectedly passed away in June 2013. The Sopranos ended ambiguously, leaving viewers wondering about Tony’s fate when a tense moment in a diner suddenly faded to black. The existence of the short was revealed yesterday on rapper Chuck D’s podcast, Shattered: Hope, Heartbreak and the New York Knicks , “I couldn’t believe that it didn’t work,” said Falco, speaking on the podcast. “Not so much because of The Sopranos . I just thought, it’s … [Read more...] about James Gandolfini’s Tony Soprano Tried To Make LeBron James An Offer He Couldn’t Refuse
