American super singer Beyonce has a fan following that can work wonder in terms of the popularity of any showbiz outing as an appearance by Queen Bey in the trailer for the new season of the Netflix series 'Selena' has made it an instant hit.
The trailer for the new season of the Netflix series Selena was released this week. Beyonce and her mother, Tina Knowles, feature in the new season. The second season of the series follows the life of the late singer Selena Quintanilla.
The trailer reveals the plot in which the Tex-Mex queen, having risen to international fame, is seen going through difficult times in her personal life.
In bioseries, fact usually meets fiction. However, it is a real-life incident that a meeting between a very young Beyoncé and Selena did take place in real life. In an interview a few years ago for MTV, Queen Bey herself mentioned the incident, pointing out that Selena has been a great influence on her throughout her life.
"I met Selena at the Galleria Mall in Houston. But I didn't tell her much because I wasn't famous back then," Queen B recalled.
Both Grammy winners were born and raised in Texas. Beyonce recalled she looked up to Selena for inspiration. "Definitely growing up in Houston I would listen to her on the radio, AND listening to her album, even though I didn't know exactly what she sang, it helped me a lot in the studio. I think she was a legend and I look up to her," Queen Bey reminisced.
The trailer shows the meeting at a mall. Catching sight of Selena, Beyoncé asks her mother, "Who is she?" "I just saw her, waved and went on my way," Beyonce added.
