“Tacky Mecca for Over-The-Top Selena Fans”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Selena may of been a wonderful person and talented artist, yet it's sad to see the hagiography that's sprung up around her and her often annoying fans.
The statue is pretty tacky and looks cheap (but with a wonder bra) while being covered in seagull droppings. While you're there you'll typically be accompanied by trashy, over-the-top Selena fans who are crying, wailing and taking a million pictures as though they're visiting a holy relict or something.
If you're in Corpus, it's worthwhile going just to be amused by the people visiting it, but it's sad to see what's happened to her legacy.

“Looking to get away”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

Nothing special. I think she is looking away from downtown Corpus Christi from embarrassment, and looking out to see longing for escape.

“Tribute to Selena”

Such a beautiful sculpture of our Tejano Princess. I really hope it last the test of time for years to come for younger generations to appreciate.
