    If Selena wins any of those awards, it’s because all of her kid fans constantly voted for her, whom are to naive to realize talent.

    @ryannnn: Christina Aguilera DOES NOT speak Spanish. She was in a TV show in Mexico and needed a translator:

    There is another video where she is reading the words in Spanish and can’t even get it right. So YOU STFU and do some research before posting stupid comments. How can she be consider Latina if she can’t even speak the language?

    really talking about who’s younger or older or prettier etc? that’s not what these awards are about it’s about who did great in there moives,musics,etc, Yes, Christina and Selena are both great at it. But I voted for Christina Aguilera she did fantastic job in the moive Burlesque and On The Hit Show The Voice as a judge . So I hope that Christina can win but what also counts are votes so Selena has huge chance in winning! So congrat’s to both of them and the rest of the people who got nods. Stop hating or being neg and go vote for your favorite!!

    @laverdadduele: So what if Christina can’t speak Spanish. Neither can J-Lo, she’s said it several times in interviews with media and neither could Selena Quintanilla Perez who kicked off her career singing Latin music but not being able to actually speak it.

    It’s generally what happens when you’re raised in a dispersed community. You lose your language but you still hold onto your heritage.

    So knowing this, does that mean J-Lo and Selena shouldn’t be considered Latin artists either?

    Why is Christina considered less Latin American than those two by people like you?

    ness Says:

    neither of them even speak spanish…i doubt they can even understand it. Demi Lovato should be nominated…She’s more Latin without even being as Latin. When She sings in Spanish i believe it

    laverdadduele Says:

    @Azk: I don’t consider Jennifer Lopez or Selena Quintanilla latinas. If you were born in this wonderful country you are AMERICAN, regardless of where your ancestors came from or what your last name is, nothing wrong with that. Salma Hayek, Shakira, and Sofia Vergara are true latinas, born in Latin American countries, Spanish is their first language, and started their careers in Latin America. Being latina is more than speaking Spanish, it’s about your culture, your roots, and where your heart is.

    She Stinks! Says:

    No talent JHO Bag will never beat any of these other girls when it comes to singing. She cannot sing. Period. Nails down a blackboard sound better.

    christinalover Says:

    christina aguilera is the best. she deserves at lest those 3 awards. you are all stupid haters saying selena is looking younger than christina. christina is the most beautiful woman on the planet, selena is no competition for her!

    nkenk Says:

    @laverdadduele: why do you always post such stupid ignorant comments? being a certain ethnicity isn’t only based on if you speak a language or not if then people could switch in and out of ethnicities whenever they want.

    sammy Says:

    Christina is one of the greatest female vocalists the world has ever heard! I cannot believe they put selena in the same category as christina. She cannot hold a candle to her! Selena has 0 talent! And anyone who votes selena over christina has some real problems!

  46. 46
    She Stinks! Says:

    @sammy: Agreed, but JHO Bag ? That worn out trash could never sing, dance or act. She has zero talent and should be working as a Motel 6 maid. Low rent. Low class. Just trash you see hanging around the gutter on 42nd street.

  47. 47
    sammy Says:

    @She Stinks!: You mean Jennifer Lopez? I agree Jlo may not be the best singer and is no where near christina’s level but she isn’t all that bad. Jlo can dance. Selena can’t do crap! She is just a pretty face. Whitney Houston and Christina Aguilera are the greatest singers!

    joe Says:


    ughhh how can u compare that old hag jlow to Selena, just cause she “dances” those moves are all Janet Jacksons anyways, at least selena sings live & b4 u aregue that look at jlow 29yrs old with her 1st single that her record co paid stations to play..all the lip synch she did with that album. pLEASE!! and to top it off when Jlow was 19 she had no recognition Selena has at this age, and Selena is talented, didnt have to lie manipulate and sleep with ppl for her “career” that jlow did in her late 20′s- 40′s pfffffffffff
