Hit the Floor star Valery Ortiz says Selena Quintanilla-Pérez inspired her to finish what the late singer started.
On Tuesday, the 20th anniversary of the Selena’s death, HipHollywood caught up with Ortiz on the set of her VH1 show to talk about how the pop star changed her life as an entertainer. “I’m Latina and to see somebody again, gone too soon who was just on the brink of taking over the world.”
“People like Stephanie [Moseley], like Selena, so many countless others, they’re the ones who inspire us and keep that light in us to be like ‘you know what, they started something,” the Puerto Rica native said, also referring to her late co-star Stephanie Moseley who was shot and killed by her husband in December 2014.”I’m going to use what they put out there, that energy, and like ‘lets do this.'”
Season 3 of Hit the Floor is set to air this fall.
