Is Selena Gomez Dead Or Alive?
Let’s check out the real reason behind it. The fans should clear the air. Many of the people don’t know why exactly it was trending. Some started to think how could she pass away so soon especially when she has started dedicating time for her health and cancelled the tour. (check: Vikings Season 4 Episode 11.)
The situation arose because people took it wrong and got mistaken with the identities. The 24-year-old singer is alive and doing well. The death of Selena Gomez is just another hoax. (check: Doctor Who Season 10 Release Date and Updates.)
The real reason behind starting of the tag was to remember Latina singer Selena Quintanilla who is popularly known as the “Queen of Tejano Music.” Her song Dreaming of You became a hit of her time and it brought many records. Yolando Salvidar, the president of Selena fan club shot her dead on 31st March 1995. (check: Narcos Season 3 Release Date and Trailer Out.)
The fans of Gomez who are well aware of the original reason were quick to point out the same. They revealed the truth on Twitter and after that people stopped tweeting without any good reason.
