Fans React To Young Beyoncé Depicted In ‘Selena: The Series’ Part 2

The Beyhive is buzzing over the appearance of a young Beyoncé in Netflix’s scripted “Selena: The Series” part two.

The streaming service premiered, earlier this week, the sophomore season of its TV show depicting the life of legendary musician Selena Quintanilla. The second season shows a scene where Selena meets a loyal fan at a Houston mall in the ’90s. That fan would one day come to be known as Beyoncé.

The interaction most likely happened in real life; however, some creative liberties may have been taken with the specifics of the encounter.

“I didn’t say much to Selena because I wasn’t a celebrity and I just say her and said ‘hello’ and kept it moving,” Beyoncé said in a now-resurfaced interview. “Definitely growing up in Texas, I heard her on the radio and I think listening to her album, even though I didn’t know exactly what she was singing, it helped me in the studio with my pronunciation.”

“I think she is a legend and I admire her, and she was so talented. So, I’m very happy that — even though she didn’t know who I was,” she added. “I’m still so  excited that I got that opportunity.”

Either way, members of the Beyhive were thrilled to see fictional versions of Beyoncé, Solange Knowles and Tina Knowles appear in “Selena”.
