That Girl Lay Lay made her television debut this week in her Nickelodeon series of the same name. She plays an avatar in a motivational app that comes to life.

Lay Lay is Houston through and through, so much so that she had to work to decrease her “Houston twang”. It may also explain his love for Selena. Lay Lay wore a Selena shirt during a photoshoot at the Houston Chronicle earlier this year and says she often calls the late singer her “godmother.”

Lay Lay was introduced to Selena in the 1997 film and says she still cries every time. Watch the video above to see Lay Lay explain why Selena is so important to her.
