“This is yet another step in making sure that her legacy lives on and that her fans new and old can appreciate her as a person, an artist, and one whom we can all identify with,” said Suzette Arriaga, Selena's sister.

The decision to create the statue comes at the heels of a Change.org petition, which was signed by nearly 10,000 people.

Besides getting her own wax figure, Selena is getting her own MAC makeup line this October, and she's also receiving a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2017.
