Jenni Rivera quotes

10 Dec

From OC Weekly – 2003

“They’re going to think of a woman who’s real,” Rivera says when asked how she will be remembered. “They’ll think about a woman who went through hell and back and never gave up. No one else has ever opened doors for me—I opened them myself. And people have a problem with women who do that. They have a problem when we’re no longer as passive and submissive as, say, their mothers were growing up. Too bad. I say what I say, and I do what I do. I’m me.

 

From her last interview hours before her death

“I can’t get caught up in the negative because that destroys you. Perhaps trying to move away from my problems and focus on the positive is the best I can do. I am a woman like any other and ugly things happen to me like any other woman,” she said Saturday night. “The number of times I have fallen down is the number of times I have gotten up.”

 

From her song “Mi Vida Loca” from the CD “Mi Vida Loca II”

“Que hablen y digan lo que quieran al fin que les importa a si como soy yo … Voy a regresar a Playa Larga (Long Beach) voy a visitar al barrio que llevo en mi corazon”
