"People like that don't come along every day," Lopez told Billboard, reflecting on the young singer's legacy on the 20th anniversary of her death. "There is never going to be another Selena. The grace with which she handled the business, the grace with which she handled her life, the humor. Her spirit of loving what she did. Her sense of family. That's the tragedy of everything that ­happened and why she left such an imprint -- because she was gone way too soon."
