I had never heard of Jenni Rivera until after the news reported that a Mexican singer died in a plane crash. It is a tragic story, no matter whether she was not well-known in most of the U.S, no matter that she was a single mother of 5, no matter what she sang about.....the fact is that she was loved and appreciated by many. People should stop being so ignorant and learn to be more compassionate. At the end of the day, she was still a human being. How are we supposed to make the world a better place when it is full of critism? We need to learn to love, to give and be grateful for all we have as we do not know when our blessings can be taken away from us. Peace and love to all.

Go on the internet and check out the following facts:  Lupillo Rivera beat his wife up - One of his other brothers also beat up a fan of Jennies at a concert - Jenni had a foul mouth on her when she got upset with her fans, so foul that a prostitute was no competition for her.  I could go on and on about her family but what for?  What I don't understand is why people get upset when you post the truth about their so called Diva's and or Superstars, of which this deceased person was neither of.  Google it people, I am only stating the truth.

Yeah I liked her porn films also :))  As far as her being a diva, no way in hell.  She was only known to her Mexican fans in Mexico and some of her Mexican American fans here in the U.S., so how is can you consider her a diva.  She had a foul mouth on her when things didn't go her way. Her brother Lupillo R. beats up on women and the rest of them like to beat up on people in general when things also don't go their way.  The truth is that they are all a disfunctional family who got lucky with her, seeing as how she left them all a lot of money.   With her gone they will all just fade away.  HEY, but she made some good porn films.  Good for her.
