1209-jenni-rivera-gettyJenni Rivera died early this morning in Mexico after the plane she was flying on crashed shortly after takeoff, leaving no survivors. She was 43.

Rivera's father and brother confirmed her death on Telemundo.

Four other passengers and two pilots were also aboard the plane. It was headed from Monterrey to Toluca, after Rivera performed in Monterrey on Saturday night.

Mexico's transportation ministry says the plane lost contact with radar at 3:15 AM, approximately 61 miles from Monterrey.

Rivera was named one of the 25 most powerful women by People en Español and reportedly signed on recently to do a comedy pilot for ABC. She has sold over 20 million albums worldwide.

Richie Valens did not die because he was cheap. The plane was rented by Buddy Holly and that was the only way that they would have been able to make their gig. The weather was horrific that night. People blame pilot error for the crash.

It should read, "...the plane she was flying IN..." not "on".

Well, here's the problem. The story claims she was 'on' the plane. Best to be in them during flight.
