Biography

Mexico City, Mexico (1992 – present)

Paulina Susana Rubio (born June 17, 1971 in Mexico City) is a Mexican singer and television personality. She is the daughter of Susana Dosamantes, a Mexican actress of soap operas. Rubio’s music is popular in Latin America, Spain, United States, Europe and Asia. She began her career when she was nine years old in 1980, debuting with a music group called Timbiriche, recording ten albums with them. Rubio turned to acting in soap operas on Televisa. She landed her first role in 1988, as a villain in Pasion y poder (“Passion and Power”). In 1990 she starred in “Baila Conmigo”, and in 1994 she made her film debut in the low-budget Mexican film called “Bésame en la Boca” and in 1995 she starred in the Soap Opera “Pobre Niña Rica” (Poor Rich Girl).

In 1990, Rubio left Timbiriche and focused on launching a solo career. In 1992, she released her first album titled “La chica dorada”. In 1993 she released “24 kilates”. In 1995, “El tiempo es oro”. In 1996 she released “Planeta Paulina” and in 2000, “Paulina”. This album was nominated at the second annual Latin Grammy Awards, and in 2002 “Border girl”, which included her first foray into English language-Pop. Her smash hit “Don’t Say Goodbye” rose to the number one spot on the Billboard list. Although her debut English album did not launch her into superstardom, it did give Paulina the international recognition she sought for years.
