Paulina Rubio held a press conference in Mexico yesterday to promote her new album, Gran City Pop, and (of course) could not avoid questions about the biggest news story of the day, Michael Jackson's memorial service.

It seems that Paulina loved the deceased pop star, and she even went so far as to hope that she can be remembered in a similar fashion, saying, "Michael Jackson was the King of Pop and now a new era must begin. His legacy, his music. ... I hope that when I die, even though I am physically gone, that my music and my legacy will live on as well."

She continued, explaining how she hopes her music can help define a generation and be sung for years to come: "I hope my music will be remembered as songs made for a generation and will continue to be sung, that it speaks to the moment and to our identity."

About this author

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
