Paulina Rubio vs. Thalia: Are Tequila Shots in Their Future?
By Mariela Rosario | 02/19/2010 - 11:14

Paulina Rubio and Thalia have been beefing for years. It all started back in the day, when the pop stars were sharing the spotlight in the Mexican teeny bopper band Timbriche. Apparently, a misunderstanding about a microphone between Thalia and La Chica Dorado caused the two to come to blows right in the middle of a performance. The audience responded by taking sides, with half chanting for Thalia, and half standing up for Paulina.

Mexican Singer Thalia Tones it Down
By Grace Bastidas | 10/19/2009 - 11:27

Thalia looks like a full-fledged mommy in the new video for “Equivocada,” the first single from her upcoming CD/DVD Thalia en Primera Fila, out Dec. 1 on Sony. Before giving birth to her daughter, Sabrina Sakaë, two years ago, the 38-year-old Mexican pop star was more of a hot mamacita with her navel-grazing tops, shimmery outfits and bombshell coifs. But these days she’s dressing decidedly casual.

Thalía: “I Want to Become a Puppeteer!”
By Lee Hernandez | 07/14/2009 - 17:00

Mexican attract-tress Thalía (whom I grew up watching on the brilliant telenovela MariMar) does a lot of different things: She’s a singer, she owns a clothing line (courtesy of K-Mart), she works as a radio personality and she just released a book for new mothers called Thalía Radiante: The Ultimate Guide to a Fit and Fabulous Pregnancy. But do I—he who is consumed by and obsessed only with television—care at all about any of that?

Curly Qs: Retrospective
By Sandra Mariscal | 07/01/2009 - 13:30

I love my curly hair now, although I wasn’t a fan of my locks growing up. My friends all had sleek straight hair and most of my family members have wavy hair. I felt awkward. I didn’t understand why I couldn’t get a brush through my tight curls, while all the other girls could comb their hair during recess. More often than not, I ended up pulling it into a ponytail.
