Paulina Rubio was beaming when she arrived (more than an hour late) with her husband, businessman Nicolás Vallejo-Nágera, to the Latino Commission on AIDS’s offices in New York. The 35-year-old singer was chosen as the Mexican madrina of the non-profit organization devoted to fighting that disease.
“I’m thrilled to be here (…) I want to offer my support and educate people about this disease, which does not discriminate,” she said, after calling on everyone to get tested for AIDS every three months. “Today marks a month since my wedding, and everyone should get tested before getting married,” she answered to show she hopes to lead by example.
Regarding her married life, the socalled Golden Girl conceded that although she still doesn’t know how to cook, in the last few weeks, she’s learned to “keep quiet.”
When asked if she’s changed much now that she is Mrs. Vallejo-Nágera, she emphasized she’s still the same: “My priorities have changed, not the essence of who I am,” she added.
