Saturday May 18, 2002

LOS ANGELES — Mexican singer Paulina Rubio has topped People en Espanol’s list of the ”25 Most Beautiful” Latin entertainers. 

The Spanish-language offshoot of People magazine announced Tuesday that next week’s cover will feature the singer, whose album “Paulina” was a top-seller on last year’s Latin music charts. 

“Paulina is not only beautiful and sexy but she has that star-quality that will certainly put her on the map.... She is destined to be the next breakout performer,” said Angelo Figureoa, managing editor of People en Espanol. 

The 30-year-old pop star and former Mexican television actress is set to release her first English-language album, “Border Girl,” in June. 

Others named to the fifth annual list include Grammy-winning Spanish singer Enrique Iglesias, “NYPD Blue” actor Esai Morales, “Rush Hour 2” co-star Roselyn Sanchez, “The Other Half” co-host Mario Lopez and “The Sopranos” co-star Jamie Lynn Sigler. 

The magazine’s ”25 Most Beautiful” cover featured Colombian pop star Shakira last year.
