She is known in Mexico and Ibero-America as an original member of the pop group Timbiriche from 1981 through 1991.

Her debut album, La Chica Dorada (1992) was released under EMI Music, followed by 24 Kilates (1993). Her follow-up albums, El tiempo es oro (1995) and Planeta Paulina (1996) helped Rubio become better known in Latin America. Rubio's departure from EMI Music happened in the same year due to personal conflicts with the label.

Her follow-up albums, Pau-Latina (2004) and Ananda (2006) consolidated Rubio internationally as one of the most successful Mexican super stars in the world. Her ninth album, Gran City Pop (2009) had a fresh and original concept, and focused in vision, to reflect Paulina's life and musical experiences she had while traveling the world. Her latest album Brava! (2011) focuses in electronic genres. In 2012, Rubio served as a coach on the second season of La Voz...Mexico. The following year, she served as a coach on La Voz Kids and as a judge on the third season of the American version of The X Factor.

According to E! Entertainment, the singer reached number twelve on the 25 hottest Pop Divas.
As Rubio says "I have been famous since I was born", as she is the daughter of Mexican actress Susana Dosamantes and Enrique Rubio, a lawyer. Rubio was born in Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico. Rubio has a younger brother named Enrique.

On 30 April 2007, she married public relations executive Nicolás "Colate" Vallejo Nájera in Xcaret, a park on the Mayan Riviera in Cancún, Quintana Roo.

On 5 May 2010, Paulina announced through Twitter that she is expecting her first child. Her brother, Enrique Rubio, has corrected the statement that she is supposedly expecting twins, which is not true. Paulina has stated that if the child is a boy, he shall be named after his father, Nicolás. If it is a girl, she will be named after Rubio's great-grandmother, Micaela. On 15 September 2010 Paulina announced on her Twitter page that she is expecting a boy. On Sunday, 14 November 2010, Paulina and her husband Nicolás Vallejo-Nájera welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Andrea Nicolás Vallejo-Nájera Rubio in Miami, Florida. Prior to the birth Paulina had planned on having a water birth at home, but was rushed to the hospital and spent the weekend with doctors working to stabilize the health of the baby. Hospital staff tried to send Rubio home so that she could realize her dream of a natural home birth, but the complications lead her medical team to schedule a c-section.

On 11 January 2011, her father, Enrique Rubio González, died at the age of 67 in a Mexico City hospital. A consensus of various news sources have attributed his death to kidney failure.

In March 2012, Paulina's husband, Colate, told Hola! that he and Paulina are separating after nearly five years of marriage. "It has been a decision by both of us, though it’s possible that I have been more firm when it came to carrying it out," he said in an interview with the Spanish publication."I have the feeling there is no going back," Vallejo-Nagera said, disclosing that he and Rubio have been living apart since November and that their only communication with each other is about their son, Andrea Nicolas, born in November 2010. Colate said that while he will always be "grateful to Paulina" for their time together, his devotion to the marriage caused his business interests to suffer. "I decided to help and support my wife, which has caused me many problems that are costing me very dearly," he said.
