More Info

Paquita La Del Barrio: Paquita La Del Barrio a Mexican singer of rancheras and other Mexican styles. She was born in Alto Lucero, Veracruz in 1947. She started her career in Ciudad de México in 1970. Her songs usually take a stance against Mexico's sexist male culture. This has made her popular among female audiences. Her signature phrase, with which she often teases male spectators in her shows, is "¿Me estás oyendo, inútil?" ("Are you listening to me, you good-for-nothing?"). Many of Paquita's albums and songs are jukebox staples in Mexican clubs and cantinas. One of her best known songs is Rata de dos patas (Eng: "Two-legged rat"), in which she uses a rat as a metaphor for a man. Many admirers, particularly outside Mexico, also appreciate her for her camp value. Paquita la del Barrio was married twice. Her first marriage ended when she discovered her husband's infidelity. Her second marriage lasted 31 years, and ended with her husband's death in 2000. Paquita duets with singer Ricardo Arjona on "Ni Tu Ni Yo" on his "5to Piso" CD from 2008.
