The Latin Grammy Awards took place in Las Vegas on Thursday night, giving Enrique Iglesias his first Latin Grammy wins since his award for Best Male Pop Vocal Album for Quizás in 2003.

Enrique Iglesias may be 36, but don’t tell him that — he’s still young, brash, and just a little bit reckless in the new video for his whistle-happy single “I Like How It Feels,” which debuted online today.
The clip, directed by Iglesias himself, plays a lot like the intro to an MTV travel series or a Kickstarter campaign clip. It kind of makes you want to windsurf on the Dominican coast while feeding orphans and drinking coconut water, you know?
Strewn throughout the tour footage are glimpses of stars like Serena Williams, Ken Jeong, and Eva Longoria; featured rapper Pitbull also stops by to lay down a verse — and hawk his own vodka brand, of course.

Enrique Iglesias has really been on a roll in the singles department.
Coming off the success of last year’s “I Like It,” Iglesias has spent the entirety of 2011 knocking shots out of the park, including the filthy-minded “Tonight,” the Usher-assisted “Dirty Dancer,” and the recently unveiled Pitbull-fueled “I Like How It Feels.”
Just for kicks, he’s pulled the curtain back on “Mouth 2 Mouth,” which is neither a guide to giving CPR to a heart attack victim nor a b-side from Prince’s unpronounceable symbol period. Rather, it’s an elastic, double-groovy duet with Jennifer Lopez (another singer who seems to turn everything she touches to gold this year, Fiat commercials notwithstanding).
The track will appear on Iglesias’ deluxe reissue of his 2010 album Euphoria, helpfully titled Euphoria Reloaded. Give it a spin after the jump. READ FULL STORY
A string of hits that included “Be With You” and “Hero” solidified him as a superstar here in America. That meteoric rise is chronicled in the latest episode of VH1’s Behind the Music: Enrique Iglesias, which will air on the cable network Sunday, July 31, at 10 p.m. EW has the exclusive preview clip of the hour-long episode.
“My first album had just sold, like, six and a half million copies in Spanish,” Iglesias remembers in the preview clip, “and two million in the U.S. with the Spanish album, which was crazy.” The clip also features an interview from a much-younger Iglesias, talking about his pre-fame romantic trials back in 1999. “Before I was a singer, I used to get dumped all the time,” he says. “Suddenly, you become a singer, and someone’s sex life can definitely get a lot better.”
The episode, of course, also retraces the rest of Iglesias’ career and what led him to sell more than 58 million records worldwide. Iglesias discusses how he came to be the man he is today, what the people in his life mean to him, and his 10-year relationship with tennis superstar Anna Kournikova. Plus: He reveals his thoughts on the rumors and issues that have plagued him during his career.
EW has the exclusive first look at the episode here:
After killing the dreams of fans hoping to get a two-for-one bang for their pop-loving bucks through his reps, Enrique Iglesias took to his WhoSay page to apologize to those who thought they’d see him and fellow star Britney Spears on tour together this summer.
“Hey guys, sorry for the confusion regarding a possible tour in the summer with Britney Spears,” he wrote. “We are on the Euphoria Tour and will continue to do so including some soon-to-be-announced dates in US. So hope to see all of you soon.”
Guess we’ll have to wait for Iglesias and Spears to hit a town near us separately. What do you think? Let us know.

Britney Spears’ announcement while performing this morning on ABC’s Good Morning America that she would be touring this summer with Enrique Iglesias seems to have been a bit premature: Iglesias’ reps just released a statement saying that the pair will not be hitting the road together. “Despite initial reports based on formal discussions of the possible run, Enrique will continue on his solo tour in support of his new album Euphoria,” his reps said. “Enrique has great respect for Britney and is a longtime fan of her work. He is very sorry for the confusion this might have caused to anyone.” Britney had originally revealed the news as a “special announcement” from backstage at the morning show, stating that she’d join Iglesias on tour starting in June.
