Ricky Martin on VH1's 'Behind the Music': On hiding his sexuality during his rise to success -- EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW VIDEO

Latin heartthrob Ricky Martin sold more than 60 million albums during his run at the top of the charts in the late 1990s and early 2000s, with hits such as “Living La Vida Loca,” “She Bangs,” and “La Copa de la Vida.”

Through it all, though, he was hiding a big secret about his sexuality that didn’t come out until much later.

Martin has done VH1’s Behind the Music once before, but he returns for a second round to discuss his amazing success and, yes, the latest beat in his career and life — his coming out as a gay man — in an episode, Behind the Music: Ricky Martin, that airs on the cable network this Sunday, Aug. 14, at 10 p.m. EW has the exclusive preview clip from the hour-long episode.

“I was trying to believe so hard from the bottom of my heart that I was not gay because what I was presenting on stage was not that,” Martin candidly says in the clip, which you can find below. “So it was very confusing.” He goes on to discuss his relationships with men — and women! — while he was a rising star in the ’90s.

EW has the exclusive first look at the episode here:

Adam Lambert on VH1's 'Behind the Music': His struggle with his sexuality -- EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW VIDEO

Enrique Iglesias on 'Behind the Music': His meteoric rise to stardom -- EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW VIDEO

Only a handful of stars have rocketed to fame as quickly as Latin singer Enrique Iglesias did when he cracked the global pop market in 1999.

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.

Mumford & Sons covers The National's 'England' on 'VH1 Unplugged' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Mumford & Sons doing The National? Yes, please.

The buzzy English folk rockers are the latest to take the plunge on VH1’s recently rebooted Unplugged series, and EW has the exclusive video of their cover of stately Brooklyn-based indie outfit The National‘s song “England.”

It turns out that the Mumford boys have admired The National for a long time. “We’re big fans,” says Mumford & Sons vocalist Marcus Mumford just before performing “England” in the video, embedded below.

“Last summer,” he continues, “we got to see them, like, five or six times, and really loved High Violet as an album and that song ['England] obviously sticks out for us cause we’re English. Still trying to figure out if it’s offensive towards English people, but yeah, we’re making it non-offensive. We’re making it sort of like a real Britannia song today.”

“When we were asked to play a cover, it just sort of jumped out. As opposed,” he jokes, “to playing Ween’s version of ‘Waving my D— in the Wind,’ which we thought we’d save for another time.” Watch it here:
