Dang, remind us to go to an Enrique Iglesias concert sometime. That’s our response after seeing all these awkward photos of the “Hero” singer getting close with an audience member at his New Jersey concert this weekend. Enrique is just…straight up making out with her, isn’t he? We’ve never performed in front of a stadium full of fans, let alone made out with anyone on-stage (high school drama club notwithstanding), but from the looks of it, Iglesias has it down to a science. A horrible, uncomfortable science.
Enrique Iglesias’ face isn’t the only thing that’s barely changed in ten years….despite countless club anthems and sex-heavy videos, he’s stuck with one woman, girlfriend Anna Kournikova, for almost a decade! The pair were spotted in Miami Beach celebrating his 36th birthday yesterday, with Anna hiding a hot white bikini top under her matching white jacket. The singer kicks off another set of international dates later this month (what you thought he was just chilling after dropping off Britney Spears’ summer tour?), so it’s nice these two got some quality time together before he has to go pretend “Tonight” he’s loving someone else.

A lot can change in 15 years, but one thing sure hasn’t changed much…Enrique Iglesias‘ face! Ok, he did get his mole removed, but otherwise this dude is practically ageless. In honor of the singer’s recent chart comeback and 36th brithday, we’ve put together a little challenge for you. Each of the 16 photos below were taken in a different year: 2011, 2010, 2009, 2008, and so on to 1996…only we’ve jumbled the chronology. Do you think you can tell which photo comes from what year? Check out the gallery below and give it a shot—the answer key is after the jump.
It’s all in the details. While everyone was surprised to hear Enrique Iglesias bolted from Britney Spear’s tour hours after it was announced, it looks like the announcement itself was the problem. According to TMZ, Enrique was all for a co-headlining tour,Ã‚Â but after discussing the matter with folks associated with the tour, he realized he’d be the opening act in all but name—can you imagine her playing a shorter set before him? With Enrique’s music enjoying a major comeback in the US, playing second banana to Brit just wasn’t how he wanted to spend his summer.
While Britney is easily the bigger star with American audiences (Enrique failed score a Top 20 single between his current hits and 2002′s “Escape”) , Iglesias has been an international megastar for a long time, headlining stadium shows in multiple continents for years. Some wonder if it was the idea of following Britney that bothered him so much, but it’s hard to imagine who this guy would feel is worth playing support for.
This morning it was announced that Britney Spears would be touring North America this summer to support her Femme Fatale album, and she would be joined on the road by Enrique Iglesias. Britney has already performed a couple of free shows to create some buzz, but she probably didn’t anticipate even more buzz just hours later, when Iglesias dropped out of the tour. Seems weird that Iglesias bailed so abruptly, it’s not like these decisions are made overnight. We only hope Britney doesn’t hold it against him (heyoo).
Iglesias was slated to be a co-headliner on the tour, not just an opening act, and he has not yet provided a comment as to why he bailed. So now that Iglesias is out, who should replace him? Perhaps a solo Jonas? Someone new who also shuns pants, like Jessie J? Leave your suggestions in the comments!

“Attack, my chilly ones!!!” We have to say, Katy Perry made for quite an intense snow-person at KIIS FM’s annual Jingle Ball on Sunday. Like her song, the singer was both hot and cold in her Frosty get-up, forgoing the corn cob pipe and a button nose for some killer curves. We don’t know about you, but we think a snowman sergeant would have been a nice costume addition to her spot in VH1 Diva’s Salute The Troops.
Katy was just one of the many stars who performed at the holiday themed concert this year. The stage was jam-packed with some of the hottest hip-hop stars around, including Nelly, b.O.b, Taio Cruz, and so many more. Also joining in for some seasonal cheer was fellow Diva Haley Williams, Selena Gomez, Enrique Iglesias. Check out the gallery below to see who else caught the holiday spirit!

Time to man up, Enrique Iglesias. Get those pants down. This isn’t some bizarre fantasy we have about the singer…honest. He got himself into this because of a little bet he made. While chatting with BBC News around the World Cup, Iglesias promised, “If Spain win, I’m going to get drunk and ski naked in Biscayne Bay,” And not that we listened to anything else that came out of his mouth after, he added, “That is what we used to do when we were kids.” (Strange childhood).
So, guess what. Spain won. So it’s time to make good on what you said, guapo. Get to it….take those clothes off. Quitate la ropa! Apparently he’s not going to weasel out of this because his rep told Access Hollywood, “A bet is a bet!” Now all he needs to do is tell us when? The FABlife will regrettably, be closed that day. We’ll all be in Florida. With binoculars. We know you’ll understand!

Jennifer Love Hewitt, who has dated more than two dozen men, is writing a book about love and dating called The Day I Shot Cupid. We’re not sure whether her very active — unstable, some might say — romantic life makes her qualified to give dating advice. Or whether it should disqualify her. Of the book, she says:
“Throughout my career, there has always been so much written about my love life. Some true, but mostly made up. I thought it was time to share the real story of what I’ve learned navigating the dating waters. Hopefully, in addition to having a good laugh, women reading this will learn from some of my hard lessons.”
Hard lessons? What hard lessons? Could the gorgeous ghost whisperer be referring to dating the Johns (Cusack and Mayer) or Enrique Iglesias, all of whom are notorious male sluts playboys? Or maybe she’s talking about dating Shaggy. (You remember, he’s the one that released “It Wasn’t Me,” about how men should cheat and deny everything if caught. We’d have to guess that getting engaged to actor Ross McCall only to call the whole thing off would make the list of lessons learned.
Come to think of it, this book has the potential to be super juicey. Amazon.com, here we come! [Photo: Getty Images]
Enrique Iglesias and Savage Garden scored #1 hits almost a decade ago with “Bailamos” and “I Knew I Loved You.” Though their sales have dipped in the US, Iglesias and Garden singer Darren Hayes remain big stars overseas. Both singers were born on May 8th. Which one is older?
Playboy pop star Enrique Iglesias gave an audience member at the Jingle Bell Ball concert in London a Christmas present she will never forget. The heartthrob snatched 17-year-old Maria Carroll out of the audience, serenaded her with his hit “Hero,” kissed her hard on the lips, groped her breast heart and put his hand on her ass. Come on, Enrique! This wimpy display of affection isn’t nearly as entertaining as an Akon show. You should have given the girl your dick in a box. [Photo: WireImage]
