You’ll be left salivating when you hear that the hitmaker ventured into the restaurant game. Iglesias joined forces with compatriots and sporting superstars Rafael Nadal, Pau Gasol, and Cristiano Ronaldo, on a delectable venture.
Their aim is to spread their love of Spanish cuisine by opening a chain of restaurants around the world. Tatel Miami offers high-class clientele breathtaking Spanish cuisine and an experience to remember. And this is just the start!
Being no stranger to performing at parties of the elite, the hitmaker flew to the Caribbean to sing at a New Year's Eve party organized by the sons of Muammar Gaddafi, the Libyan leader. This was after the star’s girlfriend Kournikova had connected with the sons during the Venice Film Festival.
It has been reported that Iglesias was paid an eye-watering six-figure stack to perform, but he didn’t socialize at the event and apparently didn’t even leave his VIP space.
The singer swapped out his baseball cap for a chef hat and an apron to play a part in a prank for the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Our jaws dropped when the actress, Amy Smart, stopped by for a bite to eat and the undercover megastar asked her if she’d ever go out with a guy who flipped burgers.
Smart and most of the diners later admitted that the fry cook looked familiar but had no idea it was actually the Latin music icon!
It’s no secret that this sexy Spaniard has received a barrage of music awards over his career. But he would go on to clinch not one, not two, but three Latin Grammy awards on the same night!
The megastar was awarded Best Urban Performance, Best Urban Song as well as the Song of The Year Award! That’s enough to make your head spin. His acceptance speech came in via satellite in which he expressed his thanks and appreciation.
Show in Madrid
After rising to fame and becoming one of the hottest acts in American music, he would return to his homeland of Spain to promote his ninth studio album. In 2012 he performed in Madrid for the first time in 12 years.
The last time he had performed in Spain was when he was on tour promoting his album "Enrique" back in 2000. His homecoming was welcomed by fans and critics alike and would win him the Billboard Touring Artist of The Year Award.
