Latin heartthrob Enrique Iglesias is this weeks Billboard Magazine cover boy, and no topic was off limits during the interview.
Opening up about his strained relationship with his father, Anna Kournikova, the recent death of his dog and his new album "Sex and Love," Iglesias sheds some light on the pressure he has to keep building a massive music empire.
"There's always some artists who don't need to fight, that get immediately played on Top 40 no matter whar -- you know you have a guaranteed Top 20 hit," he says. "I got to fight like it's my first record every time."
"The last 14 years, 15 years of my life have flown by. And that's the only way I can truly explain it. There's no reason why -- it's not his fault, and it's not my fault."
He also explains why he's turned down multimillion dollar deals to appear as a judge on American Idol, The Voice, and The X Factor:
"I cared more about going into the studio and writing songs. That's what makes me happier."
Billboard is out now.
