Iglesias 'Terrified' Of Gay Debut

Latin heart-throb ENRIQUE IGLESIAS was so terrified ahead of his first ever gay concert in London last month (Jun07), he was convinced the audience were going to boo him. Iglesias surprised his manager when he declared he would love to perform at the G.A.Y. night at the British capital's Astoria venue, but is glad the gamble paid off. He says, "It was my first time performing at a gay club. But I didn't know what to expect. You get nervous, you have this adrenaline, you're going to perform for 3,000 gay men - you don't know if they're going to be silent, if they're going to boo you. "I loved it. It's funny, the owner called my manager and said, 'We figured Enrique is probably going to say no....' And I said, 'Yeah. Are you kidding me?' "I know the gay audience is very loyal. The guy that I work with, produce all the records with, he's gay. The first person I called was him. I was like, 'Man, guess what we're doing.' He was like, 'We gotta do it. It's going to be great.' When I went on stage, they were singing so loud I couldn't hear myself. My ears were ringing for two days, I promise."
