Latin Grammy Award-winner, Enrique Iglesias, has decided to part ways with the mole on his face, having it removed in an operation that lasted only five minutes, and was equally bloody and painless. The singer, who recently released his Spanish album 'Quizás' in 2002, shocked his fans early this year when he was photographed without the trademark mole. 

In a recent interview, Iglesias confessed that he actually had the mole surgically removed. In the interview, he explained the process, saying that: "All I saw was blood. I was freaking out - I thought he was going to pole out my eye." He was apparently surprised that some people failed to notice the mysterious disappearance, by continuing to say: "Some of my friends now look at me and they won't even notice."
