Enrique Iglesias owes his childhood nanny for his big break, quite literally - she loaned him $1,800 to record his first single.

The Spanish pop hunk was desperate for cash to launch his career and turned to the woman who had acted as his mom while his famous father Julio Iglesias was touring the world for help.

He recalls, "When it came time for me to do a demo, I was 16, 17 - I didn't have $1,800, so I asked her and she was nice enough to give it to me."

The "Hero" hitmaker reveals he has more than paid the nanny back for her generosity, adding, "She took care of me for the first 25 ye...

Axl Rose sparked an ongoing war-of-words with event boss Melvin Benn after he decided to shut the sound off when the band overran its curfew.

Elton John will perform as scheduled at an upcoming music festival in Morocco after organizers defied calls from the country's Islamic politicians to ban the openly-gay star from the event.

The Rocket Man found himself at the center of controversy on Friday when members of the Islamist Justice and Development Party called for the singer to be dropped from the Mawazine festival line-up - because of his sexuality.

The activists feel his appearance will "undermine the respect of privacy" and "breach certain values that the international Mawazine festival is based on".

Critics also feared Jo...
