I just have to say... Enrique Iglesias' "Tired of Being Sorry" is a great song!  
I haven't heard of him before, but I LOVE this guy's new music video, "Tired of Being Sorry"! I highly recommend it, and you can watch it here (real version) or here (ANTM version). =D

It's really too bad that the rest of the album this is from isn't any good (my opinion), but I really hope that he makes more music like this one! ^-^ (There are even vampires!)</plug>

(But, uh... on America's Next Top Model they were talking about how 'hot' he is.. and I just don't see it. He looks completely average. Am I the only one who thinks so? I can't be.. he really isn't all that good-looking at all!)

Yeah! I love his new music video too! :D

After he lasered off that mole... >_> While, not to say that he was attractive before, but he was, at least, distinctive. ^_^;

I don't really think he's a hottie but I do think he's adorable (his face mostly).

Meh. He's cute, but I'd bang some of those models before I'd jump between the sheets with him.

If you're into neat vampires, try Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse vampire series. Some of the books are a miss, but overall Harris is a fantastic, witty writer. I think the first one is called "Dead until Dark."

They're turning it into an HBO series called "True Blood."

I like vampires, but I'm more into good/I don't drink from humans ones. =D If they're the gothic tortured kind, they're not really my thing so much. What is the series about?
cryduchatcryduchat on November 12th, 2007 01:47 pm (UTC)
The series focuses on Sookie Stackhouse, a quirky telepathic bar maid. She falls in love with a vampire named Bill and gets sucked into the vampire world.

Actually, it's funny you said that. The series is VERY romantic, with dark humor. Not gothic at all. More like ... mystery thriller, romance.
Sana-chan: Just like kindergartensana_chan on November 9th, 2007 03:27 pm (UTC)
Totally average lol. It was so funny when they were saying how great the singer was, multi-platinum, etc etc so I was expecting someone amazing and then Enrique comes out lol. The video was cool though!
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 9th, 2007 10:11 pm (UTC)
He's not? Oh, I totally believed them when they said he was multi-platinum and huge, because I have no idea what's going on with American music these days. XD!! Even though I'd only heard his name in passing a few times here and there, I thought hey, maybe he was big now or something. XD

I'm really amused that I can't find the models in the actual video! They cut them all out, lolol!
Vickytoldtojoinlj on November 9th, 2007 07:02 pm (UTC)
I watched enough of it on ANTM, even if I didn't see the whole thing.
xD;;

I would also say that Enrique is average, but I think it's his "ethnic-appeal" mixed with his fame that makes some women automatically find him attractive.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 9th, 2007 10:12 pm (UTC)
What is his "fame" exactly? I had no idea he was famous or anything like that.. Isn't the famous one his brother or something like that? I swear I remember someone famous with the same last name..
Vickytoldtojoinlj on November 9th, 2007 11:23 pm (UTC)
He's the son of a famous Spanish singer, Julio Iglesias.
I have no idea when he started his singing career, but being Julio's son probably boosted him. He also used to be involved with tennis star Anna Kournikova.. or is still involved.. I don't remember. :P
He also used to have a trademark mole on his face which he had surgically removed a few years ago.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 9th, 2007 11:32 pm (UTC)
Ahhh, that's where I've heard this name before! I definitely know Julio Iglesias, and now that I think of it, I don't think I've ever heard of Enrique before. It was just the last name that sounded so familiar! LOL Of course it's his father's fame that led him here-- I'm sure without his father being famous, he would have never had a chance. It's funny that he removed his mole, LOL. Or that he waited so long to do it.
Vickytoldtojoinlj on November 9th, 2007 11:41 pm (UTC)
About his mole, I think it's funny that he removed it a year after Jimmy Fallon did a spoof on him on MTV's Video Music Awards for the song "Hero". Fallon was spoofing a few videos and had to quickly put certain clothing on for each skit. With Enrique, he plopped a HUGE fake mole on his face and even pressed too hard to make it stick. So it was this slightly flattened brown thing on his cheek. xD They shot Enrique's expression during, and he was not pleased at all.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 10th, 2007 12:27 am (UTC)
LOL!! Oh, the pains of being a staaaaaar XDXD
exathent on November 9th, 2007 09:05 pm (UTC)
that is the video from ANTM the actual video doesn't have the girls in it at all http://youtube.com/watch?v=X86S5oZzzh4 I was quite angry when I watched it
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 9th, 2007 10:15 pm (UTC)
LOL You're right, this isn't the real version! I had already watched it somewhere else, so I just assumed that this was the same one and didn't watch it when I linked to it. XD I actually find it funny that they didn't use the girls. It's like shattering their dreams, seriously. I would have raced and told all of my friends that I was in a famous music video, and then when I wasn't it would break my heart! ^_^;

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 9th, 2007 11:23 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but alternate still isn't the real thing.. I would be really disappointed if I was them!
Vickytoldtojoinlj on November 10th, 2007 12:01 am (UTC)
Well, maybe they'll play the ANTM one from now on? It's possible that they put out the first one for the time being until that episode finally aired.

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 10th, 2007 12:34 am (UTC)
You mean the song isn't new? I thought that it was a new song, and therefore a new video. Or just an album song that was being made a single now and got a video.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 10th, 2007 12:29 am (UTC)
That's true.. Hmmm, I wonder! In that case, the girls in the other video might be dissappointed. XD Can't please everyone I guess!
exathent on November 10th, 2007 12:36 pm (UTC)
I would be heartbroken too...also I don't find him hot either...I think he's kinda creepy looking^^
mizukiayamizukiaya on November 10th, 2007 12:17 am (UTC)
Eh, you didn't like this album? I actually liked it. Especially The Ping Pong song. It was actually one of his few songs where I liked the English version just as much as the Spanish version.

Yeah, Enrique is famous because of his famous father. Tho, his brother has also tried to get into the business. And Enrique's not only Spanish, but he's got some Filipino blood, too. Thanks to his Filipina mother.

I don't know if you remember when we had this sudden Latin boom in the US. Suddenly artists like Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony, etc started appearing. At that time, it was like Ricky vs. Enrique and that was the period when he became most famous. I'm surprised you've never heard "Bailamos" or "Hero" before.

Anyhow, I mostly prefer Enrique's Spanish albums. They are awesome. The lyrics are so beautiful and meaningful that it's no wonder why girls swoon over them.:p Alot of them have been used as theme songs for telenovelas, too. I recommend his self-titled Spanish album 'Enrique Iglesias' and his 'Cosas del Amor' album. Very excellent! As for individ. songs, I like Experiencia Religiosa, Nunca te Olvidare, Cosas del Amor, Esperanza, to name a few.

As for his looks, yeah I wouldn't say he's my type at all.
But, I'll admit in the Ping Pong Song MV he looked pretty cool. Maybe people like his Latin appeal or Spanish accent. And I guess his body is ok, too.
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on November 10th, 2007 12:33 am (UTC)
I'll have to listen to it again, but it seemed like mostly ballads and I don't usually like ballads. I prefer poppy/upbeat music, or at least something with a fast beat to it.

I know Bailamos and Hero, but I didn't know that he sang them! XD;; It figures. I'm really bad at paying attention to artist names, unless I like a lot of their music at one time. But one song here and there, often I forget (though I remember girls better than guys, go figure XP) I'll try out his other albums and see if I like them better. ^^ I really do like spanish music, especially Shakira-style latin pop. =D

I remember the latin boom. =D But I thought that was all his dad and Ricky Martin. I've always been pretty bad about keeping up with music, lol.

Youtube is dead for me right now, but I like Enrique (after Ricky Martin), LOL. Yes, he looks completely average, but that voice... OMG. If that's what I'm going to hear everyday, I have no problem with that. Looks can fade at some point, but voices they rarely goes away (except when you catch a cold/flu)
Chibi: WTH?eiji_torishishi on November 10th, 2007 03:13 am (UTC)
Hi!!!!!

Don't worry~! you're not the only who thinks he's not all that good-looking at all!!!. I like some songs and nothing else~

I like when he sings in Spanish (maybe is cuz I'm Argentine xD) and when he sings in English it doesn't meaning the same.
gynnephurblushingblood on November 12th, 2007 01:56 am (UTC)
I thought that song sounded familiar when I saw it on ANTM. It's originally by a band called Ringside. Check it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pG6qF_abO3o
Maybe their album's better than Mr. Iglesias'.
