WENN talked to Westlife who revealed details of their ‘Beyond Westlife’ BBC special that looks at the band off stage. Bandmember Nicky Bryne warns, “There’s a lot of swearing and rude language in it, so make sure your mother’s not watching. You’ll see us swearing, drinking and staying up late. Don’t watch if you’re easily offended. It’s bound to surprise people, but that’s what we’re really like.” The show will be aired on the BBC on December 9, 2001.

MuchMusic talked to veteran rocker Rob Zombie about his thoughts on pop music and he took the chance to blast Enrique Iglesias’ latest video for ‘Hero’ saying, “I was talking about this the other day because we were watching MTV and they were showing Enrique Iglesias and I was like how the fu** can these kids sing along to this sh**? It’s like Michael Bolton, it’s like what my Mom listens to vacuum the floor. [Actually] My Mom doesn’t even listen to music that wimpy.”

I would have read it. Or if not read it, I would have had someone read it and write me a two-page summary.”

As we reported earlier, Enrique Iglesias was on Access Hollywood Friday where he revealed how panicked he was before his ‘Hero’ performance on the ‘America: Tribute to Heroes’ telethon. Enrique says, “I was not nervous. I was panicking. The funny thing, I was writing down the lyrics of the song. When I get nervous, my voice gives out and my memory completely blocks often and I can’t, you know — I forget the lyrics. I go nuts. I hate singing when I’m nervous.”
As for Jennifer Love Hewitt, Enrique admitted to some ‘tongue’ kissing with her in the ‘Hero’ video but stressed the two were not an item saying, “No. Just good friends. I always say that. We’re real good friends. I’m just happy that I know her. She’s a great person. You know? And — I mean — that’s it. You know, I don’t have, like, a steady girlfriend right now.”
Enrique Iglesias will be on Access Hollywood tonight to address rumors about him and Jennifer Love Hewitt. They quote Enrique on several radio spots I’ve heard this morning saying, “It’s not hard to kiss Jennifer Love Hewitt.” Check your local listings for tonight’s episode.
Enrique Iglesias was on with Carson Daly and Total Request Live Wednesday on MTV. Enrique talked about Escape saying, “You know what, I want my records to sound different, I don’t want this album to sound like the prior album. I want a much more aggressive album, a funner album. I think out of all the albums this is the one I enjoy listening to most.”
MuchMusic talked to Britney Spears in Toronto on Monday where she admitted to enjoying the end of her new video ‘Slave 4 U’ saying, “The very end scene in the video for ‘Slave’, where the guy licks my face, I didn’t know he was going to do that.

Britney at first didn’t want it in but later changed her mind. “This is the most sensual videos I’ve ever done and the build up for it (the lick) was tastefully done and I liked it.”
