Why Did Enrique Iglesias Want Out Of Britney Spears’ Tour?

Written by Michael Lambarde on Mar. 30, 2011

As reported exclusively here on the website on late Saturday that there indications that Enrique Iglesias and Britney Spears were going to go on tour.. it came true for a while, at least. After Spears announced the news Monday morning on ABC’s Good Morning America, Iglesias apparently pulled out of the commitment, leaving us wondering why that was the case.

However, TMZ is reporting that Iglesias apparently didn’t want to be the person who simply opened the act for Britney Spears. After all, he has had two major hits in “Tonight” and “I Like It” over the span of the year, and considering the airplay he received, while Spears hasn’t received much over the last year, Iglesias feels that he shouldn’t be opening for Spears.

TMZ says that Iglesias’s ego couldn’t handle the fact that he was going to go on stage before Spears and essentially introduce Spears to the stage. Iglesias found out shortly before or after Spears announced the tour deal that he was going to be opening for her and wanted out of the act.
