Mr. Sean Paul, do people ever think you're Latino?

If you could date one Latina celeb, it would be?

What is the best Latin song you've ever heard?

"Shake Senora" by me and Pitbull.

Why do you love Latin culture

They love to party! And they give so much energy when I perform! I always enjoy doing shows for Latin people. It doesn't matter if it's in Panama, Costa Rica, Colombia, Venezuela, Honduras, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Peru, Chile...I've been to all of them and love the food too!

Who are your Latino friends in Hollywood?
