Enrique Iglesias, singer of the delicate love ballad "Hero" and distressed denim wearer, was recently the victim of a self-inflicted drone injury. During a concert in Tijuana, Mexico last night, Iglesias saw a drone flying overhead, reached for it, as one might reach for a juicy peach on a warm August day, and was almost instantly maimed as the drone's blades sliced open his unsuspecting palm.
Pop music's new enemy
"During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a point-of-view shot," a representative for Iglesias said in a statement. "Something went wrong and he had an accident."
It's true, something went very wrong. But Iglesias knew the show had to go on, and so he wrapped his palm up — but not before using his blood to draw a heart, or maybe a large intestine, on his t-shirt. Art begets art, babies grow up, and the world continues to spin, much like the seductively sharp blades of a quadcopter.
For now, we know one thing: pop music has a new enemy.
