Enrique Iglesias cuts hand on drone during concert, uses blood to make art

Drones can be your hero, baby

Joe Bonilla

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.
