The thing I love about having Hispanic friends is that whenever I question what Enrique Iglesias is saying, I just ask them to translate. “Duele el Corazon”. It roughly means his heart hurts and it's bringing our king of Latin pop back.
It's been two years, since Enrique last left us with his Sex and Love. His heartfelt album of unapologetic pop that ran between his two dual personalities of balladeer and throwaway pop. It was all syrupy and stupid and anyway I loved every second of it.
My love for Enrique Iglesias has been a middle school obsession. There was an unreasonable time when he was the love of my life, the way only a celebrity can be. I've since moved on, although I've yet to forgive Ryan Reynolds for marrying Blake Lively without asking my permission first.
Enrique is neither the best singer, nor the best song writer. But, he's fun, something that cannot be overlooked. He used to be an adult contemporary singer. I fell for him with “Hero” as did the world.
If we're being really honest, his nineties Spanish music is not my thing. Of all of his Spanish releases, Quizas is the only one I actually live and die for. “Pienso En Ti” breaks my heart, even though I have no idea what he's saying.
Thanks to Enrique I actually know a small snippet of Spanish. I took French in high school after all. It's impressive. I know that “No Me Digas Que No” is something along the lines of “don't tell me no”. It's not only one of my favorite jams, it's also the building block in my Spanish fluency.
Enrique is dad to me. He's kind of embarrassing. Who says “tonight I'm fucking you”? It's like dad, stoppppppp, but you also love it.
That's always been Enrique. He's a little predictable, he's a little too overly sentimental, but it's all apart of his charms. He's hot, but at his heart he's just a dork like the rest of us.
I'm also in love with his dog. He posts about him all the time and all I have to say is that I want to be loved as much as this man loves his dog. I also need Enrique to go ahead and marry that poor tennis player. Put a ring on it. This whole sexy bachelor thing is old. Give Anna Kournikova a good wedding. She's waited too long. Stop kissing your fans on stage. Dad it's time and I say this out of love.
