Iglesias plans naked ski if Spain win World Cup
28 June 2010 @ 13:49
"If Spain win, I'm going to get drunk and ski naked in Biscayne Bay," says Enrique Iglesias, who is obviously just as passionate about football as he is about music.
"That is what we used to do when we were kids," he explains.
At the time this interview was conducted with the Spanish star, England were playing the crucial game against Slovenia in the first round of the World Cup.
From the hotel room in central London, the screams coming from grown men in suits watching the match in a conference room next door can clearly be heard.
Every time it sounds like a goal has been played, Iglesias leaps out of his chair to find out what has happened.
Not the best time to interview someone who is football mad.
"If Spain didn't qualify to the next round it would be like writing one of the greatest songs of all time and no-one being able to hear it," he says.
It is only once the game is over and he knows the outcome (they got through in case you were not aware) that Iglesias settles down to talk about his new album - Euphoria - which is out on 5 July.
