Latin pop star Enrique Iglesias, playing his first concert in the Middle East on Sunday at the end of a month-long tour, says he's not picky when it comes to women.
"Qualities (I look for) in a woman? I like anything. That's how picky I am. She's gotta like movies, the beach, sleeping late. Physically, I don't really care ... Anything goes, baby!" the handsome 25-year-old said.
"Music helps... before, I couldn't pick up anything. It's sad when you think about it," the son of Spanish crooner Julio Iglesias told reporters, adding however that he had "no girlfriend right now.”
More than 5,000 tickets have been sold for the gig, which was tagged onto a European tour that wound up in Moscow.
"The talk of women falling all over me is all hype. There are not 300 women waiting for me when I get home. I just say hello to my dog (Grammy) and go to bed," said Enrique, who was born in Madrid but raised in Miami.
"When am I going to be a father? Hopefully tonight," he jested.
Iglesias declined to answer questions about his relationship with Julio but said: "My father and I are completely different musically... I don't really want to talk about my family because I do this every day."
The singer said he felt at home in Dubai with its large Filipino expat community as his mother was a Filipina – AFP.
