'Hero' singer Enrique Iglesias says he wants to "die drunk"
Enrique Iglesias wants to "die drunk".
The 'Hero' singer consumed a considerable amount of alcohol when the plane he was travelling on was forced to make an emergency landing due to an engine malfunction last month.
He said: "I had a few shots of vodka and I was fine. Die drunk, right?
"I'm a bit of a panic flyer. I fly myself, but I definitely panicked for a few minutes."
The star - who has been dating tennis player Anna Kournikova for more than six years - claims he trained to become a pilot to get over his phobia of flying.
He said: "I do it to get over the fear. It's the feeling of not knowing what's going on. I can't even ride on the back of a motorcycle.
"I've got to be driving. I don't feel like I have to be in control of everything, just anything that's moving very fast."
Enrique's new single 'Away' is released on December 1.
