Enrique Iglesias stopped by MTV’s Total Request Live on Thursday to talk about the Video Music Awards that had Jimmy Fallon doing an over-the-top impersonation of him, his upcoming Spanish album, his current tour, and his performance on Fox tonight to help kick off the new NFL season. A subject host Carson Daly was apparently too afraid to ask about was Anna Kournikova, whom Carson himself revealed Enrique was “playing grab ass” with at the VMAs. He did say Anna probably won’t be on anymore videos though with him. For a transcript of the appearance, read on.
