(Radio.com) If 2014 taught us anything about drones, it's that flying robots and music don't always mix well. Last year Cali punk band Trash Talk made headlines when their bassist threw a beer at a drone, sending it spiraling down into the crowd. Luckily no one was hurt but it served as a reminder that using a drone to film a show can be more of a risk than worthwhile.

Unfortunately Enrique Iglesias didn't get the memo. Over the weekend, Iglesias played a drone-filmed gig in Tijuana, Mexico. All was going well until the pop star reached out to grab it in attempt to take a selfie of himself. Iglesias accidentally grabbed one of the blades instead of the drone's body and sliced his hand on stage. It was a bloody mess, as you can see by Iglesias' splattered t-shirt. Pic shows quite a bit of blood, but you can see it here.

Iglesias soldiered on though, after having his hand temporarily bandaged up mid-set. "During the show a drone is used to get crowd shots and some nights Enrique grabs the drone to give the audience a Point of View shot. Something went wrong and he had an accident," said Iglesias' representative in a statement. Read more here.
