Enrique Iglesias may have a "Situation" on his hands.

The sexy singer, who recently featured the entire Jersey Shore cast in his music video "I Like It," is a fan of the MTV show. So could a collaboration with reality star turned rapper Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino be next?

"I wouldn't mind it," Iglesias told us when asked about possibly working with Sorrentino, who recently released his own fist-pumping single, titled "The Situation." "I mean, a lot of it comes down to the song, but it would be fun!"

The Latin hottie, whose first bilingual album, Euphoria, is available at Target stores July 6, admitted that despite their onscreen antics, the self-proclaimed guidos and guidettes were actually quite professional.

"They were very easy to work with," says Iglesias. "You watch the show and you see all this drama and all these fights and you're like, 'Oh my God, all of this is going to be going on during the video!' It wasn't like that at all. Once I got to hang out with them, the guys were so nice and I'm actually a big fan now."

Iglesias has kept in touch with the cast, even sending a personal message to Sorrentino, who celebrated his 28th birthday yesterday in NYC. "I woke up yesterday and I actually texted him 'Happy Birthday,' " he told us.

Iglesias also opened up to us about his relationship with tennis star and girlfriend of almost nine years, Anna Kournikova. "I don't think walking down an aisle or legal documents is going to make a difference," he explained, adding that they don't plan on tying the knot anytime soon.

"I'm not against marriage, but I don't think it changes how you feel about someone."
