Let's just say that Enrique Iglesias is pretty much done with drones. 

It's been a little over a year since the Spanish singer suffered an accident with a flying drone at one of his concert in Tijuana, Mexico. Iglesias opened up during a recent interview with Univision's Primer Impacto and talked about how he's recovering.

We have to say, the 41-year-old star was a total professional and only stopped his concert for a moment to be treated by paramedics and then continued with his performance.

"To be honest with you, with all of the adrenaline I didn't feel it much," he said to the Univision host. "I was really surprised with the amount of blood I was losing."

At that very moment Iglesias' biggest concern was his fans. "I felt a bit of shame and embarrassment in front of my fans, especially with the crowd that was right in the very front," he said. "Every time I would move my hand, you could just see blood every where. And at that moment I didn't realize how bad it was because I couldn't feel pain. I felt pain after the surgery." 

Iglesias quickly put the blame on himself, "Really, what I did was a huge stupidity." 

After a long reconstruction surgery, the star hasn't fully recovered feeling on one of the injured fingers. "Honestly, I still can't feel anything on this finger," he said. "I still can't feel anything from the nail and below that." 

Lesson learned, Enrique—never try to catch a flying drone.
