Enrique Iglesias teams with a porn star for his new video

EW.com tells you what this means for the heartthrob’s image

Enrique Iglesias, who once joked to a journalist that he was a virgin, takes a badass Kid Rock-like turn in his next video ”Sad Eyes,” which features the Latin pop hunk frolicking with 19 year old adult video star Cassidey. The clip, which will hit MTV and VH1 by the end of the month, follows Enrique’s obsession with the self described ”porn chick,” whose doleful mug he spots in magazines, on TV, and on his computer screen. His softcore stalking comes to an, um, climax when boy finally meets up with girl and they get nekkid in a see through bathtub. ”It’s a total makeout scene,” Cassidey tells EW.com. ”We look like we’re really gettin’ it on.”

Some industry observers think this steamy on camera fandango will give Enrique’s clean cut image a fresh edge, especially since he’s one of the first pop acts to go the ”porn star cameo” route. ”It’ll help him appeal to a demo that he hasn’t traditionally gotten before,” says Simon Glickman, senior editor at the music trade Hits. Teenage guys who’ve dismissed the 25 year old son of Julio as ”that pretty boy who all the chicks like” may now start thinking ”he’s the man.”

The clip, which is directed by zany fashion photographer David LaChappelle, will also increase Cassidey’s profile beyond the beaded off backroom of your neighborhood video hut. And while she doesn’t have plans to appear in any more music videos, she has very fond memories of the three day shoot, caressing Enrique’s ”buff, shiny chest” and listening to him joke ”maybe we should do this for real.”

During the taping, Cassidy even learned to like the tune — a cover of a Bruce Springsteen ballad — though she’s admittedly more of head-banging Slipknot fan. ”’Sad Eyes’ is one of those really catchy songs,” she explains. ”It was totally stuck in my head for the whole time I was working on the video. And now I even walk around the house naked singing the song.” Hmm… sounds like a scene for the uncensored director’s cut.
