The 'I Like It' singer, who is in a long-term relationship with tennis star Anna Kournikova, said that he doesn't understand why having a "hit song" should make you popular with women.
Iglesias told Us Magazine: "I'm not a heartthrob. If you saw me in high school, you wouldn't say I'm a heartthrob. Having a hit song, the minute you're famous, you're a heartthrob. I know you don't believe me, but I honestly don't consider myself a heartthrob."
He also revealed that Kournikova sometimes helps him with his music by giving feedback, saying: "She listens, but it's hard for her to be impartial. I truly go by what I feel and then I talk it over with the record company.
"If I talk it over with the people closest to me, I know I'm going to make mistakes because it's difficult for her to be objective."
