Ricky Martin Finally Admits that He is Gay
“I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
That’s the statement released by popular singer Ricky Martin from his website. After many years of people speculating if he is gay or not, he finally went out of the closet.
Martin, born Jose Enrique Martin Morales, is a 38 year old singer from Puerto Rico who first shot to fame via the Latin boy band Menudo. He has sold more than 60 million albums and sang hit songs, most notable of which is Livin’ La Vida Loca which hit the number 1 spot in more than 20 countries.
The artist is a father to twin boys Matteo and Valentino who were born in 2008 and delivered via surrogacy.
Martin said that he felt relieved after the announcement. He has been dodging the question for many years. His advisers told him that admitting that fact years ago would hurt his career.
