Ricky Martin Admits Being Gay
Global pop icon singer from Puerto Rico, Ricky Martin has came out of the closet and confirmed that he is gay. He wrote on his website, “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
Ricky Martin, now 38 years old, marks this day as “an amazing turning point in my life” which was initially triggered as he began to write his memoirs.
“From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time,” Martin wrote.
Rickey Martin now joins singers Sir Elton John, George Michael, Clay Aiken and Adam Lambert in a list of male singers who bravely came out of the closet. Now the question is, how will this affect his career.
