Singer Ricky Martin is writing his memoirs and finally coming clean about what everyone’s known for years- he’s gay. From his website: A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I […]
I’m so glad that he finally found it within himself to step into reality and be honest with himself and the world.
It’s about time! Now will he come clean with his REAL age? Um, he was in Menudo at the same time my sister’s friends dated guys from the band, which makes him 42 years old, not 39.
LOL. I was wondering who’d be the first to post on this here 😛
I’m just glad he’s finally accepted himself.
Curtis posted it just before me so I deleted my entry but then when I read his title, I thought “that ain’t going to make it to the front of the site,” so I reposted it.
Well at least he was a little more gracious to the gay community than Sean Hayes was.
I understand why some people are annoyed by celebs who take forever to finally come out. I feel that frustration too, because, I always thought, if they would just come out, they’d be visible to someone else who is struggling with it. However, I get tired of people demonizing them for choosing to do it on their own terms. None of us would have wanted to be outed or pushed out before we were ready– why should we expect that of someone in the public eye?
Sean Hayes’ coming out story read like he held a grudge, and maybe he does– but he did it, and it’s done. Ricky Martin’s coming out was much more gracious and eloquent. I was moved by what he wrote, and I think he did it right– with dignity and with bravery. I’m seeing that the overall response to his coming out is positive and supportive; but there are still those who can’t help but be nasty about it.
Just ask yourself: if the tables were turned, are you SURE you wouldn’t do the same thing?
I would have handled it like him. First make enough money and then come out.
Who is next? Maybe Enrique Iglesias?
I wouldn’t care how old he really was he is still sexy as hell and I would date him no matter what so kudos to you Ricky
