Puerto Rican singer Ricky Martin, confirmed a longtime rumor that he is gay. He wrote in his personal website: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am”. With his swiveling hips and scintillating salsa moves, Martin has been an object of adoration by million of fans around the world, especially of the female gender.
The Latin pop singer records and performs mostly in Spanish, but has a huge crossover following in English thanks in large part to his 1999 smash hit “Livin’ La Vida Loca” and his chart-topping “She Bangs” the following year.
Martin, 38, told his fans that his decision to divulge his sexual orientation marks “an amazing turning point in my life” and it started a few months ago when he began the process of writing his memoirs.
