Ricky Martin came out as “a fortunate homosexual man” yesterday on his personal website. Hurray and high fives! Ricky’s gayness has been an open secret since forever, and we’re psyched he finally opened the closet door and hopped on out. The father of two apparently decided to spill the sexuality beans after the process of writing his memoir brought him closer to his “truth.”
Writes Ricky, “These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed. What will happen from now on? It doesn’t matter. I can only focus on what’s happening to me in this moment. The word “happiness” takes on a new meaning for me as of today. It has been a very intense process. Every word that I write in this letter is born out of love, acceptance, detachment and real contentment. Writing this is a solid step towards my inner peace and vital part of my evolution.”
Now we feel compelled to speak our truth: we’d still bang Ricky Martin, regardless of his sexual orientation.
