Whether you’re for or against same-sex marriage, you can’t escape the Supreme Court case rocking the United States right now (thanks, Beyonce’s Tumblr). We’re all for opinions, no matter what they are, so this week’s Face-Off is between Ricky Martin and Adam Lambert – two acts who put their music ahead of their sexuality while remaining…ahem, sexy! You tell us if “Livin’ La Vida Loca” or “If I Had You” makes you want to cheer for something this weekend while we go change our Facebook profiles.

Ricky Martin “Livin’ La Vida Loca” – Full disclosure I was about 13 when the former Menudo boy-bander’s crossover single topped the Billboard Hot 100, so I didn’t really understand half of the innuendos. But you’d have to be prepubescent or blind to not understand the hip shaking. I mean, who wouldn’t shake their bon bon to a soaking wet Enrique Morales? ¡Olé!
Adam Lambert “If I Had You” – Even without the guyliner, spikes, lasers or forest party (yes, please!) I’d still be all over this euro-pop track. The Divas host had me at “Mad World” on season eight of American Idol. And only Adam could make a top hat and glitter moss make you wish you were the park ranger who stumbled upon this party. Bonus points if you can spot Ke$ha. Word is the glitter queen couldn’t resist a good ol’ fashion laser party in the woods and made a cameo.
