Ricky Martin is out of the closet

Sorry ladies…


Is it still news if everybody already knows? Apparently. Former music superstar Ricky Martin (remember him? What about Menudo?) has come out of the closet. After years of sometimes coy denials, Martin posted a statement on his website yesterday. “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” Martin explains that his two adopted sons inspired him to go public. And there’s also the memoir he’s writing…”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,” writes Martin. Larry King is on line one.

  1. Golly….Thanks for this most newsworthy story. My great grandmother, who has been waiting for this incredible revelation with bated breath for many, many years now, will FINALLY be able to die in peace, after spending so much of her life wondering about Ricky's gay sex romps….GET A LIFE and report something worthwhile…Ricky who ?? You definately have me mistaken for someone who cares…Unreal

  2. Must be a really slow news day for all Canadian papers.I could have reported that years ago.This isn't news.And besides who really cares?

  3. It would be a bigger story if Paul Martin came out of the closet.
