    He's writing his memoirs

    Martin, 38, said he decided to reveal the truth after working on his memoirs helped him realize that he had to be free with himself, and not keep any more secrets...Martin's book is still a work in progress.

    First Sean Hayes. Now Ricky Martin.

    I think I was more shocked when I found out Tom Zakrajsek was married...to a woman!

    Same for me and thanks for that clip! Eleven years later and I still remember watching that moment .. I was talkig to my brother and I stopped mid-word almost after the first 5 seconds and how my jaw hit the floor watching the number mesmerized and when he was finished screamed "who the hell is THIS guy!!!!". I had never heard of him before that and I was out buying CD's the next day.

    I also thought "The Cup of Life," a.k.a. "La Copa de la Vida," was already quite popular internationally as it was the official song of the 1998 World Cup held in France.

    I remember my 5 year old son dancing around the living room singing "The Cup of Life" back then. Good times.

    Glad he's finally out.

    I know Ricky since when I was too young to understand he was on the other team and perved after him(wasn't too young to do that ) in 1995 singing and dancing to Un, dos, tres..."Maria"
    I think I have something going on with cross-eyed gay man, Tom ford being the other one

    It's interesting that most people here mentioned La Copa de la Vida and Livin' La Vida Loca. Those songs didn't have a prominent place in the Black & White Tour. The song that most people sang was Vuelve. I love his Spanish songs, but I'm not crazy about his English ones.

    "Vuelve" is an INCREDIBLE album! The one for which he won that first Grammy, IIRC. The title song is just gorgeous.

    Vuelve is my second favorite RM album. Almas del Silencio is my favorite.

    I'm almost as surprised as when I heard Clay Aiken was gay.

    Really??
    I don't think so, at least not in Argentina. If anything, I think that at least half of his fanbase will be trilled to know they actually have a chance to date him
    Honestly, like this surprised anyone , it only confirmed what everybody "knew" for decades in latinamerica, or in Argentina at least. a few years ago there where pictures of him taken at his Miami place in which he appeared alone with a very well known gay argentinian TV personality. Everybody just asumed...
    His fanbase here didn't shrink one bit because of that then, so I don't think it will now.

    I've never been a huge Ricky Martin fan, but this made him so much more attractive I love when people get closer to being authentic.

    Don't really know the guy, but I've been hearing about the rumors for quite a while.

    Yeah, I've been hearing about Anderson Cooper as well. Who's next?
