Ricky Martin Comes Out of the Closet

Pop star and one of the most popular Latin singers in today’s day and age, Ricky Martin, admitted on his blog today that he is gay by writing:

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. I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.

Although for years there have been insistent rumors that Ricky Martin is gay, these were always dismissed for lack of proof, so this confession comes as a real shocker, mainly after he became the father of twins about a year ago.
