Ricky Martin Comes Out of the Closet at Last

Well, it’s about damn time. Latin singer Ricky Martin has come out of the closet at last and officially confirmed what most of the world pretty much already knew. Yep, Ricky Martin is gay. Or, as he puts it, a “fortunate homosexual man.”

Ricky Martin posted the not-news of his gayness on his official website on Monday and blasted a link to the news to fans via his Twitter account. “Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment,” Martin said. “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.

Martin ended his post by writing he is “proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” Well, yeah, it would suck to be an unfortunate homosexual man we guess.

If most of you out there hadn’t already guess Ricky Martin was gay by now, we wonder what dark rock you were hiding under. The fact that he went and had twin kids via a surrogate should have been the glaring gay clue.

“This is just what I need, especially now that I am the father of two beautiful boys that are so full of light and who, with their outlook, teach me new things every day. To keep living as I did up until today would be to indirectly diminish the glow that my kids where [sic] born with,” Martin wrote in his website blog post.

Looks like Ricky Martin is now “Livin’ La Vida Loca” out and shaking it for all the public to see now. Good luck with your now official proud gay self Ricky!
