In a move that will surprise just about no one, Ricky Martin has finally admitted he is gay. He has now joined the ranks of people like Lance Bass and Clay Aiken who no one was surprised about when they came out of the closet. Here is the excerpt from his blog talking about his sexual lifestyle.
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.
What will happen from now on? It doesn’t matter. 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.
Martin will continue to be “Livin La Vida Loca” for a while longer it seems. Does it make me a bad person that I didn’t realize he WASN’T gay? Whoops….
