I'm Happy For You, Ricky!!!

I was listening to the radio on the way back home from work when DJ announced, "Let's celebrate, Ricky Martin just came out!"
I'm sure many people had already speculated and (sorta) knew that he was gay, but when it's finally confirmed, I was a bit surprised. Yes, it wasn't like "Oh my goodness!!" - but "Oh, he finally did it" kinda way...
You can't deny the fact that many young women including myself found themselves daydreaming about him at least once and thought how gorgeous he was. Come on everybody, remember "Viva La Vida Loca"? He was definitely one of the heartthrobs. It's unfortunate that we still live in the world where people feel they can't be true to themselves. They are so afraid of being rejected by society.
My hairstylis is gay and he's SO proud of being who he is. Yes, he's not a Hollywood star, so the situation might be a little different, but still, he's happy and he's at peace. There is no secret. He's so free in many different ways and I know that's how it should be.
Years ago, my brother in law (my sister's husband) had the opportunity to to have a conversation with Ricky while Ricky was vacationing in Hawaii. My BIL said he couldn't believe how kind and gracious Ricky was - even when he was a mega star at the time, he was so humble and laid back. And I can totally believe that.

I hope Ricky finds happiness and what he's been looking for without any reservation. He's a free man now - he can breathe and be who he is without worrying about other people. He deserves that at least... Congrats Ricky - you did it!!!

Over from SITS...I didn't even hear that he came out. Not, like you say, it was a big revelation (next we'll be hearing that the sky! it's blue! lol). But good for him!!

As I wipe the drool from the keyboard, I just want to say, it every aspect of your life, be true to yourself, or it becomes an issue of your integrity.

Its unfortunate that so many would judge him for his sexuality vs his talent! Im happy for him and hope he finally can experience true happiness in his true self!

Hehehe, I remember having a HUUUUGE crush on him! But it was funny, because when La Vida Loca came out, I was still living in Australia, and in the line where he says "her skin's the color mocha", I laughed. The reason why is because in Australia, we pronounce mocha to sound like "mocka" (rhyming with "rock-a"). I had never heard it pronounced the American way before, so I thought Ricky had just made up that pronounciation to rhyme with loca, hahahahah.

I have to admit, I wasn't really shocked by this, but I'm glad he came out for himself and his kids. That's so important

He still makes me swoon - such a good looking man . . . I am so happy he is finding comfort for himself and is creating the right life for him and his babies. Good for him!

Girlies: I honestly feel excitment for him. He doesn't have to fool himself anymore - that's relief!!!

I'm happy that he felt he was finally able to
"come out!" I'm sure it was a big decision for him but what a relief, in the end. I've known he was guy since the beginning. Hey.. I grew up inHollywood, what I can say? I think people should do whatever makes them feel true to themselves and most comfortable.
Go Ricky!!
