Why did he wait so long to disclose?? Maybe he thought it would effect his fan base, and now his former fan base is older--so he really doesn't have a fan base--so he is aiming for a new crowd???? He is still handsome---why are most of the attractive men gay--UGH!!!!!!!!!!

Let him or anyone be who they are and get on with other things. The media in this country is pathetic. I would hate to depend on them for factual and useful coverage of events in a time of great need.
Yes because we all know that EVERY SINGLE American thinks the EXACT same way.
What in ignorant statement....nothing is further from the truth.

The jist of every single reply, just in case you didn't get it, is that this was no secret...HE's the one that made it a public spectacle...and NOBODY cares.

Go take your "cool" American distaste somewhere else. Because everybody knows it's the "in thing" to look down on Americans. Get original.

And there are any number who are married with children, who will go to their graves, and have gone to their graves, worrying about losing their fan base.

If only we knew of the extent of it........................................

I agree with what you said. It is not anyone's business what he does in his private life. Why is this such big news? So what Ricky Martin is gay not the end of the world. There are a ton of gay celebrities and plenty more non gay celebs in real life. I don't see why people like the media and perez hilton have to out people. Can you actually report on something newsworthy for once instead of celeb gossip.

Obviously you care about this or you wouldn't be responding. I don't see where he made a big spectacle out of himself. He was just doing his music, he had no big controversies. So what if he didn't come out right way or he dodged those questions about him being gay, no biggie. He didn't have to come out at all or tell the media anything. Lots of people never come out or they keep it a secret for years until their finally ready. It is none of our business what his sexual orientation is.

Ok..let's try this again..and please read the post I was quoting....ready now?

I cared about someone lumping all Americans into the same thought process....and when people do that...it's always in the negative....still with me so far?

And..he didn't need to say it...it was no secret..AND....nobody cared...he's still Ricky Martin.....HE'S the one that made it public....not those simple minded Americans.

So if you're going to quote me...please be correct in what I very plainly said. Don't twist my words to feed your own agenda.

If I am not mistaken he just did it as a blog post. No news conference, didn't go on Larry King or Oprah, etc..
