Leave Ricky Martin Alone!

30 Mar

GLAAD president Jarrett Barrios released a statement about Martin’s letter:

“When someone like Ricky Martin comes out, hundreds of millions of people now have a cultural connection with an artist, a celebrity and, perhaps most importantly, a father who happens to be gay … His decision to model this kind of openness and honesty can lead to greater acceptance for countless gay people in (the) U.S., in Latin America and worldwide.”

YES guys, Today, Ricky Martin like kebaboom as one of the Top Trending Topics on Twitter after he came out with the Global Hit news (nah, i already thought this years back) …that he’s a GAY. Some of Trending Topics I LIKED:

@PerezHilton Ricky Martin has just come out of the closet as a proud gay man! Yes! Yes! Yes!
@kenarmstrong1 So… CERN have discovered Ricky Martin is gay… is that it?

jmille99 So Ricky Martin came out yesterday and made headlines….Welcome to 1999 folks.

@JNOTTY Ricky Martin is the Lance Bass of “Menudo.” How did no one see that coming? I had him pegged from day one.

@petermmarino too bad Ricky Martin is gay. He would have made a great soldier.

@IshaSG First George Micheal..Now Ricky Martin..Gals r missing on opportunites 🙂

@sinemsenol I knew Ricky Martin is a gay for 10 years. It was obvious.

@schfu @Ladydeck60: Still proud 2 say I’m Ricky Martin fan! Takes courage 2 admit u r gay – even if it’s not a huge surprise. Esp. 4 a latino. …

||| My Top 3 Favoritoz TT about Ricky’s:

1: @knitterbird: A friend’s response to Ricky Martin’s unsurprising news ‘no-one straight can dance like that!’.

2: @Alkupra I knows Ricky Martin is gay since the first time I saw him bang his hips…no straight guys could moving hips like that.

3: @rebelle505 Ricky martin..i still love you. I remember the days when i used to shake my bons bons to your ‘shake your bon-bon’ song. Oh good old times

and yeah, my Tweet of course:

@realandychester Ricky Martin for finally finding the peace of mind to confront his fears. Now that he is being honest, I like him more than ever.

ENGLISH VERSION of his statement (from his website)

A few months ago I decided to write my memoirs, a project I knew was going to bring me closer to an amazing turning point in my life. From the moment I wrote the first phrase I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.

For many years, there has been only one place where I am in touch with my emotions fearlessly and that’s the stage. Being on stage fills my soul in many ways, almost completely. It’s my vice. The music, the lights and the roar of the audience are elements that make me feel capable of anything. This rush of adrenaline is incredibly addictive. I don’t ever want to stop feeling these emotions. But it is serenity that brings me to where I’m at right now. An amazing emotional place of comprehension, reflection and enlightenment. At this moment I’m feeling the same freedom I usually feel only on stage, without a doubt, I need to share.

Many people told me: “Ricky it’s not important”, “it’s not worth it”, “all the years you’ve worked and everything you’ve built will collapse”, “many people in the world are not ready to accept your truth, your reality, your nature”. Because all this advice came from people who I love dearly, I decided to move on with my life not sharing with the world my entire truth. Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions.

If someone asked me today, “Ricky, what are you afraid of?” I would answer “the blood that runs through the streets of countries at war…child slavery, terrorism…the cynicism of some people in positions of power, the misinterpretation of faith.” But fear of my truth? Not at all! On the contrary, It fills me with strength and courage. 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 born with. Enough is enough. This has to change. This was not supposed to happen 5 or 10 years ago, it is supposed to happen now. Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment.

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.

P/s: I Wish RM will always be at his best for the rest of his life (Love his kids) =) Nah, all of us realized that Love can conquer all and, Nobody Wants To Be Lonely…………

    While I can understand while many celebrities keep themselves quiet about their status. It is always great when people like Ricky Come out to the public. The more this happens, the more we can start making changes in thinking in our society! I am proud of Ricky!
