This coincidence is just too weird. A bunch of us were up in Mammoth recently enjoying some of the finest skiing California has to offer. We were comparing our iPod playlists to see who had the best tunes to ski/snowboard to. We thought writer Alexa took the cake with Ricky Martin’s “Livin’ La Vida Loca” at the top of her list. No joke.

Then what do we hear on the news line today? Ricky Martin has confirmed the rumors that he is indeed a homosexual. On his website, his statement reads: “I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.” For years, fans have speculated as to whether or not he was gay, and although he is constantly surrounded by beautiful women, now we know the truth.

Ricky said that after his two boys were born (via a surrogate) and after he completed his memoirs, he realized he could no longer hide the truth. He said that he must be free with himself and not keep any more secrets.
