Ricky Martin Comes Out of the Closet and Says He’s Gay!


Not. Cue eye roll and fingers down my throat.

Ricky Martin Gay

After many, many years of speculation, Ricky Martin confirmed what we knew all along and finally came out of the closet today. Why? Because he’s got a book deal going on…. here’s an excerpt from his blog:

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.

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.

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. 

– Ricky Martin

Boo! Hiss! What a big fat fraud. He only came out because he wrote a memoir and he’s got a book to push. Seriously. Who would buy a Ricky Martin Memoir? I certainly won’t. Perhaps you should ask William Hung.

In my world, there’s a term for guys like that. GAY FOR PAY!

Call me when Anderson Cooper comes out of the closet to launch his dildo line. Thanks.


  1. Ricky who??!
    lol i dont even know who he is! xD..
    but yeh it does seem that hes only just said that just to get some attention to him & his memoir, i mean if u gonna say ur gay just say im gay not start of with
    ”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.” .. pshh ¬_¬

    Hahaha oh man, love how you can make me laugh out loud in my office cubicle.

  3. Reality Check

    Whatever. Ricky doesn’t need the money, fame or class. You do.

  4. We’re such huge fans of your blog!! As a start out blog ourselves we can only hope to be as relevant in fashion as you are one day!! :) please check us out! any feedback would be amazing! closetmashup.onsugar.com

  5. I remember Ricky Martin well and how many women and gay men drooled over him. I am not sure of his motivation for doing this,although it does seem somewhat questionable. However, i still think he was a good talent!

  6. Steven L. Kidder

    I LOVE IT!!!!!
    The fact that you were saying what is on everybody’s mind is HILARIOUS!!! We all know what he is doing this for and we also all knew that he was gay! Excuse me what else are we suppose to think when you have a surrogate mother have babies for you!!! Bhaha!!!
    AGAIN LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!

  7. It’s from drinking all the Birch Tree Kuya Germs gave him when he came to Manila as an impressionable young bhoy.

  8. I agree, such a cheapskate and this is more of an INSULT to the gay world if you ask me – he had no trouble keeping this a secret for years so some completely naive women still had a reason to be in love with him.

  9. The shock! The shock! I’m going to burn down my Ricky Martin shrine!!!

    Seriously. He’s talented and his music is, well, kinda catchy. It’s sad that he’s had to keep this facade for so long.

    And it’s sadder that’s the only reason he’s dropping it now is because of a book deal.

  10. great. the gay community should be proud of him and u should be ashamed for saying shits like gay for pay

  11. Gay for pay! Love it!

    I was also shocked by this out of the blue (and not at all obvious) SHOCK confession! Never would’ve guessed that in a million years. Next we’ll be hearing that George Michael and Elton John are gay!!! ;)

  12. Great! I am just wondering when he ever was in the closet? I remember this interview with a horrible American journo and he completely dodged the issue, indicating quite clearly at that time already that he was not straight. Who is next? George?
    I wonder like you: who is going to buy the memoirs of a 40-something? He does not seem to literate either.

  13. I didn’t know about the book coming out. And I’m from PR, the land of Ricky Martin, but now that I know I know the reason he came out. I do agree he had a secondary reason. But I am glad he came out. It had to happen sooner than later for his kids sake but more importantly for gays everywhere. If I where a gay man I would’ve been pissed at Ricky for keeping the lie for so long. Who the f^%$ cares where you want to stick your tongue, etc in. Give sexuality as a whole a break people. Watch it in your house hidden away from all you loved ones if your so embarrassed but don’t embarrass people by questioning or insulting their choices. We are what we are.
    Anyways If you want to see how people dress in the land of Ricky Martin check out my blog http://www.dress-diary.blogspot.com
    Subliminal messaging anyone? Hey, I’m from the land of Ricky Martin. LOL!!!!!!

  14. Hahaha you’re the best. I reacted in the exact same way, I mean – who didn’t?

  15. This is the part of you I miss the most BB.
    As a longtime fan,I don’t enjoy your restrained,pretend-vogue self who obsesses over Anna Wintour and high fashion.Nothing’s wrong with either of those,but there are a million other bloggers on the same thing.
    Whereas your nasty,hilarious side is truly one of a kind.Been checking your site less and less,I hope you go back to the real BB.


    Um everybody knew…but Brian get your fact right he dint have a book deal or anything , now they coming out with a lots of rumor that are false , Its very immature and unprofessional of you to assume rumors just like that,as a Homosexual I thought i was very brave what he did and for you to mock him is so below low , in my world we call that GAY INSENSITIVE.

  17. not everybody can be a big flame like you bryan, i respect your blog a lot cuz its usually funny and random but really? gays against gays? shit, as far as i am concerned he will bring solace to many guys in latin america and maybe the world who have to hate and hide who they are, kids who do not necessarily want to dress like woman or wear purses, but hey… to each their own

  18. i know is not a big deal because everyone knew he was GAY but you shall know that it is something really important here in latin america for us Gays only for the sole fact that he’s the first true mainstream star who has come out… there’s still hope for us :) im happy for him and wish him the best

  19. why didn’t he came out earlier but now after all those denying..

  20. Yeah, for serious. Basically, he’s probably about to have a new CD or other project out… that’s the only new thing coming out. When Lance Bass came out everyone was trying to remember who he was, now people care where he goes and what he does.

  21. Not everybody can scream out ‘I Love penis’ for the whole world to listen. He has always been reserved about his private life. I don’t care too much about the book deal but ricky martin is a great man. He has been working a lot on charity projects and that is something pure and more real than this whole thing.
