This really is no surprise. Before Ricky Martin came out of the closet and coming to terms with his sexuality he believed that being gay was "evil."
Recently he said: "Being Ricky Martin back then and what I was feeling were not compatible. I was the sex symbol and needed to dance and I needed to make girls crazy and I couldn't say that I was gay. It was a struggle."
He then went on to say: "If you add to that whether you call it culture, religion, society but what I was feeling, according to what I had in my mind, was evil and I'm very lucky today that what I have in my mind is love and I am very happy."
For me, it's really strange cos while Ricky Martin might not have wanted to come out of the closet and let everyone know that he was gay, I think almost every gay man under the sun knew that he was infact a gay man! I get that he couldn't come out at the time cos he was seen as a sex symbol to many women and at the end of the day he was making a lot of companies a lot of money so it wasn't just a matter of screaming out to everyone: "I like cock!"
Hopefully now that he is out and proud he will be able to use his star power to help other men struggling with their sexuality and let them know that there is nothing "evil" about a little man-on-man love!
