Not really the biggest surprise ever heard. But, Latin singing sensation Ricky Martin finally made it official and announced to the world that he's a happy gay man. Not many persons will be falling over from shock today. As reported on CNN Entertainment, Martin was quoted as saying that I'm a "fortunate homosexual man".
Martin has become one of the biggest names in Latin music since his debut with the boy band, Menudo. Martin has sold over 60 million albums world wide since he broke from the band and recorded as a solo act.
Twice PEOPLE Magazine has proclaimed Martin to be one of the "World's Most Beautiful People".
The Puerto Rican entertainer has remained very independent politically as well. He was a headline entertainer for the inaugural events of President Bush on one hand, but supported Hillary Clinton in her landslide win in the Puerto Rican primary over Barack Obama in 2008.
The Latin superstar continues to be one of the biggest names in recordings and entertainment since his crossover to English lyrics on some recordings.
