Ricky Martin, You Fortunate and Happy Homosexual, You

Ricky-martin1 There was a time when Ricky Martin's sexuality was the usual stew of innuendo and hushed rumours.  He would be all coy and hintful during interviews, practically daring us to say "Come off it and be out of the closet already!"  Plus he was just so fit and tanned.  But the Era of Wondering Whether Ricky Martin Is Gay has come to a close, because he just outed himself on his blog.

As a gay man, just in case you haven't figured it out yet.

Take a look at this clip from The View, in which Barbara Walters grills Martin (with a BIG OLD SPATULA, hahahahhhaaaaa never mind) in 2000 about his sexual identity. You have to sit through a minute of Boy George's disquieting British teeth and Ellen Degeneres' pomposity, but it's instructive to see how carefully Martin skirts around the issue when Walters brings up the topic.  Also, how white his T-shirt is.  That guy must have an unlimited supply of spotless white T-shirts.

Some may shrug their shoulders and make other gestures intended to communicate So What? But I think Martin absolutely nails the importance of living openly Default_2edb.matt-damon____when he says "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".  And that's what it's about: being able to live honestly and responsibly.

On an unrelated topic, take a look at this photo of Matt Damon.  He's like the living embodiment of Tiger Beat here. "Oh hai, you caught me with my cuffs undone. How clumsy of me!"

Good for him. I hope he is very happy.

Bunny

He's been out for a long time now. There were pictures of him and his fine-a$$ boyfriend on the beach like 10 years ago...

So, why did he blog it TODAY? Its been out for "ever" by Hollywood standards. Me thinks someone was wanting some headlines? LOL!!!!

Trish

And the world yawns a collective "duh"

In other news, the sun announced that it rises in the morning and sets at night.

And the world now turns a "Meh, who cares already?" eye toward Barry Manilow.
