Singer Ricky Martin has said he is ‘stronger than ever’ after coming out as gay earlier this week on his official website. As news spread that he had come out the star took to Twitter and thanked fans for their support.
Ricky Martin has enjoyed success across the world as a solo singer who is probably best known in the UK for his hit single Livin la Vida Loca. Aside from singing Martin has also dabbled in acting appearing in the 1990’s in ABC’s medical soap, General Hospital.
Earlier this week Latin pop singer Ricky Martin announced he was gay on his official website. His announcement came after years of dodging the question of his sexuality and much speculation within certain quarters of the press over it. However, on Monday that speculation ended when Martin posted a statement on his official website, in Spanish and English, confirming he was gay. Since then the news has unsurprisingly been widely reported across the world and the singer has taken to Twitter to thank his fans for support. On Twitter Ricky Martin said he was feeling “stronger than ever” and was “doing great”.
