  1. I think this video is a few years old. I seem to remember seeing it before.

  2. I can seriously live without that.

  3. As far as I know, he’s a father to his own biological children that he had through surrogacy.

  4. @ Rob-N Live without it then, no one is asking you to watch it.

  5. So Ricky had a tour coming up. How convenient, the whole coming out publicity.

    Gaz I agree with him, we dont need a viedo to scream from the rooftops…sigh….

    If anyone is on facebook add me on denfromdublin at gmail dot com

  7. Wow Ricky you truly are an inspiration to the rest of us closets who should come out once our careers begin to stall. Bravo.

  8. This is just sooo cynical and him about to go out on tour. He doesnt deserve to sell any tickets.
    I wonder how much they paid to put this on Pink News. Sigh.
    There will be silly queens who will swoon over this, but i wont be pandering to this blatent cynicism.

  9. god you guys are so cynical. what the hell is wrong with this? all the negative commentators are probs ugly, old, poor, and have no future or freinds. so you take your crap life out on him. get a life. this guy has just come out. give him a break.

  10. Hahahaha! He really didn’t need to come out. He is a big star in much of the world, and not short of a bob or two. Do you really think the timing of his coming-out was a cynical manipulation? I don’t. He is taking a risk by doing this, a big risk and I hope he pulls it off….so to speak…

  11. PinkNews have had this story about a police investigation into possible corruption at the Glasgow LGBT centre since yesterday morning but they are not running it – why?


    Police quiz Purcell ally over drugs allegations
    Chris Watt
    15 Apr 2010
    Police have questioned one of Steven Purcell’s closest allies over claims of corruption and drug abuse at Glasgow City Council.
    Councillor Ruth Black, a personal friend of the disgraced former council leader, visited a police station to discuss allegations that she was unfairly given a £50,000 council contract because of her connection to Mr Purcell.
    Ms Black, 45, was also asked if she had a role in the supply of drugs in Mr Purcell’s circle after the former leader admitted to having taken cocaine in the past.
    In addition, she was asked about claims she herself had taken amphetamines. Ms Black denies any wrongdoing.
    SNP councillors last week accused Mr Purcell of cronyism over his decision to award a lucrative contract to run a gay and lesbian drop-in centre to Ms Black, ahead of a rival bid from the well-established organisation Glasgay.
    The Nationalists were acting on a tip-off which apparently included incriminating evidence about the council leader’s decision to give the contract to his Labour party colleague.
    Ms Black had run a previous incarnation of the drop-in centre, but quit in December 2007. The centre went bust at the end of last year with outstanding debts of more than £300,000.
    Ms Black was given the go-ahead to run the new centre, angering supporters of Glasgay, which has more than two decades’ experience of working in the city. Ms Black admitted that she went to London Road police station yesterday afternoon after officers contacted her on Tuesday.
    Drug allegations against Mr Purcell, she told The Herald, were “the whole raison d’être” of the meeting.
    “They asked if I was involved in taking them and passing them to other people as well,” Ms Black said. “Well, of course not.”
    She was also questioned over the allegations relating to her bid for the contract to run the drop-in centre, but dismissed the claims as “absolute rubbish”, adding: “I totally deny them.”
    The individuals who had tipped off the SNP, Ms Black claimed, were former staff members of the centre who held a grudge against her. She intends to take action against them, she said.
    “It did become clear to [the police] as I explained the background that it was two ex-employees who had a massive axe to grind,” said Ms Black.
    “That balanced things out, and it was clear it was a very malicious, nasty attempt to get revenge on me.” Ms Black described the on-the- record police interview as “possibly the most horrible experience I’ve ever had”.
    She added that she was “devastated” to be caught up in the situation.
    No charges have been brought, although Strathclyde Police indicated that they may need to speak to Ms Black again.
    A police spokeswoman last night confirmed that the interview had taken place voluntarily.
    Glasgow City Council said it would be “inappropriate” to comment.

  12. Good for him
    I’m happy he’s out
    Excellent fake tattoos

    @12 Probably because PinkNews is a privately owned website/news-source who decide their own editorial policy. They decide which stories to run with and when to run them. If that is not good enough, why not start your OWN website?

    In the meantime, lets please stick to commenting on the relevant articles instead of ´flaming´ comments that have nothing to do with the subject.

    That has always been considered as the worst of net etiquette.

  14. So when does Barbara Walters get a public apology then??

  15. BrazilBoysBlog 18 Apr 2010, 6:01am

    @15 “So when does Barbara Walters get a public apology then??”

    Public apology for what?

    This hag was not entitled to an answer anyway!

    The mans sexuality was his own business, nothing to do with some publicity seeking journo…

    When, I wonder will we get a public apology from HER for subjecting the world to her cr-p show for all these years?

    “Ricky Martin has celebrated coming out with a naked video.”


  17. good for him and he’s still sizzzzling hot

    Ricky Martin is forever engraved in the memories of the younger generations ans a cool, hot guy.

    As a talented performer and a celebrity known to have a tremendous amount of compassion for the poor, he has validated thousands of young gays who would otherwise have one less role model.

    Thank you, Ricky Martin, and welcome to this part of your journey.

  19. Celebrities gives gayness a bad name.

  20. Any versions without the shadow on the go?

  21. celebs don’t actually Jean

    This sounds like a world first laugh.
    People knew it did not before, you should seek medical advice :-)

    otherwise make contact with a hot 27 year old so there I am on msn

  23. Glad he finally came out.

  24. I really can’t understand the negativity. If anyone knows about the Hispanic community – it has a reputation for being macho and socially conservative. Its great that Ricky felt able to come out – its really not easy if you’re from a hostile community. He has always supported gay rights even when he was in the closet. Don’t be so bitter and negative!
