    Well, I`m glad that he was able to come out of the closet, good for him. I feel for those other obvious, blatant homosexuals that will never be able to come out and must live a life of repressed sexual frustration and self-delusion. Like Glenn Beck.

    This is the single most shocking thing EVER. Like, totally out of nowhere.

    First Clay Aiken, now Ricky Martin?

    What way-too-heterosexual manly man will come out as gay next?!

    In all seriousness, good for him. It always makes me happy when people come out of the closet because it makes me sad when I think of all of the people who feel like they need to hide who they are.

    Coming out of the closet will give him the popularity boost that may only be surpassed by sudden death. (See: Heath Ledger, Patrick Swayze, etc...)

    ""A lot of people say that destroyed his career, and when I think back on it now, I feel it was an inappropriate question.""

    Yeah it is an inappropriate one. When asked by the media it`s being asked like your sexuality DEFINES who you are, when it doesn`t. Who you are defines who you are, not your likes, dislikes, fetishes, food tastes, opinions on politics or anything as trivial as those. What you do as a human defines you.

    Is being gay so rare it is worth being on the news, then posting the news on IAB? I mean seriously now... it is 2010.

    Maybe if it was someone like Hugh Hefner I would give a dam, but like some people here I don`t even know who this guy is...

    Evil eye: This is a big deal because we all knew he was gay, but he denied it for years.

    I think he chose to come out for the popularity boost. does he have a new tour coming up or something?

    either that or he really was the last one to figure this out.

    He never denied it, he only avoided talking about it. Different thing.

    But of course, he HAD to come out when his career`s already dead.

    Regardless, still hot. RAWR.

    Figures he comes out now that homosexuality is more commonplace, especially in the media. Where was he when they were bracing and trying to make it more acceptable? Damn coward in my opinion.

    It`s not all that surprising. And Starshimmer: Why would timing about coming out make him a coward? People come out when they`re ready to and comfortable saying so. I`m sure he wasn`t as shallow as that to "only come out when it was deemed okay or socially acceptable". Alot of gay people have fears about making such an announcement. Grow up. And grow up too, Bailey...perhaps thinking of his children made him come out b/c he realized he wanted to be completely honest with them, not b/c of some creepy pedophile-based reason. Ugh.

    On the other hand, with celebrities using ANYTHING nowadays to get PR and revive a dead career, who knows. In any case it would all be speculation on our part, b/c while everyone has a judgement or nasty comment to make about him, none of you know the man and what his intentions are or were. The few gay men I`ve met in my life and most gays in general are ALOT nicer to others than straight people are to one another. If that`s their lifestyle, fine. Leave them be, they`re not hurting anyone.

    Duffytoler, he had a pair of twins via a surrogate mother, i.e. it`s likely he didn`t have sex with a woman to get them kids.

    Clay Aiken did the same thing.

    If we see another gay dude coming out who had children using surrogacy, we maybe seeing a trend here.
