Not that anyone actually believed Ricky Martin was straight, but all the final diehards who were hoping against hope that he may in fact just have been very much in touch with his feminine side, should all give up hope. It seems that his long time skin care specialist (having a long term skin care specialist should be the biggest clue) accidentally let it slip out that Ricky is gay, and to make things worse for Ricky, transcripts of the interview were shown on E!.
Ole Henriksen was being interviewed by a Danish newspaper when he made the revelation. Henriksen named the Latino singer as somebody he would like to have a romantic holiday with, if he were not dating his current boyfriend. Henriksen's answer was: "I'd go for Stig Tøfting [former Danish soccer player], but since he's straight, I'd say my client Ricky Martin."
Now, I'm sure that sometime this week, Ole will make a statement saying that he meant to say Ricky was also straight, but that he is hot for a straight guy. Also, since the interview was in Danish, but translated to English, someone will say that Ole was actually discussing giraffes, but when you translate that into English, it means Ricky Martin is gay. So, all in all it was just a language thing.
As you know I am against outing, which is why I don't do it. If Ricky denies it, then more power to him. It is his life and he can live it like he wants. Coming out might actually give his career a boost.
