Popstar Ricky Martin, who has long been at the centre of speculation about his sexuality, has made a revealing comment in a new interview.
The singer enigmatically told Spanish-language TV Aqui magazine that “his heart could belong to a woman or a man.”
Martin, who has been out of the limelight for quite some time, is the father of twin baby boys from a surrogate mother.
He has spoken out on the issue of closeted celebrities in the past. In June 2007, when Mexican pop singer Christian Chavez came out, Martin said: “Life is too short to live closed up, guarding what you say. [Christian] has to be free in many aspects. I wish him much strength.”
Back in 2005, Martin – who has refused to directly answer questions about his sexuality – told Barbara Walters, “I think that sexuality is something that each individual should deal with in their own way. And that’s all I have to say about that.”
