Grown up and Gay

Straight ladies, gather around. It’s time to light another candle and mourn the loss of another swoon worthy celebrity. You know, because we all had a shot.

Ricky Martin certainly didn’t shock us today when publicizing his sexual orientation. Some will praise the 38 year old singer for his honesty while other, more conservative types will shake their heads and punch another hole in their ‘you’re going to hell’ card.

Whatever side your bread is buttered, the loaves will always vary. Instead of trying to stomach the banana nut bread when you know it’s not your taste, why not stick with the toasted sourdough you are comfortable with?

In a statement from the Associated Press today cleverly titled “Livin’ la vida open”, Nekesa Mumbi Moody quotes Ricky Martin as saying: “Allowing myself to be seduced by fear and insecurity became a self-fulfilling prophecy of sabotage. Today I take full responsibility for my decisions and my actions."

As a father and entertainer, Ricky Martin is setting a very good example for us all to live our most authentic life – upside, inside and out.
