Ricky Martin wants to come out again

Dec 12 2012, 5:28am CST | by

Ricky Martin wishes he could come out again.

The 40-year-old singer - who announced he was homosexual in 2010 after years of speculation - says he was always worried about revealing his sexuality, but once he did, it was the best thing ever because he was being his true self.

Speaking at a U.N. conference on homophobia, he said he wishes he could come out again so he could tell people struggling with their identities that "it's just beautiful - you find love".

He added: "For many years, I lived in fear ... because I was hating myself because I grew up listening to a very crooked concept: 'You're gay. You belong in hell.' "

Ricky said it was a fantastic experience to be at the United Nations, surrounded by people "fighting for one cause - equality and love and social justice".

Ricky - who has four-year-old twin sons, Matteo and Valentino, who were born via a surrogate - is in a relationship with Carlos González Abella but admits he has "fallen in love" with women in the past and doesn't regret any of his experiences.

He said : "I've slept with women and I've fallen in love with them and I've felt wonderful things. There was love, passion. I don't regret anything, any of the relationships I've lived, they taught me a lot, both men and women equally."

Latin pop often gets a bad name — for being too schmaltzy, for being heavily commercial, for being overly produced. There can be truth to those critiques, but they can also feel like poorly veiled cultural elitism. If you listen to Alt.Latino regularly, you know that I'm a big fan of pop music. It's the area where co-host Felix Contreras and I differ most often. I think it's in part because I came into music as a ...
