Ricky Martin: Ocean Drive's Coverboy

Ricky Martin: Ocean Drive's Coverboy

Ricky Martin is looking hot hot hot as Ocean Drive Espanol‘s coverboy for the December 2006 issue! Ricky‘s last tattoo was done during one recent visit to Puerto Rico. It’s a series of symbols in Hebrew Aramaic, “The Lord’s Prayer” in spiral form. Here are some choice excerpts from the interview thanks to my sub-par translation skills:

  • On his morning rituals: “Clearly. Generally, I wake up early and I go to Starbucks. They know me there and they have the newspaper waiting for me, my coffee and my cinnamon roll. They are my family. Later, I go away to the gym and depending on how it is that day, I go study. I continue to practice capoeira (martial art of Brazil). I don’t go crazy training six hours daily like before anymore. I just go to the class.”
  • On following religion: I really like the Buddhist philosophy but that doesn’t mean that I am of the religion. If I subscribe to Buddhism, I can’t be of anything else. They limit to you in many aspects, and I am not going to follow those rules. I believe that everybody has the right to decide what makes him/her happy. I am not one to say what is better and which is worse in terms of faith. According to the teachings of Buddhism, the worst thing than you can do to your karma is to say to someone else that their faith is bad.
  • On his properties’ inspirations: My apartment in New York, creativity. Miami, peace. Puerto Rico is my home, it’s my people. I open the door in the mornings and say, “Ah, smells of Puerto Rico”. The one of Los Angeles, I’m selling and I’ve been offered money already. And I said, you have the key there. Congratulations, I will go and buy another one.

    Ricky, Ricky, Ricky…

    Don’t you know that you’re no longer important nor have you ever been important? He’s so full of sh*t with these ‘inspiration’ and philosophy crap. And to even stay on the radar, he’s gone and signed up for UN which I’m all for but not him because he’s doing it for all the wrong reasons.

    He can’t dance, can’t sing… guess maybe property investment is for him after all.

    Ricky Martin may not be important to you AL… But he is very popular in the Latin community and in many places around the world. Who are you??? Ha yes nobody… Ricky is sexy; Ricky is an excellent singer and a brilliant writer. More important of all he is a great human being who is helping many children around the world. He has a great foundation that is helping to stop the trafficking of children and abuse… Al you are full of hate. . Have a great day.

    Al, Ricky ain’t doing badly. He’s worth millions. Was voted one of the world’s “beautiful people” by People Magazine, won the equivalent of the Academy Award in Mexico and from his bio:
    “Ricky has created the “Ricky Martin Foundation” which gave a million dollars worth of musical instrument to Puerto Rican public schools. The Foundation is also deeply involved in helping children who are victim of child prostitution and/or pornography, especially in India but also all around the world. According to Ricky, “this is the biggest problem our society is going to face within the next 10 years”.

    Speaks 5 languages: Spanish, English, Portuguese, French & Italian.

    You go Ricky. Sure beats what we call celebrities in the USA.

    hey Ricki…the concept of ‘karma’ did not originate with Buddhism….it originated with St. Thomas Aquinas…do some real research, mi amigo. why all the worship of this man, he’s purely an entertainer for God’s sake.

    Jen Says:

    He was not worried about celebs accepting him, it was his family. Can’t use celebs to validate you.

    I guess some people need to get a life, I mean no disrespect and not to be hurtful but if Ricky Martin is gay who cares, thats his own damn business, if he is straight, gay, bi, confuse, or in the closet, who business is it. And for kiki, sorry about your brother, but thats just wrong of you to call a person a liar and talk about how you know their sexual orintation personally, when you probably never even met the man , I mean whats your so called proof , and Ricky Martin foundation have around , I believe for more than a decade, so how dare you!!!!!!!, Ricky Martin hae helped out in the latin community, why because you weren’t there so he does not, and by the way even Elton John was married to a woman and was in the closet as well, please all of you know about something for sure before you open your mouths, and for rob its the concept its the teachings of karma , that buddhism talks about and if he just an entertainer why your commenting on him!!!!!!!!.

    I know Ricky’s foundation supports UNICEF, and the CEO of UNICEF makes over $500,000.00 per year. So, when people donate money to the Ricky Martin Foundation, some of it is going into the pocket of the super rich UNICEF CEO. How much money does Ricky make as CEO of the Ricky Martin Foundation per year? Those stupid, silly, simple minded girls that handed Ricky Martin $47,000.00 just to have dinner with him, handed it to some rich men. How stupid can some women be? He must have been laughing at them!

    John Says:

    Maybe after those women paid ricky $47,000.00 to have dinner with him, he should have taken them home and given them the ‘golden shower’ just to say ‘thank you’. After all, he urinates on all his friends. This guy really has some deep seated problems. I don’t know what they are but he needs to get some help. You would think that with all of his money, he would have felt guilty for robbing these women of such a large amount of money that will take them forever to pay back. He was wrong in doing it! He can afford to fund his own organization.
