Ricky Martin is the King of the Parade

Ricky Martin was king for a day at the 50th annual Puerto Rican Day Parade in New York City on Sunday, June 10, 2007.

Pop star Ricky Martin, named king of the parade, joined NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg for a ceremonial ribbon cutting before ascending a float that promoted the Ricky Martin Foundation, which advocates for child welfare around the world.

    Do you see a favoritism here? Here is a guy who does a lot of good things for kids with the Ricky Martin Foundation, which advocates for child welfare around the world, who has donated millions of dollars to the needy, including victims of Katrina among many, yet when he serves as the king of the PR Day Parade he gets blasted. On the other hand, we have Angelina, who being the wacko that she is, or was, and doing good things also, gets praised by almost everyone on JJ. Do you think that is fair? He gets blasted for being gay, even if no one is sure of that. And Angelina gets praised, even when everybody knows about what she really is. Do you see what I mean when I talk about this being a worship site.

    No one said he doesn’t do good things. All that was said is that he loves the **** and should finally come clean. Yes, he’s philanthropic. He’s also a big girl and there’s nothing wrong with it. Embrace reality twokids2!!!

    Almost all celebrities have nowadays a foundation for some good purpose. It must be included in recording deals under marketing clausul or something. It gives a lot of good media coverage, and for Ricky mostly in Spanish language media. That’s also why big companies sponsor some good causes, it’s smart business.

    Some celebrities use this to promote themselves more blatantly, maybe because ther’
    s not much else to market.

    Why doesn’t he come out already? He’s not fooling anyone. Come on Ricky we all know you like men and it’s ok, really. I’m sick of all these closeted stars. *yawns*

    He should be King of the Gay Pride Parade.

    When will he come out?!?

    Jane Says:

    Isn’t it pathetic how every one wants Ricky to “come out” even though it’s only speculations, and no one has any proof that he is gay? The gay men want him to be gay because he is hot and a celebrity, which would give them a sense of pride that yet another star is just like them, and the straight men want him to be gay so their girlfriends/wives don’t lust after him. So sad…
    What’s the big obsession about his sexuality?? Whatever it may be he doesn’t owe any one any admissions or explanations. He doesn’t deserve the rude and disrespectful comments and speculations. And especially the gay people who know exactly how it feels should know better.

    Spreading your passive/aggressive tendencies along are you? Is it possible for you to praise anyone without putting down the Jolie Pitts? Maybe he’s not as interesting to JP fans. I have never liked his music, so why should I comment on him? Geesh get over it will you?

    Indie Says:

    twokids, are YOU realy any better? You are not happy with people bashing your beloved Ricky Martin. And just how do you think Angelina Jolie fans feel when you bash her?

    Its obviously a matter of opinion. Some people do not like Ricky Martin.

    Tons of people do a lot of stupid **** and have messed up pasts, the only difference is AJ is open about hers. How long are you going to bash her for something she did in the past? :roll:

    Favoritism? xD These are celebrities, NOT your children. Ofcourse there is favoritism. Sorry, I wasnt aware we are all supposed to like everyone equally. :roll: Thats not how it works. Its called a preference.. ^_^

    Worship site? For what? Angelina Jolie? Ok then. How many times does this need to be said? Jared posts quite a bit of pics and info on her and her family, so naturally her fans are going to come here. And while I admit that some people are a little over the top in their devotion towards them, nevertheless they are still good people. They are quite popular. Deal with it, or avoid the comments. Its that damn simple.

    As far as Martin goes, no I had no idea what charities he’s involved in, if any. And thats a good thing that he is willing to do this. But you could have handled it with a little more class, rather than bash another celebrity who tries to make a difference in our world.

    Is this the Puerto Rico Gay Pride Parade? Cuz…Ricky really needs to open the closet door and come the hell out…

    Ricky is the gayest of the Gays. Has he come out yet?

    K Says:

    Twokids–
    I don’t think anyone is blasting RMartin, besides his boyfriend, sorry had to, just stating that they think he is gay. I don’t think that they are even saying that in a bad way, I may be speaking for myself here and get it for saying so, but I believe that a majority of the people who comment on this site wouldn’t particularly see being gay as a horrific ************ type of thing. Feel free to yell at me you guys if you feel differently as I don’t want to put words in mouths. Therefore saying he is gay or comeout of the closet ect isn’t really bashing your beloved Ricky.

    2kids- Now I am convinced you are a paid hater poster. Maybe on a double payroll or is it time and a half. The more you are seen /read the more money. whoopee!!!!

    Am I putting down the Jolie-Pitts? No.
    I’m just saying that he is philantrophic but because many believe he might be gay, he is being attacked.
    I said, that he does as the Jolie-Pitts, but rather than being praised he gets basted. On the other hand, EVERYBODY knows Angelina’s background, but with her, that is not important.
    Did you hear me putting them down? No.
    Now, if saying the truth hurts, live with it. The same as many have to live with the rumors that Ricky is gay, even when there is no proof.
