  • [~Famous~]

    seriously?

  • the_original_nika

    brad pitt? I don´t think so.
    well.. congrats to him, at least hes been longer in the biz and done something worthy in the music scene. Unlike some who don´t deserve *cough* jamie foxxx *cough*.

  • the_original_nika

    I was amazed when he got one lol.

  • DUI

    I forgot how cute he is!! He’s looking good, and with all the charity work he’s involved in you can tell he cares about others and wants to make a difference.

    PS-If ryan seacrest can get a star, anyone can!

  • Michelle

    He’s cute and has contributed to the music industry and toward humanitarian efforts, but, seriously, they give these stars away like hot cakes now. At this rate, all of L.A. will be covered with these on every sidewalk! Is it true that a check written to the right people really is all that is required to buy a star?? Who votes for these?? It should be the public.

  • LETICIA

    I can see that it doesn’t take much to get a star nowadays…..anybody can get one or BUY one….its lost its meaning…..doesn’t take much talent anymore…and Ricky….Ricky who?…all he’s made is “La Vida Loca”….he looks burned out with a swollen face….you’ve lost it baby…

  • Rose

    Ricky is meritorious!!! Congratulations!!!!
    :)

  • Arlene

    Some of you people seriously DISGUST ME.

    This man has done more for charity, than Brangelia or Bono.Not to mention he is an amazing entertainer
    So to say he doesn’t deserve this… is just ignorant.

    If i wanted to read ignorant things I would go to perezhilton or x17…

  • mariana

    yeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ricky is very handsome!!!!!!! great pics!!

    he’s a hardworking person!!

  • Anelise

    Yes! We’re happy!!!
    Ricky is great!!!

  • Jay

    Just proves that the Stars are paid for.

  • Brazilian represent

    Ricky es un hombre lleno de virtudes y grandes hechos.
    Para quien no sabe, es mejor primero leer para que no hable tonterias

  • vicki Pasadena, CA

    Gay, gay , gay!

  • mia

    I thought he was dead

  • seriously people

    whether he’s gay or not…who cares? does that have anything to do with getting the star????

    indeed, he’s a great entertainer, his music is great, very talented artist…more than what we can say of many Hollywood “idols” who are really worth nothing…and more important than anything else, he is just a beautiful person, he is really making a difference in many people’s lives…especially those who need it the most and cannot defend themselves

    HOW the hell this happen? Has he released something since ” Living La Vida LOCA?” He must of bought this STAR!

  • Jessica D.

    Contrary to some’s belief Ricky has maintained a successful music career since “Livin La Vida Loca”. His albums have been on the top of the Latin charts ever since. In addition, his work for victims of sex slavery, prostitution and trafficking is to be commended. Not a pretty subject, most celebrities wouldn’t touch it with a 10-ft pole. One of my good friends knows him well and he is as generous in person as he is in the public eye. I definitely think his 23-year spanning career and charity work merit a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. Way to go Ricky!

  • torogi

    OHH, so that was his star. I was wondering who the new cemented thingy-star was while walking by there last saturday.

    WOW, ricky martin.MHM..

  • Heba

    Go go go Ricky!
    Well deserved always
    at least Ricky is talented and a great preformer and humitarian
    not like other YUKKY dumb stars all they care about is their drugs and superfaciality.am I skinny? is my pet is pink? let’s have a stupid party and show our anorexia.
    stupid!
    come talk about him when you ur tickets will be soldout two times in the same country.
    Losers!

  • yoyo63

    lol..mmm..He is not that famous, why does he get a star. ????

  • Jim

    Whoever is tapping that ass is the luckiest SOB of all. Love u Ricky. Since I probably dont know about 2000 stars on that walk, I dont mind seeing ones that I like and know like Ricky. U dont need to win and Oscar or a grammy every year to receive a star. He deserves it.

  • rita

    oh my God!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! he’s very handsome there!! I went to his NY’s concert and it was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • cloe

    He deserves it!!!!!!!! Congratulations Ricky from France!!

  • http://sigepa.blogspot.com/ sigepa

    is he really a gay???

  • alizee

    why? He definitely doesn’t deserve it!!!!

  • Didi

    hes dances like a cockf*g, why give him a star?

  • neri

    OMG!!! QUE CHEVERE!! :-D

    YAY FOR RICKY!
    I’m so happy for him!

    Go on boy! represent us Boricuas!!! WOOT!! ;-D

    awww, i love him.

  • Scott

    Charity work does not warrant a star. Does anyone even care about these anymore? They hand out so many a year it’s no longer a big deal. Vince McMahon is said to be getting on next year! And George Harrison doesn’t even have one yet. None of this makes sense.

  • Lucre

    Congrats Ricky!! you deserve it!!!
    i’m so proud of you baby!!
    love ya!!!!!
    tus fans Argentinas te amamos y te apoyamos siempre!
    Sos un nuestro gran orgullo latinoamericano.
    Dios te bendiga siempre!!!

  • Natalie

    Haha well congrats to ricky!

  • Radka

    I regret i wasn’t there…and 100% agree with Heba:)))))he doesn’t care if some thinks he’s a gay or not…he just enjoy LIFE:))))

  • cat eyes

    Congrats Ricky!!! This star is well deserved. He doesn’t so much for people who need help and support. He is a very kind man.

  • ???

    I have only one question..WHY??

    Thanks girl, I was about to say something like that, I’ve seen him dancing and singing on TV since the MENUDOS, a young boyband he used to be part of.
    I’m not the biggest fan of his music, but the guy has grown a lot in terms of being a good human being, to me right now in this crazy world, it’s all that matters…

  • missalice

    ‘One hit album’-wonder gets a star? I thought it was given to achievements in the US, not in Asia, Europe or Latin America.

    His hit album sold 7 million in the US, second album 1.6 million and so on downhill, latest one a few hundred thousands. Being in top of the Latin charts doesn’t mean much when it comes to sales, platinum sales is like 200,000 copies. I think there is more deserving singers, really.

    His so called charity work seems to be the best career move he has done, it paid him well in publicity and media attention. Having a foundation isn’t anything special among celebs, almost all do some kind of charity, they just don’t brag about it.

  • kestin

    I am SOOOO happy for you! I LOVE YOU RICKY!!! and I’m a guy

  • dede

    darling he doesn’t brag about it, he hardly talks about it! he’s been once on Oprah and you hear about his work more on CNN or other news channels than in the magazines or papers.
    most celebrities either give money or turn up to a glitzy “charity event” once or twice. The guy actually goes to meetings at unicef and he travels to the poorest countries to see the harsh realities of children slavery himself, so shut up.
