Ricky Martin Hits Billboard Latin Music Awards

Ricky Martin takes the stage at the 2010 Billboard Latin Music Awards at Coliseo de Puerto Rico José Miguel Agrelot on Thursday (April 29) in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The is one of the first public appearances the 38-year-old singing sensation has made since publicly revealing that he’s gay (he received a standing ovation when he walked on stage).

During the ceremony, Ricky denounced the recent passing of a new Arizona Immigration Law, which allows local and state law enforcement to use racial and ethnic cues to profile individuals.

“It makes no sense,” Ricky said. “”Long live love, long live peace.”

    This is a bad look for Puertoricans, heck the whole Latino community. In 300 years will any Latino be straight, what is with the Latin culture that makes men gay. Prob the women look like transvestites, who knows but it is a bad look.

    What are the immigration laws that are in Mexico? They are ten times worse than Arizona. Should we just open up the border and let all the illegal aliens in and just forget were a country of laws?

    @Lenny: No,
    but racism and discrimination shoudn’t be acceptable. That includes discrimination of gay people.

    @HAHAHA: You’re an IGNORANT BAS-TERD, don’t talk about the latin community like that standing for something so ignorant, nothing in the latin community make guys gay.

    Ricky is a ROLE MODEL, to all of gay kids out there showing that you can be successful, have a great career and BE GAY.

    A role model would have come forward at the height of his career, not when its non-existent. he did it to rekindle it. uncourageous. he has served no justice for the gay community at all.

    @HAHAHA:
    So be it. If there is something in my culture that lets people be who they really are instead of feeling suppress, then we are doing something right.
    I’m a straight Hispanic male, but if I was gay, I would not be afraid to said it. Perhaps if I was of any other background it’ll be harder to come out.

    Arizona is taking drastic measures to get Washington’s attention, they are tired of Mexican drug cartels having open war in their streets, they are dominating cities on the border inside the US. They are doing what they have to do and even though some may not like it, it, it is the Mexicans that are causing this trouble and somebody has to be brave enough to make a stand and 70% of the people of Arizona back this law

    melissa Says:

    Ricky really does look happy, I am so glad that he finally found the inner strength to be true to himself, I think his career will take off.

    What part of illegal don’t you little sheep get? They are coming over borders in the millions, taking our jobs, stealing, killing, destruction of property. are you all really so stupid you can’t tell the difference between people who are here legally and those who are just using our resources and killing people.

    Tara Says:

    @Citronex: I’m happy to hear that, but please don’t presume that you know how it feels to be gay or how it feels to be a second class citizen in the most democratic country in the world.

    Barack Obama Says:

    The recent legislation in Arizona threatens to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans.

    Ricky ROCKS!!! Says:

    Please remember that Ricky is a single father.
    No one was surprised with his coming out just because he was open about his kids in August 2008.

    melissa Says:

    Well then maybe Obama should do something about the border problem and stop telling Arizona not to.

  25. 25
    melissa Says:

    Fairness???? Is it fair that US citizens can’t walk down their street without the fear of gunfire by illegal drug cartels? Is it fair that innocent children are dying because of these illegals? Don’t talk about cherishing fairness, If you are not here legally, then get the hell out.
