Ricky Martin on Coming Out: 'I Couldn't Take It Anymore'

Ricky Martin drops by The Oprah Winfrey Show to chat about his new life as a dad in an episode airing Tuesday (November 2).

The 38-year-old Puerto Rican pop star also revealed why he decided to come out as a gay man.

“I couldn’t take it anymore, Oprah. I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful,” he says in a sneak peek.

“Before I decided to become a father,” he added, “I already accepted who I was and I was happy with who I was and when I was holding my children, I said, ‘OK, it’s time to tell the world.’”

Ricky will also be performing his new song, “The Best Thing About Me Is You,” with Joss Stone on the show tomorrow!

    they always con the world that they’re straight and then when the career dies out they come out *****/ Little bit of an honesty issue is going on. come out ***** and let people decide if they like you.

    Just irritates me that he decided to wait so long after lie after lie! People already knew and I think he’d be much more respected had he done it ages ago instead of lying! I mean he did not avoid the question, he flat out lied!!!

    P.S. his new song is boring and predictable!

    I couldn’t take the sight of him trying to pass as straight anymore. Seriously, Ricky Martin was so obviously gay that the surprise is in anyone who thought he was straight.

    I have always believed that Ricky is a very handsome man, and I never thought he was gay. But now that I know I still think it’s really cute. Just look at that picture!!!
