Ricky Martin Talks 'Evita' Role

Ricky Martin Talks 'Evita' Role

Ricky Martin and his son share a sweet moment in San Juan, Puerto Rico in this photo from V magazine‘s latest issue, featuring Justin Bieber on the cover.

Here’s what the 40-year-old entertainer (in Giorgio Armani) had to share with the mag:

On coming to New York to star in Evita: “Che is a really cool character and you can do so much with him. The director said, ‘I don’t want you to just be Che Guevara. Let’s take it to another level. One night you can be him, but the next night I want you to be the taxi driver, the next evening the bartender. Literally, be the voice of the people.’ So I won’t get bored, that’s for sure.”

On releasing his book, “Me”: “[I was] so happy to tell my story. And it was translated into nine languages. The first country that wanted it was Finland, and then it went into Portuguese, French, Italian, Spanish, English, Dutch, and German.”
