We sure have heard, and now seen a lot from Latin singer Ricky Martin. â€śMy Skin Talksâ€ť is a video that he did a few years ago to promote his Black & White Tour. Well now after his recent announcement of homosexuality, he is drawing attention to this racy video once again. See more about it below, including photos and the actual video.
In the two minute promo we see a lot of the singer who is nude. With a few artistic tattoos and some well placed shadowing it is what some are calling the closest thing to a Ricky Martin sex tape we will ever see. And he promoted it on Twitter, where over 800,000 followers viewed it!
After many years of questioning and speculation the world finally got a definitive answer about this â€śLivinâ€™ La Vida Locaâ€ť singerâ€™s sexual orientation. Last month on his website he stated:
“Today is my day, this is my time, and this is my moment. These years in silence and reflection made me stronger and reminded me that acceptance has to come from within and that this kind of truth gives me the power to conquer emotions I didn’t even know existed … I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am.”
From there he talked about going forward and being happy. He apparently waited until recently to formally announce his sexuality because for years people who he loved and respected him, advised him to keep it secret. But now heâ€™s taking it as his responsibility to share who he is.
And in the video by Ricky Martin, â€śMy Skin Talksâ€ť he shows us a lot of who he is as well. It is an interesting move from him as it depicts a vulnerable, yet confident man who is starting a whole new approach to life. I actually think it was very well done and creative, and an intriguing way to embrace his new lifestyle.
I know some of you will disagree and I would love to hear all of your comments below. Make sure to check out the Ricky Martin â€śMy Skin Talksâ€ť video here and see some more photos as well.
