Ricky Martin Once Canceled A Concert For A Date
Ricky Martin publicly announced "I'm Gay!" in 2010, meaning he spent 39 years "in the closet" and in a new interview, he expresses admiration for anyone who comes out at an early age.
"You know, when I hear about a boy or girl that comes out when they're 15, I'm like, 'You're so lucky! Kudos.' I will give you a standing ovation," he says in the new issue of Details. "But there's nothing you can do about it. You have to go through yesterday to be who you are today."
Although that doesn't mean he was celibate throughout that time. "I canceled a show once to be with someone that I loved. I had one day. I thought, 'You live in another country. I live in another country. This is incredible and I feel amazing.' My manager came up with some excuse. It was the most expensive date I've ever been on. But hey, that was a very beautiful day."
