Ricky Martin Once Canceled a Concert to Go on a Date

So now every time a popstar cancels a concert for “exhaustion” or “hospitalization” can I assume they are just bailing to go on a date?! Grrrr, Adele...I knew that was going on!

Ricky Martin said he made his manager come up with some excuse for why he suddenly bailed on his concert when he really just wanted to go on an elaborate date.

“I cancelled a show once to be with someone that I loved,” Ricky told Details magazine.

Ricky has been with his partner Carlos Gonzalez Abella for four years and we can safely assume it was Carlos that he bailed on the show to be with.

“I had one day. I thought, ‘you live in another country, I live in another country. This is incredible and I feel amazing.’”

You know who doesn’t feel amazing? The hundreds to thousands of people who were waiting outside the concert venue hoping to Live La Vida Loca that night. I’m kidding, love is always more important than work!

“All You Need Is Love” – Ricky Martin, errr, John Lennon? One of those guys…

“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,” remembers Martin.

In related news, Ricky Martin is very sexy, yes? This is kind of universal fact, but Martin remembers a time when he could barely shake his hips.

“Being part of a boy band, you’d move your hips and girls would scream. I was only 12 – I was a child,” he remembers of his time in the band Menudo, “There was a guy that was 16. He would shake his hips better than me and he’d get more screams. It was like, ‘Oh sh-t, I’m sexy. But I’m not that sexy.’”
