Ricky Martin Opens Up About Being Gay in New Book

August 19, 2010 By:

Ricky Martin is coming out with a very personal memoir that will discuss the very personal details of his life.

According to USA Today, Martin will open up for the first time about his early childhood, his experiences as a member of the boy band Menudo, and coming to terms with his sexuality. Martin also talks about being a father and his work with children around the world.

Ricky says, “From the moment I wrote the first phrase, I was sure the book was the tool that was going to help me free myself from things I was carrying within me for a long time. Things that were too heavy for me to keep inside. Writing this account of my life, I got very close to my truth. And this is something worth celebrating.”

Both English- and Spanish-language editions, called Me and Yo respectively, will be published in hardcover on Nov. 2 from Celebra, a division of Penguin Group.

This is going to be an amazing read!
