by Ricky Martin...
Latin pop singer Ricky Martin came out on his Twitter page, confirming what many had believed for years.
The Puerto Rican star wrote: "I am proud to say that I am a fortunate homosexual man. I am very blessed to be who I am."
Martin, 38, said his coming out marked "an amazing turning point in my life".
The decision was made a few months ago when he began writing his memoirs, he said.
"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," Martin wrote on his website.
He said the secret had become "too heavy for me to keep inside" and his sexuality was "something worth celebrating."
