Today my Twitter timeline (I love them for saving my from watching the news) informed me that always Latin,former sensation,Ricky Martin had officially come out of the closet.Ok…I would have appreciated Ricky letting me know that he was in there. I thought it was just one of those things like “Do you really have to ask?”
Am I supposed to be surprised?Is this the part where I cover my mouth and put on my shocked face? Boy boo! I don’t have time to be hearing this kind of “news” in 2010.You know when this would’ve been really helpful Ricky? Hmmm 10 years ago.You know…when we asked you! And you gave us that line about loving women…or maybe you didn’t say anything.I don’t remember.It wasn’t relevant.It was very clear from the gyrating hips in leather pants and the frosted tips.
But NO instead of telling us you decided to hide out with Rosie O’Donnell.Which is cool.This is not a blog about me having something against gay people.I don’t.I have little to nothing against anyone. BUT do you know how much good you could have done? How many you Latino boys you could have saved with the knowledge that they weren’t alone? How many boys in general? How many lives you could have made better with the news of your sexuality back when you were relevant?
Not that I want to rush people.I don’t.You should take all the time you need.I just…I wish you would’ve been ready then.Ready to save lives.To make high school a little more bearable for at least one kid who was busy listening to you “Living la Vida Loca” all the while pretending to be living la vida hetero SMH.
Come on Ricky did you really think we believed you?I was so sure and so OK with the fact that you were gay that it never occurred to me to see if it was true.You know,it was just one of those things.Didn’t bother me.
In other news: water is wet.My President is Black.My Chrysler is white…so on and so forth.I’m going to hold the rest of my jokes…for now.
But in closing, if everyone thinks that you’re gay.And you actually are gay.You may as well come out because people won’t think any different of you.I bet its easier and less stressful.In addition to being potentially helpful to others.Don’t be selfish.
btw I know that Ricky Martin does a lot for charity.Giving away money and even time aren’t the only ways to not be selfish.Get your life together people.
