Ricky Martin took to the stage to perform a preview of Evita at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City last night (March 12). Ricky, 40, sported a stylish mustache for the evening as he played the role of Che in the production alongside his co-stars.
The singer who just released his own memoirs, hasn’t read the book because his revelations in the book bring back painful memories of the sexuality secret he kept hidden from fans for years.
A choked-up Martin tells The Advocate magazine, “I had it (book) open on my computer and I started reading a paragraph and had to stop. I had to stop. It reminded me of the place I was when I was writing it.”
However, the pop star is glad he chronicled his experiences – because he knew it would help others.
He adds, “When I released the book, the people I met doing the in-store signings were like, ‘Please allow me to give you a hug. You have no idea what you’ve done for me.’ I had no idea it was going to be like that. When I started writing this book I just wanted to let go of a lot of things I was holding within.”
Big hug Ricky!
