Ricky Martin Gets Political

Maybe by making a video deep messages, but Ricky Martin is all hyped to speak out and there’s more than one issue that concerns him.

When the Puerto Rican singer took the stage the Billboard Latin Music Awards on Thursday he used the opportunity to express outrage at new legislation in Arizona that allows cops to question any individual they think is an illegal immigrant.

“This is not in the script,” he started, and after expressing outrage said “You are not alone. We are with you. Put a stop to discrimination. Put a stop to hate. Put a stop to racism… Long live love, long live peace.” He received a standing ovation.

Aw. If they are not alone can they come stay at your house? In which case, I might find myself a hot illegal boyfriend to score an invite, which I was gonna do anyway. It’s Friday, right?
