The singer still has not digested the way in which a television presenter, according to him, pushed him to respond to rumors of homosexuality, in 2000.
Ricky Martin is still marked by his coming out during a television interview with journalist Barbara Walters. He assured “People” that he was not ready to make revelations about his sexuality during his interview in 2000.
The “Livin ‘La Vida Loca” singer admitted that the host’s questions surprised him. “When she brought up the subject, I felt violated because I just wasn’t ready to come out,” he told “People,” adding, “I kept one. kinda post-traumatic stress disorder because of that. “
The journalist pushed him to his limits to get a clear answer to his question on the rumors of homosexuality. The singer said, “I think sexuality is something that each individual has to deal with in their own way, and that’s all I have to say about it.” And when she insisted, the tension became palpable on set. “I don’t feel it,” the singer said at the time.
Ironically, Ricky Martin confessed to “People” that he would have responded more clearly if she hadn’t been so aggressive with him. Barbara Walters has since apologized to him for pushing him to his limits.
