This is a brave admission!
Ricky Martin famously came out as a gay man in 2010, but he recently revealed that during his childhood he would often tease others because he was so uncomfortable with his own sexuality.
- "I look back now and realize I would bully people who I knew were gay. I had internalized homophobia. To realize that was confronting to me. I wanted to get away from that," he confessed to GQ Australia.
The "La Vida Loca" singer decided to reveal his homosexuality after becoming a father to twins Matteo and Valentino.
- "I didn't want them [his sons] growing up in a house of lies... or thinking that there was something wrong with being gay," he added.
We applaud his honesty!
