Ricky Martin Opens Up to Latina Magazine on Returning to Broadway, Marriage and Trying for a GirlPop music sensation, Ricky Martin, takes center stage on the cover of Latina magazine’s February 2012 issue (on sale nationwide on Tuesday, January 10) and opens up about returning to Broadway for the first time in 16 years in Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice’s beloved musical, Evita.
On returning to Broadway: “The people, the critics, are going to be expecting a lot.It has to be the best…You have to have the attitude that, ‘You know what? No one will stop me,’ ” he says. “It’s going to be a magical year.”
On trying for a little girl: “I think that I’ll do it later on this year, so that [the kids] are not too far apart in ages,” Martin says. “A little girl! Dios mío, me muero… But we’re going to talk about that later on. It would be irresponsible to do it now.”
On marriage: Contrary to rumors that he would marry [partner Carlos] González Abella in Spain after the country (where gay marriage is legal) granted the singer citizenship late last year, Martin declares it is too soon for a march down the aisle. “We are not talking about it, we’re not thinking about it,” he says. “But I’m so happy that in Europe we have the option. It’s amazing to think that we can say, ‘I feel like it. I’m ready. Let’s go.’ ”
On coming out: Coming out was liberating “for myself, my family, my core fans,” Martin says. “They feel more in touch with me and I feel more in touch with them. If I feel free, they’re going to feel free and vice versa. It’s contagious.”
