As of now, it's just a Twitter sensation by the mere fact of TVaquí Puerto Rico sending a 'tweet' to Perez Hilton asking him to cover their upcoming 'exclusive':
- Original June 15th Twitpic of magazine cover and Perez Hilton request here.
- Perez Hilton post here.
- TVAquí follow-up saying they 'made news' by the mere fact of being mention on Perez here.
Take that with a grain of salt, though. Ricky Martin was probably answering a question that he must have been asked a million times in the last decade and perhaps inadvertently slipped. He has, at times, denied that he is gay and spoken about his relationships with women. At other times he has been more circumspect, telling reporters that his private life is none of their business and that he would rather not say a thing out of respect for his family.
But, seriously, if Ricky Martin wanted to come out, would he really do it in TVaqí? The same magazine that has another headline on the lower right corner of the same cover that says "Travesti Félix Chevremont had his first homosexual encounter at 13 years of age"?
Or the same magazine that runs an online poll asking readers "What do you think about Ricky's sexuality?" and breaks the options down as "He's all man", "He could be bisexual", "He could be homosexual" or "He has as put me in doubt?"
You mean that if Ricky Martin is gay or bisexual he is less of a man because of it? Or that people could doubt his manliness if he was?
Yup, that's TVaquí for ya! Using a supposed 'gay scoop' to draw readers and sending it around to gay sites to have them increase their traffic - at the same time the 'editors' call us less than men. UGH.
