Ricky Martin (sort of) comes out

Unlike Anderson Cooper, whom everyone knows is gay but we're still dying to hear his hot, breathy confession trip off his gorgeous Vanderbilt lips, no one is waiting for Latin pop superstar of yore, Ricky Martin, to come out.

Not only has he dropped off any kind of radar of relevant pop culture personalities (adopting babies, while fun fodder for Access Hollywood, does not remake or sustain a celebrity career), I think we all just knew there was never really any question about him playing for our team and so his admission is kind of beside the point. Still, whether or not we want (or need) him to come out, he did so in recently interview with the magazine TV Aqui. Martin told the magazine, his heart "could belong to a woman or a man."

We love our bisexual compatriots, and maybe he really does swing both ways, but let's just say we won't be shocked if the slippery sexuality slope has him sliding into full on gay territory at some point in the future. Regardless, Ricky -- if you want to talk it over with someone (or just make out), I'm around.
