Ricky Martin On Coming Out: "I've Been The Happiest Man Ever Since!"

Ricky Martin

CBS Sunday Morning profiled out and proud pop star Ricky Martin yesterday as he opens his new residency at the Monte Carlo in Las Vegas.

Ricky was particularly poignant when discussing the coming out process for him, and what kept him in the closet.

From the segment:

“I was afraid of rejection, ’cause unfortunately, first of all, for many years everyone, a lot of people told me that my feelings were evil — ‘What you’re feeling is not godly.’ If I’m feeling this, I’m not a good person.

"No more of that. I’m a good person. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with me. No. No. Enough. Not more of that. And I’ve been the happiest man ever since!”
