"SINGER Ricky Martin has dished the dirt on why he decided to come out of the closet.
The She Bangs hitmaker says he confirmed long-standing rumors that he’s gay because he “could not handle it any more” and wanted to tell the world the truth.
“I’ve had two very spiritual years – two years with a lot of introspection,” Ricky said.
“After 25 years, I wanted silence. It’s what I needed to be able to accept myself as a man, and to take the decision to become a dad.
“I needed to be sound in mind so that they would be okay.
“It could be in the city are people out in the city who won’t like me because I’m gay, and it could be in the city are people who will like me greater because I’m gay.
