Ricky Martin Wants Some Little Rickys, But with Whom?


The AP reports that Ricky Martin says he wants to adopt kids, "one from each continent" perhaps.

Martin: "It's something we want to begin to create this year, a family of many colors. I want to do it right. I don't want any problems or misunderstandings. ... Some think as celebrities we can manipulate the system to have a quicker adoption."

It's unclear who we refers to, but perhaps he's just using the royal "we". We don't know.

  1. I don't care how often I see that picture. It makes me sigh each time.

    Ricky's friend looks like he's been eating nothing but chicken breasts and steamed broccoli since 1990.

  2. Angelina really needs to be vilified for spawning this shit.

    "Now, there's a prize inside every box of Krusty-Os! Children of the Continents. Collect ’em all!"

  4. I think it was established that was Ricky's cousin in the picture.

  5. After saying "...we want to begin to create this year, a family of many colors." why didn't the idiot reporter ask who he meant by "we"??? Good grief - basic journalism, must have been someone from the White House Press Corp.

  6. Well then, this is one case where fucking your cousin is acceptable. Wait, I meant to only THINK that. Yeah...

  7. Cousin or half-brother? I'm too lazy to scroll through the archives.

  8. I think it might be difficult to find a child from Antarctica.

  14. Hopefully he'll stop smoking before he adopts!

  15. What the heck is he wearing on his ankle?

    Posted by: Wes | Aug 10, 2007 12:39:12 PM

  16. Isn't he just saying "we as celebrities," meaning "people like me, who are celebrities"?

    His English and music may not be perfect, but the rest of him is.

  17. Jesus H. Fucking Christ on crutches.

    Who the fuck does he think he is, Josephine Fucking Baker?

    Why are we even talking about this?

  18. Hopefully he'll stop smoking before he adopts!

  19. Hot damn! These are two guys that can definitely get away with wearing Speedos. If Ricky IS Gay he sure hooked a hottie!

  20. I think he has some splaning to do--Oh Luuucy!!

  21. Whether we were forced out, fell out or jumped out of the closet waiving a rainbow; she's just not there yet. It's a lesson we should all look at as we remember our own comings out. If only I had different parents, if only the boif was a real-man, if only I had enough money to say fuckyou to everbody and mean it.

    It's never that one-note. And he's the one who's hurtin that he can't step into the sunshine.

  22. I could stare at that picture all day.

    In fact, I think I just have.

  23. Ricky does look a little queeny with that pose of cig in one hand and light grasp on the beach blanket with the other.

    The other guy is f-in incredible.

  24. Thing is, he could also have been joking and the reporter took him seriously. Or not. Doesn't really matter.

    The MAIN thing is, if Ricky Martin can help even one kid have a better chance at life, thanks to his money and celebrity, I say GOOD for him and GO for it! It's not like he's Michael Jackson. There's enough misery in the world without bitchy people adding to it by saying you can't do something decent because of who YOU are or because THEY think your motives are suspect. That sort of attitude is diseased.

    One last thing -- if you want to help kids but not do the adoption thing, contact "Save The Children" or "World Vision" or UNICEF" and sponsor a child. Helps everyone a lot more than making kitty-cat comments.

  25. Hmmm...usually "straight" guys just get married to have kids, or pull a Federline and have them anyway. Trying to say something, Ricky? Or did that "we" just slip-out?
